Report from Imagery Experts Claims North Korea Preparing for Seventh Nuclear Test

It appears that the Kim regime is ready to nuke Mt. Mantap again:

North Korea appears to be preparing for another nuclear test despite probable aftershocks from its sixth and largest nuclear test, Sept. 3, still occurring, according to American experts on Pyongyang.

In a joint analysis released Monday, Frank Pabian, Joseph Bermudez Jr. and Jack Liu, citing satellite imagery, said there has been a “consistently high level of activity” at North Korea’s main nuclear test site in Punggye-ri.

The analysis was released by 38 North, a U.S. website specializing in North Korea-related issues.

The analysts claimed the suspected activity was detected at the West Portal, leading to an unused tunnel complex, but not the North Portal, where five of the six tests took place.

“Despite the continuation of small tremors near Mt. Mantap since North Korea’s last nuclear test, tunnel work at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site is still underway,” they said. “These efforts continue to be concentrated at the West Portal, leaving the North Portal…mostly dormant and likely abandoned, at least for the time being. At the West Portal, there has been a consistently high level of activity since North Korea’s last nuclear test.”

The activity included the routine presence of vehicles and personnel around the portal, movement of mining carts to an adjacent spoils pile and signs of fresh spoils being dumped there.  [Korea Times]

  1. Well.
    To paraphrase a demotivational poster,
    It could be KJU’s sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

    But you still have to spend a lot of time smiling and pointing at various tree bark biscuit factories and toad breeding facilities…

    …and you have to spend a week every year entertaining Dennis Rodman.

    …so it isn’t all strippers and blow.

    Does he look like he shares his nutrients?
