North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is reportedly loading the deadly biological agent anthrax onto his intercontinental ballistic missiles; putting the devastating weapon of mass destruction in range of every major American city.
According to the Daily Mail, South Korean officials believe the despot is retrofitting his rocket arsenal to accommodate the deadly disease, conducting experiments to see if the agent could withstand the searing heat of a warhead’s re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere from space.
The report comes as the region braces for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics, with military experts and government officials worried that international gathering would be “celebrated” by future nuclear tests and missile launches by the rogue regime.
Earlier this year, Kim Jong Un raised alarm bells in capitals throughout the world after he tested an advanced ICBM capable of striking the east coast of the US. In response, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said this week that the US would be unwilling to co-exist with a nuclear-equipped North Korea.
“There is but one party that has carried out illegal detonation of illegal devices, there is but one party that launches intercontinental ballistic missiles … that is the Kim regime in North Korea,” Tillerson said.
CAUGHT ON CAMERA: The Moment North Korean Defector DASHES Across DMZ
It’s not uncommon for North Korean defectors to find their way into South Korea, but nearly all cases involve routing through China before heading towards the staunch US ally.
Current estimates say only four people have successfully crossed the DMZ in several years.
CRISIS IN KOREA: 4.7 Million North Koreans Join Kim's Army to 'Destroy' USA
North Korean state-run media claimed Thursday that nearly five million citizens enlisted or re-enlisted in the country’s military to help defend the communist nation should war break out on the Korean peninsula.
According to USA Today, North Korean officials released a statement saying that millions of citizens have joined Kim’s army to “bring fire” to the United States. Over one million women enlisted to help the dictator “counter” American forces in the region.
“Over the past six days, millions of young men expressed their will for military enlistment to counter the U.S. force, and even some 1.22 million women vowed to voluntarily follow suit,” said the news agency.
The statement from Pyongyang comes hours after the Chinese government announced they would be shutting down all Korean-backed businesses operating in China within 120 days. Beijing’s new policy effectively cripples the North Korean economy, making it nearly impossible to import fuel, food, and other necessities.
China’s decision comes on the heels of punishing, US-led sanctions from the United Nations following Kim’s continued nuclear and missile tests. Earlier this month, dictator Kim Jong Un successfully tested a hydrogen bomb and launched a medium-range ballistic missile over Japanese Territory.
In response, President Trump warned Kim that the United States was prepared to “totally destroy” his regime should he continue to expand his weapons and missile programs; saying that “Rocket Man” Kim Jong Un was on a “suicide mission” against the United States.
