  • Trump says newspaper misquoted him on Kim Jung Un, points to audio tape

    President Trump on Sunday accused The Wall Street Journal of “falsely” reporting him saying he has a “good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and publishing so-called fake news because the newspaper wanted a big story. “The Wall Street Journal stated falsely that I said to them ‘I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un’ (of N. Korea). Obviously I didn’t say that. I said ‘I’d have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un,’ a big difference. Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters,” Trump said over two tweets. “And they knew exactly what I said and...
  • Will Nuclear North Korea Survive 2018?

    01/04/2018 5:15:45 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | January 4, 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    For good or evil, we may see radical changes in North Korea in 2018. The beefed-up United Nations sanctions by midyear could lead to widespread North Korean hunger, as well as the virtual end of the country's industry and transportation. In the past, the West had called off such existential sanctions and rushed in cash and humanitarian aid on news of growing starvation. Would it now if the bleak alternative was a lunatic's nuclear missile possibly striking San Diego or Seattle? To survive an unending trade embargo -- and perhaps to avoid a coup -- Kim Jong Un would likely...

    U.S. President Donald Trump was unfazed on Tuesday by North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns threat that he has a nuclear launch button on his desk. North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times. Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works! tweeted Trump. .....

    Kim Jong-un says he has a nuclear launch button on his desk in threat to America KIM Jong-un has brought in the new year with an alarming escalation in his threats against the rest of the world. During a televised New Years Day speech, the dictator said the US would never be able to start a war with the rogue nation after it had developed the ability to hit all of the American mainland with its nuclear weapons. The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is...

    Chinas Communist Party adopted a secret plan in September to bolster the North Korean government with increased aid and military support, including new missiles, if Pyongyang halts further nuclear tests, according to an internal party document. The document, labeled top secret and dated Sept. 15 just 12 days after North Koreas latest underground nuclear blast outlines Chinas plan for dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue. It states China will allow North Korea to keep its current arsenal of nuclear weapons, contrary to Beijings public stance that it seeks a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. Chinese leaders also agreed to...

    Kim Jong-un is entitled to feel pretty good about his skill in playing Washington and the West. Theres a history of North Korea getting what it wants and not paying anything for it. A succession of American presidents, Republican and Democrat, have been eager to play the mark. Donald Trump seems to be cut from different cloth, but its early and too soon to determine the strength of his kidney. But the world can hope. Presidents before him earned their presidential chops dealing with diplomats, senators and assorted supplicants with good manners and proper deference, and the Donald absorbed the...

    North Korea has described the latest UN sanctions imposed on the country as an "act of war". The foreign ministry said the measures were tantamount to a total economic blockade, the KCNA news agency reported. It added that strengthening North Korea's deterrence was the only way to frustrate the U.S. The UN Security Council imposed the new sanctions in response to Pyongyang's latest ballistic missile tests.......

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) Storm clouds are gathering over the Korean Peninsula, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declared Friday. And as diplomats try to resolve the nuclear standoff, he told soldiers that the U.S. military must do its part by being ready for war. Without forecasting a conflict, Mattis emphasized that diplomacy stands the best chance of preventing a war if Americas words are backed up by strong and prepared armed forces. My fine young soldiers, the only way our diplomats can speak with authority and be believed is if youre ready to go, Mattis told several dozen soldiers and...

    The US is preparing plans to deliver a bloody nose attack against North Korea to knock out its nuclear weapons program. The White House has dramatically ramped up its military plans amid fears that diplomacy wont thwart North Korean despot Kim Jong Un from making good on his threats, sources told the UKs Telegraph. One option is destroying a launch site before the rogue regime uses it for a new missile test, while another is targeting weapons stockpiles, according to the news outlet. The Trump administration hopes that pre-emptive action would show the trigger-happy dictator that the United States is...

    America is drawing up plans for a bloody nose military attack on North Korea to stop its nuclear weapons programme, The Telegraph understands. The White House has dramatically stepped up preparation for a military solution in recent months amid fears diplomacy is not working, well-placed sources said. One option is destroying a launch site before it is used by the regime for a new missile test. Stockpiles of weapons could also be targeted. The hope is that military force would show Kim Jong-un that America is serious about stopping further nuclear development and trigger negotiations. Three sources - two former...

    -snip- As these stories show and as I have seen during my 16 visits to North Korea in the past decade hunger remains a way of life there. Forty-one percent of North Koreans, about 10.5 million people, are undernourished, and 28 percent of children under 5 years old have stunted growth. When my 4-year-old daughter visited Pyongyang in 2013, she, all of three feet, towered over children twice her age. The hunger is devastating. And its our fault. Led by the United States, the international community is crippling North Koreas economy. In August and September, the United Nations...

    North Korea suggests satellite launch North Korea's state-run media has argued that every country has the right to develop its space program. Sources say it could be an indication that the country is preparing for a long-range ballistic missile launch. The newspaper of the ruling Workers' Party, Rodong Sinmun, issued a commentary on Monday saying that violating the right to peaceful development and use of space runs counter to international law. Back in February, the media reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had set launching a stationary satellite as an immediate goal of the country's space development. North...

    Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump discussed the crisis over North Korea's nuclear program in a phone call Thursday, in which the US president took the unusual step of thanking his Russian counterpart for praising America's economy. The two heads of state discussed "the situation in several crisis zones, with a focus on solving the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula," the Kremlin said in a statement, without elaborating. The White House said the two "discussed working together to resolve the very dangerous situation in North Korea."

We can talk about whether it's going to be a square table or a round table, if that's what you're excited about. But can we at least sit down and see each other face-to-face. And then we can begin to lay out a map, a roadmap, of what we might be willing to work towards."

    President Trump's administration is apparently considering whether it's safe for U.S. athletes to compete at the February 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Nikki Haley, America's ambassador to the United Nations said Thursday that threats linked to the standoff between Washington and Pyongyang over Kim Jong Un's development of intercontinental ballistic missiles made American participation "an open question." Concern is appreciated, but the threat is unfounded. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says "no official decision has been made." Sanders then lent some hope on Thursday that America would participate, but we worry that further North Korean missile...

    Ex-NATO commander: North Korea likely getting help with nukes, rockets from China or Russia Retired Adm. James Stavridis, a former NATO supreme allied commander, in an interview on Sunday said North Korea is likely receiving outside help from allies like China, Russia or Iran as it races to develop its weapons arsenal. Youve got to think that at least part of it is coming from either China or Russia and I have no evidence of that, but the idea that [North Korean leader Kim Jong Un] would simply be developing this on an indigenous basis within his own population of...

    National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday that the potential of war with North Korea is "increasing every day" after the nation's latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). "I think it's increasing every day" McMaster told Fox News host Bret Baier at the Reagan National Defense Forum, when asked if this week's missile launch heightened the possibility of war with the U.S. McMaster pointed to the latest North Korean missile launch, which flew higher than any of its previous long-range weapons, as posing an increased threat to the U.S. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been working...

    Kim Jong-Un fired off another rocket last night. It got close to Japan, supposedly. Friends, neighbors, and even political rivals have called me, terrified about where this military build-up is headed. Trump has mobilized a greater show of force in the Pacific rim. Hawaii is under red alert, prepared for a nuclear attack at any moment. But as for me, guess what? I dont care. I may live on the Western rim, but I have survived along the San Andreas Fault all my life, and despite earthquakes, terrors, wars, rumors of wars (and even the LA riots), I am not...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia accused the United States on Thursday of trying to provoke North Korean leader Kim Jong Un into flying off the handle over his missile program to hand Washington a pretext to destroy his country. In some of his most robust comments on the subject to date, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also flatly rejected a U.S. call to cut ties with Pyongyang over its nuclear and ballistic missile program and said U.S. policy towards North Korea was deeply flawed. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have flared after North Korea said it had successfully tested a new...
