North Korea Now Putting Anthrax On Missiles

Vice NewsAs tensions continue to rise on the Korean peninsula, North Korea has begun to experiment with loading anthrax onto intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reports.

According to an unidentified South Korean source, the rogue nation is currently conducting heat and pressure tests to see whether anthrax can survive the extreme temperatures the bacteria would face during a missile’s reentry into the atmosphere. Compared to similar biological agents, anthrax is particularly dangerous—aside from being deadly, it’s difficult to see, smell, taste, or otherwise detect, according to the CDC.

Anthrax missiles? I don’t like the sound of that. Such a North Korea move to anthrax your missiles in 2017. Not to downplay it because it sounds terrible, gives you diarrhea and, ya know, kills you, but so damn North Korea to lace your missiles with the bio scare of the early 2000s. I hadn’t heard the word anthrax in 15 years but of course Kim Jong Un comes out of the clouds (literally) with anthrax missiles. What an asshole. I’m gonna be real pissed if we get anthrax missile’d in New York. A nuke is one thing. Immediate incineration, never know what happened. Anthrax? Anthrax sounds awful.
