4. The U.S. is deploying high-tech weapons in the region.
These include the MQ-1C Gray Eagle drone, which is capable of destroying targets on the ground with Hellfire missiles and precision bombs. One use for the Gray Eagle would be to destroy missiles. Another potential threat is the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system (THADD), which has the capacity to shoot down ballistic missiles. It arrived at Osan Air Base in South Korea this month, CNBC reported.
5. North Korea is developing means of evading U.S. attacks and defenses.
This includes firing multiple missiles to get through THADD. It also includes the use of mobile missile launchers on all-terrain vehicles, which can be moved around to evade U.S. air attacks, Fitzpatrick reported.
6. Kim Jong-un is homicidal and potentially insane.
The North Korean leader’s estranged half-brother was murdered at the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with VX nerve agent (a chemical weapon), Malaysian police told the press. Many experts believe the murder was committed by North Korean agents. Kim John-un, 33, may have feared that his brother would try and take control. He also has had more than 300 people executed, including his uncle and his defense minister. The country also has a labor camp where people who disagree with the government are held for life. One former guard estimates that 1,500 to 2,000 people die in the camp every year from hunger and malnutrition.
When looking at life as a prepper the point is to never live in fear but in preparation. It is that knowledge and confidence in your actions that will help put your mind at ease as you know that no matter what happens you are ready for it.
