North Korea


#1

For all their bluster, of course less the very Trump base, nobody is scared of a tin pot dictator who’s economy (GDP) is below what they spend on their pets annually.

But the unnecessary provocations of Trump are a far cry from statesmanship/diplomacy. Anybody can get pissed and start swinging and is what thugs who lack any self control do.

SEOUL, South Korea — In the dead of night on Saturday, American B-1B long-range bombers, escorted by F-15 fighter jets, prowled along North Korea’s east coast, in one of the United States military’s most daring maneuvers on the peninsula in decades.

Trump is taunting North Korea’s government. Hopefully they are smarter than he.

Of course you would ignore the topics at hand:

I wonder if Kim knows the his nation would cease to exist should he do the unthinkable.

North Korea has upped its war talk once again, warning the United States it faces an “unimaginable” military strike.

The Kim Jong-un regime was reacting to the continued drills being carried out by the US and South Korea in the region.

Next week the allies will carry out Courageous Channel in which Americans in the area will practice being evacuated in the event of a “crisis”.

Although it is carried out twice a year, it has heightened fears of military conflict.

North Korea’s state news agency said in a statement: "The US is running amok by introducing under our nose the targets we have set as primary ones.

“The US should expect that it would face unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”

Last week, North Korea was spotted moving multiple missiles sparking fears of a fresh launch.

A US spy satellite captured images of missiles mounted on launchers being moved out of a hangar near the capital Pyongyang last Friday, it was claimed.

American and South Korean intelligence agencies are now preparing for the Kim Jong-un regime to carry out a new provocation in defiance of worldwide condemnation.

It had been expected the most likely date for a new missile launch would be October 10, the anniversary of Kim’s political party.

But that date passed without any notable military movements.

However the new satellite images suggest Kim will go ahead with another test of its intercontinental ballistic missiles.

A source told South Korean newspaper The Dong-A Ilbo: “The North may carry out a simultaneous launch of ICBM and IRBM within a few days in protest against the U.S.'s show of military might.”

The US and her ally South Korea have carried out a series of military drills recently.

Two US Air Force supersonic heavy bombers were flown over the Korean peninsula , despite threats from North Korea to shoot down American planes.

Two B-1B Lancers based in Guam flew a mission in the vicinity of the Sea of Japan, staging the first night-time joint aviation exercises with Japan and South Korea.

In response, Kim Jong-un ’s government warned the joint exercise had ‘hardened our determination that the U.S. should be tamed with fire’.

The government said the military drills ‘lets us take our hand closer to the trigger for taking the toughest countermeasure’.

In August, North Korea threatened to fire a salvo of intermediate range missiles toward the U.S. Pacific island territory.

Guam is a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers that periodically fly missions over the divided Korean Peninsula.

Yesterday, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said there’s ‘great concern’ about Americans who live in Guam.

Speaking at a White House news conference he said: “Right now we think the threat is manageable. Let’s hope that diplomacy works.”

The fresh threat was published in North Korean state media.

It also said that North Korea has ‘already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defence including a salvo of missiles into waters near the US territory of Guam’.

It is unlikely to have any effect on next week’s planned major joint-navy drill between Sourth Korea and the U.S.

In a statement the US 7th Fleet said the USS Ronald Regan aircraft carrier and two US destroyers would take part in the drill alongside South Korean Navy vessels.

IPH strikes again!!!

I really hope we don’t have another Haiphong Harbor coming. The idea of an unstable overgrown child having nuclear weapons and an endlessly stated goal of taking its neighbor to the south, is unsettling.

I am unconcerned with Trump sabre rattling- it’s two adolescents shouting at each other; I am very concerned that one or the other will use a pretext to start a war in which tens, or even hundreds of thousands in S. Korea will die.


#6

I’m rather surprised you’d speak of Trump this way. :wink:

There’s also innocent relatives of theirs in North Korea at risk in any event.


#7

They’re both adolescents- I never liked Trump. He’s weird, he’s juvenile, and thank God there are people like Kelly to keep him controlled.

That said, he is still preferable to Socialists, er, Democrats.:wink:


#8

Trump is president today for 2 reasons.

  1. He’s not a democrat/progressive.
  2. He’s not Hillary Clinton.

The Democrats still in denial elected Trump with the push to the outer limits of progressivism.

Deplorable a label used by the democrats is becoming a badge of honor for many and a rallying call for all non progressive/non democrat Americans.


#9

True enough, but for so many on both sides, Trump/Clinton was the worst case of “lesser of two evils” in our life times.


#10

Indeed, which is what has so many concerned (many within his own party) with regards to nuclear power.


#11

You happen to be as fair and balance as the leftist media , you just earned your democratic merit badge ! :laughing: quack ,quack ,quack . Did ignoring the bullies in school help you much or did they still continue to take your lunch money daily ? :wink:


#12

Cherry picking comments to make a point is the media as well as the lefts way of reporting and intrepreting events.


#13

A specific duty for true journalists is to report truthfully and to avoid one-sided, distorted or alarmist stories. The leftist media wants to misinform, divert, blandly lie and are dangerous provocateurs with malice intent !


#14

The sad part are there are so few TRUE journalists today.

At one time they reported the news, today they interpret it for you and tell you how you should think about the news.


#15

True cowards one and all !!!


#16

Kim isn’t crazy.He is to see what he can get away with along with being enabled by Communist China . Trump should do to Kim what Reagan did to Quadafi . A missil

e into his house. If the Commie Chincs won’t rein him in Trump should threaten to give6 full diplomatic recognition to the Real China in Formosa and establish an embassy


#17

It’s called survival. North Korea and Iran see what the US did to Hussein and Gaddafi. Best to have a nuclear deterrent.


#18

NKorea set up this contest in the signing of an armistice rather than a peace treaty. He has always pushed for unification but always insisted that it would be under communist authority. He has never been live and let live…


#19

Why so provocative? North Korea isn’t going to nuke anybody, one launch and they’re a grease spot. China has their own national security interests in the status quo.


#20

The status quo of course is the 27000 US troops permanently assigned to defend the 38th parallel… should the US turn their back and walk away, have no fear, Kims determination for a unified peninsula under communist rule will be realized. The provocation is his constant threats… the problem is that everyone has pandered to these thugs and given in to their demands for so long… we now have a real problem on our hands… Next up the totally harmless and compliant Iran and their quest only for peaceful nuclear power… on the tip of an ICBM.
