Activation of the DPRK nuclear test site

20
According to the news agency "Vesti"it is quite possible that North Korea is preparing to conduct a new nuclear test weapons. American experts have published a report from which it follows that suspicious activity was registered at the Punheri nuclear test site.


This assumption is based on satellite imagery. In particular, in one of the photographs one can notice some materials at two exits from the underground tunnels. And in the latest timed image, dated 19 April, the territory of the landfill leaves a large truck.

"Based on the available information, it can be assumed that the activity in Punheri is caused by the early stages of preparation for the test, or Pyongyang has less dangerous designs," the report says.

It is worth noting that the US administration has repeatedly called on Pyongyang to refrain from provocative actions on the territory of the Korean Peninsula. According to the official representative of the State Department, Jen Psaki, they continue to monitor the situation.

Information that the DPRK plans to conduct a nuclear test of a "new type" appeared in late March. Recall that three nuclear tests have already been conducted in the 2006, 2009 and 2013 years. In the first two plutonium charges were used, the type of the last device remained unknown, although experts from South Korea believe that it could be a uranium charge.

      Maybe all the fuss because of this:

      Putin: Russia is ready to build a gas pipeline to South Korea

      http://www.gazeta.ru/business/2014/02/19/5915697.shtml

      Russia may begin to supply gas to South Korea via a gas pipeline through China. Industry experts remind that this project has already been discussed and then all participants expressed distrust of the PRC, waiting for the repetition of the Russian-Ukrainian situation. Meanwhile, deliveries by pipe can reliably bind South Korea to Russia, and in this light all risks are justified, political analysts say.

      In addition, previously considered the option of laying the pipe over land through the territory of the DPRK, but Gazprom refused it because of political risks.

    North Korea wanted to spit on the warnings of mattresses, nor well done. Only the presence of nuclear weapons in the DPRK protects them from the solemn democratic bombing and democratic invasion of the Yankees on their territory.

      Well, in fact, if the Koreans have nuclear weapons, if there is one, then it is very primitive and in a small amount. The thing is different. In North Korea, the army itself is considered one of the most powerful in the world. The number of about a million people, a huge amount of armored vehicles, heavy artillery, very high air defense density, the highest number of special forces in the world. If desired, they will raze the nearby Seoul in a matter of hours, and hardly the valiant Americans will have time to do something in response. Even though the equipment in the DPRK is largely outdated by today's standards, it is in working condition, and the army conducts frequent exercises, plus the morale of the soldiers and motivation mean a lot. This is not the Ukrainian army ...

    And how can one explain to others that a nuclear dawning will not help them ensure their own security? This North Correi is constantly threatened, then bombed, then destroyed. There is no country threatened more, or at least as much. And she continues to exist and is not going to refuse something. yes

    This is their insurance policy. Without it, they would have been bombed long ago by the "democratic forces" and there would have been another US military foothold near our borders. So far, the DPRK is a kind of buffer between the American bases in South Korea and Vladivostok.

      I would be much more worried about the presence, and official, of nuclear weapons in unstable Pakistan, under whose leadership the chair is swaying actively. It is very likely that the Taliban-Islamists will seize power in the country. At the same time, Pakistan has real nuclear weapons, with delivery vehicles that easily reach the hated India or Israel, rather than a few dirty bombs like the DPRK.

    Well, the Americans, in their spirit, need to get into wherever possible and impossible. It is their territory that they want to do and do, it will probably never reach them.

    The feelings are twofold, on the one hand the only way to guarantee the sovereignty of the DPRK, but on the other hand, a chill runs through ...

    A test of a new type? Perhaps the Koreans assembled a fusion device.

    If the USSR had not managed to deliver the technology of manufacturing nuclear weapons to the sons of the great helmsman in time, there would have been fun guys from the states. The states, at the soviets, stole the idea of ​​mopping up after they liquidated themselves in Vietnam and spoiled them in Afghanistan.

      The USSR did not supply North Korea. We considered the Kimov regime unpredictable, and so the military assistance of the DPRK was greatly limited. DPRK acquired nuclear technology from Pakistan, or rather, from one of the Pakistani nuclear escapes in the 1990s. Iran bought these technologies from him.

    And it doesn't matter: did they really invent something new, or not? In light of recent events, Korea would be useful in the CSTO. (Like Iran). For the United States, NATO, it is acceptable to "perform military feats" leaning all against one, yes - preferably - weaker.
