North Korea recently launched its first spy satellite and released images of U.S. and South Korean military facilities, including the White House and Pentagon.
The satellite photos have not been made public, and experts are speculating on their potential use.
The United States and North Korea have clashed at the United Nations over the satellite launch and its implications for nuclear weapons delivery systems. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO.)

“Remember when you got that toy you always wanted at Xmas and were so excited you wanted to tell everyone about it?” NK News founder Chad O’Carroll said.
“How useful those images are depends on what they want to use them for,” said Dave Schmerler.
“It’s a big leap for them going from zero to something, but until we can see the images they’re collecting, we’re speculating on its use cases,” he added.

“The DPRK has made its motivations clear,” U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield stated.
“The DPRK is unabashedly trying to advance its nuclear weapons delivery systems by testing ballistic missile technology in clear violation of this council’s resolutions.”
“This reckless unlawful behavior threatens all of the DPRK’s neighbors and all member states.”
“One belligerent party, the United States, is threatening us with a nuclear weapon,” North Korean Ambassador Kim Son stated.
“It is legitimate right for the DPRK — as another belligerent party — to develop, test, manufacture and possess weapons systems equivalent to those that the United States already possess and, or (are) developing right now,” he added.
