North Korea after decades of effort has a missile potentially capable of reaching the continental United States, but analysts say Pyongyang has yet to show the ICBM can inflict serious damage once it gets there.However, whether North Korea can arm the missile with a nuclear warhead and protect it throughout the flight are different questions entirely.In an article posted at the 38 North website, Elleman said the video showed the re-entry vehicle shedding small radiant objects at an altitude of 4 to 5 kilometers (2.5 to 3 miles).Granted, it's impossible to know how the warhead would have performed if North Korea had launched the missile for real.
