South Korean news agencies are reporting that North Korea is loading long-range nukes to be ready by the Inauguration.
The South Korean Joint Chief of Staff said in a statement on Thursday that the reports of missiles could not be confirmed operational, but that they were monitoring things closely.
South Korean reports say that two missiles are already loaded on temporary firing platforms.
According to the South Korean reports, an unnamed source said that the missiles are being prepped in order to send a “strategic message” to Donald Trump.
While the reports are not completely verified, they are specific about the types of missiles. The devices have been reported as being no more than “15 meters” which would be smaller than their current ICBMs.
This isn’t the first time North Korea has put on a display prior to a new administration taking over. They have been known to test nukes or attempt a missile launch, but this is the first time they have loaded nukes on long-range missiles.
U.S. military has plans to launch a new satellite on Friday and will stream the launch live. The new high-tech satellite will allow the Air Force to monitor missile launches around the globe.
Threats come often from the North Korean government, and they normally amount to nothing more than words.
Do you think that North Korea will actually fire a missile towards the US during the Inauguration?
