North Korea warns nuclear war on America could break out "today or tomorrow"
Mirror Online ^ | Wednesday, April 3, 2013 | Chris Bucktin

In response President Obama ordered a ballistic missile defence system be moved to the nearest U.S. military base to the rogue state

North Korea dramatically escalated tensions with America tonight by warning it had approved nuclear strike plans.

"The moment of explosion is approaching fast," the North Korean military said, warning that war could break out "today or tomorrow".

In response, President Obama ordered a ballistic missile defence system be moved to the nearest U.S. military base to the rogue state.

The U.S. defence system will move to Guam, the nearest American military base to North Korea, 2,000 miles south east of Pyongyang in the Pacific Ocean.

U.S. defence secretary, Chuck Hagel, said: “Some of the actions they have taken the last few weeks present a real and clear danger and threat to the interests of our allies starting with South Korea and Japan.

“Also there have been threats the North Koreans have leveled at our base in Guam and Hawaii.”

if anything happens, Obama’s complete disinterest in the buildup and lack of resolve will be his undoing. The guy is lazy and unengaged. He would not say one word to back up America’s resolve to protect our bases and Real Korea.

Why would Obama nuke his comrades? He’s more likely to attack South Korea then say it was an accident.

Saber rattling for US handouts. Their crops and food supplies are really, really bad. China has stopped helping them out on critical items. They’ve had real bad harvests the last few years.

Well then may I suggest somebody send Kim a copy of Dale Carnegie's "How To Win Friends and Influence People", because this ain't working.

It's not a simple problem. The Norks have hundreds of thousands of artillery tubes - some loaded with chemical weapons - aimed and ready to fire at Seoul, which is well within their range. We attack the North and we watch tens or hundreds of thousands of South Korean civilians die gruesome deaths within minutes.

Yeah, I'd say L.A. too, but the fallout would drift across decent areas.
NYC & D.C. would just cause ash in the Atlantic.

THADD is a regional, high altitude interceptor system. It has a higher ceiling and wider coverage area than Patriot. To my knowledge, we have never used it in an active theatre since deployed because there was no threat present to use it against. It is an endoatmospheric system that cannot counter ICBM’s or newer hypersonic missiles. I guess they think Taepodongs would be coming at Guam and they would try to catch them way out and use Patriot as the last line of a layered defense. I don’t think the THAAD arc would extend from Guam to Japan.

I think we have some stuff on Aegis platforms that can catch ICBM’s in boost phase but you have to get on them quick. If they actually have something that can hold together and get to the US mainland and have a warhead that would actually work as a strategic weapon mounted on that vehicle (a big if), the GBI BMD tubes in Alaska are our only real defense IMHO.

They could potentially detonate a nuke at altitude which would result in an EMP attack. Read “One Second After” by William Forstchen for the gory details that such an attack might cause. It is definitely something everybody ought to consider and nothing is lost by reading an engaging book.

A good point.

I remember someone saying years ago that the biggest mistake Josef Stalin ever made was in assuming that in dealing with Adolf Hitler, he was dealing a rational human being.

We could debate whether Stalin was psychopathic - in my view, he was - but I would not consider Stalin “irrational”.

It’s a possibility that Kim Jong Un could be the outlier; a genuinely irrational human being who, unfortunately, is in a leadership position in a state that possess nuclear weapons.

I'm some what distressed as to the level, of dismissiveness (sp?)that some here have as to the capibilities of the Norks.

Pakistan has a missile capable nuc warhead. What make you think that that technology hasn't been passed on to the Norks via Iran?

They ,The Norks, currently have a orbiting “Package” in a polar orbit.. how do you know that it's not a Nuclear Device to be used as a EMP device. ?

If you can put a “Device” into a polar orbit,you can theoretical target any place on the globe.
Never , never , never underestimate a adversary, to do so is at your own risk

We had just such a plan in the 60’s and 70’s if the USSR invaded Western Europe and we were getting the worst of it. It works. I know someone who worked on the program. Question again is, could they get it here, detonate it at the right altitude and deliver enough of those explosions to spread it over a wide enough area? But you are right, that is more within their capability range right now.

Stalin always expected Hitler to attack...he just figured he'd be bogged down in the West, he couldn't see France falling in six weeks....He knew he couldn't have the Red Army ready until 1943, so he was just trying to stall for time.

Okay, but you have to take Ithaca and Eugene too.

Then they could have a beer summit in the hot tub.

This illustrates just one of the innumerable dangers of having a weak, Leftist “President” like Zero. Everyone on Earth knows he’s weak and will therefore continually try to ‘test’ the USA under his ineffectual ‘leadership’.

Also, Zero knows that everyone else knows that he’s weak and spineless, and so may do something rash and stupid which has implications and repercussions far beyond what he thinks he understands.

Weak, loudmouthed juveniles will quite often get into a fight at times when strong, thoughtful adults would not.
