  • Russia accused of 'cover-up', dramatic spike in radiation - but refuse to investigate source

    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 · 75 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...

    I was thinking with all the craziness surrounding North Korea and the possibility of Nuclear War on the Korean Peninsula are there any Korean Freepers out there than know if are any good organizations that are working ahead of time to setup possible shelters and housing for South Koreans that may have to evacuate the country should the proverbial fat boys hit the fan. I know some of the local Korean Christian Churches in the area where I live have been making some plans and some have always had plans should the Korean War go hot again ( the war...

    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...

    Kim Jong Un’s officials plucked teenage girls from North Korean schools to serve as the leader’s sex slaves, indulged in a gluttonous lifestyle while his people starved and ordered public executions that turned into horrific shows of violence, a North Korean defector revealed. Hee Yeon, who fled Pyongyang in 2015 and now lives in Seoul, told The Mirror about the years she spent living in constant fear of Kim Jong Un since the ruthless dictator took control of North Korea in 2011. “Despite our privilege we were scared. I saw terrible things in Pyongyang,” Hee Yeon said. In what heinous...

    Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday the Iranian people are waiting for an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his “extremely offensive” rhetoric and “unfounded” allegations about his country. Rouhani told a news conference that the Trump administration is seeking “an excuse” to pull out of the nuclear agreement that caps Iran’s nuclear activities which is supported by his government and the five other parties — Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. If the U.S. decides to break the agreement, Rouhani said, “any choice and any option” are open for Iran “that we see as beneficial to our country”...

    The presidents of China and Russia agreed late on Sunday to “appropriately deal with” North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test, Xinhua reported, with Beijing strongly condemning Pyongyang’s action. The agreement came as Chinese President Xi Jinping met his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Sunday night in Xiamen, Fujian province, ahead of Monday’s BRICS leaders summit. “The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and keep close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation,” Xinhua said in a brief report. US President Donald Trump responded to the test on Twitter,...

    The single mountain under which North Korea most likely conducted its five most recent nuclear bomb tests, including the latest and most powerful on Sunday, could be at risk of collapsing, a Chinese scientist said. By measuring and analysing the shock waves caused by the blasts, and picked up by quake stations in China and neighbouring countries, researchers at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, Anhui province, said they were confident that they were all carried out from under the same mountain at the Punggye-ri test site. The team from the seismic and deep earth physics...

    The mountain where North Korea likely conducted its five most recent nuclear bomb tests could be at risk of collapse, potentially releasing radiation into the atmosphere, according to Chinese experts who measured shock waves caused by the blasts. Scientists from the seismic and deep earth physics laboratory at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, Anhu province, believe the most recent tests were carried out under a mountain at North Korea's Punggye-ri test site, according to a statement published on their website. The group's leader, geophysicist Wen Lianxing, believes the margin of error for their prediction to...
