  • Japan prepping for evacuation of tens of thousands in South Korea ... it's looking like August of 1914

    North Korean military officials encourage soldiers to steal ... soldiers tired of relentless hunger are frequently deserting the army to steal food. Even military officers are encouraging the practice

    Desperation can lead to truly psychotic behavior... like heading South to steal THEIR food.

    • U.S. and South Korea Near Completion of Missile-Defense System

      SEOUL, South Korea — The United States military plans to complete the deployment of an advanced missile-defense system in South Korea on Thursday, days after North Korea detonated what it called a missile-delivered hydrogen bomb in an underground nuclear test, the South
      Korean Defense Ministry said.

      Despite angry protests from China, Seoul and Washington have agreed to push ahead with the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, or Thaad, which they said was designed to protect South Korean and American troops from possible missile attacks from North Korea.

      China has vehemently opposed the Thaad deployment, arguing that it would exacerbate tensions with North Korea and could undermine China’s own nuclear deterrent by giving the United States another means to monitor its missiles. Angry Chinese have boycotted South Korean cars and cultural offerings, like TV dramas.

      Villagers in Seongju, South Korea, where a Thaad battery was to be installed, also opposed the deployment, fearing that the powerful radar would hurt their health, a concern the Defense Ministry said was scientifically groundless. Joining forces with the farmers were political activists who argued that the Thaad deployment would only increase military tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

      In April, the United States installed the radar and two of the six interceptor-missile launchers of the Thaad battery on an abandoned hilltop golf course in Seongju, 135 miles southeast of Seoul, the capital. The battery became operational immediately.

      Makes one wonder what real agendas are when defensive system deployments spark protests.

      Six launchers with eight tubes each. Somehow suspect the NorKs have more than 48 missile they can throw at the South or elsewhere.

        Doesn't matter where they live, Leftists always hate their own country.

        ... unless it's North Korea, apparently.

        You mean, ones that work?
        I wouldn't count on it.

        However, if their Godfather China has been slipping them the stuff to make more, all bets are off.
