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.
The above post is an excerpt.
Now go away, or I will taunt you a second time!
Nuke those commie bastards till they glow!
They are just asking... BEGGING... to be attacked.
Oh noes, the island could tip over.
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.
Nuclear war eh? You know,,, if they would only promise to hit DC and Maybe NYC,, i say we just ride it out.
Why would Obama nuke his comrades? He’s more likely to attack South Korea then say it was an accident.
If he had any balls, pResident Obummer would now send in the drones to take out this NK idiot.
But liberals say, “war is never the answer”!
Exactly why is it they want to attack the US again??
Do you think Santorum would have bombed the h*ll out of North Korea by now? Or at least made some sort of meaningful impact?
that was nice they gave us a heads-up.
waiting for the super-duper fantastic mega-kim-jon-un rocket of doom and annihilation.
we havea better chance of Obama nuking us than NKorea.
I wonder if Chuck Hagel turned off Matlock to issue that statement.
Kim: “Where’s the Ka-Boom, there was supposed to be an Earth-shattering Ka-Boom.”
Maybe they’re thinking of pulling a “Grand Duchy of Fenwick” scenario.
PYONGYANG, North Korea NKorean army spokesman: Military cleared to wage nuclear strikes to protect against US.
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.
Im sure we did something wrong. Obama will explain to us how it’s our fault and offer them a few billion soon. (sequestration won’t affect that)
> advice to the kenyan usurper: Go Pre-Emptive!
He won’t because he has to justify his precious Nobel Peace Prize, see.
I’m thinking that Dennis Rodman carried a message from our leader when he visited NK. The blustering and threats sure picked up since then.
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.
Keep poking the hornet’s nest and you will eventually get stung.
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.
I think Kim came away with the impression that all Americans are blithering idiots, like Dennis, and they should be easy to defeat.
well it has worked in the past. That’s why they keep doing it. I doubt Obama will stop the cycle of enabling them.
Too close to the FR servers.
I shivvering here! the Sky is falling!
Let one of their failed missiles hit China ! Will be so much fun watching!
Cal Lookout out incoming! but Who the hell cares!
Grab your gay lover and hunker down!
I doubt our fearless leader would counterattack a communist country.
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.
Has Obama destroyed our nukes yet?
Hey I thought when 0bama was elected President the whole world would be at peace, full of hope and change?
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.
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.
We don’t want the war thing, man! Rodman said something like that, didn’t he?;)
Maybe Zero could negotiate with Ronery Jr
... um... Austin?
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.
is that like rioting for EBT cards?

Maybe Rodman delivered a teleprompter that receives texts from Obama’s Blackberry.
