    UK Telegraph ^ | February 13, 2017 | Julian Ryall
    The new type of intermediate-range ballistic missile launched by North Korea on Sunday is a "game changer", according to analysts, because it uses a solid fuel engine that makes the weapon more stable and reduces the time required to fuel a missile before launch. The Pukguksong-2 is also road-mobile on tractor-erector-launcher units, analysts point out, all of which means that the weapon is more difficult to detect and neutralise before it is launched.

    North Korea got 2017 off to a menacing start. In his New Year's address, supreme leader Kim Jong Un warned that the nation was in the "final stage" of preparations to test an intercontinental ballistic missile. A day later, President-elect Donald Trump said the North would never develop a nuclear weapon capable of striking the U.S. "It won't happen!" Trump tweeted. Bombast aside, independent arms control experts agree that North Korea is moving rapidly to develop an ICBM. And many suspect it will test a missile capable of reaching the continental U.S. later this year. "They are very far along...

    U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's "clear warning" to North Korea shows he is aware of the urgency of the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program and will not waver from a policy of sanctions against the isolated country, South Korea said on Tuesday. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Sunday his nuclear-capable country was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), raising the prospect of putting parts of the United States in range. Trump dismissed the claim, saying on Twitter: "It won't happen." South Korea's Foreign Ministry said Trump's comment, his first mention of the North Korean...

But he has started to talk about having to be on point all the time on missions to retrieve bodies at night. He says that they can't use any light because it would draw enemy fire. I don't know...

Fuentes posted photos of Marx helping subdue a passenger who had grown agitated and begun attacking the flight crew. The collage showed Marx working with crew to help keep the passenger in his seat. His help appeared to be necessary because, as Fuentes reported, the crew wasn’t properly trained to handle the incident. “On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next...

    Between February and March 2016, Australian and French sailors in the Arabian Sea seized small ships — or dhows — smuggling weapons, most likely to militants in Somalia and Yemen. These caches aboard the dhows included examples of one particularly rare firearm, the North Korean Type 73 machine gun. In November 2016, independent monitoring group Conflict Armament Research released a report detailing the captured weapons and their likely points of origins and destinations. According to the analysis, the shipments showed links between Iran and armed groups Tehran supports in the Gulf of Aden region.

    Japan and South Korea, once bitter enemies, have agreed to their closest military cooperation since the end of World War II. The deal, which has been in the pipeline for five years, will allow both countries to share military intelligence directly without using the US military as an intermediary. Washington, a close ally of both countries, has long encouraged better relations between the two, even though many in South Korea are critical of the pact. A spokesman for China's foreign ministry was critical of the deal, predicting it would increase "insecurity and instability in Northeast Asia."(continued)

    Resurrection power is yours for I have already apportioned it in you the day you received My Spirit ! So go do and declare The Day of The Lord for truly where you are I AM. Galatians 2:19-21 19 For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me....
  • Rare Skull From Korea's Silla Kingdom Reconstructed

    Scientists have studied a rare skeleton from the Silla culture, which ruled over part of the Korean Peninsula from 57 B.C. to A.D. 935. “The skeletons are not preserved well in the soil of Korea,” bioanthropologist Dong Hoon Shin of Seoul National University College of Medicine told Live Science. The skeleton, of a woman in her late 30s, was found in a traditional coffin that had been buried near the historic capital of the Silla Kingdom, Gyeongju. Analysis of her mitochondrial DNA suggests that she belonged to a genetic lineage that is present in East Asia today. Carbon isotopes in...

    | The grave of a woman with a bizarre, long-headed skull has been unearthed in Korea. The woman was part of the ancient Silla culture, which ruled much of the Korean peninsula for nearly a millennium. Unlike some of the deformed, pointy skulls that have been found throughout the world in other ancient t graves, however, it is unlikely that this woman had her head deliberately flattened, the researchers said. The ancient Silla Kingdom reigned over part of the Korean Peninsula from 57 B.C. to A.D. 935, making it one of the longest-ruling royal dynasties. Many of Korea's modern-day cultural...

    I just watched the annual National Memorial Day Concert broadcast on PBS. As always, moving and, at times, up lifting. Each war from today's Iraq and Afghanistan back to WW2 were honored with profiles of those who served. One glaring exception : Korea. Anyone know if there is a good reason for this? Some military protocol I missed?

    Security researchers have tied the recent spate of digital breaches on Asian banks to North Korea, in what they say appears to be the first known case of a nation using digital attacks for financial gain. In three recent attacks on banks, researchers working for the digital security firm Symantec said, the thieves deployed a rare piece of code that had been seen in only two previous cases: the hacking attack at Sony Pictures in December 2014 and attacks on banks and media companies in South Korea in 2013. Government officials in the United States and South Korea have blamed...

    After a year in the North Korean prison, Kenneth Bae softened toward his guards. “There were many small conversations like, 'How much do you make in the United States? What's it like to live in the U.S.?” Bae told KUOW’s Kim Malcolm. “Do people really have houses and cars?” When he told his captors about life in America, the guards were shocked. “They said, ‘No way. No way most common people can live like that,’” he said. “They were told that 1 percent of people in the United States have everything, and the rest of them are living in poverty....

    In an interview on Tuesday with news agency Reuters at Trump Tower, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump revealed he is willing to “open talks” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. His goal would be to undo the nuclear weapons program in Pyongyang, as well as talk some sense into the isolationist state about their human rights atrocities. Giving some insight into how he would do it, Trump reveals he would start with China. “I would put a lot of pressure on China because economically we have tremendous power over China,” Trump said, mentioning how China is Pyongyang’s only major diplomatic...
