Photos show North Korea likely testing more rocket engines

By Jamie Crawford

North Korea more than likely tested a long-range rocket engine late last month, according to analysis of new satellite imagery over the site.

In the photos released by 38 North, a blog run by the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, indicators of a probable test are seen through the presence of a probable rocket stage, propellant tanks, as well as the appearance of burned vegetation around the launch stand.

The photos were taken between August 25 and 30.

"These are not in and of themselves indicators that there is going to be a rocket test six months from now," Joel Wit, a former North Korea specialist at the State Department who is now with 38 North, told CNN about the photos.

It is not clear from the photos, Wit said, whether the test was for the second stage of the Unha-3 rocket, which North Korea used in a successful launch test last December, or whether it was a test for a stage of another larger rocket.

The Sohae launch facility, where the latest photos were taken, is the same facility from which North Korea has conducted previous rocket launches, including last December's test.

In recent months, similar satellite imagery has shown what look to be other instances of rocket-engine tests by North Korea, as well as the resumption of production at a previously closed plutonium production site.

North Korea faces a very long list of sanctions for its past provocative behavior that runs from missile launch tests to nuclear tests. Bellicose rhetoric from the regime of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un earlier this year reached a point where the United States military posture in the Asia Pacific region was adjusted in case hostilities broke out on the divided Korean peninsula.

Those tensions have seemingly simmered in recent months, and a joint industrial park operated by both the North and South recently reopened after the North shuttered it earlier this year.

But analysts like Wit who follow developments in the North say the latest satellite photos show the country is not likely to change it's approach to missile development any time soon.

"These kinds of activities are continuing despite whatever outward posture they have, and people will have to get realistic about it," he said.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    What's up?

    I found this article very interesting...please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these "agents" are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    "He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name...

    You also may have heard of the legendary number "666" that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven't seen before, and I don't think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    ...Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    Article: https://biblewoke.com/rfid-mark-of-the-beast-666-revealed

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    "Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, 'If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'" (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith...

    "In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned - by people who don't know me - or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing," – Barack Obama

    ...but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what's in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface...

    "And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'" (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk')

    Barak 'O'bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the "heights" of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw')

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama's home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found...repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God...God bless!

        Joe......I'm a little confused. If the Chinese kicked our asses, then why isn't it just the DPRK? The ROK still exists, right? Compare casualties between the two countries and it does not support your 'asses kicked' theory. The Chinese had no regards for their infantry and just used human waves to try and push the UN forces back. (Please notice that I pointed out UN and not US)

        The US just sent up it's first spy satellite that can take pictures of the world with a high tech camera that is supposed to be able to read a car's license plate. And since that is information that the government told us, that means it can do much more. It can probable take pictures with a resolution good enough to be able to read the words of a novel you are reading in your backyard.

    If I was an ultra rich guy, above the islamic law, this is what I would do. Ally with key players, IE Iran NK Syria China Russia etc. Keep the CC elements undercover (ie me) and play hot potato. Bounce from country to country exterminating kaffirs at three basic speeds under the guise of protest. You have the starting speed, 25 – 3000 killed a day. The recoil speed, when the world notices 25-99 dead per day, and the one they have yet to use, all out war. You simply stop and send the fighters elsewhere when it gets too hot. Because of the society they live in, it is really easy to control the armies , just martyr the ones you can't control. No one is in uniform any way so you just use the rage against your enemy by misrepresenting who did it. The good dogs , are allowed to grow old , the ones that are easily controlled. But for all this to work you would need a 'promised land' that offered everything you can imagine , like snow sking in a desert. An Icon of the power since the actual generals themselves are hidden (me in this hypothetical), Islam in this case, and a purpose built reward, or promise, dubai.
    It is all a game of hot potato. Eventually it will boil over to a real war , the question is how far the opposing force is degraded to before it does. It is as if syrians were being held hostage to buy time. If you play the long game like this you win if not stopped.
