North Korea preparing more ‘explosive nuclear missile test at secretive launch site’

South Korean officials have assessed the hermit kingdom’s latest “successful” missile test and believe the North is ready to carry out another blast at its nuclear explosion site in its northeastern province.

The South Korean Ministry of National Defence said: “There is a possibility that North Korea is likely to test its nuclear warhead and missile capabilities through a nuclear test with more explosive power.”

Defence Minister Song Young-moo told lawmakers that it was not known whether the secretive state had mastered the technology to make a nuclear warhead small enough to be mounted on a ballistic missile.

He said: “It is too early to say that the latest test was to assess its atmospheric re-entry capability.”

Technology for “atmospheric re-entry” is a key element in developing an ICBM as the missile needs to withstand heat and pressure when it re-enters the atmosphere from space.

To date, the missile tests have involved shooting a missile up and down with an ever increasing duration of the flight.
North Korea v USA explosive latest pictures
Mon, July 31, 2017
Images depict how tensions have escalated between North Korea and the United States. Kim Jong-Un boasted of North Korea’s ability to strike any target in the US after a second ICBM test that weapons experts said on July 29 could even bring New York into range – in a potent challenge to President Donald Trump

If North Korea shot a missile at the US, it would enter the atmosphere at a shallow angle and undergo longer exposure to intense heat and pressure, which could destroy the missile or knock it off course.

The Pentagon said that while the test missile had a lofted trajectory rather than the more direct one required to reach the US, the military takes the threat seriously.

The North Korean leader claimed after the latest test that the reclusive country could make a nuclear attack on America “in any place, anytime”.

North Korean propaganda has enjoyed reporting on the tests

The North-South border has been an area of tension for years

Harrowingly, some US-based experts said the launch showed the missile could have been capable of going as far as Denver and Chicago, with New York and Washington just out of range.

South Korea previously proposed military talks aimed at easing tensions between the two Koreas.

Song added: “As there is a need to talk with an enemy during war, (the government) will continue to call for dialogue.”

The South has also discussed ways to end activities on the border that have fuelled tension, like the North’s loudspeaker propaganda and the joint US–South Korean military exercises.

The fact that North Korea has totally flouted UN rules/laws by doing nuclear bomb tests, has launched missiles and no action has been taken against the hermit kingdom is beyond me. I know it seems hypocritical to say that North Korea shouldn’t have nuclear weapons while so many other countries have, but when you think of how tyranical and unstable their leadership is, surely the threat posed by them must be cancelled out. The great powers must come together on this, hammer out a strategy to sort the problem out as one, because the threat to world peace is at stake. President Trump must meet the leaders of Russia and China, instead of berating them ~ the fate of the world is in your hands.
