WASHINGTON — House Armed Services Committee member Trent Franks, an Arizona Republican, warned that North Korea has the ability to miniaturize their warheads making it easier for a missile to reach the United States.
“Right now the indications are that North Korea has been able to develop technology to miniaturize their warheads which allows them to put those on missile frames,” he told The Daily Caller Friday. “And they are developing very quickly the missile technology to range the entire United States.”
North Korea claimed it detonated a nuclear warhead Friday that could be mounted on to a ballistic missile...
The Arizona Republican went on to say, “It won’t be long before North Korea can threaten the United States very effectively. And we need that missile defense –– that capability to prevent that. North Korea and Iran are our biggest threats right now in terms of missile technology. Pakistan, of course, has developed a lot of nuclear warhead capabilities that is very frightening as well.”
He later said, “North Korea would not be in the position they are in today with their nuclear warheads if it hadn’t been for Bill Clinton. And if we elect Mrs. Clinton to the presidency of the United States it ought to make all of us sleep with the lights on.”
