46291753 story Are Some of North Korea's Long-Range Missiles Fakes? 322 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday May 08, 2013 @08:13AM from the it's-a-faaaaaake! dept. gbrumfiel writes "North Korea has not been shy in announcing plans to destroy the United States, but questions remain over whether it has the nukes or the missiles to do so. Now NPR reports on open-source intelligence showing that one of the North's most 'advanced' weapons might actually be a decoy. Six KN-08 missiles were paraded last year, but each showed differences in the way they were assembled. Is it all a bluff? Or are the missiles part of a real program?"
