Panic Buying Hits Japan Ahead Of Possible War: “Nuke Shelters, Air Purifiers, Anti-Radiation Supplies…” by Mac Slavo

As tensions heat up with North Korea and the potential for a nuclear exchange becomes all the more real, residents of Japan are panic buying everything from nuclear shelters to air purifiers in preparation:

Sales of nuclear shelters and radiation-blocking air purifiers have surged in Japan in recent weeks as North Korea has pressed ahead with missile tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions.

A small company that specializes in building nuclear shelters, generally under people’s houses, has received eight orders in April alone compared with six orders during a typical year.

The company, Oribe Seiki Seisakusho, based in Kobe, western Japan, also has sold out of 50 Swiss-made air purifiers, which are said to keep out radiation and poisonous gas, and is trying to get more, said Nobuko Oribe, the company’s director

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War jitters do push the sale of products; except that this time, it really feels that the US and North Korea are on a precipice from which neither country feels it can back down, and the sense of war actually happening here, is eminent.

Tensions With North Korea Rise as Volleyball Game Ends

Tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to soar, with speculation that the US could still attack North Korea at any moment, with the USS Carl Vinson and its carrier strike group expected to arrive in the vicinity in the next few days.

The Carl Vinson has been driving a lot of speculations lately, but South Korean officials saw another reason to be concerned, that the North Korean volleyball games taking place at one of their nuclear sites appear to have come to an end, which they used to speculate that another nuclear test could be imminent.

The intramural volleyball games at Punggye-ri have been the subject of considerable attention, with some speculating that the games were organized to “confuse” the United States, while North Korean state media offered no insight into what the games were all about.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would almost be ready to bet that the military confrontation between the US and North Korea is eminent, and may happen within a matter of days.

I am hoping cooler heads will prevail on this, but I just don't see it right now.

BREAKING: South Korea Takes Charge Of Own Defense Against North Korea.

The leading presidential candidate has stated South Korea will “take charge” of its own defense, as tensions escalate with Kim Jong-Un.

He just pushed the US time-table for attacking North Korea to before the election. He also invited US interference in the elections, if not being a target for a false-flag attack.

North Korea Arrests US Citizen, Threatens To Sink US Aircraft Carrier As Japan Deploys Warships

A third US citizen has been arrested and remains in custody in North Korea, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap. A man, a Korean-American professor in his 50s, identified by the surname Kim, had been in North Korea for a month to discuss relief activities and was detained at Pyongyang International Airport just as he was leaving North Korea, the agency reported.

The man was a former professor at Yanbian University of Science and Technology (YUST), Yonhap said, citing unnamed sources. YUST, a university in neighboring China, has a sister university in Pyongyang. An official at South Korea's National Intelligence Service said it was not aware of the reported arrest. The reason for his arrest is still unclear, and there has been no comment from the US authorities so far. South Korea’s spy agency, the National Intelligence Service, said it “was not aware” of Kim’s arrest, according to Yonhap.

History Lesson awaits Trump if he Attacks North Korea: Analysts

North Korea Warns China Of "Catastrophic Consequences" For Siding With U.S.

Having repeatedly threatened the annihilation of its neighbor to the south, and most recently warning of a "super-mighty preemptive strike" against the US, one day after it emerged that Pyongyang appeared to have resumed activity at its Punggye-ri Nuclear test site, North Korea asked China not to step up anti-North sanctions, warning of "catastrophic consequences" in their bilateral relations.

Pyongyang issued the warning through commentary written by a person named Jong Phil on its official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), which was released Saturday.

As South Korea's Yonhap news agency writes, it's rare for Pyongyang's media to level criticism at Beijing, though the KCNA didn't directly mention China in the commentary titled "Are you good at dancing to the tune of others" and dated Friday. The commentary instead called the nation at issue "a country around the DPRK," using North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Mike Pence: Peaceful Outcome For Korean Peninsula Still Possible

Denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula can still be achieved peacefully because of Washington’s new engagement with China, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday, despite growing fears North Korea could soon conduct a new nuclear test.

South Korea is on heightened alert ahead of another important anniversary in the reclusive North that could be the trigger for a new nuclear test or launch of ballistic missiles, with a large concentration of military hardware massed on both sides of the border.

Tensions have risen sharply in recent months after Pyongyang conducted two nuclear weapons tests last year and carried out a steady stream of ballistic missile tests in defiance of United Nations resolutions and sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Would Vice-President Pence please elaborate on how he sees this happening, with South Korea, Russia, and China at a heightened state of alert due to North Korea's missile tests?!?

Two MSDF destroyers leave for potential drill with USS Carl Vinson

Two Maritime Self-Defense Force destroyers have left Sasebo naval base and are likely to take part in a drill with the U.S. aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, which is steaming toward the Korean Peninsula, Defense Ministry sources said Friday.

The date and location for the exercise have not been set yet, but the destroyers are likely to join the Carl Vinson strike group at some point.

Trump’s Flub Sparks Anger on Korean Peninsula, But Not Where You’d Expect

Russia denies it is moving troops close to North Korea

Russian authorities are denying reports that they are moving troops to the border with North Korea over growing tensions in the Korean peninsula.

The Interfax news agency on Friday quoted Alexander Gordeyev, spokesman for the Far Eastern Military district, as saying that the movement of heavy weaponry, caught on film and widely distributed on social media, is part of "absolutely scheduled maneuvers of combat readiness." Gordeyev said the military hardware was on its way back from drills elsewhere and denied any connection to the tensions around North Korea's nuclear program.

Gas stations in North Korea's main city restrict services, speculation that China is reducing supply

Drivers in Pyongyang are scrambling to fill up their tanks as gas stations begin limiting services or even closing amid concerns of a spreading shortage.

A sign outside one station in the North Korean capital said Friday that sales were being restricted to diplomats or vehicles used by international organizations, while others were closed or turning away local residents. Lines at other stations were much longer than usual and prices appeared to be rising significantly.

The cause of the restrictions or how long they might last were not immediately known.

US fighter jet from 'North Korea armada' sent CRASHING into the sea

A US fighter jet, which was involved in a show of force against North Korea, has crashed into the sea.

The F-18 crashed while attempting to land on an aircraft carrier in the Celebres Sea, near the Phillipines.

The sole pilot survived by ejecting and landing in the sea, before being rescued by a helicopter crew. He is not seriously injured.

A US military spokesman said: "A pilot safely ejected and was quickly recovered by a helicopter assigned to HSC-4 aboard USS Carl Vinson while conducting routine flight operations during a transit in the Celebes Sea.

"The incident occurred as the F/A-18E assigned to Carrier Air Wing 2 was on final approach to USS Carl Vinson. The incident is currently under investigation.

"The pilot is being assessed by the medical team on board USS Carl Vinson and there are no apparent injuries at this time."

Satellite Images Suggest North Korea May Have Resumed Nuclear Test Preparations

Satellite images of the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site from April 19 indicate that North Korea may have resumed preparations for a possible imminent nuclear test.

According to 38 North, a North Korea analysis program at the Johns Hopkins University, probable trailers have been spotted near the North Portal, the tunnel that North Korea appears to have been preparing for a nuclear test. While no recent dumping is observed, there are at least five mining carts along the tracks leading to the spoil pile and one probable small equipment trailer adjacent to the support building. A net canopy remains in place, presumably concealing equipment, and the pumping of water out of the tunnel to maintain an environment optimal for instrumentation and stemming seems to have ceased.

Trump sparks confusion, danger of war in Korea tinderbox

Donald Trump’s latest moves toward North Korea are “dangerous” and sow confusion in a tense geopolitical scenario, says veteran Korea analyst Daniel C Sneider.

Trump’s recent declaration that he ordered a US carrier strike group to race toward Korea when there was no such force in the vicinity undercuts American credibility and increases the possibility of a misstep, said Sneider, associate director of research for Stanford University’s Walter H Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center.

“War is always possible,” said Sneider, a former Asia correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor. “What Trump is doing is dangerous if it leads to miscalculation by the North Koreans, and it’s dangerous if the US actually acts on this vague threat of doing something, presumably with the use of force.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please.

There is another way of resolving this issue. That would be to get a conference going between the US, North and South Korea, offering South Korea a true peace treaty with which to replace the existing armistice, and the quid pro quo of such an agreement being that in exchange for the peace deal, North Korea stops its nuclear weapons development program.

Of course, THAT...would be logical.

North Korea Ready for 'All-Out War' if US Starts it - Embassy in Russia

North Korea is ready for an all-out war if the United States starts it, the country's Embassy in Russia said.

"If they [the US] commit a reckless provocation, the Korean Revolutionary Forces will deal a devastating blow and respond with an all-out war to an all-out war, respond to a nuclear war with a nuclear strike," an attache of the North Korean Embassy Moscow said.

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have risen in the wake of Pyongyang's nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches conducted in violation of the UN Security Council's resolutions.

North Korea reportedly carried out the most recent missile test early on Sunday. However, the launch was unsuccessful, according to South Korean defense officials. The North Korean Foreign Ministry said that the alleged missile launch had not been announced officially, though it's Pyongyang's "sovereign right" to conduct such tests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the US military is playing "picador" with North Korea. And the following isn't helping de-escalate tensions either. As reported in the English version of sputniknews.com this morning;

South Korea on heightened alert as North readies for army anniversary

South Korea said on Friday it was on heightened alert ahead of another important anniversary in North Korea, with a large concentration of military hardware amassed on both sides of the border amid concerns about a new nuclear test by Pyongyang.

North Korea said late on Friday the state of affairs on the Korean peninsula was "extremely perilous" because of "madcap American nuclear war manoeuvres aimed at trampling on our sovereignty and right to survival."

U.S. officials said there was a higher-than-usual level of activity by Chinese bombers, signalling a possible heightened state of readiness by reclusive North Korea's sole major ally, although the officials played down concern and left open a range of possible reasons. Beijing denied its aircraft were on an increased level of alert.

In Russia, the RIA news agency said a Kremlin spokesman declined to comment on media reports Russia was moving military hardware and troops towards the border with North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The sense I have is that US military action against North Korea is eminent.

We are just two and a half weeks away from the 9 May elections in South Korea, and the US military sees its window of opportunity for a military strike against North Korea as narrowing greatly, if the candidate who wins the South Korean election is a proponent of the "sunshine policy", which advocates engagement and trade with North Korea.

After that, the only US military option is a massive false flag, and I am quite certain that those scenarios have already been planned for, and signed off on, by President Trump.

U.S. sends nuclear sniffer plane to Korea: source

The U.S. Air Force dispatched a nuclear sniffer aircraft Thursday to the east of the Korean Peninsula amid the possibility of North Korea's imminent nuclear test, a government source said.

"The WC-135 Constant Phoenix, a special-purpose U.S. plane, made an emergency sortie today over the East Sea," the source said, requesting anonymity.

Its mission is to collect samples from the atmosphere in order to detect and identity a nuclear explosion.

North Korean Submarine Missile Program Advances

North Korea is making rapid progress on developing submarine-launched ballistic missiles and missile-firing submarines, according to a report by a United Nations panel of experts.

"Rapid technological developments have taken place over a short period, resulting in significant progress towards an operational submarine-launched ballistic missile system," the eight-member U.N. panel of experts stated.

The report provides new details on Pyongyang's development of a submarine-launched missile called the KN-11.

"The shift from liquid- to a solid-fuel engine for the KN-11 is a major technological development, affording greater stability, quicker preparation and longer fuel storage," the report states.

The report provided photographs of the Gorae-class submarine used to launch the missile.

China Escalates Pressure On North Korea: Crude Oil Supply Halt On The Table

While US and North Korean officials have traded verbal missiles in the past few days, China has been noticably quiet. However, that just changed as a prominent Chinese expert told The Nikkei that China likely will halt crude oil exports to North Korea should Pyongyang conduct its sixth nuclear test, signaling a tougher attitude by Beijing toward its rogue neighbor.

North Korea relies almost entirely on China for oil. The Asian giant shipped about 500,000 tons of crude to the North each year until 2013, according to the Chinese customs agency. Bilateral ties cooled that year after Pyongyang carried out its third nuclear test, and exports officially have remained at zero since 2014. But China is believed to still provide crude to North Korea off the books. A complete freeze would impact the North Korean economy.

Putin sends troops to Russia's border with North Korea after China also sends soldiers to its boundary over fears Trump will attack Kim Jong-un, sparking a tidal wave of refugees

Vladimir Putin is sending troops and equipment to Russia's border with North Korea over fears the US is preparing to attack Kim Jong-un.

The Russian President fears there will be a huge exodus of North Korean refugees if his American counterpart, Donald Trump, launches military action against Pyongyang.

It comes days after it emerged that China is also sending 150,000 soldiers to its southern frontier to cope with the tidal wave of North Koreans Beijing fears would flee across the border if war breaks out.

This morning, footage emerged appearing to show how Putin is reinforcing his 11-mile border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment.

Why We Really Don’t Know What the World is Like

If you lived in North Korea, you might think your government had attacked a U.S. aircraft carrier which was approaching the country. You would probably think North Korea had the capabilities to hold their own against the U.S. including “super mighty” preemptive nuclear strikes which could hit mainland USA.

But we live in America, so we believe that North Korea is a backward communist country where the people are oppressed by their government and starving in the streets. Their leader is an insane dictator who talks a big game while the country sits on the brink of collapse.

And this might be close to the truth. We don’t really know though because all of our information about North Korea is imparted to us from the media and our corrupt government which controls them. In that sense, what we know about the world is not so different from what North Koreans know about the world. It is really just a matter of degree.

“Our deployment has been extended 30 days to provide a persistent presence in the waters off the Korean Peninsula,” Rear Adm.

North Korea Is a Large Opium Producer Just Like Afghanistan — But That’s None of Your Business

Prior to the U.S. invasion and occupation that sent production and cultivation skyrocketing 35-fold in just the first 13 years, the Taliban had successfully decimated the opium poppy crop in Afghanistan.

Nearly 16 years later, Afghanistan’s lucrative drug trafficking business is still roaring along unhindered, and — with U.S. troops literally guarding the occupied nation’s 90-percent share of the world’s opium supply — potential competitors rightly seemed scarce.

That is, until North Korea just said ‘no’ to the Drug War.

“In its early stage, the Kim Jong-un regime declared a war against drugs, getting rid of poppy fields,” Kang Cheol-hwan, president of the defector organization, North Korea Strategy Center, told Yonhap News Agency last month. “But now they are cultivating them again.”

Trump Considering “Kinetic Military Action” On North Korea Including “Sudden Strike”

Following Sunday’s failed medium-range missile test by Kim Jong-Un, President Donald Trump has been evaluating his response options and according to Bloomberg, which cited a “person familiar with his thinking”, is willing to consider ordering “kinetic” military action, including a sudden strike, to “counteract North Korea’s destabilizing actions in the region”.

Aircraft Carrier Wasn’t Sailing to Deter North Korea, as U.S. Suggested

As worries deepened last week about whether North Korea would conduct a missile test, the White House declared that ordering an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan would send a powerful deterrent signal and give President Trump more options in responding to the North’s provocative behavior.

The problem was, the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the four other warships in its strike force were at that very moment sailing in the opposite direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula.

US military considers shooting down North Korea missile tests, sources say

The US military is considering shooting down North Korean missile tests as a show of strength to Pyongyang, two sources briefed on the planning have told the Guardian.

Amid heightened tensions over North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, the Pentagon is looking for ways short of war to pressure the country into denuclearization, particularly if Pyongyang goes forward with a sixth nuclear test.

The defense secretary, James Mattis, has briefed Congress on the option, but the military has not yet decided to intercept a test missile.

One US official said the prospective shoot-down strategy would be aimed at occurring after a nuclear test, with the objective being to signal Pyongyang that the US can impose military consequences for a step Donald Trump has described as “unacceptable”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that this article is not sourced. And in my world, if something is not sourced, or attributable to someone, it cannot operate in the sphere of true, honest reporting.

In the 64 years since the war ended, the US has done everything in its power to punish, humiliate and inflict pain on the Communist country. Washington has subjected the DPRK to starvation, prevented its government from accessing foreign capital and markets, strangled its economy with crippling economic sanctions, and installed lethal missile systems and military bases on their doorstep.

Negotiations aren’t possible because Washington refuses to sit down with a country which it sees as its inferior. Instead, the US has strong-armed China to do its bidding by using their diplomats as interlocutors who are expected to convey Washington’s ultimatums as threateningly as possible. The hope, of course, is that Pyongyang will cave in to Uncle Sam’s bullying and do what they are told.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

it is entirely correct that North Korea has developed its nuclear weapons program as a deterrent to a potential pre-emptive US strike against it.

I seriously doubt that North Korea would ever fire the first volley at either South Korea, or American assets nearby; but I do think that if the US government and military want this war, and want it quickly, they will create some kind of "false flag" event, and blame it on North Korea.

Right now, the US government is working against a "hard deadline" of 9 May, which is when the next South Korean election will be held, and if the candidate who wins favors the "sunshine policy" toward North Korea (social/economic engagement, no military hostility against it), President Trump will have "lost the window" for a strike against North Korea for some time.

Of course, I would be reasonably certain that the American Deep State is lining the pockets of candidates who have a more "martial" approach to the "problem" of North Korea; but if that doesn't work, the US government may well be thinking about creating that above-referenced false flag.

What Would Korean War II Look Like?

The US could literally blow North Korea off the map using tactical nuclear weapons based in Japan, South Korea and at sea with the 7th Fleet. Or delivered by B-52 and B-1 bombers and cruise missiles. But this would cause clouds of lethal radiation and radioactive dust to blanket Japan, South Korea and heavily industrialized northeast China, including the capital, Beijing.

China would be expected to threaten retaliation against the United States, Japan and South Korea to deter a nuclear war in next door Korea. At the same time, if heavily attacked, a fight-to-the-end North Korea may fire off a number of nuclear-armed medium-range missiles at Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa and South Korea. These missiles are hidden in caves in the mountains on wheeled transporters and hard to identify and knock out.

This is a huge risk. Such a nuclear exchange would expose about a third of the world’s economy to nuclear contamination, not to mention spreading nuclear winter around the globe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: bellicose hubris, and subsequent threats, will not work here.

And the price of such a war on the Korean Peninsula, in blood, money, and nuclear contamination, will be both unimaginable...and irreversible.

What needs to happen, is for China to get North Korea back on board with a summit to hammer out a true peace deal to replace the armistice, with the quid pro quo being no US invasion of North Korea, and North Korea ending its nuclear weapons program in return.

Such a plan is simple, elegant, and logical, and precludes the need for any military action against North Korea.

You're welcome, Mr. President!! :-)

Why The Donald Should Cool It On North Korea – The Fat Boy Can’t Even Deliver His ‘Little Boy’

The realized truth of modern history is crystal clear. Washington had no business intervening in a quarrel between two no-count wanna be dictators (Syngman Rhee and Kim il Sung) on the Korean peninsula in June 1950, and surely has no business still stationing 29,000 American soldiers there 67 years latter.

Yet owing to the institutionalized albatross of that mis-vectored history, the world is now much closer to the brink of nuclear war than at any time since the dark days of the early cold war. And the Donald has become just the latest political tourist in the Oval Office to succumb to the Deep State’s false, self-serving narrative about why the American imperium remains decamped on the 38th parallel.

Japan May Consider Deploying Troops in Case of DPRK Missile Fall in Its Waters

Japanese government is reportedly considering the possibility of deploying the Self-Defense Forces in case of a fall of a North Korean missile in the country's territorial waters.

For the first time the Japanese government is considering the possibility of deploying the Self-Defense Forces in case of a fall of a North Korean missile in the country's territorial waters, local media reported on Tuesday.
The laws adopted on March 29, 2016, divided security threats into three categories: the possibility of military aggression, obvious threat of military aggression and military aggression.

The government wants to recognize fall of a foreign missile in its territorial waters as an obvious threat of military aggression, which allows deployment of troops, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This posture is a huge escalation for the Japanese government, and I hope to heck that the US, Japan, and South Korea are coordinating on these moves, because any further threat against North Korea could, potentially, put Kim Jung Un into another tailspin, where he orders the launching of more missiles, some of which may probably wind up in the Sea of Japan.

Why The Donald Should Cool It On North Korea "The Fat Boy" Can't Even Deliver His "Little Boy"!

The realized truth of modern history is crystal clear. Washington had no business intervening in a quarrel between two no-count wanna be dictators (Syngman Rhee and Kim Il Sung) on the Korean peninsula in June 1950, and surely has no business still stationing 29,000 American soldiers there 67 years latter.

Rhee's army and national police were drawn from the ranks of those who had collaborated with the Japanese occupation during World War II, and this was the biggest factor that made civil war inevitable. That the US backed these quislings guaranteed widespread support for the Communist forces led by Kim IL Sung, and provoked the rebellion in the South that was the prelude to open North-South hostilities. Rhee, for his part, was eager to draw in the United States, and the North Koreans, for their part, were just as eager to invoke the principle of proletarian internationalism to draw in the Chinese and the Russians.

Russia Warns U.S. Not To Act Unilaterally Against North Korea

In response to the US vice president, Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said that Mike Pence’s statement on the US running out of “strategic patience”
towards Pyongyang does not contribute to resolving the crisis. The top Russian diplomat also voiced hope there will be no repeat of the US strike on Syria in North Korea.

On Monday, speaking from the DMZ, Mike Pence said the world has witnessed the “strength and resolve of Trump in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan,” and threatened North Korea “not to test” this resolve or “or the strength of the armed forces of the United States.”

CNN - Trump may have to be patient about North Korea

The United States has lost its strategic patience with North Korea. So what's a had-it-up-to-here superpower to do to stop a pariah nation bent on putting its nuclear weapons on top of a missile that could reach America?

Tough talk, for sure. Lean on China to turn off its life support to its neighbor, for another. But for all the warnings that Trump will fix the showdown with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, it's so far unclear whether at its foundation, his strategy is all that different from previous administrations -- which for the last quarter century have failed to stop his nuclear march.

Nothing to see here: US carrier still thousands of miles from Korea

On Saturday – according to photographs released by the U.S. Navy – the carrier passed north through the Sunda Strait, the passage between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java. It's about 3,500 miles from Korea.

U.S. Navy officials in Pearl Harbor and Washington declined to comment on the ship’s movements, other than to confirm the April 15 movement through the Sunda Strait. Off the record, several officials expressed wonderment at the persistent reports that the Vinson was already nearing Korea. “We’ve made no such statement,” said one official.

N. Korean official: Ready for war if Trump wants it
The state House Public Safety Committee unanimously passed a resolution Thursday.

Committee Vice Chairman Matt LoPresti says he's not trying to spread fear. But he wants the public to know the government is taking steps to protect them in the worst case scenario.

He's aiming to get state funding to re-equip Cold War-era fallout shelters.

The resolution that moved forward Thursday said that in 1981, Oahu had hundreds of fallout shelters -- "many stocked with medical kits, food, and sanitary kits." But in later years, funding dried up, and stocks were thrown out.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Executive Officer Toby Clairmont showed lawmakers a response plan from 1985 that hasn't been updated since.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering the immense, nearly pathological dysfunction of the various areas of the Hawaiian government, I would encourage every resident of Hawaii not to count on the government of the State to truly be able to do anything concrete to help you, and encourage you to plan - and prep - for yourself, and for the people you care about.

North Korea 'will test missiles weekly', senior official tells BBC

North Korea will continue to test missiles despite international condemnation and increasing military tensions with the US, a senior official has told the BBC in Pyongyang.

"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.
He said that an "all out war" would result if the US took military action.
Earlier, US Vice-President Mike Pence warned North Korea not to test the US.
He said his country's "era of strategic patience" with North Korea was over.
Mr Pence arrived in Seoul on Sunday hours after North Korea carried out a failed missile launch.

Tensions have been escalating on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the translation here is correct (and remember when Former Iranian Prime Minister Ahmadinejad was accused of saying something he really didn't say?!?

Striking North Korea Could Harm Key U.S. Ally, Analysts Warn

International security analysts have cast doubt on reports that the United States may be considering a preemptive military strike against North Korea, warning such action could have huge consequences on a key U.S. ally and upset a carefully managed balance of power between Kim Jong Un and the West.

NBC News, citing multiple senior intelligence officials, reported Thursday evening that the U.S. may launch military action against North Korea if it carried out suspected plans to conduct its sixth nuclear test in the coming days.

Several reports have speculated the North could do so after satellite imagery showed an unusual level of activity at the country’s Punggye-ri nuclear testing facility. And North Korea’s vice foreign minister told the Associated Press Friday that Pyongyang has no qualms about launching a preemptive strike if the U.S. displayed any “reckless” military aggression.

Senior Chinese, U.S. officials exchange views on Korean Peninsula situation

Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson exchanged views on the situation on the Korean Peninsula via phone on Sunday.

The talk came after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea had reportedly fired an unidentified missile early on Sunday from its eastern coastal city of Sinpo.

But the missile was believed to have exploded on launch, according to South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Yang and Tillerson also discussed the implementation of those agreements reached by the two countries' presidents during their first meeting in the U.S. state of Florida earlier this month.

The successful meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S. President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate has set a constructive tone, defined the direction and made a plan for the development of bilateral ties, Yang told Tillerson, noting that the two leaders also held a good phone conversation just a few days ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sounds like an absolutely wonderful way of moving forward; unfortunately, President Trump and his advisors are working against a "hard deadline" of 9 May, which is about 3 weeks away, when South Korea elects a new President, due to the fact that President Park was impeached by the South Korean government, and thrown out of office.

The Chinese people - and Government - tend to look at the long term, in terms of governmental, and military actions; Donald Trump understands that if the next President of South Korea is supportive of the "sunshine policy",which advocates for cooperation and involvement with North Korea, he will not have a snowball's chance in hell of getting the South to go along with a decap strike, leading to regime change in North Korea.

Additionally, South Korea, Russia, and China are looking at President Trump's rapidly growing string of broken campaign promises and wondering about the degree to which he can be trusted, at all, to keep his word.

However this gets resolved, it's going to be an intense three weeks for both Koreas, until May 9th.

Putin moves missiles to North Korea border as Russia gets ready for WAR

VIDEO footage appears to show Russian military forces being moved on mass to the border with North Korea as the world edges closer to World War 3.Russia has reportedly moved weapons towards Vladivostok, just eight miles from the border with North Korea.The city is within striking distance of Kim Jong-un’s secretive state.

Although unconfirmed by the Russian government, the movement of tanks and missiles was spotted by terrified people living in the border city and posted on social media.According to reports, the military convoy caught on camera included eight surface-to-air missiles, all part of Russian Air Defence.

Vladimir Putin already has a major navy base in Vladivostok.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these reports are true, we are looking at things getting out of control on the Korean Peninsula very, very quickly.

The distance between Russia and the North Korean border is very short.

The border between Russia and North Korea, according to the official Russian definition, consists of 17 kilometres (11 mi) of "terrestrial border" and 22.1 km (12 nautical miles) of "maritime border". It is the shortest of the international borders of Russia

Mike Pence Puts North Korea On Notice For Missile, Nuclear Tests

“North Korea would do well not to test [President Trump’s] resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.”

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence put North Korea on notice on Monday, warning that recent U.S. strikes in Syria and Afghanistan showed that the resolve of President Donald Trump should not be tested.

Pence and South Korean acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn, speaking a day after a failed missile test by the North and two days after a huge display of missiles in Pyongyang, also said they would strengthen anti-North Korea defenses by moving ahead with the early deployment of the THAAD missile-defense system.

Pence is on the first stop of a four-nation Asia tour intended to show America’s allies, and remind its adversaries, that the Trump administration was not turning its back on the increasingly volatile region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pence is characterising President Trump's "strength and resolve" by his actions of bombing Syria for something the Syrian government most likely didn't do, and using a MOAB in Afghanistan "because he could".

Could someone please tell me, how in the name of heaven, these actions translated into "strength and resolve", where there was absolutely no restraint, or honest fact-finding going on in Trump's White House, before these actions were taken?!?

How to bring down the elephant in the room

The reason why I decided to tackle this issue today is that the forces who broke Trump in less than a month are also the very same forces who have forced him into a political 180: the Neocons and the US deep state. However, I think that these two concepts can be fused into on I would call the “Ziocons”: basically Zionists plus some rabid Anglo imperialists à la Cheney or McCain. These are the folks who control the US corporate media, Hollywood, Congress, most of academia, etc. These are the folks who organized a ferocious assault on the “nationalist” or “patriotic” wing of Trump supporters and ousted Flynn and Bannon and these are the folks who basically staged a color revolution against Trump. There is some pretty good evidence that the person in charge of this quiet coup is Jared Kushner, a rabid Zionist. Maybe. Maybe not.

Despite The Saber Rattling By North Korea, They Do Not Even Test A Missile. I Thank God, President Trump, And China For That!

I know President Trump’s work with China led to the good behavior of North Korea. Plus, the fact that Trump showed North Korea the United States would not take their threats sitting down was a huge factor in their backing off of even a missile test. I believed late last night that we would not strike NK for only a missile test, but if they harmed a hair on our back, or South Korea, or Japan, a war would be our only choice. I praise God this did not happen.

I wonder if we are about to see a decrease in North Korea’s threats, as China reigns them in. I think President Trump’s work with China’s President made a huge impact in the way China has started to view and treat North Korea. They are getting far closer to good relations with the US and pulling away from their pampering of Lil’ Kim. I think they may have closed the nuclear playground for Lil’ Kim.

U.S. Vice President Pence Heading to Seoul, Is US Attack against North Korea “On Hold”?

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence heads to Seoul, part of a 10-day Asia trip to include Japan, Indonesia and Australia visits. A White House statement said he’ll “arrive in Seoul…on April 16,” return home on April 25.
Trump launching aggression on North Korea risking nuclear war while his vice-president is in East Asia seems unlikely.

For now, he’ll most likely continue tough talk, saber rattle off North Korea’s coastline, pressure China and impose more sanctions. What comes later remains to be seen.

An unnamed White House foreign policy advisor said Pence will meet with South Korea officials on Pyongyang’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs, arriving the day after the DPRK’s Day of the Sun national holiday, commemorating Kim Il-sung’s 105th birthday, the country’s founder.
The White House has contingency plans in case Pence’s trip coincides with Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test, the White House added without further elaboration.

Although Steven Lendman is one of my favorite peace and social justice bloggers, I respectfully disagree with him on this.

Pyongyang warns of retaliation against US ‘military hysteria’

North Korea told the United States on Saturday to end its “military hysteria” or face retaliation as the reclusive state marked the 105th birth anniversary of its founding father with mass military parades in the capital Pyongyang.

The warning came as a US aircraft carrier and destroyers steamed into waters off the Korean Peninsular.

The arrival follows what is perceived as a shift in US military policy under President Donald Trump. Last week, the US attacked a Syrian airfield for the first time with cruise missiles and this week dropped the world’s largest non-nuclear bomb on Afghanistan. Another first.

Does this shift include North Korea is the question as tensions on the Korean peninsula have escalated over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile testing program in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. North Korea is reportedly building an intercontinental ballistic missile that could strike the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the pieces appear to be well in place; it is just a matter of time before something happens here, most likely instigated by the US military.

US government prepared to launch a pre-emptive attack against North Korea before its nuclear bomb test, 14 April, 2017

So far, as nearly as anyone can discern, that test hasn't happened yet.

However, the US government loves to initiate false flags, to get its geopolitical agendas moving.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against a false flag here, to be blamed on North Korea, to kick things off in the next week or so.

THE U.S. AND CHINA: WHY THE SUDDEN CONVERGENCE ON NORTH KOREA?

China has effectively subsidized and supported the North Korean state for the past 70 years as a buffer against a land invasion from South Korea. China supplies North Korea with fossil fuels and other essentials and protects it diplomatically.

But does this buffer-state strategy make sense in today's world? The threat is now from nuclear missiles and trade wars, not a land invasion. Though we cannot know what's being discussed or decided behind close doors, the high cost of subsidizing a rogue nuclear state for the now-irrelevant value of a physical buffer may finally be weighing on Chinese decision-makers.

Then there's the all-important matter of "face". The perception of status, influence and power--what's known as "face"--is the core concern in East-Asian societies. "Losing face" by being revealed as powerless and lacking influence is to be avoided at all costs.

Former Defense Secretary William Perry on why we didn't go to war with North Korea in 1994

In 1994, the United States was on the brink of war with North Korea. The Clinton administration had intelligence that North Korea was about to move fuel rods from its nuclear reactor at Yongbyon, north of Pyongyang, to a reprocessing center — the first step in making a nuclear weapon.

The Pentagon drew up plans to destroy the facility with cruise missiles and F-117 Stealth fighters. William J. Perry, who as Defense secretary had drawn up the plan, ultimately decided not to proceed. Although he believed the Pentagon could safely destroy the plant without spreading radiation, he also thought that North Korea would retaliate against South Korea, and that the hostilities could engulf the region in a cataclysmic war.

Pence Heading to Seoul, Possible US Aggression on Hold

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence heads to Seoul, part of a 10-day Asia trip to include Japan, Indonesia and Australia visits. A White House statement said he’ll “arrive in Seoul…on April 16,” return home on April 25.

Trump launching aggression on North Korea risking nuclear war while his vice-president is in East Asia seems unlikely.

But it would make a great bloody shirt to wave!

North Korea displays ballistic missiles, vows due response if US attacks

Pyongyang has showcased its submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) for the first time during a massive military parade, with a senior North Korean official vowing due response to any attack against the East Asian nation.

On Saturday, state TV showed images of the Pukkuksong-2 SLBMs and several KN-08 and KN-14 missiles on trucks along with tanks and other heavy military hardware being paraded on Kim Il-sung Square in the capital, Pyongyang.

Leader Kim Jong-un oversaw the parade which was celebrating the 105th birthday of state founder Kim Il Sung, his grandfather. He also addressed thousands of soldiers and people taking part in the celebrations.

The event also paraded what appeared to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

North Korea Foreign Minister: US Becoming More Aggressive And “Making Problems”

The North Korean Foreign Minister in the video below explains how the US continues to become more aggressive toward North Korea. He explains that it is the US that creates the problems not North Korea. We all know North Korea is no saint nation, but with our own eyes we see a US carrier strike group just off their waters and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson saying, “the military option is on the table”.

The article goes on to explain how Kim Jung-un of North Korea has threatened the US. The interesting part here is there are no audio or video clips on Kim saying anything nor have I heard anything to date. If he did say something like that it would not surprise me. The US has a carrier strike force off his waters.

FLASHBACK - THE BIG LIE SELLING YOU WAR WITH NORTH KOREA

The official claim that North Korea fired this torpedo at a South Korean warship is based on the following blueprint of a North Korean torpedo claimed to be the weapon recovered from the ocean floor.

There are several differences between the torpedo plans and the actual torpedo recovered from the floor of the ocean. But I am going to focus on just one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A false-flag has already been used once to try to start war with North Korea. There is no reason it will not be tried again.

Here is one scenario.

The US Navy has raised eyebrows with a heacy anti-submarine exercise off the coast of California while the media has made a big deal about the claim that nobody knows where many of North Korea's submarines happen to be, including the one that can launch missiles.

So, a US submarine near California fires off a missile towards the land where it is "heroically" shot down by an Aegis ship, and declared as a failed attack by North Korea. Sorry the wreckage of "North Korea's missile is too deep to find; just take the government's word for it, of course!

Piece of Cake: New Normal of Trump's Foreign Policy

Here's the Commander-in-chief of the Beautiful Piece of Chocolate Cake School of Foreign Policy, expanding on his next move regarding North Korea.

"We are sending an armada. Very powerful. We have submarines. Very powerful. Far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. That I can tell you."

As if bombing nuclear-armed North Korea would be as much of a piece of cake as Tomahawking a semi-deserted air base in Syria. But then, that's the beauty of a box of chocolates foreign policy; you never know what you're gonna get.

Trump: NATO No Longer Obsolete, Needs to Play Bigger Role Fighting Daesh

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have seen some incredible back-flips from President Trump on both foreign and domestic policies, which would completely make the most ardent, and capable, of gymnasts, dizzy.

These reversals do not augur well for peace in this work, and folks...something wicked this way will come, because of them.

Russia calls for restraint amid North Korea-US crisis

Russia has urged all sides involved in the crisis in the Korean Peninsula to show "restraint", warning of any "provocative steps" amid reports of potential military confrontation between North Korea and the United States.

"Moscow is watching with great concern the escalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.

"We call for restraint from all countries and warn countries not to pursue actions that could consist of any provocative steps."

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have increased over the past weeks. Washington has been concerned by North Korea’s nuclear tests, which Pyongyang believes act as deterrence against a potential invasion by the US or South Korea.

The United States has deployed a strike group, including a large aircraft carrier, to the Korean Peninsula, and North Korea has said it is ready for war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia, generally one of the "adults in the room in the bowels of geopolitical power" is entirely correct to be concerned.

There is a hard deadline against which President Trump, and his military advisors are working, and that is the South Korean presidential election, which happens on 9 May; that's less than a month away.

If South Korea elects a president who is pro the "sunshine policy" with North Korea, they are going to push back against any military confrontation against North Korea; that is why President Trump and his advisors, feel compelled to do any military action against North Korea sooner rather later, while South Korea is under the control of a relatively weak, "caretaker government!"

US May Launch Preemptive Strike On North Korea Ahead Of Nuclear Test

With just two days to go until North Korea's "Day of the Sun" celebrations, when as reported yesterday it may conduct its 6th nuclear test at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site, NBC reports citing multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials that in the latest stepwise escalation, the U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that Kim Jong-Un's nation North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test. Note: North Korea does not even have to carry out the text: mere conviction on the side of the US that it would, is sufficient.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So even if North Korea back off and cancels the test, the US will attack anyway!!!

Donald Trump: Just Another Neocon Warmonger

“Talk is cheap” is a phrase that politicians teach us constantly. This time the teacher is Donald Trump. Donald Trump campaigned as an outsider, someone that was not owned by the establishment, and someone who would fight the globalists and drain “the swamp.” But “talk is cheap.”

In 2013, AFTER Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was accused of using sarin gas against his own countrymen, Trump tweeted, “What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.” (August 29) And, “Obama’s war in Syria has the potential to widen into a worldwide conflict.” (September 5) And, “Forget Syria and make America great again.” (September 11) And, again, “We should . . . stay out of Syria and other countries that hate us, rebuild our own country and make it strong and great again--USA!” (September 12)

US Vice President’s Visit to Seoul to Send ‘Clear Message’ to Pyongyang

South Korea hopes to send a clear message to its' northern neighbor during the visit of US VP Michael Pence, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cho June-hyuck said on Wednesday.

South Korea hopes to send a clear message to North Korea during the visit of US Vice President Michael Pence, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Cho June-hyuck said on Wednesday.

"As Vice President Pence's South Korean visit comes at a very sensitive time… A clear message on joint efforts in terms of the South Korea-U.S. alliance against North Korea will be sent out," the spokesman said, as quoted by the Yonhap news agency, stressing that this will be the first visit by Pence to Asia since taking office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing appears to be driving the US government's rush to war against North Korea; South Koreans go to the polls on 9 May to elect a new president. At the moment, there is a caretaker, transitional government in place until the results of the election are made known.

The last thing President Trump and his military advisors want is having to deal with a duly elected South Korean President, who wants to observe the "sunshine policy" of cooperation and trade with North Korea.

That's part of what is driving this furious rush to war, which appears to me to be happening sooner rather than later.

In fact, I would not be surprised if Trump ordered an attack on North Korea right after Easter Sunday, when Vice-President Pence will be spending the day with US troops in South Korea.

US Airstrike on North Korea Risks Leading to '5-6 Chernobyl-Type Disasters'

If Washington decides to carry out a unilateral military action against Pyongyang, the attack could lead to a nuclear disaster affecting the entire Korean Peninsula, Director of the Center of South Korean Studies at the Institute of Far Eastern Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Zhebin told Sputnik.

"Approximately 30 nuclear power plants are operational in South Korea. Several of them could be destroyed even if conventional bombs and shells are used. This could lead to five-six Chernobyl-type disasters on a relatively small area of 99 square kilometers that could instantly turn into a place unsuitable for life," he explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a multi-catastrophe in the making, if President Trump goes ahead with military attacks against North Korea.

I hope, if there are any adults in the room still left that he trusts as confidants, they will make these dangers known to him.

‘Riskier than striking Syria’: Beijing warns US against attacking North Korea

China has warned the US against using military force against North Korea, after a surprise redeployment of an aircraft carrier group. Washington’s regional allies said they expect it to consult with them before any action.
Tension is mounting in the region as US President Donald Trump said he would solve the “North Korean problem” with or without China’s help. The warning came amid the diversion of the aircraft carrier group ‘USS Carl Vinson’ to the Korean Peninsula and a week after Trump ordered the US Navy to fire a barrage of 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase as punishment for an alleged chemical attack in Idlib province.

Responding to US belligerence, Beijing called against using force against Pyongyang.

“Military force cannot resolve the issue,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told reporters in Beijing. “Amid challenge there is opportunity. Amid tensions we will also find a kind of opportunity to return to talks.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Chinese assessment in this issue is bang spot on; North Korea could, potentially, visit a world of hurt upon South Korea, should it be attacked.

I, for one, am praying for cooler, more sane heads to prevail in the White House, and that talks with the US, China, and North and South Korea be revisited, and immediately.

Such talks should offer a true, detailed peace treaty to North Korea, to replace the existing armistice, with the quid pro quo being that North Korea stops its nuclear weapons program for that to happen.

Of course, this...would be logical.

State paper says China would protect a denuclearized North Korea

China would step up its protection of North Korea should the isolated state halt its nuclear program, an editorial in a state-backed newspaper said on Thursday, as Beijing tries to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Pyongyang's continued nuclear and missile testing program has prompted the United States to send a navy carrier group to near the Korean peninsula in a show of force aimed at deterring more tests.

North Korea marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of state founder Kim Il Sung on Saturday, North Korea's biggest national day called "Day of the Sun". Leaders have in the past used the date to carry out weapons tests.

China, North Korea's main ally, has called for a peaceful resolution of the Korean tensions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a brilliant gambit, on the part of the Chinese government, but unfortunately, may well fall on deaf ears in Pyongyang.

The purpose of North Korea's nuclear weapons program is as a deterrent to potential military action against it by the United States; I seriously doubt the such an offer by the Chinese government will be entertained by Kim Jung Un, at this point, because he knows that the US military is about to strike it, and potentially hard.

Russian scientists figure out consequences of US-North Korea nuclear war

According to Leonid Bolshov, Director of the Institute of the Nuclear Safety Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, they have analyzed all the possible risks to figure out threat for our territory.

Under negative development of events, the radioactive cloud will not reach Russia. The case is that in spring wind from China and Gobi desert blows to the Pacific Ocean. Thus, radioactive precipitations will fall not in the Russian Far East, but the Pacific Ocean.
