It’s finally happened: Kim Jong-Un has had a successful ICBM (Intercontinental ballistic missile) test. Now that he’s actually improved his battle might and has the capability to strike Alaska, he’s taunting the US president with nuclear war.
A top military official has warned “self-restraint” is the only thing stopping the US from going to war with North Korea. Soon after his successful missile test on the 4th of July, a defiant Kim Jong-Un seemingly taunted “American bas**rds” in the wake of said successful intercontinental ballistic missile test. Pyongyang claims its newly developed rocket can carry “large-sized and heavy nuclear warheads.”
The North Korean leader made the haughty statement, in which he said “the American bas**rds would not be very happy with this gift sent on the July 4 anniversary,” not long after the ICBM was launched Tuesday, the Korean Central News Agency reported.
The successful ICBM, which state media said had reached an altitude of 2,802 kilometers (1,741 miles), was its highest ever missile test, and most successful. State media in Pyongyang said North Korea now had the power to now strike the American mainland with a nuclear warhead. Experts agree, and say that if the missile had been fired on a normal trajectory instead of at a high altitude, it would have reached about 6,000 kilometers, which is enough to put Alaska within range.
In a joint press statement issued by Russia and China, the two countries reiterated their call for North Korea to stop its missile and nuclear tests in exchange for the US and South Korea holding off on future large joint military drills.
However, within hours of the statement, the US and South Korea announced they indeed had held a new ballistic missile drill to counter “North Korea’s destabilizing and unlawful actions.” “(The drills) showcased precision targeting of the enemy’s leadership in case of an emergency,” a South Korean Defense Ministry statement said.<
Speaking out against Pyongyang on Wednesday, the top American general in South Korea issued an ominous warning of his own to Kim and his ilk north of the border. “Self-restraint, which is a choice, is all that separates armistice and war,” General Vincent Brooks said in a joint statement. But this missile test is leaving the United States with few options, and the nation is split on how they intend to deal with the rogue nation’s new capabilities.
With a seemingly unavoidable war with North Korea on the horizon, joint drills only inch up tensions between the nations choosing to involve themselves. Analysts told CNN there are very few good options for President Trump to deal with the North Korean threat. “A really difficult question will be whether Donald Trump feels like he’s (been) backed into a corner and doesn’t have options short of war,” Adam Mount, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, told CNN.
Yeah, about that Congressional approval there Brooky. Must have forgot eh. What’s that? Your red? Rouge? Oh, I see, you are rogue. That Kim, always crossing his borders interfering in others business right? You don’t need no stinking approval from the people to stop his aggression, right?
An unused weapon is a useless weapon. Let the arrows fly?
CNN tracked down the creator of the Trump wrestling meme and threatened him. This is how the internet is responding.”
The US forces have been in a constant state of preparedness and hostilities with the NORKs in Korea for decades. I don’t think the US is going to stand down as the NORKs escalate the ante! It looks like the US generals are ready to call the bluff!
Louisiana Eagle ?
Our amerikan generals are cowards. They are treated like royalty in the military so they don’t want to get kilt.
First, the US Military along with the CIA keep poking their unLAWful noses where it does not belong in other nations.
Second, it is NOT up to the “US” Generals to make any decision about sending Americans to war – and azzwhipe, that is found in writing in the contract that they ALL are under, required to follow, required to take an Oath making them PERSONALLY responsible for any actions that they take, go read it.
Second, why would it be a bluff now that they have a new toy to play with, it wasn’t with us – we used them. Now we have a new bunch of scum serving, high ranking military who break our LAWS, and the contract that they are under pretty much daily. We have military serving who are taught that instead of our LAWFUL and LEGITIMATE constitutional republic (you know, that Constitution that all takes an Oath to), we are a “democracy”.
The recently serving (Last 3 or 4 decades) are/were NOT taught their lawful duties, etc because then they would NOT “just follow orders” and “just do their jobs” even when unlawful as IS required of them. So instead they just follow orders” and “just do their jobs” while committing TREASON and *TERRORISM. While they are required in writing to just say “NO”, I cannot follow an unlawful order. All of that is also found in writing, plus read the Oath.
Bet you have never read the US Constitution, or even the Constitution of the state you live in, yet you are willing to commit war crimes, etc or send others to do so with no real knowledge if they are even allowed to LAWFULLY do so.
J. Reuben Clark: “God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall run not to individuals, that is, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan our allegiance and the only allegiance we owe as citizens or denizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up. So runs the oath of office of those who participate in government. A certain loyalty we do owe to the office which a man holds, but even here we owe just by reason of our citizenship, no loyalty to the man himself. In other countries it is to the individual that allegiance runs. This principle of allegiance to the Constitution is basic to our freedom. It is one of the great principles that distinguishes this “land of liberty” from other countries”.
Oh, and go read the Nuremberg Trails where this is all implemented and backed up by the decisions made there. Those did not have Oaths, but were still responsible for their actions when they “just followed orders” and “just did their jobs”. They got the death penalty and hung because it the decision to leave it in others hands and follow the orders.
That, today is why the USA is where it is now. Not just the military being so dumbed down deliberately, but also the law enforcement and those who are in civil agencies – yet ALL are required to take and KEEP that Oath to the US Constitution. Everyone (except those that serve as US Presidents) are required to “Support and Defend” the US Constitution before orders of superiors and before the duties of the position being occupied. Those that serve as US Presidents are held to the higher standard of Preserving, Protecting, and Defending the US Constitution.
James Madison: “The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the legislature … the executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.”
George Washington: “The constitution vests the power of declaring war in Congress; therefore no offensive expedition of importance can be undertaken until after they shall have deliberated upon the subject and authorized such a measure.”
James Madison: “In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”
James Madison: “Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied: and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals, engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.
Thanks for the lessons! I’ll be sure to have one of my copies of the Constitution next to me along with my Message Bible when the Nukes are flying! Thanks for the ‘one up’! Do not look into the ‘flash’ and take shelter immediately!
Louisiana Eagle ?
Our US generals have studied and perhaps memorized the Constitution to which they are sworn to uphold, protect and lay down their lives if needed. They also are tasked with a job and tying their hands with Obama era left coast liberal ROE is not going to work!
Louisiana Eagle ?
Dont forget that almost all of the top level brass was replaced under obummer
Who are you referring to as ‘azzwipe’?
Louisiana Eagle ?
hate to do this to you ‘laeagel’; but,
“The NK forces have been in a constant state of preparedness and hostilities with the SOUKSs (and the USA) for decades. I don’t think [the] NK is going to stand down as the SOUKs (and the USA) escalate the ante! It looks like the NK generals (and Un) are ready to call the bluff!”
Guys and gals – this is not some poker game where the worst you lose is the pot/your bets. This is nuclear war & millions dead we’re talking about. And not a few of those millions will be our own boys and girls. The only real option is total commitment – total war, fast, hard, overwhelming, sudden, out-of-the-blue, all cards on the table, nothing left un-used (as a writer here said above…”..an unused weapon is a useless weapon..”), a complete reduction of all defenses and offensive capability as swiftly as possible. And still, many, many, many are going to die. The ‘good’ guys along with the ‘bad’. Question is in war – as always – who’s who?
Thanks for your very insightful comments. I agree, reverse the table and what you said in the first paragraph is absolutely true too! So what? Are you going to continue to standby and let these NORK loonies keep building up their nuclear arsenal? Everyone in previous administrations, if you like, Congress, kept kicking the can down the road. At some point you are going to come to the end of the road, we may have reached that point. Many in the know, feel we have reached that point. Start reading your Constitution Cal, when does the President have the authority to act? Does he have to wait until millions of Americans have died and congress is waiting for instructions from the Constitutionalist experts before he can fight back?
Now, I agree completely with your second paragraph as well. The NORKs have been preparing for this day for a long time. It is time to let them have it! Every resource needs to be brought to bear on the action as swiftly and as completely as humanly possible. Hopefully folks like Cal will allow the generals and our soldiers/CIA/NSA/HSA/civilian contractors to do the work they have been assigned and designated to do without back-seat driving and ROE that severely restrict their capabilities.
Cal, I have seen death, and I have seen the destruction of war. I do not wish it on anyone! There are a lot of innocent people that are likely to get killed and maimed but do you have a choice? Really?
Heartless, Your points make absolutely sense. It is the only way! I truly wish I am wrong!
Like I said in a previous thread, let china handle it. They want to keep that ‘buffer zone’ between them and the US/ROK. Let them replace porky with someone they can live with and stop the missile and nuclear programs. Keep the US out of it.
The US has the technical ability to shoot down these missiles. They’re flying over water so the debris endanger no one. Kim learns from each test. Announce that due to his threats any missile fired that goes beyond NK airspace will be considered a threat. Shoot them down, close the classroom. I’ll bet we can afford more interceptor missiles than he can afford ICBMs.
Ignore his childlike rant as our reply just booster his image to his people. “Get away from me kid you bother me”.
But if our government does that
Than their scare tactics won’t work
This is all theater , theater and distractions
The fact that China , Russia, and Japan are doing nothing about this
Indicates to me , it’s all smoke and mirrors for distracting from the real goals
In reality you make a logical analysis.
totally agree. Its all theater to scare the public. However, i am far more worried about SYRIA
This story is based on a CNN article/piece. Always need to take what they say with a grain of salt and question the heck out of their motives. CNN is the mouthpiece of the ‘Globullshitters’! Worse than Pravda!
Screw armistice. What part of “I want this to happen” are you not grasping?
Let me explain it as simply as I can… I. Want. This. To. Happen.
Why in the hell are we involved over there in the first place? NK is a shithole on the other side of the ocean. Let the surrounding countries deal with it. SK alone has twice the population of NK and an economy 35 times greater. Why must the US do the dying, expending our money, using up our resources? It appears the countries around NK aren’t concerned too much about the situation or aren’t motivated to deal with them; they know that the US will squander its own blood and treasure. If NK attacks us then we should of course respond, even destroy them, but other than that we should mind our own business. SK allows the US military on their soil not because they like us, but because they want us to do the fighting and dying. TPTB here are perfectly willing to use our fighting men as disposable to for their own geopolitical/financial schemes.
5.8 earthquake in Montana. Shallow. Yesterday I posted that there were no 2.5 earthquakes or larger for over half a day, in the continental US. Somewhat unusual. I suggested that pressure was building. Even a broken watch is right twice a day.
Well, this is exactly what happens when you allow the crazed, FAT BOY to run amuck instead of dropping the hammer BEFORE they had a Nuke…Now what?? As I have said many times, these slimy Gooks should of been dealt with many years ago. Good job Clinton, Bush and Barry Muslim Hussein.
The US bombed North Korea into oblivion in the Korean conflict. When there were no real targets left standing, the Generals decided to bomb the dams. This destroyed much of the food supply of North Korea and contributed to a famine. A war crime.
So, what are the leaders of North Korea to do when the Empire runs drills simulating a nuclear bomb being dropped on North Korea? Laugh and cheer? They have every right to defend themselves when being threatened by Empire…even if it is mostly useless in the face of power.
Why is DC so interested in provoking this country? Perhaps there are resources that Empire would wish to control with a puppet government installed. This is the MO of the US foreign policy.
North Korea has one of the largest supplies of rare earths in the world. Cobalt is used in all electronics. Currently, the US cobalt supply comes from the Congo (yes, a puppet leader) but should more be needed North Korea has it. Possible since all wars are resource wars.
All modern wars perpetuated by the west must be described as “Banker wars”. One only has to follow the gold. The following countries were without a Rothschild owned or controlled central bank in the year 2000: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba
All had gold reserves that secretly vanished in the ensuing chaos of induced unrest.
The following countries were without a Rothschild owned or controlled central bank in the year 2017: Syria, Iran, North Korea, Cuba
So who are these people? From their own website:
“ Established on 17 May 1930, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is an international financial organization owned by 60 member central banks, representing countries from around the world that together make up about 95% of world GDP. Its head office is in Basel, Switzerland and it has two representative offices: in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China and in Mexico City.
The mission of the BIS is to serve central banks in their pursuit of monetary and financial stability, to foster international cooperation in those areas and to act as a bank for central banks.
With regard to its banking activities, the customers of the BIS are central banks and international organizations. As a bank, the BIS does not accept deposits from, or provide financial services to, private individuals or corporate entities.”
Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild is famously quoted as stating “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws”. What did he mean by this? And who are these international organizations in bed with the BIS?
To understand it is helpful to follow their misadventures in the Ukraine. The induced regime change in the Ukraine installed western banker representatives to replace the deposed democratically elected government. Once they were installed they immediately stole the Ukrainians 40 tons of gold which was secretly loaded at night onto C5 Galaxy aircraft at a temporarily closed international airport in the Ukraine. Following the real money, the purpose of the BIS is to manage the reserves of the individual central banks and this hinges on that tier one asset, gold bullion. Precious metals are the premier asset that can signal the true end game of any fiat debt based monetary scheme which is its ultimate failure when national debts become unpayable. So the price of gold is manipulated to keep confidence in the premier fiat currency. Consequently the gold flows west to east and a constant supply of physical bullion is required to maintain the illusion.
But now the combination of Russia, China and India absorb all the global annual production from the gold mines. Where and how are the western central banks to acquire their needed bullion demands? The pattern is obvious.
Their control of global finances and uncontrolled greed naturally allowed their tentacles to grow deep. Encircling governments, sanctioning the non compliant, because extortion and forcing regime change is much easier than mining for gold, especially when you control a great military and the production thereof. Thus develops a central control mindset, a Global oneness, a new world order wanting to install their replacement single financial instrument. The Special Drawing Right. A fitting name but their fears lie within us.
It is apparent that military resistance to them is not to be feared as much as their being brought to justice by the people hence the requirement for a second front against the people in their war for global domination. Allow the collapse, control the reset. And if it takes mushroom clouds to hide us tip toeing past the gallows, so be it.
With hyperbole put aside, they now push for global domination and sneer at our Constitution because they usurped that in 1913. It was but a small step in their pursuit. But it is the one that bothers me the most.
Hyperbole says that we have wandered from our path, are lost and now face a precipice. We must back track to that first misplaced step to regain the path. Or not and accept the fact that you are not special enough to have a drawing right. The end of the Federal Note is at hand, thankfully. But who will control the reset is critical for any chance to backtrack to our path. If we do not we will follow the dictated new path, the one forming at the bottom of the precipice for it seems that only those that survive the fall will get to choose. A worthless bank note or gold bullion? One can see why they seek gold by all means possible. Gold fever is a unique human trait that is hard to control for they can affect greed and use it to their benefit they have not yet mastered it. It is a mistake to think that the use of sound money can be vanquished by manipulated fiat or digital.
Our Constitution and Bill of Rights as written controlled them and their greed. We now face their consequence because when they shoved us from the path in 1913 we did not shove back to regain control of the path. We have been led and bled ever since. Now we are overwhelmed by a standing army using technology allowing them to immediately pounce upon those that would seek redress.
The way to go forward is to go back to our founding principles for we, just as our founders did and as described in founding documents, must fight to create a country that you have never experienced.
Maybe a Constitutional reaffirmation could peacefully accomplish it but the theft of peace is the greatest take of the banker for it allows for the control of the peoples will. Their pursuit of all of everything will result in them gaining all of nothing. But for now their control is complete. They are all in and now it is all or nothing for them. For us, it is all of nothing.
Grandpa, great post, thanks.
The future seems pretty bleak.
Seems he would have the ability to make bio weapons? Could we be being blackmailed with pre positioned bio weapons? Who knows the truth? All we can do is try to be ready .
OK to all you blowhards complaining about how the US is BAD, EVIL, WARMONGER, etc, and how we should leave poor little defenseless Kimmie alone, you would be screaming bloody murder if the US let little Kimmie build his nuke arsenal and leveled several major US cities! WAHHHHHHH!!!! WHY DIDNT TRUMP STOP HIM BEFORE HE COULD NUKE US! WAHHHHHHH!
STFU already. I’m also sick of reading how the US is a puppet of Israel.
“I’m also sick of reading how the US is a puppet of Israel.”
Yeah, I’m sick of reading that too.
How in the world did our forefathers let it happen?
Wake up people!
This is all HOAX, FAKE, LIES, NONSENSE.
Do you people really think the media will tell you the truth about North Korea when:
We know 9/11 was an inside job
We know 7/7 London Underground was an inside job
We know International Banksters control the Presidency no matter if Democrat or Republican.
We know the media lies to us about vaccines.
We know the media lies to us about internet spying, cellphone spying, wifi spying.
We know the media lies to us about the FEDERAL RESERVE and the Debt.
We know the media lies.
Yet you people believe them when they speak of North Korea ?
Wake the hell up people and start thinking instead of using your emotions and pride !
China: “Oh no what will we do” (hand wring).
You tell me buddy, they’re your allies. Which makes this your problem doesn’t it?
Or do you really believe that if they hit one of our cities we won’t hold you culpable as well, since you are.
“Self restraint is the only thing between armistice and war.”
Self restraint is the only thing between most people and the Nation’s traitors. You know who you are.
its all a diversion. Syria is the next War.
Lets be realistic….at this point in time the Norks MAY or MAY NOT have a handful of functional warheads. They are still working on missiles that can actually go somewhere…and even then there is no guarantee that anything they stick on the missile will go boom when it arrives at wherever it’s pointed. Making plutonium/uranium go BOOM in a controlled lab setting is tough….the Norks are still working on that. Making an actual warhead that will fit a delivery system and reliably go boom when it’s supposed to is an order of magnitude more difficult. And once they get the bugs worked out they won’t have more than a handful of missiles and warheads for a while. IF…and that is the question….if, we decide to take out the Norks they are AT THIS TIME not a credible nuclear threat. In the future? Maybe. But right now they can only hurt people in close geographic proximity….i.e. South Korea and maybe parst of Japan. If we decide to take Kim Jong Unsane out the ONLY way things “go nuclear” is if Russia/China decide to weigh in on the side of the Norks.
5 or 10 years from now things may or may not be different. But right now the Norks are NOT a credible
nuclear threat…..their putative ALLIES are the threat.
