BOMBSHELL: N. Korea Issues Jaw-Dropping Threat, This Could Get Ugly
October 12, 2017 Mark Prvulovic

Whatever their thought process may be, North Korean leaders are continuing to push the envelope regarding their rhetoric.

In response to Trump’s statements at the UN, North Korea’s foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, said, “With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us. We need to settle the final score, only with a hail of fire, not words,” according to The Daily Express.

North Korea’s foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, accused President Trump of fanning the flames of a potential third world war, saying that tensions cannot be settled with mere words anymore.

This response came in light of Trump’s previous comments which suggested that the US wasn’t willing to appeal to the rogue nation anymore. “Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, making fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!” said the president.

Trump’s comments refer to the previous negotiations done by the Clinton administration in 1994, in which they negotiated a sellout deal to give North Korea $5 billion in aid as well as two new nuclear reactors if the rogue government promised to abandon their nuclear ambitions. It was an arrangement that they violated almost immediately after they received the money.

Instead of choosing a policy of appeasement, Trump has been consistently standing up to the foreign dictator. Yesterday, US bombers flew over the Korean peninsula as one of many demonstrations of force against the North Korean leader. They conducted a simulated air-to-ground missile-firing drill alongside two South Korean fighters in the East Sea. Japan also sent two military aircraft to participate in light of the mounting tensions in the area.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned that it is impossible to tell how the situation will play out, but warned our military personnel to be prepared for any potential confrontation with the rogue nation.

“It is right now a diplomatically led, economic sanctions-buttressed effort to try to turn North Korea off of this path,” the general said. “Now what does the future hold? Neither you nor I can say, so there is one thing the US Army can do. And that is you have to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our president can deploy if needed.”

The North Korean foreign minister also said that Trump had declared war when he said that Kim Jong-un “won’t be around much longer,” according to The Telegraph.

Kim Jong-Un is threatening war against the United States. Do you believe the US can respond to an attack?

POLL: Can The US Withstand A Nuclear Attack?

Yes
No

Some experts have speculated that the reason Kim has been so vocal and persistent in his saber-rattling is that he’s been growing increasingly paranoid for his life. Ever since North Korean hackers succeeded in uncovering the details of a potential assassination plot against the North Korean leader, analysts have seen this recent behavior as a sign that Kim is becoming increasingly worried for his life. In light of this knowledge, it’s entirely possible that Trump’s tweets are in fact a form of psychological warfare meant to further worry his counterpart.

North Korea has made many threats over the past few months; whether or not they will follow through with them is yet to be seen. Let’s hope that they do not.

BREAKING: N. Korea Commits Act of War Against US
October 11, 2017 Ben Baker
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/n-korea-commits-act-of-war/?With the tensions running high between the US and North Korea, there was bound to be some poking and prodding.

According to The Daily Mail, North Korea may have committed an act of war against the US via sabotage. It is believed that hackers working with North Korea attempted to hack into US power companies.

FireEye, an Internet security firm, reported that a number of emails were sent to various electric companies as part of a phishing hack attempt. The emails were invites to a supposed fundraiser and required the reader to download the attachment to see the invitation. Anyone who would’ve downloaded the attachment would’ve released malware and other viruses into their computer, thereby granting access to the power company network.

Though no specifics were given about the size of the attack or how successful it was, FireEye believes the attempted hack was a result of the ongoing tension between the US and North Korea.

According to the Internet security firm, the hacks were nothing more than “early-stage reconnaissance,” perhaps to detect potential weaknesses or exploitable areas within the systems. They did not believe the hacks were part of an “imminent disruptive” attack.

FireEye stated that North Korea is no stranger to cyber attacks: “North Korea linked hackers are among the most prolific nation-state threats, targeting not only the US and South Korea but the global financial system and nations worldwide.”

They went on to say North Korea’s attitude about hacking other nations is similar to how they treat their own nuclear program, ignoring the consequences or sanctions. “Their motivations vary from economic enrichment to traditional espionage to sabotage, but all share the hallmark of an ascendant cyber power willing to violate international norms with little regard for potential blowback,” FireEye stated.

Former chief of counterintelligence at the FBI, C. Frank Figliuzzi, said North Korea’s cyber attacks are a growing threat. “This is a signal that North Korea is a player in the cyber-intrusion field and it is growing in its ability to hurt us.”

This probing of US electric companies comes shortly after announcements that North Korea allegedly stole classified military documents from South Korea. Among those documents was information on how to assassinate Kim Jong-un and the other leaders of the DPRK, such as known hiding locations, movements, and how to disrupt their security efforts, among other things.

It is believed that hackers working with North Korea attempted to hack into US power companies. Do you think they will succeed?

Do you think North Korea will succeed in a cyber attack?

Yes
No
Next
This hack occurred September 2016 with at least 235 gigabytes of documents stolen from the Defense Integrated Data Center. It was confirmed that North Korea executed the attack, but it was not revealed what information was taken, although officials claim it was not top classified information that would’ve compromised the US or South Korean military. It was also revealed that not all of the operational plans would’ve been leaked because not all of them were contained on the network.

According to NBC News, the hack itself is not inherently an act of war but could be considered one if it poses a great enough threat to American life, commerce, infrastructure, or other key components of the nation. Considering the hack was a reconnaissance operation and not an attack, it posed little threat and might not be considered an act of war by President Trump.

It does reveal, however, the lengths North Korea may go to disrupt the American way of life and sow doubt and uncertainty. It proves that even if North Korea’s nuclear arsenal is removed, they could still resort to cyber warfare to attack their enemies and spread chaos.


ALERT: The Shock Truth Behind Trump’s N. Korea Threats
October 11, 2017 Mark Prvulovic
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/the-shock-truth-behind-trumps/
The truth regarding international politics is often more complicated than it would first appear. In spite of what the mainstream media would have you believe, President Trump’s comments towards the North Korean leader are actually far more nuanced than you would first believe.

It turns out that the North Koreans hacked South Korean systems and found out how the South Koreans, in consult with the US, had developed a sophisticated plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, according to The Washington Examiner. Furthermore, despite the media’s depiction of him, military intelligence considers Kim to be quite rational. So it appears that Trump’s comments are a way of playing on his paranoia, and encouraging him to act in a rational, self-preserving way.

Recent developments have spun a new light on what appears to be a complex mind-game Trump is playing with the foreign leader. South Korea announced Tuesday that North Korean hackers stole over 235 gigabytes of top-secret South Korean defense files. Included among them was a detailed assassination plot on killing the North Korean leader.

The plan described the preferred methods of getting rid of the leader should conflict break out or be critically imminent. At the same time, the South Korean National Intelligence Service claimed that Kim has become obsessed with his personal security. Reducing public appearances, moving at dawn, and using alternative cars all seem to be signs that the leader is becoming paranoid for his life.

The most interesting correlation is between the leader’s recent saber-rattling, which escalated this year, and the theft of the decapitation plan around the same time. Many experts have begun speculating that this behavior is a sign that Kim is becoming scared for his life.

Although news outlets were informed of this development recently, President Trump was likely to have been aware of this development since he entered office in January. If so, that explains why Trump has been so specific in his attacks on Kim.

In a way, the President is playing mind games with the young leader, brandishing an intellectual knife in his mind and wearing the man down mentally.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said that Kim has shown a “rational response” to recent US posture developments, leading him to conclude that his actions are indeed premeditated and deliberate – a stark contrast to the media’s depiction of him as a raving madman.

Knowing that Trump would have most likely been briefed on this intelligence assessment by Pompeo, it’s not hard to see that even Trump’s tweeting might be a deliberate tactic to demoralize Kim, playing on his paranoia and influencing him to chose his own survival instead of escalating his nuclear missile policy – which would be a death sentence.

Disclosures suggest that Trump’s comments about Kim are designed to elicit a specific response. Do you think Trump understands Kim?

Does Trump understand the way Kim Jong-un thinks?

Yes
No
Next
If so, then it shows a nuanced, strategic side of the President that the mainstream media would never willingly show to the public.

Trump has previously called the North Korean leader a “little rocket man” that “is on a suicide mission for himself.” These constant comments, first regarded as little more than an aspect of Trump’s outgoing personality, have taken on a much greater meaning now that we see the full context of the situation.

Whether or not Kim will end up caving to the mental pressure is yet to be seen. If he did, it would be a masterfully orchestrated, if not an anticlimactic resolution to a problem that has hounded the region for many decades.

JUST IN: Ex-CIA Official Makes Terrifying N. Korea Announcement – Please Pray
October 9, 2017 Ben Baker
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/cia-nkorea/?utm_campaign=CNA_20170715&utm_medium=automated&bt_alias=
Relations between North Korea and the United States remain tense as diplomatic efforts and pressure on North Korea’s allies to affect a policy change out of Pyongyang are being exhausted.

The Daily Caller reported that a former CIA official made a terrifying statement regarding the effort to resolve North Korea’s hostility toward the US and the West. According to Bruce Klingner, former CIA Deputy Division Chief for Korea, “Military options are increasing, not decreasing.”

Recently North Korea launched two missiles over Japan in a test of their intermediate-range ballistic missiles. This act prompted President Trump to issue a dire threat to North Korea if it continued to behave aggressively.

According to The Daily Caller, President Trump made it clear at the UN General Assembly that North Korea was a threat to not only other nations, but its own people: “The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes. No one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea.”

He stated that if need be, the US was prepared to annihilate Kim Jong-un and his regime. “No nation on earth in seeing this bad of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles. The United States is a nation of great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

According to The Mirror, Kim Jong-un perceived this statement as a declaration of war: “Now that Trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of the eyes of the world and made the ferocious declaration of a war in history that he would destroy the DPRK, we will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding highest level of hard line counter measure in history.”

One of the countermeasures North Korea has threatened is to shoot down any American military aircraft that flies too close.

Kim Jong-un declared that he felt like a man on a mission and wouldn’t stop until his goals were realized. “His remarks… have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last,” Kim said.

Despite these chilling statements, North Korea’s despotic government has been quiet as of late, allowing the US to exploit other means to engage with the hostile dictator. In an economic move, the US has been affecting North Korea’s economy by exerting pressure on China to cut their ally off until they comply with international sanctions.

Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, said on her Twitter feed that the UN was united to impose sanctions on North Korea: “The UN Security Council unanimously adopted the strongest sanctions ever against North Korea: #15-0”

According to Bruce Klingner, former CIA Deputy Division Chief for Korea, “Military options are increasing, not decreasing.” Does such a conflict seem more likely?

Is military action against North Korea looking more likely?

Yes
No
Next
Yet, according to Klingner, this has not detracted from the real threat of a military response by either country to the growing tensions. He believes that if things aren’t resolved soon, it may be in the US’ best interest to pre-emptively strike North Korea.

Failing to do so could lead to war, which could have disastrous consequences, Klingner believes. “When I was in government; when we ran war games, the estimates were hundreds of thousands of casualties, and that was before we thought North Korea had nuclear weapons,” he said.

While war should definitely be a last resort–and pre-emptive military action should be a close second–the US may be running out of time and options. Hopefully, this matter is resolved peacefully and the North Korean threat can be minimized to acceptable levels. The alternative is not good for the world.


BREAKING: General Mattis Gives Shock “North Korea” Order To Military Members
October 10, 2017 Ben Baker
https://www.christiannewsalerts.com/mattis-north-korea/?utm_source=Boomtrain&utm_medium=NS1&utm_campaign=
The world waits with bated breath to see whether North Korea will behave aggressively, the US will be forced to deploy a pre-emptive military effort because of North Korea’s actions, or whether diplomacy will work.

According to Politico, the US isn’t afraid of utilizing the military option if necessary. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told military leaders, “Now what does the future hold? Neither you nor I can say, so there’s one thing the US Army can do, and that is we have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our president can employ if needed.”

Concerns have increased in the silence following the recent spat between President Trump and dictator Kim Jong-un. According to NBC News, Trump announced: “The United States has great strength and patience but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

CNBC reported that North Korea’s Foreign Minister, Ri Yon Ho, responded to Trump’s bold words by saying: “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country.”

Trump responded to the Foreign Minister’s statement on Twitter, reiterating the doom awaiting North Korea if they didn’t cease their actions: “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man [Kim], they won’t be around much longer!”

On Thursday, Trump informed Mattis and other military officials that he wanted military options at a “much faster pace.” When speaking to reporters, Trump suggested that this relative quiet might be “the calm before the storm.”

Yesterday, Trump tweeted out that diplomacy hasn’t worked in the past with North Korea: “Our country has been unsuccessfully dealing with North Korea for 25 years, giving billions of dollars & getting nothing. Policy didn’t work!”

Mattis assured that the US is still pursuing the diplomatic option, they just aren’t taking military action off the table: “Right now it is a diplomatically led, economic sanctions-buttressed effort to try to turn North Korea off this path.”

One of these diplomatic efforts was an executive order Trump signed allowing him the expanded authority to go after any persons or institutions that engage in business with North Korea.

Between Trump’s efforts and the UN’s imposed sanctions on North Korea, China–North Korea’s ally–directed its central bank to have all China-based banks effectively cut North Korea off.

Tensions with North Korea are on the rise. Are you prepared for what could happen?

POLL: Should The US Be Prepared For Defensive Warfare With North Korea?

Yes
No
Next
Mattis also reminded everyone of the UN’s pursuit for a diplomatic resolution and that they acknowledge the serious threat North Korea poses. “How many times have you seen the UN Security Council vote unanimously, now twice if a row, to impose sanctions on North Korea?” Mattis asked. “The international community has spoken, but that means the US Army must stand ready.”

Though no one wishes to see North Korea and the US go to war–or the US to pursue a military option–we may not be left with a choice. If North Korea continues to pose a threat to the US and its allies, the only feasible option may be going after Kim before he can do any damage.

Let’s hope the diplomacy and economic pressures on North Korea will see the country abandon their aggressive path.

North Korea is set to test-fire a new "high range" missile capable of hitting the US mainland, a Russian lawmaker claims.

Anton Morozov revealed Pyongyang's plans as he returned from a five-day visit to the hermit state - where the mood is "rather belligerent" - with a Russian delegation.

He claims North Korean officials gave the Russians mathematical calculations showing that the intercontinental ballistic missile could reach targets on the US west coast.

It comes just days after a CIA official revealed that Kim Jong-un's regime could launch a new missile or carry out another nuclear test next week.

Morozov told the Russian state-run news agency RIA Novosti: "They are preparing for a new test of a longer-range missile.

"They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the western coast of the United States."

He described the mood in Pyongyang as "rather belligerent", adding: "In the near future, they are going to carry out, as far as we understand, yet another launch of a missile, but this time with a longer range."

He was part of a Russian delegation which made an official visit to Pyongyang this week to discuss bilateral cooperation with the Russian ambassador to North Korea, the English-language state-run Sputnik news agency reported.

Morozov, a member of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs, has called for a prompt intervention in the situation on the Korean peninsula to avoid a new war.

Earlier this week, Yong Suk Lee, the deputy assistant director of the CIA's Korea Mission Center, revealed that North Korea's latest provocation could come on Tuesday when it celebrates the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea.

Many past nuclear or missile tests have coincided with mass public celebrations.

A test would coincide with Japan's lower house election campaigns and the Columbus Day holiday in the US. Given the time difference, it would be Monday in the US if a missile or nuclear test occurs in Pyongyang on Tuesday morning.

Despite UN sanctions, North Korea has recently carried out an underground nuclear test and test-fired two missiles over northern Japan, with both crashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times op-ed columnist who recently returned to Pyongyang for a visit, wrote that North Korea is galvanising its citizens to expect a nuclear war with the US.

Billboards in the capital show missiles destroying the US Capitol in Washington, DC, he added.

Pyongyang resident Mun Hyok-myong, a teacher, told Mr Kristof during a visit to an amusement park: “If we have to go to war, we won’t hesitate to totally destroy the United States."

A new report by the website 38 North, which monitors Pyongyang's activities, has suggested that a North Korean nuclear attack on Seoul and Tokyo could kill more than two million people and injure nearly eight million others.

North Korea's state-run news agency, KCNA, reported on Friday that the country's National Peace Committee (NPC) has called on the US to pull its troops out of South Korea.

US forces have been stationed in the South since the Korean War.

The committee said the 64-year-old South Korea-US Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) was an "aggressive and traitorous war document" allowing the US to control the South's army, South Korea's state-run Yonhap News Agency reported.

The NPC said the agreement is a symbol of "US military occupation" and it has "reduced South Korea into advanced base for a nuclear war".

It added that South Koreans cannot evade a nuclear war as long as US troops are based in their country.

The North and South are technically still at war, as the conflict in the 1960s ended with an armistice and no peace treaty has ever been signed.

This news comes amid a report that states North Korea has a terrifying biological weapons programme capable of wiping out tens of thousands of troops and civilians if war breaks out.

Experts fear the rogue state has developed and stored more than a dozen killer agents that could be fired into South Korea or further if Kim Jong-un ’s regime is threatened.

Among the illnesses it may be able to deliver by missile, bomb or plane-sprayer are Anthrax, Smallpox, the Plague, Botulism, Cholera, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Dystentry and Typhus.

Bacillus bacteria

There are even many of the killer bio-agents have been tested on human beings, whilst Kim Jong-un’s laboratory technicians are forced to work without protection.

Researchers at intelligence company AMPLYFI teamed up with Harvard in America to harvest the dark web for information about Pyongyang’s 50 year-old bio-weapons programme.

Using an artificial intelligence tool called DataVoyant researchers mined 840,000 websites that contained biological references and 23,000 were found to have links to North Korea.

In their report called North Korea’s Biological Weapons Program, researchers also say image analysis of Pyongyang’s Bio-technical Institute suggests it could “produce military-style batches of biological weapons - specifically anthrax.”

It continues: “The most recent statement by the South Korean Defence Ministry is that ‘North Korea has 13 types of biological weapons which it can weaponise withing ten days.

“And anthrax and smallpox are the likely agents it would deploy."

Meanwhile, the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded on Friday to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which is seeking a ban on nuclear arms.

Berit Reiss-Andersen, the leader of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, said: "We live in a world where the risk of nuclear weapons being used is greater than it has been for a long time.

"Some states are modernising their nuclear arsenals, and there is a real danger that more countries will try to procure nuclear weapons, as exemplified by North Korea."

Beatrice Fihn, the executive director of ICAN, a coalition of grassroots non-government groups, said in response to rising tensions on the Korean peninsula and the war of words between Kim and US President Donald Trump: "Nuclear weapons are illegal. Threatening to use nuclear weapons is illegal.

"Having nuclear weapons, possessing nuclear weapons, developing nuclear weapons, is illegal, and they need to stop."

North Korea's nuclear and missile tests in 2017
February 11: New medium-range Pukguksong-2 (KN-15) ballistic missile launched into Sea of Japan, travelling 310 miles.

March 6: Five medium-range Scud-er ballistic missiles launched into the Sea of Japan, with four travelling more than 600 miles.

March 21: Mobile-launched missile explodes moments after launch in failed test.

April 4: Medium-range KN-17 ballistic missile test-fired into the Sea of Japan, travelling just 34 miles after spinning out of control.

April 15: KN-17 missile explodes almost immediately after take-off.

April 28: KN-17 missile travels just 21 miles before breaking apart in mid-air.

May 14: Missile, believed to be a KN-17, flies about 480 miles before crashing into the Sea of Japan.

May 21: Another KN-17 test, with the projectile travelling more than 300 miles into the same sea.

May 29: A short-range ballistic missile was tracked for six minutes before landing in the sea.

June 8: Anti-ship missiles fired into the Sea of Japan.

July 4: North Korea tests its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), a Hwasong-14 which crashed into the Sea of Japan after travelling about 580 miles.

July 28: Another ICBM is test-fired, flying 621 miles for 45 minutes - the longest flight of a ballistic missile fired by North Korea - before crashing into the sea inside Japan's Economic Exclusion Zone.

August 26: Three short-range ballistic missiles are test-fired, with the second blowing up within seconds and the third failing in flight.

August 29: North Korea fires a KN-17 over northern Japan - sparking evacuations and air raid sirens in towns - and it travels 1,667 miles before breaking apart.

September 3: Pyongyang carries out its sixth test of a nuclear weapon, claiming it was a hydrogen bomb, causing a 6.3-magnitude earthquake. Experts say the device was up to eight times more powerful than the bomb the US dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

September 15: Another ballistic missile - the 14th missile test of the year - is fired over northern Japan, this time flying for about 2,300 miles before hitting the sea.

New report reveals 2 million may die if North Korea nukes Seoul and Tokyo

New report reveals 2 million may die if North Korea nukes Seoul and Tokyo
As tensions rise on the Korean Peninsula, a new report has estimated that, should North Korea deploy its nuclear arsenal on Seoul and Tokyo, the death toll could be up to 2.1 million, with around 8 million injured. Over the past few months, the stand-off, with Pyongyang on one side, and the US and its allies on the other, has been escalating, with belligerent rhetoric and provocative military posturing on both sides. Amid these tensions, a study by 38 North – a site on North Korean affairs run by Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies – has revealed the potential consequences of a

nuclear strike launched by the North on its neighbors. The report’s author, Michael J. Zagurek Jr., notes that “history is replete with ‘rational actors’ grossly miscalculating, especially in crisis situations,” and that another nuclear or missile test might trigger a hostile reaction from the United States, prompting a nuclear strike from the North Korean regime. Estimating that Pyongyang has a nuclear arsenal of 25 warheads, Zagurek calculated what would happen if leader Kim Jong-un decides to launch all of them at Seoul and Tokyo, since both Japan and South Korea are key US allies.

2 million may die if North Korea nukes Seoul and Tokyo – report

As tensions rise on the Korean Peninsula, a new report has estimated that, should North Korea deploy its nuclear arsenal on Seoul and Tokyo, the death toll could be up to 2.1 million, with around 8 million injured.
Over the past few months, the stand-off, with Pyongyang on one side, and the US and its allies on the other, has been escalating, with belligerent rhetoric and provocative military posturing on both sides. Amid these tensions, a study by 38 North – a site on North Korean affairs run by Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies – has revealed the potential consequences of a nuclear strike launched by the North on its neighbors.

The report’s author, Michael J. Zagurek Jr., notes that “history is replete with ‘rational actors’ grossly miscalculating, especially in crisis situations,” and that another nuclear or missile test might trigger a hostile reaction from the United States, prompting a nuclear strike from the North Korean regime.

Estimating that Pyongyang has a nuclear arsenal of 25 warheads, Zagurek calculated what would happen if leader Kim Jong-un decides to launch all of them at Seoul and Tokyo, since both Japan and South Korea are key US allies. Accounting for missile defense systems such as the THAAD, deployed in South Korea, and the Aegis Ashore ABM, due to be installed in Japan, he said that “not all 25 North Korean nuclear missile warheads will detonate on their targets.”

Zagurek gave estimates of the casualty rates from 20 percent, 50 percent and 80 percent of the missiles hitting their targets. According to the highest estimates, 2.1 million people would be killed and another 7.7 million wounded.

Japan is the only country to have had two atomic bombs detonate on its territory as an act of war. On August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber dropped the world’s first deployed nuclear weapon over Hiroshima, Japan, killing 80,000 and obliterating 90 percent of the city. This was followed three days later by another bomb dropped on Nagasaki, which killed another 40,000. Earlier that year, Tokyo was firebombed by American planes, leading to 100,000 civilian deaths.

However, as the report notes, population density in metropolitan Japan and South Korea is a lot higher than it was several decades ago. Also, the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had a strength of around 15-25 kilotons, while the device tested by North Korea in September had a likely strength of 108-205 kilotons.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula is being aggravated by both North Korea and the US and its allies. Pyongyang has carried out a number of nuclear tests and missile launches, while the United States has continued to carry out joint exercises with South Korea and Japan while escalating its rhetoric against Pyongyang.

Russia and China have proposed a ‘double-freeze’ solution, in which the US ceases its drills with South Korea in exchange for the North suspending its weapons programs. The US, however, has not accepted the proposal, saying it has every right to carry out exercises with its allies.

Moscow and Beijing have repeatedly stated that the crisis can be resolved only through peaceful means.

On Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin also pointed out that should someone decide to attack North Korea in “a disarming strike,” the aftermath of it would be uncertain as “no one knows for sure what is where.”

Washington earlier said that it would only talk to Pyongyang about bringing back Americans who are being detained in North Korea.

“Beyond that, there will be no conversations with North Korea at this time,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders stated.

North Korea accuses US of declaring war
North Korea’s foreign minister on Monday accused President Donald Trump of declaring war, saying that gives the rogue regime the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers. Pyongyang could target planes even when they are not flying in North Korean airspace, Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told
reporters in New York. “The whole world should clearly remember it was the U.S. who first declared war on our country,” he said. “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country,” he added.

North Korea's foreign minister on Monday accused President Donald Trump of declaring war, saying that gives the rogue regime the right to shoot down U.S. strategic bombers.

Pyongyang could target planes even when they are not flying in North Korean airspace, Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York.

"The whole world should clearly remember it was the U.S. who first declared war on our country," he said.

"Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country," he added.

On Saturday, American bombers flew in international airspace east of North Korea in a symbolic show of military force.

The comments come amid an escalation of rhetoric between Pyongyang and Washington as the international community tries to end North Korean nuclear and missile programs. Trump's first appearance at the United Nations General Assembly last week prompted a string of harsh warnings and threats.

Later Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said "we have not declared war on North Korea," calling the suggestion "absurd."

It culminated Saturday in Trump saying the North Korean regime "won't be around much longer" if Ri "echoes thoughts" of dictator Kim Jong Un, whom Trump maligned as "Little Rocket Man."

Ri claimed on Monday that the comment was a declaration of war. In response, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning said the Defense Department would give Trump options to "deal with North Korea" if provocations continue.

Ri also inflamed tensions following Trump's defiant remarks to the U.N. last week. On Saturday, he called Trump "President Evil" and claimed that economic sanctions will not deter Pyongyang's pursuit of nuclear weapons and a "balance of power with the U.S."

Trump on Tuesday said the U.S. would have "no choice but to totally destroy North Korea" if it is forced to defend itself or its allies. The president and his top advisors have repeatedly said they could take military action in response to a string of missile tests, but prefer a diplomatic resolution.

On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order expanding his authority to target people and institutions that do business with North Korea. He hopes the measure will help to cut off Pyongyang's funding sources for its nuclear and missile programs.

The central bank in China — North Korea's only major ally — also told its banks to strictly implement U.N. sanctions.

The American sanctions followed unanimous economic sanctions packages imposed by the U.N. Security Council.

Trump has said he supports the "complete denuclearization" of North Korea.
