What a shitty fucking morning it has been thus far. First, we learn that Nutella might give you cancer and now there are reports that North Korea has enough material to make 10 nuclear weapons.
According to Seoul’s 2016 Defense White Paper, which was released on Wednesday, Pyongyang’s plutonium cache has jumped from 40 to 50 kg over the past two years. The new nuclear material is thought to originate from the reprocessing of its spent fuel rods. The material is weapons-grade plutonium.
An unnamed Defense Ministry official told the Korea Times that Kim Jong Un has his regime are developing both intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles. This comes only days after Kim Jong Un made a televised New Year speech where he said, “We are in the final stages of test-launching the intercontinental ballistic missile.”
The Pentagon sharply condemned North Korea’s claims and warned Pyongyang that any “provocative actions” would have “consequences.”
This comes with seven days and 14 hours until President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. Trump commented on Kim Jong Un last February, “I would get China to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly.”
If that news alone wasn’t terrifying enough, Iran is about to receive nearly 130 tons of natural uranium as part of the nuclear pact. Uranium can be enriched to levels ranging from medical and research purposes to the core of an atomic bomb.
Have a great day!
