Great: Report States North Korea Is Developing Weapons Loaded With Anthrax

Tied Virginia election proves every vote actually does count

North Korea is working on technology to load Anthrax, and perhaps other biological and chemical agents, into warheads that could be placed atop Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) that are capable of hitting the United States and its allies, according to reports.

The North Korean regime has started tests with a view to loading intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with anthrax, according to regional media reports. Weaponized anthrax mostly infects humans through inhalation, which is the deadliest form of transmission.

Both chemical and biological weapons were mentioned in reference to North Korea in a National Security Strategy unveiled by Trump on Tuesday.

Anthrax is an infection of the skin, lungs, intestines or blood caused by Bacillus anthracis.

The source said that North Korea was likely looking to load its range of ICBMs with anthrax as its nuclear-tipped missiles can not yet reach the US mainland.


North Korea has a store of between 2,500 and 5,000 tons of chemical weapons, South Korea has previously said, adding that it was capable of producing biological agents like anthrax and smallpox.

Washington and Seoul have carried out joint military drills simulating and combating an attack of a biological nature.

"They are also the American politicians and the white supremacists making conceived attempts for state terrorism and racial extinction through overt research and development of the biological weapons in the worldwide-scattered U.S. laboratories", it said.

That, according to a former US government official, is the reason USA troops in South Korea have been vaccinated against smallpox and anthrax since around 2004.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has trumpeted his country's nuclear program.
