North Korea tells Brit diplomats to get out then sets chilling April 10 deadline
The Sun ^ | 4/5/13 | Jack Losh

Crackpot Kim Jong-un’s regime today issued a chilling threat to British diplomats warning them to get out of Pyongyang. Alarmingly the North Korean government said it would not be able to guarantee the safety of embassies from April 10. Russian diplomats have also been advised to evacuate. Today the Foreign Office added that it is “considering next steps” after the threat. It is still unclear why next Wednesday has been set as a deadline – but it is sure to spark fears despot Kim Jong-un will launch an attack after that date.

April 15 = GrandCrazy’s b-day. So they shoot off some missiles over the ocean:

SO WHAT...?

They scream like this ALL the time, therefore now they add the spooooooky Embassy warnings.

SO WHAT...? They’re just doing what they really do see as, “Their Job”.

Why does anyone really care about this?

April 25th is the day that marks the anniversary of the founding of the Kim Il-Sung's anti-Japanese people's army in 1932. The date was changed from February 8th in the 70s, but it is the national holiday known as Military Foundation Day (Note the image behind the announcer [Ri Chun-hee?] during one of the government's announcements).

The date is significant. Stay tuned.

I’m not finding a definitive answer on this.

Does Obama’s Nuclear policy allow for retaliatory nuclear strikes, if North Korea launches a nuclear weapon?

Nuclear weapons

MacArthur did not advocate the use of nuclear weapons to recover the situation.[81][82] In his testimony before the Senate Inquiry, he said that he had never recommended their use.[83] In 1960, MacArthur challenged a statement by Truman that he had wanted to use nuclear weapons, and Truman issued a retraction, stating that he had no documentary evidence of this claim; it was merely his personal opinion. According to Major General Courtney Whitney, MacArthur did at one point consider a plan to use radioactive wastes to seal off North Korea, based upon a 1950 proposal by Louis Johnson, but never submitted this to the Joint Chiefs.[81] In 1985 Richard Nixon recalled discussing the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with MacArthur:

MacArthur once spoke to me very eloquently about it, pacing the floor of his apartment in the Waldorf. He thought it a tragedy the bomb was ever exploded. MacArthur believed that the same restrictions ought to apply to atomic weapons as to conventional weapons, that the military objective should always be limited damage to noncombatants... MacArthur, you see, was a soldier. He believed in using force only against military targets, and that is why the nuclear thing turned him off, which I think speaks well of him.[84]

Bradley had proposed to the Joint Chiefs that nuclear weapons be placed at MacArthur’s disposal in July 1950, but after consideration of the matter, the Joint Chiefs did not adopt the proposal.[85] However, ten B-29 bombers were deployed to Guam. While Truman publicly denied that he was considering the use of nuclear weapons, he authorised the transfer to Guam of all their components except for the fissile cores.[86]

At a press conference on 30 November 1950, Truman was asked about the use of nuclear weapons:

Q. Mr. President, I wonder if we could retrace that reference to the atom bomb? Did we understand you clearly that the use of the atomic bomb is under active consideration?
Truman: Always has been. It is one of our weapons.
Q. Does that mean, Mr. President, use against military objectives, or civilian—
Truman: It’s a matter that the military people will have to decide. I’m not a military authority that passes on those things.
Q. Mr. President, perhaps it would be better if we are allowed to quote your remarks on that directly?
Truman: I don’t think—I don’t think that is necessary.
Q. Mr. President, you said this depends on United Nations action. Does that mean that we wouldn’t use the atomic bomb except on a United Nations authorization?
Truman: No, it doesn’t mean that at all. The action against Communist China depends on the action of the United Nations. The military commander in the field will have charge of the use of the weapons, as he always has.[87]

The implication was that the authority to use nuclear weapons had been handed over to MacArthur.[88] Truman was forced to issue a clarification that “only the President can authorize the use of the atom bomb, and no such authorization has been given.”[87] Truman had touched upon one of the most sensitive issues in civil-military relations in the post-World War II period: civilian control of nuclear weapons, which was enshrined in the Atomic Energy Act of 1946.[89]

On 5 April 1951, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drafted orders for MacArthur authorizing attacks on Manchuria and the Shantung Peninsula if the Chinese launched airstrikes against his forces originating from there.[90] The next day Truman met with the chairman of the United States Atomic Energy Commission, Gordon Dean,[89] and arranged for the transfer of nine Mark 4 nuclear bombs to military control.[91] Dean was apprehensive about delegating the decision on how they should be used to MacArthur, who lacked expert technical knowledge of the weapons and their effects.[92] The Joint Chiefs were not entirely comfortable about giving them to MacArthur either, for fear that he might prematurely carry out his orders.[90] Instead, they decided that the nuclear strike force would report to the Strategic Air Command.[93]

I wouldn’t be a bit surprise if Obama wants NK to launch an attack on the States so he can suspend the constitution and implement martial law.

I noticed in another report that the Polish Embassy was told the same thing and the Polish government dismissed it as mere posturing by the NK regime.

LOL! Outstanding, Joe. If I had the power to give you a show on a major network, you would occupy primetime on Sunday night.
