    US President Donald Trump said he would not rule out the use of military force against North Korea, as Japan sent its biggest warship since WWII to protect a US supply ship. When asked at during a factory tour before his rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to mark his 100th day in office what his message on North Korea is, Trump told reporters: "You'll soon find out, won't you?" Asked whether that meant military action, Trump said: "You'll soon find out." His comments came as Japan dispatched its biggest warship since World War II to protect a US supply ship, as...

    The Jerusalem Post reports: Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hurt the “dignity of the supreme leadership” of North Korea, state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Saturday. The comment was in reaction to Israeli remarks on how the Jewish State is affected by North Korean tension with the United States. … “The reckless remarks of the Israeli defense minister are sordid and wicked behavior and grave challenge to the DPRK [North Korea],” the North Korean statement read.

    While America’s Christians were celebrating Easter the North Koreans celebrated the “Day of the Sun,” honoring the 105th birthday of Kim Il-sung, the nation’s first communist dictator and “eternal president.” Thousands of soldiers, military vehicles and an array of fake weapons were marching under the careful inspection of current supreme leader Kim Jong-Un, the grandson of Kim Il-sung. Close examination reveals that Kim’s military force may be better suited for propaganda than actual battle. In a blazing display of saber rattling the Hermit Kingdom presented a video of its overrated ballistic missiles that explode on the Launchpad. The video demonstrated...

    Retired CIA Director James Woolsey said Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un "may have more up his sleeve" than firing a nuclear missile at the United States. "It is a little worse than that," Woolsey, 75, a former Navy undersecretary, told Don Lemon on CNN. "They can launch a satellite into orbit. "That's actually easier to do than to hit a target on the other side of the Earth. "If that satellite contains a small nuclear weapon — and it is detonated over some place, say the United States, it can be devastating to the electric grid. "So, we've...

  • You can thank Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton for North Korea's Nukes

    Old article from last year. "North Korea’s boast that it just detonated its first hydrogen bomb met instant doubts from the White House and arms experts. If they’re right, Pyongyang “only” has plain-old atomic bombs. What a . . . relief? But, as one Chinese expert told The Wall Street Journal, the H-bomb claim still shows that tyrant Kim Jong-un is “marching in that direction.” For all this, thank Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. North Korea couldn’t have done it without their gullibility. Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and...

    “We are sending an armada.” Pres. Donald J. Trump’s declaration during a television interview on the Fox Business Channel signaled the deployment of Carrier Strike Group One to the Korean Peninsula in response to North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric and upcoming missile test. The Navy canceled a series of port calls for the strike group earlier this month and diverted the ships to the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against the hermit kingdom. But what’s in the armada?

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday a major conflict with North Korea is possible in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs, but he would prefer a diplomatic outcome to the dispute. "There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely," Trump told Reuters in an Oval Office interview ahead of his 100th day in office on Saturday. Nonetheless, Trump said he wanted to peacefully resolve a crisis that has bedeviled multiple U.S. presidents, a path that he and his administration are emphasizing by preparing a variety of new...
  • This Is the Koryo Burger, the Only Food Item Served on North Korea’s State Airline

    NORTH Korea’s state-run airline serves its passengers only one item of food. The Koryo Burger is always served stone cold — straight from the fridge — on a paper doily with an unidenfitied slice of processed meat in the middle. The bun is stale, there’s a slice of processed cheese, a few wispy slices of shredded cabbage or a single lettuce leaf (but usually not both). Some say the mystery sauce is red, some say it’s brown, but most generally agree it’s too watery to be blood left over from the animal that became the patty. It’s pretty much exactly...

    Senators who were briefed at the White House on Wednesday about the situation with North Korea said they learned “very little” during the all-hands meeting — with some claiming it lacked “even straight answers” about President Trump’s ongoing plans. “There was very little, if anything new,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told The Washington Post. “I remain mystified about why the entire Senate had to be taken over to the White House rather than conducting it here,” he said. One Republican lawmaker, who chose to remain anonymous, claimed they weren’t updated on what the current policy was regarding the Hermit Kingdom...

    The administration of US President Donald Trump is considering a range of military actions against North Korea, says Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz made the remarks on Wednesday night, after attending a "long and detailed" private meeting at the White House, where all 100 members of the Senate were invited to discuss tensions with North Korea. "The military is obviously planning for a number of options, as they should - minimal military action to more significant action," said Cruz, who ran a failed presidential campaign against Trump last year.

    US Defense Watch ^ | April 26, 2017 | Ray Starmann
    Dear General Mattis, I know you’ve been busy sir. Across the globe, our enemies are stacking up against us. The Pentagon is the virtual three alarm fire brigade, attempting to put out every conflagration caused by the Obama administration’s disastrous national security policies. Eight years of worthless, feckless US leadership and budget cuts have severely weakened the US armed forces. While in our history, the US military has been gutted by Congress, then rebuilt, to fight another day, the military has never been a vast social experiment as it is now. This is something that apparently you have not focused...

    The top U.S. military officer in the Pacific said Wednesday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is “clearly in a position to threaten Hawaii today” with a ballistic missile attack and that the Pentagon should consider adding new ballistic missile interceptors and defensive radar there to counter that possibility. Navy Adm. Harry Harris, the chief of U.S. Pacific Command, told the House Armed Services Committee there are already “sufficient” ballistic missile interceptors protecting the United States at Fort Greely in Alaska and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. But he added there is a possibility that not every missile...

    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...

JOHN BATCHELOR: The can has been kicked for so many years, it is difficult to say who started this. Certainly Clinton time, Bush time, Obama time, they did not confront a predator state with nuclear weapons and ambitions to dominate North Asia. China, watch China. President Obama did not watch China very carefully. He turned away from China. He did not confront the Chinese problem with North Korea. President Trump is confronting it. It is not of...

    While the total wipeout depicted in One Second After is probably exaggerated, the effects could knock out our power grid for months, and destroy critical communications and computer systems. As former CIA chief James Woolsey recently said: If you look at the electric grid and what it's susceptible to, we would be moving into a world with no food delivery, no water purification, no banking, no telecommunications, no medicine. All of these things depend on electricity in one way or another. In such a situation, there simply is no way to rule out the possibility that hundreds of millions could...

    United States Ambassador Henry Cooper has warned that North Korea has been working on ways of causing mass blackouts across the US using Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) technology for years and the government has no defense against such an attack. The former advisor to President Ronald Reagan also stated that Kim Jong-un has the capability to shut down the entire North American power grid with devastating consequences. North Korea has been developing ways of triggering an EMP device for "some time", according to Copper, by means of launching one through a missile or triggering it from a satellite.
