    Satellite images reveal tunneling and other construction activity at two sites believed to house long-range missiles.

    North Korea appears to be expanding a missile base in a remote, mountainous part of the country, according to new commercial satellite imagery studied by independent researchers.
    The base, located near the Chinese border, is believed to be capable of housing long-range missiles that could, in theory, hit the United States. Researchers say they see clear signs that the base is being upgraded.

    "They are constructing hardened drive-through shelters for the vehicles that would carry the long-range missiles," says Catherine Dill, a senior research associate with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, which conducted the analysis. "And they are also constructing tunnel entrances."

    Seoul voices concerns as more Chinese military aircraft spread their wings in South Korea


    South Korea has voiced its frustration about repeated intrusions into its air defence identification zone by Chinese military aircraft, moves that analysts say reflect Beijing’s opposition to strengthening ties between Seoul, Tokyo and Washington.
    South Korean authorities said a Chinese plane, possibly a Shaanxi Y-9 electronic warfare and surveillance aircraft flew into the Korean zone Monday last week without notice. The plane entered near Socotra Rock in the Sea of Japan, or East Sea, at about 11am and flew out and into Japan’s air defence identification zone about 40 minutes later.
    The plane re-entered the South Korean air defence zone, near the southeastern city of Pohang, at about 12.43pm. Then it travelled up to South Korea’s Exclusive Economic Zone in the Sea of Japan, cutting between the South Korean mainland and Ulleung island.

    It's not over yet.

    What does team troll want trump to do? End all sanctions and "get played"? Declare war?

    Trump has jacked up sanctions and given Kim almost nothing, just how is he being "played"?

    Libertarians would want Trump to end all sanctions, bring the troops home and let the North do whatever it want with its weapons program, TDS victims will attack him no matter what does, even if he gets Kim to denuclearize.

    John Bolton says North Korea failure to meet commitments requires second Trump-Kim summit

    Bolton: N. Korea hasn't lived up to commitments 02:09

    Washington (CNN)National security adviser John Bolton said Tuesday that President Donald Trump believes he should hold a second summit with Kim Jong Un because the North Korean leader hasn't lived up to commitments he made during their first meeting.

    "They have not lived up to the commitments so far," Bolton said at The Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Council conference in Washington. "That's why I think the President thinks that another summit is likely to be productive."
