US nukes in SK?

A Reuters article, quoting the Russian Itar-Tass news agency, which was itself quoting a North Korean source, says that North Korea believes the United States has placed nuclear weapons in South Korea.

"(North Korea) has practically no doubts that there are U.S. nuclear weapons in the south of the Korean Peninsula," the source told Tass. "North Korea is forced, in the interests of self-defense, to enhance its nuclear capability."

"Without eliminating the threat from the United States and without relevant guarantees being offered, Pyongyang will not agree to give up its right to possess a defensive nuclear shield whatever the pressure from outside."

I'm not sure why we'd need to place nukes on South Korean soil when we can simply park a submarine off the peninsula's shore and lob nukes that way.

Another yawn, then...
