He pointed to large-scale military exercises every year using “nuclear assets” and said what is more dangerous is what he called a US plan to stage a “secret operation aimed at the removal of our supreme leadership”.

WORLD WAR 3: Kim Jong-un building MORE nuclear weapons

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/846318/World-War-3-North-Korea-US-Kim-Jong-Un-Donald-Trump-nuclear-weapon-missileThe hermit kingdom has brought the world to the brink of World War 3 through their military advances, with Kim Jong-un’s military henchmen recently developing an Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of striking the continental US.

Now a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency has claimed the secretive state are continuing to develop materials for use in nuclear weapons, while construction is underway to expand their facility in Yongbyon.

In a report the IAEA said: “There were indications consistent with the reactor’s operation, including steam discharges and the outflow of cooling water,”

“Based on past operational cycles, the current cycle could be expected to continue until late 2017.”

The report went on to claim there were signs of the Kim regime enriching uranium, adding: “There were indications consistent with the use of the reported centrifuge enrichment facility located within the plant.” WORLD WAR 3: Kim Jong-un building MORE nuclear weapons | World | News | Express.co.uk

 

N Korea Critical Levels of NUKES, BIOLOGICAL, CHEMICAL Weapons

The time for dealing with the North Korea problem may be sooner than many people realize, according to information from Joseph Bermudez Jr., writing in “38 North,” a John Hopkins University website that deals specifically with issues related to North Korea. He believes they are secretly developing biological weapons in camouflaged facilities dispersed across their nation. Additionally, the construction activity at their Sohae Satellite Launching Station is still ongoing.

Bermudez says the rogue nation either has or soon will have “operational nuclear weapons,” an “ongoing offensive biological weapons research program,” and a “longstanding chemical weapons program with a militarily significant inventory of these weapons.”

He says the DPRK has constructed their nuclear, biological and chemical programs in “extreme secrecy,” using “camouflage, concealment and deception operations to mask the NBC infrastructure.” They also utilize “legitimate, defense or civilian industrial and research infrastructures” to build weapons that are “simply unknown” outside the North Korean government.

Bermudez estimates there are approximately 1,500-3,000 North Koreans and 25-30 entities involved in the biological weapons program, 3,500-5,000 people and 25-50 entities involved in the chemical weapons program, and about 9,000-15,000 people and 100-150 entities involved in the “research, development, testing or production of nuclear weapons.”

He also noted, in a separate report, that satellite imagery indicates active construction at the Sohae station. He maintains that the good condition of the structures, the vertical engine test stand, launch pad and gantry tower, means that either a new engine test or satellite launch could “occur with little or no advance warning.”

Under the madman sociopath Kim Jong Un, the possession of the types of weapons discussed and their delivery systems is a very serious threat to the world and particularly South Korea, Japan, the United States and our allies. The nature of the threat indicates we’ve talked too much already. It’s time to make it impossible for the regime to strike and to eliminate the maniac in charge while we’re at it. Read more…

 

Here’s how a North Korean nuclear attack on the US would play out

http://www.businessinsider.com/how-north-korea-would-attack-the-us-2017-7US plans in the event of a North Korean missile attack would center around spotting the launches early on and prepare to intercept them.

The US has had plans since 2013 to have 44 missile interceptors stationed in Alaska and California by the end of 2017, and North Korea would need at least that long to perfect the missiles for its attack.

But missile interceptors are far from a guarantee, Lauren Grego, the senior scientist in the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said on Twitter last week. The “single shot kill probability” of an ICBM is unknown, according to Grego,  but is unlikely to be higher than a 50% even in “optimistic conditions.” Here’s how a North Korean nuclear attack on the US would play out – Business Insider
