Nuclear warheads are only a means of leverage for negotiations. No one is willing to use them because there's no benefit in doing so.You only produce them for other countries to take you more seriously & so they don't laugh at your demands.

nuclear weapons are extremely powerful. the only problem with them is that with the strengths and quantities of nuclear weapons that countries have today, they can destroy their own country if they were ever to be launched.

The topic was somewhat misleading but if you read the story, it says nothing about North.
