WSJ Offers Inside Look at U.S. Military Preparedness in Secret Bunker Amid Korean Peninsula Tensions

Amidst rising tensions with North Korea, the U.S. military has granted access to a top-secret bunker located beneath a mountain outside Seoul, South Korea. This facility, known as Command Post Tango, is designed to withstand a tactical nuclear strike and serves as a command and control center for U.S. and South Korean forces during exercises and potential conflicts. Recent North Korean military activities, such as supervising mock attacks and building guard posts near the border, have escalated concerns over a potential surprise strike on South Korean territory.

  • The top-secret U.S. military bunker outside Seoul acts as a command center in response to potential North Korean aggression.
  • Command Post Tango can reportedly survive a tactical nuclear strike and coordinates U.S. and South Korean military efforts.
  • Recent North Korean actions, including weapons tests and construction of new guard posts, have heightened security concerns.
  • South Korea has increased the scale of military exercises and defense drills in preparation for a potential attack.
  • North Korea’s saber-rattling has been particularly focused on a group of islands in the Yellow Sea, a historical flashpoint.
  • Residents of Yeonpyeong Island, previously targeted by North Korean artillery, live under the constant threat of attack.
  • The South Korean military conducts practice deployments to the islands to prepare for unexpected assaults.
