Trump says if threatened, US will 'totally destroy' North Korea

1396/6/28 | 18:47
UNITED NATIONS: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea unless Pyongyang backs down from its nuclear challenge, mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “rocket man” on a suicide mission. It was Trump’s most direct threat to attack North Korea for belligerent acts that have included launching ballistic missiles over Japan and conducting underground nuclear tests. His comments rattled the world leaders gathered before him in the green-marbled UN General Assembly hall, where minutes earlier ...

Is China using North Korea to break US's Super power's myth?

1396/6/26 | 18:47
  The firing by North Korea of yet another missile that overflew the Japanese mainland on Friday 15th September has ratcheted up tensions yet again.  While few days ago a hydrogen bomb was detonated in an underground tunnel and pictures suggest that the device is small enough to fit on top of one of the missiles currently having the sea as their target.   Given the impermeability of the regime in North Korea, it is difficult to know whether the leader, Kim Jong-Un, is of sound mind or otherwise. There appears to be an emerging ...

We will sink Japan and turn US to 'ashes and darkness', says North Korea

1396/6/25 | 18:47
North Korea has threatened to sink Japan and said the US should be “beaten to death like a rabid dog” after the two countries spearheaded fresh UN security council sanctions in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test. The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee, which oversees North Korea’s relations with the outside world, described the UN security council, which passed a new round of sanctions on Monday, as a “tool of evil” in the pay of Washington, and called for it to be broken up.   It is the first time that Pyongyang ...

North Korea's Capital City Cleared Out After Latest Nuclear Tests

1396/6/22 | 18:47
  A Singaporean pilot was shooting aerial footage over North Korea when he noticed something peculiar: Pyongyang, the capital city which is normally home to 2.58 million, was absolutely deserted.   According to the New York Post, the eerie footage was shot by 41-year-old Aram Pan and was originally supposed to be part of his larger project, DPRK360, which aimed to show the totalitarian regime from a “different perspective.”     Pyongyang is the regime's most populous city, home to most of its hustle and bustle; ...

North Korea calls Nikki Haley a “prostitute”

1396/6/20 | 18:47
  North Korea threatens US will pay for Ms Haley’s rhetoric. In response to the US ambassador Nikki Haley’s speech at UN early in the week, North Korean Central News Agency which is run by the government, called her a “prostitute” who is a “blind fool”.       “She is crazily swishing her skirt, playing the flagship role in Trump administration’s hideous sanctions and pressure racket,” said the Korean news agency. “Nikki should be careful with her tongue though she might be a blind fool. The US administration ...

North Korea Threatens EMP Attack On U.S. For First Time Ever

1396/6/19 | 18:47
North Korea has, for the first time, threatened to wage an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack against the United States. Such an attack has the potential to cause catastrophic damage to North America, Canada, the West, and many of its neighbors.     North Korea threatens to wipe out the United States on a regular basis through its state media. However, this is the first time North Korea has openly threatened to use an EMP weapon.   According to the Associated Press, shortly after North Korea launched its sixth nuclear test ...

Trump orders US military to shoot down North Korean missiles

1396/6/18 | 18:47
US President Donald Trump has ordered military to shoot down any missile launched from North Korea and heading toward Guam or the United States. Sources close to the White House national security team told Newsmax on Thursday the order was issued to the US military in the wake of last month's threat by North Korea to fire a ballistic missile toward Guam, a US territory.  "The threat provoked the president," one source told the news agency. Another national security source told Newsmax that Trump also is considering a new "shoot down" ...

South Koreans Protest Against US Missile Defense Deployment, Dozens Injured

1396/6/17 | 18:47
  Public opposition to the deployment of US THAAD missile defense systems near a South Korean farming village has grown into major protests, with demonstrators coming out in force after the announcement the government was letting the US install four additional launchers.   The THAAD are installed at a former golf course, and in an area that was historically very pro-military, because the previous government expected them to support the deployment. Instead, locals were opposed to the move, fearing the US presence would make them ...

Can North Korea Target a US City? Experts Say Not Yet

1396/6/16 | 18:47
Very public advances in North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons technology has raised a lot of concerns. Among the biggest concerns is that this might conceivably allow North Korea to target cities on the US mainland, but can they?   Probably not. North Korea will of course claim such capabilities for the deterrent effect it would have, but there remain many questions surrounding North Korea’s ICBM technology, and its ability to accurately deliver a payload that far. North Korea’s successes have included a new nuclear detonation, details ...

US: Many Options for ‘Total Annihilation’ of North Korea

1396/6/13 | 18:47
Just days after saying that he doesn’t believe the US is ever out of diplomatic options, Defense Secretary James Mattis took on a more militaristic tone today, saying that the US may not be looking toward the “total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea,” but that the US has many options to do that.   Mattis made the comments after a White House meeting, which he said was called because President Trump wanted to be briefed on his “many military options” for attacking North Korea. He added that the US will use a “massive ...

North Korea claims its 'hydrogen bomb' can 'wipe out the whole US territory'

1396/6/13 | 18:47
  North Korea has declared that its recent nuclear test has given it the capability to "wipe out the whole territory of the US all at once".   The bombastic claim was made in a commentary released by state-run media on Tuesday, six days after what North Korea claims was a successful test detonation of a hydrogen bomb. The statement repeated the regime's insistence that the blast was of a miniaturised hydrogen bomb and that the nation's scientists had achieved a "new high state" in the development of defensive nuclear weapons.   "The ...

North Korea can turn South into desert without using nukes

1396/6/9 | 18:47
  Solving the Korean Peninsula crisis through diplomacy is in everyone’s interests, geopolitical experts have told RT, citing potential scenarios of South Korea being turned “into a desert,” or other states, not directly involved, being severely affected by a “stray missile.”     If the current situation in East Asia is not resolved, a number of countries “will be living under a threat of a nuclear volcano erupting,” Russian diplomat and an expert in Asian studies, professor Georgy Toloraya told   “Everyone ...

Threat and intimidations: US turns Pakistan into another North Korea

1396/6/7 | 18:47
Days after the White House accused Pakistan of continuing to harbor terrorists on its soil, the top US commander in Afghanistan claimed that the United States “knows the Afghan Taliban leadership is in Quetta and Peshawar”.       The allegation elicited a sharp reaction from Islamabad, which has been fuming over the US president’s harsh remarks, with top government ministers calling upon the US to stop blaming Pakistan for its failure in Afghanistan.   In sharp response the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal told ...

North Korea fires missile over Japan

1396/6/7 | 18:47
North Korea has launched an unidentified missile which directly passed over Japan, says NHK.   The Japanese government activated its J-Alert warning system after North Korea fired an unidentified missile early Tuesday morning. The North Korean missile passed over Japanese territory around 6:06am local time. The Japanese military did not attempt to shoot down the missile but warned people to take precautions, Reuters reports citing local media. The Japanese government announced the missile fell into the Pacific ocean just 14 minutes after ...

US aid to Egypt cut due to North Korea links

1396/6/5 | 18:47
  The US State Department has hinted that the decision to cut and freeze aid to Egypt may be because of Cairo’s cooperation with the government of North Korea.     This was revealed in statements by State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert during Thursday’s press briefing in Washington. When asked whether the aid issue was related to Egypt’s agreements with North Korea, Nauert replied, “We have conversations with Egypt and many other countries around the world about the need to isolate the DPRK [Democratic People’s ...

Russian nuclear-capable bombers fly near North Korea amid US drills

1396/6/3 | 18:47
Russia has sent nuclear-capable bombers near North Korea amid an ongoing military exercise by the United States and South Korea in the region and at a time of heightened tensions over North Korea’s intensified missile activity. Japanese and South Korean militaries said Thursday that they had scrambled fighter jets to escort Russia’s Tupolev-95MS bombers after they flew over the Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Japan, the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea. Russia’s Defense Ministry confirmed the bombers had been dispatched to the area and said ...

Nuclear apocalypse: Trump and Kim should not hold the world hostage

1396/6/1 | 18:47
  Not too far away from Seattle, Washington there are eight ballistic-missile submarines carrying the world’s large shipments of nuclear weapons.     The 560-foot-long black submarines are docked at the Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, hauling what is described by Rick Anderson in a recent Los Angeles Times article as “the largest concentration of deployed nuclear weapons in the US.”     “If it were a sovereign nation,” Anderson wrote, quoting government estimates, “Washington State would be the third-largest ...

US Could Drop Neutron Bomb on North Korea

1396/5/25 | 18:47
  “If we have one [neutron bomb] that is what’s going to be used, that is what Trump is hinting at,” radio host Michael Savage said in response to President Donald Trump’s threatening to unleash “fury and fire… never seen before” on North Korea’s Kim Jung Un, and his doubling down saying the threat wasn’t “tough enough.” Dr. Savage believes the U.S. may still have reconstructed neutron bombs despite President George H. W. Bush once having them deconstructed, and described the situation as a “perfect storm for war.” “My ...

Rule of stupid: Would Trump push the world into a another nuclear war?

1396/5/23 | 18:47
  It would be nothing more than a childish shouting match if Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un weren’t volatile heads of states capable of unleashing nuclear fury. Usually, with anybody else in the White House, occasional bouts of N Korea-specific tension are periodic headaches, nothing more.     Threats coming from Pyongyang, as analysts put it, are ‘always the second half of a sentence’. Yet Trump’s response is already on a marked tangent from his predecessors. That can be said about most of US foreign policy, of course, ...

Lamenting Musharraf for N-technology disclosure: Did Pakistan convey a message to US?

1396/5/22 | 18:47
  The disclosure made by retired General Pervez Musharraf in his 2006 autobiography that Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan transferred sensitive nucl­ear material to North Korea had come as a big embarrassment to the country, an official of the Foreign Office said on Friday at a meeting of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee.   The disclosure had forced the Foreign Office on the defensive and left it with no choice but to regurgitate the standard response that Pakistan was firmly against nuclear proliferation, the additional secretary said.   Pervez ...

State news says China will side with North Korea if USA attacks

1396/5/22 | 18:47
A state-run newspaper has argued in an editorial that China should remain neutral if North Korea attacks the U.S., but intervenes forcefully if the U.S. strikes first.   The widely read state-run Global Times, published by the ruling Communist Party’s official People’s Daily, wrote in an editorial that Beijing is not able to persuade either Washington or Pyongyang to back down.   “It needs to make clear its stance to all sides and make them understand that when their actions jeopardize China’s interests, China will respond ...

Guam Fliers Aim to Prepare Islanders for Nuclear War

1396/5/21 | 18:47
The sudden and stark possibility of a nuclear war has reached the island of Guam. The US territory, which is hosting the air base from which US bombers would likely depart to attack North Korea, is also liable to be a target for North Korean retaliation. The territory’s Office of Civil Defense has been handing out fact sheets with useful tips for the potentially incipient nuclear conflict, advising locals to hide in concrete or brick structures, ideally underground, and not to look directly at any nuclear flashes. The flier goes on to ...

Plans to fire missiles at Guam ready by mid-August: North Korea

1396/5/19 | 18:47
North Korea has announced that it will develop plans by mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles at the US territory of Guam. North Korea's state media made the announcement on Thursday, noting that the plans will be presented to the country's leader Kim Jong-un who will decide on whether to launch the missiles. "The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA (Korean People's Army) will cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan," said the report, citing KPA Commander General Kim Rak-gyom. "They ...

Who on Earth has more nukes?

1396/5/19 | 18:47
Nine countries are believed to have nuclear arsenals with the US and Russia on top of the list with an estimated 7,000 nuclear warheads each and North Korea at the bottom probably with less than 20, if any.   How come Kim Jong-un’s nuclear weapons launch tests have become more dangerous than Donald Trump’s arsenal of about 2,000 deployed warheads? North Korea has threatened to attack the American Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, after US President Donald Trump threatened to hit the country “with fire and fury like the world ...

North Korea threatens to strike US territory after Trump’s warning

1396/5/18 | 18:47
North Korea says it is "carefully examining" a plan to strike the American Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, after US President Donald Trump threatened to hit the country “with fire and fury.” A spokesman for the Korean People's Army said on Tuesday the strike plan will be "put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment" once North Korean leader Kim Jong-un decided about it, the North's state-run KCNA news agency reported. The North Korean military said in a separate statement that it could carry out a pre-emptive ...

Winds of War: Why is US Ordering Its Citizens Out of North Korea?

1396/5/14 | 18:47
  All American citizens are to leave North Korea by September 1, according to a statement by the US State Department obtained by RIA Novosti.    Even though the decision has raised fears of a possible military showdown between Washington and Pyongyang, many experts still doubt that the two will actually come to blows.     Influential US Senator Lindsay Graham told NBC on Tuesday that President Trump was ready for a military solution to North Korea’s nuclear program if Kim Jong-un obtains a nuclear-tipped missile ...

SUCH TV | Trump signs sanctions bill targeting Russia, Iran, North Korea

1396/5/11 | 18:47
US President Donald Trump has reluctantly signed into law a bill by Congress that imposes new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, according to the White House. Trump had signed the bill behind closed doors and away from the cameras, two White House sources said Wednesday. In signing it, Trump avoided the humiliating prospect of Congress overriding his veto, the White House sources said. The president had privately opposed the measures and his aides had lobbied against them. Congress passed the new sanctions package last ...

As 75 percent of Americans fear ‘Major war’ under Trump

1396/4/31 | 18:47
A vast majority of Americans are concerned about the United States’ potential involvement in a new major war—but most think military action is the wrong way to go about approaching international threats, according to an NBC poll released Tuesday. The survey finds that more than three-quarters of citizens are worried about a significant military conflict touching off—up 10 points from 66 percent in February. Much of the anxiety appears to stem from reports of North Korea’s potential nuclear capabilities; 41 percent believe that Kim Jong ...

US Forces Could Have Killed Kim Jong-un on July 4 But Didn’t Take the Shot

1396/4/22 | 18:47
When North Korea tested its first successful intercontinental ballistic on July 4, US forces had a “very easy shot at killing Kim and didn’t,” Stratfor Asia Pacific consultant Rodger Baker told Business Insider.     The US military generally knows when North Korean missile tests will occur, but of course hasn’t launched a pre-emptive strike to stop one. But it’s “unusual” that the US would allow it to leak that Kim could have been eliminated and wasn’t, Baker explained.   The consultant believes it’s possible ...

How ‘isolated’ North Korea managed to build an ICBM that could reach Alaska

1396/4/18 | 18:47
North Korea is a country in isolation, a place where most citizens don't have access to the Internet or the means to travel abroad. In 2010, the New York Times described the country as a “ ‘hermit kingdom,’ so poor that there is almost no supply of concrete, bricks or window glass. People suffer shortages of rice, gasoline and even underwear.” And yet. It’s been able to expand its weapons technology at an astounding rate. Earlier this week, it test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that experts say could have reached Alaska. ...

Options Prepared for Trump to Attack North Korea

1396/4/9 | 18:47
The possibility of the US unilaterally attacking North Korea was a major concern just a couple of months prior, and while it’s dropped out of the headlines, the risk of a US attack hasn’t really gone anywhere, with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying that a new set of options have been created for President Trump to respond to North Korea.   And when they say options, what they really mean are plans for military attacks, as McMaster confirmed every single one of the options prepared includes the US attacking North Korea ...

US Under Pressure to Accept North Korea Nuclear Freeze Deal

1396/4/2 | 18:47
  North Korea has reportedly approached both South Korea’s new president, and China’s foreign ministry on making a proposed deal, in which North Korea would agree to a temporary freeze of all nuclear and conventional missile tests, in return for the US reducing its military footprint on the Korean Peninsula.     Multiple variations on this theme have been proposed, according to those familiar with the situation, over the past several months, and both China and South Korea have brought versions to the US for consideration. ...

Another slap in Trump's face: Pyongyang test-launched another ballistic missile

1396/2/24 | 18:47
  North Korea has fired an “unidentified projectile,” which is thought to be a ballistic missile, says South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.     "North Korea launched a ballistic missile at 5:27 am this morning in Pyongan Province," said the South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff. It added that analysis is currently being carried out on the projectile which flew for around 700 kilometers. Following the launch, Yoshihide Suga, Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary, stressed that it was a violation of UN resolutions and that Japanese ...

Israel and N. Korea exchange threats

1396/2/16 | 18:47
  Last month Israeli defense minister Avigdor Liberman, a Zionfascist and Russian gangster at the Meir Dagan Conference of Strategic Affairs in Netanya identified North Korea, which is 5,000m away, as the greatest threat to Israel. Islamic Republic was second followed by Islamic resistance groups Hamas and Hizbullah.     “Pyongyang has crossed the red line with its nuclear tests,” claimed Liberman. I’m sure the Zionist filth is aware of the fact that he has over 240 nuclear warhead under his fat butts – Kim Jong-un ...

CIA attempted to kill N.Korean leader using bio-chemical weapon: Pyongyang

1396/2/16 | 18:47
North Korea has blamed US spy agency, CIA, and South Korean intelligence of attempting to kill its leader, Kim Jong-un, with a bio-chemical weapon.     The North’s Ministry of State Security released a statement saying “the last-ditch effort” of US “imperialists” and the South had gone “beyond the limits”. “The Central Intelligence Agency of the US and the Intelligence Service (IS) of South Korea, hotbed of evils in the world, hatched a vicious plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK and those acts have been put ...

Trump, Putin discuss Syria, North Korea, Middle East in phone call

1396/2/13 | 18:47
US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed working together to end the violence in Syria on Tuesday in their first phone call since US air strikes in Syria strained US-Russian relations. The White House said the two leaders agreed that “all parties must do all they can to end the violence” in Syria and that Trump and Putin also discussed working together against the militants throughout the Middle East. “The conversation was a very good one, and included the discussion of safe, or de-escalation, zones to ...

In the Face of Washington's Threats, North Korea Readies Another Nuclear Test

1396/2/12 | 18:47
      Despite worldwide calls for denuclearization, North Korea has said it will continue testing nuclear weapons in the face of what it sees as provocation from the US.     On Monday Pyongyang declared that it was ready to conduct its sixth nuclear test whenever leadership deemed appropriate, as the North Korean capital continues trading shows of force with Washington.    Although tensions between Washington and Pyongyang looked as though they may ease somewhat in recent weeks, as the US considered ...

US warship approaches North Korea after 2nd failed missile test

1396/2/10 | 18:47
A US warship is heading towards North Korea after Kim Jong Un carried out yet another failed missile launch. The USS Carl Vinson, US super aircraft carrier, was spotted sailing north offshore Nagasaki, Japan on Saturday local time, in a show of force after North Korea’s latest test-fire flop. A US official said the ballistic missile, thought to be a mid-range KN-17, was fired from a location in the South Pyeongan province in the early hours of Saturday morning local time. It blew up over land before it ever reached its target of the Sea of ...

North Korea ballistic missile test fails: South, US

1396/2/9 | 18:47
North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile from a location north of the capital Pyongyang, but it exploded shortly after liftoff, the US and South Korean militaries say. A US government source told Reuters that based on initial indications, the missile test was unsuccessful. Citing the South Korean military, Yonhap news agency also reported that the missile exploded a few seconds into flight. Dave Benham, a spokesman for US Pacific Command, also said the missile did not leave North Korean territory after launch, which he said took place ...

US says 'major conflict' with North Korea possible, China warns of danger of escalation

1396/2/8 | 18:47
US President Donald Trump said a “major, major conflict” with North Korea was possible over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, while China said the situation on the Korean peninsula could escalate or slip out of control. Trump, speaking to Reuters on Thursday, said he wanted to resolve the crisis peacefully, possibly through the use of new economic sanctions, although a military option was not off the table. “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea,” Trump said in an interview ...

North Korea says ready to strike US aircraft carrier

1396/2/4 | 18:47
North Korea said on Sunday it was ready to sink a US aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military might, as two Japanese navy ships joined a US carrier group for exercises in the western Pacific. US President Donald Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula in response to rising tension over the North's nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the United States and its Asian allies. The United States has not specified where the carrier strike group is as it approaches the area. ...

North Korea warns of 'super-mighty pre-emptive strike' as US plans next move

1396/1/31 | 18:47
  North Korean state media warned the United States of a “super-mighty pre-emptive strike” after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the United States was looking at ways to bring pressure to bear on North Korea over its nuclear programme.   US President Donald Trump has taken a hard line with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has rebuffed admonitions from sole major ally China and proceeded with nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of UN Security Council sanctions. The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the ...

North Korea readies for war? Is Kim Jong mulling nuclear option?

1396/1/29 | 18:47
      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 ...

Putin deploys army to North Korea in readiness for World war 3
