War With North Korea A Very Real Possibility

As North Korea announces that it has successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb, the situation on the Korean peninsula is approaching the point of no return. Lets just recap some facts here.

China has warned North Korea that it will not come to its aid if it launches the first strike.

North Korea launched a missile over Japan to prove it can strike Guam.

North Korea has stepped up missile tests and has been launching tests every few weeks.

North Korea has 100,000 pieces of artillery aimed at Seoul, South Korea.

The United States has been running drills practicing using tactical nuclear weapons along the DMZ that separates North and South Korea in response to the nuclear threats coming from the North.

North Korea has plans to detonate a nuclear warhead over the West Coast of the United States causing a massive EMP blast that would collapse the entire electrical grid of the west coast.

North Korea is constantly defying China and the United Nations.

It is in my estimation that China has lost control over North Korea and that a war with the North is a very viable possibility.

President Trump is moving to put serious financial pressure on China.

North Korea: Headlines Largely Ignored By The Mainstream Media

The American Mainstream Media would like to paint President Trump in a negative light when it comes to dealing with North Korea, however the President is faced with a lingering and festering problem that has been ignored and allowed to metastasize for decades. One would be surprised to learn that many Southeast Asian countries have also had enough of North Korea’s provocations.

The Korea Times:

“Southeast Asian and Asia-Pacific countries are “arm-in-arm” in pressing North Korea harder, as seen from the statement released at the end of the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), analysts said Wednesday.

The experts speculated the ASEAN nations especially played a role in pushing internationally isolated Pyongyang to observe U.N. resolutions in the ARF Chairman’s Statement.

It summarizes the highlights of the annual security forum held in Manila, the Philippines, where foreign ministers from 10 ASEAN member nations and 17 Asia-Pacific countries gathered from Sunday to Tuesday.

The ministers “expressed their grave concern” over North Korea’s two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests on July 4 and 28, as well as its two nuclear tests in 2016 and shorter-range ballistic missile launches,” according to the statement.

It read that the ministers urged North Korea to “immediately comply fully with its obligations” under the relevant U.N. Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. They include Resolution 2371 approved on Aug. 5 to punish Pyongyang’s ICBM tests in July.”

North Korea has stepped up its saber-rattling, claiming it will have plans drawn up to launch a warning shot at U.S. Forces in Guam.

The Korea Times:

“In a tit-for-tat of bellicose rhetoric, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said its strategic force is “seriously examining” the plan for an “enveloping strike” at Guam with four Hwasong-12 missiles “in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”

It said in an English statement that the missiles will cross the sky above the Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi prefectures of Japan and fly 3,356.7 kilometers and land 30 to 40 km away from Guam.

The North’s military will finalize the plan by mid-August and report it to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, and await his order, the report said.”

I must admit to my dismay, that my own personal technical assessments of North Korea’s ability to miniaturize its Nuclear Warheads may have been wrong. A report from the Defense Intelligence Agency state that North Korea can now make nukes small enough to fit on its Hwasong weapon platform, however I still maintain that they have not yet demonstrated the technical capabilities to produce a reliable atmospheric reentry vehicle for its warheads.

In my opinion, a more immediate concern should be the current threat posed by North Korea’s chemical weapons arsenal. It is estimated that North Korea currently has a stockpile of around 2,500 to 5,000 tons of different weaponized chemical agents, which can be delivered via aircraft, artillery shells, and ballistic missiles.

38 North:

“Chemical agents currently reported to be in the KPA inventory include, but are not necessarily limited to: adamsite (DM), chloroacetophenone (CN), chlorobenzyliidene malononitrile (CS), chlorine (CL), cyanogen chloride (CK), hydrogen cyanide (AC), mustard-family (H, HD or HL), phosgene (CG and CX), sarin (GB), soman (GD), tabun (GA) and V-agents (VM and VX).[5] It is important to note that, according to KPA defectors, the DPRK produces a total of 20 different chemical agents for use in weapons. It is believed that the KPA has concentrated upon sulfur mustard, chlorine, phosgene, sarin and the V-agents.”

I would not doubt that such weapons would be used by the North on populated centers inside South Korea and Japan and U.S. military installations in the region.

South Korea has been stepping up its rhetoric also, warning North Korea that any strike against South Korea or U.S. Forces would have dire consequences.

The Korea Herald: 

“South Korea’s military warned Thursday that North Korea will pay a harsh price for an attack on the South or its ally the United States.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff issued the strongly worded message in response to the North’s continued war rhetoric, including a threat to fire ballistic missiles toward Guam.

Should the North ignore the warning and provoke, it will face “the allies’ strong and resolute retaliation,” Army Col. Roh Jae-cheon, the JCS spokesman, said in a statement.”

May Updates On North Korea 5-27-17

May 25, 2017. Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces in South Korea defended the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system, citing the latest missile tests conducted by North Korea.

The deployment of THAAD has been met by local opposition which claim that the system may be seen as a threat by China. They have voiced concern that China may scale back trade with South Korea due to the deployment. China would rather not have such an advanced system so close to Beijing. China’s capital is a little over 500 miles away from the THAAD installation. China’s concern is mostly over the advanced radar and electronic espionage systems which typically accompany the THAAD system.

May 24, 2017. Russian President Vladimir Putin has voiced his willingness to mediate talks between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States. This would not be well received by the American Mainstream Media as they are still pushing their “Russiaphobia” headlines. They have not given up their “Russians hacked the election” narrative, despite no evidence whatsoever of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia.

May 21, 2017. North Korea successfully tests the Pukguksong-2 missile which is estimated to have a striking range of 1,200 miles. Kim Jong-un has approved this missile system for mass production and deployment, further raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

May 23, 2017. An apparent Drone (unmanned aerial vehicle) was spotted flying out of North Korea over the demilitarized zone that separates the two Korea’s.

North Korea – New Developments

Here’s some of the latest news on North Korea that the mainstream media will completely ignore. At least for a few days anyway 🙂

In a move to expand on the ground human intelligence, US Elite military intelligence group is being moved to  South Korea this coming October.

North Korea is expanding its missile launch sites in latest satellite images. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, they are going to continue to defy the international community.

Trump sends former officials to meet with Senior North Korean Diplomat in Europe. This is a good step, I find it interesting that there will be no Chinese officials at this meeting.

North Korea attempting to manipulate South Korean Elections. Now here is an actual legitimate case of foreign election manipulation. lol

Seoul denies NIS, CIA targeted North’s leader I am on the fence with this story lol, I mean the CIA did try to poison Castro, right?

 

 

China is Bitch Slapping North Korea

It appears that President Trump’s talks with President Xi of China have really paid off. China seems to be taking a much stronger stance on North Korea and it has Lil Kim in Pyongyang fuming.

Beijing is having doubts about renewing its 56 year mutual assistance treaty, while North Korea’s state-run news agency “Korean Central News Agency” is running statements saying that “China is disloyal” and says that China has crossed the “red line”.

The statements aired were disguised as comments by a private citizen of North Korea. They also included:

“will never beg for the maintenance of friendship with China, risking its nuclear program which is as precious as its own life, no matter how valuable the friendship is” Kim Chol

China has been intensifying its efforts to rein in North Korea by pushing for new sanctions while simultaneously attempting to set the stage for diplomatic talks.

In an effort to cut down on any money and illegal smuggling into North Korea, China has stepped up customs inspections of all cargo trucks entering and leaving North Korea. Typically only a small number of these trucks are inspected, going forward ALL cargo trucks will be inspected by customs agents.

Word is that the sentiment inside the Chinese government is pushing towards ending the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty.

As I had previously predicted, President Donald Trump’s gamble on President Xi is absolutely paying off.

N.K. hackers freely accessed S.K. military networks for 20 days

Original Article From: Donga.com

The South Korean military authority has decided to discipline 26 people involved in the case that presumably North Korean hackers penetrated South Korea’s military intranet and Intranet (military network) and robbed en masse classified military information, including materials containing the South Korea-U.S. allied forces’ wartime operation plans, for the first time in military history in September last year.

The military prosecution announced on Tuesday the results of investigation that they conducted by forming a task force in December last year. According to the results, the 26 people to be disciplined include six field officer and officer-level officers from the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Special Warfare Command that provided a cause for the leaks of military intelligence. It is suspected that they failed to follow the security regulations when preparing documents on classified military information. Those against whom disciplinary actions are sought included Byun Jae-seon, commander of the Military Cyber Command, and head of the Defense Integrated Data Center, who allegedly provided “interface” that allowed the hackers to spared malign codes into even the defense network by intermixing the Internet and the defense network.

A Message For Tucker Carlson From A Pissed Off Puerto Rican 

I don’t usually come on here to vent.. but today I will.
I watched an interview that Tucker Carlson had with the governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rossello. I usually enjoy Mr. Carlson’s interviews but his interview with Governor Rossello hit a sour note with me. To be specific, that Mr. Carlson referred to Puerto Rico as a Third World Country.

The term “Third World” arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with NATO. How does that term apply to Puerto Rico.. a US colonial territory?
When asking for the reason why Puerto Ricans wanted statehood, He wanted to know what Puerto Rico had to offer the US. Was Idaho’s contribution the potato..? Did Hawaii promise better pineapples.? Other than sand: what was Nevada’s big contribution..? How about Rhode Island.?
I am not saying anything bad about these states.. These states have contributed the same thing that Puerto Rico has contributed for a hundred years.

 

Shortly after the act of Congress granted us citizenship, close to 20,000 Puerto Ricans were drafted to the military during World War I. As a matter of fact, Puerto Rican soldiers have fought in every major U.S. military conflict during the past century.
Are there men and women, from any other 3rd world countries, (Libya, Afghanistan, Brazil, China) that have been drafted into the US military.?
Puerto Rican veterans are very proud of their past military performance; 65,000 Puerto Ricans served in the United States armed forces during the Second World War; 61,000 during the Korean War. More than 3,000 were wounded in Korea; 48,000 [fought] in the Vietnam War, out of which 342 died in action and 3,000 were wounded. Four were awarded the Medal of Honor.
I, along with many of my family members, have proudly served in the US military.. as far as I can trace; back to WWII.. but if I were living in Puerto Rico.. I wouldn’t even have the right to vote for the president who would send me to war. We have earned that right.
Mr. Carlson, you should take back your 3rd world references when commenting about Puerto Rico and it’s American citizens.
God bless America and God bless Puerto Rico.

Diplomats Around The Globe Consider Oil Embargo and Sanctions Against North Korea

As North Korea continues to provoke the United States and its allies and ignores warnings from China, diplomats are looking at placing an oil embargo on North Korea.

The Japan Times is reporting:

Japan, South Korea and the United States will accelerate efforts to press China to mull possible new sanctions, including an oil ban, if North Korea carries out another nuclear test or launches a long-range ballistic missile, several diplomats have said.

In addition to an oil embargo for the first time, other options in a new U.N. Security Council sanctions resolution could include measures such as globally banning the North’s national airline, Air Koryo, prohibiting North Korean workers from working abroad, completely restricting its coal exports and ending seafood exports.

Currently, coal export restrictions are in place. Beijing, as the largest importer, recently agreed to the further suspension of coal transfers with its neighbor.

In my opinion, this would be a very effective move against Kim Jong-un’s tyrannical regime.

The Trump administration along with the international community are pushing for China to clamp down even harder on North Korea as they account for 90 percent of Pyongyang’s trade.

The article by The Japan Times article also stated:

Beijing, which is North Korea’s primary economic and diplomatic benefactor, remains crucial to reining in the North’s nuclear ambitions although criticism has been directed at China for not fully implementing the measures that are in place.

“China is the key to making the sanctions effective,” one of the diplomats explained, questioning how serious China will be in backing such far-reaching sanctions measures.

The diplomat also said new sanctions will be imposed only if a sixth nuclear test or a successful intercontinental ballistic missile launch occurs. The latest launch, which apparently failed, took place Saturday morning.

What China needs to understand is that if they do not help the U.S. and its allies contain North Korea, they run the chance of Japan and South Korea fully deploying their own missile defense systems. Japan is currently looking at purchasing up to 6 THAAD anti missile platforms to defend the whole of Japan from the threat of North Korea. 

South Korea is currently protected by Patriot Missile Defense systems and Aegis missile cruisers which do have anti-missile capabilities. A THAAD missile defense platform is currently deployed in South Korea and is being calibrated and tested. Estimates are that the missile defense shield will be operational by May 9, 2017.

China has voiced opposition to the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system and its supporting state of the art next generation radar system in South Korea. They do not like the fact that this system is little over 500 miles away from Beijing.

Russia has joined China in opposing the deployment of THAAD on the Korean Peninsula, however both countries are downplaying the serious threat that is posed by a nuclear armed North Korea. The threat to Americas allies and American Forces in the region is very real. By 2020 North Korea will have the technical capabilities to strike the United States mainland.

I have been thoroughly covering the North Korean crisis, check out my other posts to learn more about whats going on. Many of these stories are not covered by the American Press.

U.S. and China at odds over failed North Korean Missile Test

Saturday morning North Korea launched another failed missile tests just days after the 85th anniversary of the founding of the North Korean Army. This happened less than 24 hours after Beijing urged North Korea to stop escalating tensions.

U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement:

“North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Pukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) in the northeastern direction at around 5:30 a.m today,”

“It is estimated to have failed.”

Additional provocations are expected by allied forces in South Korea.

North Korea is ignoring advice from China. China Warns North Korea Not to ‘Cross Point of No Return’ with Nuclear Test

The missiles being tested have the capability of carrying a nuclear payload. This latest failed test shows that North Korea is still having reliability issues with its latest weapons platform.

The THAAD Missile Defense system is currently being set up and deployed and should be operational in a few days.

President Donald Trump tweeted out a response to North Korea’s missile test:

President Trump is playing up to China’s ego, putting them on notice that he expects them to take some action against North Korea’s latest provocation.

If China does nothing in the face of North Korea’s defiance, they will appear weak in the eyes of the international community.

Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson had this to say:

The Chinese government has stressed that no one country can solve the North Korean problem.

Conservative Journalist Jack Posobiec tweeted out:

https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/858074085770899456

Lets just hope Lil Kim doesn’t force President Trump’s hand.

At the end of the day, when it comes to science you learn more from failures than you do from success. When it comes to rockets and missiles, every failure teaches North Korean scientists and engineers what NOT to do.

“We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never made a mistake never made a discovery” ― Samuel Smiles, The Lives Of George And Robert Stephenson

 

U.S. Missile Defense Shield Deployed To South Korea As Regional Tensions Rise: A Detailed Analysis

As tensions continue to rise on the Korean Peninsula, North Korea has demonstrated its willingness to strike South Korea and Japan with Nuclear Weapons.

To protect our allies and our forces currently safeguarding South Korea, the Pentagon has deployed the THAAD Missile Defense System.

Take a look at this bad boy

The truth is that this is just one component of the actual missile defense capability employed in South Korea. The military is using a sophisticated defense grid made up of special radar, the THAAD missile system, the Patriot missile system, along with Aegis Cruisers and airborne radar and electronic espionage aircraft.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they started flying one of those nifty 747 mounted anti-missile/ICBM laser cannon over Seoul soon. (Yes those exist)

The Mainstream Media has gone out of its way to over hype the range and capability of North Korean missiles. At current development projections the North Koreans wouldn’t be reading to TEST fire a missile that would reach the United States until 2020.

The current arsenal employed by North Korea, is certainly dangerous in the short to medium range. They can be outfitted with chemical and biological warheads. I’m not so sure that North Korea has the technical capability to produce warheads for short or medium range missiles. They do however have the capability to produce warheads for their long-range missiles although the reliability of the long range arsenal is questionable.

What this means is that the North Korean missiles pose a direct threat to Seoul, one of the most populated cities in the world, and to the American troops defending South Korea. THAAD deployment along side existing missile defense capabilities in the Korean theater was a smart move.

The Japanese Navy has joined the American Armada and is backing the United States actions in the region.

You’d think that South Koreans would be happy that we are deploying the most advanced missile defense system in the world to defend them against the North, however that is not the case.

“About 8,000 police officers were mobilized, and the main road leading up to the site in the country’s southeast was blocked earlier Wednesday, Yonhap reported. About 200 residents and protesters rallied against THAAD in front of a local community center, with some hurling plastic water bottles.” – Protests as U.S. anti-missile system aimed at N. Korea installed

Many of the protesters claim that the THAAD system will cause tensions between South Korea and China, and that it will most likely provoke North Korea into more extreme shows of force. Chinese intelligence is currently on the ground in South Korea fanning the flames of these protests. THAAD and its related radar systems have the capability of tracking Chinese military movements. China has already begun its economic warfare against South Korea’s tourist industry in response to the deployment.

China would rather not have the most advanced radar and missile defense system of the United States parked 591 miles from Beijing.

Russia has also expressed concerns over the deployment of THAAD as they share a border with North Korea. The Russians are deploying troops to their border with North Korea to try to prevent a refugee wave in the event that war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula.

China has agreed to help the United States deal with the North Koreans and have taken serious steps to put pressure on Kim Jong-un to stop its policy of threatening its neighbors with chemical and nuclear weapons.


 

In my opinion, I believe that Kim Jong-un will do everything and anything to hold on to power. He is capable of launching both nuclear and chemical attacks on South Korea and American Forces in the region and is crazy enough to launch a preemptive strike on Seoul if he feels an American invasion is imminent.

This situation could possibly spin out of control, which is why ramping up Missile Defense in South Korea is both a smart move, and a necessary one.

In coming weeks we will see how effective China will be in helping the United States find a peaceful resolution to the situation on the Korean Peninsula. China has stated recently that it is willing to strike North Korea on its own if they threaten China’s economic bottom line.

Koreas On A Collision Course

Originally Published by Park Sang-seek

Kim Jong-un’s father, Kim Jong-il, once said, “I would destroy the world or take the world with me before accepting defeat on the battlefield.”
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently warned that South and North Korea are on a collision course. At their first meeting Donald Trump and Xi Jinping failed to reach any new agreement on the North Korean nuclear issue. Soon after Trump ordered a US Navy strike group o the Western Pacific, to counter North Korea’s escalating military threat. All indications are that South Korea is facing the calm before the storm. The question is, what should Seoul do at this crucial moment? The answer: it must locate the origin of this storm.

Since the International Atomic Energy Agency discovered in 1992 that North Korea had begun to produce nuclear bombs, South Korea and the US have tried to stop North Korea’s nuclear programme, through US-North Korea bilateral negotiations (1993-1994) and the six-party talks (2003-2008). But both efforts failed to denuclearise North Korea.
