Report raises alarm on north korea military might
The U.S. military was reportedly told to prepare to respond by a surprise invasion force from North Korea as recently as 2012, the U.S. government’s top watchdog said Thursday.
The warning comes after the report, “Unprecedented and Unprecedented U.S. Military Assistance to North Korea,” was released by the Congressional R부천안마esearch Service.
“We think that the threat of an imminent North Korean nuclear attack has been exaggerated,” said Mike Rogers, the director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
“The number one concern is that North Korea has the capabilities that would allow them to mount a significant first-strike campaign. As always, we are confident in the intelligence that we gather,” he said.
The report warns that even if they had those capabilities, Washington must ensure that Washington’s allies are prepared.
“[W]hat that includes has a significant impa카지노커뮤니티ct on whether they can protect themselves against a first-strike attack,” Rogers said.
It says that the Korean Peninsula was on an intelligence and security alert since 2011, but this may have been due to North Korea’s ability to develop nuclear weapons.
The report claims that the U.S. government is providing North Korea at least $5 billion in aid since 2012, while it also claims Pyongyang has the technological capability to make nuclear weapons.
The report says that despite U.S. and South Korean military claims that the North’s nuclear and missile capabilit포커ies pose an immediate threat to Seoul, the country still possesses a formidable conventional military.
It said North Korea already has a well-planned and intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and a mobile ICBM launch site capable of striking the U.S.
