US 'Maximum Pressure' N. Korea Policy Yielded Mixed Results in 2017

"Caught RED HANDED - very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea", Trump said on Twitter.

He started his career as a civilian aeronautics technician, but now wears the uniform of a military general at the Munitions Industry Department, according to experts and the South Korean government.

A survey of Japanese citizens and Americans across the two countries show over 40 percent of respondents oppose US military action on North Korea.

South Korean newspapers have reported that their neighbor to the north has completed development of a new reconnaissance satellite, the first that will enable North Korea to transmit data to Earth.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced new sanctions on two individuals within the North Korean government, both of whom are reportedly prominent figures within Kim Jong Un's ballistic weapons development program.

The KCNA report boasted that North Korea now enjoyed new "status" as a "world-class nuclear power".

Just before Christmas, Legal Insurrection noted reports that North Korea was loading potentially deadly anthrax bacteria onto intercontinental ballistic missiles as part of a biological weapons test program.

"This resolution has appropriately strengthened sanctions on North Korea", stated Hua Chunying, a spokeswomen for the Foreign Ministry of Mainland China.

North Korea's nuclear ambitions have been one of the UN's most pressing concerns this year.

Japan's Nihon Keizai said Thursday that Kim's less frequent public appearances may be due to nervousness over a possible "decapitation plan" to take out the North's leadership by the South Korea-US joint forces.

"The larger question is whether Trump sees sanctions as a prelude to negotiations - the only way they make any sense - or as an effort to get Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear program while getting nothing in return", Hartung said.

"The U.S. persistent moves against the DPRK in political, economic, military, diplomatic and all other fields till the end of this year could not stop even a moment the advance of the DPRK confident in the victory of its cause", the KCNA report said.

The latest launch of the Hwasong-15 ICBM, theoretically capable of hitting all major United States cities, further heightened global alarm over the rapid advance in North Korea's weapons technology, which has made significant progress since Kim took power in 2011.
