NK Kim Jong Un Chairs Military Meeting Amid Growing Concern Over Nuclear Test
By: Nina Siena - Latin Times News - 06-24-22

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un presided over a military meeting on Wednesday to discuss the country’s military and defense policies amid concerns of an imminent nuclear test. State media Korea Central News Agency reported the Enlarged Meeting of the Eight Central Military Commission (CMC) of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) had Kim stressing the importance of enhancing the frontline unit capabilities of the Korean People’s Army.

This is the second Enlarged Meeting that brings together top military officials, the first of which was last held in June 2021. This year’s meeting has taken much longer compared to last year's which was held for only a day. It would seem that most of the discussions focused on the major agenda items on the table for discussion meant to align with Kim’s 5-year military modernization plan. Speculations of the talks also touched on the possible discussion of North Korea’s seventh nuclear test.

According to Al Jazeera, the meeting did not specify any plans nor did it mention any critical remarks directed at the United States and South Korea. Members could possibly discuss the military’s weapons development and deployment of such weapons systems recently seen with Pyongyang’s missile tests. North Korea so far has run launch tests for its hypersonic missile, a long-range cruise missile and its newest intercontinental ballistic missile.

South Korea’s senior analyst, Cheong Seong- Chang from the Sejong Institute said North Korea’s fast-paced testing activity could be attributed to Kim’s intent of advancing his arsenal powers as a way to pressure the United States and their long-stalled nuclear diplomacy. This seems to clearly demonstrate that Pyongyang will not back down from the power games between Washington and its other western allies.

“Just as Kim conducted a nuclear test on February 13, 2013, after holding his first Enlarged Meeting of the Central Military Commission of the WPK days before the nuclear test, the seventh nuclear test is expected to be taken place soon after this Enlarged Meeting,” Cheong said.

Meanwhile, South Korea successfully launched a satellite into orbit last Tuesday. The satellite was propelled with the use of its first homemade rocket. Experts say Kim may now also order his officials to launch a reconnaissance satellite test in the coming weeks as its countermeasure to South Korea’s latest move.
Personal note: It was just a matter of time before the Little Fat Man made the news.
He's Nuke nuts - can't wait to fire them off. Will he back Putin or Mau if war breaks
out or will they back him if needed? Pretty soon you may be able to buy your very
own nuke the way things are going. What's life without a nuke in your garage?
(By the way seems like no license needed purchase one of these) -

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
