Military experts are warning that North Korea has recently improved its weapons and military capabilities across the board and is far more dangerous than previously thought.

North Korea

Sputnik reports:

Last week, it was reported that the country had developed an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear payload to the US mainland. Only a crucial insulation issue remained to be solved to make the device truly threatening.

Now, a South Korean official has repeated the warning about the North’s missile capabilities, a Korean think tank is reporting that their neighbor’s ability to engage in special operations warfare has improved and North Korea has announced that it is developing a long-range aerial drone.

Director General of the North Korean Nuclear Affairs Bureau in South Korea Lee Sang-haw said in a government briefing that the missiles could travel much farther than previously thought, and that “Europe is also within range,” as well as other NATO countries. North Korea’s KN-08 missile, which is under development, is expected to have a range of more than 7,500 miles, the Daily Star Online reported December 17.

No more detail was offered. A senior South Korean official told the Daily Star that he couldn’t go into precise detail about classified information. “There are different assessments of North Korea’s ballistic missile capabilities, but what is for sure is as they repeat tests, they learn something important,” he would say.

Meanwhile, the Korea Institute for Defense Analyses (KIDA) has determined that North Korea has improved its special operations capacity over the years, it said December 18. According to testimony from North Korean defectors familiar with the country’s military, Kim Jung-Un has not only been chasing nuclear dreams, but has been building up his conventional military forces, the Yonhap News Agency reports.

This includes creating more special forces units and better training and equipping them, a source told Yonhap. Among them is a battalion specifically directed to attack the South Korean presidential office, a simulation of which was conducted last week.

Seoul is currently assessing North Korea’s military capabilities across the board for a report to be submitted to its Defense Ministry and Joint Chiefs of Staff in the first half of next year, the source said.

South Korea and Japan days ago had the first direct exchange of classified military intelligence on North Korea under a new intelligence-sharing pact that came into force last month. Insiders told Yonhap Japan may be interested in the new South Korean report.

On the same day, Pyongyang announced that a long-endurance aerial drone it has been developing is in the process of flight testing at greater distances than the drones the country currently uses.

A South Korean defense official told Yonhap that Seoul had detected many test flights by drones since early 2016. North Korea is estimated to have 300 observation drones and roughly 10 that are in some way armed.

North Korea this year has tested two nuclear devices and test launched dozens of missiles from varying terrain. Yohap reports that since 2000, 294 North Korean soldiers have defected to the South, 20 to 30 of whom have held command posts.

It's understandable anyone that could get out of a communist country, I see nothing wrong with that and I'm sure the South has done there home work on all of the north who has defected. During WWII many German people defected to America and many whom were Germany's best scientist. There were many that came that shouldn't have and we are suffering many of the socialist idea from there raising in a communist leader.

We are looking at a up coming President that has proved himself long before becoming President and the political status can't stand that fact. He has done more already before taking office then Obama has done in 8 years, why for one reason Trump isn't a Liar or fake He's the real thing. A man that says what he means, and means what he says. That alone is far more then what Obama has going for him.

Obama had the money of the Rick power hungry people in the world like George Soros. Obama also had the left wing media and Hollywood loons. Big difference wouldn't you say. Trump wasn't bought and paid for by media, special Interests, or other country's buying him, He didn't take money from anyone from other country's or our enemies.

One thing for sure, they are not afraid of war, and it is a bit of concern, they seem to stick to them self but have been known to mess around in issues, to just flex a muscle, to say we can.

 It is also well noted they are backed up by China, to a point, even though China has had a issue with them from time to time.

Donald Trump Fuels Viral ‘Loser CNN’ Meme

ALERT ALERT

Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.

 

Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update. https://youtu.be/h0WB08SHmuQ
