And manages to actually set off..lets say 2 {assuming he has them}  will that whole area be unlivable? Serious question
don't know the effects are from whatever he may have in terms of devastation and radiation

We've tested our on American soil.  Plus theirs will probably be smaller than our smallest and they previously tested them underground.

Edit: Do you mean testing in their country or launching them at us?

Depends on yield and terrain I believe.

Best Korea has nukes but no reliable delivery system. They're not nuking anything except maybe themselves.

Smartest thing they could do would be to get one on a sub and drive it up to a target and surface, but I'm sure they would detected well before they arrived and probably sank before they could detonate.

No.

There will be several hundred thousand dead in Seoul, but like with Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they will rebuild.

It will be like Chernobyl and 3-mile Island. You can't just wash away the radiation with soap and water.

They're so close to Second Best Korea that they could shoot it over on a catapult.

Not for long.  This is what Hiroshima looks like today:

No it won't. 

Chernobyl was basically a sustained nuclear reaction which ran uncontrolled until it ran out of fuel. A nuclear weapon is an instantaneous reaction which runs out of fuel immediately.

Tokyo and the US military bases in the area would be the most "logical" target.

It would hurt our ability for sustain operations in the region, and it would goad Japan into a reaction, which would piss off the South Koreans, the Chinese, the Vietnamese, and pretty much everyone else in Asia big time.

The site they attacked would be livable after cleanup.  North Korea, not so much.

Because a ship or a cargo/commercial airliner is not a reliable delivery system. One going off in a harbor of NYC or right near another economic engine that this nation relies would be devastating to this nations economy.

Theoretically the nuclear material would be detected before it got into the harbor or over American air space. 

Also, a nuclear weapon is most effective when airburst detonated at about 10,000 feet.

Thinking about picking up some north korean property in a few weeks and wondering how long you'll have to hold it to make some real money?

IIRC the really dangerous fallout produced by a nuclear weapon has an extremely short halflife, so it doesn't take long for it to peter out to safe levels.

Chernobyl/Fukushima/etc are a different story.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 6:16:34 PM EDT
I think the really big deal about the one they are going to test next is the first one small enough to mount on a ballistic missal. Everything they have tested before was too large to mount on something that would fly with it.
Google about how Hawaii is preparing for such a hit, 4600 miles away and they could be reached from NK with what they have now. May all be over reacting but it is serious stuff. Soul would take a beating if anything broke out.

Depends on the bomb.  We talking a thermo(fusion/fission) or atomic (fission), or neutron?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 6:23:33 PM EDT
I imagine he has something along the lines of of what we hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with... probably a little more powerful.

Those places are still thriving cities.

We aren't talking Chernobyl level abandon and never return.  Or Bikini atoll either... 

You'd want to steer clear of the area for a while... say 20 years... but then nature does a pretty good job of washing away radio active dust... so while you might not want to farm in the area... it could be fine for city living in not all that long a time frame.

Bombs and power plants are rather different beasts.  The half lives of the materials used and those they decay into are different.  The ones in power plant last longer than the ones used in bombs.

Hmmm.

Tunnels under the DMZ, put it on the bed of of DPRK pickup and drive it right up to Seoul.  They have the tunnels and some of the discovered ones are tourist stops from what I understand.  It won't be an airburst but it will still be effective in their minds.

Actually more like a couple of weeks or so, supposedly we swept the area a month later and found little measurable radiation.
