In October, North Korea will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the ruling Workers’ Party in Pyongyang. Led by their leader Kim Jong-un, experts speculate that this day may also bring a ‘message’ to the world: N. Korea can make missiles that may kill millions of people in America. And it may happen weeks before the Election 2020.
A senior White House official told Express UK that N. Korean leader may have been prepping something big for the United States in the coming October, weeks before the Election 2020.
This something big packs a solid-fuelled intercontinental-range ballistic missile (ICBM) that said to be in a ready-to-fire state, as of now.
“As new solid-fueled ICBM, at least initially, won’t be a true game-changer for the US or allied security as North Korea at best will only have a handful of them, and they would not have tested them,” said Kazianis. “However, over the long-term, such a weapon would be able to be fired very quickly as it could be stored in a ready-to-fire state.”
Harry J. Kazianis, Senior Director of Korean Studies at the Center for the National Interest, spoke to the senior White House official that told about the possible missile launch in October.
The official said, “That seems to be the most likely of scenarios based on their history, and it’s what we are expecting, but, of course, we are hoping to be proven wrong.”
Next month, the 75th anniversary of the ruling Workers’ Party will be happening in Pyongyang. This day is also the said date wherein the missiles will be unveiled, according to the expert.
Kazianis wasn’t the only one that thinks this way. NBC News also interviewed Dr. Victor Cha of the Center for Strategic and International Studies “Beyond Parallel” website, and also confirmed this speculation.
“This looks like they are certainly preparing to do an SLBM test for the first time,” said Cha, an NBC News contributor on Asian affairs. “Kim Jong Un has been talking about unveiling a new strategic weapon, and this may be it. There’s been a lot of activity around this one site where the test barge is located.”
The possible public unveiling of N. Korea’s missiles is expected to be the country’s message to other nations of its power over arms and machinery.
Kazianis told Express UK that the U.S. President Donald Trump would not want any issues between the two countries during the Election period, especially, a possible missile launch.
“They don’t want to risk any sort of crisis before the election that will give progressives here in Washington any sort of ammo to attack Trump and say his talks or summit with Kim have failed,” said him.
Not only Trump may face blame on N. Korea once it happened, but he can also face losing millions of American lives.
