North Korea is rapidly developing a fleet of nuclear submarines that can strike Guam, Hawaii and Alaska.
The Chosun Ilbo reports that, "A rightwing U.S. webzine on Tuesday claimed North Korea is developing a submarine capable of launching ballistic missiles. "A missile launch tube on a North Korean submarine was observed recently by U.S. intelligence agencies and is raising new concerns about the missile and nuclear threat from the communist regime in Pyongyang," the Washington Free Beacon claimed."
North Korean nuke subs will have quick strike capabilities.
According to the Chosun Ilbo, "It cited speculation that the submarine would be either a modification of the Romeo-class diesel submarine that was made by Russia or China or a copy of the old Soviet Golf-class submarine that the North bought from Russia in the mid-1990s."
The White House has not yet issued a formal response to the matter.
