Source of North Korea ICBM? Putin’s Bitch’s Master

One of the questions about North Korea’s missile program is how exactly did the improve from basically short range missiles capable of reaching Japan, to true ICBMs capable of reaching the East Coast of the US in a little more than a year?

Turns out the answer to that question isn’t aid from China. It is Missile Technology given to the North Koreans by the Chumph’s butt-buddy, Putin.

Putin has transferred SS-18/19 capability to the North Koreans. More than likely, the Russians have also given the North Koreans the miniaturized W-31 Warhead capability, first  stolen from the US during the Reagan Administration. Below is a graphic of potential North Korean Nuclear targets captured by the Washington Post..

If the Chumph wasn’t so busy sucking Putn’s man parts, he would have the courage to cut off the NK Missile pipeline.

NORTH KOREA’S NEW MISSILES CAME FROM UKRAINE AND RUSSIA, REPORT CLAIMS

The speed at which North Korea has ramped up its missile and nuclear defense programs within the last two years is reportedly due to purchases Kim Jong Un’s regime has made on a weapons black market linked to the Ukraine and Russia as the United States and the globe frets over a potential military conflict.

A new report released Monday by the International Institute for Strategic Studiesexplained the North has made “astounding strides” in missile development and explained it could not have done so without a high-performance liquid-propellant engine, or LPE, provided by a “foreign source.”

“Claims that the LPE is a North Korean product would be more believable if the country’s experts had in the recent past developed and tested a series of smaller, less powerful engines, but there are no reports of such activities,” the report, penned by missile expert Michael Elleman, read.

Citing available evidence, which can be sparse due to the secretive ways of the North and its isolation from the rest of the world, the report states that North Korea’s ability to jump from short- and medium-range missiles and a flawed type of intermediate-range missile to a more advanced and successful intermediate Hwasong-12 and an intercontinental ballistic missile, called Hwasong-14, could only have occurred with an LPE related to the Soviet RD-250 engines.

Stating that it was “less likely” that Russian engineers could have directly worked on the North’s missiles, the conclusion is drawn that the Soviet Rd-250 missiles and the requisite experience with that class of missile stemmed from factories either from the top Russian rocket engine manufacturer Energomash or the Ukraine’s KB Yuzhnoye.

“One has to conclude that the modified engines were made in those factories,” the report read.

The latter company has a factory based in Dnipro, Ukraine, located inside a part of the country attempting to break away and join Russia amidst a military conflict, and U.S. intelligence agencies believe the Soviet rockets at use by the North were likely made there as the state-owned factory has struggled, The New York Times reported.

Also, back in 2011, North Koreans were caught attempting to steal missile secrets from the factory and that the North may have tried to infiltrate the factory another time.

The rocket engines also are believed to be the very ones the North used to test two missiles last month, which has led to more threats from Kim and calls for diplomacy by China—the North’s sole ally—and even threats from U.S. President Donald Trump.

Cholera Strain in Haiti Confirmed To Come From SE Asia

This supports the accusations by Haitians that the cholera affecting the country came from United Nations troops stationed there. There is evidence that the UN Troops, or the contractors hired to handle their waste have been dumping it in unsafe locations – in the case of the initial outbreak, adjacent to the Arbonite River. It is also possible that one of the AID workers from that region is the source of the disease – but, in order for it to have infected the general population requires some connection between waste handling and human contact.

The dirty secret is that there is little love lost between Haitians and the United Nations Troops, so it isn’t surprising the UN Troops would be the first to get the blame.

The question now is, how is the disease spreading throughout the country so fast? There isn’t a significant amount of mobility by Haitians who live in the camps. Travel in Haiti is difficult, sometimes taking 4 or more hours to cover just a few miles. Cholera has infected at least 100,000 people in Haiti over the past seven weeks and killed more than 2,100. But that’s only a fraction of what health officials predict in coming months. It has shown up in isolated rural border areas between Haiti and the Dominican Republic suggesting that it has already spread to the Dominican Republic…

Sans some human vector, possibly intentional. possibly malfeasance – it is hard to see how the disease is spreading so rapidly all over the country.

Study Finds Haitian Cholera Strain Resembles One From South Asia, Carries Mutation That Increases Severity

Was carelessness responsible for killing babies in Haiti?

“Detailed genetic tests confirm that the cholera strain that has killed more than 2,000 people in Haiti came from South Asia and most closely resembles a strain circulating in Bangladesh,” according to a study published Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), Reuters reports (12/9).

According to the research, “the South Asian cholera bacteria strain was probably introduced into Haiti by an infected human, contaminated food or another item brought to the island country after January’s devastating earthquake,” the Canadian Press/CTV News writes.

“Our evidence is extremely strong, based on the full genome sequence of two Haitian isolates as well as isolates from Latin America and South Asia,” said Matthew Waldor, the study’s lead researcher and an infectious disease specialist at Harvard Medical School. “There is almost sequence identity between the Haitian isolate and the isolate we sequenced from South Asia,” he said. “This is distinct from Latin America, and together those data suggest that this strain then didn’t wash up from the shores of Central or South America onto the shores of Haiti through some environmental event, but instead was transported most likely by a human from a South Asian nation to Haiti,” Waldor noted (12/9)…

They also found that this strain of Vibrio cholera produces a toxin that’s genetically identical to the toxin produced by an especially lethal strain of cholera that popped up in India four or five years ago.

That explains why the Haitian bug can kill so fast, says Dr. Matthew Waldor of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, who led the research.
