North Korea to expand rocket programme

North Korea to expand rocket programme

"The Kim (Jong-un) regime (of North Korea) possesses nuclear, biological and conventional weapons capable of raining destruction down on millions of civilians and tens of thousands of US service members in South Korea, Japan and Guam".

According to Yonhap, which in turn cites KCNA, Kim "has ordered the production of more solid-fuel rocket engines and warhead tips for intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) during his inspection of a chemicals institute".

"He instructed the institute to produce more solid-fuel rocket engines and rocket warhead tips by further expanding engine production process", the statement said.

It has made rapid technological strides under Kim, and released pictures Wednesday of a visit by him to the Chemical Material Institute of the Academy of Defence Science, which develops the North's missiles.

The order to create more solid-fuel rocket engines is significant because the fuel is built into these weapons and they are ready to fire at any moment.

"They will sweat so much in this hot summer weather".

North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of past year, including ICBM tests. "Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!"

President Donald Trump buried in a cemetery full of crosses on the island of Guam, and Vice President Mike Pence burning are just a small sampling of North Korea's continued propaganda war against the USA and its allies.

A series of threats followed from both sides, and while the rhetoric has since eased, the US and South Korea this week kicked off their annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian military drills, which the North always condemns as dress rehearsals for invasion.

"Some people said it was too strong. It's not strong enough", he told thousands of supporters.

During last year's drills, the North successfully test-fired for the first time a submarine-launched ballistic missile ruler Kim Jong Un then praised as the "success of all successes". "I respect that fact very much", he said.

"And maybe, probably not, but maybe something positive can come about".

His comments echoed those of his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who earlier in the day acknowledged Pyongyang's recent "restraint" in not carrying out fresh nuclear or missile tests in response to tough new United Nations sanctions.

The United States and South Korea began an annual military drill Monday.

Kim Jong-un has certainly signaled he's nowhere near finished rattling his saber.

The North sees the massive land, air and sea war games as a provocation, because it believes it is a way for the South to prepare for an invasion.
