North Korea getting ready for another Nuke test?


This is the same style of activity from when they conducted a nuke test last year.

I wish we would really take over these nuke sites. I feel we could do it just like the stuxnet malware we sent into Iran's nuclear centrifuges.

So what is up with all this chest thumping coming from NK? Is it time for us to send them more money to settle things down for awhile? I hope not, we have appeased them for decades now with no upside for us. Will China do us a favor and throttle Little Kim back a notch? Any thoughts out there from you folks that have a lot better handle on this issue than I do?

'Thermo-nuclear war may break out any moment': Kim Jong-Un tells Trump he will detonate a nuke 'whenever he sees fit' as China warns anyone provoking North Korea will 'pay the price'

The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

There are parallelisms with Castro's regime.
Out of resources,
Utterly failing economy,
Population on the edge of starvation,
Lost support from big brother commy state,

China just sent NK all the coal ore ships home,, without unloading them?? Maybe the Donald promised China favored trading status so it could get our coal?? and at the same time somewhat balance the trade deficit??

I wonder if the Donald doesn't encourage Japan to step up to the plate??

Heh. He's been a real-estate developer; maybe he could convince someone to give up one of their Spratly's in exchange for some PRC-on-Nork wall-to-wall counselling.

UN report reveals how North Korea sources missile technology

It's a dirty business this learning and building war.

UN report reveals how North Korea sources missile technology

As the US ratchets up pressure on China to do more to help rein in North Korea, a UN report shows how Pyongyang uses technology smugglers and financial institutions to develop missiles and nuclear weapons. China figures prominently in the report.

UN members have imposed an array of trade sanctions on North Korea after it violated UN Security Council rulings to halt its testing of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.

However, an eight-member UN panel said North Korea is intensifying such tests and that UN member states are not doing enough to enforce the sanctions.

North Korea “is flouting sanctions through trade in prohibited goods, with evasion techniques that are increasing in scale, scope and sophistication,” the panel’s report dated Feb. 28 says.

The report cites Chinese components and European parts acquired through China that were recovered from the debris of a North Korean missile launch. They included what the report described as an electromagnetic interference filter for a camera, pressure transmitters, and ball bearings traced to Russia.

While the report did not say what function the transmitters and filter performed, the transmitters were manufactured in China and sold to a Beijing-based company that then sold them to Beijing Xinjianteng Century Technical Technology.

The company did not provide the identity of the North Korean buyer, the report said.

The debris was acquired from the February 2016 test of North Korea’s Unha-3 space launch vehicle that was developed from the Taepodong-2 long-range missile.

“That case demonstrates the continuing critical importance of high-end, foreign-sourced components in manufacturing the Unha-3, and the ability of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to diversify its procurement channels, even for the same components,” the report said.

In another case, the UN found that North Korea set up a front company in Malaysia called Glocom that was used to produce military communications gear.
