The New York Sun has this dispatch from London’s Daily Telegraph:

North Korea could have up to eight nuclear weapons in the coming months and might produce a dozen atomic bombs every year by the end of the decade, a London think tank predicted yesterday….The IISS recognizes that it is even harder to obtain reliable information about North Korea.In particular,the institute says there is no firm evidence that the country has developed nuclear weapons, despite its bombastic claims to have a nuclear “deterrent.” This view was reinforced by Siegfried Hecker, a former director of the Los Alamos nuclear research laboratory, who visited Korea in an unofficial American delegation earlier this month. He told a Senate committee that North Korea appeared to have enough expertise to extract plutonium from 8,000 spent fuel rods from its reactor at Yongbyon but he saw no evidence that the plutonium had been turned into workable nuclear weapons.

… and what do we do when one of those bombs gets sold to some Middle Eastern terrorist group who puts it into a shipping container and detonates it in an American harbor?
