BREAKING NEWS: US Troops Deployed To Syria-Turkish Border
APRIL 29, 2017
U.S. armored vehicles are deploying in areas in northern Syria along the tense border with Turkey, a few days after a Turkish airstrike that killed 20 U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, a Syrian war monitor and Kurdish activists said Friday. Footage posted by Syrian activists online showed a convoy of U.S. armored vehicles driving on a rural road in the village of Darbasiyah, a few hundred meters from the Turkish border.
Clashes in the area were reported between Turkish and Kurdish forces Wednesday a day after the Turkish airstrike which also destroyed a Kurdish command headquarters.The Turkish airstrikes, which also wounded 18 members of the U.S.-backed People’s Protection Units, or YPG, in Syria were criticized by both the U.S. and Russia. The YPG is a close U.S. ally in the fight against the Islamic State group but is seen by Ankara as a terrorist group because of its ties to Turkey’s Kurdish rebels.

Sec. Tillerson Warns UN Security Council: ‘Act Before North Korea Does’
APRIL 29, 2017
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Friday for tougher sanctions — aimed mainly at China and other countries that continue to trade with North Korea — as a way to pressure Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear program. Tillerson, who chaired a special meeting of the United Nations Security Council, said the U.S. prefers a diplomatic solution. However, he stressed the U.S. reserves the option of military action to counteract North Korean aggression if necessary.
“All options for responding to future provocations must remain on the table,” he said. “Diplomatic and financial levers of power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary.” It was a stern speech calling for united diplomatic and economic action — and ramping up the pressure on China, North Korea’s economic lifeline. Tillerson was slated to meet with the Chinese foreign minister later on Friday. “Our goal is not regime change,” Tillerson said, nor does the U.S. want to destabilize the region.

US threatens N. Korea with more sanctions and suspension of diplomatic talks
APRIL 28, 2017
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking before the UN Security Council, has threatened to suspend diplomatic relations and impose additional sanctions affecting third parties with North Korea unless Pyongyang abandons its nuclear weapons program. Secretary of State Tillerson said on Friday that for years North Korea has dictated the terms of its “dangerous course of action and it’s time for us to retake control of the situation.”
Tillerson said that for too long the international community has been reactive and the “policy of strategic patience is over, additional patience will only lead to a nuclear North Korea.” Tillerson said since 1995 the US has provided $1.3 billion in aid to North Korea, and the US looks forward to renewing its contributions, but that Pyongyang must dismantle its nuclear weapons program if it wants to achieve international respect. Tillerson said North Korea must take “concrete steps” towards dismantling nuclear weapons “before we can being talks.”

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea Defiant! Is War Now ‘Imminent’?
APRIL 29, 2017
North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile in the early hours of Saturday morning, reports in South Korea said, amid rising military tensions with the US. The missile, launched from a region north of the capital, Pyongyang, appeared to have blown up a few seconds into flight, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said. US officials said the missile did not leave North Korean territory and was probably a medium-range missile known as a KN-17. It was the second failed test of a
ballistic missile this month and came amid a flurry of rhetoric from North Korea warning of “imminent” war against the US. “North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) early this morning,” Yonhap reported, quoting a statement issued by South Korea’s military. “It is estimated to have failed.” Donald Trump, the US president, said that North Korea “disrespected the wishes of China” with the missile test.

BREAKING NEWS: North Korea fires ballistic missile
APRIL 28, 2017
North Korea has launched a ballistic missile from an area north of the country’s capital, Pyongyang, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported, citing the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff. “North Korea fired an unidentified missile from a site in the vicinity of Bukchang in Pyeongannam-do (South Pyeongan Province) early this morning,” the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a statement, according to Yonhap.
The South Korean military are now analyzing the type of missile fired and flight distance of the projectile traveled. The reported launch comes amid rising tensions in the region and a US military buildup in response to the North Korean “nuclear threat.” It also comes just hours after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told the UN Security Council that the military option remains on the table for the US to curb Pyongyang’s nuclear program.

Kim Jong-Un ‘ready to send army of 500,000 women soldiers to the frontline’ if war erupts
APRIL 28, 2017
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is ready throw up to 500,000 women soldiers to the front line if war breaks out. Battalions of female soldiers took part in the nation’s biggest-ever live firing exercise to mark 55th anniversary of its military’s creation this week. There could be close to half a million women in the Korean People’s Army and Kim has told the forces they should be ready for war with South Korea. And the despot was mobbed by emotional female fighters when

he watched the firing displays from multiple rocket launcher systems during the competition late last year. “He organized this contest all of a sudden and guided it on the spot in order to estimate and confirm the combat capability of women gunners,” said the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). In the contest, Kim stressed the significance of training women soldiers for the “great war for national unification” and of preparing all gunners to be able to fight anywhere and any time, according to the KCNA.

US War Fleet Now Within ‘Strike Range’ of North Korea
APRIL 27, 2017
An “armada” of American warships – led by the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson – is now within range of the Hermit Kingdom. Donald Trump sent the Carl Vinson, guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain and guided-missile destroyers USS Michael Murphy and USS Wayne E Meyer to stop Kim Jong-un testing a new nuclear weapon or ballistic missile. The group is now in the Philippine Sea,
just east of the Japanese island of Okinawa – and is within “striking range” of North Korea. The navy fleet will continue north over the coming days. US Navy Admiral Harry Harris, the top US Pacific commander, said the group was standing by “in strike range and power projection range of North Korea if called upon to do that.” The fleet practiced for war with North Korea with a series of military drills yesterday.

North Korea Releases New Video Simulating Strike on White House
APRIL 27, 2017
A North Korean propaganda outlet Thursday released an inflammatory video clip showing a simulated attack on the White House, declaring “the enemy to be destroyed is in our sights.” The video comes at a particularly tense time in relations between North Korea and the United States, with the Trump administration sending warships to the region in a show of force against Kim Jong Un’s regime.
Earlier this week, North Korea conducted large-scale artillery drills, showing off conventional weaponry that can easily reach the South Korean capital of Seoul, home to some 25 million people. President Trump, who has been urging China to apply pressure to North Korea and to act if Beijing doesn’t, convened congressional lawmakers Wednesday to brief them on the “very grave threat” posed by Pyongyang.

BREAKING NEWS: Military preparations ‘underway’ on North Korea
APRIL 26, 2017
President Trump is stepping up diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea, and military preparations are “underway,” in the event such action is necessary, a senior administration official told reporters on Wednesday. But Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., told the media after a closed-door White House briefing on North Korea that “preemptive strike options were not presented” to the senators there. “The briefing showed
the thoroughness and the detail and the preparation and the work that’s going into making our military appropriately postured in the event that there is some unexpected development by North Korea, and our diplomatic effort,” Coons said. But, he said, “there was not specific conversation” about seeking congressional authorization for new sanctions or the use of force “or imminently needing any such authorization.” His comments came as he emerged from a briefing from top Trump national security aides in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building that is part of the White House complex.

North Korea Claims 5 million youth “combat ready” and will “annihilate” US with nuclear bombs
APRIL 26, 2017
North Korea‘s Youth League has vowed to use 5million children “equipped with nuclear bombs” to “mercilessly wipe out” the USA. A terrifying statement from the communist country’s Kimilsungist-Kimjongilist Youth League says its members will “wipe out the enemies” with “invincible nuclear force”. The organization also vows to “annihilate all aggressors and provokers on the Earth and display fireworks of the final victory”. The Youth League dates back to 1946 when it was founded by Kim Il-Sung, North Korea’s supreme leader and grandfather of present-day leader Kim Jong-un. Kim Jong-un remains chairman of the Youth
League and the organisation is tasked with encouraging children over 15 into production, construction and military service.The Youth League said it is “the will of the Korean youths to resolutely and mercilessly wipe out the US imperialists and south Korean puppet warmongers”.The statement added: “Upon hearing the news that the US imperialists and south Korean puppet group of traitors are making desperate efforts to hurt the dignity of the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,

U.S. Commander warns America may need need stronger defense against North Korea missiles
APRIL 26, 2017
The United States may need to strengthen its missile defenses, particularly in Hawaii, given the advancing threat from North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons programs, the top U.S. commander in the Pacific told Congress on Wednesday. Just hours before the entire U.S. Senate was due to receive a top-level briefing on North Korea at the White House, Admiral Harry Harris testified that he believed Pyongyang’s threats against the United States needed to be taken seriously. Harris said the defenses of Hawaii were sufficient for now but could one day be overwhelmed, and suggested studying stationing new radar there as well as interceptors to knock out any incoming North Korean missiles.
“I don’t share your confidence that North Korea is not going to attack either South Korea, or Japan, or the United States … once they have the capability,” Harris told a lawmaker at one point. Asked about defenses of the continental United States, Harris deferred to other commanders but said: “I do believe that the numbers could be improved. In other words, we need more interceptors.” The testimony was the latest sobering reminder of growing U.S. alarm about North Korean capabilities. President Donald Trump has signaled willingness to use force, if needed, should diplomatic efforts fail to constrain Pyongyang.

Concerns grow regarding North Korean’s miniaturized nuclear weapons and submarine-launched ballistic missiles
APRIL 26, 2017
With all 100 U.S. senators invited to a rare briefing on White House grounds Wednesday on North Korea, it’s hard to overstate how concerned officials are about the technological advancements out of Pyongyang. While North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has a reputation for bizarre behavior, the nuclear arsenal and aspirations of the Republic are being taken seriously. North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests in the past 11 years, the last several being the most destructive –
and now they are threatening a sixth. North Korea’s official Rodong Sinmun newspaper also said in a front-page editorial that its military is prepared “to bring to closure the history of U.S. scheming and nuclear blackmail.” The editorial said, “There is no limit to the strike power of the People’s Army armed with our style of cutting-edge military equipment including various precision and miniaturized nuclear weapons and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.” It is that miniaturized nuclear weapon that is the biggest concern to the United States, and the rest of the world.

DEVELOPING: US Preparing to ‘EVACUATE 230,000 Americans from South Korea’
APRIL 26, 2017
Donald Trump has demanded the evacuation of US citizens from South Korea as part of a drill named Courageous Channel, military sources have revealed. The operation, set to take place in June, will prepare for the safe exit of around 230,000 Americans in the case of conflict. If the Pyongyang was to attack, tens of thousands of American civilians, including military dependents residing in and around the capital city of Seoul, could very well be caught in the crossfire.A major dilemma for the US is how to keep these Americans safe and evacuate them in the event of hostilities. Seoul is just 35 miles from the border, well within
range of more than 12,000 North Korean artillery guns that they have already positioned to strike from dug-in and well-camouflaged positions.According to reports, the reclusive state would activate sleeper agents in the South to direct missile and artillery fire. It is estimated that the North has the capability to fire, using rocket-assisted projectiles, 500,000 rounds of both mortar ammunition and chemical weapons on Seoul in just the first hour of war.

US missile shield aims to cover sudden nuclear strike against Russia
APRIL 27, 2017
The United States is pursuing global strategic domination through developing anti-ballistic missile systems capable of a sudden disarming strike against Russia and China, according to the deputy head of operations of the Russian General Staff. There is an obvious link between Washington’s prompt global strike initiative, which seeks capability to engage “any targets anywhere in the world within one hour of the decision,” and the deployment of missile launch systems in Europe and aboard naval vessels across the globe, Lt. Gen.
Viktor Poznikhir said at a news briefing on Wednesday. “The presence of US missile defense bases in Europe, missile defense vessels in seas and oceans close to Russia creates a powerful covert strike component for conducting a sudden nuclear missile strike against the Russian Federation,” Poznikhir explained. While the US keeps claiming that its missile defenses are seeking to mitigate threats from rogue states, the results of computer simulations confirm that the Pentagon’s installations are directed against Russia and China, according to Poznikhir.

FEDS Begin Nuclear Response Drills at MetLife Stadium in Northern New Jersey.
APRIL 26, 2017
Federal authorities are running nuclear response drills at MetLife Stadium in northern New Jersey. Homeland Security and FEMA are conducting Operation Gotham Shield. The purpose is to practice how to assess, treat and evacuate victims during a potential nuclear attack in the New York City area. The drills simulate a scenario in which a 10,000 ton improvised nuclear device goes off on the New Jersey side of the
Lincoln Tunnel. MetLife Stadium is serving as the primary response center during the multi-day drills. The stadium is in East Rutherford, about 15 minutes outside of Manhattan. The New Jersey and New York emergency management organizations are also taking part. The exercise is part of several that are taking place along the Northeast Corridor. Other drills are taking place in Washington, D.C. and Albany.

North Korea Prepares For War With ‘Largest Ever’ Live-Fire Artillery Drills
APRIL 26, 2017
Kim Jong-Un’s army readied for war as they fired rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships during North Korea‘s ‘largest ever’ live-fire artillery drills on Tuesday. Hundreds of tanks were lined up along the eastern coastal town of Wonsan in a show of military strength to celebrate 85 years since the North Korean army was created. Kim saluted the military as he watched the exercises on Tuesday, which involved the firing of more than 300 large-calibre artillery pieces and included submarine torpedo-attacks. Just one day later, South Korea conducted joint military live-fire drills with the US at Seungjin fire training field in
Pocheon, South Korea, near the border with North Korea. And in a defiant bit of timing, South Korea have announced that key parts of a contentious US missile defense system have been installed. The South’s trumpeting of progress in setting up the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, comes as high-powered US military assets converge on the Korean Peninsula and as a combative North Korea signals possible nuclear and missile testing. On the same day, a US guided-missile submarine docked in South Korea.

BREAKING NEWS: US test-fires ICBM traveling 4,000 miles to South Pacific
APRIL 26, 2017
The U.S. Air Force test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile which traveled over 4,000 miles before splashing down in the South Pacific after launching early Wednesday from a base in California. The nuclear-capable missile was unarmed, according to the Air Force, and comes amid increasing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The Minuteman III missile blasted off at 12:03 a.m. Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles. The test was long-planned, according to defense officials. When asked about the timing of the test amid the threats surrounding North Korea, one official told Fox News, VIDELO
“If we had canceled the launch, that would be a story too.” The U.S. Air Force has 450 Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles in underground silos across three bases in Wyoming, North Dakota and Montana. This number will be reduced to 400 in the coming years, according to a senior U.S. military official. The U.S. military also maintains a fleet of long range B-2 and B-52 bombers capable of delivering nuclear weapons as well as a fleet of ballistic missile submarines. Air Force fighter jets can carry smaller tactical nuclear weapons as well.

US and South Korea conduct powerful military drills amid rising tensions with North Korea


APRIL 26, 2017
The US and South Korean militaries have taken part in a combined firing drill as part of joint exercises amid increased tensions with Pyongyang. It comes just one day after the North launched its own artillery drill. More than 2,000 South Korean and American troops were involved in the Wednesday drills in Pocheon, South Korea, according to Yonhap news agency. The war games took place at Seungjin Fire Training Field, some 30km south of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) dividing the two Koreas. The exercises, which lasted 45 minutes, included some 100 artillery pieces, 90 armored vehicles and 50 aircraft, according to South
Korea’s Ministry of Defense. Footage from the scene shows trails of color streaked across the sky as fighter jets showcase their force, as well as firing tanks, huge clouds of smoke, and soldiers dropping out of helicopters. The exercises also included two AH-64E Apache Guardian attack helicopters from the South Korean Army, which fired aerial rockets and ammunitions from chain guns at mock targets, according to Yonhap.

UPDATE: US to launch Minuteman III ICBM As Warning to North Korea
APRIL 26, 2017
An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) will be launched from a US Air Force base in California Wednesday to ensure its “effectiveness, readiness and accuracy,” and demonstrate “national nuclear capabilities,” according to the US military. The Minuteman III missile test comes amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, with a carrier strike group led by the ‘USS Carl Vinson’ approaching North Korean waters. However, a spokeswoman for the Air Force Global Strike Command says the test was planned in advance and is not connected with the situation in North Korea, and the launches happen on regular basis,
according to the Washington Examiner. The launch is scheduled on Wednesday between 12:01am to 6:01am (07:01GMT to 13:01GMT) from North Vandenberg Air Force Base, according to the 30th Space Wing, which is conducting the test. “These Minuteman launches are essential to verify the status of our national nuclear force and to demonstrate our national nuclear capabilities,” the commander of the unit, Colonel John Moss, said in a statement. The test launch is aimed at validating and verifying “the effectiveness, readiness, and accuracy of the weapon system,” according to the Air Force Global Strike Command.

US Navy fires warning flare at Iran vessel…
APRIL 26, 2017
A U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer fired a warning flare toward an Iranian Revolutionary Guard vessel coming near it in the Persian Gulf, an American official said on Wednesday, the latest tense naval encounter between the two countries. The incident happened Monday as the vessel attempted to draw closer to the USS Mahan despite the destroyer trying to turn away from it, said Lt. Ian McConnaughey, a spokesman for the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet.

The “Mahan made several attempts to contact the Iranian vessel by bridge-to-bridge radio, issuing warning messages and twice sounding the internationally recognized danger signal of five short blasts with the ship’s whistle, as well as deploying a flare to determine the Iranian vessel’s intentions,” McConnaughey said in a statement to The Associated Press. The Iranian vessel came within 1,000 meters (1,100 yards) of the Mahan during the incident, the lieutenant said. The vessel later turned and sailed away.

WAR DRUMS: USS Michigan Nuclear Sub Heads to South Korea
APRIL 25, 2017
The USS Michigan — a guided-missile submarine — is expected to make a visible port call in South Korea on Tuesday, according to a US defense official. The official described the move as a show of force amid tensions between the US and North Korea. The US Navy submarine is expected to dock in the port city of Busan, South Korea, on the same day that North Korea celebrates the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army. A port call involves stopping at
a foreign port for supplies, repairs or transshipment of cargo. The USS Michigan’s stop in South Korea was first reported by South Korean newspaper Dong-A Ilbo. While the USS Michigan is not expected to take part in the joint exercises, its presence in the region is meant to send a strong message to Pyongyang. US President Donald Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo earlier this month that the US was sending an “armada” with submarines to the region.

Japan warns citizens only have 10 mins to prepare for missile…
APRIL 25, 2017
North Korea might be talking about building missiles that can reach the United States, but Kim Jong Un’s regime already has lots of missiles that can reach Japan. So the Japanese government is preparing its citizens to be ready in case a missile comes their way — something that could come with less than 10 minutes’ warning. The prime minister’s office issued new “actions to protect yourself” guidelines this week,
including for the first time instructions on how to respond if a North Korean ballistic missile is heading toward Japan. Three of the four missiles that North Korea launched March 6 fell within Japan’s exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan, the body of water that separates Japan and the Korean Peninsula. North Korea later said that it was practicing to hit U.S. military bases in Japan.

Russian Senator Warns UK risks being ‘wiped off the map with nuclear counterstrike’
APRIL 25, 2017
The UK, which recently said it could launch a preemptive nuclear strike “in the most extreme circumstances,” runs the risk of being “wiped off the face of the Earth,” the deputy head of a Russian upper house committee said. “The statement made by UK’s Defense Minister Michael Fallon calls for a harsh response and I’m not afraid of going too far. At best this statement may be seen as an element of a psychological war, which looks especially revolting in this context,” Frants Klintsevich wrote on Facebook.
“There is a quite natural question then: what country could be primitively targeted by the UK?” the deputy head of the Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security said. In case the UK strikes a nuclear power, then “the UK, which doesn’t have vast territory, will be literally wiped off from the face of the earth with a counterstrike,” Klintsevich said. In the event of targeting a non-nuclear country, this will remind of the US nuclear attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he added. READ MORE https://www.rt.com/news/386093-uk-nuclear-strike-russia/

BREAKING NEWS: Turkish Jets Bomb US-backed forces in Iraq and Syria
APRIL 25, 2017
More than a dozen U.S.-backed Syrian and Iraqi Kurdish fighters were killed in a series of airstrikes carried out by Turkish jets, two American defense officials confirmed to Fox News. Both officials said there were no U.S. troops among the fighters who were hit. “This is very serious,” said one outraged U.S. official. Earlier this month, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis hosted his Turkish counterpart,
FOX NEWS VIDEO
Fikri Isik, at the Pentagon for talks about the upcoming Raqqa offensive in Syria. Both secretaries ignored a question from a reporter about the role Kurds would play in that operation. There are currently about 1,000 U.S. troops on the ground in Syria. In March, 400 Marines deployed to Syria as part of an artillery battery to support U.S.-backed troops fighting around Raqqa. The U.S. Air Force uses a Turkish airbase near the border with Syria to conduct strikes against ISIS.

Air Force to launch test missile off California coast…
APRIL 25, 2017
An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile will be launched Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base to test the weapon’s effectiveness, accuracy and readiness, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command. The Minuteman III missile test launch will occur between 12:01 and 6:01 a.m. from the north end of the base near Lompoc, according to Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing.

The 576th Flight Test Squadron, which will help oversee the operational test launch, is responsible for telemetry, tracking and command destruct systems on the missile. In a statement, Col. Chris Moss, Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing commander, said missile launches are “essential to verify the status of our national nuclear force and to demonstrate our national nuclear capabilities.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Conflict With North Korea Inevitable Warns British Admiral
APRIL 23, 2017
Kim Jong-un’s campaign to develop a nuclear missile to strike the East Coast of the US is driving the two powers towards an inevitable conflict, warned Admiral Lord West. The former First Sea Lord chillingly predicted there is a “real” risk the US will be left with no choice but to launch a “massive strike” against North Korea. He said it was “inconceivable” any US President – whether it was Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton – would allow “barking mad” Kim to obtain a nuclear ICBM.
Admiral West told Daily Star Online: “The consequences will be catastrophic and it really worries me. “I don’t believe any American president will allow Kim Jong-un to be in a position to say ‘you give me some more food and stop these sanctions, otherwise I am going to destroy San Francisco’.” The Falklands war veteran previously warned the world is at highest risk of nuclear strike in “decades” as conflicts flare in the Pacific, the Middle East and between Russia and the US.

DEVELOPING: North Korea has arrested and detained 3rd US citizen.
APRIL 23, 2017
A third US citizen has been arrested and remains in custody in North Korea, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap. A Korean-American professor in his 50s, identified by the surname Kim, was detained at Pyongyang International Airport just as he was leaving North Korea, the agency said, citing unidentified sources. The academic, who used to work at the Yanbian University of Science and Technology, was working on aid and relief programs for the country and had spent a month in North Korea to discuss those plans in further detail. 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. If the report is confirmed, the professor will become the third US citizen to have been detained that remains in custody in North Korea. More than 10 US citizens have been detained in North Korea since 2009, but only two still remain under arrest there – a college student named Otto Warmbier and a Korean-American pastor named Kim Dong-chul.

North Korea threatens to sink US aircraft carrier with a ‘single strike’
APRIL 23, 2017
North Korea has vowed to sink the USS Carl Vinson, which is scheduled to arrive in the waters around the Korean peninsula “within days.” Meanwhile, Japan said two of its ships have joined the aircraft carrier group for a “joint exercise.” “Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a US nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,”
according to Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, as cited by Reuters. The newspaper reportedly called the vessel a “gross animal,” while saying that sinking it would be “an actual example to show our military’s force.” The aircraft carrier group should arrive in waters along the Korean Peninsula “within days,” US Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday, without giving any specific details.

North Korean Media Issues Threat to ‘Wipe Out’ US
APRIL 25, 2017
An official North Korean website warned Monday that Pyongyang will “wipe out” the United States if Washington starts a war on the peninsula, the latest tit-for-tat sabre-rattling that has sent tensions soaring in the region. The US supercarrier Carl Vinson will arrive in waters off the Korean peninsula “in a matter of days”, Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday, amid reports the North could be preparing a sixth nuclear test.
Pyongyang is still believed to be far from reaching its aim of building a missile capable of reaching the US mainland, but the secretive nation has ramped up its rhetoric in recent weeks and has carried out two rocket tests this month alone. In a series of editorials the Rodong Sinmun newspaper — the official mouthpiece of the ruling Workers’ Party — said the North’s forces were undeterred and called the US strike group’s imminent arrival “undisguised military blackmail”.

China Now Urging Restraint From America Over Tensions with North Korea
APRIL 25, 2017
As the world braces for a possible North Korean nuclear test, Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday urged restraint in a call to President Donald Trump. America’s U.N. envoy warned of a strike if Pyongyang attacks a U.S. military base or tests an intercontinental ballistic missile. Xi’s phone call with Trump came amid signs Pyongyang could soon conduct its sixth nuclear test explosion since 2006, or the latest in a rapid series of missile tests, further advancing its ambitions of
developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the U.S. mainland. In Washington, the Trump administration invited the entire 100-member Senate for a briefing Wednesday on the escalating crisis. Adding to the atmosphere of animosity, officials said North Korea has detained a third U.S. citizen. Trump told ambassadors from U.N. Security Council members that the status quo in North Korea is “unacceptable” and the council must be prepared to impose additional and stronger sanctions.

Washington D.C. To Hold Massive “Coordinated Terror Attack” Drill This Wednesday
APRIL 25, 2017
April 26th is shaping up to be a busy day. As we reported on Friday, that’s when Operation Gotham Shield, an exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies and which simulates a nuclear bomb blast over Manhattan, is set to conclude. Then, as we learned earlier, April 26 is also when the entire Senate will be briefed by Donald Trump and his four top defense and military officials on the situation in North Korea at the White House, an event which Reuters dubbed as “unusual.”
April 26 is also when the USS Carl Vinson is expected to finally arrive off the coast of the Korean Penninsula. Now, in a statement from the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, the regional association reports that “law enforcement officials and other first responders will participate in a full-scale exercise on April 26 designed to prepare for the possibility of a complex coordinated terror attack in the National Capital Region.”

Russia building ‘world’s largest aircraft carrier’ to take on the US
APRIL 24, 2017
Russia has announced plans to build ‘the world’s biggest aircraft carrier’ to take on America’s Nimitz class ships. The new Shtorm craft, known as Project 23E000E, could cost up to $17.5billion each and enter service by 2030, state media reports. Shtorm class carries would be powered by nuclear reactors and carry up to 90 aircraft, including the newly designed T-50, the report claims. Despite the Kremlin’s claim that the new carrier will be the world’s biggest, its
specifications appear similar to the current US Nimitz class ships. Professor Vadim Kozyulin, an expert quoted by Russian media, admits that the ship will be based on the design for new American carrier USS Gerald R Ford. ‘It will be a floating airport that is accompanied by an entire squadron of ships,’ Mr Kozyulin said. The new craft will feature a deck the size of three football fields, house 4,000 crew and need specially designed docks to fit inside.

China Urges Restraint From North Korea
APRIL 24, 2017
Chinese President Xi Jinping called for all sides to exercise restraint on Monday in a telephone call about North Korea with U.S. President Donald Trump, as Japan conducted exercises with a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group headed for Korean waters. Trump sent the carrier group for exercises in waters off the Korean peninsula as a warning, amid growing fears North Korea could conduct another nuclear test in defiance of United Nations sanctions.
Angered by the approach of the USS Carl Vinson carrier group, a defiant North Korea said on Monday the deployment was “an extremely dangerous act by those who plan a nuclear war to invade”. “The United States should not run amok and should consider carefully any catastrophic consequence from its foolish military provocative act,” Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, said in a commentary on Monday.

How the Turkish Referendum Fits Into End-Times Prophecies
APRIL 24, 2017
Is the Turkish Referendum a deal with the devil and a major sign of the end times? Perhaps, according to sources on the ground, as the referendum changes the constitutional powers of the president, Tayyip Erdogan. The BBC reports the following major changes:
The role of prime minister will be scrapped. The new post of vice president, possibly two or three, will be created.
The president becomes the head of the executive, as well as the head of state, and retains ties to a political party.
He or she will be given sweeping new powers to appoint ministers, prepare the budget, choose the majority of senior judges and enact certain laws by decree.
The president alone will be able to announce a state of emergency and dismiss Parliament.
Parliament will lose its right to scrutinize ministers or propose an inquiry. However, it will be able to begin impeachment proceedings or investigate the president with a majority vote by MPs. Putting the president on trial would require a two-thirds majority.

31% of Americans view Russia as ‘greatest danger’ to US, highest rate in 3 decades
APRIL 24, 2017
Answering an open-ended question, 31 percent of Americans said Russia currently represents the “greatest danger” to the US, according to a new poll. It is the highest percentage of Americans expressing this sentiment in nearly three decades. The new Pew Research Center survey also found that Russia is by far the number one national threat in the eyes of Democrats, as 39 percent see Russia as the greatest threat to America, while 21 percent cited North Korea, and 13 percent said it was China.
Opinions were divided among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, with 27 percent saying North Korea presently poses the greatest danger to the US; 21 percent cited Russia, and 18 percent – Iran. Compared with 2013, the last time the same question was asked, larger numbers in both parties cited Russia as posing the greatest danger to the US. Almost twice as many Democrats as Republicans now express a more hostile attitude (39 percent vs. 21 percent). READ MORE https://www.rt.com/usa/385903-americans-russia-danger-poll/


Japan Sees Spike In Nuclear Shelters and Purifiers as North Korea Tension Mounts
APRIL 24, 2017
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. A purifier designed for six people sells for 620,000 yen ($5,630) and one designed for 13 people and usually installed in a family-use shelter costs 1.7 million yen ($15,440).

What This Rabbi Predicted 22 Years Ago About Korea’s Role In the End-Time Will Shock You
APRIL 24, 2017
North Korea has only recently emerged as a major threat to the Western world, but a noted kabbalist predicted 22 years ago that the rogue nation would become the nuclear key to the final war of Gog and Magog. Now that politics have shifted, revealing the prophetic nature of the rabbi’s words, another look reveals a deeper, Biblical understanding of the threat that faces us today. When Rabbi Levi Sa’adia Nachamanii gave a speech in 1994, one month before he died, he surprisingly warned that of all the threats to Israel, North Korea posed the most danger.
“Not Syria, not Persia (Iran), and not Babylon (Iraq), and not Gaddafi (Libya),” the rabbi said, naming Israel’s greatest threats at the time. “Korea will arrive here.”Rabbi Nachmani’s prediction was shocking for many reasons. He had accurately predicted the Six Day War in 1967 and the Yom Kippur War in 1973, giving credence to his prediction, but it was inconceivable that the threats he mentioned, all posing the greatest dangers to Israel at the time, would vanish. As time has shown, that is precisely what has happened since the rabbi made his speech.

North Korea Threatens Australia With Nuclear Strike For Siding With America
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea has warned Australia of a possible nuclear strike if it continues to “blindly and zealously toe the US line.” It comes after Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Pyongyang poses a “serious threat” to peace and stability in the region. “If Australia persists in following the US moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the US master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK,” a
spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry said, as quoted by the official KCNA news agency. The threat comes after Bishop said earlier this week that North Korea is on a “path to achieving nuclear weapons capability,” posing an “unacceptable” risk to the region. She added that its efforts must be stopped by the international community. Those comments were not taken well by North Korea, with the spokesman referring to them as a “string of rubbish.”

North Korea Warns China of “Catastrophic Consequences” If They Stand With America
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea has apparently 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. 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. “Not a single word about the U.S. act of pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war after introducing hugest-ever strategic assets into the waters off the Korean peninsula is made but such rhetoric as ‘necessary step’ and ‘reaction at decisive level’ is openly heard from a country around the DPRK to intimidate it over its measures for self-defense,” the commentary’s introduction in English read.

North Korea Warns Arsenal of Nuke Missiles May Reach California
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea has threatened the US with ‘full out war’ as it’s claimed Kim Jong-un may have the technology to hit California with a nuclear missile.Today’s worrying ‘war’ statement comes as the US supercarrier Carl Vinson heads back to the Korean Peninsula, which is already on a war footing. The statement from North Korea’s Foreign Ministry reads: “The state of affairs on the Korean peninsula and the region are extremely perilous because of madcap American nuclear war maneuvers aimed at trampling on our sovereignty and right to survival.
“Now that we possess a mighty nuclear power to protect ourselves from US nuclear threat, we will respond without the slightest hesitation to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of a nuclear strike, and we will emerge victor in the final battle with the United States.” The threat comes as an expert has told how photographs from a recent North Korean military parade show the regime is closing in on having a nuke capable of hitting the US mainland.

DEVELOPING: North Korea May Perform Next Nuclear Test This Week!
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea appears to have resumed work at its nuclear test site after a perplexing series of volleyball matches were held there, according to analysts who studied satellite images of the site, renewing concerns that a major weapons test could be imminent. Many observers had feared that North Korea would test a nuclear device at the site around April 15, the birthday of Kim Il-sung, the North’s founding president and the grandfather of the current leader, Kim Jong-un. But
Mr. Kim’s government celebrated the day instead with a military parade in Pyongyang, the capital, during which a fleet of missiles were rolled out, including what analysts believed were never-before-seen long-range ballistic missiles. North Korea carried out a missile test on Sunday, but it was considered an embarrassing failure, with the projectile exploding immediately after liftoff. But North Korea is preparing to celebrate another major holiday this coming week: Tuesday will be the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, and the North often uses such occasions to show off its military advances.

NK warns of wiping America off face of the Earth – Accuses US of plotting chemical weapons attack
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea has warned it will wipe America “off the face of the Earth” after accusing the US of planning a chemical weapons attack. In an explosive new report published today, the secretive country has claimed the US is plotting an ‘unprecedented disaster’ on its nation. However, the country says it will not remain a ‘passive onlooker’ – instead vowing to destroy the US, or ’empire of evils’, in a catastrophic retaliation.
State newspaper The Rodong Sinmun says: “The DPRK will never remain a passive onlooker to the moves of the U.S. to provoke a biochemical war against it but will conclude the standoff with the U.S., the empire of evils, by wiping it off the face of the Earth. “The U.S. must not disregard the warning of the DPRK that its reckless military moves would lead to its most miserable final doom.” The report, entitled ‘U.S. Biochemical War Plan against Korean Nation under Fire’, claimed the US is plotting a chemical weapons attack on the country.

UPDATE: Multiple Cities Hit With Simultaneous Power Grid Failures…
APRIL 22, 2017
The U.S. power grid appears to have been hit with multiple power outages affecting San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. Officials report that business, traffic and day-to-day life has come to a standstill in San Francisco, reportedly the worst hit of the three major cities currently experiencing outages. Power companies in all three regions have yet to elaborate on the cause, though a fire at a substation was the original reason given by San Francisco officials.
A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence. The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.

WAR DRUMS: Japanese destroyers join US strike group amid tensions on Korean Peninsula
APRIL 21, 2017
Two Japanese Navy destroyers have joined the carrier strike group ‘USS Carl Vinson’ heading towards the Korean Peninsula for a massive show of force as North Korea prepares to mark the 85th anniversary of the foundation of its military. The Japanese warships, destroyers ‘Ashigara’ and ‘Samidare’, left the navy’s Sasebo base early on Friday for a rendezvous with the ‘USS Carl Vinson’ group off North Korean shores, NHK reports. Defense Ministry officials said the
details of the joint US-Japan naval exercise are yet to be determined. The drill comes as an apparent show of force aimed at deterring North Korea, which will mark the 85th anniversary of the foundation of its military next week. Though little is known about the naval exercise, the event was announced by the Japanese Navy earlier last week. “Japan wants to dispatch several destroyers as the ‘Carl Vinson’ enters the East China Sea,” said one of the Japanese military sources, as cited by Reuters.

Feds To Perform Nuke Drill In Manhattan, NY From April 18th thru May 5th
APRIL 21, 2017
On April 18th thru May 5th, 2017, state, local, and federal organizations alike are planning for Operation Gotham Shield 2017 — a major nuclear detonation drill in the New York-New Jersey area, along with the U.S.-Canadian border. During this exercise, 4 nuclear devices, 2 of which are rendered “safe” during the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Vital Archer Exercise, and one successful 10kt detonation in the NYC/NJ area, along with one smaller detonation on the U.S./Canadian border are to take place.
The following document comes form The Nevada National Security Service. Their primary role with the government is to help ensure the security of the United States and its allies by supporting the stewardship of the nuclear deterrent, providing emergency response capability and training, and contributing to key nonproliferation and arms control initiatives.

Russia flexes muscle From Alaska to Japan…
APRIL 21, 2017
US defense officials are calling recent sightings of Russian bombers off the Alaskan coast “nothing out of the ordinary” — itself an indication that both nations are toeing the line between routine military posturing and escalating provocation. On Monday, US F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian bombers in international airspace 100 miles from Kodiak Island, Alaska. A US military official called the interaction “safe and professional.” Less than 24 hours later, a US
surveillance aircraft responded to two Russian bombers that were spotted in the same area, this time flying 41 miles off Alaska. The Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace in either instance and US defense officials say there was nothing unusual or confrontational about the Russians’ conduct. The US itself has carried out similar flights along both the Chinese and Russian coasts. Moscow, for its part, said it “regularly carries out patrol missions above the neutral waters of the Arctic, the Atlantic, the Black Sea and the Pacific Ocean.”

US nuclear submarine seen crossing the Panama Canal
APRIL 21, 2017
A US nuclear submarine transited the Panama Canal in the early hours of Monday, April 17, according to the Panama Canal Authority. The ship was transported from north to south at 8:00 am and during its transit was escorted by a patrol boat of the National Aeronaval Service (Senan), as established by the navigation protocol for this type of vessel.
The ACP has also reported that between 3 and 4 submarines that can be from any country, as it is a maritime route that is open to the maritime world, transits through the waters of the Panama Canal. On the deck of the submarine were also agents of the Senan and US military, during transit, as also established protocols.

South Korea on heightened alert as North readies for army celebration
APRIL 21, 2017
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. U.S. officials said there was a higher-than-usual level of activity by Chinese bombers, signaling a possible heightened state of readiness by Beijing, reclusive North Korea’s sole major ally, although the officials played down
concern and left open a range of possible reasons. In Russia, a Kremlin spokesman declined to comment on media reports that Russia was moving military hardware and troops toward the border with North Korea, the RIA news agency quoted him as saying. U.S. and South Korean officials have been saying for weeks that the North could soon stage another nuclear test in violation of United Nations sanctions, something both the United States and China have warned against.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel May Need to Prepare for Another War With Hamas This Summer
APRIL 21, 2017
Israel Construction and Housing Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday morning, April 16, 2017, said there will be no choice other than to enter another war with Hamas. He warned Israelis to prepare for such a conflict during the coming summer. Why does the Hamas terrorist organization, which rules the Gaza Strip, keep engaging Israel in hopeless wars every few years? Part of the answer perhaps lies in the word hudna.
It is an Arabic expression often translated as “cease-fire”, which has little to do with establishing peace with one’s neighbor. Historically it was a strategy which allowed the party declaring the hudna to regroup and rearm, while the enemy was off guard. The term comes from the story of the Muslim conquest of Mecca. Unable to carry off an immediate victory, Muhammad made a 10-year treaty with the Kuraysh tribe.

North Korea Warns China of “Catastrophic Consequences” If They Stand With America
APRIL 22, 2017
North Korea has apparently 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. 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. “Not a single word about the U.S. act of pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a war after introducing hugest-ever strategic assets into the waters off the Korean peninsula is made but such rhetoric as ‘necessary step’ and ‘reaction at decisive level’ is openly heard from a country around the DPRK to intimidate it over its measures for self-defense,” the commentary’s introduction in English read.

China may cut crude oil to North Korea to Prevent Further Nuclear Tests
APRIL 20, 2017
China likely will halt crude oil exports to North Korea should Pyongyang conduct its sixth nuclear test, a prominent Chinese expert told The Nikkei, signaling a tougher attitude by Beijing toward its rogue neighbor. A nuclear test or the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles would violate United Nations Security Council resolutions, and China is certain to respond with additional sanctions, said Zhang Liangui, a professor at the Chinese Communist Party’s Central

Party School and noted authority on North Korea. The option to cut off the North’s crude supply will be put on the table, Zhang said, while stressing that the Chinese government will ultimately decide its course of action. 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.

Risk of ‘Accidental’ Nuclear War Growing
APRIL 20, 2017
The warning comes as the Pentagon begins an extensive review of its nuclear arsenal. On Sept., 26, 1983, shortly after midnight, the Soviet Oko nuclear early warning system detected five missiles launched from the United States and headed toward Moscow. Stanislav Petrov, a young lieutenant colonel in the Soviet Air Defense Force, was the duty in the Serpukhov-15 bunker that housed the Oko command center. Petrov was the man in charge of alerting the soviets about a nuclear attack, which would trigger a retaliatory strike. He determined that the Oko had likely malfunctioned and the
alarm was false. The Americans would not start World War III with a quintet of missiles (risking total annihilation.) It was a daring judgment call. He was, of course, right. As the U.S. prepares to undertake a new nuclear posture review to determine the future direction of the nation’s nuclear weapons, a report from a United Nations research institute warns that the risks of a catastrophic error — like the one that took place that early morning in 1983 — are growing, not shrinking.

China Places Bombers on ‘High Alert’
APRIL 20, 2017
The US is seeing evidence that the Chinese military is preparing for a potential North Korea contingency, a US defense official told CNN Thursday. Chinese air force land-attack, cruise-missile-capable bombers were put “on high alert” on Wednesday, the official said, adding that the US has also seen an extraordinary number of Chinese military aircraft being brought up to full readiness through intensified maintenance. The official said that these recent steps by the Chinese are assessed as part of an effort to
“reduce the time to react to a North Korea contingency.” Such a contingency could include the risk of an armed conflict breaking out as tensions on the peninsula have risen in the wake of multiple North Korean missile tests. There has also been ratcheted up rhetoric from the US and Pyongyang, with the latter’s state media warning Thursday that a pre-emptive strike by North Korea would result in the US and South Korea being “completely destroyed in an instant.”

Nuclear Sniffer Plane From America Lands in Japan
APRIL 20, 2017
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.
It arrived at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, early this month amid indications that the North is preparing for another nuclear test. Thursday’s flight appears meant to check whether the secretive communist nation has detonated a nuclear bomb. It also tests operational readiness in the event of an actual provocation by the North, added the source. There was an unconfirmed rumor that North Korea has notified China of its nuclear experiment plan.

This 15-Ton Weapon Could Destroy Kim Jong Un’s Underground Nuke Sites
APRIL 20, 2017
Donald Trump may use a non-nuclear bomb which is BIGGER than the MOAB unleashed on ISIS to destroy Kim Jung-un’s underground nuclear sites. The Massive Ordnance Penetrator, or MOP, is a ‘bunker busting’ explosive and the largest non-nuclear bomb which the US has at its disposal. The 15 ton bomb was developed in 2004 and is designed to
obliterate the deepest of underground facilities used by the likes of North Korea and Iran, reports The Daily Beast.In
2013, the MOP was redesigned to give it the added power needed to burst through the most hardened of underground sites, reports The Wall Street Journal. And while test footage has never been made public, US officials confirmed the redesign was successful.Two of the colossal 21-foot-long explosives can be carried on the US Air Force’s 20 B-2 stealth bombers which are kept at an air base in Missouri.

Russia Holds the “Father of All Bombs” in it’s Arsenal.
By Ricky Scaparo on Apr 20, 2017 10:02 am
APRIL 20, 2017
Born in Russia in 2007, the “father of all bombs” may be holding a title surpassed by no other. The Russian military says it’s the most powerful thermobaric bomb of its kind, four times more powerful than the American “mother of all bombs,” the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US arsenal and the largest non-nuclear bomb the United States has ever used in combat.
Based on the specifications the Russian military has released, analysts say Russia could be right. “We believe it’s real,” said retired Col. Rick Francona, military analyst and former US military attache in Syria. “The Russians have been among the pioneers of these thermobaric bombs.””I don’t have any doubt that they could build this,” Francona said. “It falls under their technological capabilities.”

Israel Warns Assad’s Forces Still Have Chemical Weapons


APRIL 20, 2017
Israel’s military said on Wednesday it believes Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces still possess several tonnes of chemical weapons, issuing the assessment two weeks after a chemical attack that killed nearly 90 people in Syria. Israel, along with many countries, blames the strike on Assad’s military. French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said French intelligence services would provide proof of that in the coming days.
A senior Israeli military officer, in a briefing to Israeli reporters, said “a few tonnes of chemical weapons” remained in the hands of Assad’s forces, a military official told Reuters. Some local media reports quoted the briefing officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with Israeli military procedure, as putting the amount at up to 3 tonnes. In a 2013 agreement brokered by Russia and the United States, Syria agreed to destroy its chemical weapons.

Trump’s ‘armada’ turns toward North Korea as White House defends misleading remarks
APRIL 20, 2017
The White House stood by President Donald Trump’s recent talk of a Navy strike force on its way to the Korean peninsula after the USS Carl Vinson was spotted thousands of miles away, headed in the opposite direction. The fleet has since turned around. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer denied that Trump misled the public about the location of the USS Carl Vinson strike force, which he said was heading to North Korea during an interview with Fox News earlier this month.
“We have submarines. Very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you,” Trump told Maria Bartiromo in a pre-taped interview that aired April 12. Several tweets from Trump at the time also signaled that rising tensions were leading to the US taking action against North Korea over the country’s nuclear program. On April 11, Spicer confirmed that the Vinson strike force was “steaming out toward the Sea of Japan” to give the president “options in the region.”

Russia mobilizing troops, helicopters and armoured vehicles to border with N.K as Putin braces for war
APRIL 20, 2017
Russia’s president Vladimir Putin is reinforcing his border with North Korea by relocating troops and equipment, according to reports. The move comes as Donald Trump’s naval armada prepares to head to the Korean Peninsula. Video footage is said to show one of three trains loaded with military equipment moving towards the 11 mile-long land frontier between Russia and the repressive state. Another scene shows military helicopter appearing to move towards the North Korean border and maneuvers across rough terrain by army combat vehicles.
Other reports suggest there have been military moves by road as well. There have been concerns that if a conflict breaks out Russia could face a humanitarian exodus from North Korea. But Putin has been warned, too, that in the event of a US strike on Kim Jong-un’s nuclear facilities, contamination could swiftly reach Russia. “Railway trains loaded with military equipment moving towards Primorsky region via Khabarovsk have been noticed by locals,” reported primemedia.ru in the Russian far East – linking the development to the North Korean crisis.

RUMORS OF WAR: North Korea threatens to turn US to ashes with preemptive strike
APRIL 20, 2017
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has warned the US he is ready to launch a “super-mighty preemptive strike”. State media launched the broadside as the ongoing war of words between Pyongyang and Washington DC continued. The announcement ominously warned the regime would “reduce America to ashes” and added: “Don’t mess with us.” But US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to tone down America’s stance and said it is looking for ways to “bring pressure on the regime” to “re-engage”. The latest insults come just one day after footage emerged of a bizarre North Korean musical in which an American city destroyed by North Korean nukes.

A symphony orchestra played as one of Kim’s missiles hurtled into the US and revealed a smoldering Stars and Stripes flag. Military figures watched on gleefully as uniformed troops from the Korean State Merited Chorus belted out a series of tuneless numbers. And in a verse unlikely to make its way onto Broadway anytime soon, one warbled: “Our proud Hwasong rocket blasts off” and “it flies as quickly as a flash of lightning to challenge imperialism”.

BREAKING NEWS: US Marines Deployed to Australia amid North Korean ‘Nuclear Threat’
APRIL 18, 2017
US Marines have begun to touch down in Darwin, in Australia’s tropical north, as the first of some 1,250 “stand ready to fight” against North Korea amid warnings that Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program is a “serious threat” to Canberra. The deployment will see the largest US aircraft contingent to Australia in peacetime history, Reuters reports, adding that the 25-year annual deployment program was launched by former US President Barack Obama back in 2011 as part of America’s ‘pivot’ to Asia. During the six-month deployment, US Marines will conduct exercises with Australian troops and will also visit Chinese forces.
The US Marines’ arrival comes as Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop voiced mounting concerns over North Korea’s nuclear activities. Pyongyang is striving for nuclear weapons and “has a clear ambition to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear payload as far as the US,” Bishop said according to the ABC. “That would mean Australia would be in reach so unless it is prevented from doing so, it will be a serious threat to the peace and stability of our region, and that is unacceptable,” she added.

North Korea has managed to build a massive military stockpile
APRIL 19, 2017
From the outside North Korea looks like an impoverished state cut off from the rest of the world. But during its weekend procession, the isolated regime managed to put on an impressive display of its rockets and military strength, in defiance of growing American warnings about its military capability. While many have the impression of North Korea being a poor country that can’t feed its own people, Leonid Petrov told news.com.au that it had large stockpiles of natural resources that it used to fund its weapons research.
“North Korea is a mountainous country that has huge natural resources including deposits of high quality coal, gold, silver, uranium, iron ore and rare earth metals,” said Dr Petrov, a visiting fellow at the Australian National University College of Asia and the Pacific. He said North Korea had exported its minerals to allies such as China and the Soviet Union for decades until the collapse of the communist bloc.

Russia claims ‘electronic bomb’ can wipe out entire US Navy…
APRIL 19, 2017
Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming. A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless. The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can
detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.” The news report claims a single Russian warplane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless. The report also claims they are capable to creating electronic jamming domes over their bases that make them invisible on radar screens.

Will Nuclear Deterrent Keep North Korea EMP Threat At Bay?
APRIL 17, 2017
WND has been reporting on the threat to America from EMP, the electromagnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion high in the sky, since early in the 2000s when former CIA chief James Wooley, former Defense Department staffer F. Michael Maloof and former Congressional EMP Commission member Dr. Peter Vincent Pry were sounding the alarm. It was only weeks later that North Korea as a possible aggressor was brought into the conversation.
Nothing has gotten better since then, according to Pry, who agreed to an interview with WND on Friday, and in fact, it’s worse. In fact, the sabre-rattling from North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un in recent days and weeks, the threats to destroy America, the warnings about “nuclear thunderbolts,” and more, should be taken very seriously, he suggested.

South Korea and US Hold Joint Military Exercise
APRIL 17, 2017
Around 1,000 U.S. airmen and fighter jets have teamed up with South Korea’s Air Force in a joint combat training to ensure their readiness against North Korea’s provocations, the Pacific Command (PACOM) announced Monday. The two-week Max Thunder exercise, one of the largest military flying exercises held annually in South Korea, is scheduled to run though April 28 at Kunsan Air Base in the southwest of the peninsula. It involves various types of American aircraft,
including F-16s from the 7th Air Force, AV-8Bs from the 12th Marine Aircraft Group and EA-18Gs from the Electronic Attack Squadron 132, all of which are based in South Korea and Japan, according to PACOM. South Korea has dispatched roughly 500 personnel in support of the F-15K, F-16, F-5E and F-4E fighters, as well as other Air Force planes in operation.

Defected General claims Assad obtains hundreds of tons of chemical weapons
APRIL 17, 2017
Syrian President Bashar Assad still possesses hundreds of tons of chemical agents which he hid from the international community, a former Syrian general who specialized in chemical warfare told the Telegraph Friday. Brig. Gen. Zaher al-Sakat, who defected from Assad’s forces in 2013 and currently resides in an undisclosed European country, told the newspaper the Syrian leader had deceived United Nations inspectors sent into the country to destroy his chemical stockpiles.
Assad had agreed to turn in his entire chemical weapons inventory in 2013 when the US threatened military action after hundreds were killed in a deadly chemical attack on opposition-held suburbs of Damascus. But Sakat, who was head of chemical warfare in the Syrian army’s Fifth Division, has long claimed that Assad secretly held on to much of his stash. And after an April 4 suspected chemical attack killed at least 87 people, the defector has said the regime still has hundreds of tons of chemicals at hand.

U.S. Army exploring ‘devastating’ new weapon
APRIL 17, 2017
Were the United States to go to war with Russia, both sides could draw on deadly weapons that the world has never seen on a battlefield. On the Russian side, there are new and smaller tactical nuclear weapons. To counter them, the U.S. Army is taking another look at a “devastating” weapon, one first tested by the Air Force and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2013, the Kinetic Energy Projectile, or KEP, a tungsten-based charge moving at three times the speed of sound that can destroy anything in its path.
“Think of it as a big shotgun shell,” Maj. Gen. William Hix, the Army’s director of strategy, plans & policy, said a few weeks ago at the Booz Allen Hamilton Direct Energy Summit. But unlike a shotgun shell, Hix said, the KEP moves at incredible speeds of “Mach 3 to Mach 6.” Randy Simpson, a weapons programs manager at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, explains that kinetic energy projectiles are warheads that “take advantage of high terminal speeds to deliver much more energy onto a target than the chemical explosives they carry would deliver alone.”

Has Trump found religion in the Oval Office?
APRIL 17, 2017
President Donald Trump has increasingly infused references to God into his prepared remarks — calling on God to bless all the world after launching strikes in Syria, asking God to bless the newest Supreme Court justice, invoking the Lord to argue in favor of a war on opioids. He’s also taken other steps to further cultivate a Christian right that helped elect him,
granting new levels of access to Christian media and pushing socially conservative positions that don’t appear to come naturally to him. One of the first interviews Trump sat for as president was with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody. “I’ve always felt the need to pray,” Trump said in that late-January interview. “The office is so powerful that you need God even more because your decisions are no longer, ‘Gee I’m going to build a building in New York.’ … These are questions of massive, life-and-death.”

Why Turkey May Be on Collision Course With Europe
APRIL 16, 2017
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s victory in Sunday’s referendum could pave the way for pragmatic cooperation with the U.S. while setting him on a collision course with Europe, officials said. Mr. Erdogan on Sunday night declared victory, while his opposition vowed to challenge the results. Voters narrowly approved constitutional amendments that will vastly expand Mr. Erdogan’s power, giving him license to politically transform a North Atlantic Treaty Organization

DEVELOPING: Hawaii Preparing Plans for responding to North Korea Attack
APRIL 16, 2017
Hawaii lawmakers want state officials to update plans for coping with a nuclear attack as North Korea develops nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that can reach the islands. 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.

DEVELOPING: China and Russia send ships after U.S. aircraft carrier
APRIL 16, 2017
China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun. It appears that both countries aim to probe the movements of the United States, which is showing a stance of not excluding military action against North Korea.

The Self-Defense Forces are strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area, according to the sources. The aircraft carrier strike group, composed of the Carl Vinson at its core with guided-missile destroyers and other vessels, is understood to be around the East China Sea and heading north toward waters near the Korean Peninsula.

Trump Warns North Korea Threats Cannot Continue!
APRIL 16, 2017
The US and China are working on a response to the North Korean missile crisis, Donald Trump’s top security adviser has said. General HR McMaster said China had joined an international consensus that Kim Jong-un’s “threatening behavior” could not continue. The countries are working on a “range of options” in response to a failed missile test by the regime and growing tensions over its nuclear program.
Trump has urged Beijing to use its influence as North Korea’s biggest ally to resolve the crisis. The president said today that China was “working with us on the North Korean problem”. The test rocket “blew up almost immediately” after its launch from a base in Sinpo early today, the US military said. The former foreign secretary Sir Malcolm…

United States F-35 fighter jets arrive in Europe for the first time
APRIL 16, 2017
A fleet of F-35 stealth fighter jets has arrived in Europe from the United States as part of a planned NATO exercise aimed at “deterring” Russia. The F-35A Lightning II jets landed at Royal Air Force Base in Lakenheath, England Saturday, having made the journey from Hill Air Force Base, Utah. “The forward presence of F-35s support my priority of having ready and postured forces here in Europe,” said NATO’s supreme allied commander for Europe General Curtis M. Scaparrotti in an official statement.
“These aircraft, plus more importantly, the men and women who operate them, fortifies the capacity and capability of our NATO alliance.” This deployment marks the first time American F-35A fighter jets have made an appearance in Europe, though a few countries already use them as part of their air fleet. “This is an incredible opportunity for [US Air Forces in Europe] airmen and our NATO allies to host this first overseas training deployment of the F-35A aircraft,” said Air Force General Tod D. Wolters.

APRIL 16, 2017
The US army has deployed dozens of troops to Somalia to train forces fighting Al-Shabab Islamist militant group in the largest deployment of troops to the country since 1993, when 18 US soldiers died in a battle dramatized in the movie Black Hawk Down. A US military official told Voice of America that the team will train-and-equip Somali and AMISOM

Turks vote in historic referendum on expanding Erdogan’s power
APRIL 16, 2017
Turks vote in a hotly contested referendum on Sunday that could place sweeping new powers in the hands of President Tayyip Erdogan and herald the most radical change to the country’s political system in its modern history. Opinion polls have given a narrow lead for a “Yes” vote, which would replace Turkey’s parliamentary democracy with an all-powerful presidency and may see Erdogan in office until at least 2029.
The outcome will also shape Turkey’s strained relations with the European Union. The NATO member state has curbed the flow of migrants – mainly refugees from wars in Syria and Iraq – into the bloc but Erdogan says he may review the deal after the vote. Some 55 million people are eligible to vote at 167,140 polling stations across the nation, which open at 7.00 am (0400 GMT) in the east of the country and close at 5 pm (1400 GMT). Turkish voters abroad have already cast their ballots. READ MORE https://www.yahoo.com/news/erdogan-makes-final-push-vote-presidential-powers-132800856.html


DEVELOPING: U.S and Allies Weigh Options After North Korea’s Missile Test
APRIL 16, 2017
The United States, its allies and China are working together on a range of responses to North Korea’s latest attempted ballistic missile test, U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser said on Sunday, citing what he called an international consensus to act. “We are working together with our allies and partners and with the Chinese leadership to develop a range of options,”
national security adviser H.R. McMaster said on ABC’s “This Week” program. “This latest missile test just fits into a pattern of provocative and destabilizing and threatening behavior on the part of the North Korean regime,” McMaster said. He said the president has asked the national security council to integrate the efforts of the Defense and State departments and U.S. intelligence agencies to develop options if “this pattern of behavior continues and if the North Korean Regime refuses to denuclearize.”

America Concerned That North Korea Missiles Could Soon Strike Inland
APRIL 16, 2017
North Korea made an unsuccessful attempt to launch a missile the day after displaying a massive show of strength, South Korean and US military sources have said. Details of the attempted launch are scant, but it will be seen as a gesture of defiance by Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader. U.S. Pacific Command detected and tracked what it assessed to be a North Korean ballistic missile launch at 11:21 a.m.
Hawaii time (2121 GMT) on Saturday, said U.S. Navy Commander Dave Benham, a spokesman for Pacific Command. “The missile blew up almost immediately. The type of missile is still being assessed,” he said. It was launched from a base at Sinpo, a port city on the North Korean east coast. President Donald Trump has been briefed on the latest developments, a White House official said.

North Korea Missile Launch May Have Been Thwarted By US Cyber‑Attack
APRIL 16, 2017
A missile test by North Korea that failed seconds after launch may have been sabotaged by a US cyber-attack, a former foreign secretary has said. The US said a ballistic missile “blew up immediately” after firing near the port of Sinpo on the east coast early today. “It could have failed because the system is not competent enough to make it work, but there is a
very strong belief that the US through cyber methods has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts of tests and making them fail,” Sir Malcolm Rifkind, the former foreign and defence secretary, told the BBC. The test was described as a provocation by the US vice-president Mike Pence, who is on a visit to South Korea amid…

North Korea Reveals New Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles
APRIL 15, 2017
North Korea put its adversaries on notice Saturday, when it showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at its annual military parade. Pyongyang showed off two new intercontinental ballistic missile-sized canisters as well as displaying its submarine-launched ballistic missile and a land-based version of the same for the first time, according to analysts. If North Korea has ICBMs, it could give it the ability to strike targets in the mainland US and Europe.

The shorter range ballistic missiles displayed Saturday, meanwhile, are a threat to countries in the Asian region. North Korea’s display comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels.The US Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the region last weekend, and US President Donald Trump has been tweeting this week that if China can’t rein in North Korea’s nuclear program the US will.

Why Kim Jong Un Is Not Backing Down!
APRIL 15, 2017
As millions of North Koreans celebrate the Day of the Sun today, marking the birth of their cruel dynasty’s founding dictator, Kim Il-sung, his grandson’s nuclear ambitions have put the nation’s fate on a knife-edge and threatens peace throughout East Asia. The chubby young tyrant, Kim Jong-un, has enjoyed playing the unpredictable despot ever since he inherited power in 2011. Now he is playing with fire. This is a leader who would willingly take his small, poverty-stricken country to the brink of war with the world’s only superpower.

He knows he can’t win, but he also knows that a second Korean War will be a bloodbath because he has a vast arsenal – everything from primitive nuclear bombs, ballistic missiles and nerve gas to 150,000 cannon – with which he can hit South Korean cities and the US bases there. To save his own rule – and after the ominous threats emanating from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, in recent days it would be an unimaginable humiliation for him to back down – Kim Jong-un is prepared for North Korea to take the suicide option with devastating consequences for the region.

North Korean Ballistic Missile Launch Fails ….. Now What?
APRIL 16, 2017
North Korea has attempted to fire a missile it introduced just hours ago at a military parade – but the launch was an embarrassing failure after the weapon blew up almost immediately. It is thought to be one of the country’s new ‘game-changer’ intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) which was revealed to the world in a display of military might yesterday. The South Korean defence ministry said it had detected a failed launch from Sinpo –
where North Korea’s biggest submarine base is located. According to a military official the weapon is ‘presumed to be a new ICBM’ as it is longer than the existing KN-08 or KN-14 missiles. The South Korean defence ministry said in a statement: ‘North Korea attempted to test an unidentified type of missile from Sinpo area in the South Hamkyong Province this morning, but we suspect the launch has failed.’

Rogue states like Iran face tougher action as US says nuclear attack by North Korea ‘closer than ever’
APRIL 15, 2017
Rogue states such as Iran face tougher military action from America under Donald Trump, the director of the CIA has warned, as he said the US is “closer now than we have ever been” to the threat of nuclear missiles from North Korea. Mike Pompeo urged Iran to “take note” that Donald Trump’s missile strikes against the Syrian military were a sign the White House was “prepared to engage in activities that are different from what America has been doing these past few
years”. His comments came as China warned that military conflict over North Korea’s nuclear weapon’s programme could break out “at any moment” as a stand off with the US approached breaking point. Tension over the rogue state’s arsenal risks reaching an “irreversible and unmanageable stage” as a US aircraft carrier group steamed towards the region amid fears Pyongyang is on the verge of a nuclear weapons test that would trigger US retaliation.

Underground Bunker Business Exploding From Fears of War
APRIL 15, 2017
The Trump administration’s increased military strikes might cause fear for some people. But for one North Texas man, it means big bucks. Nora Holloway of Dallas is one of those folks who is concerned about the state of the world. Citing the recent bombings in Syria, Afghanistan and the growing tension with North Korea, Holloway posted online to see if anyone wanted to “go in” on an underground bunker.
“I’m in no position to buy one,” said Holloway. “However, I think that for a lot of people that is a serious concern and a lot of people have done so and will be doing so.” The interest level Holloway is expressing is an understatement. “If I took 30 people and I worked 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, I still wouldn’t be caught up right now,” said Clyde Scott of Rising S Bunkers in Murchison, Texas.

Trump’s Approval Wasn’t Needed To Drop MOAB!
APRIL 15, 2017
The decision to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat was made by the top U.S. commander on the ground, officials told Fox News on Friday, after the so-called “mother of all bombs” was used to obliterate an ISIS target in Afghanistan. Fox News is told that Gen. John Nicholson made the decision on his own. President Trump’s approval apparently was not needed. Trump himself declined to say Thursday where the order came from, but stressed that he has

given the military complete flexibility. “We have given [the military] total authorization,” Trump told reporters. “Frankly, that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.” The Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, or MOAB, arrived in Afghanistan in early January, and is designed for its psychological effect as much as the damage it causes – the 21,000-pound bomb has a blast radius of one mile.

Unrest Breaks Out Resulting In 13 Arrested at Pro-Trump / Anti-Trump Demonstrations
APRIL 16, 2017
Police say 13 people have been arrested as pro and anti-Trump demonstrators clashed in Berkeley Saturday. Two simultaneous demonstrations were planned for Civic Center Park. The demonstration has since taken over Center Street and Allston Way between Milvia Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The downtown Berkeley BART station has also closed as a result.
Police say a large number of fights have occurred and numerous fireworks have been thrown in the crowds. There have also been numerous reports of pepper spray being used in the crowd. Photos from the scene Saturday morning showed police dressed in riot gear. In anticipation of the event, police had already informed demonstrators about a long list of items that were banned from the event, such as metal pipes, baseball bats, poles and bricks.

Trump Admin Preparing to Strike North Korea if Nuclear Test Occurs
APRIL 15, 2017
An NBC News report citing “military sources” claims Donald Trump and senior military officials are prepared to launch a preemptive conventional strike against North Korea if the country carries out another nuclear weapons test. Military sources told NBC News that the U.S. has positioned two Tomahawk missiles in the Korean peninsula approximately 300 miles from where North Korea will carry out its next nuclear test.

The preparations come amid rising tensions in the region, with North Korea this week promising a “big event” as the country prepares to celebrate the “Day of the Sun,” the birthday of communist dictator and “eternal leader” Kim Il-sung. Analysts believe that the country is “primed and ready” to carry out a nuclear test based on satellite images but that they would not be capable of enacting a full-scale nuclear attack.

The Return Of Ahmadinejad Could Trigger Deeper Middle East Conflict
APRIL 15, 2017
Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is looking to regain power in the May 2017 election and should he win, bring the Muslim nation into even further extremism. Ahmadinejad’s firebrand style could prove appealing for hard-liners seeking a tough-talking candidate who can stand up to U.S. President Donald Trump. Ahmadinejad, the sixth president of Iran, held the post for two terms from 2005 to 2013 before constitutional limits forced him out. The hardliner repeatedly thumbed his nose at western countries regarding Iran’s nuclear program.

During that time, he became a controversial figure on the world stage and was well known for bombastic and hate-laden speeches on the United Nations floor. His final U.N. speech called for wiping Israel from the face of the Earth. As Joel C. Rosenberg of the Joshua Fund reported, “He aspires to be a mass murderer beyond the scale of Adolf Hitler”. During his final days in office, Ahmadinejad vowed to return with the “Hidden Imam,” who according to Shi’ite belief will reappear to take control of humanity before Judgment Day.

Is the U.S. On The Verge Of Making An Extremely Costly Mistake?
APRIL 15, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) All day long I have just felt sick. Right at this moment, we are closer to war with North Korea than we have been at any point since the Korean War ended in 1953. If Donald Trump decides to launch a military strike against North Korea’s nuclear facilities, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic. The North Koreans have already promised to launch nukes at South Korea and at U.S. military bases in the region in return, and they also have vast stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons that they could use as well.
To get an idea of the chaos that just a handful of North Korean agents armed with biological weapons could unleash inside the United States, just see this article. A military strike on North Korea could be the spark that sets off a global war in which millions of people die, and so we need to do all that we can to prevent this from happening. My hope is that if people make enough noise that Trump will back down and decide not to attack. Earlier today, I was sent the following piece of intel. I was told that I could share it with all of my readers as long as I kept the name of the individual that sent it to me out of it. According to this source, it certainly looks as though an attack is being prepared…

USS Stethem conducting operations in S. China Sea
APRIL 15, 2017
The guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem is conducting operations in the South China Sea, the US Navy has announced amid tensions between Washington and Beijing over China’s controversial claims to the disputed waterway. The Arleigh Burke-class, guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem (DDG 63) is “conducting routine operations” in the South China Sea, according to a Friday press release from the US Navy.
The statement went on to note that the guided-missile destroyer had been refueled at sea by Her Majesty’s New Zealand Ship (HMNZS) Endeavour (A 11). The refueling allowed the vessel to remain mission ready, according to Command Senior Chief William Palmer IV. “Conducting these types of operations with our allies builds proficiency and sustains our ability to maintain a persistent presence throughout the 7th Fleet area of operations,” Palmer said.

BREAKING NEWS: USS Carl Vinson Steams Toward North Korea
APRIL 14, 2017
At a time when experts warn that North Korea’s nuclear test site is “primed and ready,” President Donald Trump on Wednesday told the Fox Business Network, “We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier.” The president said about Kim Jong-un’s threats against U.S. warships, “We have the best military people on Earth. And I will say this: He is doing the wrong thing.” This Saturday

marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-sung, “eternal president” of North Korea, and grandfather of Kim Jong-un. Historically, Pyongyang has launched missile tests around important dates on the North Korean calendar.The “armada,” officially called the U.S. Navy’s Carrier Strike Group 1, is currently making its way toward North Korea. The strike group is led by the flagship U.S.S. Carl Vinson, which was commissioned in 1982, and since has had a long and rich history. Often called “America’s Favorite Aircraft Carrier”

US Air Force F-35s making first operational deployment to Europe this weekend


APRIL 14, 2017
The U.S. Air Force’s F-35A is deploying internationally for the first time this weekend, heading to Europe to conduct training exercises with NATO allies, the Pentagon announced Friday. The Defense Department offered sparse details about the event, which will involve deploying a “small number” of F-35As from the 388th Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, to an undisclosed location in Europe.

The joint strike fighters will take off sometime this weekend. After landing, they will then spend several weeks in the region as part of the European Reassurance Initiative, the department’s effort to strengthen military ties with European allies to help deter Russian aggression on the continent. “This training deployment signifies an important milestone and natural progression of the F-35 program, allowing the Air Force to further demonstrate the operational capabilities of the fifth generation fighter aircraft,”

Pentagon Preparing to Protect Electric Grid from Massive Attack
APRIL 14, 2017
Amid warnings that North Korea and Iran have plans to take out parts of the U.S. electric grid through a cyber attack or atmospheric nuclear blast, the Pentagon is taking steps to both protect the nation’s communications and power lifeline. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has charged BAE Systems to map a system that can detect a cyber attack and gin up an alternative communications network
for military and civilian use if the grid is fried, according to Defense Systems, the online newsletter. Former CIA Director James Woolsey has been warning for years that the grid is extremely vulnerable, and recently the Pentagon and some states have taken the warning seriously. Woolsey and former EMP Commission chief of staff Peter Vincent Pry have pointed a finger at North Korea, which is now threatening the U.S.

US successfully tests new nuclear gravity bomb


APRIL 14, 2017
As the world’s attention was on the first combat use of the conventional “Mother Of All Bombs,” the US National Nuclear Security Administration announced the successful field test of the modernized gravity nuclear bomb in Nevada. The NNSA and the US Air Force completed the first qualification flight test of the B61-12 gravity nuclear bomb on March 14 at the Tonopah Test Range in Nevada, the agency announced on Thursday.
The test was intended to evaluate the weapon’s “non-nuclear functions” and the capability of the F-16 fighter to successfully deploy the bomb. An F-16 fighter from Nellis Air Force Base dropped the “non-nuclear test assembly,” the NNSA said in a statement. “The successful test provides critical qualification data to validate that the baseline design meets military requirements,” said Brigadier General Michael Lutton, NNSA’s principal assistant deputy administrator for military application. The NNSA is part of the Department of Energy, which is charged with managing US nuclear weapons.

China warned on Friday that tensions on the Korean Peninsula could spin out of control, as North Korea said it could test a nuclear weapon at any time and an American naval group neared the peninsula in a show of resolve. “The United States and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent, and there have been storm clouds gathering,” China’s foreign minister,
Wang Yi, said in Beijing, according to Xinhua, the state news agency. “We urge all sides to no longer engage in mutual provocation and threats, whether through words or deeds, and don’t push the situation to the point where it can’t be turned around and gets out of hand,” Mr. Wang said after meeting with his visiting French counterpart, Jean-Marc Ayrault, according to Xinhua.

RUMORS OF WAR: Japan Prepares for emergency and Evacuation Plans…
APRIL 14, 2017
The United States has deployed the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to waters near the Korean Peninsula amid rising military tensions over North Korea. The Japanese government, which has asked the United States to provide advance consultation if it decides to launch military action against North Korea, has ramped up preparations for unexpected situations. The Japanese government anticipates the possibility of a joint response with the United States should a contingency arise.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stressed on Wednesday that the region is becoming increasingly tense. “[U.S. President Donald Trump] has stated that all options are on the table. It’s a fact tensions are rising,” he said at the Prime Minister’s Office after receiving a written proposal calling for tougher sanctions on North Korea from the Liberal Democratic Party’s Eriko Yamatani, chief of the headquarters for the abduction issue. “If an unexpected situation occurs, we’ll ask the United States to cooperate in rescuing the abduction victims,” Abe added.

WAR DRUMS: China warns war could break out ‘at any moment’ over North Korea
APRIL 14, 2017
China has warned that conflict could break out “at any moment” over North Korea amid fears it is preparing to launch a sixth nuclear test or more missiles in defiance of UN sanctions and stark warnings from the US. China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said it was necessary to prevent the situation on the Korean peninsula from going down “an irreversible route”. Earlier, North Korea’s vice foreign minister blamed President Donald Trump for escalating tensions through his tweets and expansion of military exercises,
saying the US was becoming “more vicious and more aggressive” under his leadership than it had been under President Barack Obama. “We will go to war if they choose,” Han Song Ryol told the Associated Press. “Whatever comes from US politicians, if their words are designed to overthrow the DPRK system and government, we will categorically reject them,” he said. The US has sent an aircraft carrier to waters off the peninsula and is conducting its biggest-ever joint military exercises with South Korea.

N. Korea will strike US bases in Asian Pacific & S. Korean presidential palace if US attacks
APRIL 14, 2017
North Korea will strike US military bases in Japan and South Korea, as well as the South Korean president’s residence in Seoul, if America engages in aggression against Pyongyang, North Korea’s General Staff warned, according to state news agency KCNA. North Korea’s military promised to “ruthlessly ravage” the US if the American aircraft carrier group that is currently on its way to the region takes aggressive action. “Our toughest counteraction against the US and its vassal

forces will be taken in such a merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive,” a statement from the military said. “The Trump administration, which made a surprise guided cruise-missile strike on Syria on April 6, has entered the path of open threat and blackmail,” the statement added. The General Staff noted that, American military bases in the Pacific, Guam, the island of Okinawa, which hosts the bulk of US troops in Japan, as well as the US mainland, are all within reach of North Korea’s strategic missiles.

Russia, Syria & Iran demand no further US strikes on Syria!


APRIL 14, 2017
The US cruise missile attack on Syria was an act of international aggression, Russia, Syria and Iran have stated after a meeting of their foreign ministers in Moscow. “We have reiterated our position and were united in stating that the attack was an act of aggression, which blatantly violated the principles of international law and the UN Charter,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. “We call on the US and its allies to respect Syria’s sovereignty and refrain from

actions similar to what happened on April 7, and which have serious ramification not only for regional, but also global security,” he added. Lavrov was referring to the Tomahawk missile barrage fired by the US Navy at a Syrian airbase in Homs province. Washington ordered the attack after accusing Damascus of launching a chemical weapons attack at a rebel-held town in Idlib province from that airbase. Russia condemned the move, saying the US hadn’t offered any proof to pin the alleged chemical weapons incident on the Syrian Army.

He added that Pyongyang possesses “a powerful nuclear deterrent” and the North “certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a US pre-emptive strike.’’ “We will go to war if they choose,” he stated. On Thursday, US intelligence officials told NBC News that the US has positioned two destroyers armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles some 480 kilometers from North Korea’s nuclear test site. Washington intends to act preemptively if it becomes “convinced” that a nuclear detonation is imminent.

WAR DRUMS: Japan sending warships to join US fleet to be ready for conflict.
APRIL 14, 2017
North Korea has enemies surrounding its borders after causing global terror with its nuclear weapons program. Kim Jong-un has threatened to nuke many of his neighbors and the US as the dastardly dictator flexes his muscles. In response, Donald Trump has sent its naval fleet to the Korean peninsula over fears of North Korea’s ICBM development. And it has now been revealed that Japanese warships will be joining the Carl Vinson as Kim’s reign of terror faces collapse. A military source said:
“Japan wants to dispatch several destroyers as the Carl Vinson enters the East China Sea.” The source added that he had direct knowledge of the military operation. The Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Force may conduct helicopter landings on each other’s ships, as well as communication drills as the US fleet passes through its waters. The tubby tyrant has warned the US that it will nuke American heartland and its bases in the area if they see any signs of aggression.

APRIL 14, 2017
US president Donald Trump has pressed China to do more to tackle North Korea’s nuclear missile plan. A military report from China stated they would not hesitate to bomb the hermit kingdom if they crossed their “bottom line”,and reports suggested it had moved 150,000 troops to the North Korean border.Now the Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy has claimed 25,000 more troops are being sent to the border after all Chinese troops were placed on nationwide alert.
The troops, from the 47th group army of the Ninth Armoured Brigade, have been instructed to be ready to move to the border as a result of global tensions. US warfleet, the Carl Vinson is scheduled to be joined by Japanese war ships in the Korean peninsula as Kim Jong-un is facing military action on multiple fronts. But the tubby tyrant responded in defiant fashion, vowing to nuke the fleet at any sign of aggression.

Russian Lawmaker Says U.S Greater Threat Than North Korea
APRIL 14, 2017
A senior Russian lawmaker says the U.S. is a greater threat to global peace than North Korea. Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, said Friday “the most alarming thing about the current U.S. administration is that you can’t be sure if it is bluffing or really going to implement its threats.”

He says “America objectively poses a greater threat to peace than North Korea,” adding that “the entire world is scared and left guessing if it strikes or not.” Kosachev says there is a “small hope” that President Donald Trump’s administration would listen to warnings from Russia and China not to use military force against nuclear-armed Pyongyang.

Could North Korean Agents Release Biological Weapons In Major U.S. Cities
APRIL 14, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Most Americans have no idea that biological weapons could potentially bring our nation to a complete and utter standstill within a matter of days. In recent articles I have been trying to get people to understand why it would be so exceedingly dangerous for the United States to attack North Korea. If the North Koreans used weapons of mass destruction, we could easily be facing a situation in which millions of North Korean and Japanese citizens end up dead.

But since it would happen on the other side of the planet, such a scenario doesn’t seem to emotionally move a lot of people. So today, I want to try to get people to understand the immense devastation that just a handful of North Korean agents could cause inside our own country. A war with North Korea would be fundamentally different from other wars, because there would be no line that the North Koreans would not be willing to cross. They would use nukes, they would use chemical weapons, and they would not hesitate to even use biological weapons on innocent civilian populations.

RUMORS OF WAR: Could Australia Be Pulled Into Confrontation with China?
APRIL 14, 2017
Wars can happen suddenly in an atmosphere of mistrust and provocation, especially if a minor power, like Australia, abandons its independence for an “alliance” with an unstable superpower. The United States is at a critical moment. Having exported its all-powerful manufacturing base, run down its industry and reduced millions of its once-hopeful people to poverty, the principal American power today is brute force. When Donald Trump launched his missile attack on Syria – following his bombing of a mosque and a school –
he was having dinner in Florida with the President of China, Xi Jinping. Trump’s attack on Syria had little to do with chemical weapons. It was, above all, to show his detractors and doubters in Washington’s war-making institutions – the Pentagon, the CIA, the Congress – how tough he was and prepared to risk a war with Russia. He had spilled blood in Syria, a Russian protectorate; he was surely now on the team. The attack was also meant to say directly to President Xi, his dinner guest: this is how we deal with those who challenge the top dog.

China Flexes It’s Muscle Amid Growing Military Tensions
APRIL 14, 2017
China has flexed its military muscle on state television as tensions escalate between the US and North Korea. China Central Television (CCTV) yesterday revealed footage of the country’s various missiles in a daily military programme. According to media, one of the weapons featured in the programme was DF-21 missile. The anti-ship ballistic missile boasts a firing distance of up to 1,926 miles (3,100km) and has been dubbed ‘the killer of aircraft carrier’.
The programme, Military Reports, was broadcast by CCTV 7, a channel dedicated to showing military and agricultural content. The 30-minute show contained several reports, and the missiles appeared in the first two reports. In the first report, the state-controlled station aired footage from a series of mock battles carried out by People’s Liberation Army recently. The exact location of the battles was not revealed, but it was reported to be deep in the Tianshan Mountains in western China.

North Korea May Attempt Nuclear Detonation to Mark Sinister ‘Day of the Sun’
APRIL 14, 2017
New satellite images have emerged purportedly showing how North Korea is preparing to detonate a nuclear bomb to coincide with its ‘Day of the Sun’ national day on Saturday. Aerial photos taken yesterday show continued activity at the Punggye-ri Nuclear site where US officials fear a nuclear device has been installed in a tunnel ahead of another test. It comes as the regime today warned foreign journalists to prepare for a ‘big event’ on Thursday and as tensions remained high after President Donald Trump sent a
US Navy strike group steaming toward the Korean Peninsula. North Korea’s most important national day is on Saturday April 15 when North Korea commemorates the birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung. However, the big event may have been the grand unveiling of a sprawling housing project in Pyongyang. Ahead of the event, Kim Jong-un yesterday oversaw a commando operation in which special forces dropped from light transport planes ‘like hail’ and ‘mercilessly blew up enemy targets’.

RUMORS OF WAR: U.S. May Launch Strike If North Korea Reaches For Nuclear Trigger
APRIL 14, 2017
The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News. North Korea has warned that a “big event” is near, and U.S. officials say signs point to a nuclear test that could come as early as this weekend.
The intelligence officials told NBC News that the U.S. has positioned two destroyers capable of shooting Tomahawk cruise missiles in the region, one just 300 miles from the North Korean nuclear test site. American heavy bombers are also positioned in Guam to attack North Korea should it be necessary, and earlier this week, the Pentagon announced that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group was being diverted to the area.

China Warns US Against Striking North Korea
APRIL 13, 2017
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.” An editorial in the influential newspaper Global Times,

Keywords ‘World War 3’ Hits News Record As Fears Grow!
APRIL 13, 2017
As warships move off the coast of North Korea and cruise missile stay pointed at Syria, you might be forgiven for the odd macabre thought over the past week. And it seems you are not alone, as Google data reveals people have been obsessed with the idea of worldwide conflict in recent days. Searches for ‘World War 3’ hit their highest level since records started in 2004 this month, according to data brought to light by Infowars.
Searches for ‘war’ and ‘nuclear war’ are also at their highest level since the start of the year. Google users have also been looking for information on ‘Trump war’ and ‘Syria war’ in record-breaking numbers. The spikes came following Trump’s shock decision to launch cruise missiles against a Syrian regime airbase last week where Russian troops were stationed. Russia and Iran have since responded by saying the strike crossed a ‘red line’ adding that if there are any further attacks ‘we will respond with force’.

RUMORS OF WAR: What Happens If Kim Jong-Un Is Not Bluffing?
APRIL 13, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to “solve” the North Korean problem, and the North Koreans have repeatedly promised to use nuclear weapons in response to any attack by the U.S. military. So what happens if both sides are not bluffing? For eight years, Americans had become accustomed to Barack Obama making threats and never following through on them, so it surprised a lot of people when Trump actually backed up his words by striking Syria after publicly pledging to do so. Now Trump has publicly committed to take military action in North Korea,
and I am absolutely convinced that he is not bluffing. But if Kim Jong-Un is not bluffing either, and I don’t think that he is, that means that we are on the verge of what could be a horrifying military conflict with the North Koreans.The critical moment could actually be just hours away. Foreign journalists in North Korea have been instructed to be ready to witness a “big and important event” on Thursday, and many believe that this “event” could be the testing of a large nuclear device.

Japan warns North Korea may be capable of arming missiles with sarin
APRIL 13, 2017
North Korea may already have the capability to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve agent, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday. His warning came as analysts said North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test ahead of a key anniversary in the country and following the deployment of a US naval strike group to the region.
“The security situation around our country is getting increasingly severe,” Abe said, who was addressing the Japanese parliament’s diplomacy and defense committee. “We have just talked about Syria. There is a possibility that North Korea already has a capability to put sarin on warheads to strike the ground,” he said. Abe did not provide any evidence why he felt North Korea had the capability to equip missiles with chemical weapons.

Satellite photos show North Korean nuclear site ‘primed and ready’
APRIL 13, 2017
North Korean monitoring service 38 North said Wednesday the country’s Punggye-ri nuclear site is “primed and ready” for a sixth nuclear test. “The activity during the past six weeks is suggestive of the final preparations for a test,” 38 North analyst Joseph Bermudez told CNN. Their prediction comes as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Thursday that North Korea may have the capability to deliver missiles equipped with sarin nerve gas.
He and other analysts pore over commercial satellite imagery of the testing site, looking for signs of activity similar to that prior to other tests.Bermudez and his colleague Jack Liu correctly predicted the last nuclear test, in September 2016. Since late February they have been warning of increased activity at the site, particularly new equipment arriving, activity at the command center, and excavation and water pumping from entrances to the underground testing site.

WAR DRUMS: Elite US Navy Seals training in South Korea to Take out Kim Jong-un’
APRIL 12, 2017
The crack US Navy Seal team that killed Osama bin Laden is reportedly training to take out North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un. Seal Team Six is taking part in secretive drills alongside other elite US forces in South Korea amid rising tensions with Pyongyang, news.com.au reports. US military officials confirmed “ground, air, naval and special operations”
are taking part in “several joint and combined field training operations” which involve up to 17,000 troops. And South Korean newspaper JoongAng Daily has claimed the teams would take part in a drill to simulate the removal of Kim Jong-un. But US officials denied the elite troopers are preparing a raid to take out Kim.

Putin Says U.S and Russia relations worse since Trump took office

Levels of trust between Moscow and Washington have deteriorated since U.S. President Donald Trump took office, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview broadcast on Wednesday. Asked about relations since Trump became president, Putin said, according to a transcript of the interview released by the Kremlin: “One could say that the

level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved, but rather has deteriorated.” Asked about accusations that Syria’s government launched a chemical weapons attack in Idlib province, Putin said that Damascus had given up its chemical weapons stocks. He said he believed there were two main explanations for the incident in Idlib province: READ MORE http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-russia-tillerson-putin-idUSKBN17E11W

Russian nuke bombers fly near Japan… First Time In Months
APRIL 12, 2017
For the first time in nearly three months, Russia flew nuclear-capable “Bear” bombers near Japan, Wednesday, the latest sign of increasing tensions in the region, two US officials tell Fox News. The officials said three Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers took off from a base in eastern Russia flying in the Sea of Japan and remained in international airspace. One U.S. official described the Russian bomber flight as “clearly meant to send a message”
This latest provocation from Russia comes as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visits Moscow, Wednesday, the first visit by a cabinet member to Russia since President Trump assumed office. Joining the three Russian long-range bombers was a IL-20 spy plane. The Russian bombers took off Wednesday from an air base in Ukrainka in eastern Russia, home to one of Russia’s largest fleet of strategic bombers.

Nuke-sniffer aircraft arrives on Okinawa as tensions rise on Korean peninsula
APRIL 12, 2017
A U.S. aircraft that specializes in detecting radioactive debris after the detonation of a nuclear device has arrived on Okinawa amid rising tensions on the Korean peninsula. An Air Force WC-135 Constant Phoenix — commonly referred to as a nuke-sniffer — arrived at Kadena Air Base last Friday evening, said Satoru Kuba, an Okinawan who monitors military aircraft traffic at Kadena Air Base. A spokesperson for the Air Force’s 18th Wing at Kadena did not immediately respond to requests for cmment,
and Japan’s Ministry of Defense would not immediately verify the report. However, a senior Japan Self-Defense Forces official confirmed the aircraft’s arrival, according to a report Wednesday by Japan’s Nikkei newspaper. The Pentagon has often deployed one of the Air Force’s two WC-135 aircraft to the Asia-Pacific region since North Korea detonated an underground nuclear device in 2006. The plane also flew over Japan in 2011 after the meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, according to the Washington Post.

Hidden Submarine Poses Great Threat Amid Nuclear Attack Plan
APRIL 12, 2017
Could Kim Jong-Un be planning an underwater nuclear attack using a secret submarine? While North Korea is still struggling to develop nuclear-headed airborne missiles, it is fast increasing its underwater military power. The country possess numerous submarines, which it has used with devastating effect in the past, with fears they are now being adapted to fire nuclear weapons.
Even more worrying is the submarines’ ability to ‘disappear’ and avoid detection. In 2015 around 50 went missing, setting alarm bells ringing in Seoul and Tokyo. Security expert Bruce Klingner told CNBC: “We didn’t know where they were at the time. One would hope that we would keep very close tabs on those that could launch the submarine-launched ballistic missiles [SLBMs]. “All of that is very worrisome because that may very well have a nuclear weapon someday.”

Russian Newspaper Reporting Kim Jong-un orders evacuation of 600,000 from Pyongyang
By Ricky Scaparo on Apr 12, 2017 10:36 pm
APRIL 13, 2017
North Koreaт leader Kim Jong-un ordered 25 percent of Pyongyang residents to leave the city immediately. In accordance with the order, 600,000 people should be urgently evacuated. Experts note that the evacuation will most likely be conducted due to extremely strained tensions in relations with the United States of America. Reportedly, Pyongyang’s bomb shelters will not be able to accommodate the entire population of the North Korean capital. Therefore, 600,000 people – mostly individuals with criminal records –

will have to leave Pyongyang to let others use bomb shelters. It was also said that one modified Ohio type rocket carrier carrying 154 Tomahawk type missiles on board joined the US Navy deployed near the coast of the Korean Peninsula. The missile carrier is expected to arrive at the port of registration on April 18. Meanwhile, according to South Korean media, residents of the DPRK say goodbye to each other, to their homes, to their places of work, to forests and fields, to the sky, rivers, etc as if the nation prepares for a large-scale war.

Foreign journalists in North Korea told to prepare for ‘Big’ Event this Thursday
APRIL 13, 2017
Foreign journalists visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on Thursday, although there were no indications it was directly linked to tensions in the region over the isolated state’s nuclear weapons program. Around 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15, North Korea’s biggest national day called “Day of the Sun”.

Officials gave no details as to the nature of the event or where it would take place, and similar announcements in the past have been linked to relatively low-key set pieces. In 2016, for example, foreign journalists underwent hours of investigation by North Korean officials ahead of what turned out to be a pop concert to mark the finale of a ruling Workers’ Party congress.

DEVELOPING: North Korea Preparing Nuclear Test
By Ricky Scaparo on Apr 12, 2017 10:20 pm
US military bosses fear North Korea is ready to detonate a nuclear bomb it has placed in a tunnel. It is believed North Korea is in the final states of preparing for its sixth nuclear test. A Voice of America journalist tweeted that US government sources believe North Korea had placed a nuclear device in a tunnel and it could be detonated as early as this weekend.
It comes after Washington-based 38 North, a website that monitors North Korea, said satellite images from Saturday showed vehicles and trailers at the Punggye-ri test site and signs that communications cables may have been laid to a test tunnel. The think tank said water appears to be being pumped out and was draining downhill “presumably to keep the tunnel dry for monitoring or communications equipment”.

WAR DRUMS: Trump warns NK is ‘looking for trouble’, Says US ‘will solve problem with or without China’
By Ricky Scaparo on Apr 11, 2017 08:43 am
Donald Trump has warned North Korea is “looking for trouble” after the country declared it was “ready for war”. The US President ramped up his war of words with the secretive state via Twitter as America woke up this morning. North Korea was angered after a US Navy strike group, including the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, diverted to the region amid rising tensions.

A government statement to North Korea’s state-controlled news agency said: “This goes to prove that the US reckless moves for invading the DPRK have reached a serious phase. “The DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US.” This morning the President kept up the pressure – and urged China to take his side to win better trade with the US.

WAR DRUMS: Secretary of State Warns “Reign of the Assad family is coming to an end”
APRIL 11, 2017
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Moscow on Tuesday to face what might be his toughest test yet as chief diplomat as he seeks to convince Russia to back away from its support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The visit, Mr. Tillerson’s first as secretary of State, comes as hopes for a broader U.S.-Russian rapprochement have dimmed and as ties between the two former Cold War foes have further soured over
President Donald Trump’s decision last week to strike a Syrian air base in response to Mr. Assad’s suspected deadly chemical weapons attack on April 4. He arrived Tuesday following a two-day stop in Italy for a meeting with top officials Group of 7 member countries—the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan. Before leaving Italy, he issued a new U.S. demand for the eventual removal of Mr. Assad, who is blamed by the U.S. and West for the long-running civil war in Syria.

WAR DRUMS: White House Accuses Russia of Cover-Up in Syria Chemical Attack
APRIL 11, 2017
The White House accused the Russian government on Tuesday of engaging in a cover-up of the chemical weapons attack last week by Syrian forces that prompted American missile strikes, saying that United States intelligence and numerous contemporaneous reports confirmed that the Syrians used sarin gas on their own people. In a declassified four-page report that details United States intelligence on the chemical weapons attack and contains a point-by-point rebuttal of Moscow’s
claims, the White House asserted that the Syrian and Russian governments had sought to confuse the world community about the assault through disinformation and “false narratives.” The strongly worded document calls for international condemnation of Syria’s use of chemical weapons and harshly criticizes Russia for “shielding” an ally that has used weapons of mass destruction.

4 things every Christian should pray for in the morning
APRIL 10, 2017
(By Patrick Mabilog) The Bible encourages us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And a lifestyle of non-stop prayer starts in the morning. There’s something about praying in the morning that aligns us better. In a spiritual, mental and even physiological sense we seem more focused and clear with our day when we start it off with prayer. When it comes to praying in the morning, there’s no example better than Jesus. Mark 1:35 tells us, “And rising very early in the morning,
while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.” If Jesus made it a point to pray early in the morning, there’s no reason for us not to strive for us to do the same. Praying in the morning is a means of inviting God into our day even before it begins and allowing Him to go before us. Here are four things you can pray for in the morning as you approach God and offer your day to Him.

RUMORS OF WAR: Ex-MI6 chief fears Trump will launch catastrophic war on North Korea
US President Donald Trump could lead the world into a catastrophic war with North Korea because of his inexperience and temperament, former British spy boss Sir John Sawers has warned.
The former spymaster warned that Trump’s temperament could plunge the UK into a war in the Far East which would be more dangerous than anything that could emerge in Syria.
The aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) transits the Pacific Ocean © ReutersUS Navy strike group heads towards N. Korea over Pyongyang’s ‘nuclear threat’
“[Trump’s] not someone who fills me with confidence,” Sawers told the BBC.
“He doesn’t have the background and the experience and the instincts of being an effective US president, but it is in our interests that we have a US administration that upholds the international system, that supports its allies and supports international norms,” he said.
The more serious figures in the US administration have been stepping in to make up for Trumps’ rashness and inexperience after the US missile strike on a Syrian airbase, said Sawers.
“We see the sensible grown-ups within the administration taking charge and the rather ideological figures around Trump himself being marginalized, and that’s to be welcomed,” he added.
The former intelligence chief said the Korean peninsula is by far the most serious potential flashpoint at the moment.
“If you are looking for a world crisis which could bring about the dangers of a clash between great powers then North Korea is a bigger concern than Syria,” he said.
In March, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the strategy of patience with North Korea was over.
The aircraft carrier ‘USS Carl Vinson’ has recently redirected to the seas around the peninsula.
Sawers said that Washington’s increased militarization of the region was designed to show North Korea and China that “the US was willing to use force against another state to uphold international order, uphold international norms.”
He insisted this was a calculated move that would see North Korea treated “very seriously.”
“I think what the Chinese are beginning to understand is that if this can’t be solved peaceably through negotiations, through pressure, then there is serious risk that the US will have only one option left, which is the military option,” Sawers warned.

Russia Knew In Advance Of Syrian Chemical Attack
APRIL 10, 2017
A senior U.S. official says the United States has concluded that Russia knew in advance of Syria’s chemical weapons attack last week. The official says a Russian-operated drone flew over a hospital in Syria as victims of the attack were rushing to receive treatment. Hours after the drone left, a Russian-made fighter jet bombed the hospital in what American officials believe was an attempt to cover up the usage of chemical weapons.
Until Monday, U.S. officials had said they weren’t sure if the drone was operated by Russia or Syria. The senior official said it still wasn’t clear who was flying the jet that bombed the hospital. The official said the presence of the drone couldn’t have been a coincidence, and that Russia must have known the chemical weapons attack was coming and that victims were seeking treatment. http://endtimeheadlines.org/2017/04/russia-knew-advance-syrian-chemical-attack/

WAR DRUMS: China Deploys 150,000 Troops to North Korea Border
APRIL 10, 2017
The Chinese army has deployed 150,000 troops to the North Korean border to prepare for pre-emptive attacks after the United States dropped airstrikes on Syria. President Donald Trump‘s missile strike on Syria on Friday was widely interpreted as a warning to North Korea. And now China,
left shocked by the air strikes, has deployed medical and backup units from the People’s Liberation Army forces to the Yalu River, Korea’s Chosun.com reported. The troops have been dispatched to handle North Korean refugees and ‘unforeseen circumstances’, such as the prospect of preemptive attacks on North Korea, the news agency said. Meanwhile, the US Navy has moved the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group from Singapore to North Korea after the country conducted more missile testing.

WAR DRUMS: North Korea warns of nuclear strike if provoked as U.S. warships approach
APRIL 11, 2017
North Korean state media on Tuesday warned of a nuclear attack on the United States at any sign of U.S. aggression as a U.S. Navy strike group steamed towards the western Pacific. U.S. President Donald Trump, who has urged China to do more to rein in its impoverished neighbour, said in a Tweet North Korea was “looking for trouble” and the United States would “solve the problem” with or without China’s help. Tension has escalated sharply on the Korean peninsula with talk of military action by the
United States gaining traction following its strikes last week against Syria and amid concerns the reclusive North may soon conduct a sixth nuclear test. North Korea’s official Rodong Sinmun newspaper said the country was prepared to respond to any aggression by the United States. “Our revolutionary strong army is keenly watching every move by enemy elements with our nuclear sight focused on the U.S. invasionary bases not only in South Korea and the Pacific operation theatre but also in the U.S. mainland,” it said.

PROPHECY WATCH: Coalition Forming To Remove Assad!
APRIL 6, 2017
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that “steps are underway” on an international coalition to pressure Bashar Assad from power, as President Trump was being briefed on military options for Syria – though what specific steps the U.S. and its allies might take in response to the latest deadly chemical weapons attack remained unclear. America’s top diplomat addressed the Syria crisis a day after Trump declared in the Rose Garden that the chemical strike would not be tolerated.
Tillerson pointedly said Russia should “consider carefully” its support for the Assad regime, while calling for an international effort to defeat ISIS in Syria, stabilize the country and ultimately work with partners through a political process that leads to Assad leaving power. Asked if the U.S. would organize a coalition to remove Assad, Tillerson said: “Those steps are underway.”

WAR DRUMS: Russia Warns United States Over Possible Military Strike Against Syria
APRIL 7, 2017
The situation in Syria is reaching a boiling point as now reports are indicating that Russia’s deputy U.N. envoy, Vladimir Safronkov, warned on Thursday of “negative consequences” if the United States carries out military strikes on Syria over a deadly toxic gas attack.
“We have to think about negative consequences, negative consequences, and all the responsibility if military action occurred will be on shoulders of those who initiated such doubtful and tragic enterprise,” Safronkov told reporters when asked about possible U.S. strikes. When asked what those negative consequences could be, he said: “Look at Iraq, look at Libya.”

Syrian military airfield struck in first direct attack on Bashar al-Assad’s government
APRIL 7, 2017
The U.S. military launched approximately 50 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield late on Thursday, in the first direct American assault on the government of President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago. The operation, which the Trump administration authorized in retaliation for a chemical attack killing scores of civilians this week, dramatically expands U.S. military involvement in Syria and exposes the United States to heightened risk of
direct confrontation with Russia and Iran, both backing Assad in his attempt to crush his opposition. The missiles were launched from two Navy destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean. They targeted an airbase called Shayrat in Homs province, which is the site from which the planes that conducted the chemical attack in Idlib are believed to have originated.

WAR DRUMS: United States May Be On Brink Of War With Russia Over Syria Conflict
Donald Trump warned he is 'one step away from military clashes with Russia' after Syria blitz
US president insisted it was time the Assad regime was reined in from its attacks on innocent Syrians
APRIL 8, 2017
Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump were last night urged to hold emergency talks as growing tensions in the Middle East ­threatened to explode into war. The Russian president sent the missile warship Admiral Grigorovich to Syria after the US leader yesterday unleashed 59 ­Tomahawk cruise missiles on the airfield from where Bashar al-Assad launched a sarin gas attack on his own people.
A British nuclear submarine is patrolling the Mediterranean and Nato forces were on high alert throughout the region. As the region teetered on the brink, world leaders, including Theresa May, backed the American strikes at al-Shayrat base, but there were calls for talks in a bid to prevent the crisis turning into a wider conflict.

DEVELOPING: Russia May Have Directly Participated in Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack
APRIL 7, 2017
A stunning update on Friday afternoon from the Associated Press said the Pentagon is investigating possible Russian participation in the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack. These officials also supported the dire suspicion that nearby hospitals were attacked to cover up evidence of the WMD deployment: The officials say Russia has failed to control the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons.
They say a drone belonging either to Russia or Syria was seen hovering over the site of the chemical weapons attack Tuesday after it happened. The drone returned late in the day as citizens were going to a nearby hospital for treatment. Shortly afterward, officials say the hospital was bombed.

Russian Deputy US Envoy Claims US afraid of real investigation into Syria chemical attack
APRIL 7, 2017
The US missile strike in Syria “only facilitated the strengthening of terrorism,” Russia’s representative at the UN Security Council has said, adding that it shows Washington is “afraid” of a “real investigation” into an alleged chemical attack in Syria. The US has “attacked those who combatted terrorism” in Syria, the Russian deputy acting envoy to the UN, Vladimir Safronkov, said at a UN meeting on Friday.
Saying that Washington’s attack on a Syrian airfield in the early hours of Friday morning was an “illegitimate act of aggression” on a “sovereign country,” the Russian diplomat said that the strike had “raised the spirits of terrorists” in the region. Previously, Washington had justified the presence of its troops in Syria with joint efforts in fighting international terrorism, Safronkov said, adding that the recent attack had proven otherwise.

WAR DRUMS: Tensions Rise With Iran After U.S. Strike in Syria
APRIL 8, 2017
The U.S. airstrikes on Syria stoked new tensions with Iran and generated calls in Tehran for increased military support for President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. Iranian officials said on Friday the U.S. attack violated international law and accused President Donald Trump of siding with Islamic State and al Qaeda in Syria. “Not even two decades after 9/11, [the] U.S. military is fighting on same side as al-Qaeda & ISIS in Yemen & Syria,”
Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted on Friday. “Time to stop hype and coverups.” But Mr. Trump and his advisers have already taken steps in recent months to try to roll back Iranian influence in the Middle East, despite the landmark nuclear agreement forged between Tehran and global powers in 2015.

Russian warship steams toward US destroyers that launched Syria strikes
APRIL 7, 2017
A Russian warship entered the eastern Mediterranean Friday and was heading toward the area where two U.S. Navy destroyers launched missile strikes into Syria, Fox News has learned. The Russian frigate, Admiral Grigorovich RFS-494, crossed through the Bosphorus Strait “a few hours ago” from the Black Sea, according to a U.S. defense official.
The Russian warship is now in the eastern Mediterranean steaming in the direction of the U.S. warships. The Admiral Grigorovich is armed with advanced Kalibr cruise missiles. Also Friday, one of the American destroyers that launched the missiles into Syria started heading to an undisclosed location to rearm.

Chemical Warfare and Nuclear Weapons could lead to the Apocalypse!
APRIL 7, 2017
President Trump’s missile attack on the Syrian regime brought the daunting prospect of World War Three even closer. The whirlwind assault was in response to evidence showing brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad dropped chemical weapons on a rebel-held town. Trump ordered two US Navy warships to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles which rained down on an air base near Homs. Evidence suggests that it was from here that regime planes carrying the murderous gas bombs took off, according to the President. The UK called the deadly riposte —
which completely destroyed the base and killed personnel — an “appropriate” response to Assad’s barbaric slaughter of around 100 people, including children. But in a sign of how fraught with risk the move was, the Pentagon revealed that it had given prior warning to pro-Assad Russian counterparts before the missile strike. There were fears that such an action, consistently avoided under the Obama administration despite his talk of a “red line” being crossed, may pave the way to conflict between old foes America and Russia.

WAR DRUMS: Trump’s Options for North Korea Include Placing Nukes in South Korea
APRIL 8, 2017
The National Security Council has presented President Trump with options to respond to North Korea’s nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News. Both scenarios are part of an accelerated review of North Korea policy prepared in advance of President Donald Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week.
The White House hopes the Chinese will do more to influence Pyongyang through diplomacy and enhanced sanctions. But if that fails, and North Korea continues its development of nuclear weapons, there are other options on the table that would significantly alter U.S. policy.

North Korea Warns Trump to Prepare For War!
APRIL 7, 2017
KIM Jong-Un has placed his country on the “brink of war” as a high-profile defector urged US President Donald Trump to assassinate the despot North Korean leader before he fires his nuclear weapons at America and the UK. Yesterday Trump pledged to ramp up defences against Pyongyang as he met China’s president Xi Jinping for crunch talks in Florida.
Trump’s warning comes as a massive joint naval exercise involving Japan, South Korea and the US was being held this week aimed at countering the threat from North Korean submarines – ramping up the tense situation in the region. This training was branded “reckless” by North Korea’s foreign ministry who said it was driving the Korean peninsula to the “brink of war”.

FLASHBACK: Absolutely Shocking Syria War Bible Code
By Ricky Scaparo on Apr 07, 2017 03:55 pm
THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN IN 2013 (By Michael Snyder) Did you know that there is a Bible code matrix that contains the words “Armageddon”,...
“Asad”, “Military” and “Holocaust”? Did you know that there is another Bible Code matrix that contains the words “Syria”, “World War”, “Russia”, “China” and “USA”? These discoveries were made by Michael Drosnin in his 1997 book entitled “The Bible Code“, but what is going on in the Middle East right now is causing a lot of people to give these Bible codes a second look. Could it be possible that our future is encoded in the ancient Hebrew Scriptures? Some people believe that there is something to these Bible codes while others consider them to be a total load of nonsense. If you are not familiar with the Bible codes, the following is a quick summary from Wikipedia…
The Bible code (Hebrew: צפנים בתנ”ך‎), also known as the Torah code, is a purported set of secret messages encoded within the Hebrew text of the Torah. This hidden code has been described as a method by which specific letters from the text can be selected to reveal an otherwise obscured message. Although Bible codes have been postulated and studied for centuries, the subject has been popularized in modern times by Michael Drosnin‘s book The Bible Code and the movie The Omega Code.
Many examples have been documented in the past. One cited example is that by taking every 50th letter of the Book of Genesis starting with the first taw, the Hebrew word “torah” is spelled out. The same happens in the Book of Exodus. Modern computers have been used to search for similar patterns and more complex variants, and it has been published as a “challenging puzzle” in a peer-reviewed academic journal in 1994.
