    NK state media's broadside won’t impact China policy The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published a commentary on Friday criticizing China, although without naming it, for "dancing to the tune of" the US' North Korean policy. Some emotional statements in the article expressed Pyongyang's determination to go down the nuclear path. The most provocative sentence that attracted worldwide attention in the commentary is that "if the country keeps applying economic sanctions on the DPRK … it should get itself ready to face the catastrophic consequences in the relations with the DPRK." This is the second time North Korean state media...

    Realistic solution needed for NK nuke issue Source:Global Times Published: 2017/4/22 11:07:15 Tensions continue to rise in the Korean Peninsula, despite North Korea's latest missile launch failure, and aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson expected arrival in Korean waters 10 days later than originally planned. Furthermore, Pyongyang will likely conduct its sixth nuclear test and also launch an intercontinental ballistic missile. When taking those into account, any type of emergency situation could arise in the Korean Peninsula at any given time. On Friday, US President Donald Trump, in using what is obviously his preferred sounding board to the public, tweeted, "China...

    Trailer movement seen at N.

Commercial satellite imagery taken on April 19 showed signs of a few mining carts along the tracks leading to the spoil pile and a small equipment trailer near the North Portal, the tunnel that Pyongyang has apparently been preparing for a nuclear test in the Punggye-ri region, according to the 38 North website.

    NKorea warns China of sanction consequences Published: 6:36 pm, Saturday, 22 April 2017 North Korea has seemingly made a thinly veiled warning to China of catastrophic consequences to their bilateral relations, as it asked its historic ally not to step up sanctions. The warning on Saturday came in a commentary titled "Are you good at dancing to the tune of others", released by the state-owned KCNA news agency. While the commentary did not mention China by name, Pyongyang expressed its criticism of "a country around the DPRK", using the acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of...

    When Nobody Knows(The New Multipolar Proliferated World, Where Nobody Knows the Rules) After a slow start, North Korean nuclear weapons engineers seem to making definite progress. The intervals between successive nuclear tests are getting shorter while the yields obtained are becoming more consistent. Incremental improvements are also being achieved in their missile systems. /snp North Korea represents a crisis in strategy. We desire the ends but are ignorant of the means. The intellectual tools of the old bipolar world are no longer a sure guide to attaining stability. Nuclear proliferation has undermined great powers, even America's rivals, because it has...

    'The sword stands ready': Pence warns North Korea Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the U.S. military, promising it would make an "overwhelming and effective" response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons. Pence, who was aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, said that President Trump's administration would continue to "work diligently" with allies like Japan, China and other global powers to apply economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. But he told the sailors, "as all of you know, readiness is the key." "The United States of America will always seek...

    Is North Korea Working Toward a 'Carrier-Killer' Anti-Ship Ballistic Missile? Say hello to the KN-17. By Ankit Panda April 18, 2017 When I discussed North Korea’s latest show-stopper of a military parade over the weekend, I didn’t have too much to say about one of the new missiles that Pyongyang decided to show off. The missile in question appeared to be a Scud/Nodong variant and — like the Pukkuksong-2 that we saw tested for the first time in February — was on a tracked transporter erector launcher (TEL). Notably, the missile had fins on its nose cone, suggesting that it...

It featured a senior official, Choe Ryong Hae, warning of “all-out war” if North Korea is attacked.

    China's Korea policy 'in tatters,' as both North and South defy sanctions More than half a century ago, hundreds of thousands of Chinese soldiers died in the Korean War, fighting on the side of their Communist allies against the American-backed South. Yet today, China finds itself in the uncomfortable position of falling out with both the Communist North and capitalist South of this troublesome peninsula, imposing sanctions on both countries but getting no satisfaction from either. Yesterday, South Korea announced it would press ahead with the "swift deployment" of an American missile defense system despite relentless and vociferous Chinese opposition....
