China deploys 300,000 soldiers to North Korea’s doorstep

China deploys 300,000 soldiers to North Korea’s doorstep
Dan / CCL
The People’s Republic of China is reportedly moving 300,000 troops to its border with North Korea, in anticipation of hostilities between the rogue regime and the United States.
Given the 880 mile length of the border, this would amount to a concentration of one soldier for every 15.5 feet.
Missile defense system strengthened
South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo was the first news outlet to announce the buildup. It reported:
China is preparing for a potential war on the Korean Peninsula by reinforcing missile defenses near the border with North Korea, Radio Free Asia reported Friday.
RFA quoted a North Korean source in China as saying the Chinese military late last year deployed another missile defense battery at an armored division in Helong, west of Longjing in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.
Military units in Yanbian were relocated from Heilongjiang Province, thus adding 300,000 troops along the border, the source added.
The report went on to say that missile defense batteries will be deployed close to several North Korean reservoirs to augment the troop movement.

Russia builds four new air bases in Syria, deploys another 6,000 troops

Russia builds four new air bases in Syria, deploys another 6,000 troops
Contrary to Moscow’s promises, the Russian military is not pulling out of Syria, but adding four more air bases (one shared with Iran) and 6,000 more troops. On Dec. 11, 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin, followed by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, announced that the Russian military was to withdraw from Syria to home bases.
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that the reverse happened. A small number of units were indeed sent home, but they were sooner replaced, and instead of two bases – the air facility at Hmeimim and the naval installation at Tartus – four more Syrian air bases are being reconstructed and adapted for the use of the Russian air force. The attached map illustrates their locations:

Russia builds four new air bases in Syria, deploys another 6,000 troops
Feb 1, 2018 @ 10:00 Iranian Shiite militias in Syria, Russian air bases, Syria, US bases in Syria
Contrary to Moscow’s promises, the Russian military is not pulling out of Syria, but adding four more air bases (one shared with Iran) and 6,000 more troops.
On Dec. 11, 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin, followed by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu, announced that the Russian military was to withdraw from Syria to home bases. DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that the reverse happened. A small number of units were indeed sent home, but they were sooner replaced, and instead of two bases – the air facility at Hmeimim and the naval installation at Tartus – four more Syrian air bases are being reconstructed and adapted for the use of the Russian air force.
The attached map illustrates their locations:

The Tiyas Military Airbase (also known as T-4) in the Homs Governorate west of Palmyra, is the largest in Syria. The Russians are massively converting it into their main center of aerial operations in central Syria. Tyas will also provide backup as needed for Khmeimim, if drone, missile and mortar attacks recur.
Palmyra (or Tadmor) Airport provides air support for operations in eastern Syria including the Deir ez-Zour province. Moscow has agreed to share it with Iran. The Revolutionary Guards Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani is planning to make Palmyra the main assembly center for the transfer of pro-Iranian Iraqi Shiite militias from southern Iraq to Syria.
From Hama Military Airport west of Hama, the Russians will exercise control from the air of central Syria and the northern and central highways to Damascus. Still more importantly, this airport’s location places it just 125km as the crow flies (173km by road) from Russia’s Tartus naval base on the Mediterranean coast.
Shayrat, at Homs (which became notorious as the target of a massive US Tomahawk attack last year) is the main landing site for air transports which bring the Russian and Iranian forces troop reinforcements, weapons and spare parts.
More than 6,000 additional Russian military personnel are assigned to the four renovated bases in Syria – most of them air force and special operations personnel. Some have arrived.
The attached map shows how the new layer of Russian bases in western, central and eastern Syria faces the chain of military locations the Americans have decided to keep in northern Syria. The two powers are evidently in a race for bases in Syria. In strategic terms, the two powers are dividing a large swath of Syria between them as regions of influence, leaving any future ruler in Damascus with just about half of Syrian territory under government control.

U.S. military warns China and Russia will soon be able to shoot down satellites
January 31, 2018
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/national-security/military-warns-china-russia.htm?utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=NS1&utm_campaign=1517517273693&utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=NS1&utm_campaign=1517517273591
U.S. military warns China and Russia will soon be able to shoot down satellites
Ivan Cholakov / Shutterstock.com
In just two years, two of America’s greatest international rivals will develop the capacity to strike and destroy low-orbiting satellites with sophisticated anti-satellite weaponry, according to the Pentagon’s Joint Staff.

The Joint Staff intelligence directorate warned that “China and Russia will be capable of severely disrupting or destroying U.S. satellites in low-earth orbit” by 2020, representing a new threat for which Americans must prepare, officials familiar with the Joint Staff report told The Washington Free Beacon.

Satellite fight
Space warfare is not an entirely new frontier for human conflict; both the United States and Soviet Union developed systems to attack satellites from space during the Cold War. Space expert Michael J. Listner, founder of Space Law & Policy Solutions, explained these early developments:

The United States ASAT program, Program 437, took the form of the ASM-135 missile, or the “flying tomato can” and was intended by the Reagan administration to be a deterrent to the Soviet co-orbital system.

Since then, advancement has been streamlined. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said last year that Russia possesses a “diverse suite of capabilities to affect satellites in all orbital regimes.”

In his testimony before Congress last May, he warned:

We assess that Russia and China perceive a need to offset any U.S. military advantage derived from military, civil, or commercial space systems and are increasingly considering attacks against satellite systems as part of their future warfare doctrine. Both will continue to pursue a full range of anti-satellite weapons as a means to reduce U.S. military effectiveness.

Likewise, China has already proven their potential for this pioneering means of warfare.

“Ten years after China intercepted one of its own satellites in low-earth orbit, its ground-launched ASAT [anti-sattelite] missiles might be nearing operational service within the PLA,” Coats explained.

“Fragile and vulnerable”
According to a report by the National Institute for Public Policy, as of 2016, there were nearly 800 satellites in low earth orbit, owned and operated by 43 nations. Thirty-seven of these will soon be vulnerable to Chinese and Russian attacks due to their highly elliptical patterns of orbit.

Former Pentagon missile expert Steve Lambakis, who authored the policy study, described the challenge ahead for American lawmakers:

U.S. space systems are among the most fragile and vulnerable assets operated by the U.S. military.

“This vulnerable communications and data collection, processing, and distribution infrastructure is worth billions of dollars and is vital to nearly every activity of the United States and, increasingly, the armed forces of U.S. allies,” he stated.

Judgement day scenario
In a hypothetical hour-by-hour account detailing the loss of infrastructure which would inevitably accompany a massive attack on America’s space technology, BBC contributor Richard Hollingham notes that civilians would at first consider an attack a minor annoyance as satellite cable and international broadcasts would be lost.

Soon, however, unmanned aerial reconnaissance drones would lose contact with their operators, while military vessels at sea and in the air would be cut off from command and control. The president would have a swiftly escalating disaster on his hands and, as Hollingham conjectures, pilots would lose contact with traffic control towers and fishermen and other workers people working in remote locations would find themselves cut off from society without the use of sat-phones.

Understanding the true breadth of this cataclysmic scenario requires an understanding of the importance of Global Positioning Systems. Hollingham explains how modern society is held together by these “highly accurate atomic clocks in space:”

Our infrastructure is held together by time – from time stamps on complex financial transactions to the protocols that hold the internet together. When the packets of data passing between computers get out of sync, the system starts to break down. Without accurate time, every network controlled by computers is at risk. Which means almost everything.

When the GPS signals stopped, back-up systems (employing accurate clocks on the ground) kicked in. But, within a few hours, time had started to slip. A fraction of a second in Europe, compared to the US; a tiny difference between India and Australia. The cloud began to fail, web searches became slower, the internet started to grind to a halt. The first power cuts came later in the evening, as transmission networks struggled to balance demand. At computerized water treatment works, engineers switched to manual back-up systems. In major cities, traffic lights and railway signals defaulted to red, bringing transport to a standstill. Mobile phone services, already patchy, finally failed in the late afternoon.

Total, unmitigated disaster would follow, as the wellspring of contemporary society would dry up and leave North America a cold, dark continent.

While this may seem like a doomsday scenario devoid of reality, Americans should remember that there are two world powers working tirelessly to develop the anti-satellite technology needed to return the U.S. to the Dark Ages.

It’s possible — and we need to be prepared.

Russian jet flies within 5 feet of US Navy plane…
A Russian Su-27 jet performed an unsafe intercept of a US Navy surveillance plane while it was flying in international airspace over the Black Sea Monday, three defense officials told CNN. The American pilots reported that the Russian jet came within 5 feet of the US plane, according to two of the officials.
The Russian jet’s action forced the US Navy aircraft to end its mission prematurely, one of the officials said.
US Naval Forces Europe, which oversees US operations in the region, later confirmed the incident in a statement. “This interaction was determined to be unsafe due to the SU-27 closing to within five feet and crossing directly through the EP-3’s flight path, causing the EP-3 to fly through the SU-27’s jet wash,” Capt. Pamela Kunze, a spokesperson for US Naval Forces Europe told CNN.

Pentagon Warns Of China and Russia Soon Capable of Destroying U.S. Satellites
China and Russia are developing anti-satellite missiles and other weapons and will soon be capable of damaging or destroying all U.S. satellites in low-earth orbit, according to the Pentagon’s Joint Staff. The Joint Staff intelligence directorate, known as J-2, issued the warning in a recent report on the growing threat of anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons from those states, according to officials familiar with the assessment.
The report concludes that “China and Russia will be capable of severely disrupting or destroying U.S. satellites in low-earth orbit” in the next several years, said the officials. The capability to attack low-earth orbit satellites could be in place by 2020, the officials said. A Joint Staff spokesman declined to comment, citing a policy of not discussing internal reports. The J-2 report echoes a similar but less specific warning from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats in May.

RUMORS OF WAR: Is There A War Brewing Between Israel And Lebanon?
Jan 30, 2018 | 0 |
RUMORS OF WAR: Is There A War Brewing Between Israel And Lebanon?
Lebanon was warned recently by Israeli spokesperson and Israel Defense Force Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis that war could break out between the two countries if Iran continues its development of precision missiles within Lebanon. Manelis blames the Lebanese government and the “blind eye” of some in the international community who have stood by and watched as Hezbollah, the political and
militant arm of the Shiite Islamist political party based in Lebanon, has built an arsenal within the country. “Lebanon has become – both by its own actions and omissions and by a blind eye from many members of the international community – one large missile factory,” Manelis wrote. He went on to add that Iran is no longer just funding Hezbollah in Iran’s quest to destroy Israel but rather Iran is “now here.”

Report: Iran has fired nearly two dozen nuclear-capable missiles since 2015
January 28, 2018
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/foreign-policy/iran/report-iran-has-fired.htm?utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=automated&utm_campaign=ci3&bt_alias=eyJ1c2VySWQiOiAiZWY0MGMwZDctYmU0Ni00YjlhLThhNGUtZWNlOTA1ODUyOTJjIn0%3D
Report: Iran has fired nearly two dozen nuclear-capable missiles since 2015
Borna_Mirahmadian / CCL
The ineffectiveness of the Iran Deal, the chief foreign policy accomplishment of the Barack Obama administration, continues to show.

According to Fox News, a new report is soon to be released showing that since the deal was made in 2015, Iran has fired 23 missiles — many of which were nuclear-capable.

This provides support for President Trump and those who believe that the deal, which limited Iran’s nuclear capabilities in exchange for decreased sanctions on the Middle Eastern nation, did far too little.

The Report
The report is the result of a study done by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), a non-profit, non-partisan, national security and foreign policy think tank.

Behnam Ben Taleblue, author of the report and FDD senior Iran analyst, wrote that the study “identified as many as 23 ballistic missile launches by Iran since the conclusion of the July 2015 nuclear deal.” Sixteen of the missiles were nuclear-capable, according to Fox News, who was given access to the report.

The report goes on to suggest that the Trump administration’s threat — to remove the U.S. from the Iran deal by May if changes are not made — has been far more effective than the actual deal:

Out of all the ballistic missiles Iran fired in 2017, only four or five missiles can be considered nuclear-capable. In 2016, Iran fired 10 to 11 missiles than can be considered nuclear-capable. It is highly likely that the administration’s threat intimidated Tehran, altering its flight-testing calculus.

The report further states that the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps complained of testing delays due to fear of a possible U.S. retaliation.

Iran Deal
The Iran Deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is an agreement between the U.S., U.K., Russia, France, China, Germany, and Iran “to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful.” It was adopted in October 2015 and implemented in January 2016.

The nations who are a part of JCPOA agreed that the U.S. and several Eurasian countries would lift harsh economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for limitations to its nuclear program. The limitations were largely aimed at eliminating and reducing those aspects of Iran’s nuclear program that could lead to the production of weapons.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) plays the role of supervising Iran’s compliance.

The deal was considered the crowning foreign policy achievement of former President Obama, and it continues to have many supporters, who will be quick to note that the FDD report does not seem to indicate that Iran has violated the deal in any way. After all, the goal was to restrict Iran’s nuclear program, not its general production of missiles.

President Trump leading the critics
Critics of the deal, on the other hand, will retort that this is exactly the point. The most trenchant critic has been none other than President Trump, who has criticized the deal at every possible turn. He said earlier this month:

I have been very clear about my opinion of that deal. It gave Iran far too much in exchange for far too little. The enormous financial windfall the Iranian regime received because of the deal—access to more than $100 billion, including $1.8 billion in cash—has not been used to better the lives of the Iranian people. Instead, it has served as a slush fund for weapons, terror, and oppression, and to further line the pockets of corrupt regime leaders. The Iranian people know this, which is one reason why so many have taken to the streets to express their outrage[.]

In this same statement, Trump offered the parties to the deal the following ultimatum: agree to my provisions, or American will pull out.

He said:

First, it must demand that Iran allow immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors. Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon. Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon—not just for ten years, but forever. Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law—for the first time—that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran’s development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions.

The European nations involved in the deal, on the other hand, would like to see it continue, preferring to add to it rather than get rid of it altogether. Trump is giving all parties involved until May to work out a revised or new deal.

Russian Spy Ship Spotted off North Carolina Coast…

Russian Spy Ship Spotted off North Carolina Coast…
The Russian spy ship, the Viktor Leonov, was spotted 100 miles south-east of Wilmington, North Carolina, in international waters, according to a US military official, just days after the vessel was seen leaving the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain. Two US military officials said the Russian ship is being tracked by the destroyer USS Cole and other naval assets.
Outfitted with a variety of high-tech spy equipment and designed to intercept communications signals, the Viktor Leonov was observed operating in the Caribbean last week, a US defense official told CNN.
It was unclear at the time where the vessel was heading, but the official said the spy ship has typically traveled up the eastern seaboard near Cape Canaveral, King’s Bay, Norfolk and New London in the past.
All these locations are home to US naval installations.

Iran Threatens U.S. Navy Ships Amid Massive War Drills
Iranian military leaders claimed Monday that they threatened two American-led vessels in international waters amid a series of new war drills being carried out by the Islamic Republic, according to regional reports and U.S. military officials who confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon contact with the Iranian vessels. As Iran carries out a several days long series of war drills in the Sea of Oman, off the country’s southern border, military leaders claim to have warned off at least two vessels led by U.S.
coalition forces in the region. U.S. military officials confirmed being in contact with Iranian forces, which is just the latest in a series of provocative interactions between the Iranian military and United States. “One U.S. warship operating in the Gulf of Oman received a transmission from Iranian maritime forces announcing an Iranian exercise,” Cmdr. William Urban, a spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, told the Free Beacon Monday evening.

CIA Boss Hints At Preemptive Strike On North Korea…
Jan 23, 2018 | 0  |     
CIA Boss Hints At Preemptive Strike On North Korea…
The Central Intelligence Agency is briefing President Donald Trump on the risks and opportunities of a limited attack on North Korea, its director revealed on Tuesday.  CIA Director Mike Pompeo would not discuss the “wisdom of a preemptive strike” on Pyongyang or its nuclear weapons program, he told an audience at the conservative American Enterprise Institute. But in rare public remarks, Pompeo portrayed North Korea as an urgent priority for the agency, and disclosed aspects of its role in setting back Kim Jong Un’s nuclear program during his first year at Langley.
Kim is a rational man, Pompeo said the CIA had assessed. But it’s less clear that Kim takes seriously the prospect of a U.S. attack, something that could blunder the world into a devastating nuclear conflict. Pompeo would not answer if options exist for Trump to attack North Korea short of a nuclear war. Analysts warn a limited strike would lead to such a war should North Korea retaliate and prompt escalation. He indicated instead the administration was developing a range of options spanning from diplomacy to war, so Trump will not face a binary choice between inaction and potential nuclear devastation.

PROPHECY WATCH: Will Turkish Invasion of Syria Bring About Pre-Messianic Conflict With Russia?
Jan 23, 2018 | 0  |     
PROPHECY WATCH: Will Turkish Invasion of Syria Bring About Pre-Messianic Conflict With Russia?
Turkey launched a military incursion into neighboring Syria over the weekend, bringing Russian and Turkish soldiers into closer proximity in an already volatile region, making a 200-year-old prophecy of pre-Messianic conflict between Russia and Turkey appear to be closer than ever before. This 200-year-old prophecy was a closely guarded secret until just a few years ago and details described in the prophecy are strongly consistent with the situation developing to the North of Israel. A massive Turkish ground force crossed into the Afrin region of Syria to fight the Kurdish militia and push them out of Syria. The Turkish government claims their goal is to establish a 19-mile buffer zone against the Kurdistan Workers
Party (PKK), a militant group based in Syria. If the conflict intensifies, it could pit Turkey directly against Russia, which has boosted its military presence and bases in Syria in an effort to support the Syrian government in the country’s nearly seven-year-long civil war. A conflict between Turkey and Russia was predicted over 200 years ago by Rabbi Elijah ben Solomon Zalman, known as the Vilna Gaon, one of the greatest Jewish scholars of the 18th century who was also a known Kabbalist (mystic). Just before his death, the Vilna Gaon made a two-part prophecy that was kept secret, transferred orally from teacher to student for generations.

Trump warns America: Russia is undermining the U.S. on North Korea

Trump warns America: Russia is undermining the U.S. on North Korea
Gage Skidmore / CCL
The nuclear showdown between North Korea and the United States appears to be in a stalemate. Despite a number of global sanctions, Pyongyang still reportedly has access to coal and oil supplies, and this isn’t pleasing to Washington or European security forces.

Some, including President Trump, assert that Russia is undermining the international community’s attempts to economically isolate North Korea. Speaking in an exclusive interview with Reuters, the president claimed that Moscow is offsetting some of the progress made by China by giving Pyongyang access to energy supplies.

Russia has denied any wrongdoing.

Could these assertions weaken objectives to improve U.S.-Russia relations?

Trump Accuses Russia of Helping North Korea
Western European security sources told the newswire last month that Russian tankers supplied oil and coal to North Korea in the weeks following the sanctions. According to the sources, there was a minimum of three instances that Russia transferred cargoes at sea to North Korea that would violate the international penalties.

On Wednesday, President Trump reiterated these concerns to Reuters, warning that Russia is undermining the efforts by China, the U.S., and other regional players. He also praised Beijing for its measures but noted that the world’s second-largest economy could do a little bit more.

Trump said at the Oval Office in a 53-minute interview:

Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea. What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.

He [Vladimir Putin] can do a lot. But unfortunately we don’t have much of a relationship with Russia, and in some cases it’s probable that what China takes back, Russia gives. So the net result is not as good as it could be.

Russian leadership maintains that it has not contravened the sanctions installed by the United Nations Security Council. Beijing and Moscow both signed onto the sanctions imposed in 2017.

Trump Talks Other China, North Korean Issues
With a fresh can of Diet Coke on his desk, the president discussed other issues relating to China and North Korea.

He revealed that he was considering slapping a large fine on China over allegations of theft of intellectual property. The accusations are still being investigated.

One of the biggest challenges facing Trump’s second year in the White House will undoubtedly be Kim Jong Un and his nuclear artillery. When asked about meeting with the North Korean leader, Trump expressed doubts that face-to-face negotiations would be successful.

“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” the president said, citing his three predecessors for failing to settle the foreign policy file.

On many previous occasions, Trump has not dismissed direct communications with Kim.

In the end, the president wants a “peaceful” conclusion.

This month, Kim said he would be open to enter into talks with South Korea. The announcement surprised many observers, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who urged Kim to “tell me he wants to talk.”

Ahead of the Winter Olympics, North Korea announced that it would march with its southern neighbors under the same flag. North Korea is sending a delegation of 500 people to the Olympics, a diplomatic overture that could ease tensions and establish a further dialogue.

Trump needs a resolution quick. If it takes the Winter Olympics to achieve this, then the International Olympic Committee (IOC) may finally be useful for something rather than destroying economies and fleecing taxpayers.

Let’s hope this is the exception, and something useful comes out of the 2018 Olympic Games.

U.S. scientist says North Korea has up to 60 bombs at nuclear facility

U.S. scientist says North Korea has up to 60 bombs at nuclear facility
Image Source: Screenshot
The ongoing battle of words between the United States and North Korea has been ramping up for some time. It’s difficult to know how serious the situation is, as some of it has been fought on Twitter, with President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un taking shots at each other about “nuclear buttons.”

Now, however, one scientist says the threat is real. Sig Hecker, the former director of Los Alamos National Laboratory, has visited North Korea seven times and says he’s seen evidence that they have been progressing their nuclear weapons program; he estimates that the country has between 30 and 60 nuclear weapons available.

That’s shocking news, to say the least.

The Visits
Hecker was invited to visit Yongbyon, the secretive North Korean nuclear facility, in 2004. Since then, he has been back six more times to view their progress.

He spoke with CBS’ 60 Minutes on Sunday:

They bring in, and it’s a red metal box about yea big, about this thick. They open the metal box. They take out a white wooden box. White wooden box has a slide off top. So they slide off the top. I look in there. The director says, “Over here, this glass jar. That’s our product. That’s the plutonium.

Hecker would know plutonium when he sees it; as the man formerly responsible for United States nuclear development, he’s well-versed in what to look for.

The scientist says the box handed to him was real.

Robert Carlin, a former CIA employee who has studied the North Koreans for over 40 years, says the strange idea of North Korea showing an American scientist their nuclear secrets isn’t so strange after all.

Nobody would believe them otherwise, right? People would say, “Oh, they’re just posturing. Oh, it’s propaganda.” So how are you going to convince the Americans? You get an expert who knows plutonium when he sees it and you, you hand it to him. You say, “Here it is. What do you think?”

What Does It All Mean?
Secretary of Defense James Mattis has said the U.S. cannot accept North Korea as a nuclear power.

Kim Jong Un has responded by declaring that North Korea will never give up its program and will continue to see the United States as its biggest threat.

Carlin says there’s a basic misunderstanding in Washington about how to view the North Korean nuclear debate.

“I think they understand us better than we understand them” he told the Daily Mail. “We’re still weighed down with a lot of stereotypes and they’re going to trip us up.”

The situation is clearly a tense one and hopefully, leaders of both countries can arrive at a reasonable path for moving forward.

Russia carries out massive military drill with thousands of troops simulating attack
Russia has sparked fears of a potential war looming as thousands of troops simulated a deadly attack during huge military drills. Pictures from the Khmelyovka training ground show soldiers in a massive range of war scenarios, including detonating weapons on the battlefield. Huge explosions are seen in some of the photos, blasting sand from the beach as fireball erupted.

Troops were seen testing out UR-77 Meteroit mine clearing systems, or working with an array of pistols and guns. And flares filled the air with smoke as soldiers advanced on their targets under the cover of the thick black plumes. The drills involved more than1,000 soldiers, including the engineer and sapper units of the Russian Navy’s Baltic Fleet.

Kim Jong-un could launch nuclear strike on US in less than Six Months
North Korea could be able to launch a nuclear attack on the United States in less than six months despite sanctions starting to have a large effect on the population, East Asia expert Gordon Chang warned. North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un warned he was ready to press the “nuclear button” on his desk to hit the United States, possibly kickstarting World War 3.
But Mr Chang said the international community has between three to six months before North Korea reaches nuclear capability to defuse tensions. He said: “Kim Jong-un actually doesn’t have a button he can push right now. Maybe three months, six months from now, he can pick up the phone and launch a nuke at the United States. “The one thing Kim can do is launch an electromagnetic pulse device: he doesn’t need heat shielding, he doesn’t need guidance. He could do a lot of damage to the United States.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Chinese President orders army to prepare for War…
In the clip, filmed in Central Theatre Command on Wednesday, more than 7,000 Chinese servicemen await Xi’s New Year orders. As the camera pans through the crowd, it gives an insight into how regimented the world’s largest army is. Speaking in front of thousands of troops and over 300 perfectly organized military vehicles, Xi – the Communist Party’s General Secretary – ordered his forces to prepare for the event of war.

“Here I give my orders: the military at all levels should strengthen military training and war preparedness. “The military should continue to implement actual and joint training under combat conditions, and continue to conduct strict training in accordance with the Outline for Military Training and Evaluation. “The military should hold training and competition with mass participation, strengthen tailored and adversarial training, enhance real combat capabilities, and master the skills to fight and win.”

South Korea seizes second ship suspected of illegally bringing oil to North Korea
South Korea has seized Another ship suspected of transferring oil to North Korea in violation of international sanctions. The seizure was the second to be revealed by South Korea within a few days. A South Korean customs official said The Panama-flagged tanker, KOTI, was seized at Pyeongtaek-Dangjin port, on the west coast. A marine official said the seizure had happened recently. A foreign ministry spokesman confirmed that an investigation was underway.
He said: “The government has been in close consultations with related countries and ministries to thoroughly implement the sanctions by the UN security council.” On Thursday, China blocked a U.S. effort at the United Nations to blacklist six foreign-flagged ships, a U.N. Security Council diplomat said. China’s Foreign Ministry, responding to a question from Reuters on the blocking, said Beijing always fully and strictly implemented Security Council resolutions.

Kim Jong Un says he has a nuclear button on his desk to nuke the U.S. mainland
January 1, 2018

Kim Jong Un says he has a nuclear button on his desk to nuke the U.S. mainland
Image Source: Screenshot
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un made a disturbing admission during his New Year’s Day speech.

Kim claimed that North Korea had full nuclear capabilities, calling them a “reality.” He added that he had the nuclear strike button on his desk as proof.

Happy New Year.

Historic achievement?
Kim claimed Monday during his annual address that North Korea had achieved the historic achievement of “completing” its nuclear forces.

Directing his remarks specifically at the United States, he said, according to a translation provided by The Associated Press:

The U.S. should know that the button for nuclear weapons is on my table. The entire area of the U.S. mainland is within our nuclear strike range. … The United States can never start a war against me and our country.

Kim added that the regime wasn’t finished producing and stockpiling weaponry.

“We need to mass-produce nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and accelerate their deployment,” he said.

The North Korean leader spoke in front of several microphones, but no nuclear button could be discerned in the footage.

Watch the report, via the English language version of EuroNews:

Mounting tensions
Tests initiated by the regime have escalated tensions within the region, and have caused concern in South Korea and Japan — both loyal U.S. allies. Fox News reported:

Pyongyang’s frequent missile launches in 2017, along with its sixth nuclear test, have ratcheted up tensions with the United States. The tests were the focus of fiery back-and-forth arguments between North Korea and President Donald Trump, who has called Kim “Little Rocket Man.”

Olive branch
Kim tempered his saber-rattling with an olive branch, purportedly offered to indicate a desire to improve relations with South Korea. This has been a matter of concern lately, given that South Korea is scheduled to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. He indicated that the games could provide an opportunity for North Korea to send a delegation.

“The Winter Olympic games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” he said.

Given recent defections to the south by North Korean soldiers, it’s doubtful that the regime will ever send a delegation. Its members would also more than likely defect and never return.

“We’ll see”
When asked for comment, President Donald Trump characteristically kept his cards close to his vest.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” he responded when asked while hosting a New Year’s Eve party at his Palm Beach, Fla. Mar-a-Lago estate.

Kim could learn from Trump. If the dictator is to be believed, we now know precisely where the North Korean nuclear button is located — and that’s where we can aim our own arsenal.

GOG AND MAGOG WATCH: Turkey and Russia sign deal on supply of S-400 missiles

GOG AND MAGOG WATCH: Turkey and Russia sign deal on supply of S-400 missiles
Turkey and Russia have signed an accord for Moscow to supply Ankara with S-400 surface-to-air missiles, CNN Turk and other media reported on Friday, finalizing a deal the two countries have been working on for more than a year.  The S-400 deal, reportedly worth about $2.5 billion, has caused concern in the West because Turkey is a member of NATO and the system cannot be integrated into NATO’s military architecture.
It is the latest in a series of moves by Ankara to boost its defense capabilities as it faces threats from Kurdish and Islamist militants at home and conflicts across its borders in Syria and Iraq. No details of the accord were available and officials were not immediately available to comment. But Sergei Chemezov, head of the Russian state conglomerate Rostec, told the Kommersant daily on Wednesday Russia would supply Turkey with four batteries of S-400s under the deal.

WAR DRUMS: North Korea says it will continue preparing ‘pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force’

WAR DRUMS: North Korea says it will continue preparing ‘pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force’
North Korea promised on Saturday to continue preparing “pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force” in the face of U.S. “blackmail,” according to The Associated Press. “Do not expect any change in its policy,” the state’s official media arm, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Saturday. “Its entity as an invincible power can neither be undermined nor be stamped out.” KCNA said North Korea has been working toward “bolstering the capabilities for self-defense and pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force,” in response to ongoing “nuclear threat and blackmail and war drills” by the U.S.
North Korea has tested missiles at least 16 times in 2017, and threatened the use of a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit on a missile. More than one North Korean missile flew into the air space of neighboring Japan, and new models have flown to heights that some military analysts predict could reach the mainland U.S. Increased provocations from North Korea have led to the implementation of crippling sanctions from the United Nations in the form of trade and crude oil bans, and bombastic rhetoric from President Trump.

China spotted illegally selling oil to North Korea

China spotted illegally selling oil to North Korea
U.S. spy satellites reportedly captured photos of Chinese ships illegally selling oil to North Korean boats some 30 times since October.  Satellite images released by the U.S. Department of Treasury appeared to show vessels from both countries illegally trading oil in the West Sea, The Chosun Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing South Korean government sources. North Korea was barred in September by the United
Nations Security Council from importing natural gas and had its crude oil imports capped in response to Kim Jong Un’s nuclear missile program. The U.S. Treasury in November also sanctioned North Korea’s Maritime Administration and its transport ministry, in addition to six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their vessels, in an effort to block the rogue regime’s transportation networks.

South Korea holding crew of ship that allegedly gave oil to North Koreans
The crew of a Hong Kong-flagged ship that allegedly violated U.N. sanctions by transferring oil to a North Korean vessel in October is being held in South Korea until a full inspection is sent to the Security Council, officials announced Friday.  The Lighthouse Winmore is believed to have transferred about 600 tons of refined petroleum products to the North Korean ship, the Sam Jong 2, in international waters in the East China Sea on Oct. 19, after leaving the South Korean port of Yeosu,
a South Korean Foreign Ministry official told the Associated Press. The announcement came on the same day Defense Secretary James Mattis told Fox News that he believes the world will exert “increased pressure” on North Korea in the coming months following the recent maritime incidents. South Korean customs authorities said they boarded the ship and interviewed crew members after they returned to Yeosu on Nov. 24.

North Korea preparing to launch satellite into orbit to defy the U.S. and Trump
December 27, 2017
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/foreign-policy/north-korea/north-korea-launch-satellite.htm?utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=NS1&utm_campaign=1514493135099&utm_source=boomtrain&utm_medium=NS1&utm_campaign=1514493134971
North Korea preparing to launch satellite into orbit to defy the U.S. and Trump
Image Source: Screenshot
Kim Jong Un doesn’t seem to get the message; he just keeps ratcheting up tensions on the Korean Peninsula. His latest move has certainly caught the attention of the United States and its allies.
Intelligence reports from South Korea show that the North Koreans are prepared to continue their provocative moves. Despite just being sanctioned by the United Nations at the urging of the U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, the Kim regime is now planning to launch a satellite into orbit. 
Kim’s New Satellite
Fox News reports:
“Through various channels, we’ve recently learned that the North has completed a new satellite and named it Kwangmyongsong-5,” the Joongang Ilbo daily reported, quoting a South Korean government source.
A satellite is a potential precursor to new missile tests or even a missile test in disguise. It could also be, as the South Koreans expect, a means of launching new reconnaissance technology, such as cameras and telecommunications devices into orbit.
U.N. Sanctions
In response to North Korea’s ballistic missile test, the United Nations voted to sanction North Korea, and the U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to do so. Nikki Haley, Trump’s appointment as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, pushed the vote through the international body.
To no one’s surprise, North Korea was not happy about this development — they called the sanctions an “act of war.” Reuters reports:
The latest U.N. sanctions against North Korea are an act of war and tantamount to a complete economic blockade against it, North Korea’s foreign ministry said on Sunday, threatening to punish those who supported the measure.
North Korea’s ballistic missile launch, which demonstrated that North Korea could reach the continental United States, came after a nuclear warhead test in September of this year. Kim seems to be fixated on attempting to intimidate South Korea, the United States, and other allies in the region.
China, of course, is the exception to this rule.
What’s Next?
How soon would the launch take place? It’s unknown, but as The Right Scoop opines, Kim Jong-Un’s birthday is coming up, and it was celebrated by a launch last year:
The February 2016 launch occurred just days before the birthday of the country’s former leader, Kim Jong-il. It would certainly seem reasonable to expect they are going for the same thing again.
If this prediction is true, the Trump administration has just about a month to prepare its response to Kim Jong Un’s launch. Any effective response, however, requires engaging with China, the only country sympathetic to North Korea in the region.
China seems to use North Korea as both a bargaining chip and a smoke screen.
When it wants to negotiate with Western powers, generally led by the United States, it uses its influence over North Korea as a means of offering up concessions.
In the event that China has done something that the West or the larger international community may not like, North Korea will suddenly ratchet up tensions again and act as a distraction.
That seems odd, given that China is a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. Especially when the sanctions vote was unanimous, right?
Well, recent reports demonstrate that the Chinese are defying previous UN sanctions which prohibit the sale of oil to North Korea.
The Telegraph reports:
South Korean officials told the Chosun Ilbo that the ships were allegedly trading in the West Sea between China and South Korea in a bid to bypass strict United Nations sanctions on oil exports to the pariah regime over its ongoing nuclear and weapons programme.
Granted, these are probably smugglers. But the Chinese government is the only authority in the area to prevent these illicit actions. If they want it stopped, they can do so.
North Korea ought to be careful.
The last time a U.S. president was this focused on dismantling a regime, the Berlin Wall fell along with the entire U.S.S.R.
South Korean soldiers at the DMZ were able to crawl to Song’s position hours later and carry him to safety. Officials have not confirmed which one of the four defectors is carrying anthrax antibodies.
Analysts have not ruled out the possibility that the North Korean carrier could have been infected on a farm or by working with animals. The World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems for Public Health reports that anthrax on the Korean Peninsula occurs at a “sporadic” rate similar to the U.S.  
In the last 46 years, however, there have been just 236 cases of anthrax reported in the U.S., suggesting that the North Korean defector’s chances of naturally contracting the disease are extremely low.
The apprehensive atmosphere accompanying the recent discovery of an advanced biological warfare system in North Korea occurs just weeks before tens of thousands of international guests are expected to visit South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The UN, this time with support from China and Russia, have stepped up sanctions against the rebellious nation in hopes that Kim Jong-Un’s regime will negotiate or limit its expansion of weapons of mass destruction.

RUMORS OF WAR: Defense Secretary Warns ‘Storm Clouds Are Gathering’ Over Korean Peninsula

RUMORS OF WAR: Defense Secretary Warns ‘Storm Clouds Are Gathering’ Over Korean Peninsula
“Storm clouds are gathering” over the Korean Peninsula, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declared Friday. And as diplomats try to resolve the nuclear standoff, he told soldiers that the U.S. military must do its part by being ready for war. Without forecasting a conflict, Mattis emphasized that diplomacy stands the best chance of preventing a war if America’s words are backed up by strong and prepared armed forces. “My fine young soldiers, the only way our diplomats can speak with authority and be believed is if you’re ready to go,”
Mattis told several dozen soldiers and airmen at the 82nd Airborne Division’s Hall of Heroes, his last stop on a two-day pre-holiday tour of bases to greet troops. Mattis’ comments came as the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved tough new sanctions against North Korea, compelling nations to sharply reduce their sales of oil to the reclusive country and send home all North Korean expatriate workers within two years. Such workers are seen as a key source of revenue for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s cash-strapped government.

RUMORS OF WAR: Top Marine General Warns ‘There’s a war coming’…

RUMORS OF WAR: Top Marine General Warns ‘There’s a war coming’…
The stated goals of the Marine Corps’ newest rotational force in Norway are to enhance partnerships with European allies and improve the service’s ability to fight in cold weather. But on a brief visit to the 300-member unit ahead of Christmas, the commandant and the sergeant major of the Marine Corps both described the strategic role the small unit fills — and the fact that a peacetime mission can be preface to combat if circumstances change.
The Norwegian Home Guard base near Trondheim that houses the Marine rotational force was the first stop on Gen. Robert Neller’s annual Christmas tour. The stop was a new one for the tour. The first Norway rotation, from 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, deployed in January and was replaced by a new unit from 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines, in late August. Neller emphasized to the Marines that they should remain ready to fight at all times, predicting a “big-ass fight” on the horizon. “I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming,” Neller said. ” … You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”

DEVELOPING: US preparing attack on North Korea
The US is preparing plans to deliver a “bloody nose” attack against North Korea to knock out its nuclear weapons program.  The White House has “dramatically” ramped up its military plans amid fears that diplomacy won’t thwart North Korean despot Kim Jong Un from making good on his threats, sources told the UK’s Telegraph.
One option is destroying a launch site before the rogue regime uses it for a new missile test, while another is targeting weapons stockpiles, according to the news outlet. The Trump administration hopes that pre-emptive action would show the trigger-happy dictator that the United States is serious about stopping his bellicose pursuits and persuading him to negotiate.

WAR DRUMS: US commandos train to capture North Korean nukes
U.S. military forces reportedly trained earlier this month for a mission that would put them on North Korean soil, with the objective of “infiltrating” and “removing weapons of mass destruction,” according to foreign military sources.  Revealing photos of a recent exercise, dubbed Warrior Strike IX, show a U.S. military unit known as “The Black Jack Brigade” training alongside their South Korean counterparts at Camp Stanley, in Korea.
The pictures were featured in a post on the unit’s Facebook page. The images show soldiers training with night-vision equipment, armored vehicles and full-face protective gear, including gas masks. Descriptions of the event suggest soldiers practiced for eventualities such as transporting injured comrades and capturing combatants. According to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, which quoted anonymous military sources,

Japan is building missile bases on islands off the coast of China in a bid to counter the rising threat from its communist neighbor.  The country’s military – which has long been restricted by its post-Second World War pacifist constitution – has been constructing anti-aircraft and anti-ship weapons on Ishigaki, 200 miles from eastern China and just off the coast of Taiwan. It is one of many islands in the Yaeyama archipelago to be garrisoned by the Japanese, with soldiers bringing new weapons and radar technology to the area.
The Japanese army – or Ground Self-Defense Force – told the Wall Street Journal it plans to deploy between 500 and 600 soldiers to Ishigaki to operate a missile system there. It comes after the country announced its intention to buy offensive air-to-surface missiles to counter North Korea’s rising military threat. Defence secretary Itsunori Onodera said the ministry intends to request a special budget for the fiscal year starting April 2018 to purchase long-range cruise missiles to be deployed on fighter jets.

Former Chinese general warns that war could break out with North Korea anytime between now and March
War could break out in the Korean peninsula at “any time” within the next three months, a retired Chinese army general has warned. Lieutenant General Wang Hongguang urged his country to mobilize defenses in anticipation of conflict in the region, amid continued tensions over North Korea‘s nuclear weapons programme. “The war on the Korean Peninsula might break out anytime between now and March next year,”
Lt-Gen Wang told an annual forum hosted by the Chinese Global Times newspaper. He added: “China should be psychologically prepared for a potential Korean war, and the north-east China regions should be mobilized for that.  “Such mobilization is not to launch a war, but for defensive purposes.” Song Zhongping, a Chinese military expert, told the newspaper defensive mobilization would include deploying anti-missile weapons to border areas that could be affected by nearby battles. Humanitarian aid would also be prepared for North Korean refugees, he added.

Kim Jong-un testing new warheads loaded with Anthrax…
North Korea is conducting biological weapons experiments to test the possibility of loading anthrax-laden warheads on its intercontinental ballistic missiles, it has been reported.  Japan’s Asahi newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing an unidentified person connected to South Korean intelligence, that North Korea was conducting biological weapons experiments to test the possibility of loading anthrax-laden warheads on its intercontinental ballistic missiles.
The Asahi report said the U.S. government was aware of the tests, which were meant to ascertain whether the anthrax bacteria could survive the high temperatures that occur during warheads re-entry from space. The news that North Korea may have been testing anthrax-laden warheads comes as South Korean President Moon Jae-in is seeking to soothe relations with China and the North before the Winter Olympics in South Korea in February.

RUMORS OF WAR: China Must Prepare for Imminent War With North Korea
It isn’t only the United States that could soon see itself engaged in a deadly conflict with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. China also is at risk of an imminent war with North Korea, warned some of China’s most prestigious national security experts at a conference in Beijing this week. “Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades,” said Shi Yinhong, director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing and an adviser to the State Council of China on diplomacy issues since February 2011, during the conference. “North Korea is a time bomb. We can
only delay the explosion, hoping that by delaying it, a time will come to remove the detonator,” he said, reported the South China Morning Post Saturday. Wang Hongguang, former deputy commander of the Nanjing Military Region, an important military region, warned that a war could begin as soon as March, when South Korea and the United States are slated to hold annual military drills. “It is a highly dangerous period,” Wang said during the conference. “Northeast China should mobilize defenses for war.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel Warns Hamas Of Coming Destruction In Next Few Months

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel Warns Hamas Of Coming Destruction In Next Few Months
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman says Tel Aviv will no longer allow a game of “ping-pong” rocket exchanges to take place with Hamas.  “In the next few months all existing tunnels will be blown up and destroyed” by new technologies invented by Israel, Lieberman said during an interview with RTVI, adding that Israel is aiming to put an end to the “ping-pong” of rocket exchanges.  His comments
come amid increased tensions between Israel and Palestinians – who are supported by Hamas – after US President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. According to Lieberman, Hamas is solely responsible for the escalating violence in the Gaza Strip and argues that a large-scale attack from Hamas is inevitable, stating that “should Hamas be faced with the alternative of losing power or attacking Israel, without a doubt, Hamas will choose another conflict with Israel.”

Defector warns North Korea ready to send “suicide bomber army” with “nuclear backpacks” across the world
North Korea is ready to send a “suicide bomber army” equipped with “nuclear backpacks” across the world, a defector has warned.   North Korea has a secret army of brainwashed “robots” who “live and die” for despot Kim Jong-un, the London-based defector revealed. Joo-il Kim exclusively told Express.co.uk North Korea was not militarily strong enough to bomb their rivals in the traditional sense
but were ready to “infiltrate the free world” with a crack squad of suicide bombers. Mr Kim, who lives in New Malden, south London along with a hundreds-strong population of other North Korean defectors, explained the group of specially-selected killers were the hermit state’s biggest asset. He said: “The top level leaders won’t wage war. They know they can’t win the war.
