North Korea warns ‘nuclear war could break out at any moment’

North Korea warns ‘nuclear war could break out at any moment’ thumbnail

The country’s foreign minister threatened the US with an ‘all out war’ if Trump is reckless enough to use military means’

NORTH Korea has warned “nuclear war could break out at any moment” as the country vowed to test missiles WEEKLY.

The country’s foreign minister threatened the US with an “all out war” if Trump is “reckless enough to use military means” in a terrifying show of force from the hermit state.

Han Song-Ryol said: “We’ll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis.”

Speaking in a press conference from Pyongang, Song-Ryal said it is “crystal clear” Trump is “hell bent” on prompting war with North Korea.

He added: “A nuclear war could break out at any moment on the Korean Peninsula.

“The United States are disturbing the peace and global stability, insisting in a gangster logic.”

It was earlier revealed most of North Korea’s military bases are buried deep underground and in mountains.

Experts says it is the most heavily-fortified country in the world.

Just how big is North Korean threat?

Q. Does North Korea have nuclear weapons?

A.It is thought to have fewer than 20 missiles and four warheads. Each has half the explosive power of US ones in Japan in WW2.

Q.What is different now?

A.The North has been testing missiles which could reach the US. China’s foreign minister has said “conflict could break out at any time”.

Q. Could they really reach Western targets?

A.Not now. But they may have the tech in two or three years.

Q. Could Kim use subs to strike against Britain?

A.A submarine missile launch in 2015 was a flop. Korea’s noisy, diesel subs would also be spotted too easily.

Q. Is the North likely to launch a nuclear attack?

A.No since most experts believe it wouldn’t survive a revenge strike by the more powerful US.

Q. What happens next?

A.National security advisor Lt Gen HR McMaster yesterday said the US and China are working on a range of options on North Korea.

His comments were the first confirmation the powers are working together. The US could make a pre-emptive strike on North missiles.

A huge base used to enrich the uranium for nuclear warheads was first spotted last year.

It had been disguised as an aircraft parts factory inside a mountain next to Panghyon air base.

Dr James Hoare, who worked at the British embassy in Pyongyang, said: “Since the Korean War the North are masters at putting things underground.

“You may know what is on the surface, and you may have suspicions about other places, but there is no guarantee any strike at its nuclear facilities would take it all out. Then you run the danger of provoking them without disarming them.”

    The Sun is more Western propaganda. Other sources say that N.Korea CAN hit the U$ base at Guam, All of the U$ bases in Japan and S.Korea with nukes. He has the ability to take out Seoul and Tokyo. He may not be able to hit the continental U$, but he could destroy the U$ economy. He has enough conventional weapons to destroy S.Korea.

    All this would happen before the U$ could stop it. The tomahawk fiasco in Syria proved that U$ systems are not very good and that evaluation is being generous. The U$ has less than 100,000 troops in S.Korea and Japan. N. Korea has 1,000,000+. 10:1 NOT good odds. N.Korea has nothing to lose, so why not?

    The assault on Kim will be perfect — so we are lead to believe.  The driveling classes profess to have perfect precognition of what will happen when their politically correct Pentagon attempts to regime-change N. Korea:  according to the narrative, the U.S. will be unscathed, only a few South Koreans might die, and everything will be over after 15 minutes.  After which we can return to happy motoring and our narco-dreams, with snowflakes marching against Trump.

    It has been a century and a half since America has known war on its own soil, so for the U.S. populace, war is only a TV video in which the good guys (Americans) always win and get to screw hot chicks as a reward.  It is necessary to keep this myth going in order to maintain the current governmental swamp and its reptiles.

    The possibility of the destruction of South Korea and even another nuclear bombing of Japan cannot be imagined by American TV-hypnotizees.  Nor the possibility that a chain reaction of anti-U.S. movements will start in the rest of the world.  Few seem to realize that the U.S. no longer has the same relative power it had post-WW II.  Multi-billionaire termites and tapeworms such as Sörös have weakened it beyond repair.  Decades of international arrogance and idiocy have made it a despised laughingstock among the nations of Eurasia.

    If the Pentagon provokes even a “small” nuclear war, all bets are off.

  6. Davy on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 5:15 am 

    A war on the Korean peninsula will surely damage the global economy significantly such that the current issues will then become unmanageable. We are currently struggling to maintain minimums of demand. Financially we have excesses and dysfunction of debt with malinvestment bubbles. This is now a broad based global stagflation along with a dollar problem. If you include in that a disrupted East Asian economic contribution you will have supply chains damaged and financial contagions reverberate throughout the global system hurting confidence and trade. South Korea, China, and Japan are too big to fail economies. The US and Europe are completely exposed to these economies at all levels. This will not end well even if it is not a worst case.

    The best case is diplomatic de-escalation and demilitarization of the Korean peninsula. This is unlikely without a defining event like war. The next optimum case is a joint operation by China and the US. The only way NK can be defanged is with the cooperation of the US, South Korea, and China. China will need to be given something for this and that reward should be the withdrawal of the US from the Korean peninsula. This then should be a matter of the local players to sort out with the participation of the rest of the world. It will require huge investments on political cooperation of all to prevent a cascading failure of globalism. A globalism that supports all.

    It is likely the process of defanging NK even in the best of scenarios is going to disrupt the global economy enough to participate an overt global recession. We are currently in a global stagflation and demand reduction. This situation by old normal standards without the moral hazard of repression and artificial liquidity would be considered a global recession. We have bubbles that are paraded as growth when in fact they are malinvestment and non-preforming. When we have an actual real and significant event like a war on the Korean peninsula we will then have the catalyst that takes the global economy into terminal decline that it will never recover from. It is now in terminal decline but on an undulating plateau of growth and decline. What awaits us is only decline.

  7. Cloggie on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 5:18 am 

    North Korea is thought to have a few nukes and perhaps 50 missiles that can reach South-Korea, Japan, China or a US carrier, adventurously parked close near North-Korea. NK cannot reach the US itself. Perhaps in 5-10 years time, but not now. So it makes sense for the US to take the lead now.

    Much as a I am against US meddling in countries like Iraq, Syria and Ukraine (not to mention Europe 1945), North-Korea is different. The idea that many of the 200 nations of the world are going to develop nukes is an absolute nightmare. The larges political entities like the US, Russia, China, EU and India should cooperate to prevent that small upstarts like North-Korea, Pakistan, Iran and not to forget Israel, can acquire/keep these weapons as well and use NK to set an example. This can only be done in cooperation between the US and China (and perhaps Russia). The demand should be complete nuclear disarmament of North-Korea in return for national unification and withdrawal of foreign (read US) troops from Korea and neutral status and a capitalist economy.

  8. makati1 on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 5:41 am 

    Cloggie, N.Korea can destroy S.Korea with conventional weapons. It can do a lot of damage to Japan also. Nukes not needed. Do you know how much of your tech comes from S.Korea? Japan? Taiwan? Maybe you should check. I do not blame N.Korea for wanting nukes when there is a rabid dog like America on the lose. WW3 is more likely to start in Syria between the U$ and the Russians/Iranians.

  9. makati1 on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 5:46 am 

    BTW Cloggie: “North Korea is THOUGHT to have 50 missiles…” Damn, does “thought” limit the real “number” which could be 10 times that? And what if the two North Korean satellites flying over the U$ everyday has an EMP nuke in one or both of them that can be triggered on any overpass, taking out just about every electronic gadget in America including the financial system? The U$ government knows they are there, but not what is in them. Do you?

  10. Cloggie on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 5:48 am 

    N.Korea can destroy S.Korea with conventional weapons.

    SK is protected by US troops. A possible NK mobilization is detected quickly enough to send reinforcements.

  11. Davy on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 6:08 am 

    It is well know that NK is short of food and fuel. They have little to maintain a 1.3MIL man army in battle beyond a week especially if their supply lines and stores are targeted. They have obsolete equipment, infrastructure, and command/control. They are still dangerous but with proper military force applications most of this huge material advantage can be neutralized. They basically have a big army that has little ability but to inflect a one dangerous punch. They have a psychotic leader with little military understanding. The NK military leadership is chosen to heaps praise on any and all of his decisions. That sounds like tunnel vision and this reminds me of an earlier time in Europe. We saw how that ended. Many things can happen in the fog of war but using raw numbers to indicate advantage or disadvantage is more intellectually lazy gaming.

    There are those here who wish a NK victory. Be careful what you wish for. A place like the Philippines will be deeply impacted by disruptions in East Asian. The Philippines is little more than a outsourcing hub for China, South Korea, and Japan. These are the players that will be impacted by a NK war. This war will impact Asia by far the worst but nowhere will escape the fall out. Asians should be coming together against NK and war more than ever now. It is still not too late to end the NK ambitions of being a successful NUK power. For you anti-Americans who hate to hear that, yes, the Americans should be told to leave once this situation has been contained. This will take time but it can be done.

  12. paulo1 on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 7:38 am 

    Good comments, Davy.

    Perhaps China could implement drastic sanctions/embargo which would collapse the Nation of NK? Provided, of course, the US has already agreed to leave SK as part of the agreement. This would be a win win for both China and the US. The Korean penninsula is in China’s sphere of influence, after all. US is a declining empire with no more reason to try and control that part of the world.

    People need to rermember that for all of America’s power, which is unbelieveable and unmatched by any other alliance, it is still being done with ‘borrowed’ money and increasing debt. It can’t continue, indefinitely despite the machinations of the MIC and other puppeteers.

  13. Davy on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 8:21 am 

    I agree with your interpretations Paulo. I also understand the nearness of your BC to this Asian hotspot makes you a stakeholder. This is not going to end well except for diplomatic deescalation and unfortunately that is a distant prospect. Sometimes war is what breaks the ice if it doesn’t kill you in the process.

  14. joe on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 8:39 am 

    Davy, lets not pretend that DPRK has a pigs chance in Mecca of beating the US, we should all be smart enough to know that when Jim Jong Chung opens his mouth, out comes Beijings words.
    So if it comes to a hot war (however unlikely that is), you better believe that many of those whom you think are poorly trained DPRK uniformed soldiers will in fact be well fed sons of the Han people.
    Beijing could get rid of the fat hairdo in baggy trousers tomorrow if they wanted.

  15. Cloggie on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 9:06 am

    You are aware joe, that Muslims don’t eat pork?

    So the chances for a piglet in Mecca aren’t that bad after all.

  16. GregT on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 10:49 am 

    “I also understand the nearness of your BC to this Asian hotspot makes you a stakeholder.”

    Geez Davy, lose the US-centric attitude already. NK is 5000 miles away from BC. Missouri OTOH is 1000 miles away.

    At least look at a map before spouting such blather.

    Crazy fat kid with the devilish grin never grew up, is an absolute dictator and is passionate about nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles. What could possibly go wrong ?

  19. Gartenzwerg on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 10:41 pm 

    This crisis is so manufactured. It came out of nothing. Kim tests nuclear weapons so do the US, however Kim only attacks verbally while the US blows up other countries. Why did the US start this crisis? Maybe to draw attention away from other things? Anyway this is too close to Australia to be comfortable and our government are US lapdogs.

  20. GregT on Tue, 18th Apr 2017 11:19 pm 

    “Crazy fat kid with the devilish grin never grew up, is an absolute dictator and is passionate about nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles. What could possibly go wrong ?”

    Probably not very much, unless he finds the need to defend himself. A first strike by NK would find the entire country vaporized in a matter of minutes. Not exactly rocket science.

  21. joe on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 12:49 am 

    Actually it is rocket science 🙂

  22. GregT on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 1:06 am 

    Thanks for the comic relief joe. 🙂

    The sad reality of the matter is, however, none of the enemies of the US have any intentions of being vaporized, they are acting out of self defence. In a (NWO) unipolar world, self defence will not be tolerated. It’s likely only a matter of time before Kim is murdered, like the millions upon millions before him.

    “The American way of life is not negotiable”

    It is also not sustainable. Mother nature does not negotiate with terrorists.

  23. joe on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 1:13 am 

    Gardenzwerg, how many times did you the media mention the day of the Sun in DPRK, its bigger than Christmas there. Trump chose that time to make his biggest noise about DPRK and send his ‘fleet’ which it seems was another lie.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-39638012

    Trumps armada was a media lie, to make YOU think he could spoil the party.
    The marshmallow tricks America again.

  24. joe on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 1:19 am 

    GregT, Trump’s game is simple, to make people think hes making America Great Again, but what he will do is what the generals want him to do. When president Xi was in mar a largo China was laughing at him cause he promised that he would get them a happy mean and talk business and make them do this and that, instead they enjoyed an opulent meal and watched fake bomb the edges of a syrian airport. Trump just looked weak. South Korea and Japan must be seriously considering whoes side their on by now.

  25. joe on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 1:20 am 

    Meant happy meal

  26. GregT on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 1:33 am 

    Not Trump’s game joe. The establishment is far greater than a mere multi-billionaire real estate tycoon. He either plays their game, or he exits stage left. In the grand scheme of things, Donald is a nobody. And yes joe, both Russia and China are amused, but also very concerned. Washington and Tel Aviv are the epitome of evil, and completely out of control.

    uS media are very infantile, like most amerikans. They act as if leaders of others countries can be put down as if the world is one giant high school clique of cool kids, and weirdos. They mock that fellow endlessly over small physical traits and alleged defects in his personality, none of which, btw have ever been shown to be remotely accurate.

    Remember Ghaddifi? He was endlessly mocked by uS media, including so-called ‘liberal’ types like Jewhn Stuart. Yet when I listened to his speeches at African Union meetings, he came across as highly intelligent and quite rational. This of course, contrasted sharply with the image uS media built of him, one that constantly reinforced the idea to gullible western masses that he was erratic and eccentric to the point of bizarre.

    The uS as we know, had him murdered, least he wear a funny looking robe or hat in public again.

    Irans former President Ahmadinejad, got similar treatment on a regular basis.

    Even President Putin was\is hardly immune. uS media portrays the current leader of NK as, long story short, as a baby-like infant. A fat stupid idiot that only exists as a target for amerikans amusement. And of course, this misleading image is mindlessly echoed by imbeciles like newfie here, who have zero idea if this image he has rattling around his cranium, is remotely grounded in reality.

    One would think by now, intelligent people in the west would tune out uS medias school-yard insults denigrating the intelligence and motivations of leaders of countries the uS seeks to undermine.

    The average IQ in the US is 97 Anon. An extremely tiny minority have any semblance of intelligence. Most human beings respond emotionally, rather than intellectually. Which is why human beings are far easier to control than any other animal.

    @GregT: That is a first to my knowledge.

    Indicating all other animals use interlect to control the herd.. Like for example wilderbeest… 😀

  30. GregT on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 2:45 am 

    “Indicating all other animals use interlect to control the herd.”

    Other animals respond with what we humans refer to as instinct peak. Not intellectual, or emotional. We like to believe that we are intellectually superior, but the reality of the matter is, we cloud our instincts with emotional responses, and our supposed intelligence is leading us down the path to our own extinction, unlike the wildebeest, who does not have any choice in the matter. 🙂

    Kim Jong Un is not “crazy.”  Let us forget that bit of Pentagonal propaganda at the outset.  Yes, he has had many people murdered, including his own close relatives.  But this is standard operating procedure for most dictators.  (And there are suspicions about the many deaths surrounding even the Clintons in America.)  Look at the picture from the North Korean side:  the U.S. has invaded country after country on the most specious of grounds, always intimating that it is repeating its divinely ordained victories over the nasty Nazis and the joy-killing Japs.  It has no regard for other countries or their history, and insists on imposing its own delusions of political correctness on others (unless, of course, we are somehow bribed or controlled by them, as in the cases of Araby and Is-It-Real).  So can North Korea trust America’s asseverations of good intentions and coombayah to come, after it does the same thing to Kim that it did to Saddam Hussein and Muammar Qaddafi, and is trying to do to Bashar al-Assad?

    Kimmie also notes that, back before the German reunification, the U.S. made a verbal promise to Brezhnev that we would not place military hardware and forces into eastern Europe after the Russians pulled out.  We know how that turned out.  Nor can we forget how Washington “democratized” the former Yugoslavia with its bombs.  Et cetera, et cetera.

    No, North Korea’s dictator is not unhinged.  He is simply presenting a mirror image of America’s true nature to the U.S. leadership.  Both sides can play the game of brinkmanship:  threat against threat.  He is as well aware as the U.S. of just what the global consequences of a renewal of the Korean War would be.  And he is determined to take the global economy down with him if Yankeeland tries anything insane.

  33. Davy on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 5:27 am 

    greg, I guess you need to: “At least look at a map before spouting such blather.”

    dumbass.

    The reason you are so emotional is Seattle is nearby and Kim’s missiles are being perfected to hit the US mainland. Wow, that puts you very near his cross hairs. Yea, and if he is not stopped eventually I am in his cross hairs. We are all in his cross hairs because his war might end globalism as we know it. Maybe you should rethink your NK love. In this case your anti-Americanism is going to bite you in the ass. It is clear you and Makati blame this conflict on the US completely. Makati too has to contend with NUK war potential in Asia destroying the Asian economy as we know it. Pathetic anti-Americans

    “The average IQ in the US is 97 Anon. An extremely tiny minority have any semblance of intelligence. Most human beings respond emotionally, rather than intellectually. Which is why human beings are far easier to control than any other animal.”

    Stupid Canadians think their IQ is so much better but it isn’t at below 99. Who the frig knows a countries IQ anyway. The US is a 3rd world and 1st world country. Averages are deceptive but to an agendist like you greg, per capita and averages fit your select facts so often. The US is a center for intelligence and it has a dumbed down sheeple population. That fits the average for a 3rd world and 1st world country. Greg while you are at it tell the stupid Canadian millennial any mouse there are more smart shiny people in the US then the entire Canadian population because you dumbasses are nothing more than a big US state. Talking about responding emotionally look at yourself being a flaming nationalist with a fire breathing hatred for the US.
    Let’s review your pronouncements from above:
    “Geez Davy, lose the US-centric attitude already”
    Let’s restate you pronouncement:
    Geez greg, lose your anti-American centric attitude already.

  35. simon on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 7:30 am 

    when quoting the IQ figures, I wonder if you could quote the criticism of these figures, to whit

    Though the collection has been praised as “landmark” by Heiner Rindermann,[7] the books and their argument have been roundly criticized on methodological and analytical grounds: for some countries, test samples were very small or unrepresentative, different tests were used by different researchers conducting the test surveys, measurements of intelligence stem from different years (although the authors tried to correct for this), and missing data was estimated by using unweighted arithmetic means used for neighboring countries with similar people

    I am disappointed by the quality of debate, whilst we have some epic misspelling, no one has called anyone a ‘tard’ come on guys, your slipping

    China is the puppet master, but now that Chinese communism has created a symbiosis with the US there is no hope for DPRK reform and the fake news ‘armada’ should tell all you need to know about Trump and the US.

    A perfect example of an emotional response. Exactly how wars are sold to the sheeple. Try utilizing some of that grey matter instead Davy.

    true-dough is the best thing to happen for Canada’s elites since, harper, he really is. A weak powerless puppet of the empire, but with vastly superior media optics than his predecessor.

    Sound familiar? It should, One barak obomber was used to sell neo-liberalism, endless war and amerikan exceptionalism for 8 years. You might have heard of him. Even won some kind of ‘peace prize’ as I recall.

    And in other news, the North Koreans are not going to bomb Seattle dumbass. Nor are the Russians, the Iraqis, Libyans etc etc. They, and many South Koreans as well it should be mentioned, would be totally content to see all amerikans ejected, yes peacefully if possible from the peninsula. And they could take their multi-generational puppet military dictators with them when they leave as well.

    Send yankeee packing, and there would be no need for any WoMD, or DMZs.
