China began building artificial islands off their coast and are now using them as military bases. North Korea seems to have done the same. Aerial photos have indicated that a series of artificial islands have built off the coast of North Korea in the vicinity of their satellite launching station. Some military experts surmise that the artificial islands could be used as sites to launch ballistic missiles from.
North Korea is at it again. Or rather, it is continuing what it started five years ago.
Artificial islands have been discovered surrounding Sohae Satellite Launching Station, a missile development and testing site roughly 70 miles northwest of Pyongyang. Satellite images suggest the islands are home to military installations and have been under development for at least five years.
While their purpose is unknown, suspicions are high that the islands could be used to launch missiles. Those speculations are not far off the mark, according to Gordon Chang, author of “Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes on the World.”
The artificial islands may not be that far off the coast, but any additional distance puts them that much closer to their enemies and US allies. You can be sure that US military intelligence will be closely monitoring activity on the artificial islands. It’s just another act of aggression of an out of control regime run by a maniacal leader who has yet to grow out of adolescence.
