North Korea ramps up nuclear capabilities, new satellite images show

With President Joe Biden turning out to be one of the weakest, most ineffective — and downright embarrassing — presidents in United States history, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some of America’s top adversaries are inching closer to testing Biden on a global stage.

According to the Washington Examiner, the latest prime example of that is happening right now in North Korea, as new satellite images appear to show the rogue nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, ramping up its nuclear capabilities, right under our noses.

The Examiner noted: “The images indicate construction has restarted on a second reactor at the Yongbyon nuclear complex that could be used to develop material for a weapon.”

Notably, the new imagery comes as South Korea has warned in recent days that its neighbor to the north is inching closer to conducting a nuclear missile test, which comes at a precarious time as the world is still on edge over Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine, which has reached its third month of bloody conflict.

Though North Korea agreed to suspend work on the second reactor, which is about 10 times the size of its other reactor, new images show equipment being moved, new pipe being laid and vehicles moving all around the area.

Of course, nuclear reactors are primarily for producing nuclear power, but they can also be used to produce the type of plutonium needed for nuclear weapons.

As President Biden continues to falter on the world stage, North Korea will undoubtedly grow bolder in its actions, possibly including a nuclear missile test in the near future. So far, this year, Kim Jong Un has ordered 16 missile tests.
