  • Would it be a good idea to withdraw nukes from Europe? (Vanity)

    Given that Europe gets ever closer to Islamic takeover, is it wise for the United States to have nuclear weapons in Europe? I would never want to see our own nukes pointed back st us. It also seems to me that the more Western Europe becomes Islamicized, the less desirable a target it becomes. The socialists are ruining Europe after all.

    Trump on Twitter North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

    Let us be clear on what the “insurance policy” was. The insurance policy was, in totality, the entire fraudulent Russian Conspiracy Narrative; and all of the accompanying –and subsequent– FBI and DOJ collaborative actions that were taken, under the auspices of an FBI counterintelligence operation, in order to generate an entirely false premise. The goal of using the “insurance policy” was to destroy, and possibly impeach, President Trump.

    Have you noticed a recurring answer coming out in interviews with politicians and Trump administration members lately when the subject of North Korea comes up? Over and over the answer to the seriousness of threats from North Korea is, “We’re running out of time.” I’ve heard that answer several times just this weekend.Unless you’ve been in a medically induced coma the past year or so, it is clear that the crazy-like-a-fox brutal dictator, Kim Jong-un, in North Korea has a nuclear war with America on his to-do list. After a brief hiatus, another advanced ballistic missile test was launched...

  • Experts say eliminate ICBMs since they are part of U.S. arsenal most likely to cause accidental war

    Of all weapons in the U.S. nuclear arsenal, the ICBM is the one most likely to cause accidental nuclear war, arms-control specialists say. It is for this reason that a growing number of former defense officials, scholars of military strategy and some members of Congress have begun calling for the elimination of ICBMs.

    Russia has finally confirmed that it measured increased levels of radioactive activity in the Urals, some weeks after French officials said it may have been due to an "accident" at a Russian or Kazakh nuclear facility. The state had, in fact, measured increased levels of the Ruthenium-106 isotope in the Southern Urals. But there was nothing to be worried about, said the head of the Russian Metereological Service, Maxim Yakovenko. Yes, the levels might have been several hundred times background levels, but they were still safe for the general public. In any case, in Romania, the figures were at least...
  • What General Hyten really said (re: refusing Trump nuke order)

    11/20/2017 8:13:14 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 86 replies
    Considerable uproar was generated this past weekend by legacy media reports that the commander of U.S. strategic forces would "resist 'illegal' nuke order from Trump," as CBS, in a headline echoed by most media sources, put it. In fact, nothing of the sort occurred. The story, like many that have appeared since November 8, 2016, is an almost complete fabrication, intended to embarrass President Trump and cause turmoil within the federal government and among Trump's own supporters. What actually happened is this: USAF general John E. Hyten, the chief of Strategic Command (StratCom), which is the trans-service military command that...

    Congressional lawmakers raised concerns about President Donald Trump's ability to use nuclear weapons during a hearing Capitol Hill Tuesday amid bipartisan anxiety over launch process procedures and indications that the administration has considered the option of a first strike on North Korea. Members of the Senate foreign affairs committee called into question a decades-old presidential authority to deploy nuclear weapons in what was the first congressional hearing on nuclear authorization in decades. "We are concerned that the President of the United States is so unstable, is so volatile, has a decision-making process that is so quixotic that he might order...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — In a striking shift of tone, President Donald Trump abandoned his aggressive rhetoric toward North Korea on Tuesday, signaling a willingness to negotiate as he urged Pyongyang to “come to the table” and “make a deal.” Trump, in his first day on the Korean peninsula, again pushed Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear weapons program, but sounded an optimistic note, saying confidently, if vaguely, “ultimately, it’ll all work out.” And while he said the United States would use military force if needed, he expressed his strongest inclination yet to deal with rising tensions with Pyongyang through...

    President Donald Trump has an action-packed trip to Asia slated to begin Sunday, starting in Japan before heading to South Korea and China, then Vietnam and the Philippines. Ahead of this international tour, two U.S. strategic B-1B bombers conducted drills over South Korea. North Korea was quick to condemn that action. News of the drills was first reported by North Korean state news agency KCNA on Friday, which said the exercises involving South Korean and Japanese fighter jets were a “surprise nuclear strike drill”. “The reality clearly shows that the gangster-like U.S. imperialists are the very one who is aggravating...

    The awful possibility that Israel could end-up on the receiving end of nuclear bombs manufactured from American ore starts with the obvious sympathies Barack Obama has had for Iran. A simple review of the Iranians he surrounded himself with (think Valerie Jarrett), and the numerous meetings at the White House with members of the Muslim Brotherhood and you get the picture. Add Hillary's right hand aide, Huma Abidin, whose family was intimately involved with the Brotherhood, and you see even more proof. Although I suspect Clinton was always more for the money than any religious bent. Obama hated Israel. From...

    My first thought when I watched this was “Buy gold.” My second thought was “Nah, he’s always saying goofy tough-guy stuff that doesn’t really mean anything.” Then I remembered that he basically threatened to nuke North Korea on Twitter five days ago.Now where am I going to put all this gold?This is most likely a comment about Iran and the looming decertification of the nuclear deal. There will be a political “storm” over that, of course, but read the fine print on what Trump has planned. He’s not tearing the deal up, exactly. He’s preparing to declare that it’s...

    SCIENTISTS fear a volcano on China's border with North Korea could erupt at any moment after being triggered into life by Kim Jong-un’s nuclear missile tests. Mount Paektu is responsible for one of the most powerful eruptions in human history - and now scientists fear it could blow once more. Officials in China have now closed the popular national park next to the volcano to keep the public safe, reports the Express. Nuclear tests from North Korea have triggered tremors in the 70-square-mile Changbaishan National Nature Reserve which neighbours the volcano. The Chinese authorities said: “For the safety and convenience...

    Han Tae-song, Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, took advantage of a hearing by a U.N. committee on children to whine about how sanctions "seriously threaten" the health and well-being of North Korea's children. What's ironic about the ambassador's warning is that the hearing he was testifying at was held to look into independent allegations of forced child labor, sexual abuse, and trafficking in North Korea. Reuters: Han said North Korea, whose population is 26 million, is a "people-centered socialist country... where protection and promotion of the rights and welfare of the child are given top priority ......

    THE US has military plans in place to combat North Korea, US Defence Secretary James 'Jim' Mattis has revealed amid escalating tensions over Kim Jong-un’s nuclear and missile advancements. It comes as North Korea test launched another missile over Japan on Friday following an earlier hydrogen bomb test which sparked a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Mr Mattis said he and his South Korean counterpart had discussed the idea of introducing nuclear weapons to the Korean peninsula but would disclose any further details about the military plans. He added: “Yes there are. But I will not go into details.” Mr Mattis also...
