- UN Envoy Says North Korea Is Only “Months Away” From Striking US
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
A few weeks ago, we highlighted an interview given by CIA Director Mike Pompeo to “CBS This Morning” where he claimed that North Korea was “only a handful of months” from realizing the long-term goal of its nuclear weapons program: Developing a missile that could deliver a nuclear payload to the Continent US with a high degree of accuracy.
At the time, we cautioned that these remarks should be taken with a grain of salt, because Pompeo had repeated this same claim in the past.
But today, the issue was raised again, when US disarmament ambassador Robert Wood told a UN-sponsored disarmament forum that, by all reasonable intelligence accounts, the rogue state is mere months away from building an ICBM capable of striking anywhere within the Continental US.
