North Korea is building more intercontinental ballistic missiles, according to a new report.
The Washington Post on Monday reported that satellite photos show work is underway on at least one liquid-fueled ICBMs. The work is taking place in Sanumdong, near Pyongyang. The Post based its report on “officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe classified intelligence.”
The Post report said that despite actions to dismantle the Sohae Satellite Launching Station on North Korea’s west coast, North Korea is largely keeping its nuclear program going. The new report comes several weeks after President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
The Post, citing intelligence gathered by unspecified U.S. agencies, said that “senior North Korean officials have discussed their intention to deceive Washington about the number of nuclear warheads and missiles they have, as well as the types and numbers of facilities, and to rebuff international inspectors.”
Satellite photos show work on at least one Hwasong-15 missile — the model that could reach the United States — according to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Images show that the plant “is not dead, by any stretch of the imagination,” said Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. – READ MORE[divider][/divider]
Trump began by describing what Obama told him about his relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. He said, “When I met with President Obama, it sounded like he was ready to go to war with North Korea,” Trump said, “Sounded like he was ready to go to war.”
The president continued, “I said, ‘Did you ever speak to him?’” Trump said the answer was “No.” Trump continued, “I said, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to speak to him? Did you ever speak to him?’ ‘No.’ But it sounded to me — respectfully, like he was ready to go to war.”
Trump described how war with Korea would cost many American and Korean lives.
“Who knows ultimately what will happen, but for nine months, no nuclear tests, no rockets going up, no missiles going over Japan. We got our three hostages back and we did pay anything,” Trump said to thunderous applause, “They’ve already blown up nuclear areas. They took down the propaganda that was all over North Korea, signs, music, all of this stuff taken down. It’s gone.”- READ MORE[divider][/divider]
In a Tuesday interview in Washington, D.C., counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway spoke about the accomplishments of the Trump administration and Trump’s foreign policy.
Kellyanne said Trump will “Stop apologizing for America” and instead “strengthen her around the world.”
In a final turn of the knife, Kellyanne said “The last president was given the Nobel Peace Prize. This president might actually earn it.” President Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize just months into his presidency. – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”https://www.westernjournal.com/satellite-photos-show-kim-jong-un-going-against-his-word-developing-brand-new-missiles/” target=”_blank”]
