…could this lead to a new Cuban Missile Crisis?
Panama found a North Korean vessel with several missiles (stated to be “outdated”) in its hold bound from Cuba back to the Juche-state that is banned from importing almost any type of weapon by sanction.
The Cuban government, in a televised statement, stated they were headed to North Korea for “repair” and return back to the communist state.
Let’s leave the “repair” aspect of this alone — and assume for a moment, that that’s true. This means that North Korea and Cuba could very well have been doing this for awhile, freely — with nobody’s knowledge.
Imagine another Cuban Missile Crisis, with arms once again aimed at the United States by a nation less than 100 miles away from the US Coastline. Except this time, the arms and the figurative “button” are now in the hands of authoritarian North Korea — and a government hell-bent on proving a point to it’s people that it can, indeed “rain holy fire” down on the nation that the Juche and Songun state has made out to be it’s blood-enemy.
Could this be a flue warning sign of something that could come in the future? Could this have also blown open a cover of how North Korea’s been getting stuff?
