Re: 15 September: North Korea has fired another missile toward Japan

Having read it now, I think that statement is probably an error, without some reference cited for that claim. I'm dubious about the additional claim that that possess "nanoweapons" as well, a subject which the author has also published a book on recently, although no definition of what that describe...

Re: 15 September: North Korea has fired another missile toward Japan

Oh no.

Yeah, news to me too, although I knew it was a possibility. I'm still skeptical, not having read the article yet. It would be a huge deal if they were even suspected of possessing a viable smallpox sample.

Re: 15 September: North Korea has fired another missile toward Japan

Moon mentioned something that seems to go overlooked in light of the significant nuclear developments: DPRK bioweapon capabilities. I haven't seen or heard much about the extent of what they possess and can deliver. What kind of pathogens do they have, and to what degree have they been weaponized? I...

Re: (URGENT) N.K leader watches H-bomb to be loaded on new ICBM: KCNA

Regarding if and when we strike we are limited in the short term by Moon's opinion changing, at least until a launch is seen as a direct threat to US territory. To launch a strike on DPRK puts ROK at serious risk even if just a retaliatory response. To take preemptive military action without ROK's ...

Re: North Korea possibly conducts 6th nuclear test

Previous NK tests did not produce much detectable radiation.

Re: (URGENT) N.K leader watches H-bomb to be loaded on new ICBM: KCNA

They definitely don't have thermonuclear capabilites yet, so if they say this warhead is one in the same way that previous one were, I'm not as concerned. The next logical step in their program would be a move to thermonuclear devices, but the language doesn't strike me as announcing such a breakthr...

Re: DRPK 26 august

Or, more interestingly, did they fail in a different way?
Paccom has released ambiguously worded statements in response to failed launches in the past, perhaps implying sabotage or subterfuge was involved.

Re: DPRK \ August 10th

If China was still exercising that level of direct control, we wouldn't be in this position of possibly going to war with China. If they were in control of them before, then they have lost control over major decisions in Pyongyang at this point, and for this reason, they may be willing to cut them ...

Re: DPRK \ August 10th

Fyi, the DEFCON references in those quotes are specific to that region, and wholly distinct from general US DEFCON (and this site's of course).
