I Feel Sick, Because The U.S. Is On The Verge Of Making An Extremely Costly Mistake

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

All day long I have just felt sick.  Right at this moment, we are closer to war with North Korea than we have been at any point since the Korean War ended in 1953.  If Donald Trump decides to launch a military strike against North Korea’s nuclear facilities, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic.  The North Koreans have already promised to launch nukes at South Korea and at U.S. military bases in the region in return, and they also have vast stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons that they could use as well.  To get an idea of the chaos that just a handful of North Korean agents armed with biological weapons could unleash inside the United States, just see this article.  A military strike on North Korea could be the spark that sets off a global war in which millions of people die, and so we need to do all that we can to prevent this from happening.  My hope is that if people make enough noise that Trump will back down and decide not to attack.

Earlier today, I was sent the following piece of intel.  I was told that I could share it with all of my readers as long as I kept the name of the individual that sent it to me out of it.  According to this source, it certainly looks as though an attack is being prepared…

An O-5 silver maple leaf Air Force puke says the bomb buses in Guam are maximum loaded, fully fueled and reserves are topped off.  ‎ Reserves are only topped off just before the buses go airborne.

Kunsan has everything pointed north and ALL gates are closed…no traffic in or out.

7 air wings have been moved into the area and an augmented Carl Vinson CVN-70 (not alone) (per CMC x 2  and an O-5) has also moved into the area.

An O-5 barker and an O-6 Marine says all Easter leave has been cancelled with ALL‎ loaded up, geared up and warming up in several theaters.

Castle is locked and loaded.

Seoul is moving essential government and military personnel, as is true for U.S. Command Components and Personnel located at Yongsan‎, further south to Daegu.

AND…Red Cloud is ready to go on the war path with nobody sleeping in the wigwams, all the arrows have been taken from the box.

For those that don’t know, “Kunsan” refers to a U.S. Air Force base that is located at Gunsan Airport on the west coast of the Korean peninsula.

But just because these preparations are being made does not mean that a strike will actually happen.  In fact, there are some signs that indicate that we will not see a U.S. attack over the next several days.

For one thing, Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to be in South Korea on Sunday and Monday.  So it would seem that it would be quite unlikely that anything would happen during that time.

In addition, Fox News is reporting that the Trump administration has come to the conclusion that military force should not be used against North Korea…

But a U.S. military official, who requested anonymity to discuss planning, said the U.S. doesn’t intend to use military force against North Korea in response to either a nuclear test or a missile launch. The official said plans could change in the unlikely event a North Korean missile targets South Korea, Japan or U.S. territory.

But of course things seem to shift hour to hour with the Trump administration.  On Thursday, NBC News was reporting that the U.S. military was poised “to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea” if it looked like the North Koreans were about to conduct a nuclear weapons test…

The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

North Korea has warned that a “big event” is near, and U.S. officials say signs point to a nuclear test that could come as early as this weekend.

So I don’t know what is going to happen.  But without a doubt we are very close to war with North Korea at this moment, and I am going to join with millions of others to do whatever we can to prevent that from happening.

A war with North Korea would be far different from the wars that the U.S. military has been fighting in the Middle East.  An ideology known as “Juche” is essentially the national religion of North Korea.  In Juche, the people are put at the center of everything, and “the leader” is considered to be at the center of the people.  In other words, “the leader” is almost put at the level of a deity.

It is a very sick and twisted philosophy, but here in the western world we need to understand that when we openly talk about killing Kim Jong-Un on television and on the Internet, we are essentially threatening to kill their “god”.

And the reason that is a problem is because Kim Jong-Un is surrounded by throngs of brainwashed supporters that will carry out any order that he gives them.

Here in the western world, we consider it to be highly immoral to use chemical and biological weapons against innocent civilian populations, but the North Koreans do not share those moral values.

The North Koreans consider the United States to be the great force for evil in the world, and if they feel like their way of life is being threatened by the U.S. they will not hesitate to use those sorts of weapons.

And of course they are constantly threatening to use nuclear weapons against us.  Just today I saw a report that talked about how the North Koreans are threatening to unleash “nuclear thunderbolts”, and in another report the North Koreans were quoted as saying they would “ruthlessly ravage” the United States if they are attacked…

North Korea upped its warmongering with Donald Trump today in a series of menacing boasts threatening to ‘ravage’ US troops amid fears the two countries are heading for war.

The secretive state vowed to ‘pulverize’ US bases and South Korean capital Seoul if it was threatened by the US military, which is carrying out drills on the Korean peninsula. A US aircraft carrier group is steaming towards the region.

It claimed it would ‘ruthlessly ravage’ the US if Washington attacked.

North Korea is one of the most wicked nations on the entire planet, and I would certainly greatly rejoice if their government were to fall.

But I don’t see any way that a military strike on North Korea would be successful.

If the North Koreans were able to fire even a single nuclear or chemical warhead at a major city such as Seoul or Tokyo it would be the worst foreign policy disaster in the history of the United States.  The North Koreans would certainly be blamed, but the Trump administration would also be blamed for conducting such a reckless attack in the first place.  Our relationships with our allies in the region would be permanently destroyed, and this would benefit China greatly.

Without using nukes in an overwhelming first strike (which would be unthinkable), I don’t believe that there is any possible way that we could take out all of North Korea’s nukes before they had a chance to at least fire some of them off.

And if North Korea did nuke Seoul or Tokyo or any U.S. military bases in the region, we would almost be forced to respond with nukes of our own, and that would have to be followed up by a massive ground invasion to topple the regime.

So if Donald Trump is reading this, for the good of humanity I would like to strongly urge him not to conduct a military strike on North Korea at this time.  The risk is just way too great, and if things go wrong we could easily be looking at a scenario in which millions of people end up dead.

      Why on earth didn’t we eliminate Kim Jong-un with our Special Forces years ago? Oops, My bad, Obama was too busy checking the direction of the wind for his next golf shot.

      • Like the guy above, you’re right, and you’re equally wrong. You avoid also mentioning George Bush who stupidly thought Saddam Hussein was a far more grave threat to the US than Kim Jung-il, never mind that Kim was lobbing missiles at Hawaii, and Saddam had never done anything against the US directly. Georgie Boy was smart enough to put NK on his axis of evil but dumb enough to expand vast sums going after a despot who was very little trouble to us and leaving one in place who was clearly developing nuclear arms and routinely sending missiles our way!

        Stupid is as stupid does, and both parties have engaged in monumental amounts of stupid in the name of serving their corporate owners.

  • R.C. Gerber

    But, if Kim Jong Un continues with his bellicose rhetoric, a confrontation would eventually happen anyway because N. Korea’s plan is to have one Korea, with the north segment in charge. So, if we take away his toys then he won’t have anything to play with.

    • Dude…Please research the history of Korea…You will be SHOCKED…Its nothing what the lamestream Media says…

  • ultraman

    Hope I’m way wrong & this can just be taken as a “thriller novel”. A deal was made at dinner this week between Trump & China Pres…..with SK & Japan having been notified – even though SK not too happy.

    China ( troops ? ) & U.S. ( missiles galore ? ) both attack NK somehow, although possibly in a way that it “appears” to not be coordinated. In the end, China ends up getting NK…..gains coastline & keeps potential refugees in NK. In return U.S. gets some type of secret “prizes” ( probably economic ) from China.

    For SK ( & Japan ), & all, the NK nuke threat has been eliminated.

    And surely the whole thing was somewhat forced down the throats of SK & Japan….for they really don’t like the “taste” of future China assurances.

    This also ends up going from novel to blockbuster movie: THE DEEP STATE COMES TO TOWN.

  • William Lutz

    I really hope WWIII comes.

  • William Lutz

    It’s about time mankind starts paying for the decades worth of wrongdoings and sins. WWIII would be a perfect opportunity for that. We don’t deserve forgiveness and we deserve all the chaos that’s about to come.

    • Good idea. Let’s kill ourselves. That’ll solve the world’s problems. Can we start with you? I wanna go last. I think I deserve less chaos than you … if for no other reason than that I do not suicidally wish chaos on my fellow mankind. Don’t even really relish you getting blown up; but if it has to be, according to you, I’m one who always asks whenever I read about a suicide killer, “Why did he start with the wrong person? If he was going to kill himself in the end anyway, he could have spared the world a lot of grief if he just started out with his ultimate objective.”

        I tell people all the time its like that movie and others where the disaster at hand is playing out on tv’s in store windows and living rooms, and people just walk by or sweep oblivious. Just yesterday I was marveling at how life was going on so calmly, like the cabin of an airliner 5 feet from slamming into the mountainside. Great ending shot in TDA, where Robards is kneeling in the wreckage, powerful stuff.

      • GSOB

        A North Korean nuclear bomb dropped on Seoul or Tokyo would inflict enormous devastation, killing or injuring an estimated two million people in each city, not to mention radioactivity that would last for decades.

  • Giant Load of BS…

    Its the Americans who destroyed Korea and Installed a Puppet regime of the exact people mostly of elites, landlords, japanese whom America promised to remove.

    The whole Korean War happened due to Koreans Protesting against American led Regime and Massacre of over 60,000 Koreans in Jeju Island by the American led military.

    Koreans have highest IQ in the world, they are not stupid if anything, Americans like you are…who make sure Americans get brainwashed.

    Why don’t people here revisit history of Korea and see who the real villain is …North Koreans are nothing but the rebels who rejected American Puppet regime

            The concepts of elimination of government and the capitalist society are beyond your utterly pitiful comprehension.

    • Really? Because the most American-influence part of Korea (South Korea) — the part that lives under the “puppet regime” — has been doing wonderfully well for a very long time, and is enjoying a high standard of living. Meanwhile, North Korea, which the US has left alone, has survived (but nothing more) under one tinpot dictator after another — ruthless people who strap their own family to cannons and blow holes through them and then clap gleefully with their tiny hands as they hear the news while eating caviar on a hill above the starving masses. But, oh, let’s pretend that surreal scene is not real. Let’s believe, instead, in your imaginary scenario where North Koreans, who have remained isolated from the American puppet regime, are living a life of high standards and great personal safety. (Of course, if I wrote this in North Korea, I’d be dead.)

    I hope WW3 doesn’t start this weekend, but it really doesn’t matter.
    With the middle east dissolving into a further mess now including Russia, China gaining on the world in every category, 50 years of unchecked immigration now changing the USA and Europe forever and debtloads of trillions on the USA and world that will crash world economies t some point making the great depression a walk in the park; the next 50 years are going to be bad or really bad in some or many ways.
    I was hoping Trump would be 4 or 8 years of keeping those times at bay, but looks like he will usher them in and you can thank many govt officials for the past 59 years for getting us here. For instance, Ted Kennedy and jhis buddies for 50 years of unchecked immigration, Bill Clinton for north korea’s nukes, bush jr for making the middle east a mess and Obama for compounding the problem and allowing Russia to gain control of Syria.
    My suggestion is to take one night off every week and do something you enjoy because the world literally may change overnite now and if you had been planning on taking a vacation, I’d take it while you still can.

    • It’s a good comment, except that it exemplifies the reason we have these problems. You left out George HW Bush, who kept Saddam in place, George W. Bush who took us into a war in Iraq years later that became exactly the quagmire he promised it wouldn’t be, and Ronald Reagan who armed and trained the Taliban to fight Russia. Until we stop playing the stupid “I’m a Republican” or “I’m a Democrat” game and recognize that both parties are Frick and Frack, both parties are globalist, both parties serve corporations and not people, and both parties have always found a good war to support, we will never stop doing what we’ve been doing. We’ll just keep trading which side gets to hold the reins while we storm off on our next grand obsession.

      “…but it really doesn’t matter…”

      Well, it does matter – but can’t be changed as the Law of Karma is set in stone whether at the personal, national or global level (I’ve heard that very, very occasionally, an act of ‘Grace’ may alleviate Karma – but I don’t know much about that)

      So we’re due for ‘The Fourth Turning’ on steroids, probably globally.

      At some stage we (humanity) will come to understand that every thought, word & deed has its consequence, now or later – and change our behavior.

      Until then, what goes around comes around. Always.

  • Guest

    1 Thess 5:3 Have we been deceived into a false sense of Peace & safety? We saw Obama provoking tensions with Russia/ China, to provoke an attack. Than after the election, everyone sighed a breath of relief that we didn’t get Hillary, for a moment it seemed we were in a safer position, I had a sense that Trump, was not to be trusted. He might have good intentions, he is not Reagan, & we are not in a position of strength,or respect that we once held. Will Trumps actions to be the catalyst to bring Gods wrath upon America? Whatever is coming on the horizon is not good, not good at all.

  • Carl

    Did MS get sick when he heard the reports of trump bombing syria the other day? Or is he like most humans and only gets that sick feeling when he is concerned that some other country may decide to finally strike our own country? Why are we all so self serving? Caring little about what happens in other countries but when we feel threatened suddenly it’s a different story.

    North Korea treats it’s people terribly. Why isn’t MS pleased that this threat may be taken out as they say? Is the US only capable of bullying countries that they know can’t fight back? Answer: yes we are.

    We should all feel sick to know that there has never been a sitting president in the USA that has NOT been involved in some type of war. There has never been a president who has served their 4 year term with peace only. Think about that.

    • Vlad TheSkewerer

      There was….uh….uhh…uh……nope, “Indian wars”…uh…damn…

    • You’re right. America’s foreign policy — Trump’s included — is sick to its very core. We’ve let the corporatocracy use our military to rape the world for its own narrow gains. Regime change in the name of democracy has been an utter failure at bringing democracy anywhere. We have countless times raised up despots to act against our enemies (Saddam Hussein comes to mind) and trained terrorists to make life tough for our enemies (the Taliban fighting against Russia come to mind), all making the world a far more dangerous place. The Neocons and other warmongers are IDIOTS. We have created power vacuums that always fill in with worse characters, and our regime-change efforts are almost always carried out against dictators (like Assad) who pose no threat to the US at all.

      North Korea is a different situation. NK has routinely and loudly threatened the US for years. It has fired unarmed missiles at Hawaii and Japan, directing them just off course enough to avoid war, but clearly demonstrating their ability to hit those islands if they wish. It is run by a maniacal narcissist who laughs at the thought of strapping his uncle to a cannon and turning him into hamburger.

      We have allowed NK to gain nuclear arms by doing NOTHING of significance to stop that from happening. The longer we have dithered in fear over what it might do, the more formidable world-withering power has become. And all that power now sits under the finger of a solitary man who who claps his baby hands every time he sees a pretty missile launch and who has shown he would kill his own mother if it were necessary to keep himself in power and who worships himself as a demigod and expects everyone else to do the same.

      It is the kind of hand-wringing seen in this article that has gotten us exactly where we are right now. We should have taken bold action twenty years ago when Clinton tried sanctions and bribes and found they didn’t work. The day we put an end to those failed policies, is the day we should have given a short ultimatum. “Disarm this month, or we’ll do it for you next month.”

      Cowards create the worst evils in this world by allowing evil maniacs to become strong. (Look at the ancient Israelite kings who feared their enemies and lost their kingdom because of it.) We have dithered far too long. So, yes, the situation is now ENORMOUSLY DANGEROUS because of that, and the danger only spreads as NK moves it submarines around the world armed with chemicals, germs and maybe nuclear bombs that don’t have to be sent up on a missile because the submarine is close enough to harbor, and its crew is willing to die for their demigod. The longer we wait, the more cities this little mop-top despot can blow up. It does not get better by waiting. Waiting is what has made it as bad as it is.

    The way the North Koreans think of their leader as godlike, is very reminiscent of the way the Japanese thought of Hirohito during WWII. He was their god-emperor, and the Japanese were more than willing to die for him. In fact, dying for the emperor was quite honorable.

    Do we really want to face a similar situation with Kim Jong-un? We have no idea what we’re in for. It’s kind of a stretch to say the Big Red Button could destroy the Big Blue Marble, but a war with North Korea will not be a pretty affair. (China agrees.)

    • Nick Smegg

      It is the Americans who believe they are some sort of Chosen nation with a Manifest Destiny which allowed them to genocide the Indians.

      • Tuba Tuba

        Check the prophesies America is empowered to fulfill the biblical prophesies by destroying other nations before itself is finally destroyed. So as we stand, America will still emerge winner in the current conflicts but her global supremacy is approaching its deadend

        • socalbeachdude

          Nope.

      • “Genocide” is not a verb. You need an American education. I’m a White American, and I work inside of an Indian Nation every work day, working for the Indian government. The people there love me, and I love them. We have no issues working together, and they do not blame me for “genociding” their ancestors. So, I needn’t blame myself, and, therefore, let some hand-clapping Korean Krackpot tinpot despot threaten to rein nukes down upon me because I belong to some nation that once killed indians, so I’m just getting my just due.

        –David Haggith
        The Great Recession Blog

        • Nick Smegg

          I’m glad that the Indians love you. However, the genocide still happened.

          And Americans are still slaughtering people around the world, allying with really nasty regimes like Saudi Arabia and pretending to be righteous. Until about thirty-five years ago, access was not a verb either. Languages change and develop over time.

          • Of course it happened, but time moves on. New people are born who bear no responsibility whatsoever for the acts of their ancestors. Many of them, like me and my Indian friends, are completely capable of moving on from the past, not dwelling on it, and never acting in that way ourselves (because we recognize it and understand it but don’t beat ourselves or each other up for it).

            None of that means we should allow, as you clearly wish to do, such genocide to happen all over again (this time perhaps to us) just because it is some poetic justice that would take out the nation that once “genocided” people in the past. (What an ugly form of verbizing — my new verb that means creating verbs out of nouns.) By such reasoning, all genocide is forever justifiable because it can all be blamed on some earlier feud. We should, in other words sit around and let North Korea take out Honolulu or Tokyo because the Japanese attacked Korea relentlessly for a thousand years and because Honolulu is now part of the United States, which fought the Korean War.

          • Nick Smegg

            You keep missing my point. The Indian genocide is over and now America has moved onto slaughering other people, in Vietnam, Iraq and afghanistan, to name but a few places. You are “bloodaholics” who can’t kick the habit.

          • I’m not missing your point. It’s pointless. No matter how much you hate Americans as the source of all evil in the world (and to your surprise I wouldn’t disagree with much of that), it is the dumbest reason in the universe to say the Americans should let this maniacal, pudgy, uncle-killing, fratricidal, self-annointed demigod build up an arsenal of hundreds of nuclear weapons and continue to develop missiles and submarines capable of delivering them anywhere in the world just so he can exceed the US in genocide! It’s a brain-dead argument.

          • Nick Smegg

            There’s no evidence that Kim wants to do all the evil you attribute to him. You have the same kind of “we must do something” attitude that liberals have. Oh, a transgender man got bullied, so we need to abolish gender.” Yours is “Oh, we have a man in Pyongyang that says horrible things, so we must turn the Korean peninsula into a radioactive desert.”

          • Are you actually that ignorant? Kim tied his uncle to a cannon and then blew his guts out. Kim had is half brother poisoned at an airport with a poison that is so lethal a bit the size of a grain of salt touching your skin will kill you. I wouldn’t dare write any of these words in North Korea because I would be killed if I did. he kills his own family members if they don’t stand with him. Kim has countless times fired missiles like a maniac in the general direction of highly armed nations. Kim has countless times STATE THAT HE WILL NUKE AMERICA if we blink in a way that he doesn’t like. Kim has several times blown up nuclear bombs against all international law. Kim has watched his nation starve as he spends billions developing his nuclear capacity (and to what end, just so he can enjoy the fireworks?)

            What Kim did to his uncle – incidentally the same as what the British did to hundreds of Indians after the Mutiny of 1857 – is an internal matter. It’s none of your business. Keep your nose out. You are not repsonsible for the rest of the world.

          • Again, what an utterly stupid response. You just said there is no evidence Kim would do anything I’ve said he would. I didn’t say the US should go after him because of what he did to his uncle. No one in the US says that. Not even Trump. I said it is clear evidence of the kind of person Kim is, clear evidence that he most certainly will do the kinds of atrocious things he says he will do.

            The reason the US should go after Kim is that he constantly and repeatedly threatens the US directly and very nearly has the capacity to do as he threatens, and he has on innumerable times given evidence that he wants to and will do the evil I’ve attributed to him because ALL that I have attributed to him are actions he has ALREADY DONE!

          • socalbeachdude

            Laughably false.

          • Do you live in a bubble?

          • socalbeachdude

            Hardly, but obviously you LIVE IN A WARMONGERING BUBBLE which is bursting as the truth comes out regarding both Syria and Korea.

          • Nick Smegg

            Maybe if NK took out the United States with this imaginary EMP weapon, the rest of the world would be a safer place.

          • socalbeachdude

            What utter nonsense, dude.

          • Ok. You’re just a troll because no one is that ignorant of the news to be unaware that he has done those things.

          • socalbeachdude

            What nonsense. I am very well aware of all of the absurd WARMONGERING “NEWS” and nearly all of it is preposterously BOGUS these days.

          • Today in The Telegraph:

            “It has carried out five nuclear tests – two of them last year – and multiple missile launches, one of which saw several rockets land in waters close to Japan last month.”

            Baloney of course. You weren’t there and didn’t see them land, so they didn’t happen.

            All news is “absurd warmongering” baloney if it rocks your happy little hammock. For example, North Korea’s own state television broadcasts today that showed huge ICBM launchers — total fake warmongers. Why they warmonger, though, when they are such perfectly reasonable people is a little hard to explain, so let me help you come up with an explanation: They wouldn’t really have those things because it doesn’t fit your fantasy. Their own broadcast statements that they are ready to engage in “all out war” today as well as the missile-launcher videos were fake news created by Amerika and piped into Korean broadcasts to make it look like NK was sending out these threats.

          • socalbeachdude

            Those tests all failed miserably!

          • You mean failed to land in waters around Japan?

            Oops, you actually just admitted they made those tests. So, you’re great reasoning is that, “Yes, they are lobbing missiles at Japan and Hawaii after all, but they all failed.” Do you mean failed to explode, or failed at actually hitting Japan?

            At least you admit they sent the missiles now. Earlier today you were denying even that. So, your twisted logic is that we should wait until their missile tests are A SPECTACULAR SUCCESS so the threat is much higher when we do finally act.

            Never mind that only lunatics would be lobbing missiles in the general direction of Japan and Hawaii in the first place. It’s not like South Korea goes around shooting failed missiles at other nations. Even China hasn’t sent any failed missiles flying at Japan. Why? Because those are the actions of stark raving lunatics. (The kind you defend.)

          • socalbeachdude

            So what? The US tests nuclear weapons all the time and North Korea can do the same with their missiles which are not even nuclear at all in nature.

          • So, we’ve gone from North Korea has never tossed missiles at Japan or Hawaii to “So what? The US does it, too.” No, the US has never once lobbed a failed missile at Russia or China or wherever just to try to tease them into a fight. Yes, the US tests nuclear weapons, as does China, as does Russia, but the US has never threatened to use its well-known and abundant nuclear weapons on North Korea, and it has only threatened to use nuclear weapons on a nation that uses nuclear weapons on it first.

            I’d like to see all the nuclear weapons gone, including those the US has; but I’m far less concerned about the US nuking someone after sixty years of the US always showing restraint by not using its nuclear weapons than I am about some nut job who throws missiles into Japanese waters just for the fun of it and off toward Hawaii just for the thrill.

            You, on the other hand, justify the lunatic as “perfectly rational” or side with those who make such an argument. At least, you finally admitted accidentally that NK has been lobbing missiles at Japan. To which your defenses is “so what?”

            Well no one else does that sort of thing. Even Iran doesn’t go around lobbing fake missiles at is neighbor. But it is all easily defensible in your bubble world with a mere “so what?”

            And why do you call North Korea liars by saying their missiles are not even nuclear in nature. They say they ARE.

          • ““Long live”, they chanted, as dozens of rockets and missiles capable of inflicting terrifying devastation for hundreds of miles around rumbled through the North Korean capital Pyongyang – an armoury of death accompanied by a chant for the well-being of their leader Kim Jong-un.

            “And at the heart of the parade across Kim Il-Sung Square was what was feared to be a new long-range ICBM missile, capable of striking the United States for the first time.

            “Goose-stepping in serried ranks, their pristine uniforms glinting in the sun, the men and women of North Korea’s armed forces put on a display reminiscent of a Soviet-era Cold War march past.”

            “But it was what came next that was meant to truly terrify the watching world; 56 missiles of 10 different models, culminating in a series of enormous rockets on articulated trailers.

            “The weaponry included what appeared to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile”

            Fake news, of course.

          • socalbeachdude

            So what? It’s THEIR COUNTRY, dude.

  • Jim Samuel

    So you want to wait until N. Korea hits S.Korea, Japan or the USA FIRST WITH A SURPRIZE NUKE ATTACK??? why??

    • socalbeachdude

      North Korea does not have functioning nuclear weapons and there would be no gain for North Korea in ever using them if they ever manage to develop any.

  • Blade

    Your right. We should just ignore them and maybe they will go away. This fat little pig doesn’t care about his country or people and he probably knows that most Americans and our allies wouldn’t want a catastrophe which gives him the edge. So let’s say we don’t bomb his nuclear test and he sends a missile into Japan and kills thousands. Then do we bomb the crap out of him after the fact. Smart think not.

    • Nick Smegg

      Why would Kim Jong Un launch an attack? North Korea hasn’t attacked anyone in 60 years. The US, on the other hand, has attacked countries in every corner of the earth. The US is also the only country to have used nukes against another nation.

      • K2

        ”Why would Kim Jong Un launch an attack?”

        Exactly.

          A timely reminder of some of the aggressive history displayed by Nth Korea.

          And Micheal appears to believe that appeasement will work; that Nth Korea, with that fat mad kid running the show, will NOT build up its weaponry – and use it at some stage… Dream on.

          The results of a preemptive strike now may be horrific but the alternative (hope & pray it won’t happen?) will be far worse.

      • Wow! Have you forgotten how Pudgkins’ daddy lobbed missiles at Hawaii? I was there when it happened and when the US sent out ships to intercept them, should they get too close. They were, of course, not armed, as they were merely intended as threats.

        So, let’s wait to see if this little baby who walks around with a dead crow on his head and claps when his uncle dies at the end of a cannon is just a tad more maniacal than daddy was … wait to see if he arms one of the missiles and then redirects it at the last part of its trajectory toward Honolulu!

        No one would ever want to blow up Pearl Harbor, would they? Not a chance in the world that a nation that hates the US because of whatever we’ve done to it would ever think of bombing Pearl Harbor.

        This is a guy who has shown he would gleefully launch his own uncle inside the warhead of a missile directed at Hawaii JUST FOR FUN!

        Here’s a great idea: Let’s wait to see if he actually does nuke something before we take the nukes out of his tiny hands. Given that he routinely and directly threatens the US (unlike Assad), let’s wait to see if he really means it and let him build up a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons in the meantime until we know for certain the threat is unmanageable. That’s the time to act!

        I mean, we SHOULD wait because we know we attacked a country named Japan with nukes, so we deserve it! Never mind that I’ve heard a number of Japanese say, “Unfortunately, you did what you had to do because we weren’t about to stop doing what we were doing.” Never mind the many Japanese visit Pearl Harbor as friends today and in attrition for their own actions. Never mind that Japan is now has NO FEAR WHATSOEVER that we will ever drop a nuclear bomb on Japan again because it knows we HATED the fact that we had to do it in the first place and would NEVER DO IT if we didn’t have to.

        Kim Jong-UNcle-killer, on the other hand, LOVES a pretty missile launch and claps his hands every time a big nuke goes off and ALWAYS seizes the day to say, “One day this will be coming at you, Uncle Sam.” He killed his own uncle. He’ll certainly kill this one if he believes he can.

      • Blade

        What nonsense are you talking about. I am being sarcastic here. The bottom line is the leader of North Korea is insane. He has some power and wants to flaunt it let alone use it. He doesn’t care if a much larger and militarily nation is his target or not. He knows most people in Europe and the United States don’t want any conflict with him so that gives him the chance to strike first and he will eventually. So why wait until he kills ten of thousands of people then do something. If he sends up a missile to test it shoot it down.

    But make no mistake, we are in the Fourth Turning. If not North Korea then we will be involved in a massive war with someone else.

  • Ace of Lances

    Appeasement is rarely a healthy option to war, as it prolongs the delusional feelings if persecution and superiority of the aggressor in question. If NK truly has these military options available, then we cannot rest easy until they are neutralized. To continue allowing sanctions to embitter this nation will not likely mend fences; perhaps a targeted strike to remove either the agents / weapons can alleviate this threat in a way that once more backing down will not? It is not an easy question, but one that has simmered unabated, for over sixty years, culminating soon with nuclear weapons testing by a proud and delusional aggressor. Let us hope all options are explored, and may God’s hand guide our future in this, as surely as He has the nuclear threat of the past 70 years. God Bless.

    There wont be a nuclear or atomic or world war people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    These kind of things happen everyday.

    Even if america decided to attack (which i think will not happen) but lets for argument sake assume that it decides to attack, even then it will attack it in such a way that north korea wont be able to retaliate.

    It will be a ‘calculated’ attack by america. America or trump is not stupid to start a wider war(pan asian or pan world war) with millions if people lives at risk.

    • HeyAHuman

      It’s somewhat naive to think that there would be no way that North Korea could retaliate… And a preemptive attack on NK would result in many civilian deaths, irrevocably damaged relations with many countries, and increasing war and chaos… “But don’t worry children… This happens everyday!”

    Hmmm, so they are about to conduct a nuclear weapons test…now how many nuclear weapons tests has the US conducted since WW2? And how many countries has North Korea attacked in the last 60 years. And how many countries has the USA attacked in the last 60 years.

    • socalbeachdude

  • tacoma

    North Korea and the South, backed by U.S., fought a most bloody epic war in 1952-1954. The reason is simple: the U.S. just won WW2 in Pacific conquering Japan. Korea, conquered by Imperial Japan became U.S. responsibility. The U.S. wanted to hold on to Korea like Japan. Well, Korea did not start WW2 and was not conquered by the U.S. It wanted no part being an American colony. The north rebelled and wanted to unify the country. The U.S. refused, landed troops in the south and the Korean War started. The north are also of Communist ideology which contributed to the war. (The Vietnam war was an exact situation.)

    Most people don’t understand why NK hates the U.S. so much. The U.S. flatten the north and killed a million. (It did twice as much to North Vietnam, which is why they will not be friend with the US. for another century.) NK have been preparing for a rematch ever since. The U.S. likewise, maintaining massive forces there. A rematch will certainly come.

    North Korea will not start the rematch. It will wait for America. The time has arrived with the Trump regime. Trump knows nothing about war or the military. He knows nothing about the blood of a hundred thousand. He has not seen a capital city destroyed. He does not know or care about unintended consequences of war. He does not need pretax like WMD. This is precisely why he will start Korean War 2. Korea War 2 is for the U.S., and Trump alone to deal with. There won’t be allies including Japan, who will only do defense.

    America elected Trump. It will get what it deserves.

      Thanks for the info. Didn’t MacArthur want to nuke NK? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.

      • tacoma

        As the war began the North gained success and was on the verge of taking the South. MacArthur was in charge and devised a huge gamble – he launched a marine invasion at Inchon near the capital Seoul up north. Caught by this surprise the North had to fight on two fronts – in front and at their back. Epic fighting resulted in the North retreated back to where they started. MacArthur, famous for his gigantic bravo and ego (like Trump), decided this is a good time to take his force all the way. He moved multiple divisions to take the North capital, then proceeded to the border with China. Truman asked him to stop because this was extreme provocation on China. MacArthur assured Truman that ‘Commie’ China is weak and ‘yellow’, won’t dare to touch him. He defied ‘weak’ Truman.

        As MacA’s forces settled along the Chinese border ready to cross, China attacked with 250,000 men. MacA failed to see such a force assembling in the border and was caught by complete surprise. His entire multi-division force was almost wiped out. Casualties so heavy he ordered withdraw back to the south – the biggest defeat and withdraw of U.S. army in history. Humiliated, MacA asked Truman not only to send heavy reinforcement, but to authorize nuke on China. Truman said no because the general defied his orders. Nuke on China will widen the war to both China and USSR. In violation of UN Security Council who authorized Korea action. MacA, who have been running the war from Tokyo, arrived in Korea and proceeded to reassemble his fractured force to launch another invasion on China. He even announced publicly that he will order Formosa (today’s Taiwan) to enter the war, thus setting policy over the president. Turman was outraged and fired Gen. MacArthur.

        The Korean war continued for two more years, huge bloodshed and ended in a stalemate. About 2.5 million people died, twice as many casualties. Check wikipedia for authoritative details and history.

  • Round Objects

    Has anybody heard of the term ‘misdirection’? Trump is sending a massive “armada” of firepower towards Korea and China is massing 150k troops on border with North Korea to protect it from an American invasion. It sounds more like an invasion from China, troops on the ground win wars not planes. China has more to gain by overthrowing the North Korean government, not America. China wants to be taken seriously and assert its global dominance and America wants a rogue government gone. Makes sense I think.

    North Korea has upgraded Russian diesel driven Subs, equipped with torpedoes capable of sinking US Ships, by lying undetected in ship-channels for weeks.

    The U.S. cannot detect these subs from more than 5 miles away if they are not in motion and parked on the ocean floor. North Korea’s main problem is propeller design, their propellers are not quiet enough, but their subs are quiet enough if they are not moving and are parked on the ocean floor which makes sonar location difficult. Since the area around Korea is only a few hundred feet deep, these subs can reach the bottom and end up being a real problem.
    North Korea’s least capable subs are 10 midget class subs that can still, due to greatly upgraded electronics, engage targets successfully from 60 miles away.

  • jerry young

    Where were you with your worries when Obama was arming N Korea with nuclear capabilities? so are we to just wait till they decide to use them on America? or should we demand they stand down with their threats of nuclear war? where is the UN now after all this is what they were originally meant to do

  • James Stamulis

    People forget how many times over the years N.Korea has attacked S. Korea as in sinking a naval ship with torpedoes with over 40 sailors dead or shelling islands killing civilians while Obama never so much as mentioned it. Sometimes someone with the intestinal fortitude has to give the bully a black eye or else not only does he continue his bullying but it gets worse as he gets bolder and bolder. The last thing i want is a nuclear war but someone has to stand up against these nutcases.

    I think people give the NK’s to much credit. They may have numbers, but to my memory, they havent been in a real war since the 1950’s. Bet those freshly painted 60 year old tanks cant stop depleted uranium rounds coming from one of our 30 year old tanks…lol. I would bet that if they launch a weapon from their own country, it will never reach its target. IF they launch from a sub, they have a chance to see one explosion before they get extincted by Trump and whats left of the Obama Destroyed U.S. Military.

  • Thomas Rondy

    There is some thought that while the DPRK (North Korea) possesses primitive atomic bombs, they lack the means to make them militarily effective. The main thing I would be concerned about is all the DPRK artillery aimed at Seoul. Seoul is a major city in the global economy, and its destruction could make the whole over-leveraged economic house of cards come tumbling down.

    • jakartaman

      You are right – I do not know if war will break out and start the economic collapse or will the economic collapse cause war? Does it matter?

    Collapsing American economy could be saved from crumbling into pieces only in the chaos created by a major war.
    The USA has become a loser of the global game the USA herself created, which the USA neither can withdraw from, break even nor win.

  • Mara natha

    I really don’t know what the answer is here and can see both sides as to whether we should stop him now or wait until he “does something”.

    Because the question is always , “Will he do something and when?”

    He seems to be all talk and no action, but he sure does talk.

    Strategically, it’s better to finish a problem before it becomes worse . However, it’s a bit like rolling the dice and making predictions and betting on the worse and then taking action .

    It could end the problem or it could provoke the problem to catastrophic proportions .

    I just don’t know . I hope you guys with all the information know.

    • leeholsen

      The answer here was not to send a naval group. you might put an area group at ready in case north korea starts figuring out how to send a missle more than one mile before it fails, but no reason to do more.
      Trump has now put the entire region into a higher tension for the rest of his term and in extension, any action he talks about in any other region; just because he wanted to look tough compared to Obama.
      I’m no Obama defender, Obama emabled most everything to become the problems they are today; but Trump is the reason we are now worried about WW3 starting any day.

      • socalbeachdude

        Absolutely correct due to the WARMONGERING NEOCONS who are running the Trump military.

    • Well, his father fired missiles at Hawaii back when I lived there. They were, of course, off course intentionally by a few hundred miles, but we knew he didn’t have the capacity to carry nuclear warhead on them back then, too. Nevertheless, US ships positioned themselves to shoot the missiles down if the got to close.

      So, do we let him continue to launch missiles in our general direction now that he DOES have nuclear capability and just hope they don’t change course at the last minute (as surely he would not be that tricky … would he?)

      I understand you’re right that it is hard to know the perfect answer because there is no perfect answer. All answers, including continuing with endless talk and sanctions, lead to heightened risk, but the longer we wait (having already waited far too long), the more he will be able to keep us paralyzed in fear, and, so, the stronger he will grow.

      • Mara natha

        I’m not worried about launching against North Korea . I know we could take them out without any difficulties . Problems arise from China and to South Korea as well as Japan and yes Hawaii . It’s the many permutations and spiraling scenarios that are presented from an attack against North Korea that gives me pause .

        • It gives me pause, too, Mara. Unfortunately, the longer we have paused the worse by far the problem has become. I don’t see that trajectory as changing unless we do something bold to change it. The risks are real, but they have also grown worse with every day we have waited.

          • Mara natha

            I really do understand better than you know . Our family served overseas and lived in Japan . My son was born there . During that time we had that big escalation in Korea and my husband was deployed with the fleet and in Korea during that time … Almost for the entire term of my pregnancy . It was a scary time . My husband is also third-generation Hawaiian . So his entire family would be affected . In fact, that’s where we will be retiring in the not-too-distant future so I’d like to still be there and not radioactive as well . I really do understand . My friend’s son is currently stationed in South Korea, right on the DMZ .

          • Yes, then you do understand exactly. I lived in Hawaii when Kim Jung-un’s dad was lobbing missiles at Hawaii. For people to think he’d never lob an armed one that way is stupid when he has already sent missiles that way. He could have gotten himself blown up for sending unarmed missiles aimed slightly off course because we have no obligation under international law to simply take him at his word that they are unarmed and no way of knowing if that is true. We also have no way of knowing with certainty whether or not he could adjust their course in the final part of their trajectory and sent them straight into Honolulu.

          • JC Teecher

            So true, as missile after missile gets closer and closer to our allies and possibly our own state in the Pacific.

            One day they may be loaded and hit a target intentionally or not, and there goes innocent lives.

            The naysayers and anti-trump people will be saying, “why did Trump not see this coming and do something”?

            it’s easy to play armchair quarterback when the deaths come on someone else’s watch. Trump and the Generals are doing exactly what they should be doing with an ego-maniac like Kim Jung on the loose. There should be a signal sent to Iran, that the US of A will not tolerate threats of any kind, without a rapid and deadly response.

            I support them, whatever the results.

      The only problem with a pre-trib rapture belief, is that it is not biblical.

      It was and is a concocted story by men with cruel intentions to further their any moment, stay in church, and pay us (preachers) for protection, doctrine.

      Christ has said that He will come “after” the tribulation of those days. Not before.

      People putting their hope in a “church” flyaway doctrine will be sorely mistaken and disappointed when the shtf, and they are still here wishing and waiting.

      My grandpa used to say; “boy, wish in one hand and dodo in the other, and see which gets full first”.

      In the twinkling of an eye, when the Lord returns for every eye to witness,
      after” the tribulations of antichrist/satan, then the change from flesh into spirit (rapture) happens, as the Millennial Kingdom begins.

            I hold the pre-trib rapture doctrine loosely (not tenaciously.) There are scriptures that make a strong case for it. But some would violently disagree. And the different camps do tend to stone each other, as do so many other groups with disparate views.

            Post trib is classical church doctrine. Pre came much later. That by itself doesn’t make either position true or false.

            All that said, I don’t think that God wants us to hang around waiting to be scooped up by the raptura, or “catching up.” Pre-trib or not, I’m sure He wants us to occupy until He comes (I’m sure you are), and put our faith in Him, not any one systematic theology.

            I know some would disagree. but God is a collector of hearts, not that of fine specificities of doctrine. 🙂

            He is not so concerned with our position, as He is with our disposition.

    Everyone is looking for rockets from NK, but look for stealthy submarines.

  • pioni

    Too much appeasement with N Korea, with Iran, with the Palestinian arabs has brought nothing.
    Let America strike N Korea and wipe off their nuke facilitiies, and let Israel strike Iran and wipe off their nuke facilities simultaneously.
    They, their protectors and their emulators will know why and back down. We need to restore some order in this chaos.

    • socalbeachdude

      What utter nonsense and inane WARMONGERING.

  • Liberty First

    This is a tough call Michael…I rather agree something must be done while the little psycho with the bad haircut gets more nukes. But even a conventional assault on S Korea would be a catastrophe beyond what we have seen in war in decades. So tough to say. People are definitely underestimating the probability of conflict and also the insanely huge impact it would have on our lives. Economically speaking, as well. S Korea is an economic powerhouse, that provides many essential goods and services. We would lose much of that, esp. in tech.

    Regarding your intel source, I do not think it seems credible necessarily. But I suppose you vet your people.

  • GSOB

    GFP.COM ranks NK 26 of 126 nations. USA is #1

  • Yes, it could be catastrophic. However, it has ONLY gotten this bad because we have dithered like cowards, instead of ending the problem, for decades. Now we have allowed a maniacal baby to own nuclear weapons and missiles that MIGHT be capable of delivering them. Certainly, he has missiles that are capable of delivering them if he can sneak a submarine in close enough to a US city.

    And the longer we dither as cowards the worse and worse this eventuality becomes. Being afraid to take decisive action is exactly what allowed things to get to this point, and continuing to vacillate in fear assures things will become far more dire in as little as a year or two.

    • chris

      You fail to even mention that the partitioning of Korea is itself the fault of arrogant USA foreign policy. The USA was responsible for creating the Korean war in the first place by trying to impose a WW2 quizzling as the political leader of Korea. The USA is therefore responsible for creating NK and any loonies that may run it. You reap what you sow.

      • Therefore, we should let him continue to send missiles to Hawaii and continue to accumulate nuclear weapons until he blows us up. You are saying we made him the maniacal demigod he is.

        • socalbeachdude

          The Lil Un is not sending missiles to Hawaii and all of their missile test always fail.

          • Correct. The Little Un didn’t send them to Hawaii. His papa did. The little un likes to skirt them along the shores of South Korea and send them vaguely toward Japan. You like to excuse him for it.

          • socalbeachdude

            The Lil Un is just a crazy little fat bad boy that is best dealt with by sending him a few extra cases of Scotch.

          • Your idea of a smart world is to let little phat boys play with nuclear arms. And just what we need is for twitchy-fingers to be drunk, too, as he gleefully fingers the red button in amusement at its pretty color and the joy of its kabooms. You should stay on the beach drinking mai tais and let the thinking people run the world.

            Stay on your surf board, but don’t go too far out because that is where the missiles have been landing.

          • You should start reading the news and spend a little less time in the sun. If you did, you’d know that phat boy has done all those things. It’s pretty much been reported in every newspaper on earth, except the North Korean ones. At least, bring a newspaper to your hammock once in awhile and try to keep up.

          • socalbeachdude

            I am very well aware of all of the absurd WARMONGERING “NEWS” and nearly all of it is preposterously BOGUS these days.

          • Correct. the Lil Un didn’t send them to Hawaii. His papa did. The Lil Un likes to send them skirting the shores of South Korea and vaguely in the direction of Japan.

            You like to excuse him for it. As for they always failed, your plan is to wait until they always succeed and then act when the peril is greatest. (And, no, they haven’t always failed. Some have gone exactly where intended, including the ones his daddy sent skimming past Hawaii. Perhaps you were too busy surfing or knocking back mai tais at the time to read the news. Good thing you weren’t surfing a little further out at the time, or it might have hit you in the head. Or maybe it did.)

While your head is in the sand pretending he won’t hurt you any more than he did his uncle, his nuclear explosion will light up your backside in a lovely orange glow that is exceeded only by the radiance of Donald Trump’s hair.

    • socalbeachdude

      Indeed.

  • You’re right, but with the caveat that he ALREADY has long-range nukes. He has submarines that we seem incapable of locating. That means he has long-range nukes because you don’t have to be on target with a nuke. It’s a game in which close counts more than it does in horseshoes or hand grenades. All he has to do is get a submarine sidled up to a US port like Honolulu, and that’s the end of that city.

    He has that capacity now. I’m sure we have vigilant underwater watching capabilities, but I’m more than sure our vigilance is not complete and not flawless even where it is active. The longer we wait, the more submarines he manages to maneuver into position and the more nuclear bombs he manages to get into port cities in lead-lined containers.

    • Gay Veteran

    • Spatial Memory

      You read that in a fortune cookie or a Ouija board?

  • North Korea is a barren wasteland, which has never had anything the US is remotely interested in. The US was content ultimately to leave it as a backwater to South Korea and let it live in its own self-desired isolation. We have as much interest in dominating North Korea as we have in dominating Upper Mongolia. (Oh yeah, THERE’S a land we can’t live without — frozen Siberian-like wasteland that it is.)

    And yet people writing here are braindead enough to think the US would actually pay any attention to North Korea at all if it simply minded its own business and heard yaks like the Mongolian. But, of course, it does not.

    Instead, because it is ruled by a family of maniacal tinpot, crackpot despots, it’s greatest source of entertainment on a rainy Saturday has been to lob stay missiles at Hawaii and Japan, playing a game of mumbly peg where it announces the launch is coming and that it will be unarmed and that it will not hit either country, but always bringing the missile as close as it thinks it can without getting itself killed.

    It does this because its leaders are suicidal. They are suicidal because they come from a long line of demigods who believe they are immortal and should be worshipped. They believe they are immortal because they have pudgy little bodies that make them look like living Buddhas, and they believe they should be worshipped for their superior fashion sense. (They wear tents for jackets and wear roadkill (dead black squirrels) for hats.)

    The youngest of these dictators has lost a lot of genetic material due to the fact that he is a third-generation copy. His favorite pastime is strapping his uncles to cannons and shooting projectiles through their guts. He watches movies like Dr. Strangelove and falls in love with himself all over again. The movie inspires him to someday put another uncle inside of a missile warhead and fire him at Hawaii.

    Every once in awhile, he has a nuclear bash — a big dance party — at which he can be seen clapping his tiny hands and smiling gleefully because the big earthshaking boom was more fun than listening to his woofers inside his big blue Bugatti. Whenever he can manage to slip is chubby body out of the ‘gatti or out of his hot tub full of honeys it is so he can stand in front of his raving populace and receive the worship due him as a demigod.

    This is the little pudgkins we should allow to have nuclear arms because he will destroy us if we don’t? Yes, he might. And he certainly WILL if we just keep talking about the problem because Kim Jong-UNcle-killer scares us. Let us allow him to continue to amass nuclear explosives AND submarines capable of delivering them to our shores. The world will be safer today if leave him alone and certainly dead tomorrow.

    Fear Is Creeping Back Into Markets – Bloomberg

    The calm in stocks worldwide is giving way to concern, with investors in Europe and the U.S. rushing to hedge against declines and a Credit Suisse Group AG index flashing a warning as the list of economic and political obstacles grows.

    The Credit Suisse Fear Barometer, which measures the cost of buying protection against declines in the S&P 500 Index, neared an all-time high this week. The higher the reading, the more expensive it is to buy protection relative to upside calls, according to Mandy Xu, an equity derivatives strategist at Credit Suisse.

    How the debt bubble burst for China’s Huishan Dairy

    A missing treasury head, a mysterious 85 per cent stock plunge, resignations of half of its board members and a billionaire tycoon chairman most of whose wealth evaporated in 1.5 hours.

    All of these have combined to create what has become an unfolding drama engulfing China’s largest dairy farm operator, China Huishan Dairy Holdings, whose crisis has exposed a gigantic debt overhang looming over corporate China.

    Before its remarkable March 24 share price crash, by a record 85 per cent in 90 minutes, Huishan had been one of the most “stable” stocks in Hong Kong, hovering around a narrow range between HK$2.75 (US 25 cents) and HK$3.17 for nine months.

    BIG AND IMPORTANT NORTH KOREA EVENT…

    Kim Jong-Un unveils 770ft ‘ultra-modern, prestige’ skyscraper complex (with no hot water) in the heart of Pyongyang as dictator orders removal of 600,000 ‘undesirables’ from the city

    Foreign reporters had earlier been warned to expect a ‘big and important’ event in North Korea today – but it turned out to be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a Pyongyang housing project.

    Thousands of cheering North Koreans watched on as Kim Jong-Un opened the sprawling Ryomyong Street development, which includes 5,000 flats.

    The tallest of the buildings is 70 stories while North Korean Premier Pak Pong Ju insisted they ‘incorporate the latest architectural science and technology, including solar and geothermal technology, and the greening of roofs and walls’.

    It comes amid reports Kim Jong-un has ordered 600,000 residents out of the city to make way for the country’s elite. But there are some suggestions the move was part of Kim’s preparations for war amid heightened tensions with the West and after the US sent an ‘armada’ of warships to the the Korean Peninsula.

        The leaders see themselves as gods, and have made it illegal to be Christian in their country. Anyone caught practicing Christianity, is tortured, imprisoned, and/or killed.

        That is another reason they hate the west so much, especially the openly practicing Christianities of America.

        I think God sees them as another group of peoples like he saw the idol worshiping Philistines of old, and will allow the destruction of their Totalitarian government, along with their evil leaders. Just my opinion.

          Never knew this before.
          In the South their are many Christians.
          We view the differences between North & South Korea we see the stark differences between a modern free nation & a Communist dictatorship!

  • retired22

    I believe the big problem is to figure a way for the North Korean regime to save face while standing down!
    After this the Trump Administration can offer the Chinese some trade concession to forward to the Koreans as a reward for good behavior.

        How the debt bubble burst for China’s Huishan Dairy

        A missing treasury head, a mysterious 85 per cent stock plunge, resignations of half of its board members and a billionaire tycoon chairman most of whose wealth evaporated in 1.5 hours.

        All of these have combined to create what has become an unfolding drama engulfing China’s largest dairy farm operator, China Huishan Dairy Holdings, whose crisis has exposed a gigantic debt overhang looming over corporate China.

        Before its remarkable March 24 share price crash, by a record 85 per cent in 90 minutes, Huishan had been one of the most “stable” stocks in Hong Kong, hovering around a narrow range between HK$2.75 (US 25 cents) and HK$3.17 for nine months.

    FAILURE TO LAUNCH…

    North Korean ballistic missile launch FAILS: Kim Jong-un launches new ‘game changer missile’ – but it BLOWS UP almost immediately in embarrassing failure as Vice President Pence flies to Seoul

    North Korea has attempted to fire a missile but the launch was a failure, according to local media.

    It is thought to be one of the country’s new ‘game-changer’ missiles paraded just hours before.

    The South Korean defence ministry said it had detected a failed launch but there were no other details immediately available. Just hours before the firing of the missile North Korea unveiled new weapons during a display of the country’s military might as Kim Jong-Un warned of an ‘annihilating strike’ if the US attacks. President Donald Trump had previously pledged to ‘take care’ of the issue following his surprise cruise missile attack on Syria over its use of chemical weapons.

    Meanwhile Pyongyang also threatened ‘catastrophic consequences’ when Trump sent an armada of warships to the Korean Peninsula.

    At the same time, China has moved 150,000 troops to its border to deal with a possible influx of North Korean refugees amid fears Trump may strike Kim following the surprise US missile attack on Syria last week.

    Anti-Trump protest turns into a massive brawl: Hundreds of Tax Day protesters trade punches with Donald supporters in Berkeley

    At least 15 people have been arrested after violence broke out Saturday between groups of supporters and detractors of President Donald Trump holding rallies in Berkeley.

    About 200 people were at Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park when several people started pushing each other on Saturday morning. Counter-protesters against a pro-Trump rally broke through netting separating the two groups in the park. It is not clear whether the ‘Patriot’s Day’ rally organized by the Liberty Revival Alliance, a pro-Trump group, was meant as a counterpoint to the Tax Marches held across the country.

    Didn’t Jericho the TV series 10 years ago hint at a nuclear attack against the US that was blamed on North Korea and Iran to which the US counter-attacked with nuclear weapons? It looks like we’re getting closer to a similar reality heaven help us all…

    • K2

      Calm down, no nuclear war will happen. People have been saying this since 65 years.

  • FirstGarden

    It’s not that we want war with NKorea. Fboy is the one who is always threatening it.

    In light of all the years of weak, vacuous “leadership”, perhaps we shouldn’t move too quickly, due to the extreme contrasts in leadership. We should consider pacing things a little slower, offering multiple warnings from a new administration.

    Having done that, we should deal with evil as it is — an implacable enemy.

    Same with Iran – the ancient regional prince of Persia. You cannot negotiate with evil; not in the long run. Evil pretends complicity while plotting your demise the whole time.

    The lunatic-in-chief cut his rotten deal with the Persian Aryans, as did Poland and Russia with the German Aryans, who then turned around and attacked them.

    They hated Obama and he’s a Muslim. How much more do they hate us – the total “infidels”? Even during the negotiations they were chanting “Death to America,” etc, etc. They can’t even contain themselves from showing their true colors. And the mullahs did nothing to stop it, and instead winked at it.

    It’s painful to say this because, people have enormous intrinsic worth; but it’s like trying to negotiate with a pestilence to leave the region. The whole nature of it is diabolical, deceitful, destructive and parasitical.

    Anyone in their right mind hates war. But there comes a time when it is forced upon us. Other times, it is a judgement call whether or not to wait for the evil to fully manifest itself before waging war against it.

    “War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good.

      • FirstGarden

        Really?
        The Achaemenid Empirefrom Old Persian Haxāmanišiya, (550–330 BC), also called the (First) Persian Empire, was an empire based in Western Asia, founded by Cyrus the Great.
        They didn’t become a world-governing empire (along with the Medes) by selling lemonade.
        More like bloody Marys.

        • FirstGarden

          A little history:

          Between 1804 and 1813, Iran and Russia fought a bloody conflict in the Caucasus which ended with the 1813 Treaty of Gulistan. Iran’s Qajar dynasty leader, Fath Ali Shah, admittedly at the goading of the British and tempted by promised aid, broke the treaty and re-invaded the territory 13 years later.

          It was a disastrous move; Russia pushed back Iranian forces and ended up taking what now is Armenia and the southern portion of independent Azerbaijan.

          • FirstGarden

            Then there was the Anglo-Persian War of 1856-1857. Persian forces invaded western Afghanistan to press their claim to Herat. British-Indian forces invaded Iran at Bushehr to compel the withdrawal of Persian forces, which they successfully did. (One of the what-if’s of history is what might have happened if the India Mutiny had occurred a year earlier; after all, the British utilized forces which had been in Persia the previous year and cannons seized during the campaign to put down the 1858 revolt in their prize colony).

            In addition, border skirmishes at the southern tip of the Shatt al-Arab were common in the first decade of the twentieth century as Iranian forces sought both to consolidate control over their territory and, at times, push into Basra, southern Iraq’s major city.

          • FirstGarden

            Alas, Iranian aggression has a longer history. In 1968, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson announced that Britain would withdraw “from east of Suez” within a few years. As the British Navy pulled back from the Persian Gulf in 1970, Iranian forces seized Abu Musa and the Greater and Lesser Tonbs, islands that legally belonged to Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates.

            At the time, the United States turned a blind eye toward Iranian aggression. After all, under the Nixon Doctrine, Iran was a pivotal state through which the United States hoped to bring stability to the Middle East.

            The Islamic Republic has only doubled down on that occupation, transforming those islands—and Abu Musa in particular—into Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) bases. Indeed, in the course of talk about returning Abu Musa (though not its waters) to the United Arab Emirates, it transpired that the IRGC has used the island as a chemical weapons depot.

          • FirstGarden

            Then, there’s the case of Bahrain.As Britain prepared to withdraw from the Persian Gulf, the shah laid claim to the entirety of Bahrain, which it considered a wayward province that should return to the fold. The shah agreed to abide by a referendum to determine whether Bahrainis sought to be part of Iran or have their independence. They overwhelmingly chose the latter.

            Iranian revolutionary leader Khomeini was not so magnanimous, however. As Bahrain approached its tenth anniversary as an independent state, Iran sought to use a proxy group it trained—the Islamic Front for the Liberation of Bahrain (IFLB)—to overthrow the monarchy and return Bahrain to Iran. Lest any apologist dismiss Iranian involvement as Arab propaganda, the Library of Congress has a full set of IFLB magazines with photo essays depicting Iran’s Revolutionary Guards training the group and IFLB officials swearing allegiance to Khomeini.

          • FirstGarden

            Then there’s Hezbollah. About a decade ago, the Islamic Republic’s first two ambassadors to Lebanon gave a lengthy interview to Asharq al-Awsat, the largest circulation pan-Arab newspaper, in which they detailed Iranian involvement in the creation of Hezbollah.

            In its initial years, Hezbollah focused just as much on attacking other Lebanese groups as it did Israel. Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000 (and the United Nations certified its withdrawal) but Hezbollah precipitated a war in 2006 by staging a cross-border raid into Israel.

            While Hezbollah has constantly framed itself as a resistance organization, it turned its guns on fellow Lebanese in 2008 in a fight for control over revenue.

            More recently, it has carried out aggressive ethnic and sectarian cleansing inside Syria on behalf of the Assad regime.

            It is an Iranian proxy through and through. I’ve been to Hezbollah bunkers before at Mlitta, in southern Lebanon. That they are decorated with posters of Khomeini and Khamenei, rather than any Lebanese figures, should put to rest the notion that Hezbollah is a Lebanese nationalist organization.

          • FirstGarden

            And, of course, there’s the Iran-Iraq War. Saddam Hussein certainly started that conflict, but the Islamic Republic sought more than to return to the status quo. In 1982, Iran had more or less pushed the Iraqi invaders out of its territory. Khomeini was considering a ceasefire but, according to former president Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s memoirs, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps pressured/convinced Khomeini to keep the war going until they met the goal of “liberating Jerusalem.” There followed six more years of bloodshed at the cost of perhaps a half million more lives.

            And, while pedantic, Zarif

            [Mohammad Javad Zarif – Foreign Affairs Minister of Iran]

            might want to remember that the missiles flew both ways during the Iran-Iraq War, as did the chemical weapons (although, admittedly, Iraq used them first).

          • FirstGarden

            Then there’s the issue of “Export of R e v o l u t i o n,” defined in both the Iranian constitution and the founding statute of the Islamic R e v o l u t i o n a r y Guard Corps as an essential part of the Islamic Republic.

          • FirstGarden

            In 2008, according to the Iranian newspaper Emruz (Today), former President Mohammad Khatami suggested “Export of R e v o l u t i o n” was just a call to utilize soft power to show the superiority of the Islamic Republic’s system:

          • FirstGarden

            What did the Imam [Khomeini] want, and what was his purpose of exporting the r e v o l u t i o n?

          • FirstGarden

            [Did he wish that] we should export r e v o l u t i o n by means of g u n p o w d e r or groups sabotaging other countries?”

          • FirstGarden

            Khatami asked, in effect acknowledging that Iran had used violence to undermine other countries. He answered his own rhetorical questions, declaring, “He meant to establish a role model here, which means people should see that in this society, the economy, science, and dignity of man are respected…

          • FirstGarden

            That would be all well and good if the matter dropped there. But the IRGC was outraged and protested Khatami’s remarks. Three weeks later, Ayatollah Shahroudi, one of the Supreme Leader’s closest associates, ended the debate once and for all, declaring to a group of IRGC, “Know your worth since today you are the hope of Islamic national and Islamic liberation movements.”

          • FirstGarden

            Then, of course, there’s the fact that not only has Iran become the largest state-sponsor of terrorism, but it also continues its efforts to attack Israel with a declared goal of eradicating the Jewish state.

            This isn’t simply the case of the most recent Iranian ballistic missile launch. Years ago, despite Juan Cole’s mistranslation, Iranian leaders did call for “wiping Israel off the face of the world.” Don’t take my word for it: take Iran’s.

          • FirstGarden

            And when the father of the Islamic Republic’s ballistic missile program died in an explosion at an IRGC missile base, the Iranian press revealed that his will requested his epitaph read, “The man who enabled Israel’s destruction.”

            So is it true that Iran hasn’t invaded anyone in the last 200 or 250 years? No. Zarif has long had trouble with the truth. And Juan Cole has always looked at tenure as security to engage in political polemic, unencumbered by fact. But even if that statement were to be amended to 150 or 100 or 45 years, to suggest Iran hasn’t been the aggressor is to ignore its sponsorship of terrorism and insurgency.

          • FirstGarden

            It’s one thing to pursue deals with Iran. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) probably won’t stand the test of time any more than did the 1994 Agreed Framework with North Korea, but elections matter as do Congressional compromises.

            It’s quite another, however, to whitewash if not outright falsify Iran’s historical record in order to justify trust where none is deserved. Certainly, over the centuries, Iran has been a victim of imperialism, but it has also been the aggressor.

            Indeed, since the Islamic R e v o l u t i o n, Iran has been perhaps the most aggressive state in the Middle East, launching more attacks against neighbors and deploying its military far more widely and aggressively than any other country. It’s time to get real.

        Six-Day War (June 1967) – Fought between Israel and Arab neighbors Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. The nations of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria, and others also contributed troops and arms to the Arab forces.

        • FirstGarden

          War of Attrition (1967–1970) – A limited war fought between the Israeli military and forces of the Egyptian Republic, the USSR, Jordan, Syria, and the Palestine Liberation Organization from 1967 to 1970. It was initiated by the Egyptians as a way of recapturing the Sinai from the Israelis, who had been in control of the territory since the mid-1967 Six-Day War.

          • FirstGarden

            Yom Kippur War (October 1973) – Fought from October 6 to October 26, 1973 by a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria against Israel as a way of recapturing part of the territories which they lost to the Israelis back in the Six-Day War. The war began with a surprise joint attack by Egypt and Syria on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. Egypt and Syria crossed the cease-fire lines in the Sinai and Golan Heights, respectively.

            Palestinian insurgency in South Lebanon (1971–1982) – PLO relocate to South Lebanon from Jordan and stage attacks on the Galilee and as a base for international operations. In 1978, Israel launches Operation Litani – the first Israeli large-scale invasion of Lebanon, which was carried out by the Israel Defense Forces in order to expel PLO forces from the territory. Continuing ground and rocket attacks, and Israeli retaliations, eventually escalate into the 1982 War.

            “.. at least as long as Iran’s Supreme Leader is alive, and as long as the ruling clerics preserve the political establishment, the Islamic Republic of Iran will maintain the core pillars of its foreign policies and revolutionary principles: these are anchored in anti-Israel, anti-American and anti-Semitic politics.

      An unreachable corporate treasurer. An emergency meeting with creditors. A $4.1 billion stock collapse. And a vindicated short seller.

      All that and more converged in a remarkable week for China Huishan Dairy Holdings Co., a milk producer with outsized ambitions that may turn into the country’s latest poster child for weak corporate governance, the dangers of leverage and the potential for financial shocks.

      Four days after a sudden 85 percent drop in Huishan shares left investors grasping for answers, the company laid out its version of events in a Hong Kong exchange filing on Tuesday.

    Missile? What missile? Daily life in North Korea continues as soldiers enjoy an ice cream and visit a flower exhibition while the world reels from Kim Jong-Un’s failed rocket launch

    While the world reels from North Korea’s latest show of nuclear strength, it appears the country’s troops have more pressing matters to attend to such as eating ice cream and attending flower exhibitions. After thousands of the country’s military marched over the Easter weekend to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the birth of the nation’s founder Kim Il-Sung, some have been pictured chomping on the sweet treats and queuing in their masses for the floral show.

    As tensions heightened across the globe, civilians enjoying the national holidays took to the country’s water parks and hundreds of children were seen playing. North Korea attempted to fire a missile it introduced just hours previously at a military parade – but the launch was an embarrassing failure after the weapon blew up five seconds later.

    Fears rise of U.S. strike on North Korea: Trump’s national security adviser says ‘all options are on the table’ as the President sets his sights on key targets

    The US refused to rule out a pre-emptive strike on North Korea last night as Donald Trump’s national security adviser warned the situation was ‘coming to a head’. After the rogue state ran a missile test that failed, Lieutenant General HR McMaster said ‘all our options are on the table’ to try to ‘avoid the worst’. Frantic talks were taking place with allies including China to ‘develop a range of options’ in an attempt to quell tensions and calm fears of thermo-nuclear war. The graphic shows the target’s in Trump’s sights.

    Fear Is Creeping Back Into Markets – Bloomberg

    The calm in stocks worldwide is giving way to concern, with investors in Europe and the U.S. rushing to hedge against declines and a Credit Suisse Group AG index flashing a warning as the list of economic and political obstacles grows.

    The Credit Suisse Fear Barometer, which measures the cost of buying protection against declines in the S&P 500 Index, neared an all-time high this week. The higher the reading, the more expensive it is to buy protection relative to upside calls, according to Mandy Xu, an equity derivatives strategist at Credit Suisse.

    Five reasons why the US cannot attack North Korea like it did Syria

    China is North Korea’s ally. In 1961, the two countries signed the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty, in which both parties are obliged to offer immediate military and other assistance to the other in the case of an outside attack. This treaty has been prolonged twice, and is valid until 2021.

    http://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy-defence/article/2087904/five-reasons-why-us-cannot-attack-north-korea-it-did

    So by attacking North Korea we are attacking China. That’s why their armies are massed at the border. They aren’t preparing a pincer strategy. They’re going to drive the South into the sea. Regardless of the North Korean missiles which are quite ineffective and a threat to the forces launching them, China’s can make a good part of the United States a radioactive wasteland. As Winston Churchill said, better to JAW JAW than WAR WAR.

    So don’t feel sick. We were warned these things will come to pass. I retain faith understanding that we will be tried in the fire. It is the only way because man is so inured to his folly. He cannot reflect and seek a better way. He can only lust after money and power exploiting this Eden. All we need is the spark. The fuel is strewn everywhere. Donald may well light the match.

    Signs of the End of the Age

    Matthew 24:6

    5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.…

            How the debt bubble burst for China’s Huishan Dairy

            A missing treasury head, a mysterious 85 per cent stock plunge, resignations of half of its board members and a billionaire tycoon chairman most of whose wealth evaporated in 1.5 hours.

            All of these have combined to create what has become an unfolding drama engulfing China’s largest dairy farm operator, China Huishan Dairy Holdings, whose crisis has exposed a gigantic debt overhang looming over corporate China.

            Before its remarkable March 24 share price crash, by a record 85 per cent in 90 minutes, Huishan had been one of the most “stable” stocks in Hong Kong, hovering around a narrow range between HK$2.75 (US 25 cents) and HK$3.17 for nine months.

            The Korean Peninsula technically remains in a state of war. Fighting halted on July 27, 1953 under an armistice signed between Washington and Beijing. If the US initiated an attack, it would break the treaty endorsed by the United Nations.

    Five reasons why the US cannot attack North Korea like it did Syria

    The Korean Peninsula technically remains in a state of war. Fighting halted on July 27, 1953 under an armistice signed between Washington and Beijing. If the US initiated an attack, it would break the treaty endorsed by the United Nations.

    China is North Korea’s ally. In 1961, the two countries signed the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty, in which both parties are obliged to offer immediate military and other assistance to the other in the case of an outside attack. This treaty has been prolonged twice, and is valid until 2021.

    TRUST IN TRUMP GOES INTO THE DUMP…

    Less than half of Americans now think Trump keeps his promises – and barely one-third call him ‘honest and trustworthy’

    A few weeks into his White House term, 62 per cent of U.S. adults said Trump was a reliable oathkeeper. Two months later, however, that number dropped to 45 per cent.

      Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

      The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove.

      This is the first time the president’s overall approval rating has been back in the 50s in nearly a month. Just after his inauguration, Trump’s job approval peaked at 59% and remained in the 50s every day until early March. It’s gone as low as 42% since then.

      • socalbeachdude

        So what? Trump is MORALLY AND ETHICALLY BANKRUPT as he has proven QED. That poll just proves how stupid many Americans apparently are these days.

    This is what years of weak and appeasement leadership brings a nation too. It did not work before WWII and it has not worked with NK. All one does is give time to despots and dictators to build up their forces for an even more devastating war in the future.

    In the later 90’s, we had plans to cease NK’s arms buildup then, but due to estimated causalities, mil and civilian, around 50,000, the Clinton admin would not hear of it. It was better to wait for someone else to have to deal with the madman. That same approach became Obama’s 8 year unwritten policy.

    Fast forward 20 years from 1997, and look at what we now face! A madman with 20-30 nukes, missiles, subs, etc, etc, and now instead of 50k causalities, we may very well be looking at 5 MILLION!

    So, some people who cannot strategically think desire another few years for NK to build an ADDITIONAL 30-50 Nukes, maybe perfect a Hydrogen bomb, and scores more ICBMs and SLBMs that will ACTUALLY WORK!?!? Thus raising the “potentials” from 5 Million to 50 Million?

    Talk about the worst failure of US diplomacy and strategy!?!

    • JC Teecher

      yep, just like the bull caca agreement with the iranians.

            Hey nut job! I was a part of that late 1990’s NK assessment and planning, and I served my share of years near the DMZ. I retired after 33+ years of mil service and continued to serve in a civilian capacity, so I do know a little something of what I speak.

    Republicans Prepare To Lose On A Government Funding Bill

    Republicans may hold the House, the Senate and the White House, but when it comes to the upcoming omnibus spending bill, it’s Democrats who look in control.

    There are still a number of tricky issues to settle, and there are plenty of ways a deal could blow up, but when Congress returns next week just a few days before an April 28 government funding deadline, the emerging bill seems likely to please Democrats and anger conservatives.

    It’s the first real instance where Republicans and President Donald Trump need Democratic votes to enact their agenda ― short of once again blowing up Senate rules ― and that leverage has Democrats blocking many Republican priorities.

    Will Trump Accept Responsibility When It All Implodes?

    How in the world does anyone with two brain cells believe the average American has the ability to keep increasing their spending when their wages are stagnant, real household income is falling, and Obamacare continues to siphon what little cash they might have. There is no Obamacare replacement on the horizon, which means no tax cuts. But there is the promise of new wars across the globe. We got that going for us.

    Trump is a self proclaimed PR genius. As this economy spirals downward, followed by the stock market, I wonder if the Donald will step up and accept responsibility for the debacle when it happens. He needs to reap what he sows and accept responsibility if he is going to boast about his success in reviving the economy.

    Trump sent two more carrier groups to back up the old mothball ready Carl Vinson, The New Reagan and old Nimitz. The Navy ain’t what it used to be. Two old throwaways and one newbie. The Russians are sending ships and China is moving in too. Japan is expected to send a fleet. Dumb Apprentice Trump went into this alone. No US Congress, no UN, no allies, and so those other Navies aren’t going there to back him up.
    North Korea is always go. The South may be gearing up. US Navy, Russian Navy, Chinese Navy and the Japanese too. This dumb boy Trump is in WAY OVER HIS HEAD. He may be Big Casino in Vegas, but he looks like a drunken tourist with a wad of cash going to play Nuclear Poker with Two Card Sharps, a crazy trigger happy kid with nothing to lose and The Last Samurai wielding a shiny new Bushido Blade.
    His Presidency may be over in the First 100 days.

    • thegeorgespyman

      The age of the ships is not really pertinent. It is the aircraft and the ordnance that gets the job done. Any one of them could level a lot of North Korea or anywhere else really. It would be best to not start a war, but sometimes there’s no way out of a fight. Most all other navies are technically inferior to the capability of the U.S. Navy. I can well imagine all hell could break loose. The only logical strategy would be to have a number two man under your control, take the head off the snake, and then you wouldn’t have to be concerned about retaliation. The North Koreans have a large army capable of driving deep into the south. The ships will be on station by next week. It won’t be dull. The last Korean war was terribly brutal. This adds a long distance component that wasn’t there before. Kim’s missiles are not that reliable. An antiquated delivery system would be to carry a nuke to U.S. ports by submarine. There were significant exercises of the California coast last week with a massive fireball in the sky. Another strategy for retaliation would be to use special forces infiltrators to attack the power grid.

      • J.j. Cintia

        Yeah no. You don’t know what you’re talking about. The Carl Vinson is overdue for the scrapyard and the Nimitz should be at the end of her service life too. The USS Reagan is the only new flattop. The Gulf War and Iraq War shows you cannot win with just Air Power. North Korea’s Million Man Army is nowhere near as bad and poor morale as the Iraqis were. Obama spent 8 years cutting Defense, the only cuts he actually made. The US Military is in no shape for a prolonged battle now. Russia and China have been making big purchases and improvements to their military the past ten or fifteen years. Japan started re-militarizing a few years back when Obama’s cuts threatened their security. Japan is supposed to be an ally, but if Trump does something stupid that gets Japan attacked, that alliance could turn quickly.

    Interesting how we have come to the place of fearing a NK nuclear retaliation attack against any move by the U.S. today, while just a few short years ago the debate was all about whether we should allow NK to obtain nuclear missles at all!!

    Pretty soon we will be arguing about whether they will actually target the U.S. even while the missles are in flight towards the nation!!

    HELLO!! Anybody home? Did all of this take place on Obama’s 8 year “red line” watch?

    “Here in the western world, we consider it to be highly immoral to use
    chemical and biological weapons against innocent civilian populations,
    but the North Koreans do not share those moral values.”

    Americans are incredible. They launch nuclear bombs, uranium, napalm, invade countries based on lies, whatever, BUT they still think think they they are above others at a moral level, and they even lecture every other country.

    • JC Teecher

      Actually it was not approved by Americans as a whole, however; Americans were partly responsible as they chose the leaders of which approved of such actions/atrocities of the past.

      Now, the underworld/shadow gov has a new plan in place, by which the majority that were mostly responsible for a change in gov from the 100 year previous status quo, will be overtaken in the next election.

      Then the end of everything that seems normal today, will be history.
