The Oklahoma mom whose 19-month-old child was allegedly killed by her dentist boyfriend is speaking out about her loss in an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil.
Roxanne Randall’s toddler son, Lincoln, died in July, two days after her then-boyfriend Bert Franklin - a married father of four - allegedly dropped him on his head and kicked him, police said.

Cold War 2.0: There will be No Russophobia Reset

In the end, there was hardly a reset; rather a sort of tentative pause on Cold War 2.0. Interminable days of sound and fury were trudging along when President Trump finally decided NATO is “no longer obsolete”; still, he wants to “get along” with Russia.

Just ahead of meeting US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow, President Vladimir Putin had stressed on Russian TV that trust (between Russia and the US) is “at a workable level, especially in the military dimension, but it hasn’t improved. On the contrary, it has degraded.” Emphasis on a pedestrian “workable,” but most of all “degraded” – as in the National Security Council releasing a report essentially accusing Moscow of spreading fake news.

What The Corporate Media Never Tells You About North Korea

There is a great deal of propaganda and deliberate misinformation about North Korea, which the public should know.

While neocons, a cheering corporate media, and Deep State, rush to war with North Korea, information is the ultimate weapon.

For example, did you know that North Korea, China, and India, are the only three nations who have committed to a “no nuclear first” policy? They have pledged never to use nuclear weapons “first”, but of course reserve the right to use them if attacked.

How many times has the US threatened to use nuclear weapons against North Korea?

Do you know that North Korea has repeatedly asked the US to engage in bilateral talks, to cool off the ever-escalating tension? The offer was flatly rejected by both Obama and Trump.

Can you resolve differences within your family without dialog? No dialogue, no peace. Why won’t the US talk to North Korea??

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know precisely when such an attack against North Korea may be coming; but all indications are that it is coming.

I will breathe a heavy sign of relief, and I hope to heck I am absolutely, completely, dead wrong in my assessment of what is happening here, but don't think I am.

One does not place the kinds of military assets as the US government has placed just off the Korean peninsula, and not use them.

Video: US Armored Vehicles Arrive in Northern Syria. Is It An Invasion?

US armored vehicles arrived in Northern Syria with US convoy stationed near Darbasiyah Village.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the short answer to the question posed by the title of the article is, yes.

The Trump administration has gone full-metal-jacket toward a regime change in Damascus, and it is only a matter of time before we are looking at direct confrontation with Russian ground troops, which are soon to be deployed there.

The Numbers are Staggering: U.S. is ‘World Leader’ in Child Poverty

America’s wealth grew by 60 percent in the past six years, by over $30 trillion. In approximately the same time, the number of homeless children has also grown by 60 percent.

Financier and CEO Peter Schiff said,

“People don’t go hungry in a capitalist economy.”

The 16 million kids on food stamps know what it’s like to go hungry. Perhaps, some in Congress would say, those children should be working.

“There is no such thing as a free lunch,” insisted Georgia Representative Jack Kingston, even for schoolkids, who should be required to “sweep the floor of the cafeteria” (as they actually do at a charter school in Texas).

The callousness of U.S. political and business leaders is disturbing, shocking. Hunger is just one of the problems of our children. Teacher Sonya Romero-Smith told about the two little homeless girls she adopted:

“Getting rid of bedbugs, that took us a while. Night terrors, that took a little while. Hoarding food..”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, and should be totally unacceptable to an allegedly civilised society!!

McMaster says US must be prepared for military operations in North Korea

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster attempted to make clear Sunday that President Trump is seeking international support in trying to stop North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon, reasserting Trump’s vow that the U.S. will no longer be the world’s policeman.

“It’s an open defiance of the international community,” McMaster told “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s important for all of us to confront this regime… . None of us can accept a North Korea with a nuclear weapon.”

From essentially the start of Trump’s winning presidential campaign, he has criticized previous administrations about the financial and geo-political consequences of leading efforts to police or overthrow foreign regimes. He even threatened to resign from NATO unless other countries started paying their fair share for such efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These comments were not made for international effect but specifically for domestic consumption, as the American people are being mentally "groomed" toward the inevitability of military conflict with North Korea.

Presidency has been a burden on wife and youngest son says Donald Trump

President Donald Trump's presidency has been a strain on his family, particularly his wife and youngest son, the president has said.
In an interview on Sunday (30 April), Trump blasted criticisms of First Lady Melania Trump and noted how difficult it would be for their young son Barron to leave his school in New York.

Trump Not Ruling Out Attacking North Korea

After weeks of mounting international concerns about the possibility of the United States attacking North Korea, President Trump appeared extremely non-committal about the possibility of him ordering such an attack, insisting he wasn’t going to rule it out.

“I don’t know, I mean, we’ll see,” Trump insisted on CBS’ Meet the Press. This was a surprisingly mild response after weeks of talking about “taking care of” North Korea and bragging about dispatching a “armada” to the Korean Peninsula with an eye toward such a strike.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the elements are now in position for such an attack, and if, in fact, President Trump greenlights it, that has to come soon; South Korean elections happen next Tuesday, 9 May, and the man favored to win the election is an advocate of the "sunshine policy" toward North Korea, which is one of engagement.

May 01 09:31

Tensions Grow Between US, Turkey Along Syrian Border

The US responded to last week’s Turkish attacks on allied Kurdish forces in both Iraq and Syria by deploying a growing number of US troops in armored vehicles along the Syria-Turkey border, aiming to provide some sort of buffer and to prevent more Turkish attacks.

It doesn’t seem to be working, and if anything, tensions are now growing between the Turkish government and the US, with Turkish officials unhappy that the US is getting in their way, and seeing it as amounting to the US taking the side of the Kurds against them.

Turkish President Erdogan insisted he was “deeply saddened” to see the US flag flying alongside “terrorists” from the Kurdish YPG, saying he intends to demand President Trump stop supporting the Kurds in an upcoming White House visit, adding “this needs to be stopped right now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question now becomes, just how far is the US government prepared to go, in preventing Turkey from interfering in the creating of an independent Kurdistan?!?

US approves another hundreds-million-dollar arms sale to Israel

The United States has approved a proposal to sell Israel more weapons, including naval guns and technical support worth an estimated $440 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a statement on Friday that the State Department agreed to allow the possible sale of 13 76mm naval guns to Tel Aviv.

The Pentagon agency said it had notified the Congress about the State Department’s decision

MONSANTO ACCUSED IN COURT OF CONDUCTING AN ARMY OF SHILLS TO CRACKDOWN ON NEGATIVE ONLINE COMMENTS

In a San Francisco federal court case, the plaintiff accused GMO giants Monsanto of hiring third-parties who hide their association with the company to respond to negative online comments, also known as ‘shills’.

The case challenges Monsanto’s corrupt relationship with members of the Environmental Protection Agency and their attempts to manipulate scientific publications and crack down on online dissent. Monsanto’s ‘Let Nothing Go’ campaign allegedly hired online ‘shills’ to quickly respond to social media chatter about the carcinogenic properties of their ‘RoundUp’ product.

The plaintiff claims to have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of exposure to glyphosate in Monsanto’s ‘Roundup’ product, and believes that Monsanto aggressively attempted to remove all warnings of the risks surrounding the pesticide.

See below the accusation recorded in a United States District Court litigation summary:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When a corporation continues to push (and be allowed to push) a product which has been proven to be carcinogenic, why am I not surprised at their behaviour here?!?

When a toxic product is allowed to be sold, it simply fattens the wallets of the medical/industrial complex in this country, and that is why medicine, as it is practiced in the United States, is never about wellness, but always about profit.

Macedonian nationalists storm the parliament to hold on to power

Macedonia has been in a state of political crisis for more than two years, but the attack in Skopje may prove a turning point. For weeks VMRO had been filibustering efforts by the Social Democrats and their allies, an ethnic Albanian party, to elect a new speaker. On April 27th they at last managed to vote in Talat Xhaferi, an ethnic Albanian MP. Several hundred VMRO supporters, who had been demonstrating outside parliament, stormed the chamber and assaulted Social Democrats, ethnic Albanians and journalists. At least four deputies were hurt, one badly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another Soros color revolution?

Ron Paul Warns “We Are In The Last Stages Of The Welfare-Warfare State”

The breakdown of the congressional appropriations process, combined with hyper-interventionism via the Federal Reserve and foreign policy, suggest we are in the last stages of the welfare-warfare state. Whether this system’s inevitable collapse completes our descent into authoritarianism or leads to a restoration of limited, constitutional government and free markets depends on how effective those of us who know the truth are in spreading the ideas of liberty.

At least 352 civilians killed by US-led strikes on Islamic State group

At least 352 civilians have been killed in U.S.-led strikes against Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria since the operation began in 2014, the U.S. military said in a statement on Sunday.

The Combined Joint Task Force, in its monthly assessment of civilian casualties from the U.S. coalition’s operations against the militant group, said it was still assessing 42 reports of civilian deaths.

It added that 45 civilians were killed between November 2016 and March 2017. It reported 80 civilian deaths from August 2014 to the present that had not previously been announced. The report included 26 deaths from three separate strikes in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This number appears astonishingly low to me.

US REPEATING SAME WAR CRIME IN SYRIA THAT STARVED 500,000 CHILDREN TO DEATH IN IRAQ

The Associated Press states that “any property or interest in property of the individuals’ sanctioned must be blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them.” Also according to AP, “Three U.S. officials said that the sanctions are part of a broader effort to cut off funding and other support to Syria’s President Bashar Assad and his government amid the country’s escalating civil war. The U.S. blames Assad for a recent chemical attack on Syrian civilians, and responded earlier this month by launching missiles against a Syrian airfield.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since taking the Oath of Office in January, President Trump has changed his position on so many issues, that he is giving me a severe case of intellectual whiplash; Syria is one of those issues, and I see more US troops on the ground here soon, to attempt regime change against Al Assad.

ROTHSCHILD BANK NOW UNDER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION AFTER BARON DAVID DE ROTHSCHILD INDICTMENT

Last year, Baron David de Rothschild was indicted by the French government after he was accused of fraud in a scheme that allegedly embezzled large sums of money from British pensioners.

It has taken many years to bring this case against Rothschild and his company the Rothschild Financial Services Group, which trapped hundreds of pensioners in a bogus loan scheme between the years of 2005 and 2008.

One by one the pensioners lost their money and pressed charges against the notorious banker, beginning a case that would take many years to get even an indictment.

In June, Paris-based liaison judge Javier Gómez Bermudez ruled that Rothschild must face a trial for his crimes, and ordered local police to seek him out in his various mansions that are spread throughout the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By now, Baron David de Rothschild is probably living it up in yet another mansion he owns, in a country which does not have an extradition treaty with France.

JAPAN DEPLOYS WARSHIP TO SUPPORT US 'ARMADA', AUTHORIZES "NECESSARY USE OF WEAPONS" FOR FIRST TIME SINCE WORLD WAR II

In a post-World War II precedent-setting move (under the country’s expanded military doctrine), the Japanese Navy has reportedly deployed a helicopter carrier (and authorized it to use weapons, if necessary), to escort and protect a US supply vessel.

Defense Minister Tomomi Inada ordered the Izumo Maritime Self-Defense Force helicopter carrier to protect a US Navy supply ship, which is heading towards the Pacific to resupply the American armada sent by Donald Trump to keep North Korean nuclear ambitions at bay, sources told Kyodo news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the moment, I can see nothing which is moving away from military action against North Korea and very soon.

The South Korean elections will be held next Tuesday, 9 May. If the attack does not happen by that point, and with a political "dove" who favors the "sunshine policy" apt to become the President of South Korea, this will have to happen quickly, or not at all.

7 Signs That You May Be a Sociopath

Dealing with a compulsive liar, or any number of toxic co-workers and colleagues can by incredibly trying. While many of these people may be well-intentioned, or perfectly fine people in their own right, they’re stuck with some very real flaws — flaws that make life hell for those around them. But often these flaws are signs of a deeper and more troubling problem, and could even be red flags indicating that someone is a sociopath.

The Rise of the Generals

Who is behind the seeming conversion of Trump to hawk? The generals, Bibi Netanyahu and the neocons, Congressional hawks with Cold War mindsets, the Saudi royal family and the Gulf Arabs — they are winning the battle for the president's mind. But before President Trump proceeds along the path laid out for him by his generals, brave and patriotic men that they are, he should discover if any of them opposed any of the idiotic wars of the last 15 years, beginning with that greatest of strategic blunders — George Bush's invasion of Iraq.

THIS IS WHAT A BANK RUN LOOKS LIKE: HOME CAPITAL LOSES 70% OF DEPOSITS IN ONE WEEK

In the beginning it was a slow pace, then it became a casual jog. Then, starting early last week, the jog morphed into a full-blown run, and - as of the past 3 days - the withdrawal of deposits at Home Capital Group's high interest savings accounts has mutated into a full blown mad dash not to be the last person to have their money at what is now an effectively insolvent alternative lender.

According to HCG's latest press release this morning, the "less than prime" Canadian mortgage lender held HISA deposits of only $391 million as of Monday, May 1; this is down C$130 million from Friday, or a reduction in the total amount by 25%. It is also down 72% from the C$1.4 billion reported one week ago.

For those who need to think all the way back to the third Greek bailout of 2015 to recall what a bank run looks like, here is what the deposit situation at HCG has looked like over the past month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial "canary in the the coal mine" for other lending institutions in Canada, and may be the start of a contagion which cannot be contained.

The Relentless Push Towards War: “What Could Possibly Go Wrong… How About EVERYTHING?”

It doesn’t seem to matter who’s in office in the US — Republican/Democrat, conservative/liberal — there’s a war machine constantly running.

And when it does, the long relative peace that the US and Europe have enjoyed (even as they’ve visited a lot of death and destruction elsewhere) will be shattered.

The resurgence of police power

Police power is government power and vice versa. It is the police who enforce the liberty-stealing laws passed by government criminals. That’s why I hold police in such contempt.

A Tax Cut Big Enough To Save the Economy (May kill it instead, says Peter Schiff)

Donald Trump has made good on one of his most audacious campaign promises by submitting what he describes as the biggest tax cut in U.S. History. For once, at least, this does not appear to be Trumpian braggadocio. It really may be the mother of all tax cuts. But if passed, what may this bunker buster do to the economy? While I have rarely met a tax cut I didn’t like, this one just may be more likely to send the economy into a downward spiral than it is to send up to orbit.

Susan Rice: Unmasked Warmonger (Video)

One of the foremost agents of the Deep State that operated in the White House during the Obama years was his former national security advisor, Susan Rice. While the latest news cycle about Rice was in relation to the wiretapping of Trump and his team, that is the least of her crimes. Her warmongering influence extends from our intervention in Libya all the way to African genocide in the 90s.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes an in-depth look at the warmongering antics of Susan Rice. From lying to cover for Obama and Hillary in the Benghazi incident to setting in motion events that led to the invasion of the Congo which left millions of Africans dead, her list of crimes is long indeed. And throughout her storied career, she has also acquired a net worth of almost 40 million dollars. Clearly in her case, crime does pay. But will she ever answer for them?

America’s War against the People of Korea: The Historical Record of US War Crimes

An armistice is an agreement by the warring parties to stop fighting. It does signify the end of war.

What underlies the 1953 Armistice Agreement is that one of the warring parties, namely the US has consistently threatened to wage war on the DPRK for the last 60 years.

The US has on countless occasions violated the Armistice Agreement. It has remained on a war footing. Casually ignored by the Western media and the international community, the US has actively deployed nuclear weapons targeted at North Korea for more than half a century in violation of article 13b) of the Armistice agreement.

The armistice remains in force. The US is still at war with Korea. It is not a peace treaty, a peace agreement was never signed.

It also said that the equipment "will improve Israel’s capability to meet current and future threats in the defense of its borders and territorial waters.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT borders?!? Israel refuses to declare where, precisely, its borders are, in order for the Zionists to fulfill their dream of "Eretz Israel", which will need to "munch" territory from neighboring territories to achieve their goals of enlarging the country so that it runs from the Nile to the Euphrates.

YouTube Creators: YouTube is a Monopsony; Time to Reclaim What's Ours (Video)

By now, if you or anyone you know has been in the regular habit of making their own videos, and then uploading them YouTube, then by now you’re all too aware of the advertising boycott taking place that has decreased the income streams of those content creators by up to 95% in many instances.

If you expect to fully understand how something like this happened in the first place, or if income streams will ever recover, or if something like this can and will happen again, the first you must understand the difference between a monopoly and a monopsony. Then you must convince your legislators to pass new or additional anti-trust legislation to prevent this problem from growing even larger, and eventually crossing over into all markets, not just YouTube videos.

-- A monopoly is defined as: A situation where a single company or group owns all or nearly all of the market for a given type of product or service, stifling competition.

Will Trump Release The Missing JFK Files? (Video)

In October this year, President Trump will have to make a decision. Not a particularly important decision in the eyes of many, but one that many historians and skeptics are salivating over. Unless President Trump blocks it, the National Archives will release 3,600 never-before-seen files relating to the JFK assassination and possibly the full unsealing of another 35,000 assassination related documents.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at what information does files could potentially reveal. Speculation is that the documents will show exactly how much the intelligence agencies knew about Oswald prior to the assassination, as well as his mysterious trip to Mexico City. As of now, the intelligence agencies have given no indication that they plan to petition to block the release of the documents. But hey, it’s still early

The economy is barely growing. These are 3 theories why.

The Commerce Department released estimates Friday showing that the economy is growing more slowly than it has in years.
For the first quarter of 2017, it grew a measly 0.7 percent, the worst growth since mid-2014. Economists had been hoping that sluggish economic growth would start to pick up by now as more people find work and wages increase, plus optimism gets a boost from the Trump administration’s promise to cut taxes. Two months ago, they’d predicted a slight uptick to 2 percent growth.

Update From the East Village Battlefront

Things are warming up in Manhattan East Village ahead of our 30 April Conference at Theatre 80. Theatre owner Lorcan Otway, keeps holding a firm position: he announced again and again that he won’t surrender to calls for censorship. I spent some time with this heroic, scholarly oriented human being. He deserves every possible support. If it isn’t for me, be there on Sunday at 5PM to support Lorcan and his staunch position on freedom and the 1st Amendment.

Meanwhile The Villager confirms that some Antifas may appear in the scene. Considering the reputation the Antifa bought itself in recent years, this news should be probably interpreted as a form of intimidation.

However, The Villager also published yesterday a beautiful interview with human rights Lawyer Stanley Cohen who participates in the event. I repost this interview in full. Please share it widely.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel Announces Plan for 15,000 More Settlement Homes in East Jerusalem

The Israeli Housing Ministry today announced plans to build 25,000 homes across metro Jerusalem, and within this announcement were 15,000 new settlement homes within occupied East Jerusalem areas, a massive expansion of settlement in the area.

Israeli officials don’t present expansions in the East Jerusalem settlements as “settlement” expansion, however, as they insist the area, occupied since 1967, is part of the “eternal” capital of Israel, and will never be given back to the Palestinians at any rate.

The latest move sparked a lot of international criticism, with Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat declaring the move an attempt at “deliberate sabotage” of the peace process, and noting that all settlement construction in the occupied territories is illegal under international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I mentioned on this blog, years ago, that if the Palestinian leadership didn't get its act together, and present themselves as the unified voice of the Palestinian people, the land they would get for an independent Palestine wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein.

I hate having been right on this, but it is apparently the case.

And please remember; Zionist Israelis see their country as the original "Eretz Israel", stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates, which means a number of neighboring countries will have to give up some of their territory, to make that happen.

The notice to NGOs comes a month after President Trump declared portions of the country an “area of active hostilities,” giving the military wider scope to launch strikes that could potentially kill more civilians.

Babies starve as war grinds on in Mosul

This is on the heads of the American people who pay for the fighters and weapons on both sides with their taxes!

By Isabel Coles | QAYYARA, Iraq

The babies cry with hunger but are so severely malnourished that doctors treating them at a hospital in Iraq would make their condition worse if they fed them enough to stop the pangs.

Many of the starving infants are from Mosul, where war between Islamic State militants and Iraqi forces is taking a heavy toll on several hundred thousand civilians trapped inside the city.

A new, specialist ward was opened recently to deal with the growing number of children from Mosul showing signs of malnutrition as the conflict grinds on -– most of them less than six-months-old.

US Deploys Troops in NE Syria as ‘Buffer’ Between Kurds, Turkey

The US has deployed a number of special forces troops and armored vehicles along the border between Kurdish-held northeast Syria and Turkey, with most of the troops sent to the area around Darbasiya, which was the site of heavy Turkish attacks earlier this week.

Officially, US commanders say the troops are there “monitoring the situation,” though Syrian Kurds say that in practice the US deployment is an attempt to establish a “buffer” to try to limit fighting between the two sides,, which has been raging since Turkey’s airstrikes were carried out.

From Turkey’s perspective, there are two trains of thought on their recent push to attack the Kurdish YPG, who they consider “terrorists.” On the one hand, there seems to be some hope that if they can displace the Kurds enough during the buildup to the invasion of the ISIS capital of Raqqa, the US might agree to change it to a joint US-Turkey operation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think we will continue to see more US troops in Syria, as regime change is definitely back on the table here, in the thinking of the American deep state.

But what happens when US troops run into direct confrontation with the Russian ground troops, which are being deployed there very soon?!?

Ongoing .01% ‘Crime du jour’ analyses + Big Picture context of US rogue state empire requiring arrests: BOTH REQUIRED or ‘We the People’ will have ‘leadership’ under Prescott Bush’s motto, Karl Rove’s promise, and Ben Franklin’s prediction

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“Claim everything. Explain nothing. Deny everything.” ~ Prescott Bush, 1966 (oligarch, father and grandfather of US Presidents)

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” ~ Three weeks before W. Bush’s election for a second term in 2004, Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, chiding Pulitzer-winning journalist, Ron Suskind.

Can Cannabis Prevent and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a serious condition usually caused by an external blow to the head that can cause severe and often chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be cognitive, behavioral, movement related, speech and visual impairing, mood altering, involve painful headaches, and even cause gastrointestinal issues.

In a three-year retrospective review of 446 separate cases of similarly injured patients, researchers found traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who had a history of cannabis consumption possessed increased survival rates compared to non-consumers (97.6 percent survived surgery, versus 88.5% of those who didn’t consume cannabis).

"Our data suggest an important link between the presence of a positive THC screen and improved survival after TBI," the researchers concluded. "With continued research, more information will be uncovered regarding the therapeutic potential of THC, and further therapeutic interventions may be established."

China draws red line for North Korea issue: war is not allowed

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi took a tough position on the North Korea issue on Wednesday, saying that war on the Korean Peninsula is absolutely unacceptable.

Wang made the remarks in a press conference after a Sino-German dialogue on cooperation with Sigmar Gabriel, the German vice-chancellor and foreign minister in Germany.

China has drawn a red line for the U.S., North Korea, and South Korea, that war on the Korean Peninsula is not allowed and that all consequences would be borne by the relevant countries should war break out.

China warns of necessary actions as US says THAAD to be operational in coming days

China expressed its grave concern after parts of the THAAD system were moved to the deployment site in South Korea, which the U.S. claims is purely defensive. China Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that the deployment of THAAD breaks the strategic balance in the region and ratchets up the tension on the Korean Peninsula.

China strongly urged the U.S. and South Korea to cancel the deployment and withdraw the equipment, and sent a strong warning that China will take necessary actions to safeguard its own interests.

Trump tough on South Korea: Threatens to terminate free trade deal, wants payment for THAAD missile defense system

President Donald Trump said that he will either renegotiate or terminate a "horrible" trade deal with South Korea, Reuters reported late Thursday.

The president also said he wants South Korea to pay for the $1 billion THAAD missile defense system, Reuters said.

Responses to Trump's comments soon arose, with an official from South Korea's automakers association telling Reuters that the group is now concerned about "the uncertainty" of the free trade agreement.

Shares in Hyundai Motor fell as much as 2.4 percent following Trump's comments. South Korea's won turned weaker on the comments.

Experts: North Korean nukes can defeat even the world's most advanced missile defense system

The US has successfully tested THAAD 12 times, but never used it in actual combat, which can play out much differently than controlled tests. "Things that work well at home on the test range don't always go as smoothly when deployed," Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, told the Associated Press.

Another scientist, David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists' Global Security Program, said that a salvo of North Korean short-range missiles could overwhelm THAAD.
