    It’s deja vu, all over again.

    Just four days after residents of Hawaii lived through 38 minutes of doomsday hell, after a false public broadcast alarm announced that a ballistic missile launch was headed for the island, only to reverse and announce later it was a mistake, moments ago Japan’s National broadcaster NHK’s app issued a false J-Alert to phones over a North Korean missile launch at 6:55 p.m. Tuesday evening local time.

    The message, received by phone users with the NHK app installed on their devices, read: “NHK news alert. North Korea likely to have launched missile. The government J alert: evacuate inside the building or underground. “

    It then promptly corrected the error just 5 minutes later, at around 7 p.m.

    After the false alert, NHK issued an on-air apology on Tuesday evening local time, saying “the news alert sent earlier about NK missile was a mistake. No government J alert was issued.”

    “Around 6:55pm earlier we reported on the NHK’s news site and NHK’s news disaster prevention application ‘Pattern of North Korean missile launch’ but this was incorrectly issued. J alert has not appeared. I must sincerely apologize,” the news outlet wrote.

    The bizarre coincidence of two false alarms announcing the start of nuclear war is certainly suspicious.

    The false alert came on the same day as the US and Canada planned to host talks in Vancouver over the crisis on the Korean Peninsula after a year of missile tests and threats from the North.

    As a reminder, on Saturday, an emergency alert notification sent out to residents of Hawaii warning of an incoming “ballistic missile threat” turned out to be a false alarm. The error was blamed on an employee who “pushed the wrong button.” “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the emergency alert read.

    The warning went out on television and radio as well as cell phones, according to Hawaii Gov. David Ige, sparking panic amongst some residents. A second emergency alert was sent to phones in Hawaii 38 minutes after the initial message confirming the false alarm.

    1. Japanese Public Broadcaster NHK Issues False Alarm Over North Korean Missile Launch

      Somebody or some Group is playing a dangerous GAME.

      Next false alarm gonna come from South Korea?

        How many times did that kid cry wolf?

      • Reason says:

        I happened to be in Hawaii Saturday when the ‘false’ ballistic missile alert went out. It didn’t include a source of the alleged missile.

        Japans’s alert today did – North Korea. The source *had* to be intentionally, manually added, or it was auto-triggered. No way to deny that this time (not that the Hawaiian one was due to a drop-down list error).

      The sky is falling. War seems to be coming.

      • Heartless says:

        Well, now we all know where the dude got transferred to from out of Hawaii. Maybe if I say NK missiles are on the way to Florida, I’ll get a vacation to somewhere? Shoot…. wrong call – they’re headed for Washington D.C.!!! False alarm.

    3. Wyoming Resident says:

      They are doing their best to spur Trump into starting something they can blame him with.

      Fortunately, I think Trump is in the process of dropping the hammer on these nefarious players and they are getting desperate to the point of an assassination attempt on his life.

      This is the time where meekness (patience under duress) is paramount on the part of Trump and all American patriots.

    4. Dave says:

      They are doing their best to start something! It is just like the lead in to every other conflict / war. Propaganda, propaganda, propaganda, false flag, war.

    5. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

      The Japs are taking lessons from our libturds.

    6. Concerned Citizen says:

      WTF is wrong with these god damn buffoons??

    7. Sgt. Dale says:

      I’ll bet the Japanese did a better jot of responding and taking shelter than we did!!!
      Sgt.

    8. Aussie Tornado says:

      Something is most definetly afoot, Dear Watson. 2 false signals sent out within days of each other?
      Come on!
      Either someone is probing the system to gauge grubberment reaction, or the grubberments are testing the publics reaction.
      This pile just doesnt smell right.
      “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action”.
      Something is most.definetly heading our way, people…

    9. Jim in Va. says:

      South Korea’s turn…..

    10. Plan twice, prep once says:

      The Japanese are a lot smarter than stupid Americans.
