N. Korea seeks ability to simultaneously fire multiple nuclear missiles: CIA chief

January 24, 2018

WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 (Yonhap) — North Korea is pushing to acquire the capability to fire multiple nuclear missiles at the same time, increasing the threat posed to the United States, the head of the Central Intelligence Agency said Tuesday.

Speaking at the American Enterprise Institute, CIA Director Mike Pompeo also said the U.S. mission is to extend that timeline as much as possible.

“Kim Jong-un will not rest with a single successful test,” he said, referring to the North Korean leader. “The logical next step would be to develop an arsenal of weapons that is not one, not a showpiece, not something to drive on a parade route … but rather the capacity to deliver from multiple firings of these missiles simultaneously.”

Pyongyang last year conducted its first tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the mainland U.S. It also detonated its sixth nuclear bomb.

Pompeo has repeatedly said that North Korea is just months away from having the ability to nuke the U.S.

“I want everybody to understand that we are working diligently to make sure that a year from now I can still tell you they are several months away from having that capacity,” he said.

U.S. President Donald Trump wants a diplomatic solution to the North Korea crisis, Pompeo added, but “we are equally, at the same time, ensuring that if we conclude that is not possible, that we present the president with a range of options.”

The CIA chief also noted that Kim appears to seek Korean reunification on his terms, not just protection of his regime, by pursuing the nuclear capability.

    Those things are fake forged in your brains feel similar as realities in real world by ‘computers now controled by evils’. They may cause same feelings, but they do not have same effects.
    If you are in the real world ,you will know how those things are generated. But ,you are in a fake world, you can not understand those.
    The only way to go back to your lives in the real world is having killed social evils and shut down evils-controled ‘computers’.
    The so-called ‘universe’ and ‘earth as a planet’ are fake. Social evil’s intention of doing these criminals is to make people like you do harming criminals each other like evils have done . And rewards of criminals you do are fake things and artifact feelings and a bad fake life.
    Social evils can do these criminals does not mean that they have big talents. On the contrary, the ‘computers’ used by social evils doing these criminals were stolen by social evil from the previous human-being that killed by social evil.
    In the real world, there is only one truth that is the human hierarchy order. However,in fake ‘worlds’, there are a lot of so-called principles and theories, but those principles are generated by ‘evil-controled computers’. And also your fake ‘life ,abilities, every contradiction and conflict ‘ were falsely set and fixed when you were born in fake worlds by social evils used civilization that they had stolen from previous human.
    诛灭祸害世间搞鬼地魔鬼社鬼所谓“天儿”旳所有祖宗后代九族十族永不获生肂地最惨。
    社鬼魔鬼杂种,关掉你搞鬼祸害人们的机器永肂去吧。
    社鬼魔鬼关掉搞鬼地害人“电脑”,带着你魔鬼地所有附佣从幕后死出来和所有人们抽签决定生死存亡。
