#war #solution #USA #NorthKorea #Trump #Kim #world #nuclear

The world leaders need to understand this, war isn't the solution. The verbal dialogues/tweets between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim are only escalating the tension between the two countries. You need to think about the people of your country, how much can a war change everyone!
Also, most of the countries in the world have tensions along their border but no one dares to start any conflicts. If any one country goes to war, no one knows what will be the consequences. After all, you need only one candle to light many firecrackers.

Hence, I am sure that if you are a leader, you will have enough intelligence and understanding on how to be better at communication & negotiations. Please use that knowledge.

North Korea fires missile again

#NorthKorea #incident #US #China #Japan #missile #nuclear

North Korea’s third ballistic missile test and 12th missile test this year were carried out on Monday into Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), an area of water extending out to 200 nautical miles from the coast of the country.

Even after US show of military force (sending US Navy ships to the Korean peninsula), and much condemning by the international community, North Korea launched a short-range Scud, that flew about 450 kms before landing in the Sea of Japan.

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe swiftly condemned the test and vowed concerted action along with its US ally.

Only China and US have mentioned that they are willing to enter into diplomatic talks with North Korea, only after it halts its missile and nuclear tests.

So another missile launched by the Kim Jong Un regime, and yet another discussion panel to be set up by the international community. I wonder how long will this keep on.

North Korea to mass-produce missiles

#NorthKorea #missile #KimJongUn #solidFuelMissiles #Pukguksong2 #Japan #UN

After a successful missile launch test, North Korea confirmed its combat readiness. The missile is believed to be able to reach Japan and Hawaii. The missile, Pukguksong-2, which is solid fueled, flew about 500 kilometers and reached a height of 560 kilometers on Sunday.

Kim Jong Un, North Korean Leader, said that the missile should “be rapidly mass-produced.” North Korean’s often stated goal is to perfect a nuclear warhead that it can put on a missile capable of hitting Washington or other U.S. cities.

A UN Security council consultation is being held on Tuesday at the request of US, Japan and South Korea.

David Wright, an expert on missiles and nuclear program said that the missile could have been flown farther but was fired on a ‘lofty’ trajectory.

So it seems North Korea was finally able to develop something in all the years when other nations were trying to talk it out of this.

North Korea fails test, again

#NorthKorea #US #nuclear #missile #UN #incident #KN-17

A North Korean mid-range ballistic missile apparently failed shortly after launch Saturday, South Korea and the United States said, the third test-fire flop just this month but a clear message of defiance as a US supercarrier conducts drills in nearby waters.

North Korean missile tests are banned by the UN fearing that the country might become adept in manufacturing and launching nuclear missiles which can strike the US mainland.  President Trump tweeted that North Korea disrespected the wishes of China and launched a missile today. Bad.

According to the South Korea’s Joint Chief of Staff, the missile flew for around two minutes, reaching a height of 71 km and then it failed. The missile was likely a medium ranged KN-17 ballistic missile, which broke up and the pieces fell into the Sea of Japan. The missile might have traveled about 50 km before it’s failure.

Oh North. It’s admirable how North Korea keeps trying even though most of the launches fail. Failures are the stepping stone towards success.

US tests unarmed ballistic missile

#US #NorthKorea #missile #testlaunch #international #Minuteman3

An unarmed Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California at 12:03 am. The test launch delivered a single re-entry vehicle to a target approximately 6,579 kms in the Pacific Ocean. Such tests are conducted regularly but the timing of the launch this time, while US has been warning North Korea for it’s test launches, has been criticized strongly.

What is needed is diplomacy rather than military provocations. Threats, whether in the form of tweets, nuclear-capable missile launches, only increase the dangers.

The previous test-launch for Minutemman 3 missile was in early February.

US at it’s best. Coming in with the show of power.

#NorthKorea #US #Japan #detain #aircraftcarrier #USSCarlVinson #KimJongUn #international

North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party commented that their forces are combat-ready to sink a US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike. It said that that such a strike will be an actual example to show its military’s force. The commentary was carried on page three of the newspaper, after a two-page feature about leader Kim Jong Un inspecting pig farm.

North Korea also detained a man named Tony Kim, a US citizen who has been in North Korea for a month teaching accounting at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology according to the institution’s chancellor Chan-Mo Park. Tony was arrested at Pyongyang International Airport on his way out of the country.

North Korea will mark the 85th anniversary of the foundation of its Korean People’s Army on Tuesday, and might test some of its weapons as has been the tradition.

Currently, USS Carl Vinson along with Japanese warships Samidare and Ashigara are spread in the waters around the Korean Peninsula to strike the North if it test any nuclear missiles.

North Korea needs to ‘behave’

#NorthKorea #US #MikePence #Trump #President #military #war #nuclear

Mike Pence, the Vice-President, told the media in the South Korean capital that they hope to achieve the denuclearisation of North Korea through peaceful means but all options were on the table indicating that President Trump is resolved to go military, if needed, as he showed during the Syrian airbase attack a week ago.

Trump commented “Gotta behave.”, when asked about what message he would like to give to the North Korean leader.

However, North Korea’s envoy to the UN, Kim In Ryong, said that the regime was preparing for any mode of war triggered by potential US military action, and said his country would respond to a missile or nuclear strike in kind.

I wonder where will things go from here. And I wonder North Korea is willing to test yet another missile in it’s arsenal.

China warns as North prepares for celebration

#China #US #NorthKorea #nuclear #celebration #USSCarlVinson #international

An influential Chinese newspaper urged North Koreans to halt its nuclear programmer in exchange for Chinese protection. Concerns have been growing that North Korea could soon conduct a sixth nuclear test or more missile launches in defiance of UN sanctions and star warning from the United States that a policy of patience was over.

Trump told the Chinese President that US is prepared to tackle the North Korean crisis without China, if needed. US has also diverted the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier towards the Korean peninsula to try to deter North Korea from conducting another nuclear test.

North Korea will be celebrating the 105th anniversary of the birth of state founder Kim II Sung on Saturday.

US expects next NK missile launch soon

#NorthKorea #US #military #international #missile #space #defence

The US military, who has increased surveillance over North Korea, has seen movement around the missile launcher and also the construction of VIP seating in the eastern coastal city Wonsan. The surveillance technique uses data from satellites, drones and other aircraft.

North Korea has been banned by the UN from conducting missile tests, however it says that it is in the final stages of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile, fitted with a nuclear warhead. Experts say the North may be able to reach such capability in the next couple of years.

Earlier this month, Pyongyang fired off four ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan, reportedly reaching within 200 kilometers (120 miles) of Japan’s shoreline.

North Korea has been criticized for improving its military and missile capabilities under the name of space programs.
