Korea Constructs New Missiles While Trump Claims Denuclearization Success

Last Friday, North Korea returned what were said to be dozens of remains of American soldiers missing from the 1950-53 Korean War, something leader Kim Jong-un promised during a June summit with President Trump.

The troops carefully set each box on risers inside a hangar as Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart. Adm. Phil Davidson, commander of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, saluted. About 5,300 were lost in what is now North Korea.

The remains will be taken to a laboratory at the base for identification and experts say the process could take anything from days to decades.

More than 326,000 Americans fought alongside soldiers from South Korea as part of a United Nations coalition during the war to support the South against the Communist North.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, were joined by Diana Brown Sanfilippo (second from left), her husband, Robert (left), and Rick Downes (center). They met ahead of the formal ceremony.

38 North was founded by two North Korea experts from Johns Hopkins University.

About 7,700 USA soldiers are listed as missing from the 1950-53 Korean War and about 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea. "Today our boys are coming home". So North Korea pretends to give up the bomb, Trump pretends to believe it, and both sides pretend North Korea has returned American war dead, and they hope to keep it up long enough to sustain some "No-bel!" chants through Trump's reelection campaign.

His uncle, who was from Honolulu, was a corporal in the 31st Infantry Regiment of the Army's 7th Infantry Division. About 33,000 coalition troops remain unaccounted for. He said this was an worldwide effort to bring closure for families. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) examined the remains at the air base.

However, the cases only include one dog tag, so the identifying process could be hard and may take yeas to complete.

"So when. only one dog tag was provided, it's probably not to tease the USA but rather that it was sent because it could offer clues to the remains".

Kim agreed with Trump to repatriate the remains of U.S. troops during June's summit, the first-ever meeting between a top DPRK leader and a sitting United States president. Four U.S. fighter jets flew low in a tribute.

It was not the first time US intelligence clashed with the president's optimism.

The service organization Veterans of Foreign Wars, which has taken a leading role in pushing for the recovery of war remains, says that part of the problem is lack of DNA samples from family members.

It could be hard to find out if the remains are even American military members.

"The Korean War fallen have never been forgotten by the United States of America nor the 16 other sending states that comprise the UNC".

The factory is known to have produced the Hwasong-15, the first North Korean ICBM capable of reaching the US.

The Washington Post spoke to multiple intelligence officials who have monitored "ongoing activity" recently from North Korea's nuclear and missile testing facilities.

The findings are the latest to suggest activity in the North's nuclear and missile facilities despite arms negotiations with the United States and a recent summit between President Donald Trump and tyrant Kim Jong-un. Trump thanked Kim for the return.

This spring, however, Trump took a vastly different approach in his dealings with his North Korean counterpart, leading to the "epochal" summit in Singapore in which North Korean denuclearization was agreed upon. Pompeo said there was "an bad long way to go" before North Korea could no longer be viewed as a nuclear threat.

But Trump now faces criticism at home and elsewhere that North Korea hasn't taken any serious steps toward disarmament and may be trying to buy time to weaken worldwide sanctions against it.
