US intelligence agencies determine that
North Korea is constructing new missiles: report

Quote:
U.S. intelligence agencies indicate North Korea is building new missiles, officials told The Washington Post on Monday, weeks after President Trump declared the nation is "no longer a Nuclear Treat."

Satellite images taken in recent weeks appear to show that at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are being worked on at a large research facility in Sanumdong, outside of the capital of Pyongyang.

This is the same facility where the country first produced intercontinental ballistic missiles that could reach the U.S., the newspaper noted.

The classified intelligence comes weeks after Trump's June summit with leader Kim Jong Un.

“We see them going to work, just as before,” said one U.S. official who spoke to The Post on the condition of anonymity.

U.S. spy networks can reportedly view supply trucks and other vehicles around the missile facility daily.

A bright-red covered trailer, identical to the those the country used to transport previous ICBMs, was photographed on July 7 at the facility’s loading area.

Independent missile experts told the newspaper that they are observing the same activity.

The facility is “not dead, by any stretch of the imagination,” said Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

The nonprofit group analyzed the photos obtained from satellite firm Planet.

“It’s active. We see shipping containers and vehicles coming and going,” Lewis said. “This is a facility where they build ICBMs and space-launch vehicles.”

Oh yes.
Trump fixed this one up good!

I really want to give a shout out to all the Trump supporters who bragged for weeks on end on how Trump was finally going to change our relationship with North Korea and bring lasting peace, and how he totally deserves that Nobel Prize.

We told you at the time, don't jump the gun. North Korea shoudn't be so readily trusted as they have had a long record of bullsh-tting us, and Trump's record for "deal-making" as president so far had been abysmal. We told you that Trump was accomplishing nothing except giving North Korea recognition and visibility and canceling our military exercises with South Korea.

In return we pretty much got nothing but a photo OP.

Are we still pulling out of South Korea?
I hope Europe takes up the slack.

No...

We all knew this will take awhile, and we all knew that it was far from a done deal, and we all knew there's a chance North Korea would try to do to Trump what they did to Clinton...

But one little meeting has gotten no missile testing for over 1/2 year, the remains of POWs that were MIA for decades (DNA tests pending), and freed a few hostages...


BUT WE GOT PRETTY MUCH NOTHING BUT A PHOTO OP!!!!...

Say that to the hostages' families faces sometime...see where that gets ya...

I didn't hear about the hostages; that is good news.
As for bodies of the dead the parents are long dead. A living Korean war vet who was really young , like snuck in when he was 14 is 80 ish.
I am more concerned that we are leaving SK high and dry.
