We always joke about North Korea and their missile capabilities, but did you know that they have a satellite in space and that it is being used to spy on the United States?
North Korea officially launched its first satellite, Kwangmyongsong-3-2 on Dec. 12, 2012, and the Kwangmyongsong-4 on Feb. 7, 2016.
While the North Koreans claim it is being used mainly for weather research, it is pretty obvious that it is also being used to spy on the U.S.
The satellite was originally launched via an Unha-type carrier rocket, the same system that they use to fire their Taepodong-2 long-range ballistic missile.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Officially called “number 41332” by North American Aerospace Defense Command, the Kwangmyongsong-4 travels about 310 miles above the earth’s surface at a speed of 7.6 miles per second, according to N2YO.com, where you can track the satellite in real time.
South Korea, Japan and the United States all raised the alarm at the time of the launch that madman Kim was testing or preparing to test intercontinental ballistic missiles and throw himself into a nuclear weapons programs.
Former President Barack Obama was made aware of the launch at the time, but did very little to try and stop it.
American officials have made it clear that North Korea’s missile technology has been rapidly developing over the years.
“North Korea’s sub launch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious,” an unnamed U.S. official told CNN on Saturday.
The 2016 missile launch was condemned by the United Nations, but Obama himself didn’t seem to care.
Unlike Obama, President Donald Trump remains committed to putting an end to North Korea and their aggressive foreign policy.
