The very country where men and women have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our life and liberty just ain’t fair.? It’s time to wave the BS flag with this new American-made shirt!

If North Korea bombs us, the military should kneel & let the NFL players handle it!

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

The USS Ronald Reagan Just Got Its Orders… “Rocket Man” Is Gonna Be Ticked

The USS Ronald Reagan just got orders, and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is not going to be happy about them.

The Yonhap News Agency reported Sunday that the Navy is moving the aircraft carrier to the Korean Peninsula, where it will conduct training drills with the USS Carl Vinson, according an unnamed defense official.

The joint drills carried out by the two carriers are to “detect, track and intercept the North’s ballistic missiles, in addition to anti-submarine warfare training,” the official told Yonhap.

“We are in consultations (with the U.S.) on a plan for the aircraft strike group led by the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan to operate in the East Sea around Oct. 15,” Yonhap reported.

“The Reagan will likely be accompanied by several other warships belonging to the strike group, such as an Aegis destroyer, a guided-missile cruiser and a nuclear-powered submarine,” the report continued.

A U.S. Forces Korea official said the training would occur around Oct. 20, adding that an exact schedule had not been set. The official also said that the joint drill was “prearranged” and not a response to the growing tensions with North Korea.

Rear Admiral Marc Dalton, commander of the Reagan’s strike group, told the South China Morning Post the development was to keep the military ready to defend U.S. allies as well as maintain stability in the area.

“The United States has been very clear about leveraging all options in order to get North Korea to change its path,” Dalton said.

Kim must be getting a little nervous with this latest show of military might. We will have to wait and see how he responds to a group of warships just outside his back door.

Rocket Man vs. Mentally Deranged U.S. Dotard – September 22, 2017

President Trump (in his speech to the U.N.): “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”

Rocket Man (in his speech responding to Trump): “I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.”

CNN adds that North Korea’s foreign minister suggested a possible hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific might be in order.

Rocket Man Responds

The NYT has the full text of Kim Jong Un’s response to Trump’s U.N. threat here:

The speech made by the U.S. president in his maiden address on the U.N. arena in the prevailing serious circumstances, in which the situation on the Korean Peninsula has been rendered tense as never before and is inching closer to a touch-and-go state, is arousing worldwide concern.

Shaping the general idea of what he would say, I expected he would make stereotyped, prepared remarks a little different from what he used to utter in his office on the spur of the moment as he had to speak on the world’s biggest official diplomatic stage.

But, far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors.

A frightened dog barks louder.

I’d like to advise Trump to exercise prudence in selecting words and to be considerate of whom he speaks to when making a speech in front of the world.

The mentally deranged behavior of the U.S. president openly expressing on the U.N. arena the unethical will to “totally destroy” a sovereign state, beyond the boundary of threats of regime change or overturn of social system, makes even those with normal thinking faculty think about discretion and composure.

His remarks remind me of such words as “political layman” and “political heretic” which were in vogue in reference to Trump during his presidential election campaign.

After taking office Trump has rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail against all countries in the world. He is unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country, and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician.

His remarks which described the U.S. option through straightforward expression of his will have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last.

Now that Trump has denied the existence of and insulted me and my country in front of the eyes of the world and made the most ferocious declaration of a war in history that he would destroy the D.P.R.K. [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea], we will consider with seriousness exercising of a corresponding, highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.

Action is the best option in treating the dotard who, hard of hearing, is uttering only what he wants to say.

As a man representing the D.P.R.K. and on behalf of the dignity and honor of my state and people and on my own, I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying the D.P.R.K.

This is not a rhetorical expression loved by Trump.

I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue.

Whatever Trump might have expected, he will face results beyond his expectation.

I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire.

US And Allies Send Military Message To North Korea

The three nations threatened by North Korea’s nuclear missile program united for a show of force Sunday aimed at reminding Kim Jong-un’s regime that they have dominant air power in the Korean skies.

The United States sent four fighters and two bombers to fly alongside four South Korean fighters over the region near the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas. The U.S. aircraft also joined four Japanese fighters to fly over the waters near Kyushu, a Japanese island in close proximity to the Korean Peninsula.

The American planes included two B-1B Lancer bombers from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam, and four Marine Corps F-35B fighters from the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan, according to U.S. Pacific Command.

It is the second time in the past month that B-1Bs and F-35s have been sent over the Korean Peninsula.

The Pacific Command said the jets, which conducted live-fire exercises, were sent up in response to the Sept. 14 launch of a North Korean missile. The missile flew over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.

The military exercise came as U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley reminded the word that the United States is getting tired of talking about a resolution to the North Korean crisis.

“If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,” Haley said. “And we all know that, and none of us want that.”

Haley said the U.S. has been doing everything it can to find a diplomatic solution for the crisis, while leaving military action as a possible last resort.

“We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first. If that doesn’t work, General Mattis will take care of it,” she said, referencing Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said time has all but run out.

“This regime is so close now to threatening the United States and others with a nuclear weapon, that we really have to move with a great sense of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy and preparing, if necessary, a military option,” McMaster told Fox News Sunday. 

Red Alert: KJU Launches Missile Aimed at New Target… War Is Coming


Reported

Reports began breaking Monday afternoon that the rogue regime in North Korea had fired off yet another ballistic missile in a provocative manner, this time sending one on a trajectory toward the nearby island nation of Japan. According to Reuters, the missile was fired in the early hours of Tuesday morning in Japan time, crossed over the northern Hokkaido section of Japan and broke apart into three pieces, crashing harmlessly into the Pacific Ocean.

Nevertheless, the Japanese government issued an alert to citizens to take any precautions necessary and prepare for the worst. The missile flying over Japan was the first time North Korea has made such an aggressive move since 2009 and marks a “sharp escalation in tensions on the Korean Peninsula,” Reuters reported.

Japan reportedly did not make any effort to shoot down the missile tracking through their sky, despite currently practicing to do just such a thing with anti-missile batteries deployed at U.S. bases in Japan, according to the Los Angeles Times.

According to Agence France-Presse, the “unidentified ballistic missile” was fired from the Sunan region near the capital of Pyongyang, overflying Japanese territory to crash in the East Sea, part of the Sea of Japan.

“South Korea and the US are jointly analysing for details,” stated a media release from the South Korean military’s Joint Chief of Staff’s office.

A spokesman for the Japanese government said the launch was viewed as a “serious, grave security threat” to the Asian nation, and that “full steps” were being taken to ensure the continued safety of Japanese citizens.

It is thought that the most recent launch — which came just days after three smaller short-range missiles were launched to minimal effect — was in response to the start of a new round of military exercises in the region conducted jointly by U.S. forces and their South Korean counterparts.

The launch also comes at a time when virtually the entire world — including China and Russia, at least publicly — are urging North Korea to refrain from such provocative actions.

Obviously, it remains to be seen if there will be any sort of response to this latest missile launch, as President Donald Trump has promised to unleash fire and fury on the communist nation if it attacked any United States territory. South Korean President Moon Jae-in suggested his nation “immediately switch to offensive operations” if the North crossed an unspecified line with its provocations, according to Business Insider.

Of course, we will be sure to update you with any further information as this story continues to develop.

War might not be the inevitable result of North Korean provocations, but it’s coming closer with every step Kim takes.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to let everyone know that Kim Jong Un just fired off another missile, this time toward Japan.

China Announces It Will Implement Tough Sanctions Against North Korea


Reported 

URL of the original posting site: http://www.westernjournalism.com/china-announces-will-implement-tough-sanctions-north-korea/

For the second time in recent days, China took a major step to put pressure on North Korea to resolve its standoff with the United States over North Korea’s missile development efforts. The Chinese government announced Monday it will implement the sanctions that were imposed against North Korea by the United Nations on Aug. 5.

The Security Council sanctions block nations from accepting North Korea’s primary exports, including coal, iron, iron ore, lead and seafood. The sanctions also target other revenue streams, such as banks and joint ventures with foreign companies. The sanctions could cost North Korea a third of its $3 billion annual export revenue.

Although China did not block the sanctions at the U.N., it was unclear until the announcement whether China, which is North Korea’s largest trading partner, would implement them. China also faces possible action from President Donald Trump, who has said he may order an investigation into allegations of unfair Chinese trade practices.

“It is obviously improper to use one thing as a tool to imposing pressure on another thing,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Monday. “There will be no winner from a trade war, it will be lose-lose.”

China’s action to implement the sanctions came days after a state-run newspaper said that if North Korea attacks the United States, it will fight any war that results on its own.

“China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten U.S. soil first and the U.S. retaliates, China will stay neutral,” the Global Times editorial said.

Throughout the escalation of tensions between the United States and North Korea, China has called for restraint.

“The current situation on the Korean Peninsula is complicated and sensitive,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in a statement Friday.

“China hopes that all relevant parties will be cautious in their words and actions, and do things that help to alleviate tensions and enhance mutual trust, rather than walk on the old pathway of taking turns in shows of strength, and upgrading the tensions,” he said.

Writing in The Washington Post, David Von Drehle said China needs to emerge from the North Korean-American showdown with a win.

” … the audience of greatest concern to China — namely, the other leading countries in the region, including Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam — faces the urgent question of whether they can trust a rising China to share in safeguarding their sphere. If the problem of Kim isn’t defused, those nations are sure to seek even deeper alliances with the United States while building their own military capacity. China’s regional influence will shrink rather than grow,” he wrote.

Sub Activity Days After ICBM Test Is Frightening

North Korea seems intent on provoking the United States… and their latest exercise has definitely gained our attention. Just days after another long-range missile test, the communist nation has conducted what the Pentagon is calling “highly unusual and unprecedented levels” of submarine activity.

According to CNN, that activity goes beyond routine sea maneuvers, and likely involves an “ejection test.” As the name implies, the test is related to launching missiles from submarines hidden underwater, and suggests that the rogue country could be closer to having ICBM submarines than observers previously believed.

While North Korea’s missile capabilities have been largely mocked by the West, the reclusive nation seems to have made significant advances in the past year — and its military abilities are no longer a laughing matter.

“Coupled with reports of increased submarine activity, news of another ejection test comes amid concerns over North Korea’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears to have the range to hit major US cities on Friday,” CNN explained.

“Experts believe if Friday’s test had been fired on a flatter, standard trajectory, it could have threatened cities like Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago,” continued the report.

The combination of submarine launch testing and long-range ICBM demonstrations means that North Korea may be able to strike key Western targets in the near future.

While the small nation’s submarines are nowhere near as advanced as the United States’ vessels, even a basic diesel-electric submarine can be difficult to detect. This means that a lone sub could possibly move closer to a target and leave precious little reaction time available in the event of a missile launch.

President Donald Trump assured reporters that the U.S. is taking the North Korean threat seriously, but didn’t reveal the specifics of a strategy.

“We will handle North Korea. We are gonna be able to handle them,” the president stated.

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders clarified that “all options are on the table” in terms of an American response.

Underestimating an enemy is never wise. Trump and the United States as a whole needs to address North Korea soon, before saber rattling turns to saber swinging.
