Report: F-35s could bring down North Korean nukes headed toward US
December 8, 2017

Report: F-35s could bring down North Korean nukes headed toward US
Image Source: Screenshot
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has made himself into the great pariah of Asia. This is in no small part due to his refusal to stop testing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), including those which could carry nuclear warheads to the continental United States.

As frightening as Pyongyang’s missile systems are, test results for the F-35 stealth fighter jet has given Americans cause for hope. Namely, the F-35’s high-tech sensors could detect and track North Korean missiles, giving U.S. anti-missile defense systems a better shot at destroying the missiles while in flight.

“Tactically Significant” Development
John “Bama” Montgomery, a business development manager at Northrup Grumman, one of the largest security companies in the world, says that recently released results of a 2014 test found that the F-35’s Distributed Aperture System (DAS) could track enemy ICBMs and sync the data with anti-ballistic missile systems in South Korea, Japan, and the United States.

The DAS sensors gather data that “would help the other missile-defense gear get a targeting track on a missile more quickly, improving the odds of nailing the shot,” Defense One explains.

“You can give that information to a shooter. The shooter now has information to go and put his information in the right place. Thus, the radar doesn’t have to search. It goes, ‘I know where it is; it’s right there,” said Montgomery.

While the details of the test are classified, Montgomery says it’s a “tactically significant” development:

I can tell you right now that this system, as depicted here, really does help the ballistic missile environment.

From Villain to Hero…?

Prior to this news, the F-35 was synonymous with government waste. The U.S. Air Force initially pitched the state-of-the-art fighter jet as a do-everything fighter.

However, tests have shown over the years that the F-35 is clunky, unnecessary for counterinsurgency operations, and very expensive. So expensive, in fact, that Trump mentioned it specifically in a tweet on reducing military spending a year ago:


Donald J. Trump
✔️
@realDonaldTrump
The F-35 program and cost is out of control. Billions of dollars can and will be saved on military (and other) purchases after January 20th.

Indeed, the F-35, which began its life way back in 2001, is the most expensive defense program in history. The U.S. is expected to dump $1.5 trillion into the fighter jet program over its 55 year lifetime.

Representative Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), a long-time champion of the F-35, was one of the first to publicize the jet’s anti-ICBM capabilities. This has led some to speculate that the latest news is nothing but a ruse to convince Washington to throw more money at the failed project.

America’s Best Shot?
One of the more unfortunate aspects of America’s anti-ICBM capabilities is that the U.S. military does not yet have a fool-proof way to shoot down ICBMs once they are airborne. This means that military planners have to rely on knocking out the missiles before they leave the launch pad.

Such air attacks, even if they are successful, could lead us into a conventional war, which, in the case of war with North Korea, could cost thousands of civilian lives.

While the most recent reports about North Korea’s ICBM capabilities have tempered fears about a North Korean attack on U.S. soil, the U.S. needs more R & D success stories in order to match growing military threats from North Korea, China, and Russia. Hopefully, the F-35 will be one of them.

North Korea warns U.S. threats make war “unavoidable” on Korean peninsula

North Korea warns U.S. threats make war “unavoidable” on Korean peninsula
Large military drills being carried out by the United States and South Korea and U.S. threats of a preemptive war against Pyongyang have made the outbreak of war on the Korean peninsula “an established fact”, North Korea’s foreign ministry said. A spokesman for the North’s foreign ministry also blamed “confrontational warmongering” remarks by U.S. officials for pushing the peninsula to the brink of war.
“The remaining question now is: when will the war break out?” the spokesman said late on Wednesday in a statement carried by North Korea’s official KCNA news agency. “We do not wish for a war but shall not hide from it,” he said. Tensions on the Korean peninsula have risen markedly in recent months after North Korea’s latest missile and nuclear tests, conducted in defiance of international pressure and United Nations resolutions.

Potential War With North Korea Could Result In “Astronomical Loss Of Life”

Potential War With North Korea Could Result In “Astronomical Loss Of Life”
Buried somewhere between the latest Washington sex scandals and stern-faced journalists asking about Russian “collusion” in last year’s election is the very real possibility that the U.S. could be heading toward war with a nuclear-armed North Korea. It’s the war nobody seems to want to talk about, let alone fight. But there may not be any viable options to avoid getting into a real live shooting war with North Korea and its brassy, baby-faced dictator. With each new ballistic test, Kim Jong-Un seems to gain a level of credibility to back up his seemingly insane threats against a world superpower no longer headed not by the appeasement-driven Barack Obama but a far more unpredictable Donald Trump. On Nov. 28
the communist state successfully tested a long-range missile launch that could reach any point within the continental United States, including Washington, D.C. Japan announced it will be upgrading its missile defense systems in 2018 to compensate for North Korea’s improved missile technology. Nikkei Asian Review reported that many analysts believe Japan’s current system could have trouble dealing with high-powered missiles launched at a more lofted trajectory, a method that sacrifices range for height and a speedy descent.

Japan seeking missiles capable of striking range of North Korea

Japan seeking missiles capable of striking range of North Korea
Japan is preparing to acquire precision air-launched missiles that for the first time would give it the capability to strike North Korean missile sites, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said. Japan plans to put money aside in its next defense budget starting April to study whether its F-15 fighters could launch longer-range missiles including Lockheed Martin Corp’s extended-range Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM-ER), which can hit targets 1,000 km (620 miles) away, said one the
sources with knowledge of the plan. He said: “There is a global trend for using longer-range missiles and it is only natural that Japan would want to consider them.” The sources asked to remain anonymous as they were not authorized to talk to media. Japan is also interested in buying the 500 km-range Joint Strike Missile designed by Norway’s Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace to be carried by the F-35 stealth fighter, Fuji Television reported earlier.

UN warns of drug-resistant germs brewing in the natural environment
The UN warned Tuesday of a ticking time bomb of drug-resistant germs brewing in the natural environment, aided by humans dumping antibiotics and chemicals into the water and soil. If this continues, people will be at an even higher risk of contracting diseases, incurable by existing antibiotics, from swimming in the sea or other seemingly innocuous activities, a report warned. “Around the world,
discharge from municipal, agricultural and industrial waste in the environment means it is common to find antibiotic concentrations in many rivers, sediments and soils,” the investigation said. “It is steadily driving the evolution of resistant bacteria,” it warned bluntly. “A drug that once protected our health is now in danger of very quietly destroying it.”

United States Faces Nightmare Flu Season..Vaccine Only 10% Effective

United States Faces Nightmare Flu Season..Vaccine Only 10% Effective
America is set to endure one of the most perilous flu seasons in years – with doctors warning it could be similar to the deadly 2014 outbreak. It is becoming increasingly clear that the US will be hit by a particular strain of influenza called H3N2, the same strain which has just wreaked havoc in Australia, and was responsible for the four most deadly flu seasons in the last 10 years. Early assessments suggest
the current vaccine – which was produced in spring after scientists made an educated guess at what strain to expect – will be just 10 percent effective. While some seasons don’t kick off until February, we are already seeing a surge in people hospitalized with influenza-like symptoms – at a rate even faster and earlier than we saw in 2014. ‘I’m anticipating this being a bad flu year,’ infectious diseases specialist Dr Pritish Tosh, of the Mayo Clinic, told Daily Mail Online.

Rabbi Warns Rare 9-Hour Rainbow in Taiwan ‘Sign of Our Dangerous Times’

Rabbi Warns Rare 9-Hour Rainbow in Taiwan ‘Sign of Our Dangerous Times’
A new record was set last Thursday when two scientists in Taiwan recorded a rainbow that lasted an incredible nine hours. Chou Kun-hsuan and Liu Ching-huang, both professors in the Department of Atmospheric Science at the Chinese Culture University, were observing a rainbow for their studies last week when gradually, they realized that something very unusual was going on. Rainbows typically last much less than an hour, so they were shocked when the colorful phenomenon they were watching so carefully failed to dissipate. According to Chou, the rainbow started at 6:57 AM and lasted until 3:55 PM,
or 8 hours and 58 minutes. If confirmed, this will shatter the previous record set in Wetherby in Yorkshire, United Kingdom on March 14, 1994, which was recorded as lasting from 9 AM to 3 PM, or 6 hours. Rainbows are a powerful symbol in the Torah, the postdiluvian sign of God’s promise to Noah that He would never again destroy the world through flooding. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between Hashem and all living creatures, all flesh that is on earth. Genesis 9:16.

Imports From China Hit Record High As U.S. Trade Deficit Continues To Explode

Imports From China Hit Record High As U.S. Trade Deficit Continues To Explode
(By Michael Snyder) It should upset you that virtually everything stocking the shelves of our major retailers seems to have been made somewhere else. As a nation, we are consuming far more wealth than we are producing, and that is a recipe for national economic suicide. This week we learned that imports from China hit an all-time record high in October, and that was one of the primary reasons why our trade deficit hit a staggering 48.7 billion dollars during that month. Year after year we buy far more stuff from the rest of the world than they buy from us, and this is systematically impoverishing us. Let me put this another way.
The amount of money that leaves our country each month is far greater than the amount of money that comes into it. When you grasp this concept, it becomes easy to understand why major exporting nations such as China have become so wealthy, and why we are drowning in debt. Sadly, most Americans don’t understand the trade deficit, and so they don’t understand how important news like this really is. The following comes from Bloomberg… The U.S. trade deficit widened in October to a nine-month high on record imports that reflect steady domestic demand, Commerce Department data showed Tuesday.

Islamist suicide plot to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May foiled
A terror plot to assassinate Prime Minister Theresa May has been foiled, Sky sources have confirmed. Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: “It’s the latest in a number of terror plots that police and MI5 believe they’ve foiled this year. “I understand that the head of MI5, Andrew Parker, briefed Cabinet ministers today, such is the seriousness of what they believed they have uncovered. “It is in essence an
extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street. Essentially police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May, the Prime Minister. “This is something which has been pursued over several weeks at least by Scotland Yard, MI5 and West Midlands Police. “It came to a head last week with the arrest of two men, by armed police, who were charged with preparing acts of terrorism.”

BREAKING NEWS: Trump to forge ahead with relocating US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

BREAKING NEWS: Trump to forge ahead with relocating US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
President Trump on Wednesday will order the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, senior administration officials said, a move that fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives but one that could inflame tensions across the Middle East. In his announcement, Trump will say that the U.S. government recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. One official described it as an “honest” acknowledgment of a “seven-decade-old fact.” “While
President Trump recognizes that the status of Jerusalem is a highly sensitive issue, he does not think it will be resolved by ignoring the simple truth that Jerusalem is home to Israel’s legislature, its Supreme Court, the prime minister and is such the capital of Israel,” one official said. The U.S. would be the first country to move its embassy to Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israelis and Palestinians. Other countries who have diplomatic relations with Israel keep their embassies in Tel Aviv.

Trump’s Jerusalem endorsement may include two-state support
Endorsement of a two-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could follow US President Donald Trump pending announcement that he is relocating the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, three US officials said in a late night briefing to the media on Tuesday. They spoke in advance of Trump’s expected Wednesday afternoon speech, in which he plans to overturn almost 70
years of US policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city. “US policy is going, to be honest about the fact, a seven-decade-old fact, that Jerusalem is [Israel’s] capital and bring US policy fundamentally in-line with that fact,” the officials said. To underscore that new policy understanding Trump will also direct the State Department to create a plan relocate the embassy to a site in Jerusalem, the officials said, adding that it could take at least four years to execute the move.

California sued because too many children can’t read
A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools filed a lawsuit against the state of California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of school children who do not know how to read. The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its
“literacy crisis.” The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, according to the lawsuit. “When it comes to literacy and the delivery of basic education, California is dragging down the nation,” said Public Counsel lawyer Mark Rosenbaum, who filed the lawsuit along with the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

U.S. Braces for Violence at Embassies Around Muslim World as Donald Trump Nears Jerusalem Move
The U.S. government’s diplomatic staff braced for violent protests around the Muslim world as speculation mounted that President Donald Trump planned to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel’s capital. Trump’s stated intention to relocate the embassy has been met with anger in the Arab world for months. The move is controversial due to the city’s significance to Jews, Muslims and Christians. Diplomats fear these tensions will come to a head if
Trump follows through on his campaign pledge. The warning of violence came in the form of two classified cables to staff in the past week, according to Politico. The State Department had not responded to a request for comment at the time of writing. Employees at the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, and the U.S. consulate in Istanbul declined to comment on the matter. Jerusalem police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld was not available for comment.

First Icelandic Pagan Temple in 1,000 Years Built in Iceland

First Icelandic Pagan Temple in 1,000 Years Built in Iceland
“On that day, men shall fling away, to the flying foxes and the bats, the idols of silver and the idols of gold which they made for worshiping.” (Isaiah 2:20)
As the pagan Norse religion makes a roaring comeback in Iceland, the Asatru Society is expected to finish construction of a new temple – the first structure dedicated to the Norse god Odin in over one thousand years. The Icelandic Ásatrú religion follows the belief systems of the Old Norse religion, or Germanic neo-paganism. The followers worship the ancient Norse gods such as Ódin, Thor and Freyja. There have been no temples to the Norse gods in Iceland for over 900 years, but in 2015, the Ásatrú
Society, re-established in 1972, began construction on a modern temple in Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. It is expected to be ready for use sometime this summer at a final cost of around $1.25 million. The pagan religion is making a comeback in Iceland, necessitating the construction of the new facility. Established 45 years ago by farmer Sveinbjörn Beinteinsson, the Ásatrú Society initially had 12 members. According to the National Bureau of Statistics in Iceland, there were 2,382 members in 2014; today there are 3,583 members.

Evangelical Support for Israel Declining, Especially Among Millennials

Evangelical Support for Israel Declining, Especially Among Millennials
Support for Israel is decreasing among evangelical Christians, particularly among younger generations, a new survey shows a decline borne out of confusion about or indifference to the world’s only Jewish state. Seventy-seven percent of evangelicals ages 65 and older say they support the existence, security and prosperity of Israel, according to a LifeWay Research survey released Monday. Only 58 percent of evangelicals ages 18 to 34 say the same.
The survey was conducted using a web-based utility, a probability-based panel designed to be representative of the American population, measuring the attitudes of 2,002 evangelicals pertaining to Israel from Sept. 20–28. “For the most part, younger evangelicals are indifferent about Israel,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. Some say such indifference is the result of how young people view recent geopolitical events and conflicts in the region.

POWDER KEG: Palestinians call for three days of rage over Trump’s decision on Jerusalem …
The Palestinian factions announced three days of rage from Wednesday to Friday in protest of US President Donald Trump’s announcement to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the American embassy from Tel Aviv. The Palestinian factions called President Trump’s policy “political blackmail, which would destroy his ability to achieve regional or colonialist achievements in the region.”
In a joint statement, the Palestinian “national and Islamic forces” announced three days of rage that
would begin Wednesday and end on Friday. “We call on all our people in Israel and around the world to gather in city centers and Israeli embassies and consulates, with the aim of bringing about general popular anger,” the statement said. The statement added that “a huge protest should be launched in order to reject out of hand the attempts of the US administration to transfer the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem or recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

Trump Informs Abbas He Intends to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
U.S. President Donald Trump informed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Jordan’s King Abdullah that he plans to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Tuesday, according to Abbas’ spokesman and Jordanian reports. Trump also called Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi to inform him of the decision. Abbas warned Trump in response that the action will have “dangerous consequences,” says Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh. Abu Rudeineh said “the
Palestinian stance is determined and steadfast – there will not be a Palestinian state without East Jerusalem as its capital according to decisions by the international community. Abu Mazen [Abbas] is now holding an emergency meeting in his bureau following the phone conversation with Trump.” Following the call, Abbas urged Pope Francis as well as French and Jordanian leaders to intervene on Trump’s plan to move the embassy.

Scientists and residents on edge waiting for imminent volcanic eruption in Indonesia
The question Indonesian volcanologist Devy Kamil Syahbana gets most is the one he cannot answer – when, or if, rumbling Mount Agung on Bali island will blow up in a major eruption. The 3,000 metre (9,800 ft) Agung – a so-called strato-volcano capable of very violent eruptions – has recorded a sharp rise in activity that has raised worries about a repeat of a 1963 eruption that killed more than 1,000 people.
“There’s no instrument in the world that can estimate precisely when there will be a major eruption,” said Syahbana, who runs an observatory monitoring the towering volcano, just outside a 10-km exclusion zone. Sensors beeped and walkie-talkies crackled he spoke to Reuters at the monitoring station.

GOOGLE supercomputer creates its own ‘AI Child’…
The tech giant’s computer-made system known as NASNet is able to identify objects, such as people and cars, in photos and videos. According to studies, the Google “brain” can pick out these objects with a 82.7% accuracy rate – something the company says is better than any man-made AI system. And the AI breakthrough will have a huge impact on the entire field. Experts have said the findings show automation is the key to creating the most accurate AI systems – meaning Artificial Intelligence would
actually create more AI. NASNet itself was actually created earlier this year AutoML, which is an AI system capable of creating more learning programmes. The Google Brain team, which developed the mother system AutoML, said: “We hope that the larger machine learning community will be able to build on these models to address multitudes of computer vision problems we have not yet imagined.” But ethical concerns have been raised about the invention of such powerful machines.

Turkey warns recognition of Jerusalem as capital is “Red Line” For Muslims

Turkey warns recognition of Jerusalem as capital is “Red Line” For Muslims
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be a “red line” for Muslims. He also warned such a step would force Ankara to cut diplomatic ties with the Jewish state. “This could go as far as cutting our diplomatic relations with Israel. You cannot take such a step,” Erdogan told a parliamentary group meeting of his ruling Justice and Development Party. The Turkish president also said he would call for a meeting with the Organization
for Islamic Cooperation to oppose any move recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. He said the measure would not only be a violation of international law, but also “a big blow to the conscience of the humanity.” US President Donald Trump was expected to weigh in on the sensitive foreign policy matter Monday, but public warnings from allies and private phone calls between world leaders led to the White House delaying its decision. Turkey has been a vocal critic of the proposed move. READ MORE https://www.rt.com/news/411969-erdogan-jerusalem-israel-red-line/

150 structures destroyed, 27,000 people evacuated in raging CA wildfire

150 structures destroyed, 27,000 people evacuated in raging CA wildfire
fast-moving, wind-fueled wildfire swept into the city of Ventura early Tuesday, burning 31,000 acres, destroying homes and forcing 27,000 people to evacuate. About 150 structures — including at least one large apartment complex — were consumed by flames, and much more were threatened as the fire crept about a quarter mile away from City Hall.

150 structures destroyed, 27,000 people evacuated in raging CA wildfire
fast-moving, wind-fueled wildfire swept into the city of Ventura early Tuesday, burning 31,000 acres, destroying homes and forcing 27,000 people to evacuate. About 150 structures — including at least one large apartment complex — were consumed by flames, and much more were threatened as the fire crept about a quarter mile away from City Hall. Engulfed in flames, the Hawaiian Village Apartments collapsed about 4 a.m. Residents watched with their cameras and cell phones out, the sound of propane
tanks bursting filled the air. Hundreds of firefighters working through the night tried to prevent the blaze from spreading, block by block, as they were confronted by wind gusts of up to 50 mph.

Kim Jong-Un Warns Trump Begging For World War 3 With Joint Drills

Kim Jong-Un Warns Trump Begging For World War 3 With Joint Drills
KCNA has branded the US and South Korea as “foolish” and said the latest staged attack on their regime could “lead to a nuclear war at any moment.” The Kim Jong-un mouthpiece said: “More than 230 fighters…including the ultramodern stealth fighters F-22 Raptor, F-35A, F-35B…and over tens of thousands of troops including 12 000 US troops are to be involved in the drill. “Such drill is a dangerous provocation as it is driving the tension on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war. It is an
open, all-out provocation against the DPRK, which may lead to a nuclear war any moment. “The US and the south Korean puppet forces are so foolish as to run amok with such stealth fighters. The stealth fighters which the enemies boast so much of will not escape the fate of a tiger moth.” Their response comes after fighter jets arrived in South Korea for a joint air drill between Seoul and Washington in a show of force against Kim Jong-un’s North Korea.

China Calls for Tight Control of Internet, Is America Next?
Little heard from but hugely influential, the professor-turned-Communist theoretician who has been a major adviser to three Chinese leaders finally stepped out of the shadows on Sunday. Known as the brain behind President Xi Jinping, Wang Huning made his first major speech since joining the Politburo Standing Committee, the seven-member group that rules China, at a conference created to show off the country’s technological strengths to the world. Well known for his icy remove and support of
authoritarianism, Mr. Wang called for security and order on the internet as part of five proposals he made to guide the future of cyberspace. He also emphasized China’s technological prowess and said more should be done by the government to guide the development of new industries like artificial intelligence and quantum computing. Mr. Wang stepped onto the world stage before an audience that included Tim Cook, the chief executive of Apple, along with an all-star cast of Chinese tech entrepreneurs, such as Jack Ma of Alibaba.

Russia and China building space weapons to target US satellites

Russia and China building space weapons to target US satellites
A senior US general said Saturday that countries like Russia and China are actively building weapons that can target space-based US military assets like satellites. “They’ve been building weapons, testing weapons, building weapons to operate from the earth in space, jamming weapons, laser weapons, and they have not kept it secret,” Gen. John Hyten, the head of US Strategic Command, told an audience at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California. “They’re building those capabilities to
challenge the United States of America, to challenge our allies, and to change the balance of power in the world,” added Hyten, who oversees all US military operations in space. “We cannot allow that to happen. Russia and China saw how the US military made successful use of satellites during military operations like the 1991 Gulf War and now seek ways to deny the US the ability to use satellites in future conflicts, Hyten said.

Attack siren blares in Hawaii for first time since Cold War…
A siren blared across Hawaii on Friday for the first time since the end of the Cold War in an effort to prepare tourists and residents for a possible nuclear attack from North Korea. The state is the first to bring back the Cold War-era warning system, Hawaii emergency management officials said. The wailing siren sounded for a minute after the usual testing of the steady alert for tsunamis and other natural disasters that Hawaii residents are used to hearing. There was little reaction from people on famous Waikiki Beach, where the test sounded like a distant siren.
“We believe that it is imperative that we be prepared for every disaster, and in today’s world, that includes a nuclear attack,” Gov. David Ige said this week, adding that the possibility of a strike is remote.Ige said the new test will ensure the public knows what they should do in case of an imminent attack. If a missile is launched, residents and tourists would have less than 20 minutes to take shelter, officials said.

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia Warns US that North Korea Will Not Back Down!

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia Warns US that North Korea Will Not Back Down!
North Korea will not back down from building its nuclear arsenal and any attempts to force Kim Jong-un would be like “playing with fire”, Russia has warned the United States today. North Korea refuse to even entertain talks about scaling back their missile programme, a Russian delegation has revealed. The Russian group issued the warning after returning from a trip to Pyongyang today. The lawmakers said
North Korea will not disarm and is fully prepared to resort to nuclear war. Svetlana Maximova said: “They said they won’t disarm, there cannot even be any talk of that.” Another member of the delegation said North Korea wants to “live normally” but would not flinch from all-out war. Kazbek Taisayev said: “They do not want war, they want to live normally. “But if there is a threat from the United States, then they are morally ready for that war.” READ MORE https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/886991/north-korea-news-missile-attack-usa-russia-war

North Korea’s New Missile Is Bigger and More Powerful
Nov 30, 2017 | 0 |
North Korea’s New Missile Is Bigger and More Powerful
The intercontinental ballistic missile North Korea launched this week was a new type of missile bigger and more powerful than any the country had tested before, South Korean officials said on Thursday. Photos from the North’s official Korean Central News Agency are providing valuable clues about the capabilities of the missile, named the Hwasong-15. North Korea said it carried a “super-large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the U.S.”

North Korea’s Hwasong series represents the most successful and formidable part of its ballistic missile arsenal, and photographs of the test suggested improvements over the Hwasong-14, a missile first tested over the summer that showed the country’s capacity to strike the continental United States.“We believe this is a new type of missile,” said Roh Jae-cheon, a spokesman for the South Korean military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff. “It looks clearly different from the Hwasong-14 in the external looks of its nose cone, the linkage between its first and second stages, and its overall size.”

US troops begin training for ‘Chemical War’ on the North Korea border
Two Kilometers from the North Korea border US troops are preparing for a “chemical war” as they remain on heightened alert amid ongoing World War 3 threats.  North Korea terrified the world when the hermit nation refused to drop its ambition to create an arsenal of deadly weapons. The rogue state’s despot leader Kim Jong-un became entangled in a furious war of words with US President Donald Trump, with both Pyongyang and Washington threatening to attack one another. With the threat of
World War 3 looming, Mr Trump’s Administration has increased its military presence in South Korea and Asia. Video captured by Channel 9’s 60 Minutes programme shows US troops training within eyeshot as a blatant warning to Kim Jong-un. The programme’s host Tom Steinfort said: “We hear so much about the prospect of a nuclear attack but it is actually conventional warfare that is much more likely at first.

China and Russia prepare to Shoot down US missiles in North Korea stand-off
China and Russia are preparing to shoot down US missiles as tensions mount over North Korea. The two states will hold anti-missile drills in Beijing next month as fears continue that Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions could spark World War 3. China and Russia have both opposed to the basing of the cutting-edge US Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in South Korea, Seoul and Washington
insist the system is required to defend against the threat of North Korean missiles. But China, along with Russia, has repeatedly expressed opposition to the deployment, saying it will do nothing to help ease tension with Kim Jong-un’s saber-rattling regime. China also fears THAAD’s powerful radar system can look deep into is territory, undermining its security. China’s Defence Ministry said in a statement that drills would take place from December 11 to December 16.

Words Of Christ Coming To Pass With Global Wars and Conflicts Mounting
Nov 15, 2017 | 0 |
Words Of Christ Coming To Pass With Global Wars and Conflicts Mounting
One of the things that Jesus told us to pay attention to regarding the “End Times” was the increase in global conflicts prior to his second return. In the book of Matthew, he tells us: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” – Matthew 24:6-7
Now according to a new report from the Express, World War 3 fears are spreading around the globe as nations fall into political, diplomatic and financial crisis. I believe this new report once again shows us how truly close we are to the end of the age. A comprehensive global conflict map shows where tourists would encounter danger and violence across the world, including North Korea and the Middle East. But the conflict zones are not constricted the Middle East, with Africa and Asia also being deemed as unsafe.
North Korea is naturally included on the map as the country’s aggressive nuclear testing campaign threatens to spark World War 3. Air raid sirens rang out across North Korea’s capital city, Pyongyang, over the weekend as the country forces its citizens to prepare for the possibility of conflict. While Kim Jong-un’s war of words with world leaders such as Donald Trump have made the global geopolitical climate increasingly volatile.

Alaska urged to prepare for nuke attack, Residents told to have emergency food and water

Alaska urged to prepare for nuke attack, Residents told to have emergency food and water
Alaska is being urged to prepare for a North Korean nuclear attack – amid fears that a warhead ‘could reach residents in 20 minutes’. The country will NOT attempt evacuations if maniac despot Kim Jong-un fires a nuclear missile, emergency planners have warned. Jeremy Zidek, from the state’s disaster planning team, urged locals to shelter in place should an attack happen – rather than risk being caught in the open for the blast.
He also urged families to have an emergency stash of food and water, flashlights, and radios. And while he insisted that Alaska was an unlikely target for a nuclear strike, Mr Zidek admitted that the state’s defensive facilities could be picked for an attack. Alaska is home to Fort Greely, where the US has interceptor rockets designed to destroy incoming intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

North Korea mapping specific plan for ‘devastating’ EMP strike

North Korea mapping specific plan for ‘devastating’ EMP strike
Only a few weeks after a team of experts warned Congress that the nation faces an “existential threat” from North Korea from a possible electromagnetic pulse attack, a new report says the rogue nation is mapping a specific plan. Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner wrote in his “Washington Secrets” column that the White House “is being warned that North Korea is mapping plans for a ‘devastating’ attack on the United States with an atmospheric nuclear explosion that would disable the nation’s electric grid, potentially leading to the deaths of virtually all impacted.” He said President
Trump “is being urged to create a special commission to tackle the potential for an electromagnetic pulse attack, one similar to the iconic Manhattan Project.” Bedard cited Marine Corps veteran Tommy Waller, an advocate for an EMP commission, now the director of special projects at the Center for Security Policy. “The first and foremost thing he must write is an executive order establishing his own EMP commission in the White House – a task force that draws from the experience of the previous EMP Commission,” Waller wrote.

BREAKING: US & So.Korea Make Massive Military Move, This Is Powerful
November 11, 2017 Jeff Charles
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/us-skorea-make-military-move/President Donald Trump just announced a new strategic military move. Kim Jong-un will not be happy about this.

On Saturday, the United States and South Korea began joint naval exercises that will involve three US aircraft carriers in what is designed to be a harsh warning to North Korea. The Associated Press reports that the drills will last for four days and will be held off South Korea’s eastern coast.

Currently, President Trump is on a tour of Asia. Each of the countries he is visiting have capital cities within the range of a potential North Korean missile strike. The rogue regime is the main topic of conversation between Trump and the other world leaders.

According to The Associated Press, the USS Ronald Reagan, Theodore Roosevelt, and Nimitz will enter the area throughout the course of the drills, which will last until Tuesday. The warships will be together in the drills on Monday.

Additionally, the exercises will include eleven US Aegis ships and seven South Korean naval vessels. Aegis technology is used for missile tracking and guidance.

They will aim to enhance combined operation and aerial strike capabilities and also display “strong will and firm military readiness to defeat any provocation by North Korea with dominant force in the event of crisis,” South Korea’s military said in a statement.

These exercises mark the first time since 2007 that the three US carrier strike groups are operating together in the area of the Western Pacific. The US Navy is also expected to participate in exercises with three Japanese destroyers on Sunday.

In addition to the naval fleet, the US has also sent other assets, including long-range bombers, to the region to patrol the area and conduct drills. This is a direct response to Pyongyang’s continued efforts to build a more powerful nuclear weapons program.

This year, Pyongyang conducted numerous tests of is intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) program. It was discovered that the regime had developed missiles that could potentially reach the United States homeland. Recently, they conducted their most powerful nuclear test, but they have not yet acquired the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on one of their missiles.

President Trump and dictator Kim Jong-un have engaged in harsh rhetoric since the American president took office in January. The two leaders have exchanged repeated threats. Recently, the United States, the United Nations, and China have imposed historically harsh sanctions against Pyongyang. There is evidence that these sanctions might be taking their toll.

Kim Jong-un has increased his saber-rattling with a litany of missile tests. Are the US and South Korea right to be prepared for military action?

POLL: Will Kim Jong-un Bow to US Military Might?

No

During his Asia trip, President Trump issued some stern warnings to the Kim regime. In a speech to business leaders at the APEC summit in Vietnam, he stated that the region “must not be held hostage to a dictator’s twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail.”

He also sent a clear message to the North Korean regime: “Do not underestimate us. And do not try us.” President Trump did, however, urge Kim to consider negotiations that would result in a peaceful outcome for all. The regime has not responded kindly to President Trump’s words, and continues their aggressive nature — for now.

Trump warns North Korea’s Kim Jong-un: ‘Don’t try us’
Donald Trump has delivered a stark personal message to Kim Jong-un, saying North Korea will face disaster unless he gives up his nuclear ambitions. Speaking in front of lawmakers at South Korea’s national assembly, the US president offered a “brighter path” if Pyongyang abandoned its weapons programme, leaving the door open to diplomacy, but also warned that the US was prepared to use military means if necessary.
“The weapons that you are acquiring are not making you safer, they are putting your regime in grave danger,” he said. “Every step you take down this dark path increases the peril you face.” Trump has spent two days in South Korea as part of his 12-day tour of east Asia. Addressing Kim directly, he said “despite every crime you have committed against God and man”, the US was prepared to resolve the crisis diplomatically.

18 Million could starve to death as Kim uses funds for nuclear regime
North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has been accused of diverting cash to fund nuclear missile development while 18 million people edge closer to death due to a devastating drought. United Nations chiefs will visit the country urgently before it is too late to “make the case very clearly that innocent children should not starve to death”. David Beasley, head of the UN World Food programme, revealed the plans as he
blamed the portly leader for plowing money into his growing nuclear programme instead of helping his 18 million citizens who are “food insecure”. Of those, 200,000 children are suffering from acute malnutrition, according to UNICEF. Mr Beasley said: “I think the North Korean government understands, as I have made it clear, that Western donors don’t feel comfortable giving because money that they think should be helping children is being used to build a nuclear programme.”

North Korea demands US to remove Trump or face ‘abyss of doom’
North Korea has demanded the USA removes “lunatic old man” Donald Trump from power or face World War 3. Despot leader Kim Jong-un used his state media mouthpiece to urge the removal of the US President, after he made stern threats today during a visit to South Korea. Using some of his strongest language against North Korea yet, Donald Trump told the hermit state he would “not allow
American cities to be threatened with destruction. We will not be intimidated”. He claimed people in North Korea were suffering human rights abuses in “gulags” and some bribed government officials to work as “slaves” overseas rather than live under Kim Jong-un’s rule. In a fiery response, North Korea’s state media agency KCNA said: “The world is undergoing unprecedented throes because of Trump, a notorious ‘political heretic’.

Is Military Invasion The Only Answer To Stop North Korea?
North Korea and Kim Jong-un’s nuclear threat will not be quashed unless Donald Trump invades the rogue state, according to shock warnings from an international lawyer. North Korea has ignored international condemnation and continued its efforts to push forward and create a deadly arsenal of nuclear weapons. US President Donald Trump has used his tour of Asia to put more pressure on Kim
Jong-un amid fears of the potential breakout of World War 3. However, David Tafuri, an international lawyer, has suggested an aerial campaign against North Korea may not be sufficient to end its nuclear threat. Mr Tafuri told Fox News: “The conundrum with North Korea is our normal ways of solving a problem with a foreign country, like diplomacy and sanctions, have not worked so far.

Saudi Arabia blockades Yemen after attack which could be an ‘act of war’ by Iran
A coalition led by Saudi Arabia have closed all ground, air and sea access to Yemen following a rocket attack on Riyadh, claim reports. The missile attack, thought to have been launched by Houthi fighters, was manufactured by Iran, Saudi Arabia claimed. They said the attack was a “clear act of aggression” by Iran and “could rise to be considered an act of war”. In a statement, Saudi Arabia accused Iran of
supplying the missile to Houthi rebels. The kingdom said the closures would be temporary and take into account the work of humanitarian organizations. Iran has denied arming the Houthi militants and suggested that the ballistic missile was locally produced. More than 10,000 people have died and more are threatened with famine as war rages between a Saudi-led coalition and Shiite rebels.

North Korea is nearly totally surrounded by a wall of US warships, bombers, and missiles with more than 80,000 soldiers on alert as Donald Trump heads for Asia. The US President is jetting into the Pacific this week for a whistle-stop tour of the nations surrounding North Korea. Trump will be popping in for one-on-one meetings with the leaders of China, South Korea, and Japan – with Kim Jong-un’s nukes right at the top of the agenda.
At his back with what looks to be the world’s largest military war machine – poised to strike should the crisis go south with North Korea. He visited the US Pacific Command just days ago – who will oversee every single vessel, plane, and soldier sitting in a ring of steel around Kim. Daily Star Online can now reveal the monstrous arsenal at Trump’s fingertips as he faces down North Korea.

North Korea is feared to be ready for missile test tonight in a final warning to Donald Trump as he arrives on Kim’s doorstep. Trump will bet jetting into South Korea today on his tour of Asia – set for a one-on-one chat with President Moon Jae-in. The US President will be in Seoul, which is just 35 miles from the border with North Korea and just 120 miles from the capital Pyongyang. Spooks now fear the
rogue state will be planning a massive missile launch to send a message to Trump as he gets the closest he has ever been to Kim. Missile movements have been detected across North Korea, while US and South Korean spy planes have been working overtime as they try to sniff out what Kim is up to. War fears have reached an all-time high this year as the two powers square-up to each other promising nuclear annihilation.

RUMORS OF WAR: Is Saudi Arabia Heading For War With Iran?
(By Michael Snyder) Is a major war in the Middle East looming on the horizon? Most of us living in the western world simply do not realize how much Saudi Arabia and Iran truly hate one another. Saudi Arabia is the global center for Sunni Islam, and Iran is the global center for Shia Islam, and the two major sects of Islam have a history of bad blood that literally goes back for over a thousand years. The Saudis and the Iranians are already engaged in “proxy wars” in Syria and in Yemen, and now a missile that was fired at Riyadh’s international airport threatens to turn the conflict between the two regional powers into a hot war. If you
are tempted to think that I am exaggerating one bit, just consider what the New York Times is saying about this… Saudi Arabia charged Monday that Iran had committed “a blatant act of military aggression” by providing its Yemeni allies with a missile fired at the Saudi capital over the weekend, raising the threat of a direct military clash between the two regional heavyweights. The accusations represent a new peak in tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran at a time when they are already fighting proxy wars in Yemen and Syria, as well as battles for political power in Iraq and Lebanon. And Yahoo is reporting that the Saudis are saying that this missile attack “may amount to an act of war”…

U.S. to launch drill with three carriers as Trump visits Asia

U.S. to launch drill with three carriers as Trump visits Asia
Three U.S. aircraft carrier strike groups will exercise together in the Western Pacific in the coming days in a rare show of force as President Donald Trump visits Asia with warnings about the nuclear threat from North Korea, U.S. officials say. U.S. officials have previously said the drill was under consideration and that planning was underway. The decision to soon go forward with the exercise in the Western Pacific has not been previously published. The drill will include the aircraft carriers USS Nimitz, the
Ronald Reagan, the Theodore Roosevelt and their accompanying warships. Three U.S. aircraft carrier strike groups have not exercised together in the region since 2007. The four officials who discussed the drill with Reuters spoke on condition of anonymity and did not disclose the precise date or location of the exercise. The Pentagon and the Navy’s Pacific Fleet declined to comment on future operations. Reuters was not aware of any plans for Trump to visit the carriers.

BREAKING: Trump Makes Surprise Putin Announcement
November 5, 2017

BREAKING: Trump Makes Surprise Putin Announcement
Gage Skidmore / CCL; Image Source: Screenshot
President Donald Trump has arrived in Japan as part of his first presidential tour of Asia, a trip on which he is also expected to visit South Korea, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. During the 13-day tour, Trump announced he may meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

“I think it’s expected we’ll meet with Putin, yeah,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on his way to Japan.

“We want Putin’s help on North Korea, and we’ll be meeting with a lot of different leaders,” he continued.

A Common Enemy
The face to face meeting would likely happen in Vietnam later this week at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Da Nang, Vietnam, amid heightening global tensions around the North Korea crisis.

A senior White House official told reporters in Tokyo that North Korea would be a “primary subject” of conversation if Trump and Putin meet, saying:

Russia borders North Korea. They also are very concerned, I think, with the direction North Korea is leading the region toward, into this crisis. And naturally, Russia should have a role in that future. Russia has obligations as a UN member to upholding United Nations Security Council resolutions…including the sanctions passed earlier this year.
Uniting Asia
Putin will be just one of the world leaders Trump hopes to encourage into a more aggressive stance against Pyongyang during his 13-day international tour. Prior to the stop in Vietnam, Trump will have already met with U.S. allies in the region to ramp up pressure on the North Korean regime.

He is scheduled to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and Chinese President Xi Jingping before arriving in Da Nang.

Trump even said that he’d “be open” to meeting with the North Korean dictator in an interview this morning, although he qualified that it was unlikely to happen anytime soon.

I would sit down with anybody. I don’t think it’s strength or weakness, I think sitting down with people is not a bad thing.

So I would certainly be open to doing that but we’ll see where it goes, I think we’re far too early.
In light of a new and troubling report from the Pentagon, the pressure to resolve the North Korea threat is increasing.

According to the letter, written by Rear Adm. Michael J. Dumont, “the only way to locate and secure all of North Korea’s nuclear weapons sites ‘with complete certainty’ is through an invasion of ground forces, and in the event of conflict, Pyongyang could use biological and chemical weapons,” reported The Washington Post.

Trump’s move to reach out to the Kremlin at a time of heightened aggression from North Korea is a strategic move forward in navigating the U.S. through the new Pacific theater.

Securing North Korean nuclear sites would require a ground invasion
The only way to locate and secure all of North Korea’s nuclear weapons sites “with complete certainty” is through an invasion of U.S. ground forces, and in the event of conflict, Pyongyang could use biological and chemical weapons, the Pentagon told lawmakers in a new, blunt assessment of what war on the Korean Peninsula might look like. The Pentagon, in a letter to lawmakers, said that a full discussion of U.S. capabilities to “counter North Korea’s ability to respond with a nuclear weapon and to eliminate
North Korea’s nuclear weapons located in deeply buried, underground facilities” is best suited for a classified briefing. The letter also said that Pentagon leaders “assess that North Korea may consider the use of biological weapons” and that the country “has a long-standing chemical weapons program with the capability to produce nerve, blister, blood and choking agents.”

Concerns Of North Korea Conducting Nuclear Test During Trump Visit

Concerns Of North Korea Conducting Nuclear Test During Trump Visit
North Korea could blow up a nuclear device or fire a ballistic missile during Donald Trump’s Asia visit, experts have warned. White House officials and Asian leaders are concerned that North Korea may attempt to disrupt President Donald Trump’s trip to Asia by conducting a missile test — or even a far more shocking atmospheric nuclear test. The feared nuclear explosion could be visible to the US

President as he tours Japan and South Kore in a defiant show of strength that could trigger World War 3. Previously North Korea conducted all testing underground, leading to a tunnel collapse that caused the death of roughly 200 nuclear workers. South Korean intelligence has detected activity at a North Korean missile facility that would be consistent with a coming test launch, South Korea’s Yonhap News agency reported earlier this week.

Saudi Arabia intercepts ballistic missile over capital
Yemen’s air force targeted King Khalid International Airport in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on Saturday with a ballistic missile, according to Yemen’s Houthi-controlled Defense Ministry. But the missile was intercepted over northeast Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Defense said in a statement carried on
Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television. Yemen’s Defense Ministry said the missile attack “shook the Saudi capital” and the operation was successful. It also said the attack was conducted using a Yemeni-made, long-range ballistic missile called the Burqan 2H. Saudi Arabia has been leading a coalition of states against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, who toppled Yemen’s internationally recognized government in 2015.

Tokyo On Edge as Kim’s Radiation Blows Toward Japan
Nuclear contamination spewing from Kim’s overused and underdeveloped military testing facilities may soon blow towards the Japanese islands; raising new concerns over last month’s collapse of the tunnels used during North Korea’s hydrogen bomb blast. Accuweather founder and Chairman Dr. Joel Myers told Fox News on Friday that prevailing winds in next week’s forecast may spread North Korea’s radioactive material to nearby countries, mainly Japan. “As winds pick up out of the northwest over the
next few days, it is possible that any radiation that leaks from the site [where the nuclear test took place] could be carried and dispersed across the Sea of Japan and even to the Japanese islands,” Myers said. “One might speculate that North Korea conducted these nuclear tests purposefully on days with light wind conditions, so that any resulting radiation leakage would remain within its borders and would go undetected internationally,” he added.

China and South Korea to hold ’emergency summit’ amid rising North Korea threat
South Korea and China have agreed to normalize all forms of cooperation and exchanges “expeditiously” following a year-long standoff over the deployment of a US anti-missile system in South Korea, the South’s foreign ministry said in a statement. The statement said: “Both sides shared the view that the strengthening of exchange and cooperation between Korea and China serves their common interests and

agreed to expeditiously bring exchange and cooperation in all areas back on a normal development track.” South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in will hold a summit meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of an upcoming summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries in Vietnam between November 10-11, a Blue House official said in a separate briefing on Tuesday.

USA and Russia send nuclear bombers to North Korea as tensions soar…
Russia and the US have flown nuclear bombers near North Korea as tensions grow over tyrant Kim Jong-un’s nuclear threats. President Donald Trump sent a nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bomber from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri on a long-range mission to the Pacific this weekend. And the Russian Defence Ministry today announced that US and Japanese jets escorted Russia’s missile-carrying Tupolev-95MS strategic bombers during flights over the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean. A
a spokesman said: “Two strategic bombers Tupolev-95MS of Russia’s Aerospace Force have carried out routine flights over international waters of the Sea of Japan and the western part of the Pacific Ocean. “At certain sections of the route the Tupolev-95MS crews were accompanied by a pair of F-18 fighters (of the US Air Force), and a pair of F-15, F-4 and F-2A fighters (of the Japanese Air Force).”

Pastor Greg Laurie Sets Record Straight About North Korea Wiping Out the US
Greg Laurie has recently come out stating that he did not say North Korea would wipe out the United States in a nuclear war. The evangelist, who often offers end-times insights, says he was misquoted in an Express UK article. Laurie set the record straight on Facebook:
I never said, “The US to be wiped out by North Korea in a nuclear war.” I said North Korea COULD attack us, and of course, that is potentially true, at least at this moment. The Bible does not mention the USA or North Korea in the end times scenario.I am simply calling believers to pray and take this all seriously. I never said, “The prophecy was revealed to me after I read the Bible.” If you listen to my message in this link, it’s clear what I said. This was a totally misleading headline.

North Korea Nuclear Tests Raise Fears of Radioactive Fallout

North Korea Nuclear Tests Raise Fears of Radioactive Fallout
Another powerful blast at North Korea’s underground nuclear test site could destabilize the area and send radioactive material into the atmosphere, the head of South Korea’s weather agency said on Monday “Should another nuclear takes place, there is that possibility,” Nam Jae-cheol, director of the Korea Meteorological Administration, told lawmakers inquiring about the potential for radioactive fallout. North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests since 2006, all of them in tunnels buried deep under
Mount Mantap in Punggye-ri, in North Hamgyong Province. Fears that the repeated nuclear explosions might be destabilizing the mountain have spread since the North’s latest and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3. The test produced between 50 and 300 kilotons of explosive energy, according to government and private estimates. In comparison, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II produced 15 kilotons.

Secretary of State warns threat of nuclear attack by North Korea “accelerating”
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Saturday the threat of nuclear missile attack by North Korea is accelerating. In remarks in Seoul with South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo at his side, Mattis accused the North of illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear programs — and vowed to defeat any attack. Mattis said North Korea engages in “outlaw” behavior and that the U.S. will never
accept a nuclear North. He added that regardless of what the North might try, it is overmatched by the firepower and cohesiveness of the decades-old U.S.-South Korean alliance. “North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbors and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs,” he said, adding that U.S.-South Korean military and diplomatic collaboration thus has taken on “a new urgency.”

Leading US Commander Warns North Korea Capable Of Striking US Mainland
North Korea has the capability to strike any state in the US according to a leading American commander who heads up a secretive military monitoring center. The man in charge of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) revealed for the first time how officials who work there monitor North Korea missile tests 24/7.
Engineers, photo experts, and intelligence analysts at the Ohio air base pour through satellite information for impending weapon tests – and analyze the results from missile launches. It comes amid escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula, as the US Defence Secretary yesterday admitted the chance of a North Korean nuclear strike was “accelerating”.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea begins mass-evacuation drills to prepare for nuclear war

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea begins mass-evacuation drills to prepare for nuclear war
North Korea has conducted rare mass-evacuation and blackout drills as fears of World War 3 breaking out continue to increase. The drills have taken place in smaller towns and cities, especially along the east coast, although there have been none in the capital Pyongyang yet. As tensions heighten between North Korea and the rest of the world, especially the US, the unprecedented drills could betray Kim Jong-un’s war fears, despite his bullish rhetoric. The unprecedented drills saw citizens practice leaving their homes
behind or blacking out their light sources in the event of a bombing campaign. Chun In-bum, a recently retired South Korean general, said he had never seen anything like this before. He said: “They must realize how serious the situation is.” However, experts are divided on whether the regime genuinely feels more threatened than before, or is simply seeking to create the perception that it wants to take care of its citizens.

Israel warns it will take military action to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons
Israel is willing to take military action to ensure that Iran never acquires nuclear weapons, according to the country’s intelligence minister. “If international efforts led these days by US President Trump don’t help stop Iran attaining nuclear capabilities, Israel will act militarily by itself,” Yisrael Katz said during a visit to Tokyo, as quoted by Reuters. “There are changes that can be made [to the agreement] to ensure
that they will never have the ability to have a nuclear weapon,” he added. Katz has asked the Japanese government to support steps led by Trump to change the historic 2015 nuclear agreement between Tehran and six world powers, which the US president declined to recertify earlier this month. Iran, however, insists its nuclear program is purely for civilian purposes and has repeatedly denied developing atomic weapons.

Donald Trump is ready for military action on North Korea, according to a Former US Army General and Defence Analyst. Donald Trump is preparing for a war on North Korea and former four-star Army General believes he was “absolutely convinced” that America will take military action. In a chilling warning, the former Army General Jack Keane said that a military option is “back on the table” for the
The United States. Responding to news that America deployed a third naval warship to the Pacific Ocean, Mr Keane said: “We want to have a credible military threat so that it becomes the fuel to help this diplomatic effort that we’re making.” The United States’ main effort is to “cut off all trade” with North Korea and also Chinese trade, said Mr Keane.

North Korea diplomat warns to take serious coming nuclear test over pacific!
The recent warning from North Korea’s foreign minister of a possible atmospheric nuclear test over the Pacific Ocean should be taken literally, a senior North Korean official told CNN in an interview aired on Wednesday. “The foreign minister is very well aware of the intentions of our supreme leader, so I think you should take his words literally,” Ri Yong Pil, a senior diplomat in North Korea’s Foreign Ministry, told CNN.
North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said last month Pyongyang may consider conducting “the most powerful detonation” of a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean amid rising tensions with the United States. The minister made the comment after President Donald Trump warned that North Korea, which has been working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the United States, would be totally destroyed if it threatened America.

DEVELOPING: Three massive ships deployed to North Korea path ahead of Trump visit
The United States has deployed two fleets of warships to the Pacific Ocean to send a message to North Korea and China ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to the region. Two US Navy aircraft carrier strike groups have arrived in the past two days, bringing the number of giant warships in the region up to three. Mr Trump will visit Asia for the first time in early November on a 12-day trip which will include
China, Japan, the Philippines, South Korea and Vietnam. USS Theodore Roosevelt and USS Nimitz, along with their cruisers, destroyers, and submarines, joined the US Navy’s 7th Fleet area of operations, which covers the eastern Indian and western Pacific oceans, the Navy confirmed. The ships’ accompanying nine cruisers and destroyers are equipped with the Aegis anti-missile system, which the US see as a key defense mechanism against any possible attack by North Korean missiles.

Russia to test new missile that can ‘penetrate any defense system in existence’…
Russia is preparing to test-launch its new generation of nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which it has claimed will be able to penetrate the US’ defensive shield. Delayed several times, the tests of the RS-28’s launch and first few seconds of flight are to be carried out at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, in Russia’s north-west, before the end of the year. The trials had been postponed because launch silos and the projectiles themselves were not ready, according to the state-controlled Sputnik
website, which cited the Kommersant newspaper. The RS-28 Sarmat, a 100-plus-ton ICBM that government-controlled media has claimed could destroy an area the size of Texas, is designed to evade missile defenses with multiple hypersonic warheads, known as MIRVs. Talking up its capabilities, state-linked Russian sites have claimed an 11,000km range, a payload of up to 15 warheads and the ability to “speed past every missile defense system in existence”.

Japan Warns North Korea Has Grown To “Unprecedented, Critical and Imminent” Level,
Japan’s defense minister asserted Monday that North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities have grown to an “unprecedented, critical and imminent” level, requiring “different responses” to the threat. The minister, Itsunori Odonera, said that this rising threat compels his country to endorse the U.S. view that “all options” must be considered, which President Donald Trump says includes possible military action.
Japan was alarmed by North Korea twice launching missiles over Japanese territory, in August and in September. Odonera’s comments, made through an interpreter, came at the outset of a so-called trilateral meeting in the Philippines with U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and South Korea’s defense minister, Song Young-moo. Each made statements about North Korea before a group of reporters and news cameras, but none took questions.

Air Force Claims Report Of Preparing Nuclear Bombers Is False
The U.S. Air Force denied a report Monday that their fleet of nuclear armed bombers are currently being readied just in case they are ordered to put the bombers back on 24-hour ready alert status for the first time in 28 years. “We are not planning or preparing to put B-52s back on alert,” Ann Stefanek, the chief of Air Force media operations at the Pentagon told The Washington Examiner Monday. Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, reportedly told Defense One in an interview during a six-day tour of Barksdale and other U.S. Air Force bases that support the nuclear mission, that the bombers were being
readied for the alert. “This is yet one more step in ensuring that we’re prepared,” Goldfein told Defense One. “I look at it more as not planning for any specific event, but more for the reality of the global situation we find ourselves in and how we ensure we’re prepared going forward.” Stefanek told The Washington Examiner, however, that “updates to facilities, exercises, and training related to the B-52 Stratofortress aircraft at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana are done routinely to ensure the service is prepared,” and a misunderstanding may have led to the Defense One report.

Could Kim Jong-un unleash killer plague in shock biowarfare attack?
North Korea is feared to be preparing for World War 3 by weaponizing the Black Death for use in a biological warfare attack. A chilling new report claims Kim Jong-un‘s regime could unleash the plague, cholera and other diseases across the US and South Korea. The document, by Harvard University’s Belfer Centre, says Pyongyang may use missiles, drones or planes to spread the deadly viruses. And it warns preparation against the devastating threat of biological warfare is “urgent and necessary”.
North Korea is thought to already have 13 pathogens in its weaponry, the researchers said, including anthrax, smallpox and yellow fever. And scientists are feared to be weaponizing the viruses in top-secret labs across the war-crazed rogue state. The report states: “While nuclear programs can be monitored by the number of nuclear tests and the success of missile tests, weaponizing and cultivating pathogens can stay invisible behind closed doors.

North Korea Says Trump is running ‘headlong into ruin’ after putting nuke bomber on 24/7 standby
North Korea has called Donald Trump a “hooligan” and a “lunatic” after the US reportedly put its nuclear bombers back on 24-hour alert for the first time since the end of the Cold War. B-52 aircraft could soon find themselves permanently laden with nuclear weapons and parked next to the runways on air bases waiting for the order to attack, it has been claimed. An editorial by North Korean government news agency KCNA said: “Dignitaries of White House, and State and Defense Departments of the US are
having a hard time cooling Trump overheated with a war fever, but only the south Korean puppet forces are fanning up the lunatic fingering a nuclear button. “Lunatic Trump is running headlong into ruin, taking America with him, and the poor puppet forces (a reference to South Korea and other US allies) are following him, at the peril of their lives.” The bizarre tirade continued: “The darkness drooping low over America is sunset, not dawn, and no force can stop America from rushing headlong into downhill after over-living its era.

WAR DRUMS: US Preparing to Put Nuclear Bombers Back on 24-Hour Alert
The U.S. Air Force is preparing to put nuclear-armed bombers back on 24-hour ready alert, a status not seen since the Cold War ended in 1991. That means the long-dormant concrete pads at the ends of this base’s 11,000-foot runway — dubbed the “Christmas tree” for their angular markings — could once again find several B-52s parked on them, laden with nuclear weapons and set to take off at a moment’s notice.
“This is yet one more step in ensuring that we’re prepared,” Gen. David Goldfein, Air Force chief of staff, said in an interview during his six-day tour of Barksdale and other U.S. Air Force bases that support the nuclear mission. “I look at it more as not planning for any specific event, but more for the reality of the global situation we find ourselves in and how we ensure we’re prepared going forward.”

Nuclear Bombers Buzz North Korea in Show of Force
The US B-1B strategic bombers flew over South Korea today as part of an air show designed to intimidate North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un. The supersonic bombers, which cost more than a quarter of a billion each, flew low over Seoul Air Base for eight minutes. The brazen show of force follows weeks of bellicose rhetoric from Kim and Trump, who threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if force to do so.
Trump is amassing warships in the region, including aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, amid fears Kim may test another nuclear weapon or ballistic missile. US war drills were ramped up this week as warships fired a barrage of shells into the sky during joint exercises with South Korea. Today Trump showcased his air capability, with his bombers conducting air-to-surface missile firing drills before appearing at the airshow in Seoul.

Could North Korea Launch Cyber Attack Against US Defense Ships?

Could North Korea Launch Cyber Attack Against US Defense Ships?
North Korea could launch a deadly missile attack on the US with the help of sophisticated hackers who could disable Trump’s heralded defense system, a cybersecurity expert has warned. Matt Morris, vice president of NexDefense, told Express.co.uk hackers from North Korea, Russia and China are now capable of adjusting US Navy ships’ GPS, sending them on a collision course with other vessels.
As well as causing confusion and chaos on board, these hacking attacks could have a far deadlier result if a ship boasting anti-missile systems was targeted. If done quickly enough, these ships could be moved from key locations, leaving North Korea with an open shot at enemy states. Mr Morris said: “These ships depend pretty heavily on GPS. The GPS was essentially telling them they were on course when in fact they were in a completely different location.

American attack helicopters mobilize in South Korea as tensions of war rise
Amerian heavy attack helicopters are being mobilized to reinforce South Korean troops amid concerns of an amphibious invasion by North Korean special forces. The south’s Maritime Counter Special Operations (MCSOF) unit is being boosted by the addition of nearly 50 Apache choppers to counter a possible attack by Kim Jong-un’s regime from the sea. The AH-64D Apaches – the same model of helicopter piloted by Prince Harry – have joined a MCSOF exercise already underway in the Yellow Sea,
to the west of the Korean Peninsula. The announcement comes as North Korean special forces have been spotted near the Northern Limit Line (NLL), the disputed maritime border between the rouge state and South Korea. The NLL has been the site of a series of aggressive acts by the north, the most recent of which was in 2010 when Kim’s navy was accused of sinking a South Korean warship and killing 46 sailors.

Putin Warns Not to Back Kim Jong Un Into a Corner
Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Thursday that North Korea must not be “backed into a corner” and urged dialogue to end its nuclear standoff with the U.S. Tensions have increased between Pyongyang and Washington in recent weeks, with President Donald Trump promising in August that North Korea would be met with “fire and fury” if it threatens the U.S. and calling Kim Jong Un, the North’s leader, “rocket man” in a speech at the U.N. last month. Putin did not mention the U.S.
specifically on Thursday, but warned of the growing possibility of conflict and pointed out that North Korea is a “sovereign country.” “Problems should be solved in dialogue, and North Korea should not be backed into a corner,” Putin said in a speech to the elite of Russia’s foreign policy establishment and foreign guests at a meeting organized by the Valdai Discussion Club near the Black Sea resort of Sochi. A series of missile and nuclear tests has rattled North Korea’s neighbors. The U.S. has responded with sanctions.

CIA chief warns North Korea will be able to nuke U.S. within ‘months’

CIA chief warns North Korea will be able to nuke U.S. within ‘months’
RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea could acquire the ability to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States within “months,” a top American spy official said Thursday. “It is the case that they are close enough now in their capabilities that from a U.S. policy perspective, we ought to behave as if we are on the cusp of them achieving that objective,” Pompeo said during a question-and-answer session hosted by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
“When you’re now talking about months, our capacity to understand that at the detailed level is in some sense irrelevant,” he said. “Whether it happens on Tuesday or a month from Tuesday, we are at a time where the president has concluded that we need a global effort to ensure that Kim Jong Un doesn’t have that capacity.” Pompeo’s artful assessment didn’t disguise the urgency of the North Korea nuclear threat, as he allowed that “intelligence is imperfect” but emphasized that every nuclear weapon or ballistic missile test heightens the danger posed by the regime.
