"South Korea to resume anti-North propaganda broadcasts" by Foster Klug Associated Press January 07, 2016
SEOUL — The loudspeaker broadcasts, starting Friday — the day believed to be the birthday of young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — are certain to infuriate authoritarian North Korean leaders because they are meant to raise questions about the infallibility of the ruling Kim family.
And who knows what he might do, huh? He might lash out!
Of course, that is what this whore of a war-mongering pre$$ is doing.
It is really distasteful to see them flailing about trying to get any and all wars going. I'd say they were trying to start WWIII, but the fact is we have been in WWIII for at least 12 years now. Started with the invasion of Iraq in 2003. I'm a historian. I should know.
South Korea stopped earlier broadcasts after it agreed with Pyongyang in late August on a package of measures aimed at easing animosities that had the rivals threatening war.
Experts, meanwhile, are seeking details about the detonation. It may take weeks or longer to confirm or refute the North’s claim.
Then let us all agree there will be no military action until after then, huh?
Even a test of an atomic bomb would push its scientists and engineers closer to their goal of building a nuclear warhead small enough to place on a missile that could reach the US mainland.
For some reason, I'm not afraid of that scenario nor of the North Korean leader.
I'm afraid of my own government because its being run and controlled by globe-kicking, mass-murdering psychopaths.
The White House said that President Obama had spoken to South Korea’s president, Park Geun-Hye, and to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. The statements said the countries ‘‘agreed to work together to forge a united and strong international response to North Korea’s latest reckless behavior.’’
Obama reaffirmed the ‘‘unshakeable US commitment’’ to the security of South Korea and Japan, according to the statements.
Park’s office said she also spoke with Abe by phone, and they vowed cooperation to ensure that the UN Security Council imposes strong and effective measures against the North.
To be explained soon.
South Korean and US military leaders also discussed the deployment of US ‘‘strategic assets’’ following the North’s test, the Defense Ministry in Seoul said Thursday.
What could that mean?
Ministry officials refused to elaborate on what US military assets were under consideration, but they probably refer to B-52 bombers, F-22 stealth fighters, and nuclear-powered submarines.
When animosities rose sharply in spring 2013, after North Korea’s third nuclear test, the United States took the unusual step of sending its most powerful warplanes — B-2 stealth bombers, F-22 stealth fighters, and B-52 bombers — to drills with South Korea in a show of force. B-2 and B-52 bombers are capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
From a president who said Iran couldn't have one they were not building, who is modernizing his arsenal as he preaches non-proliferation (silent on Israel's arsenal, of course). What an odious creature is he.
The UN Security Council held an emergency session and pledged to swiftly pursue new sanctions against North Korea, saying its test was a clear violation of previous UN resolutions.
Four rounds of UN sanctions have aimed at reining in the North’s nuclear and missile development programs, but Pyongyang has ignored them and moved ahead to modernize its ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.
In August, Seoul signed a package of agreements with Pyongyang on easing the standoff, which included a stop to broadcasts unless an ‘‘abnormal’’ situation should occur again. Senior presidential official Cho Tae-yong said Thursday that the broadcast will resume because the North’s bomb test was a violation of the August agreement.
South Korea also said Thursday that it will limit entry to a jointly run factory park in North Korea, the last major symbol of inter-Korean cooperation. The park’s operation won’t likely be affected much, as the restriction will apply to clients, potential buyers, and service providers from South Korea, rather than managers who commute to work with North Korean laborers.
That is web addition that wasn't in print.
What is with the shell-game censorship anyway?
North Korea said Wednesday it had successfully tested a ‘‘miniaturized’’ hydrogen bomb that elevated the country’s ‘‘nuclear might to the next level.’’ But an early analysis by the US government was ‘‘not consistent with the claims that the regime has made of a successful hydrogen bomb test,’’ the White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.
Nevertheless, the U.S. is sending nuclear weapons to the region. This isn't about confronting North Korea; this is about maneuvering things into place against China. 2016 is the BIG SHOW, folks.
South Korea’s spy service said it thought the estimated explosive yield from the blast was much smaller than what even a failed hydrogen bomb detonation would produce.
Some believe North Korea might have detonated a boosted fission bomb, a weapon considered halfway between an atomic bomb and an H-bomb.
So he was bluffing?
Seems like they called him on it so why all the saber rattling?
I would just like to say, before the nuclear missiles start flying, that it has been an honor and a privilege to have served you all these years.
I want to thank each and every reader for coming here and spending their valuable time no matter what your endeavor.
I love you all, and you kept me going long after I've wanted to quit.
I'd say Happy New Year, but it is not off to a good start at all and experience has told me it is only going to get worse.
With that, I'm going to be gone the rest of the day. I have a birthday party to attend.
