China’s nuclear experts believe North Korea has enough enriched uranium to fill 20 nuclear warheads on what are, for now, untested intercontinental ballistic missiles. The missiles, called KN-08, can travel 5,600 miles within reach of the continental U.S., including California. North Korea could double their number of bombs by next year.
We’ve known for years through US intel that Iran has been financing North Korean missile development in exchange for technology and components.
North Korea has also been exporting nuclear technology to Syria as has Iran, and North Korea has been selling missile components to Iran, Yemen and Egypt.
If North Korea attacks South Korea or Japan, the U.S. is obligated by treaty to defend them as if the U.S. was attacked.
With this Iran deal, we are repeating the 1994 Clinton deal that allowed North Korea nuclear weapon capabilities. That deal didn’t stop North Korea, it provided cover for their nuclear enrichment and missile development.
“We saw how North Korea was able to game this whole process,” U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said in an interview. “I wouldn’t be surprised if Iran had its hands on the same playbook.”
Our former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the former president’s wife, sold out control of more than 20% of the United States’ uranium to Russia, and possibly as much as near 50%. Barack Obama allowed this to happen. They both allowed Vladimir Putin, an evil actor, to corner the uranium market. Russia is allied with Iran, Syria, and Cuba.
Barack Obama has not dealt with North Korea and the Iranian deal is spurring a nuclear arms race.
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has said that once the deal is done, Iran is eager to sell enriched uranium to make some money. Under the deal, Iran can spin centrifuges and continue enriching uranium. They are also developing ICBMs which are not included in the nuclear deal.
