Satellite images could well have unveiled North Korea’s secret weapon.
Experts have said images taken over rural areas in North Korea show Kim’s network of secret military facilities, including a number of underground testing bases.
According to Dr James Hoare, who worked at the British Embassy in Pyongyang, the photos reveal Jong-un’s network of underground nuclear testing plants.
The news comes as Kim staged massive parades in Pyongyang to strike fear into US and South Korean troops.
Dr Hoare warned saying
You may know what is on the surface, and you may have suspicions about other places, but there is no guarantee any strike at its nuclear facilities would take it all out.
Then you run the danger of provoking them without disarming them.
A number of North Korean defectors have allegedly helped America work out the locations of a number of the countries estimated 6,000-8,000 underground bases.
It’s also believed that there are nearly 100 secret tunnels that go under the border with South Korea, designed to move infantry quickly should war ever break out in the region.
However, at least we can take solace in that fact that US and South Korean defence official said that an attempted missile launch by North Korea failed.
The South Korean defence ministry added: “North Korea attempted to test an unidentified type of missile from [its eastern port of] Sinpo,” they then said that the launch on Sunday had “failed”.
This comes after North Korea warned that they are ‘ready for war’ if the United States attacks the region and showed off ‘long-distance’ ballistic missiles at a major military display.
Choe Ryong-hae, who is believed to be the country’s second most powerful official, said:
We’re prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war. We are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks.
On Friday, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned conflict could break out at any moment. He added that if war occurred ‘there could be no winner.
Since President Trump took office in January, tensions between Pyongyang and Washington have reached an all time high. Trump isn’t happy with the fact that China hasn’t done more to stop North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes. This is why the US is now looking to step in.
