The World Is Short-Fused On Multiple Flash-Points: “These Activities Cannot Be Discounted As Any Kind Of Routine”

It has been reported that the USS Nimitz will join the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Carl Vinson for a total of three U.S. carriers and their groups deployed to respond to or initiate actions against North Korea.  There is a small excerpt from an article entitled 3rd US Naval Strike Force Deployed to Deter North Korea that bears mention:

The U.S. military, meanwhile, will test a system to shoot down an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) for the first time next week.  It is intended to simulate a North Korean ICBM aimed at the U.S.

As you may see from that quote, it is blatantly obvious that the U.S. military is taking the North Korean threat a bit more seriously.  In the wake of two more missile tests by North Korea and the intention (after the latest test) to mass-produce missiles, the rhetoric seems to be working toward actions.  We’ve already covered numerous articles on the threat of EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapons by North Korea, as attested to by Dr. Peter V. Pry and other experts on the subject.  Now the U.S. has declared intentions of more “sanctions,” yet is emplacing a third carrier-group in the area.

Also, on Monday, May 27, two Russian Tupolev TU-160 Blackjack bombers passed closely to British airspace…close enough that the RAF scrambled two Typhoon fighters from Lossiemouth Air Force base in Scotland to intercept them.  Many may label this as routine; however, the UK Daily Mail released an article on this incident yesterday that provides some interesting facts, under a subparagraph entitled “Putin’s Patrols: Two Years of Russian Raids,” that reports on Russian aircraft running Cold-War routes.

When paired with all of the activities taking place off of the Alaskan coast this April and the scrambling of U.S. aircraft in response, these activities cannot be discounted as any kind of routine.  What they evidence is a growing preparedness on all sides and a ratcheting-up of tensions as the world moves closer to a major war.  The Chinese dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands is far from over, and the presence of the U.S. Navy in the region regarding North Korea has increased China’s belligerent rhetoric and her activities.

The terrorist incidents are on the rise around the world.  All News Pipeline’s Stefan Stanford just released an excellent piece with comments from former 4-Star General John Kelly, currently the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.  Entitled “Retired 4-Star General’s Dire Warning To America Should ‘Awaken’ Millions! What DOES He Know That We Don’t Know? the article details the heightened tensions and a worldwide sense by governments and citizens alike that the terrorist attacks will increase and not abate.

The nations are beset by widespread domestic violence within their borders from the illegal aliens in Europe, and terrorist incidents are rising exponentially.  The United States is also seeing a rise in shootings and civil unrest along racial and political lines.  Theaters such as North Korea, Syria, and Ukraine can morph into a state of regional war that may grow into something much larger at any given moment.  How soon? Well, it’s overdue, and whether or not it can be prevented from occurring is another matter of conjecture that only time will answer.

    Dumb Move to pile 3 fleets off N Korea, to make it easier to destroy all of them in one attack. A few Russian Plane flyovers Using their EMP technology and they all sit there disabled, like ducks in a pond for the subs to blow holes in them. Was it worth it to pick on a 3rd world country as a Punching Bag, to loose 3 battle groups? The US never gets it and why the US Military looses every war.. Read Sun Tzu’s Art of War you stooped dopes.. Tell me, has N Korea ever attacked the US?

    • Man on the inside says:

      US warships are EMP Hardened.

      • GrandpaSpeaks says:

        Then there are those super cavitation torpedoes fired from “black hole” submarines. Indefensible, a coordinated attack could send all carrier groups to Davy Jones locker. I too think we could do with a better risk assessment strategy. That is if they even do risk assessment anymore. Maybe it is not required in the perpetual war. Just like Congressional approval is not required. Rogue, I believe is the term.

        • GiveThemLead says:

          Did I miss something here? When did Congress Declare War on N Korea? More Illegal BS from the Military.

        • Wilson says:

          The politicians do not take Dr. Pry, or the other mysterious “experts” serious about the threat posed by EMP weapons. If they did they would have taken the EMP commission report on the threat posed to the grid and taken preventive measures to reduce, or eliminate, the threat posed by EMP weapons. Prevention is cheaper, and without the pain, suffering, and panic that rebuilding will bring following an EMP attack.

          As for John Kelly, I don’t care how many stars he has, he says what he does for the simple facts that he has to keep up the hype in order to keep getting that lush (read slush fund) budget he wants. He and the politicians need to keep us fearful to create more dependency on them.

    • Jack Fallin says:

      I diasagree that the US loses wars. We arent allowed to win. When decisions on targeting, fire missions, and rules of engagements, I let go, gave back, released and turned the other cheek on enemies, territory,and simple insurgency. We are fighting for all the wrong reasons. And yes the US troops stationed in South Korea were attacked by North Korea. On a related note, Japan had never attacked US before 12-7-1941 but they did then. If you can read The Art of War, you should read some American History to improve you mind and attitude.

    • paquo says:

      they got hypersonic missiles just for the occasion, too bad our politicians , generals and deep state thugs are so arrogant cuz they are going to get a lot of people killed. One common denominator of the flash points around the world.

    • I'm your huckleberry says:

      Baloney. The ships are hardened against an EMP and they aren’t close enough for North Korea or anyone else to get in one attack. You need a reality check.

      • Ketchupondemand says:

        When you point out his completely wrong statements, he never responds.
        Kinds like what trolls do.

      • buttcrackofdoom says:

        funny, there’s a story out there from a couple years ago about a missile cruiser in the black sea that has a russian plane circling it for an hour or so. reports are that several times, it was rendered defenseless, when the plane “disabled” it with an EMP type device….i wouldn’t be too sure about our abilities….i just WONDER if we can do the things we THINK we can do….kind of like when marlin says to Dori,”you THINK you can do these things, but you CAN’T!”…..maybe we can, maybe we can’t.

    • HumalicksHillary says:

      Three carrier groups are being used to threaten China. The Norks have shown that a “show of force” doesn’t faze them. If Kim was truly unhinged and they were sure of a kill shot, their “EMP” satellite would have already been used. China is not sure of a kill shot, and don’t want to find out the hard way that they don’t yet have one. Just like the Japs in WWII, they know thet without a knockout blow, a disasterous slugfest will ensue. The Japs bet the farm on the attack at Pearl Harbor, and lost.

    Light that fuse. Let’s get the party started. My popcorn is getting stale and my beer is getting warm and flat.

  3. Sgt. Dale says:

    Story of my life short fuse!!!

    So be it. The world with a short fuse. That is ok just as long as someone doesn’t light it!!!!

  4. PO'd Patriot says:

    It hasn’t even got real hot yet.

  5. Heartless says:

    First thought – “got a light?”

  6. Seminole Wind says:

    I understand that the Polish military is training for both a Russian invasion and a Muslim/German civil war in Europe.

    Here in the good old U.S., just wait for the next election cycle, which I believe is going to be very very violent!

  7. Man on the inside says:

    Not Shure what the article was about except a copulation of already reported things going on. Just keep prepping….

  8. Brian says:

    It sure seems very probable. It feels like something huge is about to happen!

  9. Seminole Wind says:

    Civil war in Syria, Libya, Yemen, in Venezuela some of the troops are going over to the anti-Marxist side. If Venezuela goes civil war, will Cuba side with the Commie Government and will Trump send in the Marines?

    As a prep we’ve been buying Ruger LCP .380 pistols at $235 ea. Having extra noisemakers during hard times might pay off.

  10. I can’t decide whether to make cupcakes or a great big layered rum cake with real fruit between the layers, and smothered in real chocolate melted over the top then designed with white rosettes. I will just have to make a great big layered cake and use the left overs for bite sized cupcakes. Now that that problem has been solved, I can get outside and build another house. I’m expecting company. I just don’t have time to deal with these other problems. Jerimiah, you figure out what to do, and let me know when the dust settles. ☺️

  11. GETTING REAL says:

    LETS SEE.

    1. N. KOREA is about to get HOTTER.
    2. RUSSIANS are buzzing off the COAST of the U.S. and other ALLIES.
    3.FOREIGN SUBS have been off the COAST too. ( not sure whose ).
    4.RIOTS are expected in the U.S. this SUMMER.
    5.RACIAL TENSIONS are GROWING.

    SHELL I GO ON ?

    6. Oh!!!! has anyone CHECKED THE BACK DOOR LATELY ??????????

  12. Stormy says:

    This site would be more effective without the backwater, white trash RACISM.

    We are all one race, the human race. Constantly stressing so-called tribal differences only makes things worse.

    Buying guns galore is a sign of fear. I do not live in fear. I have no guns. I have never been attacked or robbed in my life. I have the best weapon available:
    my big brain.

    Enjoy your chicken little posts. The sky hasn’t fallen yet.

    • awed bawl says:

      Commie infiltraitor.

    • Stormy:

      Race is real. The difference between races is profound. To believe otherwise is to deceive yourself. Only trash and white in the same sentence proclaimed with the typical hypocracy of those who are the destroyers of Western Culture. White people who breed with nonWhites are committing a sin. It is called genocide. If you are 9/10 white, you are white. The idea that only those who are 100% white have any reason to protect from further diluting of their genes is wrong. The white race is important to all the races. We are the foundation from which modern civilization sprang.

      Without us, white people, the brown and black people are unlikely to do well, at all.

    • Wrong! We are seperate races! IN fact my wife is biracial! She is half sexy librarian and half hot nurse!

    • Jim in Va. says:

      Stormy; better to have that gun and not need it than to need it and not have it. Your brain isn’t going to stop a knife or bullet. You’ve just been lucky…..keep your fingers crossed.

    • Anonymous says:

      But stormy……you’re here reading the stories…..so, that tells me you’re looking for something, curious about something, perhaps fear of the unknown? If you’re brain was so big, you’d see through the chicken little and move on somewhere more “enlightened”.

      My guess, your facing a big river in Egypt……..and you’re not sure how to confront it.

      Best of luck, shooting that weapon off when some evil doers come pounding on your door.

    • Waiting says:

      You’ve been lucky. Even I, from a town of 38,000 people, back in 1965 was accosted by two men when I was getting off work. I could only get into the car on passenger’s side due to a car parked too close on driver’s side. The two men slid in behind me and presented with a knife. They told me to start the car and drive. I refused because my mother had discussed such things with me. I was not cooperative at all, and figured it was better to be stabbed in the hospital parking lot than on an isolated road somewhere in the boondocks. I guess the men decided I was too much trouble, so they took my purse and left. Believe me I would have liked to have had a gun then to put in their faces. I am a fighter and will only cooperate if it benefits me. I do have a brain, but sometimes you need a gun. I have several now and not afraid to use them in self defense. I live in the reality of the times at hand….very dangerous times. By the way, I am white and the two men were white. I don’t make blanket statements about people, and I never call anyone trash. People are good and bad in all races. And there are racist in all races. I judge a person on their character and how respectful they are towards others. Please be careful.

    • And I Quote says:

    • HumalicksHillary says:

      Horseshit.
      The ‘there is only one race’ meme is stupid. The shittiest parts of USA are the most ‘diverse’, and the shittiest parts of the world are the least white.

      I’m sure Stormy lives in a ‘diverse’ neighborhood.

    • anonymous5 says:

      So….Stormy……when someone starts shooting at you, what are you gonna do with that big brain of yours before it gets splattered all over the landscape? Reason with your assailant?

      I just love the rhetoric of the left. Totally devoid of reason and reality.

    • Braveheart1776 says:

      Stormy you say you don’t live in fear or have any guns? Sounds like you’re loaded with confidence. [SARCASM]

    • Kevin2 says:

      Stormy

      “I have never been attacked or robbed in my life.”

      But others have. While they have been unlucky you certainly have been lucky. Do not confuse preparedness with living in fear because owning a fire extinguisher and smoke alarm is not the sign of irrational fear just common sense.

      ” I have the best weapon available: my big brain.”
      “The sky hasn’t fallen yet.”

      The analysis from your cranium is to ignore the possibility of danger simply because it hasn’t happened?

    • buttcrackofdoom says:

      we have NEVER had interest rates at near ZERO for ten years
      we have NEVER had so many terriss’s attacking U.S.
      we have never had such a high population of unemployed.
      we have never had such a high level of debt.
      we have never seen such idiocy during, and AFTER an election.
      we have never been so disrespectful to eachother
      we have never been so DUMB.
      we have never been in so much trouble with pension obligations.
      we have never been in so much debt as a population.
      yes, i’m SURE everything will be fine….nuthin’ to see here, i got an episode of dancin’ with the stars to watch.

  15. Justice says:

    Off Topic: Question

    I have some in-line RV water filters that require water pressure in order to work. In a grid down situation, is there a manual pump, or something else, I could use to create the water pressure needed?

    I have a small solar setup but I’m reluctant to power anything that uses a motor. The manual pump would have to use standard garden hose attachments.

    Should I just rely on “GRAVITY” systems?

    Any help or pointing me to reliable resources would be greatly appreciated.

    • HumalicksHillary says:

      Yes, a gravity system is the most foolproof. If you can’t raise the feed water source high enough to create flow or create enough pressure with a manual pump of some sort, look for a different filter system (i.e. Berkey or Katadyn).

      In a crisis, a water filter system that requires an electric pump is about as good as a food reserve that requires refridgeration.

    • Justice says:

      I think I found the solution: WAYNE PC1 Portable 12V Battery-Powered Water Transfer Pump With Suction Hose And Attachment

      1. 12 v; max. Flow rate is 350 gallons per hour; 300 gph at 10 ft. Of discharge lift
      2. 3/4 in. Chrome-plated bronze suction/discharge for easy connection to standard garden hose
      3. Removes water down to 1/8 in. Of surface (when water suction attachment is connected)
      4. Portable and lightweight transfer pump you can take anywhere
      5. Connects to 12 volt battery with alligator clamps, includes convenient on/off switch
      6. Portable battery-powered transfer water pump
      7. Powered by car or marine batteries

      With this pump I will NOT have to rely on gravity filters in a post-shtf. It opens up some possibilities.

    • Ketchupondemand says:

      Justice, I have a Guzzler hand pump for backup and have used them extensively in the past. They’re excellent.

      A week or so ago you asked about rain water systems, or something to that effect. (Bleach disinfecting?)
      I had written a long answer and was about to post it, but hit the “delete” button when I wanted to hit “backspace”.
      So I let it go.
      Have been using rain water collection with a Dankoff 24volt pump for about 3 years now, powered by just 2 60 watt panels and 2 12 volt batteries wired to 24v.
      Full house water system with a large Grainger/Dayton pressure tank.
      Made it so I can switch back to municipal water by just turning 2 valves.
      As for bleach, plain unscented clorox.
      You will get different amounts recommended from different websites.
      1/8 teaspoon to 1 gal.
      1/4 cup to a 55 gal. barrel
      2 oz. to 120 gallons.
      8 oz. to 480 gals.
      10.8 oz. to 650 gals.
      I have 3 tanks, 2 are 650 gal. and one is 800, so adding bleach during rainstorms is a guessing game. Sometimes you can smell a slight bleach odor, but if your tank has a breather valve, like it should, (screened) the odor will dissipate.
      Love free water. We’ve collected as much as 600 gallons in one afternoon.
      Unlike solar, which is certainly not free.

    To all you fruitcakes saying “let’s get it on”, or “light that fuse”, or “let’s rock and roll” and all that other silly bullsh*t. Why would you want that? A rational person can only assume five things after reading all the posts; 1) some leaving comments are actually too ignorant or too childish in their personal development to understand the ramifications and secondary effects – in reality I bet these individuals have mundane lives and no control or influence with anyone or anything beyond their personal lives, 2) that some do understand what can possibly happen but want to see it anyway, – this will give normal sane people insight to what kind of persons these people are, my experience is that the psychological profile these persons fit into show them to be emotional, allow them to turn on their own, and become angry whenever they can’t have their way, 3) some can honestly be mentally ill, 4) some are just angry with the world and want to see others punished, “to get theirs”, and 5) you are just a f*cking phony trying to convince yourself and others you are a badass.
    Perhaps other readers could add more reasons and fuller explanations. Those who want destruction and bloodshed should volunteer to be the first to sacrifice your life since you are so badass, and while you’re at take your brothers, your cousins and your nephews to throw their lives away too to show us how sincere you are.
    Just to try to educate some of them so that these individuals will maybe stop and think; the politicians, officials, and gov’t don’t give a f*ck about us, they see all of us as managed but disposable resources. It is not about us you dumbasses, it’s about them and their wealth and power and status. They want mindless guns-ho idiots, it makes their job easier. And if you don’t believe that it only means they have succeeded in dumbing you down. Me and mine will fight to the death to protect ours, but will not be disposable fodder for TPTB wars, we will not be used by them.
