Nuclear War to Be Conducted on Korean Peninsula
Pyongyang, March 29 (KCNA) -- A nuclear war has turned out to be an established one on the Korean Peninsula.
Despite the repeated warnings of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the United States, for the first time, made B-2A fly from Whiteman air force base in Missouri State over south Korea on March 28 to launch an exercise of striking ground targets aimed at the DPRK.
Earlier, a formation of U.S. B-52 based in Anderson air-force base on Guam flew to the sky above south Korea and staged nuclear war exercises striking simulated in-depth targets of the DPRK.
Meanwhile, the U.S. deputy secretary of Defense flew to south Korea to finally examine the preparations for a nuclear war against the DPRK and openly said that the U.S. military attaches top priority to the second Korean war, giving green light to a nuclear war.
Accordingly, the commander of the U.S. forces in south Korea and the south Korean military chief drafted a "plan to jointly cope with local provocation". The main point of it is to start a total nuclear war involving the U.S. forces in the U.S. mainland and the Pacific region after the south Korean forces touch off a conflict.
The south Korean warmongers, elated with the backing of the U.S. master, are threatening punishment to "provocation" of the DPRK and even seeking to mount precision missile strikes on the statues of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, symbol of the DPRK's dignity.
The U.S. even let the conservative media of south Korea reveal the process of the 2010 operation against Osama bin Laden. It openly said the operational plan of "south Korea-U.S. combined forces" includes targeting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK with the use of lethal striking means and methods of the U.S. imperialist aggression forces and the south Korean puppet army.
All the developments clearly show that the U.S. and south Korean aggression moves to conquer the DPRK, the strategic vantage, are leading to an outbreak of a nuclear war.
Under the present situation reminiscent of the eve of the Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953), the army and the people of the DPRK have turned out for a sacred war of justice for defending the nation's destiny.
Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Marshal Kim Jong Un at 00:30 Friday finally examined and ratified the plan for firepower strike of the KPA strategic rocket forces so that they may strike any time the U.S. mainland and its military bases in Hawaii, Guam and south Korea. All weapons of the KPA have already aimed at the bases while the Worker-Peasant Red Guards and the Young Red Guards are on standby for action.
It is the steadfast will of the DPRK to react to the U.S. nuclear blackmail with merciless nuclear attacks, and war of aggression with a total war of justice.
No doubt they has thousands ofrockets. But I doubt they have very many missiles...and none which can reach CONUS.
The chihuahua is barking as the adults conduct war games. When the games are over the chihuahua will lift his little leg on the fence and prance back and forth in victory.
These people are really nuts - accusing the US of provoking a nuclear war????
Obama’s new personal residence is in Hawaii. When NORKs threaten his house, they risk suicide by cop.
you do realize that they do this several times a day, on a good day and his bluster really isn’t anything different or new.
We don’t need no stinkin B2s there is a Nuclear Sub just off the coast that can obliterate there so called country in a heart beat!
But I doubt they have very many missiles...and none which can reach CONUS.
Ive read the North can put a million artillery shells per hour into Soul. And, as satisfying as a nuclear strike might seem to some, the genie has been back in the bottle 68 years. Using nukes will represent a sea change and there are many more nukes around than youd imagine. The real fear of nukes isnt that theyll be launched from countries, which will give us the return address, but that theyll be assembled in the US and we wont know where they came from. Non-state actors will probably have nukes shortly, if they dont already. Chinese warlords, Russian robber barons and Pakistani militants are only some of the actors with potential access to nukes. Also, dont forget a conventional bomb salted with nuclear material could potentially render millions of acres uninhabitable. What if they did it to New York? This is why we need a blustering crazy-seeming badass in the White House stomping around in cowboy boots and mispronouncing nuclear; somebody with no understanding of the subtleties of diplomacy.
Another War of Northern Aggression?
All your base are belong to us.
What I want to know, is where is the nuclear football when Obama is out on the golf course? I mean, could we have a nuclear attack and the un-kim show up and take, say LA, like Peter Sellers in the Mouse that Roared? And all because our own Dear Leader was awol golfing when it happened?
Both North Korean nuclear tests look suspiciously like a Super-EMP weapon. A Super-EMP warhead would have a low yield, like the North Korean device, because it is not designed to create a big explosion, but to convert its energy into gamma rays, that generate the EMP effect. Reportedly South Korean military intelligence concluded, independent of the EMP Commission, that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop a Super-EMP warhead. In 2012, a military commentator for the Peoples Republic of China stated that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.
A Super-EMP warhead would not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Koreas ICBM. The missile does not have to be accurate, as the EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the United States would have catastrophic consequences. The warhead does not even need a re-entry vehicle, as an EMP attack entails detonating the warhead at high-altitude, above the atmosphere.
So, as of Dec. 12, North Koreas successful orbit of a satellite demonstrates its ability to make an EMP attack against the United States right now.
North Korea appears to have borrowed more from the Russians than the design of a Super-EMP warhead.
During the Cold War, the USSR experimented with a secret weapon, the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS), that used an ICBM like a Space Launch Vehicle to put a nuclear warhead into orbit, like a satellite. Instead of using the ICBM to lob the warhead on a more accurate arcing ballistic trajectory, flying along the shortest range to target, like an artillery shell, the FOBS lofted the warhead into a "fractional" or partial orbit, sacrificing accuracy for limitless range.
FOBS could reach any nation or threaten any target anywhere on Earth.
A Super-EMP warhead does not weigh much, and could probably be delivered by North Korea's Fractional Orbital Bombardment System, successfully tested in December 2012, against any nation on Earth. Thus, North Korea already possesses an ICBM and poses a mortal nuclear threat to the United States, and to all nations on Earth--right now.
North Korea, during the successful test of its ICBM on December 12, 2012, orbited a satellite weighing 100 kilograms (about 200 pounds). One design of a Super-EMP warhead would be a modified neutron bomb, more accurately an Enhanced Radiation Warhead (ERW) because it produces not only many neutrons but also many gamma rays. As noted earlier, gamma rays cause the EMP effect. One U.S. ERW warhead (the W-82) deployed in NATO during the Cold War weighed, including its heavy casing, less than 50 kilograms. Since the EMP attack entails detonating the warhead at high-altitude, above the atmosphere, the warhead does not even need a heavy re-entry vehicle and heat shield.
North Korea's ICBM does not have to be accurate to make an EMP attack against the United States.
The EMP field is so large that detonating anywhere over the U.S. would have catastrophic consequences. North Korea orbited its satellite around the Earth at an altitude of about 500 kilometers. The trajectory of North Korea's satellite is no accident--they deliberately aimed for and achieved this orbit and altitude, as announced before their launch.
An altitude of 500 kilometers would be ideal for making an EMP attack that places the field over the entire lower 48 United States.
North Korea's ICBM, delivering an EMP attack by means of an inaccurate satellite warhead, would likely miss its horizontal aimpoint over the geographic center of the U.S. by tens of kilometers. Bursting the warhead at an altitude of 500 kilometers would compensate for this inaccuracy by creating an EMP field big enough to cover everything. North Korea's satellite did not pass over the United States--but a slight adjustment in its trajectory would have flown it over or near the U.S. bull's eye for a high-altitude EMP burst.
The primary purpose of the Fractional Orbital Bombardments System, that North Korea appears to have borrowed from Russia, is to make a surprise nuclear attack. FOBS is stealthy as it can strike from any direction, from unexpected directions, not just from the shortest direction or by using the trajectory that would be normal for an ICBM. Because FOBS looks like a Space Launch Vehicle, not an ICBM making a nuclear attack, this disguise optimizes chances for achieving surprise.
During the Cold War, Moscow experimented with a stealthy way of delivering a nuclear attack on the United States using a Fractional Orbital Bombardment System to elude radar detection. This would entail launching an ICBM southward, away from the United States, so it appears non-threatening, and delivering the warhead like a satellite on a south polar orbit, so the nuclear attack comes at the U.S. from the south.
During the Cold War--and today--the United States has no Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars or missile interceptors facing south. We would not even see an attack from the south coming.
One signature of a Super-EMP weapon is that it has a very low explosive yield, just several kilotons, or even less if it is more efficient, because the weapon is converting the energy of the nuclear warhead into gamma rays.
In 2004, the Russian generals told the EMP Commission that North Korea was getting help developing a Super-EMP nuclear weapon from contractors from Russia, China, Pakistan and elsewhere, and could probably test such a weapon "in a few years." A few years later, in 2006, North Korea tested its mysterious "nuclear device" that produced an explosive yield of only several kilotons, and so was derided by the Western press as a failure--but hailed as a success by North Korea.
Independently of the Congressional EMP Commission, South Korean military intelligence several times warned their government, in stories reported in South Korean press, that Russians are in North Korea helping them develop a Super-EMP nuclear warhead. In response, the South Korean government launched projects to harden their military communications and other critical infrastructures.
In 2010, according to some reputable European analysts, radioisotope data indicates North Korea may have conducted two clandestine nuclear tests of a very low yield "nuclear device" of sophisticated fusion design. This is indicative of a weapons program that is very technologically advanced, and consistent with development of a Super-EMP warhead.
In 2012, a military commentator for the People's Republic of China told a Hong Kong journal that North Korea has Super-EMP nuclear warheads.
This communique is meant to stoke hatred and nationalism among their poor peasants and masses. It isn’t meant for outside consumption.
It’s not the weaponary of the NorK’s that matters, they can kick up some dust, but Mainland China is pulling this guy’s strings. China who gives DPRK everything from food to fuel, has decided to test a weak and bumbling American President by proxy. And Both Un, and the new Female leader of the south need to prove something to their people.
A war in the mind of the eunuch, Kim Jong Un, and the minds of his effeminate officer staff, but he does nothing.
It’s CHINA who does not like B-2’s a hundred miles off it’s boarder!
IT’s on his Blackberry!
Get your Sansung TV before they blow Korea to bits.
(It is the best picture we’ve ever, ever seen in a television)
It’s been apped, eh? Well that’s a big relief ....
You don’t wipe out millions of innocent NK civilians because someones house got flattened.
Who’s the cop ? Obama ?
Not the statues of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il !!
I had to check the source. I thought for a minute it was CNN, ABC or MSNBC. The reporting is about as accurate and truthful.
I'm sure those thoughts filtered through the minds of the folks on the Polit Boro.
Holy. Carp. I’m not going to be sleeping well tonite, or for quite a while, now. They’re crazy enough to do it.
The EMP would damage over 75% of our electronics and severly restrict our ability to respond.
I believe your analysis is correct. China knows Obama is weak, and is testing him.
Time to load up on Apple stock?
Naw, Admiral and Philco, I'd say.
The Nork leadership is just crazy enough to set off
a nuke over one of their own cities and call it a
I hope Obama’s hair is turning grey, mine sure is.
Do you think those would go undetected?
Military electronics that are critical are hardened against such attacks. You are fear mongering and incorrect.
Ping to post #16.
:Little barry bastard boy live on magic thinking from the moment he wakes up until he passes out at night. He is too stupid to realize the actual peril because he is not nor ever will be a true leader. He is a community organizer ... read community agitator. He is educated, trained, and hell-bent to make trouble not deal with it. He is the most dangerous pResident this dying Republic has ever had, way more dangerous than the worst feckless one you can think of, even Carter.
I’ve never dismissed NK as a non threat. And EMP is just one of the reasons. We very well may have to tangle with them. Points to ponder,
1.They have a huge army.
2.They have,maybe hundreds of thousands of artillery.
3. They do have nuclear weapons,and we don’t know how much of that kind of stuff they may have gotten from the Chinese and Russia.What if they got missiles capable of reaching us from the Russians? Can we be sure they haven’t, either from Russian military brass, or the Russian gangsters?
4. And last, but certainly not the least is motivation. They have a new, young leader. He knows how dictators rise and fall, and cares nothing about anyone but himself.And this is an indication that sanctions have been working, they are creating desperation among his people. Far better to blown away by the enemy while fighting than to be hanged by your own.So, yes, they are crazy enough to do it.
Why be realistic when you can fear monger and be a drama queen?
It would still be suicide by cop. Wouldn’t take long for military command to find out what happened. They have tempest hardened communications. The Norks would be reduced to radioactive pumice in a matter of hours with no remedy or recourse.
Yes, there would be chaos here at home for many months, until the grid could be restored, etc.
But the Norks would have been completely cratered.
What would we do if NK or Iran tells us that a nuclear weapon has been smuggled into a large American city, and that we must meet their list of demands?
Imagine the public reaction if the president refused to negotiate.
Until recently, I never looked at them as other than a 3rd tier threat; that’s now changed. They just moved-up a noych or two.
I agree completely. But it would certainly serve the strategic goals of China (and some would assert Russia also) so China might be quietly goading them along even though the obvious outcome is that NORK would be gone. That too might serve China’s goals by removing a chronic thorn in their side.
What terrifies the Chinese most of all is millions of Nork refugees pouring over their border.
I think if China sensed that the Norks were about to truly go off the deep end, they would intervene and move in.
