NEWSTrump Orders Military to Shoot Down North Korean Missiles
http://conservativefighters.com/news/trump-orders-military-shoot-north-korean-missiles/
President Donald Trump has given military orders for U.S. forces to shoot down and destroy any missile launched from North Korea and moving toward the continental United States, Hawaii, and Guam.

Sources close to the president’s national security team tell Newsmax the order was given to Pentagon brass in the wake of last month’s threat by North Korea to fire a ballistic missile aimed at Guam, a U.S. territory.

“The threat provoked the president,” one source familiar with the decision told Newsmax.

Last Sunday, North Korea detonated a thermonuclear weapon. The communist regime claims they can fit the new device on advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles, known as ICBMs.


This week, South Korean intelligence sources said the North was moving an ICBM in an apparent preparation for another test launch over the northern Pacific and possibly Japan.

The president also is said to be considering a new “shoot down” order for any North Korean missile launched and moving toward Japan or South Korea, another national security source told Newsmax.

“This is a clear exercise of self-defense, and there’s no question we should do it,” former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Newsmax.

Bolton said U.S. allies South Korea and Japan “are in jeopardy” and said the United States must take steps to protect them under treaty obligations.

The presidential order came after a flurry of recent provocations from Pyongyang.

In August, President Trump ominously warned the North Koreans that continued threats “will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Soon after, North Korea answered Trump’s warning by threatening a ballistic missile strike off the territory of Guam.

The president quickly responded, saying any attack against the U.S. would be met with a fierce response.

“Things will happen to them like they never thought possible,” the president said, adding U.S. forces were “locked and loaded.”

The situation appeared to be de-escalating when North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un announced he had met with his military commanders and they would not fire the missile at Guam.

In a threatening move Aug. 29, North Korea launched from their capital Pyongyang what they said was an “ultramodern rocket system” — an intermediate range missile. The missile flew over Japanese territory and landed in the Pacific.

“There is general consensus in the White House and the Pentagon that North Korea is quite close to the ‘red zone’ and that the U.S. must act soon or lose the upper hand,” one official told Newsmax.

Bolton, who has advised the president informally on security matters, said the U.S. is being “driven in the direction of a preemptive strike because North Korea won’t back down.”

“We are close to the finish line,” Bolton said, referring to Pyongyang’s recent missile and nuclear developments. “It highlights how little time we have here.”

Just days after North Korea’s nuclear test detonation, Han Tae Song, the North Korean ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, told a disarmament conference the U.S. could expect more “more gift packages.”

If the U.S. military does act on President Trump’s orders to shoot down a missile, this would be achieved through different U.S. anti-ballistic programs under the aegis of the Missile Defense Agency.

Among these programs are the 26-year-old Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, (THAAD), whose “hit to kill” interceptors are designed to shoot down an incoming missile through kinetic energy that explodes the missile on impact.

“It’s called stopping a bullet with a bullet,” one veteran intelligence expert told Newsmax.

The technology appears to be working.

In late August, a day after the North Korea missile flew over Japan, the U.S. Missile Agency conducted a test that successfully struck down a ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii.

The White House press office and the Pentagon declined to comment on this report.

At Thursday’s White House press conference held with the Emir of Kuwait, the president said while “military action would certainly be an option” in dealing with North Korea, he added “nothing’s inevitable.”

“I would prefer not going the route of the military,” he said.

ALERT: Trump Issues Massive N. Korea Order to Military
September 8, 2017 Ben Baker
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/trump-issues-n-korea-order-to-military/?utm_medium=push&utm_source=AP&utm_campaign=onesignal
With North Korea firing missiles over Japan, testing a hydrogen bomb and retracting threats to fire a missile at Guam, it’s apparent things are beyond tense.

After Kim Jong-un threatened to fire a missile at Guam, President Trump issued a clear order, according to Newsmax. Trump has ordered the US military to shoot down any missile launched by North Korea that is heading toward the US or its territories.

After North Korea fired its missile over Japan, President Trump was said to be considering extending the order to shoot any missile launched from North Korea, though no decision has been reported yet.

John Bolton, the former US Ambassador to the UN, says the order to shoot down all incoming missiles is a no brainer. “This is a clear exercise of self-defense, and there’s no question we should do it.”

Some have wondered why Japan didn’t issue a similar order to its military after North Korea fired a missile over Japanese territory. According to The Independent, there are actually a number of benefits, albeit risky ones, for a country to allow the missiles to be fired around them.

One potential downfall to shooting a missile out of the sky is that the defense systems might miss, according to Douglas H. Pal, former National Security Council member to President Bush and current Vice President of the Carnegie Endowment for Peace.

This would, no doubt, boost North Korea’s confidence to launch additional missiles or even attack. “We’ve been working on this technology for 30 years, and it’s still not ironclad. If we shoot and miss, it would hand Kim Jong-un an incalculable propaganda victory,” Pal said.

Another benefit, Pal pointed out, is the data collected from both the launch, flight, and the wreckage of the missile. “These tests are for North Korea to experiment with their capabilities but, less obviously, they help us learn about those capabilities,” Pal said. “From telemetry data to the wreckage we can recover, there’s a huge amount of information in every launch- not least the clues to their strategy that can be discerned from their decisions.”

The final reason would be that shooting down a test missile may be perceived as an act of war by Kim Jong-un, who may use the act as a justification to actually fire his missiles with the intent of striking at his enemies.

Despite these benefits, however, President Trump’s standing order to shoot down any missile approaching the US is still a wise one. According to The Atlantic, a serious threat from test missiles is that they can fail, causing massive damage.

Michael Auslin, a Williams-Griffis Fellow in Contemporary Asia at the Hoover Institution, argues this point: “If North Korea is reckless enough to launch these over populated areas, and then the missile breaks up, what happens of course if it falls on a populated area and causes casualties? At some point, there could be an accident or a mistake, and you’re plunged into a crisis.”

This is a legitimate concern considering the number of failed missile tests by North Korea that have failed to hit their designated targets or explode too soon.

There’s also the obvious risk that the launch may not be a test. Precious time that could be used to destroy the missile might be wasted determining if the trajectory of the incoming missile is an attack, test, or miscalculation on North Korea’s part.

A missile test launch towards the US could very easily spark the powder keg of war and our military could attack North Korea preemptively. According to Bolton, North Korea’s refusal to back down to sanctions and threats is causing the US to seriously consider a preemptive strike already.

Referencing the hydrogen bomb test and Japan launch Bolton said, “We are close to the finish line. It highlights how little time we have here.”

Though shooting down an incoming test missile may be what starts a war, having a standing order to shoot down any missiles that may pose a threat avoids any accidents or miscalculations from occurring that could result in loss of life. It’s also important to remember that if a war occurs because of the US shooting down a test launch, it started because the US was acting in self-defense against a nation growing increasingly hostile and trying to provoke a response.

US deploys hundreds of troops amid fears of Kim missile test tomorrow
North Korea’s threats to launch yet another missile has been met with the deployment of hundreds of American troops to East Asia. North Korea is feared to be plotting a provocative missile launch or even another nuclear test tomorrow as the country marks the anniversary of its founding with a huge celebration. Experts believe despot Kim Jong-un could be preparing to celebrate the national holiday in
explosive style, setting alarm bells ringing in Seoul, Washington and Tokyo. Now 600 Alaska-based troops have been flown to Japan to take part in drills and boost the number of US soldiers in the region in case the nuclear tension erupts into all-out war. They will carry out Orient Shield military drills with Japanese troops, with Black Hawk helicopters also making the trip for the exercises.

North Korea Pursuing EMP Bomb
Sep 7, 2017 | 1 |
North Korea Pursuing EMP Bomb
North Korea for the first time this week revealed plans for using its nuclear arms for space-based electronics-disrupting EMP attacks, in addition to direct warhead ground blasts. The official communist party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, published a report Monday on “the EMP might of nuclear weapons,” outlining an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack produced by detonating a nuclear warhead in space.
“In general, the strong electromagnetic pulse generated from nuclear bomb explosions between 30 kilometers and 100 kilometers [18.6 miles and 62 miles] above the ground can severely impair electronic devices, electric machines, and electromagnetic grids, or destroy electric cables and safety devices,” said the article authored by Kim Songwon, dean of Kim Chaek University of Technology in Pyongyang.

Nuke-sniffer, ballistic recon aircraft deploy to Okinawa amid rising tensions with N. Korea
Air Force aircraft that detect radioactive fallout and track ballistic missiles are operating on Okinawa in the wake of North Korea’s sixth nuclear test and ahead of an anticipated intercontinental ballistic missile launch. A WC-135 Constant Phoenix — commonly referred to as a nuke-sniffer — arrived at Kadena Air Base Sept. 5, said Satoru Kuba, an Okinawan who monitors military aircraft. The Constant Phoenix,
which specializes in identifying radioactive debris after the detonation of a nuclear device, departed the next day with a tanker aircraft, Kuba said, and has been parked at Kadena ever since returning. North Korea tested its sixth and most powerful nuclear weapon on Sept. 3. The test was conducted on the heels of two groundbreaking ICBM launches in July that pushed the country closer to its stated goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach the U.S. mainland.

Chinese military practices for ‘surprise attack’ over sea near Korea
China’s air force has carried out exercises near the Korean peninsula, practicing to defend against a “surprise attack” coming over the sea, Chinese state media reported. An anti-aircraft defense battalion carried out the exercises early on Tuesday, near the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea that
separates China from the peninsula, an official military website www.81.cn reported. Troops traveled to the site from central China before immediately beginning drills to fend off the “surprise attack” simulating real battle, it said. “The troops rapid response capabilities and actual combat levels have effectively been tested,” it said.

Mattis Warns “US will launch massive military response to North Korea threats”
The United States will launch a “massive military response” to threats from North Korea, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Sunday. He spoke after President Donald Trump met with his national security advisers following a test of what Pyongyang said was a hydrogen bomb able to fit atop a missile. “Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive
military response, a response both effective and overwhelming,” Mattis said. He added: “Kim Jong-Un should take heed of the United Nations Security Council’s unified voice. All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses and remain unanimous in their commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Donald Trump REFUSES to rule out attack on North Korea as Kim Jong-un warns US it ‘would not escape from the greatest disaster’ following nuke test
Donald Trump has refused to rule out an attack on North Korea as Kim Jong-un warned the US “would not escape from the greatest disaster” after the rogue nation detonated its sixth nuclear bomb. The test triggered a 6.3-magnitude artificial quake – ten times larger than any of North Korea’s previous attempts. The test was seen as a direct challenge to Trump, who has vowed to stop North Korea developing nuclear
weapons that could threaten the United States. State media has now issued a “severe warning” to America. The Korean Central News Agency said: “If the US imperialists awkwardly provoke the DPRK, they would not be able to escape from the greatest disaster.” When questioned if he would attack North Korea, Trump said: “We’ll see”.

ALERT: Trump Sends Massive “War” Message
September 5, 2017 Ben Baker
The US and its allies aren’t pulling any punches after North Korea’s recent test of an alleged hydrogen bomb.

In addition to beefing up US self-defense measures and preparing military action, Trump has also been enhancing South Korea’s defensive capabilities. Yesterday, Trump agreed to sell “many billions of dollars worth of military weapons and equipment” to South Korea, according to Newsmax.

On Sunday, North Korea claimed it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that would be suitable for use with long range missiles. The move caused immediate concern, leading the US and its allies to begin making preparations for the worst.

As part of the military side of preparations, the US has agreed to sell a massive number of weapons and equipment to South Korea and Japan, according to Trump’s tweet early this morning. “I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States.
In addition to weapons and equipment, South Korea will also be permitted to lift their weight restriction on warheads. Lifting the weight restriction on warheads would allow South Korea to fit their missiles with larger, heavier warheads that could do greater damage when launched. The US and South Korea hope this alone will be an effective deterrent to an attack from North Korea.
There have also been talks between South Korea and the US about deploying aircraft carriers and strategic bombers near the Korean peninsula in an effort to ward off any missiles launched by North Korea.
In addition to military preparations, the US has also sought to utilize economic warfare as a means of hindering North Korea’s abilities, according to NBC News. In a tweet sent out Sunday following the hydrogen bomb test, Trump threatened to cut trade with North Korean allies, stating that, “The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea.”
South Korean President Moon Jae-In believes restricting North Korean’s income generators is key to limiting its military potential. In a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he stated the UN needs to “seriously consider to fundamentally block North Korea’s foreign currency sources by cutting off crude oil supplies and banning its overseas labor.”

President Jae-In has also lifted previous restrictions on the deployment of THAAD batteries in the country. These US missile defense systems would enable South Korea to target and destroy missiles from North Korea in mid-air, all without detonating their nuclear payloads.

President Trump agrees to sell “many billions of dollars worth of military weapons and equipment” to South Korea.Do you approve of this move?

Do you approve of Trump's plan to sell more weapons to South Korea?

Yes
No
Next
Though many of these preparations and measures look promising, some feel it simply won’t be enough — North Korea has ignored similar threats in the past.

Hans Kristensen, Director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists believes military and economic pressures just aren’t enough to stop North Korea. “Right now, everything North Korea does appears to have to be bigger and scarier. The signal they’re sending is the same as always: we don’t care what you say, we can do this and will continue to do so until you stop threatening us. And they seem to have the resources needed to do so despite sanctions,” he said.
Hopefully, the steps we’re taking will mitigate the North Korean threat, and can prevent potential attacks from their hostile dictator.

Emanuel’s Plan To Make Chicago A “Trump-Free Zone” Fails Immediately
Mayor Rahm Emanuel also known as Obama’s first confidante, attacked Trump again, but this time it was hilarious. He is well known for his inability to accomplish anything. And now he made a promise to his people that will never be able to keep, he promised to make Chicago a “Trump-free Zone.”

When Trump announced he will end DACA, Democrats almost immediately started attacking him and causing chaos over the media especially the left politicians. One of them was Rahm Emanuel who gathered students at Southwest Side high school Tuesday and started telling them not to be scared that Trump had no place in Chicago.

“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room, and in the city of Chicago, you are welcomed in the city of Chicago,” Emanuel said. “This is your home and you have nothing to worry about.”

Then he addressed President Trump directly: “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about.”


Solorio Academy High School is a school where more than half of the students are illegals, and having that in mind Emanuel thought he was playing his cards right, but things backfired quickly.

Many conservatives were quick to point out how ridiculous was his attempt to refuse cooperation with the federal government. They took it on Twitter with saying, “Another liberal making false promises he has no authority to keep?” and “Emanuel declares Chicago is now a Trump free zone but illegal aliens, illegal guns, murders and illegal drugs welcome,”

It’s surprising that a mayor of such big city will make that promise since there is no law allowing him to do so. Liberals and illegals shouldn’t start celebrating right now since Emanuel gave them an empty promise. President Trump can visit Chicago whenever he wants for how long he wants. Emanuel just proved that he is full of empty promises as always.

If these uninformed illegal voters and many liberals continue to vote for idiots like Emanuel, Republicans will win every single time.

North Korea claims to have hydrogen bomb for long-range missile

North Korea claims to have hydrogen bomb for long-range missile
North Korea claimed Sunday that it had developed a hydrogen bomb to use with a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The claim by North Korea’s state media arm was first reported by South Korea’s Yonhap News. The Korean Central News Agency said that that dictator Kim Jong-un inspected “an H-bomb to be loaded into [a] new
ICBM” during a visit to the North’s Nuclear Weapons Institute. Photos accompanied the statement showed the purported hydrogen bomb being developed in a lab. There was no immediate comment from the Pentagon or other U.S. officials. However, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress in March that North Korea had developed the ability to put a nuclear warhead on a missile.

RUMORS OF WAR: Putin warns North Korea situation on verge of ‘large-scale conflict’…
Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the tense standoff between North Korea and the United States was on the verge of large-scale conflict and said it was a mistake to try to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear missile program. Putin, who is due to attend a summit of the BRICS nations in China next week, wrote in an article published
on the Kremlin’s web site ahead of his trip that he favoured negotiations with North Korea instead. “It is essential to resolve the region’s problems through direct dialogue involving all sides without advancing any preconditions (for such talks),” Putin wrote. “Provocations, pressure, and bellicose and offensive rhetoric is the road to nowhere.”

Putin warns N. Korea situation on verge of 'large-scale conflict'
by Reuters
Friday, 1 September 2017 07:58 GMT
MOSCOW, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the tense standoff between North Korea and the United States was on the verge of large-scale conflict and said it was a mistake to try to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear missile programme.

Putin, who is due to attend a summit of the BRICS nations in China next week, wrote in an article published on the Kremlin's web site ahead of his trip that he favoured negotiations with North Korea instead.

"It is essential to resolve the region's problems through direct dialogue involving all sides without advancing any preconditions (for such talks)," Putin wrote.

"Provocations, pressure, and bellicose and offensive rhetoric is the road to nowhere."

The situation on the Korean Peninsula had deteriorated so much that it was now "balanced on the verge of a large-scale conflict," said the Russian leader.

North Korea has been working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States and has recently threatened to land missiles near the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.

On Monday, Pyongyang, which sees joint war games between the United States and South Korea as preparations for invasion, raised the stakes in its stand-off with the United States and its allies by firing an intermediate-range missile over Japan.

"In Russia's opinion the calculation that it is possible to halt North Korea's nuclear missile programmes exclusively by putting pressure on Pyongyang is erroneous and futile," Putin wrote.

A road map formulated by Moscow and Beijing, which would involve North Korea stopping work on its missile programme in exchange for the United States and South Korea halting large-scale war games, was a way to gradually reduce tensions, wrote Putin.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea vows to ‘sharpen its nuclear sword’ in WW3 threat to America
AUGUST 27, 2017
North Korea has sparked fears of all-out war with the USA after threatening to “sharpen its nuclear sword” as tensions continue to escalate. North Korea has issued yet another saber-rattling statement to its Western enemies, warning the US it would show “no mercy” in any conflict. The statement, issued by a Pyongyang-based news agency which acts as a
mouthpiece for despot Kim Jong-un, said the hermit state did not fear to start World War 3. It comes amid ever-rising tensions on the Korean peninsula as Kim and US president Donald Trump both become increasingly determined not to blink first. The propaganda agency even went so far as to say Kim was accelerating the country’s nuclear missile program in order to reduce the threat of nuclear war.

Venice Mayor Warns ‘We Will Shoot’ Anyone Who Shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’
AUGUST 26, 2017
Cops in Venice have been told to shoot potential terrorists on sight. The Italian city’s mayor has ordered them to target anyone shouting “Allahu Akbar”, Arabic for God is Greater. Luigi Brugnaro, mayor of the tourist hot spot of Venice, revealed the order at a summer think tank and was applauded by delegates. He said: “Anyone who shouts Allahu Akbar in
St Mark’s Square can expect to be gunned down by snipers within four paces. “We need to increase our security when it cto terrorism. We had four would be terrorists arrested in Venice a few months ago who wanted to blow up the Rialto bridge. “They said they wanted to go and meet Allah so we will send them straight to Allah without having to throw them off the bridge, we will just shoot them.”

North Korea fires three ballistic missiles into East Sea
AUGUST 26, 2017
North Korea launched at least three ballistic missiles into the East Sea on Saturday morning, according to South Korean and U.s. militaries. The North fired “several unidentified projectiles” from the vicinity Gitdaeryong in Gangwon Province starting at around 6:49 a.m., said the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). Some of those flew more than 250 kilometers in the northeastern direction, it added. The U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) also said, “Initial assessment indicates three short-
range ballistic missile launches.” “The first and third missiles at 11:49 a.m. (Hawaii time) and 12:19 p.m. failed in flight,” the PACOM’s spokesman Cdr. David Benham said in an emailed statement. “The second missile launch at 12:07 p.m. appears to have blown up almost immediately.” The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) determined the three ballistic missile launches from North Korea did not pose a threat to North America, he added.

North Korea is Now Using School Teachers, Children to Hunt Christians
AUGUST 22, 2017
It’s no secret that North Korea is a horrific place for Christians, with the reclusive government in Pyongyang routinely persecuting and murdering Bible-believers. But despite the intense restrictions and risks, Fox News recently reported that an estimated 9 million North Koreans — 36 percent of the population — still practice Christianity.And that’s pretty telling, considering that Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern, a group that monitors persecution, told the outlet
that Christians caught practicing their faith “are arrested, horrendously tortured, imprisoned and [sometimes] immediately put to death.” Being a Christian in North Korea is certainly dangerous, with the regime going to great lengths to encourage — and even trick — people into telling on their fellow citizens if and when they learn that someone is practicing the Christian faith.

North Korea’s latest propaganda depicts Trump in cemetery
AUGUST 22, 2017
President Trump is pictured looking out over a Guam graveyard cluttered with crosses in a photoshopped image from the newest propaganda film — and grim warning — from North Korea. The regime followed the video with a statement posted through its KCNA news agency, saying Trump “spouted rubbish” and frequently tweeted about “weird articles of his ego-
driven thoughts” and attacking South Korea’s “puppy-like” Defense Minister Song Young-moo for “pinning hope on that
mad guy.” But the picture of a graveyard believed to be in Guam may be the most rattling in the video, given dictator Kim Jong Un’s repeated threats to strike the U.S. territory with a missile. The video also features Vice President Pence engulfed in flames. “Trump spouted rubbish that if a war breaks out, it would be on the Korean Peninsula, and if thousands of people die, they would be only Koreans and Americans may sleep a sound sleep,” the KCNA statement said.

War Games Begin as U.S., South Korea Brace for North’s Fury
AUGUST 21, 2017
A new cycle of escalation on the Korean Peninsula looks set to begin this week when the U.S. and South Korea kick off annual military exercises that have a history of enraging Pyongyang. The long-planned drills follow weeks of belligerent rhetoric between the U.S. and North Korea that stoked fears of a catastrophic outcome. In what many saw as a slight easing of tensions last week, dictator Kim Jong Un said he would hold off for now before deciding whether to carry out a
threat, announced days earlier, to fire missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. The 10-day drills, known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian, will test whether North Korea’s apparent easing of its immediate threat to Guam proves durable—or if the de-escalation was really a backdown at all. U.S. officials have long said the exercises are intended to ensure readiness for a possible North Korean attack. Pyongyang, though, has characterized them as preparation for an invasion.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea warns of ‘merciless strike’ ahead of US-S.Korea drills…
AUGUST 20, 2017
North Korea warned Sunday that the upcoming US-South Korea military exercises are “reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war.” Pyongyang also declared that its army can target the United States anytime, and neither Guam, Hawaii nor the US mainland can “dodge the merciless strike.” The messages in Rodong
Sinmun, the official government newspaper, come a day before the US starts the Ulchi Freedom Guardian military exercises with South Korea. Tensions between the US and North Korea have grown in recent weeks. Just last week, Pyongyang said it had finalized a plan to fire four missiles toward the US territory of Guam. State media reported that leader Kim Jong Un would assess the US’ next move before giving launch orders.

US and S.Korea War Games Begin on Day of Eclipse as Pyongyang warns of ‘Catastrophe’…
AUGUST 18, 2017
Are tensions cooling in the Korean Peninsula? The United States and South Korea will find out Monday, when the two allies are scheduled to start joint military exercises that are known to anger North Korea, sometimes triggering a show of force. This year’s war games come at a particularly delicate moment. There have been exchanges of war rhetoric between
President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, has further complicated the situation, by stating in an interview there’s “no military option” in North Korea while floating a possible deal with Pyongyang that would leave Seoul hanging. Amid all this back and forth, the U.S. and South Korean military will simulate warfare with North Korea from Aug. 21 to 31, well aware that North Korea could respond with another missile test.

Pentagon Sources Confirm North Korea Nearly Has an H-Bomb
AUGUST 17, 2017
Rumors of war with North Korea are subsiding for now, but another serious threat is still growing. CBN News has learned North Korea could be close to developing an even more powerful weapon than the nukes it has already built. For now, dictator Kim Jong Un has taken a step back from the brink of war, after vowing revenge against the United States over
U.N. sanctions against his country. But the rogue regime may just be buying more time. Pentagon sources confirm North Korea is anywhere from six to 18 months away from developing a hydrogen bomb. “It isn’t ludicrous to think that the North Koreans, even though their economy is one-third the size of Ethiopia, can do this,” said Harry Kazianis who heads up the defense studies at The Center for National Interest.

North Korea Video Portrays US Capitol Building being obliterated by red missiles
AUGUST 17, 2017
North Korea’s latest propaganda posters show the country bombing the United States as their ‘answer’ to the latest UN sanctions against the country. The illustrations see Pyongyang warheads destroying the Capitol Building in Washington DC, and dozens of bombs falling over a burning map of the U.S. Proclaiming that the ‘entire region of the state [U.S.] is now within range of our missiles!’, the posters is the latest escalation in threats of nuclear war by North Korea. The three
drawings were released by Pyongyang mouthpiece Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Thursday. One shows warheads underneath a North Korean flag, all pointed at the Capitol, and captioned: ‘Our answer!’. Another has a cartoon tank with a bomb mounted on top, which reads: ‘No one can stop our way!’ The third claims that the U.S. is now within range of the country’s nuclear missiles, with dozens of bombs being launched at the United States on fire on a map.

Iranian Military Officials Warn That They Will Never Allow U.S. to Inspect Military Sites
AUGUST 16, 2017
A top official with Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps expressed strong opposition to the notion that the United States should be allowed to inspect Iran’s military sites. “Both the great Iranian nation and the U.S. and the world should know that if there is only one demand in the whole world which will be rejected and if there is only one wish that will be taken to
the grave, it is the Americans’ demand to visit our military centers,” lieutenant commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, according to a report by the Iranian Fars news agency. Speaking on Saturday night, Salami said that “if (the Americans) want to visit a base, they should go to the military sites in the U.S.

CIA Chief Assures Nuclear War with N. Korea Not ‘Imminent’
AUGUST 14, 2017
There’s no “imminent” threat of a nuclear war between the US and North Korea, according to CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who explained that Donald Trump’s threats against Pyongyang describe only a possible response for “certain actions.” “There’s nothing imminent today,” Pompeo told Fox News on Sunday. “But make no mistake about it, the continuation,
the increased chance that there will be a nuclear missile in Denver is a very serious threat and the investigation is going to treat it as such.” “What I’m talking about is I’ve heard folks talking about being on the cusp of a nuclear war,” he added. “No intelligence that would indicate that we’re in that place today.” Rather than an escalation to a nuclear war, Pompeo argued that Trump’s heated rhetoric towards Pyongyang was to send a message that its continued pursuit of a nuclear arsenal and
ballistic missile technology would not be tolerated.

Iran ‘to deploy navy for electronic Warfare drills’ amid rising tensions with the US
AUGUST 16, 2017
Iran plans to deploy naval forces as the country stages a massive series of battle games focusing on electronic warfare, a military chief declared. Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced the plans as the Islamic Republic revealed it may abandon its nuclear agreement with world powers “within hours” if more new sanctions are imposed amid escalating tensions with the US. The commander added a specialized warfare drill would be held in the
southeast of the country in the next few days. A United Nations resolution calls for Iran not to undertake activity related to ballistic missiles designed to have a nuclear warhead. Electronic warfare, also known as EW, represents the ability to use the electromagnetic spectrum—signals such as radio, infrared or radar to sense, protect, and communicate. At the same time, it can be used to deny adversaries the ability to either disrupt or use these signals.

Solar Eclipse on Eve of Elul Signals Downfall of North Korea, Says Century-Old Jewish Prophecy
AUGUST 16, 2017
An esoteric prophecy written over a century ago described the solar eclipse that will traverse the entire United States next week and predicted, in shocking detail, what the astronomical event portends for the outcome of the current North Korean-US conflict. The total solar eclipse’s timing is meaningful according to the Jewish calendar. Incredibly, it comes precisely at the beginning of a Hebrew month – Elul – singled out in a Jewish source as having significance for the specific political situation the US is facing today with Eastern aggressors.
“The prophecy states that when a solar eclipse occurs exactly as it will next week, in the beginning of the month of Elul, kings of the East will suffer great loss,” Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, revealed of the century-old text Yalkut Moshe (“Collection of Moses”). Just a few hours after the path of darkness departs the coast of South Carolina and the sun sets, the Hebrew month of Elul begins, ushering in a 40-day period of repentance corresponding to the period Moses spent on Mount Sinai repenting for the Jewish People.

Al Qaeda Publishes Blueprint for Attacks on Key U.S. Transportation Systems…
AUGUST 15, 2017
The al Qaeda terror group’s chief bomb maker has published a blueprint for new attacks on U.S. transportation systems, including planes, trains, and boats, which the terror group views as “prime targets,” according to a copy of a lengthy manifesto that provides a guide for would-be terrorists to launch attacks. Ibrahim al-Asiri, a top al Qaeda leader known as the terror group’s chief bomb maker, detailed the extremist organization’s plans to target U.S. passenger and shipping
transportation services, which the terror organization views as weak links ripe for attack. While al Qaeda’s operations have been weakened by years of U.S. attacks on its key locations and apparatus, it has increasingly relied on promulgating its radical ideology to so-called “lone wolfs” who are not officially affiliated with the group but who are capable of carrying out terror attacks without detection by American authorities.

Kim Jong Un will watch ‘stupid American behavior for a bit longer’
AUGUST 15, 2017
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un was briefed by one of his generals on the country’s plan to launch missiles toward Guam, according to South Korea’s largest news agency, but the combative leader appeared to put the heated rhetoric on pause, saying he would watch “stupid American behavior for a bit longer.” KCNA, the state news agency of North Korea, said in a
statement, “Dear supreme leader has spent a long time to review the plan to attack Guam by surrounding it and conferred with the leaders present,” according to a translation by the South Korean news agency Yonhap. On Monday Kim reportedly met with his Gen. Kim Rak Gyom, warning soldiers to stand ready to strike “at all times,” according to the Yonhap report.

RUMORS OF WAR: US Defense Sec Warns “If North Korea Fires Missiles at US, It’s Game On”!
AUGUST 15, 2017
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Monday that if North Korea follows through on its threats to fire a missile at the United States, “it’s game on.” Speaking to reporters, Mattis added that the U.S. military would “take out” any North Korean missile it detects is heading for American soil, including Guam, a U.S. territory. Mattis said the U.S. would detect a missile of that nature heading towards Guam “within moments.” Mattis added that if North Korea fires at the U.S., “it could
escalate into war very quickly… yes, that’s called war, if they shoot at us.”North Korea has warned it was considering a plan to launch four ballistic missiles to land in the sea just outside Guam. Asked how the U.S. would respond, Mattis initially declined to say. When pressed, he said that if U.S. radars and other detection and tracking systems determine that a missile was going to fall into the sea, short of Guam.

Kim Jong Un disappearance sparks concerns missile launch could be imminent
AUGUST 14, 2017
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has vanished from the public eye for two weeks, South Korean media reported, prompting fears that he may be preparing to mark Tuesday’s public holiday by firing a new rocket. The last time Kim went days without being seen was prior to the ICBM launch in late July, when he remained incognito for two weeks before making his grandiose public appearance. His public withdrawal comes as nuclear tensions mount between Washington
and Pyongyang, and on the heels of the leader’s threat to attack the U.S. island territory of Guam. On Tuesday, North Korea is set to commemorate the Korean Peninsula’s liberation from Japan at the end of World War II. Adding to the speculation of an imminent rocket-fire test, last week U.S.-based North Korea watchdog site 38 North released satellite imagery of a submarine base in the hermit country,

RUMORS OF WAR: DEFCON threat level increased over North Korea missile test fears

America’s nuclear warning system DEFCON has been upgraded as tensions between the US and North Korea reach a critical boiling point. Last week US President Donald Trump threatened the hermit state with “fire and fury” should it continue to test missiles and issue threats to the West. Now, the Defcon warning system, which has monitored and
assessed nuclear threats against the US for more than 33 years, has been upped from its lowest level to level four. A report said while there does not appear to be an “imminent nuclear threat”, there are events which are beginning to require close attention. The statement said: “Tensions between North Korea and the United States are reaching almost a fever pitch, with new threats coming out every day.

RUMORS OF WAR: US ready to use ‘full range of military capabilities’ against North Korea
AUGUST 15, 2017
The United States is ready to use the “full range” of its capabilities if provoked by North Korea, the country’s top military officer said, noting that Washington is still hoping for a “peaceful resolution” to the crisis. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made clear on Monday that Washington is ready “to use the full range of military capabilities to defend our allies and the US homeland,” according to US military spokesman Capt. Darryn James,
as cited by AP. Dunford previously stressed to reporters, however, that the US is “seeking a peaceful resolution to the crisis,” local media reported. The comments were made during Dunford’s visit to South Korea, where he is meeting with the country’s military and political officials, as well as local media. Dunford, who is also visiting Japan and China during his trip, earlier told reporters traveling with him that he is aiming to “sense what the temperature is in the region.”

Russia unveils new fleet of ‘invisible’ supersonic fighter jets
AUGUST 14, 2017
Russia has unveiled its new fleet of ‘invisible’ supersonic fighter jets, boasting that they are already the envy of air forces around the world. The £120million Sukhoi-57, which will have a top speed of 1,615 mph, is said to rival America’s F-22 and China’s Chengdu J-20, Kremlin officials say the fifth-generation stealth jet has been ‘christened like a baby after its
birth’ as Su-57 and will undergo another year of testing before it enters military service in 2019. The country’s air force chief Viktor Bondarev described the aircraft as a ‘wonderful machine’ and last month said: ‘Every country probably wants planes such as this, and we have them.’The plane was called ‘PAK FA’ and ‘T-50’ during its developmental stage. Russia says the Su-57 will use state-of-the-art stealth technology to make it hard to track on enemy radars.

Iran Begins Sending Warships To Atlantic…
AUGUST 14, 2017
Iran is preparing to send a flotilla of warships to the Atlantic Ocean following the announcement of a massive $500 million investment in war spending, according to Iranian leaders, who say the military moves are in response to recent efforts by the United States to impose a package of new economic sanctions on Tehran. The military investment and build up comes following weeks of tense interactions between Iran and the United States in regional waters, where Iranian
military ships have carried out a series of dangerous maneuvers near U.S. vessels. The interactions have roiled U.S. military leaders and prompted tough talk from the Trump administration, which is currently examining potential ways to leave the landmark nuclear deal. Iran’s increasingly hostile behavior also follows a little-noticed United Nations report disclosing that Iran has repeatedly violated international accords banning ballistic missile work.

US and South Korea to stage huge military exercise despite North Korea crisis
AUGUST 14, 2017
US and South Korean militaries will go ahead with massive sea, land and air exercises later this month, despite a spiraling situation in which North Korea has threatened to fire missiles towards a US Pacific territory. The annual joint exercises, named Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, have long been planned for 21-31 August, but now come at a time when both
Washington and Pyongyang are on heightened alert, raising the spectre of a mishap or overreaction. The timing is doubly concerning as it is within a timeframe in which Pyongyang says it will be ready to fire four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles toward the US-run island of Guam, an unusually specific threat against the US.

AUGUST 15, 2017
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week
following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and could engulf the North in “fire and fury,” while North Korea, through its state media, had threatened to fire four missiles in a bid to surround the U.S. territory of Guam in “enveloping fire.”

DEVELOPING: Satellite photos suggest North Korea preparing submarine missile test
AUGUST 13, 2017
Recent satellite photos suggest North Korea could be preparing for fresh submarine-based ballistic missile tests, an expert on its military said Friday. Joseph Bermudez, a specialist in North Korean defense and intelligence affairs, posted photographs on the authoritative 38 North blog of the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University which he said could show preparations for a test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). “Recent commercial satellite imagery
reveals several developments suggesting that North Korea may be accelerating the development of the sea-based leg of its nuclear forces,” he said. Activity on a SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine at the Mayang-do navy shipyard and submarine base, he said, suggests “that the North may be preparing for a new series of ‘at sea’ test launches, has undertaken modifications or upgrades to the submarine’s launch systems

RUMORS OF WAR: Top U.S. General Readies Military Plan for North Korea
AUGUST 13, 2017
The Pentagon’s top military officer said here Sunday the focus remains on finding a diplomatic solution to the North Korea missile crisis, even as the military works up viable options in case they become necessary. Amid heated rhetoric between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, the military is quietly supporting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s effort to use diplomatic and economic pressure to avert war.
“As a military leader, I have to make sure that the president does have viable military options in the event that the diplomatic and economic pressurization campaign fails,” said Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford in his first public remarks since the crisis escalated with North Korea’s launch of a second intercontinental ballistic missile late last month.

WAR DRUMS: General Mattis Warns North Korea: Stop or Face ‘Destruction of Its People’
AUGUST 10, 2017
U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis warned North Korea to stop its missile tests and nuclear program or face devastation. The news comes after dictator Kim Jong Un threatened to attack U.S. forces in Guam after revelations that his regime now has mini-nukes. “The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” Mattis said in a statement, referring to North Korea. “The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that
would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”The statement goes on to state, “President Trump was informed of the growing threat last December, and on taking office his first orders to me emphasized the readiness of our ballistic missile defense and nuclear deterrent forces… The DPRK regime’s actions will continue to be grossly overmatched by ours and would lose any arms race or conflict it initiates.”

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea Reveals Targeted US Cities In Attack!
AUGUST 10, 2017
North Korea’s nuclear targets have already been chosen and his first strike will kill nearly half a MILLION people, Daily Star Online can reveal. Pyongyang’s battle plan for a devastating nuclear assault has been laid bare as war rhetoric reaches crisis level between the rogue state and US. US President Donald Trump claimed he would unleash “fire and fury” upon North Korea. His shocking threat came as US spooks confirmed Kim can now miniaturize nuclear warheads for use on his
ICBMs. Daily Star Online can now reveal where North Korea will strike should war come – hitting the continental US with an onslaught to kill as many as 493,000. North Korea is considering strikes on key cities across the US, with four being identified on a map seen in North Korean propaganda in the “war room” with Kim. These targets are marked under the subtitle “US Mainland Strike Plan”.

Kim Jong Un Mocks Trump’s Threat To North Korea
AUGUST 10, 2017
North Korea dismissed on Thursday warnings by U.S. President Donald Trump that it would face “fire and fury” if it threatened the United States as a “load of nonsense”, and outlined detailed plans for a missile strike near the Pacific territory of Guam. North Korea’s apparently rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles capable of
reaching the U.S. mainland has fueled tensions that erupted into a war of words between Washington and Pyongyang this week, unnerving regional powers and global investors. Trump’s unexpected remarks prompted North Korea to say on Thursday it was finalizing plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land 30-40 km (18-25 miles) from Guam, more than 3,000 km (2,000 miles) to the south.

Russian Air Force jet flies over Pentagon, Capitol, and CIA…
AUGUST 10, 2017
An unarmed Russian Air Force aircraft overflew the US Capitol, the Pentagon, Central Intelligence Agency and Joint Base Andrews at low altitude on Wednesday as part of a longstanding treaty that allows the militaries of the United States and Russia to observe the other from the air, according to two people familiar with the flight. The flight was part of the Treaty on Open Skies, which allows military aircraft from the United States and Russia and other nations to fly aerial observation
flights to observe military sites of the 34 signatory nations. The Russian Air Force Tupolev Tu-154 on Wednesday afternoon passed at around 3,700 feet over downtown Washington and Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where Air Force One is based, according to tracking website Flightradar24. The jet is authorized to enter P-56, the highly secure airspace surrounding the White House.

US embassy employees in Cuba possibly subject to ‘acoustic attack’
AUGUST 10, 2017
The US believes several State Department employees at the US embassy in Havana were subjected to an “acoustic attack” using sonic devices that left at least two with such serious health problems they needed to be brought back to the US for treatment, several senior State Department officials told CNN. One official said the employees could have suffered
permanent hearing loss as a result. The employees affected were not at the same place at the same time, but suffered a variety of physical symptoms since late 2016 which resembled concussions. The State Department raised the incidents with the Cuban government over the course of several months and sent medical personnel to Havana, but have not been able to determine exactly what happened.

WAR DRUMS: North Korea Threatens to Strike US Military in Guam
AUGUST 9, 2017
North Korea’s military is “examining the operational plan” to strike areas around the U.S. territory of Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic missiles, state-run news said early Wednesday morning. Specifically, the statement mentioned a potential strike on Andersen Air Force Base designed “to send a serious warning signal to the U.S.” The base
is one of two on the Pacific island, which are the closest bases on U.S. soil to North Korea and represent the westernmost tip of the country’s military might. North Korea’s comments were published after U.S. President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang that if it continued to threaten the U.S., it would “face fire and fury like the world has never seen.”The governor of Guam issued an urgent video message overnight attempting to reassure constituents.

North Korea Missiles Capable Of Reaching Guam in 14 minutes

If North Korea fires missiles toward Guam, they would take about 14 minutes to reach the island, said Guam Homeland Security spokeswoman Jenna Gaminde. She said residents would be immediately notified by the 15 All-Hazards Alert Warning System sirens, located in low-lying areas throughout the island. North Korea announced Thursday that the
nation has a detailed plan for a missile strike near Guam using four intermediate-range ballistic rockets. “Our office will be notified from the military and will utilize all forms of mass communication to get the message out to the public,” Gaminde said. Local media, village mayors and social media would be used to disseminate information, she said. “If you hear the sirens, tune into local media — radio, print, television — for further instructions,” Gaminde said.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea may strike US targets in South Korea if provoked by Americans
AUGUST 11, 2017
North Korea may well fulfil its threat to hit US targets on South Korean territory if continued pressure by Washington puts Pyongyang at an impasse, Pavel Zolotarev, a retired Russian Major General, told RT. “A US strike against North Korea may go against common logic, but when a country is governed by propaganda – and the United States are going through such a period – political decisions go beyond rational logic, and there we can have consequences that are hard to foresee,”
Zolotarev warned. On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump promised to bring “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on North Korea if it doesn’t stop tests aimed at the developing a nuclear-tipped long-range ballistic missile. Than the next day he went even further to say that the “fire and fury” warning to North Korea may not have been “tough enough.” Increased pressure from Washington may force the North to “be more assertive in terms of retaliatory measures,” with South Korea becoming hostage in this situation, he warned.

RUMORS OF WAR: China Warns America Not to Strike First!
AUGUST 11, 2017
If North Korea launches an attack that threatens the United States then China should stay neutral, but if the United States attacks first and tries to overthrow North Korea’s government China will stop them, a Chinese state-run newspaper said on Friday. President Donald Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric toward North Korea and its leader on Thursday, warning Pyongyang against attacking Guam or U.S. allies after it disclosed plans to fire missiles over Japan to land near the U.S. Pacific territory.
China, North Korea’s most important ally and trading partner, has reiterated calls for calm during the current crisis. It has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang’s repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the United States that it sees as escalating tensions. The widely read state-run Global Times, published by the ruling Communist Party’s official People’s Daily, wrote in an editorial that Beijing is not able to persuade either Washington or Pyongyang to back down.

RUMORS OF WAR: Japanese troops begin joint military exercise…
AUGUST 11, 2017
More than 3,500 American and Japanese troops kicked off a weeks-long joint military exercise Thursday against the backdrop of an increasingly belligerent North Korean regime. The exercise, known as Northern Viper 17, will take place on Hokkaido — Japan’s northern-most main island — and will last until Aug. 28.
According to the U.S. Pacific Command, the drill will include 500 Marines and 18 aircraft operating out of the 35th Fighter Wing at Misawa Air Base, on the northern tip of the island of Honshu. “We are improving our readiness not only in the air, but as a logistical support team,” Col. R. Scott Jobe, the 35th Fighter Wing commander, said in a statement. “We are in a prime location for contingency purposes and this exercise will only build upon our readiness in the case a real-world scenario occurs.”

RUMORS OF WAR: What Will Happen if a Nuclear Bomb Detonates
AUGUST 10, 2017
As the United States volleys verbal assaults back and forth with North Korea, end-times expert John Shorey warns a nuclear bomb could trigger an electromagnetic pulse, which would destroy life as we know it. “The studies that the government has done, if an EMP blanketed America and took our grid down, and in fact, they even say that the rolling effect of taking part of the grid down could literally wipe out the whole grid,” Shorey shares on The Jim Bakker Show. He’s not the only one sounding the alarm. According to Business Insider:
When EMP passes through metal objects like a phone, computer, or radio, they can “catch” this incredibly powerful pulse. This can generate a rogue current of electricity that moves through a modern device’s tiny circuits and can disrupt or even destroy them. Power transmission or telecommunications equipment, meanwhile, can overload from the excess current, spark, and fail for miles around.

RUMORS OF WAR: California Bunker Business Sees Spike As Tensions Rise With North Korea
AUGUST 10, 2017
The owner of a California-based bunker business said his phone is ringing off the hook, amid heightened tensions between the United States and North Korea. Fear sells, and Ron Hubbard knows this firsthand as president of Los Angeles-based Atlas Survival Shelters. Hubbard’s company builds 20 different types of shelters, ranging in price from $10,000 to $10 million. Interest in shelters has gone up after President Donald Trump threatened “fire and fury” at North
Korea as Kim Jong Un’s regime continues testing its missile program. “I take that as a preemptive nuclear strike,” Hubbard said. Plenty of other people have taken it that way as well, with Hubbard fielding calls from San Jose, San Francisco and Los Angeles for bunkers. “We’ve sold everything that we got, but we’re trying to produce as fast as we can,” Hubbard told KCBS.

Trump: Military ‘Locked And Loaded’ If North Korea Missteps
RYAN PICKRELL
China/Asia Pacific Reporter
7:59 AM 08/11/2017

President Donald Trump issued another strong warning to North Korea Friday.

The military option is “locked and loaded” if North Korea makes an unwise decision, Trump tweeted.


North Korea has been especially provocative in recent months, testing a series of new short-, medium-, intermediate-, and long-range missiles. The intercontinental ballistic missile tested twice in July is believed to have the ability to strike American cities across the continental U.S. Over the past week, North Korea has signaled its intentions to fire intermediate-range ballistic missiles towards Guam, home to numerous U.S. strategic military assets.

Trump has responded to North Korea’s threats with his own fiery rhetoric. Friday’s tweet follows several additional warnings from the president to the North Koreans.

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” the president declared before the White House press pool Tuesday. “They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

“[Kim Jong Un] has been pushing the world around for a long time,” the president told reporters Thursday.

“If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous,” he explained. “They should be very nervous. Things will happen to them like they never thought possible.”

“Let’s see what he does with Guam,” Trump told reporters, referring to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. If he attacks Guam, it will be “an event the likes of which nobody’s ever seen before” in North Korea.”
“It’s not a dare, it’s a statement,” the president added.

Trump Turns Up The Heat On N. Korea: ‘Things Will Happen To Them They Never Thought Possible’
http://conservativefighters.com/news/trump-turns-heat-n-korea-things-will-happen-never-thought-possible/
President Trump issued a new warning to North Korea Thursday, upping the ante after the president’s “fire and fury” statement Tuesday.

Trump suggested Thursday that his prior statements on North Korea, which received a great deal of criticism from some observers, were “not tough enough.”

“[Kim Jong Un] has been pushing the world around for a long time,” the president told reporters Thursday.

“I will tell you this, if North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous,” he explained. “They should be very nervous. Things will happen to them like they never thought possible.”

“North Korea better get its act together or they’ll be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble in this world,” Trump added.

In response to questions concerning the possibility of a preemptive strike on North Korea, he simply said, “We’ll see what happens.”

The president’s latest statements follow a strong statement Tuesday signaling that the U.S. will no longer tolerate North Korean hostility and aggression as past administrations have.

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump declared Tuesday. “They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”




FLASHBACK 1994: Clinton Says His Deal With North Korea Would Make The World Safer http://conservativefighters.com/news/flashback-1994-clinton-says-deal-north-korea-make-world-safer/
Former President Bill Clinton thought he saved the world from a nuclear North Korea more than two decades ago, but he was wrong.

North Korea now has an intercontinental ballistic missile that can range most of the continental U.S., and a new Defense Intelligence Agency assessment suggests that North Korea has successfully miniaturized nuclear warheads for its missiles. The North is, according to a recent defense intelligence report, expected to be able to field a reliable, nuclear-armed ICBM as early as next year.

In the early 1990s, Clinton faced a growing nuclear threat from North Korea, but he ultimately chose diplomacy and deals over the application of military force.

“I was determined to prevent North Korea from developing a nuclear arsenal, even at the risk of war,” Clinton wrote in his memoirs. He decided to change course after receiving “a sobering estimate of the staggering losses both sides would suffer if war broke out.”

Before North Korea had nuclear weapons, the anticipated casualty count in the event of a renewed conflict on the peninsula was in the hundreds of thousands. Instead of war, Clinton chose the Agreed Framework, promising billions of dollars in aid for a North Korean nuclear freeze.

“This is a good deal for the United States,” he said at the time. “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.”

The North Koreans negotiated in bad faith, however, offering false promises to convince the U.S. to unwittingly subsidize their nuclear program. The country began enriching nuclear material, and North Korea conducted its first nuclear test a little over a decade later. North Korea has since continued its steady march to becoming a fully-armed nuclear power. Evidence suggests that North Korea will achieve its nuclear weapons goals much sooner than analysts and experts previously expected.

North Korea advanced its program throughout the Bush and Obama administrations, bringing the U.S. to the risky situation it now faces.

“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Donald Trump declared to the White House press pool Tuesday. “They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
While the casualty count in a North Korean crisis might have been high in the 1990s, the cost of a conflict now that North Korea has nuclear weapons would be in the millions.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump promised to bring “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on North Korea if it doesn’t stop tests aimed at the developing a nuclear-tipped long-range ballistic missile. Than the next day he went even further to say that the “fire and fury” warning to North Korea may not have been “tough enough.”

Increased pressure from Washington may force the North to “be more assertive in terms of retaliatory measures,” with South Korea becoming hostage in this situation, he warned.

“Strikes may be carried out, targeting either US facilities in South Korea or the South Korean territory itself,” Zolotarev, who is the Deputy Director of the Institute for US and Canadian Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences, said.

“One shouldn’t forget that the South Korean capital, Seoul, is within the reach of (North Korean) artillery,” he added.

The expert stressed that claims by Korean People’s Army that they have plans worked out to strike US bases in Guam are “no bluff.”

“Every country’s military have to elaborate deployment strategies for any eventuality. It is politicians – not the military – who decide on whether or not to use such plans… So, if North Korean military talk of such plans, it means they actually have them,” he explained.

If the armed confrontation between the US and the North eventually breaks out, the Americans shouldn’t expect it to be a walk in the park, Zolotarev said.

“The North Korean military may inflict significant damage to US forces during a conventional conflict. Though their equipment is far beyond the American assets, their combat readiness and military morale are much higher,” he said.

‘N Koreans will sell last shirt for ICBM’
No threats from Washington or even the harshest sanctions will make Pyongyang abandon its plan to develop its own intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Aleksandr Tsalko, a Russian retired Air Force general, told RT.

“[The North Koreans] will sell the last shirt from their back, but will make [the missile],” Tsalko said.

However, he expressed doubt that Pyongyang currently has the capability to carry out nuclear strikes against American bases in Guam and elsewhere if attacked.

“They claim they have one, but having a long-range missile and being capable of delivering a nuclear strike are two different things. They need to make a nuclear warhead that their missile can carry, to learn how to hit a target with it at long range,” the co-founder of the Council for Foreign and Defense Policies said.

“I doubt North Korea now has a guidance system good enough for that. They can make a bang somewhere in the sea, but that’s all,” he added.

Despite the US being serious about North Korean claims that it tested an ICBM, the Russian military insists that its data shows that Pyongyang only fired a mid-range missile.

The former general said that while the US is overwhelmingly more powerful than North Korea, launching an attack at the country would come with a significant cost for America’s allies in the region, namely South Korea and Japan.

“However few short and intermediate-range missiles North Korea has, they are enough to cause unacceptable amount of damage, if a nuclear warhead is used,” he said.

“The Americans should have enough brains not to do it [attack Pyongyang]. As long as they don’t hurt North Korea, it will not take any action in return,” Tsalko said.

President Donald Trump does not need Congressional authorization to carry out a preemptive strike against North Korea, according to Republican Senator Lindsay Graham.
The Senator from South Carolina said he “violently” disagreed with his colleague Senator Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska), who said that a “pre-emptive war” on the Korean peninsula “would require the authorization of Congress.”

“There’s nothing in the Constitution limiting the ability to use force to protect America,” Graham told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday.

He also said that Trump is “mentally” ready to preemptively strike North Korea “if negotiations fail,” based on his conversation with the president.

“I think he’s there mentally,” Graham said. “He has told me this.”

Graham has been a vocal opponent of Trump on many other foreign policy issues, and has sponsored a bill that limited Trump’s ability to waive or lift sanctions against Russia without Congressional approval, which the president called an unconstitutional encroachment on his executive powers.

On Tuesday, Trump warned North Korea that it would “face fire and fury like the world has never seen” if Pyongyang continues threatening the US and its ally South Korea.

Since then, North Korea has threatened to bomb the US Pacific territory of Guam, saying that a plan to fire four missiles near Guam would be ready for Kim Jong-un’s consideration within days.

North Korean state media issued a statement Wednesday, warning Washington that a “preemptive strike is no longer the monopoly of the US.”

On Thursday, Trump doubled down on his earlier comments saying that his “fire and fury” warning to North Korea may not have been “tough enough.”

North Korea should “get their act together” or it will “be in trouble like few nations have ever been,” Trump said when speaking to reporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf resort, where he is spending his vacation.

While Congress is in recess, some lawmakers, including Senator Bernie Sanders, have blasted Trump over his rhetoric on North Korea, saying it could result in millions of people being killed.

“Trump’s bombastic rhetoric is not appropriate when we are dealing with the possibility of a nuclear war that could kill millions of people,” the senator from Vermont tweeted.

Trump’s threats came on the heels of a report in the Washington Post earlier this week, which said that US intelligence analysts have assessed that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead, which could potentially fit in a missile.

On Thursday, it was reported that the US has a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers stationed in Guam, should Donald Trump order it.

An attack by Rockwell B-1 Lancer supersonic heavy bombers from Andersen Air Force Base in the US territory of Guam makes up a major part of the plan, senior acting and retired military officials told NBC News.

The bomber strikes are “the best of a lot of bad options,” the outlet cited one senior intelligence official as saying.


President Trump Issues Even Harsher Statement Against N. Korea: ‘Things Will Happen to Them’
http://conservativefighters.com/news/president-trump-issues-even-harsher-statement-n-korea-things-will-happen/
After Thursday’s security briefing at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, President Donald Trump told reporters that perhaps his “fire and fury” admonishments to North Korea weren’t “tough enough.”

“They’ve been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years,” Trump continued, speaking of North Korea and their threats of nuclear warfare against the United States. “And it’s about time that somebody stuck up for this country and for the people of other countries.”

Considering the statement he released earlier in the week which said that if North Korea didn’t back off their threats, “they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Trump added, “If anything, maybe that statement wasn’t tough enough.”

North Korea claimed earlier in the week that they were “seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdirect the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”

Thursday saw Trump respond to the country’s threats in kind.

“I will tell you this, if North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous,” Trump promised. “They should be very nervous. Things will happen to them like they never thought possible.”

Speaking directly about Kim Jong-Un, Trump added, “He has disrespected our country greatly. He has said things that are horrific. And with me, he’s not getting away with it.”

“It’s not a dare,” Trump continued. “It’s a statement. It has nothing to do with dare. That’s a statement. He’s not going to go around threatening Guam, and he’s not gonna threaten the United States, and he’s not gonna threaten Japan. He’s not gonna threaten South Korea. No, that’s not a dare, as you say. That is a statement of fact.”

WAR DRUMS: North Korea Claims Strike Plan Against US Will Be Ready In ‘Days’
AUGUST 10, 2017
North Korean state media has outlined details of the country’s Guam strike plan expected to be ready by mid-August. The attack will reportedly include four missiles fired over Japan and landing within a few dozen kilometers of US territory. Continuing the heated exchange with US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media outlet KCNA said that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, will be presented with an elaborate plan of the attack by mid-August, Reuters reported.
The plan envisions launching four Hwasong-12 rockets that would “cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan,” the report says, citing General Kim Rak Gyom. The missiles are set to “fly 3,356.7km (2,085.8 miles) for 1,065 seconds” before practically reaching the shores of Guam, landing in the waters just “30-40km away.” Pyongyang also ridiculed Trump’s promise to counter any incoming threats from the North with “fire and fury,” labelling the remark a “load of nonsense” and in its turn vowing to act with “absolute force.”

Continuing the heated exchange with US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media outlet KCNA said that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, will be presented with an elaborate plan of the attack by mid-August, Reuters reported.

The plan envisions launching four Hwasong-12 rockets that would “cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan,” the report says, citing General Kim Rak Gyom.

The missiles are set to “fly 3,356.7km (2,085.8 miles) for 1,065 seconds” before practically reaching the shores of Guam, landing in the waters just “30-40km away.”

Pyongyang also ridiculed Trump’s promise to counter any incoming threats from the North with “fire and fury,” labelling the remark a “load of nonsense” and in its turn vowing to act with “absolute force.”

Trump’s initial remark courted controversy, prompting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reassure Americans that North Korea poses “no immediate danger” to US, while Defense Secretary James Mattis stated that Washington is sure in its military preeminence, urging North Korea to refrain from “consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”

Trump’s national security aide Sebastian Gorka compared the current escalation between US and North Korea to the Cuban crisis of 1962, calling on US lawmakers to back Trump’s stance in the unfolding crisis.

"This is analogous to the Cuban missile crisis. We need to come together," Gorka said in an interview to Fox and Friends on Wednesday, recalling that “during the Cuban missile crisis, we stood behind JFK.”

Echoing Trump’s remark, Gorka also warned the self-isolated nation against “testing America.”

Speaking about Washington’s military edge, he described the US as “not just a superpower” but a “hyperpower,” at the same time playing down the dangers posed by the North, calling it a “very, very insignificant threat in terms of scale.”

While Trump’s sharp tone has given rise to concern within the part of the US establishment, with Senator John McCain casting doubt that the US leader is ready back up his rhetoric with real actions, others appeared to be quite enthusiastic, estimating US chances in a face-to-face military confrontation.

Retired Gen. Tom McInerney argued that the US would emerge victorious, with its ability to level North Korea within 15 minutes in case it launches an attack on South Korea.

“If he [ Trump] gets our full nuclear retaliatory capability, within minutes after one round going into Seoul, there will be nothing left,” McInerney told Fox News on Monday.

Moscow, meanwhile, once again appealed for both sides to show restraint and to resume dialogue to defuse the tensions building up in the region.

"As we said, we want the tensions to ease, and we have to start seriously devising and inventing ways for a political dialogue on this issue," Russia’s UN envoy, Vasily Nebenzya, said on Wednesday, as cited by TASS.


Addressing the US administration in particular, Nebenzya said that he hopes Washington will “refrain from any moves that would provoke another party into actions that might be dangerous.”

The Japanese government responded to the new threat by saying that it deems itself to be fully within its rights to shoot down the North Korean rockets heading to Guam, as they pose an existential threat to Japan, the country’s defense minister Itsunori Onondera told Kyodo news agency on Thursday.

Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief government spokesman, said that Japan’s self-defense forces would “take necessary measures” in case of the military escalation outlined in the plan unveiled by KCNA.

"We can never tolerate this,” he said, stressing the importance of “US deterrent power.”

"President Trump has said all options are on the table and the government welcomes that policy,” Suga said, as cited by the Straits Times. Security experts estimate that the Japanese military currently lacks the ability to intercept the missile on its own.

Eddie Baza Calvo, the governor of Guam, meanwhile, called on residents and tourists visiting the state to proceed with their duties as usual, while admitting that the situation is growing tense.

"Obviously, for our administration, and for the people of Guam, there is concern and worry, but there is no panic," Calvo told Fox News on Thursday, adding that an "America community such as Guam, as well as other American communities, will be protected.”

Bill Clinton’s 1994 Leaked Deal With North Korea:’North Korea Will Freeze And Then Dismantle…'[VIDEO]
http://conservativefighters.com/politics/bill-clintons-1994-leaked-deal-north-koreanorth-korea-will-freeze-dismantle-video/
North Korea has always posed a threat to the U.S., although back in 1994, then-President Bill Clinton tried to conclude an agreement with the Republic that would cease their potentially violent agenda.

The agreement known as The 1994 Agreed Framework concluded that America will provide oil, two water reactors and one electric grid, plus a cash ‘prize’ of $5 billion, just so North Korea won’t practice it regime on the States.

If you’re asking me, this sounds more like a well-paid bribe.

“This is a good deal for the United States,” Clinton pointed out in 1994. “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.”

Due to his own personal fear, Bill decided that rationalizing with North Korea at the time would be much better than actually opposing their nuclear threats.
NKorea Flashback: Bill Clinton on his deal with North Korea "The world will be safer." Whoops.
9:26 PM - Aug 8, 2017
“NKorea Flashback: Bill Clinton on his deal with North Korea ‘The world will be safer.’ Whoops,” stated conservative Youtube entity Mark Dice.

North Korea knew America was already weak, agreeing to this ‘compromise,’ so they didn’t oblige the stipulations. As a result, they conducted their first nuclear test in 2006.

At the moment North Korea is in possession of around 60 nuclear weapons, waiting to be used, most likely against America alone.

Donald Trump didn’t care to see North Korea boost their confidence, so he responded that any potential attack from the Republic will be met with “with fire and fury unlike the world has ever seen.”

“(North Korean leader Kim Jong-un) has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before,” Trump elaborated.

North Korea has set its gaze on America’s largest cities, that hold and protect the country’s biggest military stations. As far as their missile launch is concerned, if it happens, we can expect it sometime in 2018.

Aside from Trump, Secretary of Defense James Mattis also paid attention to the problem, noting that he won’t rest until North Korea is defeated alongside its people, in case they refuse to rethink their aggressive intentions.
