North Korea begins tests to load Anthrax onto ICBMs, report says

The threat of an impending war with North Korea intensified after the country's state television reported last month it launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile, Hwasong 15, which is a nuclear-capable weapon that could reach the entire continental U.S.

North Korea is believed to have started its chemical and biological weapons program in the early 1960s and began possibly weaponizing biological agents in the 1980s, according to the report.

Japanese paper quotes a source who says testing involves ensuring anthrax survives the vast temperatures generated during re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.

The report by NTI also stated North Korea was capable of indigenously producing other agents of biological warfare including Variola major (smallpox), Francisella tularensis (rabbit fever), and Bunyaviridae Hantavirus (Korean hemorrhagic fever).

Google Pixel 2 AR Stickers Ready To Go
Replies to this solution, however, prove that it does not seem to work for most Pixel 2 owners in the thread. Recently the Pixel 2 was reported to have a slow fingerprint sensor after the Android 8.1 update.

North Korea denied the reports, however, with the state-run Korean Central News Agency citing Pyongyang's adherence to the Biological Weapons Convention, thus "maintain [ing] its consistent stand to oppose development, manufacture, stockpiling and possession of biological weapons".

The White House said in its new National Security Strategy, issued on Monday, that North Korea is pursuing "nuclear, chemical and biological weapons". However, North Korea has set to ideal its re-entry technology.

North Korea isn't limiting their arsenal to conventional weapons, but is actively experimenting with biological weapons as well, according to a report in Japan's Asahi newspaper.

Kim Jong Un's scientists launched its "greatest" ICBM in late November that the regime claimed could carry a "super-heavy nuclear warhead" that could strike "the whole mainland of the U.S".
