Michael Elleman quotes

Aug 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

These are being called successful tests, but we don't know how successful they were. We don't know if it broke up or not, and we don't know about the accuracy of the system.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - ICBM

In short, a reasonable conclusion based on the video evidence is that the Hwasong-14 reentry vehicle did not survive during hits second test. If this assessment accurately reflects reality, North Korea's engineers have yet to master reentry technologies and more work remains before Kim Jong Un has an ICBM capable of striking the American mainland.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - ICBM

If the bomb itself were exposed to these very severe conditions, it would be torn apart. In short, if the reentry vehicle breaks up, the bomb is not going to be useful – and it's not going to detonate.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - ICBM

Aug 01 2017 - ICBM

My guess is they need to do another handful of tests [on the ICBM]. An early deployment next year is possible.feedback

Jul 08 2017

They've had these designs for a long time, and they've probably been doing exercises around these engines for 15 years. All that work was done, and all [that] was left to do was the ground testing and flight testing with these different designs. It is what has allowed them to rapidly build up and try all these things over the past few years.feedback

Jul 08 2017

They are serious about trying to create a capability that could threaten the United States.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - North Korea

It would mean that North Korea had a wider procurement network in the former Soviet Union than we had thought. My first question would be, What else have they got?feedback

Apr 15 2017

This could signal some confusion in terms of where they want to go with their long-range systems. Until they've fixed the Musudan, they're not going to get anywhere.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - THAAD

I would be disappointed to learn that four attacking missiles would overwhelm THAAD.feedback

Feb 09 2016 - Sanctions
