According to the claims of two high-ranking U.S intelligence experts, North Korea holds the power to kill up to 90% of Americans. Unfortunately, as tensions have continued to escalate between the two nations, if this is true, America may have underestimated their North Korean enemy.
Robert James Woolsey Jr, a former director of the CIA, along with Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, a director of the US Congressional EMP task force, have wrote a joint article stating that North Korea is not to be toyed with.
According to them,
“The mainstream media, and some officials… continue to allege North Korea does not yet have the capability to deliver on its repeated threats to strike the US with nuclear weapons.
“False reassurance is given to the American people that North Korea has not ‘demonstrated’ that it can miniaturize a nuclear warhead small enough for missile delivery, or build a reentry vehicle for an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of penetrating the atmosphere to blast a US city.”
Their article follows shortly after the mainstream media has once again alleged that North Korea wouldn’t be able to deliver on their repeated threats to launch a nuclear missile towards the U.S. In their article, they explained that technology has made it possible for the miniaturization of warheads that would be quite easy for countries that have already developed nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, such as North Korea.
Just last year, Kim Jung had been seen inspecting an alleged nuclear warhead that was small enough to be mounted to ballistic missiles. Furthermore, they state that North Korea has two classes of intercontinental ballistic missiles, including the road-mobile KN-08 and KN-14, both of which are equipped with cutting edge reentry vehicles.
And then, in just the past few days, North Korea has tested a high-powered engine on two occasions, which has made some speculate that they are getting ready to launch. Others allege that North Korea has an H-Bomb, which if paired with a nuke could kill millions if launched towards a big city.
Once hit, the two believe that North Korea could potentially remove the US from the national grid, as they have two satellites moving within the same regions that would be consistent with an attack. They could possibly launch an electromagnetic pulse attack against the US if a nuclear bomb was detonated above the US.
“A single warhead delivered by a North Korean satellite could blackout the entire national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year – killing nine out of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.”
And their claims are not the first to state that North Korea has such weaponry. At a Pentagon press conference in 2015, the former North American Aerospace Defense commander Adm. stated, “I agree with the intelligence community that we assess that they [North Koreans] have the ability, they have the weapons, and they have the ability to miniaturize those weapons, and they have the ability to put them on a rocket that can range the [U.S.] homeland,”
Unfortunately, while the media is obsessing over Donald Trump’s every move, and fabricating stories about Russia, the true threats to the American people are being downplayed. If anything, it would seem reasonable to assess a nation that openly threatens you with nuclear war, rather than to continue to pick fights with nations that hold no interest in attacking the US.
