Photon Guy, Firstly, the NORKs don’t have enough weapons to do a “full scale nuclear assault against the USA” Nor do they have the throw-weight in missile technology, yet.
What they do have is the ability, as you pointed out, to launch an EMP attack over Kansas. (Well, they probably could do so) Rest assured, though, that the US certainly does have the ability to detect a NORK missile launch the moment it leaves the pad. Regardless of the size, no matter how small… we’ll see it. Should one come toward the USA, our response will be to put our nuclear forces on immediate full alert. There’s no congressional notification for this. President Trump has his Warrant Officer with the Football close at hand, 24/7, just for this contingency. In my opinion a LAUNCH or a NO LAUNCH decision would be made well before the attacking missile got over Kansas, and would be executed just as quickly.
