The North Korean Nuclear Threat Summed Up By One Cartoon

Written by  TFPP Writer

Robert Gehl reports that the failed missile test in North Korea may have been an act of sabotage by the United States government.

A former British Foreign Secretary is telling the BBC that American intelligence used cyber warfare before to thwart North Korean missile test and that there is a “strong belief” that the Trump Administration was behind the regime’s failed launch.

Sir Malcolm Rifkind said: “It could have failed because the system is not competent enough to make it work, but there is a very strong belief that the US through cyber methods has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts of tests and making them fail.”

But Rifkind said that despite the failure, North Korea remains a “serious nuclear threat.”

“Don’t get too excited by that, they’ve also had quite a lot of successful tests,” he said. “They are an advanced country when it comes to their nuclear weapons program. That still remains a fact – a hard fact.”

South Korea reported that the launch was attempted near the Sinpo region – the same area where the North tested a ballistic missile in March. Officially, US officials said that the missile exploded on the Launchpad, but they said they weren’t sure what kind of weapon it was.

"Soy Sauce Stain" is on the verge of going the way of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (We can always hope).
