South Korea announced today that North Korea has placed a cover over their testing site for nuclear bombs. This is a serious turn of events in this ever escalating “cold war” between the United States and North Korea.
This prevents American intelligence from spying on the facility and totally prevents the United States from knowing when a detonation is imminent. Recent threats have Americans on guard as North Korea has said that the United States is their prime target and they can reach the U.S. with their long range missiles.
The United Nations has dealt with this threat by tightening sanctions against North Korea. Their leader Kim Jong-un seems belligerent against the attempts to redirect his actions against the west.
It does appear that yesterday there was much activity at the site. According to the New York Times, “a South Korean general said 'brisk' activity had been spotted at the site.”
They seem to deem their actions as warranted because of the occasional visit to North Korean waters by American nuclear submarines. This is after the 2010 incident that resulted in a South Korean warship being blown up, and the consensus was and still is that North Korea set off a torpedo attack. However, North Korea denies all the allegations against them in this incident.
All modern technology can do is to have earthquake monitoring in place to detect seismic tremors and watch for detonation clues such as increased radiation in the air.
It's a game of cat and mouse at this time. All we can do is pray for the leaders of North Korea and the United States. Pray and wait.
