North Korean Spy Drone downed after taking THAAD photos

North Korean Spy Drone downed after taking THAAD photos

The South Korean military on Tuesday said a suspected North Korean drone took photographs of a USA missile defense shield before crashing on its way back to the community country.

The South Korean Defense Ministry on Tuesday released this photo, taken Friday, of a suspected North Korean drone.

South Korean officials say anti-drone defense systems that could shield population centers against drone-related biochemical and bomb attacks are only deployed in core areas of Seoul.

Any flare-up in the long-running dispute over "comfort women" could complicate efforts by Seoul, Tokyo and their ally Washington to cope with North Korea, which has been ramping up weapons tests since past year in defiance of global sanctions.

Moon will fly out to the USA on June 28 for a summit itinerary that includes banquet, summit talks, and a joint press conference at the White House from June 29 to 30, said Park Soo-hyun, presidential spokesperson. Two anti-missile installments have already been installed, put in place in the middle of the night on a golf course 135 miles from Seoul despite protests by thousands of South Koreans over THAAD itself and United States militarism on the Korean Peninsula.

Well (somehow) it appears that Brodkin's efforts may come to fruition in the near future, with news breaking today that North Korea is considering joining a bid to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup. They have qualified just twice for the tournament, in 1966 and most recently in 2010. The express goal of Shannon's visit was to discuss the alliance between South Korea and the USA and their shared global priorities, which include "coordinated responses" to the threats posed by North Korea. In 2014, the South Korean Defense Ministry announced that it had recovered four crashed North Korean drones between October 2013 and September of that year. The picture above from 2013 shows leader Kim Jong Un ordering strategic rocket forces to be on standby to strike US and South Korean targets at any time. But the step has been taken in response to North Korea's military provocations.

In written testimony, Mattis said North Korea is increasing the pace and scope of a nuclear weapons program that leader Kim Jong-Un has stated will one day be capable of striking the United States.

Moon, who suggested during his successful campaign for a May 9 election that he could try to renegotiate the deal, also said the two countries should not "cling to past history" only to block other developments in their ties. "The summit will provide a momentum to take the Korea-U.S. relations to the next level", said Park.
