The missile was able to reach a height of 2,800 miles along a lofted trajectory (by comparison, the International Space Station is only about 240 miles above the Earth). Now, the U.S. capital is a bit farther away, at about 6,850 miles from Pyongyang. Experts are claiming however that along a standard trajectory, this missile may have a range of over 8,100 miles. So the verdict seems to be that their nukes could now theoretically reach Washington D.C., or just about anywhere in the contiguous U.S.

Did they ever get the missile defense straightened out?
Last I heard they couldn't hit Oprah's ass with a tennis racket.

They are unsure of where it could reach because the nuclear warhead will add a considerable weight.
It's really moot though. They are working at a feverish pace to nuke us, it's going to happen. I also worry they will sell nuclear warheads to Muslim terrorists, because then they reap the benefits of annihilating part of the U.S. without immediate retaliation.

It's not going to fucking happen.
Did the USSR nuke us?
Did we nuke them?
They used to have drills for kids to hide under their desks.
Hell Pakistan and India have nukes and they stopped fighting since.
It's a deterrent.

I gotta say, that's pretty sanguine, coming from the guy who wrote this in '15,000 Scientists Warn On Climate Change' a few days ago:

Those in the know and in control have long ago faced this reality.
Including the government.
It will probably be a while. But it's inevitable.
Eventually there will be an inside and an outside.
And inside has been systematically moving to control food supplies for years now.

It used to be that this sort of belief required a tin foil hat.
Today it involves taking off the foil hat and the rose colored glasses.
But hey. You want the world of Star Trek?

If it was a proper test, then they had a dummy payload on it that is equal to the nuclear warheads that it is intended to carry. Of course, this is North Korea that we are talking about, so they might have lofted the missile with no payload to make their capability seem greater than it is.

Your concern about them selling their nukes to terrorists is a valid one, but I think that the North Koreans would be too paranoid about that providing an opening for us to get our hands on their tech, and they would be worried that the world would blame them for it regardless. We can almost certainly verify data from a nuclear detonation site and determine if the bomb was of North Korean origin.
