North Korea’s frequent missile testing shows the true intent of the country’s supreme leader Kim Jong-Un, the head of Northern Command said Wednesday.


“Even in my very short time in NORTHCOM and my very short time of watching what he’s doing, the amount of things that he’s increased in his capability and capacity has been amazing.  We look at the fact that he’s tested 30 percent more than his father and grandfather combined.  We should worry — and I know we are — but I watch what his capability is and obviously he’s working very hard and I know he’s going to work very hard on his capacity — but we can see a ton of intent.” ~Gen. Lori Robinson

Robinson — the first female officer to command a major U.S. COCOM and to head North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) — said the most impressive feats are his speed and the fact that Un “is not afraid to fail in public,” DoD Buzz reports.

North Korea seems to be brought about by a combination of old Soviet influences and present Russian meddling in the Ukraine all coming home to roost. If you’ve been wondering why North Korea suddenly had such swift success in getting a long-range missile put together after years of setbacks, you probably have the Ukraine to thank, as well as black market assistance from a few sources in Russia.


The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches. After those failures, the North changed designs and suppliers in the past two years, according to a new study by Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.


Such a degree of aid to North Korea from afar would be notable because President Trump has singled out only China as the North’s main source of economic and technological support. He has never blamed Ukraine or Russia, though his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, made an oblique reference to both China and Russia as the nation’s “principal economic enablers” after the North’s most recent ICBM launch last month.

Analysts who studied photographs of the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, inspecting the new rocket motors concluded that they derive from designs that once powered the Soviet Union’s missile fleet. The engines were so powerful that a single missile could hurl 10 thermonuclear warheads between continents.

Those engines were linked to only a few former Soviet sites. Government investigators and experts have focused their inquiries on a missile factory in Dnipro, Ukraine, on the edge of the territory where Russia is fighting a low-level war to break off part of Ukraine. During the Cold War, the factory made the deadliest missiles in the Soviet arsenal, including the giant SS-18. It remained one of Russia’s primary producers of missiles even after Ukraine gained independence.

“It’s likely that these engines came from Ukraine — probably illicitly,” Mr. Elleman said in an interview. “The big question is how many they have and whether the Ukrainians are helping them now. I’m very worried.”
