The following post is from a former CIA agent who’s area of operations was Iran. I had the priveledge of speaking at length recently to someone who knows him fairly well. He correctly published information on the arrests of opposition leaders in Iran well before CNN or any major news source did. Now he predicts the following:
North Korea and Iran’s Joint Nuclear Bomb Test
On December 30 of 2010, I revealed in my article, “Is Iran About to Test a Nuclear Bomb In North Korea?” that according to reports from inside Iran, a team of Iranian nuclear scientists have been sent to North Korea and that the two governments have agreed to a joint nuclear test in North Korea with a substantial financial reward for the Kim Jong-Il government. Also, that in order to avoid a possible military reaction by the West, Iran is working covertly with North Korea until such a time they are capable of weaponizing their ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads.
Reports today in The Korean Times suggest that North Korea is preparing for its third nuclear bomb test by digging additional tunnels at the Musudan-ri Launch Facility. “It’s obvious that North Korea is preparing for a third nuclear test,” the source said on condition of anonymity, adding that multiple tunnels are being dug so that Pyongyang can choose the best one to conduct the test. The facility, located in Punggye-ri in the country’s northwest corner, is the site of the North’s previous tests in 2006 and 2009.
It is no secret that Iran and North Korea are collaborating in a ballistic missile program. The North Koreans provided Iran with the technology and know-how to build the Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missile, which is a copy of the Nodong-1 missile. The Shahb-3 missile has a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles), which covers all of the U.S. military bases in the Middle East and the entire country of Israel.
Most alarming, recent WikiLeaks releases reveal that Iran obtained a cache of advanced missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads (based on a Russian design) from North Korea. Now, for the first time, Iran has the capability to target every capital in Western Europe.
