New reports out of North Korea suggest that nukes are not the only kind of weapons the U.S. has to worry about.
Kim Jong Un has been collecting large amounts of chemical weapons, including sarin gas and VX.
According to the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology, stockpiles of nerve agents are being produced and stored in as many as 11 different facilities in North Korea.
A spokesperson for the Arms Control Association says North Korea could respond to a potential U.S. attack on their country by using chemical weapons, despite the Geneva protocol that bans their use.
Pyongyang officials have denied the regime possesses the chemical weapons since the country began developing them amid rising tensions in 1961.
