North Korea nuclear weapons will be increased if the North Korean regime of Kim Jong-Un has their way.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, North Korea declared a state of war against South Korea last week. North Korea’s official statement also promised nuclear war against the United States.
F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets were sent to South Korea as part of ongoing military exercises with South Korea that occur every year. These F-22 stealth fighters in Korea would join the B-52 bombers and B-2 stealth bombers that were already sent to South Korea. The USS Fitzgerald, a destroyer capable of intercepting missiles, was also originally thought to be deployed up the coast line of North Korea, but it turns out the radar-equipped destroyer USS John S. McCain will be going instead.
The announcement of increasing the North Korea nuclear weapons stockpile coincided with news of the North Korea nuclear reactor being restarted in Yongbyon. Before North Korea shut down its main nuclear processing facility at Yongbyon, it is believed the regime stockpiled enough plutonium to create between four to 10 nuclear weapons.
In February, for the third time North Korea tested an underground nuclear device with an estimated power of between six to seven kilotons, about half the output of the Hiroshima nuclear weapon. Recently, Admiral James Winnefeld, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, leaked out the fact that the Department of Defense believes North Korea has one type of missile capable of reaching the US mainland.
In making the announcement of the North Korea nuclear reactor restarting, the KCNA said the measures would help solve “the acute shortage of electricity,” as well as improving the “quality and quantity” of the country’s nuclear arsenal.
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei spoke out against the idea of North Korea nuclear weapons increasing, saying, “China has consistently advocated denuclearization on the peninsula and maintaining peace and stability in the region.”
What do you think about the Kim Jong-Un regime announcing their plans to increase North Korea’s nuclear weapons stockpile?
