Mission Accomplished.

New satellite images show North Korea has made rapid improvements to the infrastructure at its Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center -- a facility used to produce weapons-grade fissile material, according to an analysis published by 38 North, a prominent North Korea monitoring group.

Captured on June 21, the photos reveal modifications to the site's plutonium production reactor and the construction of several support facilities -- long-planned upgrades that were already underway before North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump met in Singapore earlier this month.

Better that than "fire and fury" with Seoul reduced to a gutted hellscape.

 

Which wasn't really on the table until Trump started taunting Kim with the Little Rocket Man tweets. Good job Trump! You took a shit on the table and then manged to mostly clean it up.

US intelligence believes they've increased fuel production.

U.S. intelligence agencies believe that North Korea has increased its production of fuel for nuclear weapons at multiple secret sites in recent months — and that Kim Jong Un may try to hide those facilities as he seeks more concessions in nuclear talks with the Trump administration, U.S. officials told NBC News.

 

While the North Koreans have stopped missile and nuclear tests, "there's no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles, or that they have stopped their production," said one U.S. official briefed on the latest intelligence. "There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the U.S."

This appears to be a liquid fueled rocket, most likely using hypergolic fuels.  On one hand, hypergolics are generally stable, but they are incredibly nasty to handle or be exposed to.  I'm surprised that they didn't go with a solid fuel rocket instead, as they tend to be able to sit for years and can launch at a moments notice.

Maybe it's cheaper or they can't make solid fuels just yet.
