N. Korea sub missile claim looks like a bluff


WASHINGTON, DC: North Korea’s claim that it launched a ballistic missile from a submarine was mostly likely a bluff and the images it released appear photoshopped to overstate the regime’s military power, US experts said Tuesday. Pyongyang state media announced triumphantly on Saturday that a new submarine-launched ballistic missile had been tested successfully, under the personal supervision of the country’s leader Kim Jong-Un. But US defense officials have privately voiced skepticism that anything resembling a ballistic missile was test-fired. And analysts who closely follow North Korea’s weapons programs are not convinced either.
