I don’t understand why President Trump is allowing this to proceed. I’m hoping there is something significant going on behind the scenes I don’t know about. But I doubt it.
Trump is more likely being played by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, who has gotten from Trump was he needs – time to complete his missile program so that his nukes can reach the United States.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
North Korea is expanding military facilities thought to house long-range missiles that can hit the U.S., according to a think-tank report that revives doubts about the regime’s sincerity in disarmament negotiations.
Pyongyang is still producing nuclear weapons and appears to be upgrading a missile base near the Chinese border, according to the analysis by the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif., based on satellite imagery taken in recent months.
“The missile base at Yeongjeo-dong has long been a concern to U.S. and South Korean officials because of its unique location,” the report said, referring to the border site, which it said is likely to receive the North’s latest weapons.
Seven miles away, North Korea has been building new facilities that appear to be either another missile base or an expansion of the Yeongjeo-dong facility, said the Middlebury analysis, first reported by CNN.
The U.S. Embassy in Seoul declined to comment.
