Tech Insider reports that “North Korea’s conventional military of aging Soviet jets and tanks can’t compete against the high-tech military of the US, but its capabilities in cyber warfare keep on getting better, according to a top US Army general.”  

“‘This is an area of growth,’ Gen. Vincent Brooks told Senate leaders last month. ‘While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized.'”  

“Brooks was speaking before the Senate Armed Services Committee for a hearing regarding his nomination to take over all forces in South Korea. The 57-year-old general took over that post late last month.”
