North Korea 'attacks US aircraft carrier and bomber'

… pictures and video showing US aircraft bombarded by a Pukguksong missile have been released by North Korea.

The images were from a state-owned propaganda site, DPRK Today and released hours after US Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers, dispatched from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam flew close to North Korea’s east coast.

With tension continuing to build between North Korea & US, maybe IOC should seriously think about what to do about the up coming Olympics in South Korea.

Cancel, reschedule or move them to alternative location.
last 3 location:
Sochi
Vancouver
Torino

Is Kim Jong-un the world's next Boogeyman - or is Trump ???

Trump’s Recklessness Threatens ‘World War III’

WASHINGTON — Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”

In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts “like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.”

“He concerns me,” Mr. Corker added. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.”

So you had to go so far back you can't even use a photograph and chose someone widely regarded as a heroine and a saint? Thank you for backing up my point. It's time for more women to lead. :130:

Ok. Not sure that I did in fact do that. But....

.

Finally something we can agree on! Though more and more women are leading. As Piers Morgan pointed out when he was setting that racist transgender model straight, the five most powerful people in the UK right now are women. The most powerful leader in Europe is a woman. Things are definitely moving in the right direction.

Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

Two petulant children set to decimate life on this planet as we know it.

North Korea Attack Could Kill 90 per cent of Americans: Report

A North Korean electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack could possibly eliminate 90 percent of the U.S. population, according to a new report.

Peter Vincent Pry, a nuclear strategist formerly with the CIA, told Forbes on Monday an EMP attack would be detrimental to the U.S. by targeting electrical grids.

"The U.S. can sustain a population of 320 million people only because of modern technology," said Pry. "An EMP that blacks-out the electric grid would (decimate) the critical infrastructure necessary to support such a large population."

If an EMP attack did occur, Pry's report, says grocery store food supply would deteriorate within three days, and within a year 90 percent of the American population would perish.

Until this week I've tended not to worry too much about N Korea, assuming that it would all get sorted somehow, and life would go on. But I'm becoming increasingly concerned that what is happening is indeed leading us down the path to WW3, and it's a frightening thought.

The following table of events, which was published in the UK Sun newspaper, really brings home the seriousness of the situation:
The past months have seen a series of alarming events that appear to have brought the two states to the brink of armed conflict:

April 9: A US strike force was sent towards the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula.

April: President Trump ramped up the pressure on China to take action against the secretive state by declaring the US would “solve the problem” alone if it did not step up.

April 14: During parades marking 105 years since the state’s founder Kim Il-sung was born, a devastating arsenal was on show including a KN-08 rocket, thought to be capable of flying more than 7,000 miles – within range of Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC. But experts have since questioned if the weapons were genuine.
Hours before the parade a top general had told North Korean state TV "we’re prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war”.

April 15: North Korea again enraged the US with a missile test but this time it was an embarrassing flop exploding almost immediately.

April 17: US Vice President Mike Pence told Pyongyang the "era of patience is over" as he warned tubby tyrant Kim Jong-un not to test Trump as plans were made to send a missile defence system to South Korea earlier than planned.

April 19: Vice President Mike Pence warned Kim Jong-un the US would "defeat any attack" as he spoke to soldiers aboard a massive aircraft carrier.

April 28: North Korea launched a devastating attack on the US Capitol to spark World War Three in a terrifying propaganda film.

May: Kim Jong-un warned that it would be a "piece of cake" to nuke Japan - warning that those who tried to retaliate and their supports would not be safe

May: The hermit state said that it has the right to “ruthlessly punish” any US citizens after it detained a fourth American at the start of May

May 5: Pyongyang announced it would seek the extradition of anyone involved in what it says was a CIA-backed plot to kill leader Kim Jung-un with a biochemical poison

June: North Korea threatened to nuke Trump's home town of New York after he mocked the missile programme.

July: North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile which analysts say has a range of 6,700 kilometres and brings Alaska within reach. Pyongyang later said it was a “landmark” test of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile. Trump responded with an tweet saying; "Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?".

July 31: It was reported that Donald Trump was ready to order a military strikeagainst a North Korean nuclear weapons facility hidden beneath a mountain range.

August 8: Trump warned North Korea faces “fire and fury” if it threatens the US – as intelligence documents reveal Kim Jong-un has made mini nukes to attach to his new rockets

August 10: North Korean state media said it was planning to launch four rockets towards the US territory of Guam.

August 10: Trump declared North Korea "better get their act together" or they will be in trouble like "few nations have ever been". He also suggested he might not have been tough enough with his previous comments on the rogue state.

August 11: The Sun revealed Britain would play no part in a military strike on the communist state in a move that was slammed as “weak and ill-judged" by ex-Commander of British Forces Afghanistan Colonel Richard Kemp.

August 11: Speaking from his New Jersey golf resort Trump told North Korea it would "truly regret" any action it takes against Guam.

August 12: New satellite images of North Korea bases appear to show the volatile state is overhauling its missile sub fleet.

August 15: North Korea appeared to back down from an imminent strike by saying Kim Jong-un would watch "the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" before deciding whether to fire on Guam.

August 28: It was reported that North Korea had fired a missile towards northern Japan. Residents were called to take immediate shelter underground.

August 29: Officials confirmed the North's missile launch. The "unidentified projectile" hurtled over the country before breaking into pieces, according to South Korea's military.

August 31: The US responded to Kim Jing-un's latest missile outrage with a terrifying show of strength, dropping huge bombs near the North Korean border.

September 3: The West awakes to the news North Korea has detonated a nuclear device in a test. The blast triggered an artificial earthquake six times larger than any previous test.

September 4: James Mattis, the US Defence Secretary, warned of a "massive military response" to any threat from North Korea against the United States or its allies.

September 6: North Korea promised a "redoubling" of its nuclear arsenal in response to threatened sanctions and warned the US faced "catastrophic consequences".

September 10/11: Two Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missiles were test-fired with a range of more than 6,210 miles.

September 15: North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific,responding to new UN sanctions with its furthest-ever missile flight.

September 25: North Korea threatened to attack US warplanes and accused Donald Trump of declaring war.
September 26: North Korea moved jet fighters to the coast to intercept US bombers.

October 1: Trump says US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is “wasting his time”trying to negotiate with “Little Rocket Man” Kim Jong-un.

October 3: North Korea threatened "suicidal" Japan with “nuclear clouds” as it blasted Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s call for the world to pile more pressure on the rogue state.

October 7: Trump issues chilling threat to North Korea, insisting "only one thing will work" when dealing with the rogue state.

October 21: Supersonic US B-1B strategic bombers zoomed over South Korea as part of an air show prompting Kim to warn the Korean peninsula is on the “eve of explosion”

October 23: Trump has put nuclear bombers back on 24-hour alert for the first time since the end of the Cold War.

If war does break out, Canada may come to bitterly regret cutting back so much on its defense spending over the past decades. Because bullies tend not to pick on those who are well able to defend themselves.

I have been following along for a long time and my biggest worry is an EMP blast over the USA. Where are all of those affected Americans going to run to?

The worst weapon that could be used against North Korea would be two B-52 bombers to fly over and dump a million "smart phones". Non-lethal, but far more effective than a nuclear bomb. Have them all pre-programmed to show the life-style and the beauty of the Western world.
Let the country's own people decide for themselves as to how they would choose to live. Just 50 photos of overweight Western men and women, dressed in everyday clothing or laying on the beach, eating from a heaping bowl of rice would cause an uproar.
They don't need to be killed, they just need a window to see the rest of the world, let them figure it out for themselves.
