    North Korea NOW

    NORTH KOREA SURROUNDED By 150,000 Chinese Troops & U.S. Warships! - Is War Imminent?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mChBybRarn8


    Josh Sigurdson breaks down the stunning development in North Korea as the U.S. sends a fleet of warships to the Korean Peninsula ready to attack at any moment. All the while, China has sent 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in order to take North Korean refugees in the case of an imminent attack by the United States.
    While there have been U.S. fighter jets in the region for several months, this is a whole new ballpark. The commander of American forces in the pacific ordered an aircraft carrier and several other warships towards the Korean Peninsula as a show of strength by the Trump administration according to the New York Times.
    This is just days after North Korea tested another intermediate-range missile.
    This could get ugly fast considering the North Koreans' threats towards the US as they ready their missiles. Though it's worth pointing out that they don't have much fighting ability outside their readied weapons. They can barely afford to fuel fighter jets.

    In a disturbing twist, Kim Jong Un broadcast a possible coded message of an imminent attack on the state-run airwaves. Many believe the message was to North Korean sleeper cells. The broadcast happened at 12am, addressed to "members of the remote education university" saying things like "Number 69 on page 602, number 79 on page 133, number 18 on page 216."
    North Korea sent out a similar message on March 24 just days before Kim Jong Un fired a missile into the Sea of Japan.
    While most are disturbed just by the day to day life in North Korea and the real isolationism within the country, if war kicks off, how exactly will bombing the country help the people? The real victims of the regime.
    Shouldn't the target be deprogramming those within North Korea who think their leader is god? Showing them the beauty of freedom? This may just end in death and destruction. At least for North Koreans.
    Of course the North Korean government needs to be stopped, among many others, but will bombing and massive potential nuclear clashes help? Or just lead to decades of further nation building?
    As the military industrial complex continues to grow, we live in dangerous times and will continue to cover these issues as they unfold. We should not be the policemen of the world. Individuals however should learn to be individuals instead of collectives and value true freedom vs force of state.





    Source: Military Strike on North Korea Coming Soon


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vtiCyhV_JA


    Navy vet Jack Posobiec says his source - who accurately predicted the Syria strike - told him the Trump administration is about to launch an attack on North Korea.

    We also discuss Syria and ask if the Trump administration has been taken over by neo-cons.




    US Prepares for WAR on Two Fronts

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o40AQPfQsE


    President tells his armed forces to prepare for an attack as they approach North Korea, and all the while the US prepares for war with North Korea Secretary of State Tillerson gives Russian an ultimatum. Doesn't look like Russia takes to lightly at being threatened as Russia and Iran seem willing to take on the World alone.

    GEOPOLITICS
    China's Xi tells Trump he wants peaceful solution to North Korea

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/04/12/chinas-xi-tells-trump-wants-peaceful-solution-to-north-korea.html

    Chinese President Xi Jinping told President Trump in a phone call Wednesday that Beijing is willing to work with Washington on ending North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, but wants to do so through peaceful means.

    "Had a very good call last night with the President of China concerning the menace of North Korea," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.


    Xi told Trump that China insists on peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of the deployment of the USS Carl Vinson to the area and the conducting of the biggest-ever U.S.-South Korea military drills.

    "China insists on realizing the denuclearization of the peninsula ... and is willing to maintain communication and coordination with the American side over the issue on the peninsula," Xi was quoted as saying by state media.

    The call came after Trump warned in a pair of tweets Tuesday that North Korea “is looking for trouble” and vowed to get Kim Jong-Un’s regime under control with or without China’s help.

    “I explained to the President of China that a trade deal with the U.S. will be far better for them if they solve the North Korean problem!” Trump tweeted.


    He added in a second tweet: “North Korea is looking for trouble. If China decides to help, that would be great. If not, we will solve the problem without them! U.S.A.”

    Trump and other U.S. officials have repeatedly called on China to leverage its status as North Korea's biggest economic partner and source of food and fuel aid to force Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

    China has said that it is in full compliance with sanctions enacted under U.N. Security Council resolutions and in February, suspending imports of coal from North Korea — a key source of foreign currency for Kim.

    However, Beijing also said it will not countenance measures that could bring about a collapse of the regime that could release a flood of refugees across its border, destabilize northeast Asia and result in a U.S.-friendly government taking power in Pyongyang.

    North Korea has drawn U.S. ire recently following a series of ballistic missile tests. There is also fear the country’s nuclear program is progressing.

    Pyongyang said Monday it would “hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences” if there was any further military action after the USS Carl Vinson arrives in the area of the Korean Peninsula.

    Adding to tensions, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that activity appeared to be taking place at a North Korean nuclear test site ahead of the April 15 anniversary of the communist country's founding.

    Given how mentally/emotionally unstable NKorea's head Kim is it would not surprise me if he lobs one off at the US tomorrow. However, I doubt that it will be a successful launch target strike. Japan is sick of NKorea lobbing off missiles in their direction. For years we've heard they would send one off in the direction of Hawaii. I gave up worrying about that years ago given that the US has control over their computer launching system.





    China Warns North Korea Situation Has Hit "Tipping Point", Threatens "Never Before Seen" Measures
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-12/china-threatens-north-korea-never-seen-measures-if-they-dont-de-escalate

    After warnings yesterday, and on the heels of a "very good call" with President Trump, China has escalated its threats to North Korea over its nuclear tests. In another Global Times op-ed, China warns "if the North makes another provocative move this month, the Chinese society will be willing to adopt severe restrictive measures that have never been seen before..."

    “China has a bottom line that it will protect at all costs, that is, the security and stability of northeast China... If the bottom line is touched, China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back. By that time, it is not an issue of discussion whether China acquiesces in the US’ blows, but the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) will launch attacks to DPRK nuclear facilities on its own."

    This, as the editorial puts it, is the "bottom line" for China; should it be crossed China will employ all means available including the military means to strike back," warned the editorial.

    Overnight, Trump and Xi held a call, which Trump said went well...

    CHINA: USA NOT BLUFFING
    HIDDEN SUB THREAT

    http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1041998.shtml

    SNIP
    Presumably Beijing will react strongly to Pyongyang's new nuclear actions. China will not remain indifferent to Pyongyang's aggravating violation of the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution.

    More and more Chinese support the view that the government should enhance sanctions over Pyongyang's nuclear activities. If the North makes another provocative move this month, the Chinese society will be willing to see the UNSC adopt severe restrictive measures that have never been seen before, such as restricting oil imports to the North. Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program is intended for securing the regime, however, it is reaching a tipping point. Pyongyang hopes its gamble will work, but all signs point to the opposite direction.

    The US is making up its mind to stop the North from conducting further nuclear tests, it doesn't plan to co-exist with a nuclear-armed Pyongyang.

    China supports solution of the North Korean nuclear issue under the framework of UNSC and Six-Party Talks. If the US takes unilateral action, it will win little international support. Pyongyang can continue its tough stance, however, for its own security, it should at least halt provocative nuclear and missile activities.

    Pyongyang should avoid making mistakes at this time.

    US ready foŕ preemptive strike if North Corea even tests a nuke

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5HU5RUa5D8&app=desktop8


    US military has their finger on the trigger and ready for even a hint at a nuclear test launch or any other action by North Korea that the US military deems threatening.
    The same hour President Trump seems evasive on journalist question as to whether the president authorized the MOAB bomb to be dropped on Afghanistan.
    China moves the S-300 missile defense system close to North Korean border, but why to protect North Korea or defend themselves.

    US pushing world to brink of nuclear war: North Korea to UN

    April 17, 2017


    On Monday North Korea’s Ambassador to the UN accused the US of pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war

    (VERO BEACH, FLA) During a news conference from the United Nations headquarters in New York, North Korea’s Ambassador Kim In-Ryong claimed the U.S. has pushed the world to the “brink of war”

       “The United States introducing in South Korea, the Korean peninsula, the worlds biggest hot spot, the huge nuclear strategic asset, seriously threatening the peace and security of the peninsula, and pushing the situation there to brink of war [sic],” Ambassador Kim In-Ryong said. "It has been created dangerous situation in which the thermonuclear war may break out at any moment on the peninsula and pose a serious threat to the world's peace and security, to say nothing of those of northeast Asia.”

    A senior North Korean official told the BBC Monday that Pyongyang will continue to test missiles as frequently as ‘weekly’ and that if the US interferes ‘all out war’ could result.

    "We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis," Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC's John Sudworth. “An all out war will result if the US is reckless enough to use military means.”

    These comments follow US Vice-President Mike Pence statement that America’s "era of strategic patience" with North Korea was over, and Pyongyang would do well not to “test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.”

    Kim has been an ongoing threat for years. He even had one of his generals executed for falling asleep in a meeting. He is unpredictable and dangerous. One way I see this being resolved is perhaps for all three (China, Russia and the US) work toether on this.

    NORTH KOREA SURROUNDED BY U.S., RUSSIA & CHINA! - Tensions Rise As Nuclear Missiles Are Readied

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLpSfL8dC48


    Josh Sigurdson reports on the most recent developments in the disturbing face off between North Korea, the United States, China, Russia & Japan as nuclear tensions rise.
    Following the announcement of 150,000 Chinese troops on the North Korean border to potentially take in refugees in the case of nuclear war, and the USS Carl Vinson fleet of ships moving into the Korean Peninsula, new reports have come out of the Associated Press and the Japanese government claiming China and Russia have dispatched intelligence gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier through the Korean peninsula.
    There are also reports of other U.S. aircraft carriers entering the peninsula.
    And that's not the only development concerning many that there is a possible nuclear war in the playbook, there have been reports of air surveillance of the USS Carl Vinson as well.

    There has been video released on social media by locals in Vladivostok, Russia, just eight miles from the North Korean border showing a huge military convoy of eight surface to air missiles heading to the area. While there is a navy fleet based in Vladivostok as our research has clarified, these missiles are primarily used for Russian air defense, though the context of its use are not confirmed as Russia has not acknowledged this military move. As the footage shows, Chinese military assets are also being moved to the North Korean border.

    Alongside threats from Japan, China has made it clear that they will attack North Korea if they continue to test missiles around their border. Following this threat, North Korea went and tested missiles anyways along the border, but allegedly failing during liftoff.
    Vice President Mike Pence made a statement in South Korea saying, "North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region."
    Pence also claimed the era of strategic patience is over.

    North Korea's Vice foreign minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC,
    "We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis" He added that, "an all out war would result if the US was reckless enough to use military means."

    China has also put sanctions on North Korean coal and has stopped flights to North Korea. Kim Jong Un recently released a coded message on state-run airwaves that seemed to be a message to North Korean sleeper cells similar to a coded message in March preceding a missile launch into the Sea of Japan.

    President Trump has said that nothing is off the table. He also said, "They should behave themselves."

    Let's be clear that North Korea can barely afford to fuel fighter jets, never mind shoot long range nuclear warheads.

    It's a terrible country and one should feel bad for the citizens who are living in a totalitarian bubble at larger scale than most of the world. The solution isn't more growth of the globalist military industrial complex and bombing the victims (the citizens) to smithereens.
    The solution is also not creating more global tensions with countries like Russia and China.

    Yeah.  All it would take is even one missile test from the North Koreans to instigate a nuclear war at this point?  Is THAT what they're saying now?

    All they have to do is make it appear like the North Koreans started it.

    It's a total con job.

    What A War With North Korea Would Probably Look Like

    By Brandon Smith

    Back in 2013 during the last major flare up between the U.S. and North Korea I wrote an extensive analysis on the North Korean wild card and how it could be used by globalists as a catalyst for international economic instability titled ‘Will Globalists Use North Korea To Trigger Catastrophe?’ As I have warned consistently over the years, like Syria, North Korea is a longstanding chaos box; a big red button that the elites can press any time they wish to instigate a chain of greater geopolitical tensions. The question has always been, will they actually use it?

    Well, it appears that under the Trump administration the establishment might go for broke. I have not seen U.S. war rhetoric so intense since the second invasion of Iraq, and all over missile tests which have been standard fare for North Korea for many years. With whispers by Trump aides of a possible 50,000 boots on the ground in Syria, and open discussion of preemptive strikes in North Korea, this time kinetic conflict is highly likely.

    Yes, we have see such military pressures and posturing before, but this time feels different. Why is an aimless quagmire war with massive potential global financial repercussions more likely under Trump? Because Trump ran under a nationalist conservative banner, and he will forever be labeled a nationalist conservative even if his behavior appears to be more globalist in nature. Rhetoric is often more psychologically powerful in the minds of the masses than action. Therefore, EVERYTHING Trump does from now on will also be labeled a product of the “nationalist conservative” ideology; including all of his screw-ups. And, with Trump in office the establishment is perfectly happy to pursue actions once considered taboo, because demonizing conservatives and liberty proponents is one of their primary objectives.

    When the real insanity starts, liberty movement activists will gnash their teeth and scream at the top of their lungs that Trump is “not acting like a conservative,” so how can conservative thinking be blamed by extension? But these people just don’t grasp the thought processes of the human mind. No matter how much we try to separate ourselves from the Trump-train if (or when) he goes full-bore globalist, our efforts will be futile. The mainstream media has spent considerable time and effort making sure that all of us are lumped in with the so-called “alt-right.” Remember, I tried to warn the movement about this long before Trump won the election.

    Currently, there are questions as to whether or not a naval task force is en route to North Korea. I would not trust the latest reports that all units are headed to Australia when Vice President Mike Pence is in Japan yesterday saying “the sword stands ready.” Could this be more posturing or a precursor to a strike scenario? I am reminded of the U.S.S. Maddox which was sent to patrol the waters off of Vietnam, the same destroyer that reported an attack by North Vietnamese torpedo boats which was used as justification for the initiation if the Vietnam War. As it turned out, no such attack actually occurred.

    The presence of a U.S. fleet off North Korea could only be intended to instigate further aggression, not defuse the situation.

    So, if war with North Korea is inevitable given the circumstances, what would such a war look like? Here are some elements I think are most important; elements that make the war unwinnable, if winning is even the purpose…

    North Korean Air Defense

    The North Koreans spent the better part of the last war with the U.S. being heavily battered by air bombardments. They have had plenty of time since then to consider this problem and prepare. Even the most gung-ho American military minds are forced to admit that using only air-based attacks in North Korea is not practical. And where we have been spoiled by steady video streams of laser-guided hell dropped on Iraqi and Afghani targets in the past, don’t expect things to go so easily in North Korea.

    While North Korea is still rife with economic problems (like every other communist and socialist nation), they still have an industrial base and produce many of their own arms. This includes and extensive missile net backed by a maze of radar systems. Their air force is by all accounts obsolete, but as I have mentioned in the past, advanced missile defense is the wave of the future. It’s cheaper and can render expensive enemy air force and naval units impotent.

    North Korea uses an indigenous built surface-to-air missile (SAM) system called the KN-06 which is as capable as some Russian SAM systems. They also field huge numbers of MANPAD (man-portable air defense) units against planes and helicopters attempting to dodge radar defenses at low altitudes. This is layered on top of a vast array of anti-aircraft artillery. And, most of this anti-air apparatus is either mobile or based underground.

    What this means is, a ground invasion is the ONLY way to attack North Korea effectively and make room for air units to strike interior targets.

    Underground Facilities

    The Pentagon estimates at least 6,000 to 8,000 underground military facilities in North Korea. New bases are being discovered all the time. While “bunker buster” bombs can possibly damage these facilities, it is unlikely that they would be completely destroyed or rendered ineffective. There is also an estimated 84 large tunnels through mountains on the southern border which would allow an immediate invasion by North Korean ground forces into South Korea. Only four of these tunnels exits have been found and blocked by South Korea.

    It is important to remember that underground infrastructure has always been the bane of the modern Western military. These facilities will not be taken by air. They will have to be taken the hard way — with ground troops.

    North Korean Infantry


    In 2013 the Department of Defense reported North Korean ground forces at around 950,000. This, of course, does not count their nearly 8 million infantry reserves. They also boast over 200,000 highly trained paramilitary soldiers. North Korea has no means whatsoever to project these forces overseas against the U.S. or anyone else other than South Korea. The only way they can do damage to U.S. forces is if we show up on their doorstep.

    Since a ground invasion is the only way to proceed with what will obviously be “regime change” in North Korea, U.S. forces will be facing an endless mire of mountain warfare worse than Afghanistan with limited air support options. If it comes down to a war of attrition rather than superior technology, victory will be impossible in North Korea.

    Yeah.  All it would take is even one missile test from the North Koreans to instigate a nuclear war at this point?  Is THAT what they're saying now?

    All they have to do is make it appear like the North Koreans started it.

    It's a total con job.  

    False flags, lies, and economic fascism -- that's how you build your empire.  Who's the threat?

    Cheerful No regret Pris. Landing here was smooth, the ride high up in adrenalin, nature beautiful,
    I made some meaningful encounters.
    Despite the crazyness of some humans and the power they have to destroy
    everything in a spit second I am still able to see this place isn't completely soul less. Hope The Karen
