    Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump discussed the crisis over North Korea's nuclear program in a phone call Thursday, in which the US president took the unusual step of thanking his Russian counterpart for praising America's economy. The two heads of state discussed "the situation in several crisis zones, with a focus on solving the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula," the Kremlin said in a statement, without elaborating. The White House said the two "discussed working together to resolve the very dangerous situation in North Korea."

    Tillerson told a D.C. crowd Tuesday: “We’re ready to have the first meeting without precondition." "Let's just meet," he continued. "We can talk about the weather if you want. We can talk about whether it's going to be a square table or a round table, if that's what you're excited about. But can we at least sit down and see each other face-to-face. And then we can begin to lay out a map, a roadmap, of what we might be willing to work towards."

    Ex-NATO commander: North Korea likely getting help with nukes, rockets from China or Russia Retired Adm. James Stavridis, a former NATO supreme allied commander, in an interview on Sunday said North Korea is likely receiving outside help from allies like China, Russia or Iran as it races to develop its weapons arsenal. “You’ve got to think that at least part of it is coming from either China or Russia and I have no evidence of that, but the idea that [North Korean leader Kim Jong Un] would simply be developing this on an indigenous basis within his own population of...

    National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday that the potential of war with North Korea is "increasing every day" after the nation's latest launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). "I think it's increasing every day" McMaster told Fox News host Bret Baier at the Reagan National Defense Forum, when asked if this week's missile launch heightened the possibility of war with the U.S. McMaster pointed to the latest North Korean missile launch, which flew higher than any of its previous long-range weapons, as posing an increased threat to the U.S. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been working...

    Kim Jong Un visits factory that produced tyres for missile truck North Korea's leader had tasked the factory to make the tyres for the "great event in November", says the country's state media. Kim Jong Un inspects the tyres at the factory Kim Jong Un has thanked workers at a factory that built the tyres for a huge vehicle used to transport North Korea's new intercontinental ballistic missile which was tested this week. The visit came after a public rally and fireworks in Pyongyang to celebrate the launch of the Hwasong-15 ICBM, in violation of international sanctions. At the Amnokgang...

    NORTH Korea better be watching its back today as thousands of US troops and 230 warplanes descend on Kim Jong-un’s doorstep. Vigilant Ace – a massive joint war games – kicks off today as the US and South Korea rehearse for battle with Pyongyang. Hundreds of aircraft and thousands of soldiers and airmen are taking part in the drill, which is one of the biggest ever of its kind. US and South Korean forces will be rehearsing for a full-scale war with North Korea. Nuclear fears have reignited as Kim fired his latest missile last week – his biggest and...
  • Why Rocket Man Doesn't Keep Me Awake At Night

    Kim Jong-Un fired off another rocket last night. It got close to Japan, supposedly. Friends, neighbors, and even political rivals have called me, terrified about where this military build-up is headed. Trump has mobilized a greater show of force in the Pacific rim. Hawaii is under red alert, prepared for a nuclear attack at any moment. But as for me, guess what? I don’t care. I may live on the Western rim, but I have survived along the San Andreas Fault all my life, and despite earthquakes, terrors, wars, rumors of wars (and even the LA riots), I am not...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia accused the United States on Thursday of trying to provoke North Korean leader Kim Jong Un into “flying off the handle” over his missile program to hand Washington a pretext to destroy his country. In some of his most robust comments on the subject to date, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also flatly rejected a U.S. call to cut ties with Pyongyang over its nuclear and ballistic missile program and said U.S. policy towards North Korea was deeply flawed. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have flared after North Korea said it had successfully tested a new...

    Breitbart ^ | 11-29-2017
    The Chinese state outlet, Global Times, which typically takes an aggressive tone in covering the United States, declared on Wednesday that President Donald Trump and the U.S. policy on North Korea had “failed,” citing Pyongyang’s latest missile test.(At press time, the article is not available at its original Global Times link, though it remains accessible in Google’s cache history.) North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) announced late Tuesday that dictator Kim Jong-un had personally directed the launching of a new model of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), named Hwasong-15, and that he declared the test a success. China is North...

    Fox News Insider ^ | 11-29-2017
    Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said today that the diplomatic options are running out after North Korea fired a new kind of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The rogue dictator Kim Jong Un boasted that the Hwasong-15 can be armed with a nuclear warhead and could strike the U.S. mainland. The ICBM was fired at 2:48 a.m. local time on Wednesday, the regime said, traveling 596 miles and demonstrating the potential to reach a range of 8,100 miles. Bolton said this test-launch is "significant" because, if the early estimates are confirmed, it leaves no doubt that Pyongyang is "getting very close"...

    NORTH KOREA’S SCARIEST MISSILE YET: North Korea is declaring that its latest missile test shows it has mastered the rocket science to threaten the world with a nuclear attack. The missile was fired in the middle of the night North Korean time, 1:17 p.m. Washington time, and North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency pronounced it a roaring success. “After watching the successful launch of the new type ICBM Hwasong-15, Kim Jong Un declared with pride that now we have finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force,” KCNA reported.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham asserted that President Trump won't allow the "crazy man in North Korea" to launch a nuclear weapon capable of reaching the U.S., after the pariah state, led by Kim Jong Un, conducted yet another missile test on Tuesday. The insult, seemingly directed at Kim, came as the South Carolina Republican senator warned that North Korea is putting itself in greater jeopardy with every test it runs in defiance of international pressure to get it to halt its nuclear weapons and missile programs. Pyongyang, he said during an interview on CNN, is "miscalculating" Trump, who Graham said favors...

    North Korea fires a missile that appears to have crashed into Japan's exclusive economic zone, the Japanese prime minister's office said. The South Korean military conducted a "precision missile-firing drill" as a response to the launch, a South Korean military official told NBC.

    Commercial satellite imagery of the Sinpo South Shipyard from November 5 indicates that North Korea is on an aggressive schedule to build and deploy its first operational ballistic missile submarine. The continued movement of parts and components into and out of the parts yards adjacent to the construction halls indicates an ongoing shipbuilding program. The presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine’s pressure hull in the yards suggests construction of a new submarine, possibly the SINPO-C ballistic missile submarine (SSB)[1]—the follow-on to the current SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine (SSBA).[2] A probable launch canister support, or launch...

    The Trump administration plans to announce Tuesday new sanctions on North Korea, after declaring it a state sponsor of terrorism in the latest push to isolate the pariah nation. North Korea has joined Iran, Sudan and Syria on America's terror blacklist, a largely symbolic step as the administration already has the authority to impose virtually any sanctions it wants on Kim Jong Un's government over its nuclear weapons development. As part of its "maximum pressure" campaign, President Donald Trump said the Treasury Department would impose more sanctions on North Korea and "related persons" starting Tuesday, without hinting who or what...

    North Korea is reportedly ready to conduct a strike against the United States, at least according to a newly-released report. The North Korean delegation sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin that warned about conducting a nuclear attack against the U.S. The letter reportedly contained details about North Korea allegedly preparing to strike the U.S., with the letter being received last month by Russian officials. Reports of the content of the letter were originated by Sputnik News, a Kremlin propaganda tool. The letter was received when President Putin was in Saint Petersburg during the Inter-Parliamentary Union talks. However, with news...
  • Trump Take To Social Media To Hit Back At 'Short and Fat' Kim Jong-un

    North Korea and its nuclear weapons program have plagued the U.S. for years. What to do with all of these missile tests? How do we negotiate? It’s all documented. With President Donald Trump, some people do think that his Twitter and overall personality could make a nuclear exchange more likely. So, as the president finishes the last leg of his Asia trip, he decided to take to Twitter and bash North Korean Kim Jong-un “short and fat.” This came after the Asian dictator called Trump “old.”“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old,’" tweeted the president. “When...
