    In theory if he has (as he claims) ICBMs capable of hitting the US East Coast then he has the capability to hit the UK - I imagine that the paper is referencing the statement to that effect that Cameron made during a debate on whether Britain should maintain a nuclear deterrent in the 21st century.

    I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it though, the overwhelming likelihood is that he lacks the both the rocket tech to get an ICBM that far (not to mention accuracy) and the technological sophistication required to make a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on an ICBM and even if he did, why would he target us rather than the US/South Korea/Japan?

    Edit: It is interesting that Cameron has stated it as fact that NK has ICBMs capable of reaching the UK (and therefore all of the US) though, either he's misspoken and made a prat of himself or there is intelligence on NKs missile/nuclear capability which has not been made public.

    Agreed. Some people actually get frightened by stuff like that.
