Nuclear warheads, cyber technology, and biological weapons are not something you want in the hands of a madman. A shocking new report reveals that North Korea dictator, Kim Jong-Un, may possess all three. Even worse, he may be preparing to unleash a plethora of deadly viruses on U.S. troops.
Significantly, the Belfer Centre of Harvard University’s Kennedy School is releasing a report suggesting North Korea is producing biological weapons. Under cover of a remote farm lab, officials warn that chemists are weaponizing some of the world’s deadliest diseases. Some of the viruses they possibly possess are Smallpox, Anthrax, and Cholera.
Moreover, the report notes that the Northern Peninsula has several industrial facilities to mass produce the biological threats. Missile, drones, planes, and sprayers could help to spread the highly infectious diseases. Additionally, North Korea’s 200,000 special forces could also unleash the bio-weapons. These types of weapons are also very hard to track.
“While nuclear programs can be monitored by the number of nuclear tests and the success of missile tests, weaponizing and cultivating pathogens can stay invisible behind closed doors,” says the report. Equipment used for BW production are often dual-use for agriculture, making external monitoring and verification virtually impossible.”
Interestingly, this news comes on the heels of an attempted cyber-attack by North Korea. Hackers sent spearfishing emails targeting major U.S. electricity providers. While their efforts were unsuccessful, security experts at FireEye warn that future attacks by the regime are likely imminent.
Consequently, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is cautioning about Kim’s use of chemical weapons. In April, citing the deadly chemical attack in Syria, he says he fears the North will launch missiles with Sarin-gas tips. “Innocent citizens, including babies and children, fell victim in Syria,” warns Abe.
A Dangerous Man
Nevertheless, given the fact that North Korea’s nuclear program is developing at an alarming rate, this report is not good news. If Kim does possess the ability to launch chemical, biological, and cyber-attacks, then he is the most dangerous man in the world. A fact that, while befuddling to Democrats, is painfully apparent to President Trump.
A few months ago, the president gave notice to Pyongyang that any aggressive action toward America and her allies would be met with “fire and fury.” Also, military officials are preparing to put B-52 nuclear bombers on 24-hour alert status at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.
