It should be obvious, now, even to the most vocal and acetic naysayers that no matter how much they try to declare that nothing will happen regarding North Korea, they’re wrong. It is happening, as we speak, and the buildup reached a high octave with North Korea’s sixth nuclear detonation, one that experts are saying was between 100 to 120 kilotons. This detonation occurred in North Korea’s test facility on Sunday, and North Korean news stated that it was a hydrogen bomb. Here’s a Wall Street Journal article excerpt:
“In a televised statement, North Korea described the underground explosion, which triggered a large earthquake, as a “perfect success in the test of a hydrogen bomb for an ICBM.” Pyongyang said, “the creditability of the operation of the nuclear warhead is fully guaranteed.” The test came just hours after leader Kim Jong Un showed off what he described as a hydrogen bomb capable of being mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile.”
Now, the Western Consumer Marketing/Euro Arrogance-Confidence News Networks and Politicos all decried North Korea’s capabilities for years. The news-twisters and politicos still only begrudgingly admit what recognized experts have been jumping up and down to warn the public about for years, namely this:
- That North Korea does indeed possess nuclear weapons
- North Korea does have ICBM’s capable of delivering a nuclear warhead
- North Korea possesses the technology and the ability to deploy an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon
- Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM’s) are in North Korea’s arsenal
- Two satellites (Kwangmyongsang-3 and Kwangmyongsang-4) are currently orbiting the earth, and each satellite passes over the United States several times per day
- The possibility exists that the satellites are carrying/have been fitted with an EMP weapon
- The central focus of North Korea’s strategic doctrine regarding nuclear war is geared toward an EMP strike
This is part of that article that shows how science and stupidity go together, as follows:
In July, it test-fired two ICBMs that experts say they believe are capable of reaching many parts of the U.S. mainland. “The Kim regime made the strategic decision to develop a nuclear armed ICBM that can strike the United States,” said Leif-Eric Easley, a professor of international studies at Ewha Woman’s University in Seoul. “It is in a sprint to deploy that capability, because it wants the world to recognize it before returning to diplomatic talks, and before sanctions become unbearable.” However, analysts have been divided on whether North Korea could shrink a nuclear warhead to fit on the tip of a missile. Many also remain skeptical about whether a North Korean warhead can survive the strain of re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere.
Skepticism will vanish when the power suddenly fails across the United States. The North Koreans can reach the U.S. mainland with a missile, and it will survive reentry. They can do this, and they will…only it will not come in the form of air-raid sirens blaring and people scurrying to the basements of buildings (as Fallout Shelters don’t exist anymore).
Here is the form that it will take. This is the real “kicker” that was just released Sunday by North Korea’s state-run news agency, reported on Daily Mail and if falls in line with the items just mentioned:
“North Korea’s state news agency warned that the weapon ‘is a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP attack.”
This falls in line with the warnings of Dr. Peter Pry, the head of the Committee to brief Congress on EMP threats against the U.S., the warnings of former Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R, MD), and a slew of other with access to detailed information on North Korea’s nuclear capabilities. When asked if the military option is on the table on Sunday, September 3rd, President Trump responded with, “We’ll see.”
No, ‘We the People’ will see it, but he will not, except on television. He will be in a bunker a mile underground, or in an area far removed from what happens in the moment of decisive action or the aftermath. There’s a good chance that nobody will ever see it coming. Remember: The North Koreans launched a missile that flew directly over Japan! This excerpt is from AP News on September 1st and summarizes “Japanese readiness” in a nutshell:
“Japan has a two-step missile defense system, including interceptors on destroyers in the Sea of Japan that would shoot down projectiles mid-flight and if that fails, surface-to-air PAC-3s on land.”
So, with that “protection,” why didn’t they shoot down the North Korean missile fired right over them last Monday? Maybe they were waiting for “Mothra” to stop it.
In any event, it appears the President is going to pursue a military option, as can be implied within his words. This also comes from the Wall Street Journal article:
“North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.” He also added: “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!”
What might that “one thing” be? Whatever happens, you can be certain that if we initiate an attack, North Korea will have allies, as China has already informed the world. The bottom line is that if you personally have not prepared and formulated a plan if things kick off, then you’re long in the tooth. Don’t remain in denial that the worst can happen, and take the initiative. It’s better to be prepared and be “wrong” every day than to be unprepared just once and have the worst come to pass on that day.
The next world war will be initiated with an EMP weapon detonated over the U.S., followed by a nuclear exchange and conventional warfare.
