Wednesday, with North Korea’s successful long range rocket launch, Kim Jong Un defied United Nation’s sanctions concerning missile tests and thumbed his nose at the international community.
Make no mistake, Kim Jong Un is a “chip off the old block” from his father, the late Kim Jong Il and his grandfather and founder of the North Korean regime, Kim Il Sung.
As the Federation of American Scientists first pointed out years ago, Iran has been in bed with North Korea since the early 1980s and has helped fund North Korea’s missile development. The Unha is an expendable carrier rocket, which uses the same delivery system as the Taepodong-2 long range ballistic missile. The Taepodong-2 is the ballistic missile which has been the subject of North Korea’s various unsuccessful missile launches over the past decade.
