Probable Reason for North Korea's Nuclear Show and Tell

Stanford professor, Siegfried Hecker, was taken on a tour by North Korea showing off its nuclear arsenal. The US scientist shows a troubling account of the capabilities of North Korea having such a dangerous weapon and he says that there must be a sense of urgency in the United States and its allies to do something about it. Check out this interesting CNN interview.

This report was made almost just a day before the recent attack of the North on South Korea. North Korea struck the South because of the latter's military exercises with the US near the border. The US scientist's tour seems to be timed with the North Korean strike yesterday to give a pretext to its military superiority over its Southern counterpart.
