ABSTRACT
The article reveals that North Korean leaders encourage the country's best engineering minds to focus on developing weapons of mass destruction and missiles. The speed with which North Korea has developed Taepodong-2 alarms both Japan and the U.S. The fact is North Korean engineers managed to build a more advanced version of the Taepodong without benefit of testing in less than 8 years. South Korea also is worried, as evidenced by reports that the Ministry of National Defense might buy SM2 and possibly SM3 missiles from the U.S. for anti-missile defense.
