NORTH Korea is feared to be infiltrating the US Army as propaganda leaflets and CDs were discovered a multiple military bases.
U.S. Forces Korea is warning servicemembers on the peninsula to stay alert to potential insider threats after North Korean propaganda appeared on American bases.
The 8th Army reported that propaganda leaflets were discovered at Seoul’s Yongsan Garrison Thursday, shortly after a North Korean soldier defected across the heavily fortified border just north of the South Korean capital.
In an alert posted later that day on USFK’s Facebook page, officials said a significant number of North Korean propaganda leaflets and CDs had been placed at strategic locations on multiple U.S. military installations in South Korea.
“Given the number of foreign nationals with access to our military installations via employment, sponsorship and partnership programs, the potential for insider threats is always a reality,” the alert said. “It is essential for our personnel to report all [propaganda] and suspicious individuals to the appropriate authorities to help mitigate potential threats.”
Propaganda is used to persuade or influence people’s attitude, beliefs and behaviors and those distributing it seek to disrupt operations and degrade readiness, the alert added.
Washington keeps a garrison of soldiers and weapons constantly in South Korea, with whom they have a military alliance.
US forces have been carrying out major drills in the region this year amid the growing nuclear crisis.
North Korea has tested dozens of missiles this year and detonated its most powerful nuclear weapon ever.
President Trump and Kim have been locked into a fiery war of words as both threatened to destroy the other.
North Korea’s last missile test was on November 28, launching its most advanced weapon ever the Hwasong-15.
On Monday, the White House released its U.S. National Security Strategy that said North Korea is “pursuing chemical and biological weapons which could also be delivered by missile.”
“North Korea—a country that starves its own people—has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that could threaten our homeland,” the document said.
North Korea vehemently denied the report and accused the U.S. of cooking “up untruths as truths” and using biological weapons during the Korean War.
“Properly speaking, it is the U.S. stereotyped method to cook up untruths as truths, stubbornly insisting that black is white and fabricating anything for satisfying their aggressive greed,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency stated. “And the U.S. itself is an empire of evils full of plots, fabrications, lies and deceptions.”
It added, “It is none other than the U.S., chattering on ‘morality’ and ‘civilization,’ the criminal state that massacred the Korean people by bacteriological weapons during the Korean War and inflict sufferings upon the innocent people by continuing even now to openly use the internationally prohibited weapons.”
North Korea is beginning tests on mounting anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles that would strike the U.S., a report said on Wednesday just two days after the White House’s U.S. National Security Strategy stated Kim Jong Un is pursuing chemical and biological weapons.
