"Electric goes out. It just automatically kicks in and continues powering house your home right. Oh speaking of which has reminds me that story. I sent gavin a story yesterday. That i read in the statesman that apparently the water treatment plant in austin had a backup generator But it lost power because no one at the plant. you how to turn the generator offers. Yes yes and that's that's why we had a boil. Water notice is because the mean water plant went off line for three hours because no one. You had to turn generator on kennedy accuracy. It sitting in the movie becomes more and more relevant every year. Apparently they had. They had just appropriated funds to update the generator. Backup system this past june. Last month in january they had appropriate funds to make it so that it would become automatic and it would turn on its own but they just haven't installed the new equipment yet. Jesus christ. I want a backup generators so like right at the end like right as the world is coming to an end i can be the last streamer gaming to whoever to the aliens. I can just game all the way all the way to the battle the fortnight serve as a down. He just sat in the lobby until the end. Yeah i see the asteroid approaching from my window. Yeah as i'm just waiting for a match. It's terrifying how close the whole of texas came to just to complete bollocking meltdown. They said it was like we're like a few minutes away from losing the whole grid or something. Yeah and that would've trying to read about. I didn't really understand why it would take wanted power. But they were saying it. Probably take months to turn everything back on. I think the gist of it was that equipment would break would become overloaded and break and it's not like they can just go down to the local hardware store and buy replacement parts to fix it. It's like thing like whole pieces of infrastructure need to be remanufactured so it's like you have to contact the plant to make new pieces of hardware and equipment and then get that out and installed which would just stick months. It'll be everyone would die. It would have been a master feels like everyone would just gone. Total survival mode. No one ever even communicate with anyone. The cell towers are off. Been fricking awful. We would like minutes away. My favorite part of the whole thing was that i was like freezing my ass off like holding onto my dog in our closet because that's where we were sleeping because it's the central boosts room in the house. It's actually pretty fucking cozy. I'm probably gonna make gaming space anyways. I was texting my mom and dad with little battery. I had and they were telling me. It's because of the fucking remove meals there tapper. The their life changed it. Not at all. I'm fucking freezing. It from the perspective of like my family and england's just see on the news that texas went off even from speaks like this doc and then just never hearing from me again. That's that could've been. It would be possibly looking at the satellite views of north korea versus south korea. Dark i would assume confirmed their worst fears about you living in taxes too because so stereotypically tax us like we don't. We're not a part of the rest of the grid. We have our own grid and we completely fucked like it's so texas. How did he die just from other people's greed and stubbornness because people didn't want to pay their property taxes is that's why he died. I saw an article. Speaking of north korea where there were russian diplomats who had to use a hand trolley like cart on the railways to leave the country because their country is so stricken by covid. That couldn't even get an operating train to leave. So they're like literally pushing their luggage on a an old fashioned minor ikaria to like do the hand crank. It was really put into perspective to me. I'm not sure what. The situation became in flint michigan. Is that still going. The war thing did they eventually would able to fix the war. I feel like. I feel like i just stopped hearing about it but it really puts it into perspective surely everyone would just have to leave sani but to flee for a better state. Yeah better state always was to the point where it was like a texas didn't work it failed. Everyone has maybe come back another time so it looks like the flint situation may finally be getting resolved right about now afternoon. God ten years jerky almost decade. Say number one baby. According to wikipedia says that it ended in february of two thousand nine. But if you read this article. They're still doing work on it. Which makes me think it's still not done close. My mom was texting me from mississippi. Asked if i was ok. And just that like if. We're not doing better than mississippi like elephants but like we haven't done well as a state like we're a lot richer than mississippi. We should be able to afford our but yeah she was like are you okay. I'm like yeah. I'm ok felt bad because a lot of my friends from la interests like the country texting. Like oh how you holding up can do anything for you like. There's literally nothing you could do like. Can i ever eats you some food. And i was like there is no overeats like it's got nothing right now. I remember i wanted to see so. I launched just for just to see if there was anything out. There like you would launch ubereats. It'd be like uber. Is currently offline in your area whether check back later but yeah sure thanks people driving in that condition anyway. Oh god no shit. there was. There was a guy who was livestreaming himself. I don't know if you guys saw it. There's like a delivery driver in austin who set up a webcam or maybe it's the phone in his car and he just livestreams himself making deliveries all around town and one of those is think like monday night like after the snowstorm hit he was still out making deliveries and at one point. Maybe around eleven or twelve. At night he was driving over. By where was he was over like by pleasant valley in riverside montopoli somewhere and he was pulling into a gas station and he hit a little bit of ice and in his car slid and Hit the curb and he popped one of his tires and then he was like oh yes. I'm just going to sleep in my car right here. Now underway and industry. This live over there. I would not wanna fucking sleep in my car. And i did that. I lived there too. Yep very well we did the same thing. You did gus. We like trek to the convenience store like my daughter. And i that that monday when the snow was all on the ground and we walked like in the middle of the road because there was no tire are no cars so he just walked to a convenience store and it was open. Everyone was just buying beer just beer and this one couple just had a stack as as they were frozen pizzas many. I just felt like y'all gonna get sell fucking sick of those too much also. I hope you have a gas in an electrical true. Yeah i lucked out. Because i'm so shit at cooking that i have nothing but canned foods so like i was pretty good.

And it's pretty much anything ranging from palace pros From both ear to cycling ear to winter jackets could be anything from maki North face to to the old nineteen ninety a starter jacket. Everybody has the chicago bulls one that we all grew up more so i always try to find the brand. The brand names let everyone tries to buy but off discount and then obviously compared to larger with nike and medicine and things like that.

Eileen Donahoe has a different perspective. She was Obama's ambassador there and said U S leadership made a difference. We got a special rapid tour focus specifically on Iran.

I think we're going to see that kind of come up as a battle and i actually. I would be surprised. If in the end there wasn't some way to have Blockchain side feature privacy prominently because in a way. I can't imagine the technology really taking off in all the ways that it could take off if there wasn't such a feature and you even see that like in a forthcoming episode. I have unconfirmed. It's a panel discussion but there is somebody from the federal reserve who talks about building systems for central bank digital currencies. Who says you know flat out like you can't design these systems unless you have privacy you as a consideration from the beginning he said it cannot be an afterthought and and he's talking about for central bank digital currency so. I really do think that you'd at least some of these vaccines will have to feature it prominently and i. I don't think that we're going to end up with blockchain set it at all. I would be surprised on a long enough time scale. I do think in the in the beginning. There might be a bit of a battle. But i think after we got real adoption then i would be very surprised if we don't start to see more privacy
US government agencies hacked, Russia suspected
"Russia is suspected of having multiple us government agencies including the department of homeland security and the commerce treasury departments. The heck is said to have gone undetected for months the investigation is still underway. And there's a lot we don't know yet but when the smoke clears matter say the breach could amount to one of the most significant national security failures in years or puerto dustin bolts cover cybersecurity and intelligence for the wall street journal and he joins us now to talk more about this destined. Thanks for joining me. Humanity could be here all right. So what do we know about who these hackers are and how they gained access so we are still learning a lot about this hack and how it came to be and who's behind it but what we are hearing so far from our sources in and outside the government is that this is believed to be russia's foreign intelligence service. This is an elite cyber espionage group that has engaged in successful cyber attacks against government agencies in the past most notably they preached the obama administration several years ago including the state department in the white house also in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen election. They were also implicated in hacking the democratic national committee. They are not the group that ultimately was responsible for leaking those emails and sort of interfering in the election. That was a separate russian group but this group had been actually in the dnc systems for a longer amount of time sort of quietly engaging and political espionage so this is a confirmed that it is these russians. These are very very capable. Hackers considered some of the best spies basically in the world when it comes to this type of behavior and what we know about how they gain access to all these agencies so the suspected russian operation involved basically hijacking a routine software update mechanism for this company called solar winds that does network management four tons of government agencies and more than four hundred of the fortune five hundred companies in the us essentially by hijacking this software upgrading mechanism The hackers were able to build a backdoor into the networks of targets that they wanted to pursue and over the course of several months. We actually think this dates back to march of this year. According to solar winds and other sources they were able to determine which ones they wanted to go after based on their intelligence directives and burrow into their systems and lie in wait for for weeks or months scanning emails spying on internal communications. And that sort of thing. This is sort of a cybersecurity. Professionals would call a supply chain attack where they're able to compromise something that is used widely by a lot of different customers and then by doing that they can sort of have free rein to go after the victims that are then compromised as a result of that attack. We should note here. That russia has denied responsibility for the attack destined. How big a deal is this breach in relation to what we've seen before. Can you just kind of put this into context for us. This is a very significant breach. The only question is sort of how significant it is and is it going to count eventually when all said and done as one of the worst cyber breaches on record. Someone i spoke to. He told me that on a scale of one to ten in terms of severity. This ranks as a tent and the expectation is that in the coming days and weeks. We're probably going to learn about a lot. More government agencies that were breached as well as potentially any number of private networks ranging from defense contractors to accounting firms to a major major companies and all sorts of industries that would be potentially relevant to the hackers. There's a lot remains to be seen about how significant this is. But this is certainly alarming folks inside the government and around the cyber security community. It is worth noting that by all accounts. This is cyber espionage campaign. This was not something that was destructive. This was not you know. This wasn't a ransomware attack. Where hospital now works. Were being frozen opera. Something and they were unable to access patient data. This wasn't it's like some of the major attacks we've seen in recent years that were attributed to north korea for example that did damage to hundreds of thousands of systems around the world. This does appear to be classic espionage but very very significant espionage that got it and this is the result of hackers exploiting of onery product by a private company that's commonly used by the government among other customers. You know it sounds like every link in the chain has to be secure in order to keep your systems safe. How does the government do that is even possible. That is a question and that is something that a lot of folks and government has spent years trying to focus on and they have not come up with a clear easy solution. The reality is that the federal government uses hundreds or thousands of vendors across all the agencies and it is very difficult to maintain the security across the entire supply chain. It's easy to forget that. Just a few years ago several agencies. We're using ski lab products. Despite widespread concerns that that russia antivirus company could potentially be a security risk. Because i of course you know denied all those allegations but the risks were very well known in the us government but they were still being used widely in several different agencies. And so when you sort of take a step back and you realize there's just tons and tons of vendors being used it is really really difficult to ensure the security of all of them and make sure that they're dealing with all the best practices and protecting their systems as much as they should be but this is the lawmakers in both parties have brought attention to that they've raised concern about. And and this is certainly going to add to the level of scrutiny. Another thing that i think is worth noting solar winds actually listed on its publicly available website. All of its many government clients and a lot of his high profile private sector clients. So if you are a hacker with a foreign government this is sort of a roadmap for you to know that. Hey if i can infiltrate these guys. I'll have the keys to the kingdom for all sorts of folks for example in the nsa nasa all branches of the military again more than four hundred the top five hundred fortune five hundred companies and they were all publicly listed on solar wins website as customers and so it would be very easy to identify them as a top target given the the huge range of customers that they had and you mentioned before that even figuring out the scope of this attack. Something that's gonna take days or weeks maybe months so what happens next. How does the government go about re securing. Its systems that remains to be seen as well there are lawmakers already who are saying that they are very concerned about this and that they hope that the outgoing trump administration takes seriously. But this is coming out. A uniquely vulnerable moment for the federal government given that we have a president elect joe biden set to take office and a little bit more than a month. And so it's not clear how. The trump administration plans to respond or mitigate these issues the department of homeland security's cyber wing did issue an emergency directive telling all civilian agencies to immediately uninstall the software from their systems. But that alone won't necessarily fix the problem because the hackers already and getting rid of that software doesn't necessarily in the fight certainly. This is something that folks are concerned about the administration and it's going to be a top concern for the incoming biden administration. I mean imagine a world which now seems that we're in where the administration is taking office shortly after. Several of the federal agencies have been ransacked by a hostile power. It looks like that's what's happening and it seems like that's going to be a serious issue that the biden administration is going to have to deal with wants to take office on january twentieth. And i just want to widen out for a second here. You cover cybersecurity intelligence forest and it has been a really busy year for your beat. It seems like every week practically. We're learning about new breaches. Why is that because twenty twenty has just been one heck of a year. I mean the reality is. There's a lot of added vulnerabilities given the pandemic right. So people are working from home meaning that they're relying more on technology than ever before that is allowed. Hackers to have added opportunities to mess with businesses. Hospitals have been obviously stressed under the pandemic meaning. That ransomware attacks on on their systems are more urgent than ever. And at the same time. You have a lot of foreign governments and others who are very interested in stealing vaccine research and so when you add all those things together. In addition to the fact that there was an election in which they're were heightened concerns about four interference. There was just sort of a lot of things happening in the world that made us more vulnerable and more at risk for cybersecurity episodes. And what you're seeing right now could have happened regardless of the pandemic but the reality is that i think twenty twenty showed us. Just how reliant. We are technology and how we need to be ever vigilant dealing with those threats.

"Okay so knowing that background. If Kim Jong is gravely ill even dead already. You have to take his place. There are very few good options for North Korea who the regime and this situation because there was no clear succession plan whatsoever and is like I mentioned before about how. This bloodline is so important to Mrs. Why the Kim family claims the right to need so would have to be somebody in the family and it pretty much has to be a man because most careers so confusion and so traditional has high recco system. It's hard to make that a woman could take that wrong and there is no in the consent me to take over. He has one son who was about two years old. I'm some clearly not about to me anytime soon. So there's no obvious male successor. They add the only person in the family who serves any role in the regime and has any kind of profile is a sister community young. Who's about thirty one years old and is very? She's his supporter has aid. She's there with him. Bringing him a pain or ashtray or making sure that everything goes smoothly for her brother and his new screams don't know that she's the system. She's not introduced to them in that way. She is just a member of official in. The work has pat tape. But so she's really the only one and she's not a good option. For what this chauvinistic system. Because the fact she's a woman but it's hard to say how else could be so would create a real crisis. I think inside North Korea if they suddenly had to try to arrange successor at short notice is the link between the ruling family and military close or they sort of functionally actually separate entities. No it's all very intertwined damning Kim Jong on his head of military and the political workers pads eight and he tops changes his top officials from both sides all the time. He's maybe a little more aligned West. The Workers Party the political side than his father was but Stanley. He needs both sides and has been using both sides. I think that's also part of the reason why he's perceived. A nuclear weapons is to placate the military. The way to give them some. You know shining you toys to play with them so that they don't overthrow this. Just millennial dictator.

"Can you give us a sense about what we know about Kim Jong Il? No you've written a book about him. What's his what. What distinguishes him from his from the came in the family. Yeah I mean I think there's this tendency to view him as a cartoon character dictator mean partly because he has such a bizarre appearance with his Abassi in his funny head to the various photo shoots he does. I'm but I. That's I think to underestimate him to treat him in that way because he has really defied all expectations and he's been leading mouth almost eight and a half years and I think he's done that by being very strategic and ruthless and calculating and the way he has really at pursued nuclear weapons west unprecedented Vega and made really tangible progress but also being quite ambitious intensive the economy in some slight opening some slight reforms that he's Ashington net so he's much more. I think than his father was much more willing to take risks and Tim says yes. Threatening the United States meeting the leader of the United States allowing market forces to operate if you were living in a village outside Kim Young North Korea would have improved under Kim Jong UN's role or deteriorated or we just aren't really aren't and probably would have gotten slightly better in that. You know I would be allowed to make my own living now whereas before people had to live I to work in a state jobs like where can affect trait has known kid has no talent and saying they would still have to go to this job and get nothing for it is now because there is more of a mock economy which is something that conjunction has allowed to happen.

"So Kim Jong Hoon has been leading North Korea since twenty eleven when he took over from his father. Kim Jong Il and with the exception of his distinctive haircut and wardrobe. It's probably fair to say Kim. Jong UN is best known for his attempts to develop nuclear weapons right while Kim. Jong UN is mostly a figure of ridicule in Western countries. He's obviously a ruthless tyrant at harm. We know that he shifts his enemies off to labor camps that he reportedly shoots people who fall asleep while he's speaking and he's also widely believed to have had his half-brother poisoned while boarding a flight in Malaysia. Three years ago and inside from that we know almost nothing about Kim. Jong UN's day to day life except that on the fifteenth of April. Every year he makes a public appearance at his dead. Grandad's birthday potty except this year. He wasn't there so to talk about what that means. We called Anna Fifield. The Beijing bureau chief at The Washington Post and she wrote a book about Kim Jong UN cold. The great successor just to start. Can you give us a sense about what we know at the time that we're taping this interview about the whereabouts and Health Status of Kim Jong? Yeah well we don't know for sure pretty much anything career is such a black hole and issues relating to the leader himself are extremely closely held. So yeah there's very little that we can say for sure. But there's a lot of rumor that as a Sitcom about him because he has been missing for a couple of weeks notably he did not appear at the most important ceremony in North Korea. Which is the commemoration of his grandfather's birthday. So that happened. Which had kind of people puzzled what's going on and then these reports came out. Rumors started speculating that he had a hot operation and that he was a light recovering or that had gone badly and he was in bad shape. Perhaps even did. Yeah and what? What is the original source of this set of rumors as far as I can say? It's sort of like a news website run in South Korea by dissidents. That was the that was the story that CNN kind of picked up Waco. What do we know about the genesis of it? Yeah that's right. So that all started with the daily in K which is a website based in South Korea. Run by people who've escaped from North Korea. And I find this website very reliable about day to day things they have informants inside North Korea and they often report things about like the price of rice and certain cities. Things that like ordinary people would know.

"Marco Werman. This is the world. Thanks for joining us on this. This Christmas Eve as we've been reporting this week. North Korea has sent a warning that it might be preparing an unwelcome Christmas gift for the United States. Today President Donald Trump was asked just about that he was at his mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach Florida and he appeared to brush away the concern. That's okay we'll find out but the surprises and we'll deal with it versus excessively. Let's see what happens. Everybody's got surprises. But let's see what happens. I handle them as they come along. So how did we get to this point with North North Korea. Here's the world's Chris Wolf. You could say that. Donald trump inherited a pre existing condition from Barack Obama. George Chair tag twin. Either way you'll get yours in two thousand sixteen North Korean television announced on a hydrogen bomb test the H. Bomb of course can destroy entire cities. He's North Korea was also perfecting missiles to reach the United States. Jeffrey Lewis a professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Affairs in Monterey says this would have presented a huge challenge for any incoming administration an adversary of the United States had not acquired the ability to hit the US with nuclear weapon. Since China did more than thirty years years ago Obama ramped up sanctions against North Korea but Donald Trump put them into overdrive sung. Yoon Lee teaches Korean. Affairs at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. You throughout two thousand seventeen. The trump administration did the right thing in that for the first time in history. The United States tried to galvanize the international community to put maximum financial pressure on North Korea. Trump's maximum pressure policy also included threats of more severe consequences North Korea Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury life. The world has never seen but North Korea responded in kind that were more missile tests and more gushing on North Korean television into doing Nicole Nago movie on TV and John Twenty Seventeen.

regime according to a psychological profile put together by US intelligence Kim Jong UN may you'll compelled to prove just how tough is in order to make up for his inexperience the president is right now on board Air Force One headed back to Washington after his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un we had a very good field right from the beginning and we're able to get something very important people were saying like he's got a very good personality he's funny and he's very very smart he's a great negotiator our guest today is June back she's a senior fellow at Brookings and former CIA analyst junk thanks so much for talking to us today let's start by discussing the problem of North Korean it's nukes okay talk us through it for decades it has been a cord a priority of US foreign policy to limit the spread of nuclear weapons and yet analysts predict that by next year North Korea will have as many as hundred bombs so what's going on here I think when we look at North Korea it's poor it Scott a repressive system forty percent or fifty percent of its people are malnourished or undernourished there is widespread stunting because people can't get enough food would have as many as a hundred twenty thousand two hundred thousand people in prison camps and yet they're still relevant in North Korea's relevance is in the fact that they're a disruptive not in East Asia where we have most of the world's economic growth and we have leading that country a thirty five year old who is paranoid power obsessed and has nuclear weapons and so that is the problem here is that how do you deal with a state like North Korea at that refuses to engage in any meaningful way and the regime has a death grip on these nuclear weapons that are not willing to give up and left talk about why this problem has proved so stubborn and persistent it's because it's not like the United States has been ignoring this issue right presidents going back at least Bill Clinton had and struggling to deal with it Jonathan I've been looking at some of the old CIA declassified documents going back to the fifties you know when nineteen fifty when North Korean forces attacked South Korea and North Korea even without nuclear weapons has been a national security concern for the United States and it's because it had a large army that was forward deploy toward the peninsula we had kale song the country's founder that was intent on reunification by force and who was not willing to give up his own power and consol dating his power through repression through military means through mass purges an ideology of isolation and self reliance he would eventually create one of the host secretive totalitarian and unique states in history and sometime around the one thousand nine hundred sixty s he started thinking about nuclear weapons he saw this as the old Samat guarantor of his rule to godlike status a cult of personality the world has rarely seen now you've written that a former colleague of yours in the once said that trying to understand the North Korean problem is like working on Jigsaw puzzle where you have a mere hint all of pieces in your opponent is purposely throwing pieces from other puzzles into the box what does that mean I get the intent or the spirit of that message is that there are lots of the pieces out there there are lots of information out there and you as the analyst you put those pieces together to have a story but when you look at a puzzle you have the box and you know what it's supposed to look like the problem is that we don't know what it's supposed to look like and our adversaries continue to throw an extra pieces different pieces different colors shapes sizes to throw you off you know it's common for every administration to do a policy review on North Korea and I think that's one of the key and says and one of our key weaknesses North Korea the Kim Dynasty has thought about US relations and about its regime survived Bowl and geopolitics it Sarah from a dynastic perspective whereas we talk about it in terms of four years or eight years or every presidential all election It's harder for democracies to have a consistent policy on an issue like North Korea I am pleased that the United States and North Korea yesterday reached agreement on the text of a framework document on North Korea's new Lear program this agreement will help to achieve and the negotiations did not fail because the gaps were wide because the level of trust was too low danger of the people of Northeast Asia they are a blatant violation of international law and they contradict the North Korea's own prior commitments now and you think consistency would have helped in this case but I think North takes advantage of inconsistency and this is one of the things that the North Koreans tell our diplomats and other people all the time is that why should we trust you guys because you throwaway various agreements never follow through. Why would we give something up if we can't trust you to follow through on your end and that's you know that's our strength mcreavy but it's also a weakness when we deal with North Korea so it sounds like we can summarize the problem by saying the following the how do you deal with nuclear-arms state that's building more bombs all the time that represents an existential threat and yet is not interested in any of the typical inducements that we offer in cases like this because it doesn't really want peace doesn't want to be integrated into the Western system everything that we've tried has failed and yet we can't stop trying because the threat is so great is that fair I would also add that it's highly unlikely that North Korea would use nuclear weapons on US I but the dangerous what that does to North Korea's decision making I have nuclear weapons that means that it can poke and prod elsewhere and you know we're not just talking about the nuclear weapons program I think the regime almost certainly knows that using it against the United States or anybody in the region or elsewhere is likely to lead to a regime ending response so I don't think we're there on regime intentions the problem is what the regime feels emboldened that Indu because it has weapons and because other countries would be reluctant to strike at North Korea for fear of sparking a nuclear conflict Kim Jong UN is sending a message here and it's crystal clear he wants a full-fledged nuclear capability and right now nothing is slowing him down.
"north korea" Discussed on Arms Control Wonk
"Pretty nice addition to north korea's capabilities so this has been ongoing throughout the first half of the year but what's really interesting is that the assessment really has to do with the manufacturer of the vehicles themselves and associated support equipment but not with the actual manufacturer of airframes for two missiles which is an interesting choice on north korea's part i think there's several hypotheses to make sense that choice right on the more benign and you have sort of the idea that north korea is withholding from the production of airframes as diplomacy is ongoing as a show of goodwill on the more nefarious end you have the hypothesis that north korea's working on more advanced airframe materials and they're waiting to maybe figure out a production line for those so they're not continuing with the old medal based airframes they have have flight tested so far so that is the ongoing assessment but i think the clear takeaway here for the ongoing diplomacy is that they not only do we have this evidence of you know young van and other covert sites containing enrichment but their ballistic missile complex continues to be in full swing although we have also seen significantly reduced activities with regard to the movement of tells and missile transporters around the country last year in two thousand seventeen you know we had all sorts of coming out based on intel assessments on north korea's moving twelve's around the country and you know you'd see reports cbs nbc like north korea's moving missiles around possibly they're going to launch something but they were doing that every week and really this year that's been a noticeable decrease in the assessments that they're not just shuffling this around chong province near coup song or there was a lot of activity going on last year in the ballistic missile operating areas so it's interesting that the productions ongoing for the tells and the support materials possibly also for the the icbm tells but we don't really have an assessment on that yet and that's more complicated house for north korea given how large those vehicles are fairly difficult to manufacture but still probably get there to time because i think we saw signs last year of conjunction taking an interest in that so i think for them the tell again is a constraint so if they have six launchers and well maybe even less if they're thinking they wanna keep some ira bm's on them but let's say six launchers than they probably don't have a strong desire to make more than that until they're able to make more launchers so i find hell counting really intriguing because it's a constraint right you can only launch as many missiles as you have launchers for and i don't want to take their thunder but just to also make a little shout out i think dave schmor and jeffrey lewis are going to have something on solid fuel for the pook song to as well onto two so i mean we can definitely see that at the facilities on the east coast are active and happening and i won't take their thunder by saying anything more on that just stay small peer review part of that significance of the composite material airframes something which maybe just briefly mentioned why later more staff exactly we saw evidence last year in august when kim jong and visited the chemical materials institute of filaments casings sitting around that syllabi so we assume that they're manufacturing those and they have a supply chain and i feel like we saw in a parade to not in that and not in that design but another colleague michael dudes men he he noticed the wound filament in another missile designs on one on the on the trailer yeah yeah so this is for me i tend to think about this in the context of some of the pledges in the near speeches ms the the twentyseven teen kim jong new year speech was like we're going to get to the finish line in terms of icbm are indeed at the end of twenty seventeen he declared victory on that at the twenty eight team new year speech said mass production and quantitative expansion of the arsenal so i at least fully expect that that is what they are going.

"Probably can reach not only the west coast of the united states but all of the united states including florida so you think the chances of them having a nuclear weapon is able to fit on an intercontinental ballistic missile ethan the chances a fairly high i can't actually right out an equation that proves it if so facto but if we look at you know what china other countries did at this point and if we think of all the benefits that north korea has of advanced technology than yes i think from a policy standpoint you have to be open to the probability that this will work for them by differ of been shown his important that i agree weeks militia led the eventually they will get there but do they have the capability today it launch nucleartipped missile at the united states in in my opinion the answer is no not yet although this less on fifteen is one big missile that can most likely reach the united states they had one launch of this missile in a lofted trajectory there is no way that you can have confidence that that missile is going to be able to be fired end arrived reliably eventually in my opinion they will get there but they are not capable of doing that today they may not be capable of sending nuclear weapons to the us but they certainly are capable today of sending them to japan and south korea so it's a very dangerous situation now and it may be that we have a different understanding of what's the word capable truly means i guess when i think of north korea i think that they rely on good enough much more than any us military programme ever would it's frustrating that they seemed to be sloppy.

"Really is quite striking the president at lieutenantgeneral mcmaster the national security adviser are both saying that north korea can't be deterred that is that they way we protect ourselves against the soviet union since nineteen forty eight or nine when they got nuclear weapons the way we defend ourselves against china the way we defend ourselves against other nuclear possessor states is inadequate to handling the emergent north korean nuclear program and i think that's fundamentally untrue it's true that we haven't been able to deter north korea from continuing to work on nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that could reach the united states but the north koreans have been deterred since 1950s three from attacking the united states south korea japan or other countries whose security we are committed to and care about and so i'm actually genuinely worried that the white house might believe what they're saying and the second thing is even if they don't believe what they're saying they are painting themselves into a corner where the president's only options will be either a humiliating climbdown and accepting north korea's nuclear weapons and that we can deter them as we have deterred them in the past and as we have deterred other states that our nuclear weapons possessors so either that or fighting a preventative war against north korea to remove those weapons from their possession and i think the costs of choosing to fight that war on the basis of a threat that they might use those weapons against us would be not only horror ethically.

"Has focused a lot of people's attention on it but i don't believe that the uh other than north korea's reach uh nothing much has changed the north korea's required a lot of diplomatic attention uh we did not only attuned to the signals that the us's funding diplomatically to the country itself but to all of our allies in the region and around the world a what's your sense of how the uh the state department is engaging now what's the sense of the back and forth with our allies um and with other actors in the region why all hope that there is a considerable amount of work or yarn ticker certainly president more air of south korea have indicated that he would like to her you know reopen negotiation for north korea would like to back away from the uh uh brakemanship here uh i think that you know japan um have i think become more concerned uh and i you've just read i think today that uh uh there um leaders in japan calling for you know beefing up their defences and even possibly developing uh a nuclear arsenal of their own um you know we we've been reading about the uh efforts of the united states than making with uh president xi jinping in china to try to get china more engaged in uh pressuring north korea and in fact that those of you that some success with the un sanctions that test uh i believe last week uh so i think there's a you know this is a big concern on i expect that you know a lot more is at stake here than just you know well the leaders in washington and pyongyang mark donald trump seems just sent a red line am i mistaken.

"Uh and they want to be recognized as such which is completely anathema to the whole objective of negotiation which is to rid them of their nuclear weapons so that you that's a very difficult um part of any future negotiation and diplomats will find a way to tippytoe around it you know they'll still say we think it's about denuclearization so i think they're waste of at least two politically diplomatically um to to tippytoe around this issue but in the end it for looking for results um um it's going to be a very difficult decision for the president to because he will have to decide whether we will accept suboptimal agreements on north korea's nuclear weapons at wrote part of it but not all of it um you know that's what was done in iran that was done what was done in india right now i believe there's no mindset in washington new to do anything like that for north korea there will be no iran deal for north korea there will be no india deal for north korea um uh but uh but the last resort military action uh is just very difficult to think about at the same time so that's why this is such a difficult issue i mean i could imagine being split in some way for the president to look good for noone could get a deal on i gotta deal but if it's a deal that leaves the us in peril rats that's not a good on no i mean i don't think.
