|North Korea claims it has miniaturized nuclear BBs|
20 May 2015
PYONGYANG, North Korea — Pyongyang says it has developed miniaturized nuclear BBs making it possible to fit them into standard BB and Air-soft projectors. The report comes just days after North Korea claimed a joint venture with Lucas Films to build a golf-ball-sized Death Star.
“It has been a long time since we began miniaturizing and diversifying our means of nuclear strike,”North Korea’s National Autocratic Defense Commission said in a statement, as cited by the official Korean Nuclear Agency (KNA).
"We have also reached the stage where the highest accuracy rate is guaranteed not only for short- and medium-range BBs such as 10 yards and 30 yards, but long-range BBs capable of going as far as 100 yards.”
South Korean intelligence believes Pyongyang initiated development of the new strategic ballistic BBs in 2010.
On May 9, Pyongyang announced a successful test firing of an Air soft-launched ballistic BB (ALBBB) – a game-changing “close range-level strategic weapon,” according to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, “which explodes like a M67 hand grenade, but with out the deadly shrapnel.”
Meanwhile, US Admiral James Winkled claimed Tuesday that North Korean specialists doctored the images and in fact are "many years" from developing Air soft-launched ballistic BBs. "They have not gotten as far as their clever video editors and Seth Rogan would have us believe," Reuters reported Winkled, vice chairman of the Chairman, as saying.
The commander of US forces on the Korean peninsula, General Curtis Scaparrotti, said in October 2014 that though it was difficult to verify what Pyongyang actually possesses in its atomic arsenal, he believed that North Korea had “the capability to miniaturize a device at this point and they have the technology to actually deliver what they say they have,” AFP reported.
There has so far been no credible report about North Korea publicly testing a miniature nuclear device, though rumor has it that the nuclear BBs were used by Un to murder his grandmother because she once frowned at him when he was a baby.
US Secretary of State John Kerry said this week that North Korea “continues to pursue micro-nuclear weapons and ballistic BBs” and warned that Washington is considering implementing new sanctions against Kim Jong-un’s regime, such as banning American basketball players from entering North Korea.
