There is no visible indication that North Korea has begun dismantling missile launch sites as reportedly promised, according to satellite imagery shared by 38 North.
The program, hosted by the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, analyzed and posted imagery of the known locations of North Koreas missile launch facilities on Thursday and Friday. According to the analysis, 38 North reported that it could not identify any activity associated with the dismantlement at any testing sites.
There are six known launch and engine testing facilities as well as two eject test stands scattered throughout North Korea.
"Of these facilities and test stands, it is likely that President [Donald] Trumps comment on June 12 regarding the destruction of a '
major missile engine testing site' was not referring to either the Iha-ri test standwhich was razed in Mayor the Sinpo South Shipyard test stand that has not been used in approximately a year. And contrary to the presidents statement, both sites have been solely used for ejection tests, not engine tests or launches," the report indicated.

“I just checked our house on google maps. The image is from 2015 but the map says copyright 2018.”
LOL, expected by the Left.
IT’S BEEN FIVE WHOLE DAYS, WHAT’S TAKING THEM SO LONG??? /S
What is it with the word: DISMANTLE? What a bunch of pansies... if we were serious, we would DESTROY their nukes, missiles and anything connected with them. A few dozen MOABs would end the never-ending chatter expected for years to come over DISMANTLING.
A few MOABs dropped on these sites would be visible from space.
Libtards are funny. They have their ass handed to them and ask why?
Lol!!!! They met on Tuesday, this is Sunday.
They’re not even attempting to make their propaganda believable anymore.
I thought all that was signed so far was a letter of intent. Don’t a lot of details have to be laid out and agreed to first? Then of course you know Lil Kim will work a deal where he doesn’t have to pay for the dismantling. Kind of early to be expecting a lot.
Is there a credible source reporting that they are dismantling the missile facilities?
They are losing the old blue and yellow-dogs.
The kids they have but those idiots don’t vote anyway.
Yah...Where are the libs SCREAMING that king obama didn’t dismantle GITMO after nearly eight (8!) years of trying?
He doesnt have a “magic wand
According to Barry, he has one..”
At least that what the “boys” down at the bathhouse say!
OK, so you pull up an image and then save it again with a new “creation” date...
This is what you see and without access to the image metadata you are blowing smoke
A couple of years ago I checked on Google Maps the house of a friend. The house matching my friends address on Google turned out to be one of his neighbors, not his address at all.
The latest photo of the Sohae test stand that 38 North posts was taken on May 26, 2018 (almost three weeks before KJU supposedly committed to do the decommissioning)!
BTW, you can see the test stand for yourself at
on Google Earth.
I’d bet the farm that the very same could be said about Iran, but what does the lame stream media say? Crickets...
Unless you have "elevation exaggeration" set to minimum (0.01) and tilt set to zero, Google Earth will always display location errors.
Also, differences in offset viewing angle between overflights (the satellite path seldom passes directly over your site of interest) can worsen the above errors -- if you have exaggeration and tilt on....
With Google Earth, I can survey irregularly-shaped tracts several dozens of acres in extent -- and still "close" (return to the POB) within a tenth of a foot. But -- that requires care in eliminating viewing errors as above...
The Norths calculus is that cyber warfare is more important than nuclear. This is why Fat Boy is at the table.
