From DNI, Dan Coats:
Past efforts have failed to halt North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs and nuclear and ballistic missile tests. With each provocation, North Korea jeopardizes stability in Northeast Asia and poses a growing threat to our allies and the U.S. homeland.
North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority. Upon assuming office, President Trump ordered a thorough review of U.S. policy pertaining to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
Today, along with Chainnan of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford, we briefed members of Congress on the review. The president’s approach aims to pressure North Korea into dismantling its nuclear, ballistic missile, and proliferation programs by tightening economic anctions and pursuing diplomatic measures with our allies and regional partners.
We are engaging responsible members of the international community to increase pressure on he DPRK in order to convince the regime to de-escalate and return to the path of dialogue. We will maintain our close coordination and cooperation with our allies, especially the Republic of Korea and Japan, as we work together to preserve stability and prosperity in the region.
The United States seeks stability and the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We remain open to negotiations towards that goal. However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies.
Having been bested in every theater of war imaginable, the US military produced a wet fart yesterday in the form of a Minuteman III launch.
The Russian SS-27 Topol, like all their ICBMs, is mobile and hidden from Five Eyes satellites, denying such pathetic things as Tomahawk cruise missiles a target, and approaching its target at Mach 21, making it entirely indefensible, and certainly not by such ridiculous toys as an Aegis battery.
Should those 8 inch floppies in US silos actually fire ICBMs before being taken out in anything but a pre-emptive first strike, the Russian S-400 ABM warheads will intercept them in the stratosphere, before their nuclear warheads have a chance to trigger.
In Kaliningrad, KRET Richag-AV and Khibiny ECM devices will render the battlefield useless to NATO, just as they have done in Ukraine and Syria. NATO knows this and yet they mass for war.
Three generations of nuclear threat has produced the world’s greatest ABM defenses and offensive nuclear weapons. Russia is the preeminent producer of rocket engines and this translates to amazing tactical weapons such as the short range Iskander. All of these weapons have multiple guided warheads and secondary rockets which approach target at supersonic speed.
We are marching to war under the most ludicrous circumstances and we will lose.
The Zionist neocon warmongers, led in the US by the traitorous SecDef, have scoured the earth for a suitable victim of war not yet robbed of nukes and scattered to the wind. The DPRK is all that remains, so there you go.
The absence of rational actors invites a nuclear first strike. But long before that, we may see all the Russian tricks put to use, humiliating Mattis and his presidential puppet.
China is in too precarious a position, economically, financially and politically to unleash its military mysteries, which are advanced primarily by the Russians.
Vladivostok sits in the path of prevailing winds, should nukes be used and is a terrifically convenient port for Russia to exert its influence.
This may look like another dust up with the Norks, but it is prelude to WWIII with the Russians, and we will lose.
It just occurred to me: this isn’t about Pyongyang at all, but Vladivostok. With NATO surrounding Kahliningrad in the West, this is the neocon’s idiotic pincer movement, forcing Russia to fight on two fronts, 10,000 kms apart.
Actually, if you count the nonsense going on in the Black Sea, it’s three fronts. The Ukies were supposed to make it four, but that hasn’t worked out.
ECM used by Russia in Ukraine and Syria scared the shit out of NATO.
