North KOREA TACTICAL NOISE

Next




SPOKEN LIKE A TRUE DIPLOMATIC EXPERT

Trump added that military action remains an option. “Hopefully we do not have to use it,” he said during remarks about North Korea. “But if we do, we will use it. If we have to, we will use it.”

Kim Jong Un is back on his white horse, as North Korea flags a big decision…  Good personal relations ( Considered to be one-sided and frickin bullsh*t by T-RUMP) between the two leaders and a recent decision by the United States to postpone joint air drills with South Korea, however, have clearly not been enough for Pyongyang.

Ri Thae Song, vice foreign minister in charge of US affairs, accused Washington of trying to buy time by calling for a “sustained and substantial dialogue,” an approach he rejected.    “The dialogue touted by the US is, in essence, nothing but a foolish trick hatched to keep the DPRK bound to dialogue and use it in favor of the political situation and election in the U.S.,” he said, referring to his country by the initials of its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“The DPRK has heard more than enough dialogue rhetoric raised by the U.S. whenever it is driven into a tight corner,” Ri said. “So, no one will lend an ear to the US any longer.”

Ri then again reminded the United States of the fast-approaching deadline, effectively repeating a veiled threat to resume long-range missile tests.

“The DPRK has done its utmost with maximum perseverance not to backtrack from the important steps it has taken on its own initiative,” he said in a statement carried by the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency. “What is left to be done now is the US option, and it is entirely up to the U.S. what Christmas gift it will select to get.”  North Korea has a history of timing launches with an eye on international developments and even U.S. holidays.

Last week, North Korea chose Thanksgiving Day to launch two projectiles from what it called a “super large multiple-rocket launcher,” marking the 14th test of short-range rockets or missiles it has undertaken this year.

On July 4, 2017, North Korea conducted its first test of an ICBM, the Hwasong 14, with leader Kim Jong Un describing it as a gift package” for the Americans on their Independence Day.   North Korea has also dialed up the military threats in recent months, suggesting it may soon launch a ballistic missile in the direction of Japan.

When Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said last week’s launch was a threat to the region and the world and described the projectiles as ballistic missiles, North Korea responded by calling him the worst idiot in the world and the stupidest man in history.  “Abe may see what a real ballistic missile is in the not distant future and under his nose,” KCNA said Saturday. “Abe is none other than a perfect imbecile and a political dwarf.”


THREATS 

12/4/2019 - North Korea has sent an ominous holiday message to the US, and no one really knows what it means. In a translated statement, Ri Thae Song, a first vice minister at the North Korean Foreign Ministry working on US affairs, accused the US of leveraging its political talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for its own political gain. 

"It is entirely up to the US what Christmas gift it will select to get," the statement concluded. Is the "gift" more long-range missile tests? In July 2017, North Korea referred to its first test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile as an Independence Day “gift" to the US. 

That would definitely put a freeze on any warm feelings between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, who already seem to be wary of each other due to Trump's insistence that North Korea agree to a nuclear deal. 


11/29/2019 - There could be a big storm brewing on the Korean Peninsula as the region faces the convergence of three key controversies: 

  • US diplomacy with North Korea, the military cooperation of South Korea and Japan, and the ongoing question of who should pay for US troops to be stationed on the peninsula. Unfortunately, all three issues are trending in a negative direction. 

  • Earlier this year, North Korea said the US has until the end of the year to pitch a nuclear deal or the country will bail on recent overtures of renewed friendship.

  • Japan and South Korea, longtime allies and peacemakers in the region, are embroiled in their own political spat, complete with a burgeoning trade war. The two countries may end a military intelligence-sharing agreement that keeps North Korea in check. 

  • On top of it all, Trump recently asked that Seoul pay 400% more in 2020 for hosting US troops in the region. Oh, and North Korea just today fired a round of mysterious projectiles from a huge missile launcher. 

  • 10/31/2019 - North Korea fired two “  unidentified projectiles” today 10/31/2019 into the waters between South Korea and Japan, according to the South Korean government. It's not clear what exactly was launched, but both South Korean and Japanese officials are treating them as missiles. If they’re right, it would be the first missile test by Pyongyang in nearly a month and the 12th since May.

  • The North launched another  pair of short-range ballistic missiles off its east coast, South Korean and US officials said.  That's the second such launch in less than a week. In response, South Korea held an emergency National Security Council meeting this morning.

  • It tested a new type of submarine-launched ballistic missile at the start of this month, just days before the US and North Korea held working-level nuclear talks. Those talks didn't end in any formal agreement. The early October launch was especially concerning because it was the first missile test by North Korea in some time that didn't involve a shorter-range weapon.


  • North Korea on Monday recalled the days of “  Fire and fury” by releasing images of leader Kim Jong Un touring a suspected nuclear-capable submarine, and a close reading of the images reveal once again that a US fight with North Korea could mean death for millions in the region, and suicide for Pyongyang, the country's capital. 

  • North Korea showed Kim touring a factory building a submarine, which HI Sutton, a submarine analyst, said probably took place on the country’s east coast.   Kim hasn’t been pictured inspecting weapons capable of carrying nuclear warheads since the thaw in tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, but on Monday, it appears to have lost its patience with now stalled peace talks. 

  • The skies over the East Sea were the scene of a tense standoff this week between Japanese, South Korean, Russian and Chinese warplanes, emphasizing the uncertain nature of a region in which overlapping territorial claims and bullish militaries raise the risk of conflict, even without North Korea entering the mix.

  • "If it's very low and very fast, that shortens warning and decision time," he told CNN. "Those kinds of things could be useful in a retaliatory situation, but it's even more relevant for a first strike. That’s part of why we agreed to ban (Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces) during the Cold War.”

  • Kim Jong-Un’s recent short-range missile tests send some important signals,  They tell North Korean hardliners that Kim remains committed to national defense, even as he negotiates with Washington, and they tell the US that Kim is serious about an end-of-year deadline for the US to change its stance in nuclear talks. If Washington ignores that deadline, bigger provocations could be on the way, they write.  

  • The missiles themselves were noteworthy, and we shouldn’t discount them simply because they can’t cross the Pacific,  They can hit South Korea and Japan.  The missiles were solid-fueled, which makes them easier to move and conceal. They chiefly threaten South Korea—“handy tools to later hold South Koreans and Americans living in the South hostage”



THE QUEST OF SQUAREHEAD JONG UN 

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he was “pleased” with the outcome of his summit meeting Thursday in the Russian city of Vladivostok with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying he would discuss the results with China and the United States.
“We are all pleased with the outcome of the talks -- both I and my colleagues,” the Russian leader said. “Chairman Kim Jong Un is a fairly open person, leading a free discussion on all issues that were on the agenda.”

Asked if Kim would be willing to continue his contact with the US, Putin said the leader in Pyongyang would be guided by his “national interests,” but added that “we can’t resolve anything without talks” when it came to the crisis on the Korean peninsula. Putin, who travels next to Beijing, said he would discuss the summit with his Chinese counterparts.

“Of course, I will speak tomorrow in Beijing with the leadership of the People’s Republic of China, but we will also openly and frankly discuss today’s meeting with the American leadership,” he said.

 

LATEST THIRD POSSIBLE SUMMIT

04/14/2019 - WASHINGTON  US President Donald T-RUMP said relations with Kim Jong Un remain “ VERY GOOD ” and he opened the door Saturday for a third summit, hours after the North Korean leader said he’s willing to meet as long as the US offers acceptable terms for a deal by year end.   ( “VERY GOOD” = KISS YOUR ASS DIPLOMACY BY T-RUMP)

“I agree with Kim Jong Un of North Korea that our personal relationship remains very good, perhaps the term excellent would be even more accurate,” Trump said Saturday in a tweet. “A third Summit would be good in that we fully understand where we each stand.” 

T-RUMP said he looked forward to a day, “ Which could be soon, when Nuclear Weapons and Sanctions can be removed", And then watching North Korea become one of the most successful nations of the World”  (BS) with lots of  golf courses and hotels. 

In remarks carried earlier Saturday by the official Korean Central News Agency, Kim said he wouldn’t welcome a repeat of the Hanoi summit in February, when Trump walked out without securing a nuclear disarmament deal. While Kim hailed his relationship with Trump, he also said the U.S. has been making unilateral demands and should abandon that approach.

“In any case we will wait with patience for the US courageous decision by the end of this year but it will clearly be tough to get such a good opportunity like the last time,” Kim said in a speech at North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature, according to the KCNA report.

Kim’s remarks suggest an attempt to breathe new life into the stalled negotiations. While Trump said on Thursday that the door for dialog remains open and a summit “could happen,” he also rejected calls to revive economic projects between North and South Korea. In a leadership shuffle announced Friday, Kim consolidated his power and granted new legitimacy to officials involved in the talks.

“They want to see the U.S. make the next move — that the steps that they took, such as returning war remains and shutting down missile sites, are even more grounds to demand the US to relieve sanctions,” said Kim Hyun-wook, a professor at the Korean National Diplomatic Academy. “However, the US has taken a more hard-line stance since the Hanoi summit.”

ED:  When I see it actually take place I will believe it, otherwise very cautious about anything from Hanoi and Washington, both have little truth in most statements.


BOLTON BOONDOGGLE and FIRING 

03/20/2019 WASHINGTON  -  Sec. John Bolton said the 2nd summit was not a failure!  He was right... it was another colossal monumental classic T-RUMP unplanned, off the wall, love fest that festered and died.  We call  it a “ festerfeuck”. 
( New word in the dictionary)

T-RUMP likes KIM more than John Bolton so he fired Bolton who possibly was too outspoken on N. Korea.  Bolton was also sure Kim will never get rid of his nukes, the world agrees.  So once again Donald is blowing smoke, farts, bullsh*t and enough verbal fertilizer to cover the entire peninsula and solve their food crisis.

The officials told reporters that President T-RUMP remains “personally engaged”. Officials said the US is working to tighten pressure on North Korea to “ unprecedented” levels by better enforcing sanctions and other economic measures against the North.  “ This is a new approach,” one senior official said. “ You’ve had piecemeal sanctions over the years.”  Now we can secure a total failure.

What a big double bill it was -- President Donald T-RUMP taking the world stage for a SECOND nuclear summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea who appears to be the chef in these maneuvers. Meanwhile Kim Jung Un was contemplating Vietnamese 👍🏼Duck Sauce or Chinese Mustard with the leftovers.  I like both combined when the food is fresh and not from a buffet.

Kim Jung Un clearly made the president the biggest jackass the world has seen in a long time.  He has outsmarted the golden fake hair wonder making him travel around the world twice responding to love letters that are as full of sh*t as the two of them and in true T-RUMP fashion, he lied again about Otto Warmbier.


T-RUMP LIES AGAIN ABOUT OTTO WARMBIER
When asked about the treatment of Otto Warmbier, an American student who spent 17 months in North Korean detention before being returned to the US in a vegetative state and subsequently dying, T-RUMP denied Kim had been aware of the incident.  "He felt badly about it.  He felt very badly,” Trump added. “I don’t believe that he (Kim) would have allowed that to happen.   

I have one word for T-RUMP, you are a frickin idiot,  a lying bastard, and a coward to believe Kim Jong Un,  and stand up for him… you are a traitor… you are unfit to be the president of the United States of America for supporting an individual who has the blood of 50,000 people on his hands.

Washington (CNN)  Joseph Yun, the former State Department Special Representative for North Korea, confirmed Monday that he signed an agreement to pay North Korea $2 million for the release of American student Otto Warmbier in 2017.  In an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto, Yun said that he did so with the approval of then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and that it was his understanding President Donald Trump had also signed off on the decision. 

"As soon as North Korea side told me that this bill for $2 million would have to be paid ... I contacted my boss then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson,” Yun said, noting that Tillerson “ Got back to me very quickly thereafter to say yes, go ahead and sign.”  It had to of been OK’ed by T-RUMP, no one else could authorize it.

North Korea presented US with $2 million bill for care of Otto Warmbier, but T-RUMP says US didn’t pay.   The former US Special Representative added that it was his understanding the not to pay decision had been approved by T-RUMP himself. 

"That was my understanding. I never asked him, but that was my understanding,” he said when asked if he believed Tillerson had Trump's approval.  The Trump administration has said no money has been paid for release of Warmbier, who was in a comatose state at the time of his release from North Korean custody and died a few days after returning to the United States.

Yun said he does not know if the T-RUMP administration plans to pay, but believes the US should meet their end of the pledge and pay the North Koreans.   Really?   Dear Mr. Yun: Go F*ck Yourself - Kindly Resign, quit or commit Seppuku ( Hari Kari)


THE LATEST FAILURE HANOII
WE NEEDED MOE, LARRY, AND CURLY INSTEAD OF  BOLTON, T-RUMP AND POMPEO  

A classic T-RUMP clusterf*ck of immense proportion and alarming...and STUPIDITY.  He acted like a real FAKE president. 

KIM meanwhile gets world recognition, getting the president of the United States to travel and grovel 20 hours off Air Force one for a fake photo-op and Kim wins, getting a chance at two days in Vietnam to win friends and trading partners.  And T-RUMP was weak, stupid and placated enough to this murdering little man.

They (N. Koreans) have built more powerful weapons, better secure locations, better ties with China, the South, and other parts on the peninsulas in the South East Asia regional area as a nuclear power.  

And their cyber hackers cracked the sh*t out of major companies in the US while Donald the Patsy was kissing the little bastards fat ass.  Why is Kim laughing, he just stuck Donald with the lunch bill and why is Donald is frothing at the mouth, he’s thinking he looks like a negotiator.  Actually real talks took place...keep reading...


THE TRUTH IS REAL WITH CHINA

TOP SECRET MEETINGS - CHINA HAS THEIR OWN SLANT ON THINGS - 
1️⃣  Kim–Xi meetings is a series of summits between North Korea and China during the year 2018.  North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-Un secretly met with Chinese paramount leader Xi Jinping on March 25–28, 2018.

2️⃣   Xi made a classified invitation to Kim to visit China, after which Kim visited Beijing used his bullet proof train to travel to the three-day meeting in DalianLiaoning, China.  

3️⃣   Kim and Xi had a third surprise meeting on June 19–20, 2018.  This is the second time China’s paramount leader Xi Jinping has met Kim Jong-un in two months, and Xi Jinping reaffirmed his state visit to Pyongyang by the end of 2018. 


THE North KOREAN PHOTO-OP PROBLEM
BOTTOM LINE NOT SUCCESSFUL SO FAR - The First Summit North Korean agreement in kind is printable, available on the web and down loadable to Desktops, iPads, Smart Phones, Androids and also for those illiterates still using fax and carrier pigeons.  TRUMP is making claims about how great it went and how much he achieved. We are still looking for that to happen, more fake news is expected since no one knows what they talked about.  Experts mostly bullshit...

In an exclusive offer, the agreement is pre-printed on 200 sheet high-quality toilet paper (expect small print) so you can serve it as double duty (doody)   First, after you read it, wipe the tears of laughter with it.  Then wipe your butt.  Not the other way around!  This should wipe out any and I mean any misconceptions of not putting Donald’s work to good use.  

Donald J Trump and Kim Jung Un  
25,000 Miles, a million dollars each trip wasted and the idiot forgot to get the order signed… when we learned he really did not write his so-called book, “ The Art of the Deal”  we then understood what a liar he really is, a fake, a fraud, a bullshitter, thats who he really is

We think Kim’s hand hold is saying you may kiss my ring, after all you have been kissing my ass the whole day…

Summit is a cool term for really bigly photo-op,  it was a chance for the (tough) deal-making blowhard Trump to show his macho,  in a world stage and a bigger gain for the mini-killer Kim Jung Un who makes the Nazi Doctor Mengele look like Mother Teresa’s helper.   

T-RUMP acted very fatherly in his body language guiding and teaching Kim Jung Un the fine art of posing and facial expression for the TV cameras and how to stand, look important, perfectly quaffed and polished, positive and confident.   About as phony as two ass-clowns can be.   

Truly his best “puker” to date.  Sincere ? Who is kidding who?  Who wrote that line into the agreement.   Must have been the head liar, Steven Miller.  

Donald did KIM a favor, he brought him out to the world stage.  Kim knows he has Donald by the short hairs or in Donald’s case the swept hairs.

The training events we have for security are cancelled to “ save money”.  Thats bullshit, Donald’s trips could pay for the next four years.  But he has weakened training in an era,  in that area where China is building offshore bases on islands.  Kim has already won.  We sent a lightweight to a welterweight fight.

WARNING: With U.S.-China trade ties on the rocks, Kim is well-positioned to play both powers, talking sweet to Trump while pursuing a closer relationship with Xi.   YOU THINK?  

It was the plan from the beginning.  The little Rocket Man schmoo-ed him without saying a word.  Donald the great deal maker, well as my poker player friend would say, he done got played...bad. 

Bluffing might work in poker, but bullshit rarely works in politics, and you’ll lose when the cards are exposed.  Kim Jong Un’s wife Ri Sol-Ju, is on the left.

Ri Sol-Ju was only last year "outed" as the supreme leader's wife, having previously stood, unidentified, in photos with him.  
She's around 30 and comes from a well-to-do North Korean family.  
She is very pretty, with great taste in her apparel.   Xi’s wife is very attractive too and both women pose a lot better than their husbands. The rumor mill has been churning out stories that she may have shot a homemade porn film, and that she once led a promiscuous lifestyle.

Kim Jong (Jung) Un ( there are about five different ways his name is spelled when translated ) took over the role of Supreme Leader when the country was already in trouble, with skyrocketing poverty and starvation rates. Still, the supreme leader himself lives a "seven-star party lifestyle."
