BLINK: Kim Jong-Un Cancels Missile Attack On Guam As James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Warns U.S. Will Shoot It Down • Now The End Begins

North Korea’s state-controlled media reported last week on preparations for test firing four missiles, saying they would be aimed in the direction of Guam but splash down before reaching it. President Donald Trump pledged to meet new saber rattling from the communist country with ‘fire and fury.’ ‘If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about an attack – of anybody that we love or we represent, or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous,’ Trump warned on Thursday. ‘And they should be, because things will happen to them like they never thought possible.’

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Monday that if North Korea launches a missile in the direction of Guam, U.S. armed forces ‘will take it out.’ And he warned that ‘if they fire at the United States, it could escalate into war very quickly.’

EDITOR’S NOTE: President Trump is doing exactly what he and his administration need to do in defusing the missile strike threat from North Korea. When things reached a peak last week, we asked who will blink first as the saber-rattling ratcheted up. Kim Jong-Un blinked first, and very wisely so. Appointing ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis as the Secretary of Defense was an excellent  choice. 

The Pentagon chief told reporters during a half-hour media availability that the Defense Department can determine where an airborne missile is headed ‘within moments’ of a launch.

And if a missile from dictator Kim Jong-Un is seen as threatening Guam, a tiny U.S. Pacific island 2,100 miles from Pyongyang, ‘then it’s game on,’ Mattis declared, ‘and we will try and do our best to make sure it does not hit the United States.’

‘We will defend the country from any attack at any time from any quarter,’ he said.

Sec. Mattis: If North Korea fires at the US, it’s ‘game on’

North Korea’s state-controlled media reported last week on preparations for test firing four missiles, saying they would be aimed in the direction of Guam but splash down before reaching it.

President Donald Trump pledged to meet new saber rattling from the communist country with ‘fire and fury.’

‘If North Korea does anything in terms of even thinking about an attack – of anybody that we love or we represent, or our allies or us, they can be very, very nervous,’ Trump warned on Thursday.

‘And they should be, because things will happen to them like they never thought possible.’

‘North Korea better get their act together or they are going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble,’ the president said.

On Friday he tweeted that ‘military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded.’

‘Mad Dog’ Mattis, a retired U.S. Marine Corps general, wouldn’t say on Monday whether the U.S. would respond militarily to a missile launch in Guam’s direction that appeared to intentionally miss the target.

‘If it falls short of Guam, then it becomes an issue that we take up however the president chooses,’ he said.

‘You can’t make all the decisions in advance. There are a host of things going on,’ he added. ‘I need a certain amount of ambiguity on this because I am not going to tell them what I’ll do in each case.’

But Mattis insisted the U.S. military stands ready to fight a belligerent North Korea if the president decides to engage.

‘The bottom line is we will defend the country, and for us that’s war,’ he explained.

‘You don’t shoot at people in this world unless you bear the consequences.’ source

GAME TIME: President Trump Says American Military Is ‘Locked And Loaded’ And Ready To Address North Korea Threat • Now The End Begins

“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang.
president-trump-locked-loaded-north-korea-nteb

U.S. President Donald Trump issued another warning to North Korea on Friday with a reference to American weapons as being “locked and loaded.”

“The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.” Exodus 15:2,3 (KJV)

“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang.

North Korea’s threat on Thursday to test-fire ballistic missiles soon near the American territory of Guam deepened the challenge confronting the Trump administration: how to defang Pyongyang’s missile programs without risking all-out war.

President Trump has made clear that his goal is to deny North Korea the capability to field a long-range nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the United States.

U.S. can obliterate North Korea using submarine force alone: Gen. Jack Keane

And though the Pentagon still hopes for a diplomatic solution, highly classified military options are at the ready, last seriously debated when the Clinton administration pondered pre-emptive action to try to thwart North Korea’s nuclear program.

Even a limited strike against a North Korean missile on its launching pad or the shooting down of a missile in midair would pose risks that the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, might retaliate, setting off a spiral of escalation that could plunge the Korean Peninsula into war.

North Korea responds to Trump’s ‘fire and fury’ comments

“In the event of a first strike against Kim, even a non-nuclear option, it is highly likely that Kim would retaliate at least conventionally against South Korea,” said James Stavridis, a retired four-star admiral who is now dean of Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. “This almost certainly would create an upward spiral of violence which would be extremely difficult to manage or to mitigate.”

The Trump administration’s first recourse has been diplomacy. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought to head off North Korea’s missile program this week by suggesting that the United States could open talks with Pyongyang if North Korea would halt its missile tests.

On Thursday, however, North Korea raised the stakes by saying that it was considering a plan to test-fire four intermediate-range Hwasong-12 missiles in international waters near Guam, home to American air and naval bases as well as a Thaad antimissile system.

Mr. Trump hinted broadly later in the day that he has his own military options in mind. “Obviously we’re spending a lot of time looking at, in particular, North Korea,” he told reporters, “and we are preparing for many different alternative events.”

But few of the military options are straightforward, and some former Pentagon officials involved in war planning for North Korea pointed to the complexities.

A major consideration would be whether and when to evacuate American and other allied civilians, which is no small feat as Seoul, a city of about 10 million, is within range of North Korea’s rockets and artillery and the North Korean military is also armed with chemical and biological weapons.

“With all this talk, what I worry about is a serious miscalculation,” said James D. Thurman, a retired Army general who served as the top United States commander in South Korea from 2011 to 2013. “Before we start talking about all these military options, we have to decide what are we going to do with the U.S. citizens over there.”

He estimated that at least a quarter-million Americans would have to be moved.

If the United States was prepared to go beyond a limited strike, it could conduct a surprise attack on North Korea’s missile garrison and weapon storage areas, using American aircraft stationed in Guam, in Japan and on aircraft carriers as well as strategic bombers that would be refueled in flight. source

Kim Jong-Un Says He’ll Blow Up Guam As Trump Vows Pre-Emptive ‘Fire And Fury’ On North Korea • Now The End Begins

North Korea said on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire and fury”.

North Korea said on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” plans for a missile strike on the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire and fury”.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The last time we laughed off a funny, little dictator with funky hair, 55 million people died in the fighting during WWII. President Trump is going to have to do something soon, the only question is what. If he waits and Kim Jong-Un does start actually bombing people, critics will lay the blame at Trump’s feet for not taking action. If Trump does take pre-emptive action and it triggers a global conflict, Trump will receive the blame for acting ‘too soon’. ‘Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision…’ Pray for our president, he sure needs it.

North Korea has made no secret of plans to develop a nuclear-tipped missile able to strike the United States and has ignored international calls to halt its nuclear and missile programs.

The strike plan would be put into practice at any moment once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision, a spokesman for the Korean People’s Army (KPA) said in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency.

“The KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the U.S. major military bases on Guam including the Anderson Air Force Base,” the spokesman said.

The plan would be reported to the North’s Supreme Command soon, the spokesman said, without citing a date.

On Monday, two US B-1 bombers flew from Guam over the Korean Peninsula as a part of its “continuous bomber presence,” a U.S. official said, in a sign of the strategic importance Guam holds.

In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also accused the United States of devising a “preventive war” and said any plans to execute this would be met with an “all-out war wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the U.S. mainland.”

The United States should stop its “reckless military provocation” against North Korea to avoid any military action, the army spokesman said.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday over its continued missile tests.

Trump ratcheted up the rhetoric against North Korea on Tuesday, saying Pyongyang should not make any more threats against the United States in a meeting with reporters at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. source

READY TO RUMBLE: North Korea Has Successfully Created A Mini Nuclear Warhead And Says U.S. Is The Target • Now The End Begins

The nuclear progress further raises the stakes for President Trump, who has vowed that North Korea will never be allowed to threaten the United States with nuclear weapons. In an interview broadcast Saturday on MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt Show, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said the prospect of a North Korea armed with nuclear-tipped ICBMs would be “intolerable, from the president’s perspective.”
north-korea-now-has-mini-nuclear-warhead-missile-nteb-end-times-begin

North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, U.S. intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Kim Jong-Un may be crazy, but he’s certainly not stupid. He’s been bragging for the past 3 and a half years that his country would successfully acquire nukes, and now, they have done it. This could have been prevented or indefinitely delayed had Obama authorized the military to do something about, but since action conflicts with his “lead from behind” strategy, he did nothing. Now President Trump has this mess to deal with, and make no mistake, North Korea will take a shot at hitting America if they are not stopped. The clock is ticking…

The new analysis completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal. The U.S. calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Some independent experts believe the number of bombs is much smaller.

The findings are likely to deepen concerns about an evolving North Korean military threat that appears to be advancing far more rapidly than many experts had predicted. U.S. officials last month concluded that Pyongyang is also outpacing expectations in its effort to build an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking cities on the American mainland.

Should the US accept North Korea as a nuclear power?

While more than a decade has passed since North Korea’s first nuclear detonation, many analysts believed it would be years before the country’s weapons scientists could design a compact warhead that could be delivered by missile to distant targets. But the new assessment, a summary document dated July 28, concludes that this critical milestone has already been reached.

“The IC [intelligence community] assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles,” the assessment states, in an excerpt read to The Washington Post. The assessment’s broad conclusions were verified by two U.S. officials familiar with the document. It is not yet known whether the reclusive regime has successfully tested the smaller design, although North Korea officially last year claimed to have done so.

The DIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment.

An assessment this week by the Japanese Ministry of Defense also concludes there is evidence to suggest that North Korea has achieved miniaturization.

Kim Jong Un is becoming increasingly confident in the reliability of his nuclear arsenal, analysts have concluded, explaining perhaps the dictator’s willingness to engage in defiant behavior, including missile tests that have drawn criticism even from North Korea’s closest ally, China. On Saturday, both China and Russia joined other members of the U.N. Security Council in approving punishing new economic sanctions, including a ban on exports that supply up to a third of North Korea’s annual $3 billion earnings.

The nuclear progress further raises the stakes for President Trump, who has vowed that North Korea will never be allowed to threaten the United States with nuclear weapons. In an interview broadcast Saturday on MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt Show, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said the prospect of a North Korea armed with nuclear-tipped ICBMs would be “intolerable, from the president’s perspective.”

“We have to provide all options . . . and that includes a military option,” he said. But McMaster said the administration would do everything short of war to “pressure Kim Jong Un and those around him, such that they conclude it is in their interest to denuclearize.” The options said to be under discussion ranged from new multilateral negotiations to reintroducing U.S. battlefield nuclear weapons to the Korean Peninsula, officials familiar with internal discussions said.

Kim has repeatedly proclaimed his intention to field a fleet of nuclear-tipped ICBMs as a guarantor of his regime’s survival.

His regime took a major step toward that goal last month with the first successful tests of a missile with intercontinental range. Video analysis of the latest test revealed that the missile caught fire and apparently disintegrated as it plunged back toward Earth’s surface, suggesting North Korea’s engineers are not yet capable of building a reentry vehicle that can carry the warhead safely through the upper atmosphere. But U.S. analysts and many independent experts believe that this hurdle will be overcome by late next year.

“What initially looked like a slow-motion Cuban missile crisis is now looking more like the Manhattan Project, just barreling along,” said Robert Litwak, a nonproliferation expert at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and author of “Preventing North Korea’s Nuclear Breakout,” published by the center this year. “There’s a sense of urgency behind the program that is new to the Kim Jong Un era.” source

FAT AND FURIOUS: After Being Slapped With Sanctions By UN, North Korea Vows ‘Thousand Fold Revenge’ Against United States • Now The End Begins

Crackpot leader Kim Jong-un is demanding “justice” over Donald Trump’s attempts to “isolate and stifle” his country with ban on exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood.  The tough new U.N. sanctions could slash North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.

NORTH Korea has threatened “thousands-fold” revenge against the United States for banning exports worth $1billion following its intercontinental ballistic launches.

Crackpot leader Kim Jong-un is demanding “justice” over Donald Trump’s attempts to “isolate and stifle” his country with ban on exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood.  The tough new U.N. sanctions could slash North Korea’s $3 billion annual export revenue by a third.

State-controlled media carried a statement from the North that promised the move would never force the country to negotiate over its nuclear program – or to give up its nuclear drive. It says it will take “action of justice” but didn’t elaborate.

It’s after US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to apply maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea in a telephone call on Monday.

The U.N. Security Council unanimously imposed new sanctions on North Korea on Saturday aimed at pressuring Pyongyang to end its nuclear programme. The U.S.-drafted resolution bans North Korean exports of coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood following Pyongyang’s two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

It also prohibits countries from increasing the current numbers of North Korean labourers working abroad, bans new joint ventures with North Korea and any new investment in current joint ventures.

North Korea threatens US over new sanctions:

North Korea denounced the sanctions, saying they infringed on its sovereignty and vowed to take “righteous action”, according to the North’s official news agency.

Pyongyang would never place its nuclear programme on the negotiating table as long as the United States maintained a hostile policy against the North, the government statement reported by KCNA said.

Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho called new U.N. sanctions “fabricated” and warned there would be “strong follow-up measures” and acts of justice.

 

In a statement he said the resolution showed the United Nations had abused its authority and that North Korea was ready to give America a “severe lesson” with its strategic nuclear force if it takes military action against it.

It said its intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July proved that the entire United States was in its firing range, and those missiles were a legitimate means of self-defence.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the support of China and Russia for the latest sanctions sent a strong message to North Korea about what was expected of it. Tillerson said: “When the conditions are right then we can sit and have a dialogue around the future of North Korea so they feel secure and prosper economically.

“The best signal that North Korea can give us that they are prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches.”

North Korea has long accused the United States and South Korea of escalating tensions by conducting military drills. North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.

During an hour-long phone call, Moon and Trump said they would continue cooperating to rein in North Korea, particularly ahead of a regular joint military drill set for late August, South Korean presidential office spokesman Park Su-hyun told a media briefing.

Moon was also cited as saying there was a need to show North Korea the door to dialogue is still open, should Pyongyang give up its nuclear programme.

In a separate statement, the White House said the two leaders “affirmed that North Korea poses a grave and growing direct threat” to most countries around the world. In a Twitter post, Trump said he was “very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote” on the sanctions. source

President Trump Calls Emergency Meeting To Formulate ‘Measured Response’ To North Korea ICBM Missile Launch • Now The End Begins

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile. And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.  The US has also requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea’s latest missile launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.
president-trump-emergency-meeting-north-korea-united-states-nations-missile-launch

President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting on the Fourth of July to formulate a ‘measured response’ to North Korea’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test, amid fears it could reach as far as Alaska.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The United States today confirmed that North Korea did in fact successfully test launch an inter-continental ballistic missile Monday night, a missile that is absolutely of reaching any part of Alaska. Today, President Trump called for an emergency meeting to discuss what the official US response is going to be. Something tells me that it’s not going to be more sanctions.

North Korea declared Tuesday that it had finally achieved its dream of building an intercontinental ballistic missile, saying it would ‘fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail’.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later confirmed the latest missile test was with an intercontinental ballistic missile. And Tillerson says that’s a new escalation of the threat posed to the United States and the world by North Korea.

The launch, which came as the United States prepared to mark its Independence Day, triggered a Twitter outburst from Trump who urged China to ‘put a heavy move’ on North Korea to ‘end this nonsense once and for all’.

US military and national security officials are now holding the unexpected meeting to determine if leader Kim Jong-un’s claim his country fired an intercontinental missile is true, Trump administration sources told CNN.

The US has also requested a closed-door meeting of the United Nations Security Council on North Korea’s latest missile launch, a spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations says.

The spokesman said the meeting of the 15-member council was likely to be scheduled for Wednesday.

If data and intelligence proves the ICBM was launched, officials say Trump would potentially approve a ‘measured response’ to deal with North Korea. Potential responses include sending additional troops to the region and possibly more sanctions.

North Korea has long sought to build a rocket capable of delivering an atomic warhead to the United States – something Trump has vowed ‘won’t happen’.

In an announcement of the missile test, North Korean officials called the launch, which leader Kim Jong-un supervised, a ‘glistening miracle’.

The Hwasong-14 ICBM reached an altitude of about 1,741 miles (2,802 kilometres) and flew 579 miles (933 kilometres) for 39 minutes before hitting a target area on the sea off the east coast, according to North Korea.

Washington, Japan and South Korea gave similar figures, and US experts said the trajectory implied the device could reach Alaska.

North Korea is subject to multiple sets of United Nations sanctions over its atomic and missile programs, which it says it needs to protect itself against a possible invasion. It regularly issues bloodcurdling threats against its ‘imperialist enemy’ Washington, and has long sought a rocket capable of delivering a warhead to the continental United States.

Russia and China joined diplomatic forces on Tuesday and called on North Korea, South Korea and the US to sign up to a Chinese de-escalation plan designed to defuse tensions around Pyongyang’s missile program.

The plan would see North Korea suspend its ballistic missile program and the US and South Korea simultaneously call a moratorium on large-scale missile exercises, both moves aimed at paving the way for multilateral talks.

The initiative was set out in a joint statement from the Russian and Chinese foreign ministries issued shortly after President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping held wide-ranging talks in the Kremlin.

Russia and China both share a land border with North Korea and have been involved in past efforts to try to calm tensions between Pyongyang and the West.

Moscow and Beijing used the same joint declaration to call on Washington to immediately halt deployment of its THAAD anti-missile system in South Korea, a move Washington says is necessitated by the North Korean missile threat.

North Korea’s missile launch on Tuesday prompted control specialist Jeffrey Lewis to respond on Twitter: ‘That’s it. It’s an ICBM. An ICBM that can hit Anchorage not San Francisco, but still.’

David Wright, of the Union of Concerned Scientists, wrote on the organisation’s allthingsnuclear blog that the available figures implied the missile ‘could reach a maximum range of roughly 6,700 km on a standard trajectory’.

‘That range would not be enough to reach the lower 48 states or the large islands of Hawaii, but would allow it to reach all of Alaska.’ source

Otto Warmbier Dead As President Trump Condemns ‘Brutal’ North Korea Regime, Vows US Will ‘Handle It’ • Now The End Begins

Warmbier’s family said in a statement that “the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans” meant that “no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today.” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who has led the charge for tougher sanctions on North Korea over its missile program, said “Countless innocent men and women have died at the hand of the North Korean criminals, but the singular case of Otto Warmbier touches the American heart like no other.
otto-warmbier-dead-north-korea-prison-camp-torture

President Trump slammed North Korea’s “brutal regime” Monday after the death of college student Otto Warmbier, who was released by the communist nation in a coma last week.

“Lot of bad things happened,” Trump said during a White House meeting with technology CEOs, “but at least we got him home to be with his parents.”

“It’s a brutal regime,” Trump went on, “and we’ll be able to handle it.”

Warmbier was held by North Korea for more than 17 months before he was medically evacuated June 13. He died Monday at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, near where he grew up in suburban Wyoming.

In a written statement, Trump said that “Otto’s fate deepens my Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency.”

Warmbier’s family said in a statement that “the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans” meant that “no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today.”

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who has led the charge for tougher sanctions on North Korea over its missile program, said “Countless innocent men and women have died at the hand of the North Korean criminals, but the singular case of Otto Warmbier touches the American heart like no other.

“While Otto Warmbier’s memory will always be a blessing to his loved ones,” Haley added, “it will also serve as an indelible reminder to us of the barbaric nature of the North Korean dictatorship.”

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said North Korea should be “universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior.” He added that Warmbier’s family “had to endure more than any family should have to bear.”

Ohio’s other senator, Democrat Sherrod Brown, said the country’s “despicable actions … must be condemned.”

“Our hearts are broken for Otto’s family and everyone who knew and loved him,” Brown added.

The state’s governor, John Kasich, described Warmbier as “a young man of exceptional spirit.”

“This horrendous situation further underscores the evil, oppressive nature of the North Korean regime that has such disregard for human life,” Kasich says. source
