Special ops troops spy on Nork tunnel systems

Daily Caller:
U.S. Army Gen. Neil Tolley, commander of U.S. Special Operations Forces in South Korea, told an audience in Tampa that U.S. and South Korean forces have been sent into North Korea to spy on the communist country’s vast collection of underground tunnels and military installations.
The extraordinary admission, which went unreported by U.S. media, came on May 22 during the Special Operations Forces Industry Conference. Tolley said his command has identified 20 airfields and 180 munitions factories that are partially underground, along with thousands of subterranean artillery positions.
“The entire tunnel infrastructure is hidden from our satellites,” Tolley added, according a report published Monday by The Diplomat, a Japan-based foreign affairs magazine.
“So we send ROK [Republic of Korea] soldiers and U.S. soldiers to the North to do special reconnaissance.”
North Korea, he said, has dug tunnels underneath the Demilitarized Zone separating it from the South. “There were four tunnels under the DMZ,” Tolley observed, according to a Tampa Tribune blogger. “Those are the ones we know about.”
Tolley’s commandos, he said, parachute into North Korea to watch the tunnels and gather intelligence, carrying the bare minimum of supplies to avoid detection.

This is a report that will amp up the paranoia levels in the hermit kingdom.  It sounds credible.

We have heard stories for years about North Korea's elaborate tunnel system for artillery to destroy Seoul which is very near the DMZ.  We also know their nukes are in underground facilities as are many of their missiles.  Locating those facilities and getting the information needed to hit them with bunker busters is critical to defending South Korea and stopping a missile attack on the US and Japan.
