BREAKING: Trump Admin Issues Nuclear Warning About N. Korea …
North Korea’s provocations against the United States and her allies haven’t gone unnoticed by our military. As efforts are being made to better defend ourselves against potential missile launches in the future, a new report has found that we might be testing these systems in real situations much earlier than anticipated.
The Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has issued a new assessment in which they have shaved two years off their previous forecast concerning North Korea’s ICBM tests. Technological advancements are proceeding at a rate that shocked analysts – North Korea could have the capability to attack the U.S. with nuclear weapons as of next year. The Second Cold War begins in 2018.
In a disturbing finding, recent missile tests have shown a surprising level of technical advancement previously thought unlikely for the isolated North Korean regime. Experts concluded the July 4th missile that was launched had a range that could at least reach Alaska, if not further.
“This is a big deal: It’s an ICBM, not a ‘kind of’ ICBM,” said Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. “There’s no reason to think that this is going to be the maximum range.
Victor Cha, former director for Asian affairs under George Bush’s National Security Council, said “In the past five years, we have seen significant, and much more rapid than expected development of their ballistic-missiles capability. Their capabilities have exceeded our expectations on a consistent basis.
The DIA concluded that a reliable ICBM with nuclear capabilities would be produced sometime in 2018. With one of the few remaining technical barriers for ICBM development- the challenge of atmospheric re-entry – poised to be overcome within the coming few weeks, the North Korean government is making startling progress.
Trump promised in a speech he made while he was in Poland that he was going to do his utmost to stop North Korea’s missile development program. “I have some pretty severe things that we are thinking about. That doesn’t mean we are going to do it. I don’t draw red lines.
