As much as I hate the United Nations, it has helped with some international laws such as the total ban of using any chemical or biological agents on anyone. These laws came about because of some of the poison gases, nerve agents and deadly infectious agents used in past wars such as World Wars I & II.
Most nations adhere to these international laws, but it appears that North Korea is not only shunning the call from most nations of the world to de-escalate their threat of using nuclear weapons, but they seem to be shunning international law banning the use of biological agents.
Recent reports indicate that the rogue nation is testing the ability of their intercontinental missiles of carrying deadly anthrax, a terrible disease that could kill millions of people.
(Fox News) – North Korea is beginning tests on mounting anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles that would strike the U.S., a report said on Wednesday just two days after the White House’s U.S. National Security Strategy stated Kim Jong Un is pursuing chemical and biological weapons.
The Hermit Kingdom is beginning experiments to test out if anthrax can endure immense heat and pressure it will have to endure when loaded into an ICBM and launched toward the earth’s atmosphere, Japan’s Asahi newspaper reported, citing an unidentified person connected to South Korea’s intelligence services.
“North Korea has started experiments such as heat and pressure equipment to prevent anthrax from dying even at a high temperature of over 7,000 degrees generated at the time of ICBM’s re-entry into the atmosphere,” the report stated. “In part, there is unconfirmed information that it has already succeeded in such experiments.” …
If these reports can be verified, then there needs to be an international outcry from every nation including those who continue to support North Korea, as Russia is. Even though the UN has strong sanctions against trade with North Korea Russia continues to supply oil and other vital goods that are helping the nation continue to pursue their deadly arsenal.
