Shinzo Abe, Japan’s Prime Minister, has issued a chilling warning Thursday morning, stating that North Korea may be capable of firing chemical filled missiles, of sarin gas, towards Japan.

Abe, who made the statement at a parliamentary panel on national security, said Pyongyang may already be able to shoot missiles with sarin as warheads, the Associated Press reported.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes sarin as a human-made chemical warfare agent classified as a nerve agent. Generally odorless and tasteless, it can cause death in minutes.

Sarin is the same toxin used by Syria to bomb their own people, resulting in the US firing airstrikes and hitting the base firing those bombs.

U.S. researchers said satellite imagery posted online Thursday shows “continued activity” at North Korea’s nuclear test site in the northeast of the country.  The images were posted to the 38 North website, a program of the U.S.-Korea Institute at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md.

The crazy fat kid, Kim Jong-un, is playing with fire, and absolutely should not have chemical or nuclear missiles at his fingertips.
