North Korea’s state media released photos Wednesday that appear to show the designs of one or possibly two new missiles.

Concept diagrams of the missiles were seen hanging on a wall near leader Kim Jong-un while he visited a plant that makes solid-fuel engines for the country’s ballistic-missile program.

One of the photos clearly showed a diagram for a missile called a Pukguksong-3 which appears to be the latest in its Pukguksong, or Polaris, series. The other was harder to discern, though it carried a “Hwasonga” or Mars, designation name, Fox News reported.

The photos were carried in the morning edition of the Rodong Sinmun, the ruling party’s newspaper, and released by the Korean Central News Agency just two days after the United States and South Korea began annual military exercises that the North claims are a rehearsal for war.

Tensions on the peninsula generally ratchet up during the maneuvers and a series of larger exercises held each spring.

The KCNA report on the visit said Kim called on workers at the plant to produce more solid-fuel rocket engines and rocket warhead tips.

Michael Duitsman, a research associate at the Centre for Non-Proliferation Studies, said the first missile has not been seen before.

The Pukguksong-3 is definitely new he said.

The missile might be designed to fly farther and to be launched from protective canisters, which allow missiles to be transported more easily and makes them more difficult to locate and destroy in advance. Solid-fuel engines add to that difficulty because they allow for quicker launches than liquid-fuel missiles. It could possibly also boost the North’s submarine-launched missile capabilities.

North Korea successfully tested the submarine-launched Pukguksong-1 in August last year.

Kim Jong In instructed the institute to produce more solid-fuel rocket engines and rocket warhead tips by further expanding engine production process and the production capacity of rocket warhead tips and engine jets by carbon and carbon compound material.

North Korea is advancing their ICBM technology as well as fuel systems, as they strive towards a North Korea that will strike the U.S. mainland with nukes.

Most U.S. citizens believe North Korea does not pose a threat to our nation, they laugh it off or claim North Korea will be a parking lot.

Reality is, North Korea is a formidable threat and as they continue their chemical and bio weapon systems, their ICBM’s and nuclear warheads, just remember they have promised to launch all they have at us.

We should never live in fear nor intimidation, just as we should never live in ignorance and denial.  The United States has a vast list of enemies and North Korea is at the top of it.

Never forget, it was just a few months ago that the government and mainstream media said North Korea was years away from ICBM’s and nuke warheads.  Now they admit North Korea already has ICBM’s armed with nuke warheads that are capable of striking any U.S. city.

God Bless.
