North Korea unlikely to have ICBM technology, South intel says as Kim celebrates launch

North Korea does not appear to have the technology to build intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) or have testing facilities for them, South Korean intelligence services said, referring to a recent long-range missile test Pyongyang claimed was successful.

“Although North Korea claimed that [the missile’s] heat resistance was verified, whether it re-entered [the atmosphere safely] was not confirmed and the country has no relevant test facility, making it look like it has not secured the technology,” South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) said in a report to the parliamentary intelligence committee, as cited by Yonhap news agency.

The NIS has not been able to confirm that the Hwasong-14 missile test was successful, Yi Wan-young, a member of the South Korean parliament’s intelligence committee, said, as cited by Reuters.

“Considering how North Korea does not have any testing facilities [for re-entry technology], the agency believes [North Korea] has not yet secured that technology,” he said.

The intelligence agency believes that the missile was a modified version of an intermediate-range missile that North Korea tested in May, Yi added.

On Tuesday North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un joined a pop music concert devoted to the ICBM test launch.
‘Song of Hwasong Rocket’ and ‘Make Others Envy Us’ were performed at the celebrations, Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency reported, as cited by AP.

Earlier in July, North Korea test-launched a Hwasong-14 missile which it said flew 933km in 39 minutes, reaching an altitude of 2,802km.

However, the Russian Ministry of Defense assessed it was an intermediate-range missile (IRBM), saying it flew some 535km and reached an altitude of 510km.

The North Korean missile test was carried out despite a ban by the UN Security Council and once again caused serious concern among the international community.
Pyongyang has been under UN sanctions since 2006, when the Security Council demanded that it cease nuclear testing and banned the provision of large-scale arms, nuclear technology and related training to Pyongyang. North Korea, however, has continued its research and development in the nuclear area.

Pyongyang claimed to have successfully tested Pukguksong-2 Hwasong-12 IRBMs in May.

The US also said it had tested an ICBM interceptor missile of its own in May. A Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) interceptor was fired from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, while the target vehicle, designed to resemble an ICBM, took off from Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The intercept took place above the Pacific Ocean, the US Missile Defense Agency said.

CNN SILENT ON CLAIMS IT HIRED ‘AL-QAEDA CORRESPONDENT’

Left-wing website exposes news network for paying correspondent to pal around with terrorists

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com – JULY 10, 2017

CNN is refusing to respond to claims that it hired a correspondent who worked and sympathized with Al-Qaeda jihadists in Syria.

Left-wing website Alternet documents how, “Star CNN correspondent Clarissa Ward worked with al-Qaeda “media man” Bilal Abdul Kareem to gain access to her “heroes on the ground.”

While doing coverage for CNN’s Undercover in Syria show, Ward visited the Al-Nusra held areas of eastern Aleppo and Idlib and conformed with the local sharia dress code by wearing a full black niqab.

Jabhat al-Nusra is an Al-Qaeda offshoot that is officially listed as a terrorist organization by the United States government.

The article also details how CNN deliberately tried to downplay Bilal Abdul Kareem’s role in providing full access to Ward, presumably to obfuscate the fact that he is a mouthpiece for terrorists.

A 30 second video clip shows Ward describing “Islamist factions” as the “heroes on the ground” in Syria, despite admitting that they are “carrying out atrocities”.

This is the closest you can get to a CNN correspondent actually expressing support for terrorists.

When Alternet contacted CNN to request information on Abdul Kareem’s relationship with the network, and whether his “well-documented relationship with al-Qaeda compromised the reporting it carried out in Syria,” CNN failed to respond.

Something to hide?

Maybe the “CNN is ISIS” meme isn’t just a facetious slur after all.

‘Entire Internet against CNN right now’: Reddit moderator on #CNNBlackmail scandal

CNN informally declared war on the Internet and the whole World Wide Web turned against it, the head moderator of /r/The_Donald subreddit, where the clip that triggered the #CNNBlackmail scandal was originally posted, told RT in an exclusive interview.

No one should be surprised by the fact that “CNN is suppressing a private citizen’s right of free speech,” he said. The man is a moderator of “The_Donald” Subreddit, where the viral clip, showing US President Donald Trump wrestling a man with the CNN logo for a head, was originally posted and then deleted by its creator. The scandal started after the news network tracked down the alleged meme maker and threatened to disclose his identity if they post such “offensive” content again.

The moderator believes that such actions against freedom of speech cannot end up without consequences.

“CNN has all of the Internet against them right now, and when organizations attack freedom of speech, it never ends up well for them,” he told RT.

“This is an attack on the Internet and CNN has informally declared war upon it. In return we need to hit CNN where it hurts, and tell the advertise companies… that you do not approve of them by running ads at the network or endorsing CNN by running adds.”

While CNN says it respects the privacy of the man behind the viral meme, the network said that it “reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change,” which is understood as “complete threat,” ‘PrinceCamelton’ said in the interview. This message was received by the whole community, the moderator said, referring to the threat.

CNN has no right to make “blanket threats… telling you to stop doing what you want to do on the Internet” the moderator stated, adding that people should “stick to their guns and do what they think is right.”

The moderator also said that he would be frightened if he were the Reddit user who posted the clip.

CNN’s move has triggered outrage among the Internet users, resulting in many more mocking memes and videos.

“There are hundreds of other gifs just like that, there are subreddits that are dedicated just to making CNN gifs now,” /r/The_Donald moderator said.

“What CNN did was unfortunate for them,” US President Donald Trump said, referring to the scandal during his visit to Poland on Thursday.

“I think that CNN has really taken it [the viral clip] too seriously, and I think they have hurt themselves very badly,” he stated, adding that the network has been “fake news for a long time.”

*(FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE) – SWEDEN: MIGRANTS VICIOUSLY BEAT DISABLED MAN WHILE CALLING HIM RACIST

“I am a Muslim, f**k Swedes!”

| Infowars.com – JUNE 22, 2017

Three Arab migrants viciously beat a disabled man in Sweden while lecturing him that he was a racist in another sterling example of how the Scandinavian country is enjoying its cultural enrichment.

The three “refugees” attempted to steal a homeless man’s wallet in the Gävle train station during the incident, which took place last month.

Another man on crutches as a result of suffering brain damage from an accident then tried to come to the aid of the homeless man, but the migrants turned their sights on him.

The handicapped man was kicked and punched, receiving a vicious uppercut as one of the migrants lectured him about the “war on Muslims” and how all Swedes were “racist”.

“I am a Muslim, f**k Swedes,” the migrant roared as he carried out the beating.

After the assault, the migrants then humiliated and harassed a 17-year-old boy while trying to steal his cellphone and watch.

One of the culprits, a 32-year-old Moroccan, was refused asylum in 2010 but was later granted permanent residence after marrying a Swedish woman. Prosecutors wanted to deport another of the assailants, a 45-year-old French citizen, but the district court ruled there was “no sufficient grounds for expulsion”.

The third migrant, an Algerian, received the longest sentence, 1 year and 4 months in jail. The other two will be free and walking the streets again in less than a year’s time.

Maybe the migrants had been watching one of Sweden’s top journalists, who recently said that Swedes shouldn’t celebrate their own national holiday because to do so would be racist.

Sweden’s rabid multiculturalism has led to entire areas of major cities becoming no-go zone Islamic ghettos where non-Muslims are attacked.

A new study recently found that 90% of shootings in Sweden are committed by migrants.

Earlier this year, veteran Swedish police officer Peter Springare blew the whistle on how in almost every violent crime he dealt with, the perpetrator had an Islamic name.

In a related story, the migrant who live streamed the gang rape of a Swedish woman on Facebook has been arrested again after attacking someone with a knife having spent just 3 months in jail.

Sweden has allowed in hundreds of thousands of new migrants over the last two years and strongly favors them over its own population.

Earlier this month, we reported on the government’s announcement that a clinic in Stockholm will no longer treat female rape victims and the money will be spent on treating ‘traumatized’ Muslim migrants instead.

Swedish women are also proving their tolerance by having sex with “refugee children” who are actually grown adult men, according to a new report.
