Washington Post: US intelligence learned about the development of 10 biological weapons in the DPRK years ago

36
More than 10 years ago, American intelligence presented to Congress a report on the secret development of biological weapons in the DPRK, transmits RIA News message of the Washington Post.




According to the newspaper, "the report was submitted five months before the first nuclear test of the DPRK in 2006." According to the document, a group of scientists was then assembled in Pyongyang, “but they supposedly lacked technical skills.”

“At present, Pyongyang’s resources include a vestigial biotechnological infrastructure,” the report said.

Today, American and Asian intelligence believe that "North Korea is steadily moving to acquire the necessary mechanisms that can potentially be used for advanced biological weapons programs, from factories that can produce microbes to laboratories specializing in genetic modification," the article says.

In addition, the leadership of the republic "sends its scientists abroad to obtain a degree in microbiology."

Why did they receive materials and develop science, but have not yet created weapons?
One of the newspaper’s sources in the American administration wonders.

If it starts tomorrow, we may not know. This is if we are unlucky and we will not have an informant who will be in the right place,
said the source.

The publication reminds that in recent years, the DPRK is engaged in the development of intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads to equip them, referring to the threat from the United States. The UN sanctions, which are increasing each time, have so far failed to achieve the cessation of Pyongyang’s nuclear missile activities.

          The most nasty bacilli are just at the UN and are sitting. Many at harvards and other spruces are bred.

            And this statement is not as safe as it seems. The next stage - the Western media will daily cry out about the cannibal Eun (as it was with Saddam) and the UN, nevertheless, will nod to the states for "good." Lord, how predictable the Americans are. Actually, the situation as a whole turns out to be interesting: yesterday all the tricked-out media together raised a howl on Ukrainian subjects, today - on Korean, tomorrow - on Syrian, a sort of swing by vectors. Why do you think this is done?

              "... the UN, nevertheless, will nod to the states for" good "
              It reminds me of something. Korea, 1950th, no? Do the states want to get in the face again or take revenge (since the USSR is not, and China alone will not "fit" for Eun)?

        Yes, it seems that chemical weapons are no longer “sticking” anyone, even the Americans themselves. I present a picture at the UN when rat Haley will pound a sick rat on the table laughing

Six months ago, Russia was still number one enemy and the striped intelligence was busy looking for a Russian trace in the elections, and now Eun slipped a large nuclear bolt under his nose, we became enemy number two .. offensive .. and here not the first crying

    so if it's true and the DPRK has a biol. weapons, it’s more interesting than a nuclear one, and a conflict may just not exist.

      Tank. and chem. weapons are not the main strike weapon in a great war. Nuclear will be abrupt here, however.
