Another US adversary is beginning to test the Biden administration.
Construction at North Korea’s nuke testing site has begun for the first time since 2018.

Analysts say recent photos taken from space show new buildings and other signs of work at North Korea’s nuclear testing facility in what they call a worrying sign that the country could be planning to resume testing atomic bombs after having claimed to have destroyed the site in 2018.
The images, taken Friday by the commercial satellite firm Maxar, and the analysis by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at Middlebury Institute of International Studies, show early signs of activity at the nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, said Jeffrey Lewis of the Martin Center, who led the examination.
Lewis called the activities “very preliminary.”
The changes, including what analysts believe is the construction of a new building, are the first signs of work at the site since North Korea theatrically showed its tunnels being blown up on video in May 2018.
Trump’s strength led to North Korea shutting down the nuke site in 2018.
Biden’s weakness has led to North Korea once again becoming emboldened.
