From the link....

ICBMs generally use shrouds if one is "planning on launching multiple reentry vehicles or added countermeasures," David Schmerler, a research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies told Business Insider. 
Shrouds usually indicate that a missile has multiple, independent reentry vehicles for a payload, according to Schermler. A missile with multiple nuclear warheads can not only do more damage to its target, but also pose a greater challenge for missile defenses.
While Schmerler said there is "no indication" that North Korea has developed technology to miniaturize warheads such that it could fit multiple nukes in a single missile, it could have installed countermeasures in the shroud that would render US defenses all but useless. 


That was in July, now North Korea HAS miniaturized their nukes and CAN put multiples on Medium to Long Range missiles.

This is probably what's bothering the US. Once a Mirving warhead splits, it is REALLY hard to stop all of them.

As well, the area of destruction expands, so if the missiles were targeting 20 miles offshore, if it splits open, some of them WILL hit Guam. Like a shot gun effect with nukes.


I think that is the fear here. Because it would be hard to stop this coming to the US.

With a threat like this, I don't see North Korea lasting very long and I believe both sides know it is coming to a point of conflict.

A well placed...Hiding

To be fair, North Korea may have their crappy missiles....but the US is decades ahead of them, the World really.

The first issue is reentry. There has been no proof NK can reenter the atmosphere without burning up. Another issue is they have not proved they can deliver a payload. An empty rocket goes farther. Then there's accuracy.
That said they still need be taken down. Their intentions are clear. There's no sense to wait until they can,

Reentry is an issue, but not for medium range missiles targeting Guam. Maye the title should say, medium range missiles and guam...oh well. minor issue.

Second, the US needs Guam to truly end North Korean aggression. The US can still nuke the f*#k out of North Korea, but Guam is a vital airbase for heavy bombers, stealth and refueling KC-130s.

In Kims mind, if he can knock out Guam, he gets brownie points to satisfy his ego AND he thinks he can prevent a US invasion/strike.

Its like you don't know there's this country called Japan.
