Experts outside the United States government are using North Korea’s propaganda videos to dissect and decode the rogue regime’s nuclear program. Decoders say that there are clues about the weapons advancement program hidden in their propaganda, and they are sounding the alarm.
A group of analysts at the Middlebury Institute’s Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey, California are closely studying the propaganda photos and videos put out by the North Korean regime. They then apply new tools such as satellite imagery and 3-D mapping to the videos and photos so they can learn more about how the North continues to advance their weapons in the face of sanctions and growing opposition.
The analysists are finding amazingly detailed information about North Korea’s military capabilities and in this video, they walk us through the clues that reveal the capabilities of a North Korean missile. They will also show instances where they’ve found the North Koreans to be faking their weapons success.
The intense voices in North Korea’s videos make them seem legitimate, but the decoders have looked into what they can actually accomplish and what they cannot by simple decoding images used by the regime themselves.
Perhaps the most alarming revelation is that the decoders suggest that it’s likely that North Korea is using highly advanced machines to construct their missile components. This could make getting a powerful nuke more likely than originally thought. They also say that North Korea has a missile that can carry a warhead capable of hitting the mainland United States, “New York, LA.”
But they also point out the failures in the North Korean weapons advancement program and can identify where Kim Jong-Un is in several photos.
