PYONGYANG (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There's been a fresh round of war-like rhetoric from North Korea Thursday, with the country claiming it has "powerful striking means" on standby.
Leaders in Seoul and Washington are speculating that the North is preparing to test-fire a missile designed to be able to reach the United States territory of Guam.
The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency has concluded that North Korea is probably at the point where it could arm a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead.
But the agency says the weapon wouldn't be very reliable.
That assessment was revealed at a public hearing in Washington.
