    When 22-year-old American student Otto Warmbier was released from North Korean captivity last week after being held as a war criminal for 17-months, his family praised President Trump for getting him out. "When Otto was first taken we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release. We did so without result," Otto's father, Fred Warmbier, said during a press conference in Ohio last week. "Earlier this year, Cindy and I decided the time for strategic patience was over. It is my understanding that Ambassador Yun and his team, at the...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Yonhap) South Korea and the US are seeking to establish a special forces team to take out Pyongyang’s leadership in the event of a contingency. Scheduled to be created by the end of this year, the unit will be tasked with eliminating Kim and paralyzing the North’s command and control system. “Kim is so engrossed with collecting information about the ‘decapitation operation’ through his intelligence agency,” said Lee, referring to the title of the clandenstie operation targeting Kim. Despite economic hardship in the country, North Korea appears to have inched closer to securing key technology...

    Chinese websites are censoring “Kim Fatty the Third,” a nickname widely used to disparage North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, after officials from his country reportedly conveyed their displeasure in a meeting with their Chinese counterparts. Searches for the Chinese words “Jin San Pang” on the search engine Baidu and microblogging platform Weibo returned no results this week.

    Otto Warmbier died today. Otto Warmbier was murdered by North Korea and by its brutal regime, led by the despotic maniac Kim Jong-un. The 23 year old University of Virginia student, who was arrested and imprisoned in North Korea 17 months ago for stealing a poster, had been released by the neo-Stalinist regime last week and flown to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he passed away today at 2:20 PM after reportedly languishing in a coma for a year. While preparing to depart North Korea on January 2, 2016, Warmbier was detained after stealing a North Korean propaganda...

    Former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman has gifted North Korea's totalitarian leader some light reading: "Trump: The Art of the Deal." Rodman brought a copy of President Donald Trump's book for Kim Jong Un during his latest visit to the hermetic nation. Rodman on Thursday presented the book to North Korea's sports minister, Kim Il Guk, according to The Associated Press. The AP has a bureau in the country and released photographs from the visit. Among other gifts Rodman presented were a "Where's Waldo?" book – which The Washington Post says was likely a gift for Kim Jong Un's daughter...

    University of Virginia student, Otto Warmbier, a prisoner for the last 17 months in the Orwellian hell hole, North Korea, is returning home to the United States…in a coma that he has been in for a year. Warmbier, 23, was convicted of conducting “hostile acts against the DPRK.” The so-called hostile act against North Korea committed by college student Warmbier, (who was travelling with a tour group called Young Pioneer Tours), was purloining a propaganda poster off the wall of the Yanggakdo Hotel in Pyongyang. Stealing or harming a poster or other items with the name or image of one...

    Dennis Rodman lands in North Korea on June 13, the same day that the North Koreans suddenly free American college student Otto Warmbier. Coincidence? The State Department says so. A spokesman said that Rodman had nothing to do with Warmbier’s release. There’s no evidence that Rodman helped secure the release of Warmbier, a University of Virginia college student sentenced in 2016 to hard labor for ripping down a propaganda poster. The Secretary of State’s initial statement on Warmbier’s release made no mention of Rodman. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced June 13 that Warmbier was being released. Sadly, though,...

    "Biochemical plot" Norks accuse CIA of assassinating Kim Jong Un at some point in the future No one knows quite what to make of this. Maybe the Norks have gotten wind of an actual, honest-to-goodness CIA plot. Perhaps someone in the North Korean government wants Kim Jong Un gone, so they’re offering the CIA helpful suggestions about how to do the deed. It’s also possible that they finally got around to screening “The Interview” and they’re under the mistaken impression that it’s documentary. All we really know is that Pyongyang is accusing the CIA of planning the assassination of Kim...

    Kim Jong-Un's army readied for war as they fired rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships during North Korea's 'largest ever' live-fire artillery drills on Tuesday. Hundreds of tanks were lined up along the eastern coastal town of Wonsan in a show of military strength to celebrate 85 years since the North Korean army was created. Kim saluted the military as he watched the exercises on Tuesday, which involved the firing of more than 300 large-calibre artillery pieces and included submarine torpedo-attacks. Just one day later, South Korea conducted joint military live-fire drills with the US at Seungjin fire training...

    Rumblings Last week, Kim Jong Un threatened to annihilate parts of the United States in what Pyongyang termed “a super-mighty pre-emptive strike.” Then we got a slew of reports indicating that a U.S. citizen had been detained by the North Korean government. Then, over the weekend, the Norks released a statement indicating they were preparing to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier conducting maneuvers in the region. Now, as tensions rise, everyone is waiting for the United States response. So far, we’ve heard nothing concrete.

    University of Virginia student, Otto Warmbier, is a prisoner somewhere in the Orwellian hell hole known as North Korea. Otto Warmbier may be suffering a fate tantamount to an inmate of Dachau. At this very moment, Otto Warmbier may be starving, performing slave labor, being beaten or in fact, he may very well be dead. The tragic fate of Otto Warmbier, is the tragic fate of the millions of North Koreans living in the Gulag Archipelago of Kim Jong-un’s totalitarian nightmare world. Warmbier, 23, was convicted of conducting “hostile acts against the DPRK”. Mr. Warmbier was not an intelligence officer...

    Kim Jong-un has threatened the US with a 'super-mighty preemptive strike' and warned America: 'Don't mess with us'. State controlled media claimed North Korea could 'immediately wipe out the US mainland' and reduce its enemies 'to ashes'. The latest threat from Pyongyang comes amid mounting tensions between North Korea and America and after China moved 150,000 troops to its border with the secretive state. This morning it emerged that Vladimir Putin is also reinforcing his border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment.

    A question that is just as important is whether assassinating Kim or the generals in charge of North Korea’s nuclear program, ballistic missile program, military or intelligence services would be a good policy. We tend to believe that if we just took out the top, bad guy in the regime, all of the other bad guys in that regime will be scared straight, change their behavior and suddenly turn their governments into bastions of human rights and democracy. We’ve had experience with his belief before: several days prior to major military operations in Iraq, Washington lobbed cruise missiles at Saddam...
