    North Korea calls terror relisting 'serious provocation' by Trump
    Reuters, Nov 22 2017 2:36 PM

    North Korea today denounced U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to relist it as a state sponsor of terrorism, calling it a "serious provocation and violent infringement," North Korean state media reported. Trump put North Korea back on a list of state sponsors of terrorism on Monday, a designation that allows the United States to impose more sanctions and risks inflaming tension over North Korea's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

    A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry denied in an interview with the state media outlet KCNA that his government engaged in any terrorism. He called the state sponsor of terrorism label "just a tool for American style authoritarianism that can be attached or removed at any time in accordance with its interests." The U.S. designation only made North Korea more committed to strengthening its nuclear arsenal, the official said, adding, "The U.S. will be held entirely accountable for all the consequences to be entailed by its impudent provocation."

    Report says North Korea’s nuclear target list includes White House
    Geobeats, Nov 23 2017 3:43 PM

    A report compiled by the European Council on Foreign Relations lists what are, according to inside sources, North Korea’s top missile-strike targets. They include the United States mainland at large and specifically the White House, the Pentagon and Manhattan. The intelligence gathered by the council also suggests that nuclear weapons could be used to attack each of those sites.

    Under what circumstances North Korea would launch a nuclear missile is unclear, as, according to the report, "Unlike other nuclear-armed states, it has not published a clear official statement setting out its nuclear doctrine – the circumstances under which it would launch a strike." The council further notes that the reclusive country may believe striking first would be to its advantage due to the slim chances that its regime would remain intact if the U.S. were the first to attack.

    When I was a young boy, all the air raid sirens throughout Los Angeles were tested at 10 AM on the last Friday of each month. If we heard the sirens at any other time, we would know we were under attack -- but that never happened. Eventually the monthly tests were stopped. In 2017, however, world affairs are necessitating some changes:

    Trump calls North Korea's ballistic missile launch 'a situation that we will handle'
    Reuters, Nov 28 2017 4:39 PM

    President Donald Trump said today that the United States "will take care of" the North Korea issue after its latest missile launch and that the basic U.S. approach to dealing with Pyongyang will not change. Trump has tightened sanctions on North Korea and pressured China to do more to help rein in Pyongyang's ballistic missile and nuclear ambitions. North Korea today fired what the U.S. Pentagon said appeared to be an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that landed close to Japan. "We will take care of it. It is a situation that we will handle," Trump told reporters during a meeting with Republican congressional leaders at the White House.

    Images of North Korea's latest missile launch reveal a big problem for the US
    Business Insider, Nov 30 2017

    Analysis of North Korea's latest missile launch reveals a bigger, better rocket that has been domestically built. The US remains determined to stop North Korea from building a credible nuclear force but it's looking less likely it will be able to do so diplomatically. The US ambassador to the UN said the launch took the US "closer to war" but experts say the US may just have to accept North Korea as a nuclear state.

    Photos released by North Korean media show the launch process as supervised by the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, and reveal a new missile, the Hwasong-15, that is unlike anything previously seen from the nation. "This is a very big missile," Michael Duitsman, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, tweeted. "And I don't mean 'big for North Korea.' Only a few countries can produce missiles of this size and North Korea just joined the club."

    Hawaii tests nuclear alarms as North Korea threat escalates
    Veuer, Dec 2 2017 11:03 AM

    Hawaii has tested its nuclear attack siren amid rising US tensions with North Korea. It's the first time they've sounded the alarm since the end of the Cold War. Loud sirens were heard wailing across the region on Friday and they will be repeated on the first business day of each month going forward.

    When the alarm is sounded, tourists and residents are advised to seek shelter immediately and to remain there until local radio and television broadcasts announce an all-clear message. In the event of a real nuclear attack, the sirens will serve as a 15-minute warning to residents to take cover. Officials say that’s how long a nuclear missile would take to get to Hawaii from North Korea. The test occurred just days after North Korea launched a ballistic missile they claimed was "capable of striking anywhere in the US."

    North Korea says Trump is 'begging' for nuclear war
    Bloomberg, Dec 2 2017 4:58 PM

    North Korea said the U.S. is "begging" for a nuclear war by planning the "largest-ever" joint aerial drill with South Korea just after concluding an exercise with nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. "Should the Korean peninsula and the world be embroiled in the crucible of nuclear war because of the reckless nuclear war mania of the U.S., the U.S. will have to accept full responsibility for it," North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said Saturday, citing a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Six U.S. Raptor stealth fighters planes arrived in South Korea on Saturday for a joint air drill named "Vigilant Ace" scheduled for December 4-8. The F-22s flew into South Korea together in a show of force and, according to Yonhap News, the allies plan to stage simulated attacks on mock North Korean nuclear and missile targets. North Korea’s comments mirror a statement KCNA made last month, saying Washington is seeking to ignite a nuclear war after U.S. B-1B nuclear strategic bombers stationed in Guam flew into South Korea to stage a drill.

    North Korea says war is near as the US doubles down with back-to-back bomber runs
    Business Insider, Dec 8 2017

    The US has doubled down by ordering provocative B-1 bomber flights near the North Korean border. At the same time, Pyongyang has warned that war is right around the corner. Both Russia and North Korea have blamed the US for increased tensions. The ultimate US goal is to denuclearize North Korea — and deliberate escalation may be part of that.

    "Exclusive" might just be another word for "Unverified" and "Uncorroborated." Be that as it may.......

    Exclusive: US making plans for 'bloody nose’ military attack on North Korea
    The Telegraph, Dec 20 2017 8:30 PM

    America is drawing up plans for a "bloody nose" military attack on North Korea to stop its nuclear weapons program. The White House has "dramatically" stepped up preparation for a military solution in recent months amid fears diplomacy is not working, well-placed sources told The Telegraph. One option is destroying a launch site before it is used by the regime for a new missile test. Stockpiles of weapons could also be targeted. The hope is that military force would show Kim Jong-un that America is "serious" about stopping further nuclear development and trigger negotiations.
