    RAGING: Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered the evacuation of Pyongyang
    NORTH Korea has ordered 600,000 residents in Pyongyang to evacuate immediately as war fears escalate, according to staggering reports.

    By Jess Bell00.04, 13 Apr 2017 UPDATED 12.04, 13 Apr 2017


    Russian newspaper Pravda Report claims 25% of the city's residents have been told to flee.

    According to South Korean media, residents in the hermit kingdom have said goodbye to each other sparking concerns tyrannical Kim Jong-un could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.

    The latest rumours come after North Korean officials announced a "big and important event" tomorrow.

    Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for the event on North Korea's biggest national celebration called "Day of the Sun".

    MYSTERY: Foreign journalists in Pyongyang are preparing for a 'big event' tomorrow
    “All of that is very worrisome because that may very well have a nuclear weapon someday”

    Bruce Klingner
    Around 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15.

    Donald Trump and Jong-un continue to bash heads as war fears grow between the two nations.

    Officials in North Korea have warned nuclear war could break out at any minute thanks to the "extremely tense" situation on the Korean Peninsula.

    America sent a US Navy strike group towards the Western Pacific in a show of force, while North Korea warned it would launch a nuke attack in response to any act of aggression.

    And China moved 150,000 soldiers close to the North Korea border in preparation for war.

    It comes after Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missile to blast a Syrian airfield in response for the country's brutal chemical attack which killed 79 civilians.

    North Korean officials gave no details about the nature of the surprise event or where it would take place, but in the past similar announcement have turned out to be relatively low-key.

    They told foreign journalists in Pyongyang invited to mark the national holiday that their schedule had been cancelled, and to instead meet early on Thursday to prepare for a "big and important event".

    In 2016 foreign journalists underwent hours of investigation by North Korean officials ahead of what turned out to be a pop concert to mark the finale of a ruling Workers' Party congress.

    But on the 100th day of the Sun in April 2012, North Korea attempted to launch a long-range rocket.

    With war tensions raging, some are wondering whether Kim will use the special date to strike America after months of threats over nuclear weapons.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping called for a peaceful resolution to the North Korean problem in a telephone conversation with Trump today.

    Security experts recently warned Kim could be planning an underwater nuclear attack using a secret submarine.

    In the past North Korea's submarines have been able to disappear and avoid detection, with up to 50 vanishing off the radar in 2015.

    Security expert Bruce Klingner told CNBC: “We didn't know where they were at the time. One would hope that we would keep very close tabs on those that could launch the submarine-launched ballistic missiles [SLBMs].

    “All of that is very worrisome because that may very well have a nuclear weapon someday.”

    WORLD WAR 3 coming or hoax created to eliminate Kim?

    And Should India use this opportunity to settle scores with Pakistan as China will be busy at North Korean border while we finish China's pet dog Pakistan.

    75% chance you are right.25% chance you are wrong.

    This time it is different because the fat kid has tested a rocket engine which could be used in missiles that could reach US mainland. There is a chance that USA would take out nuclear and missile infrastructure of North Korea, even if some "Chinks" in Seoul dies in artillery barrage from North Korea (Hee Haw). After all, in eyes of USA, lives of Koreans is cheaper than potential loss of life of white Americans.

    A shocking report in a Russian newspaper also claimed that 25% of Pyongyang's resident have verb order to evacuate the city.

    I do hope and wish I am proven wrong but things do not look good. Any miscommunication and miscalculation can prove fatal.

    This could be hoax by west to justify attack on North Korea to eliminate Kim.

    Even if it doesn't escalate to world war 3 levels and remains local conflict involving US Japan and south Korea
    it would be bad for world as world economy would be in tail spin.

    The S Koreans aren't doing anything drastic after all.

    Just eliminate Kim-Jung-whatever, preferably with his entire family who could take charge after him, and then the infighting for power will fail that hellish regime like pack of cards, probably people of North Korea will tear them down once the iron grip of the state is removed.

    I think both US and China need NK to be existed but certainly don't want NK always acting as a crazy dog. If US really want to open the war with NK, SK will beg US not doing it immediately.

    North Korea warns the US it will go to war as it parades new submarine-based ballistic missiles in a massive military parade.

    North Korea has warned America to end its "military hysteria" or face retaliation - as a US strike group, including an aircraft carrier, steams towards the region.

    Pyongyang issued the warning as it displayed new submarine-based ballistic missiles in a massive military parade in the city.

    The reclusive state said it was prepared to respond to any attacks with "nuclear attacks of our own style" as tension mounted in the region.

    [​IMG]
    Image:pyongyang used the parade to flex its military muscle, warning the US it would retaliate
    China, Pyongyang's sole major ally, has warned that the tensions must be stopped from reaching an "irreversible and unmanageable stage".

    Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said: "We call on all parties to refrain from provoking and threatening each other.

    "One has the feeling that a conflict could break out at any moment.

    "Once a war really happens, the result will be nothing but multiple loss. No one can become a winner."

    [​IMG]
    Image:Thousands of soldiers attended the parade
    On Saturday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived at Pyongyang's main Kim Il Sung Square, named after his grandfather.

    He led a military parade marking the "Day of the Sun", the birth anniversary of the state's founding father.

    [​IMG]
    Image:A woman walks past a TV screen in South Korea broadcasting live footage of a parade marking the 105th anniversary of the birth of North Korea's founder Kim Il-Sung
    Goose-stepping soldiers and marching bands filled the square, next to the Taedonggang River that flows through Pyongyang.

    Tanks, multiple rocket launch systems and other weapons followed, while single-engine planes flew in a 105 formation overhead.

    South Korea's military said it believed some of the missiles in the parade included new types of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM).

    The North has said it has developed and would launch a missile that can strike the mainland US.

    "All the brigandish provocative moves of the US in the political, economic and military fields pursuant to its hostile policy toward the DPRK will thoroughly be foiled through the toughest counteraction of the army and people of the DPRK," a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army said.

    DPRK stands for the official name of North Korea, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    "Our toughest counteraction against the US and its vassal forces will be taken in such a merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive," the military spokesman continued.

    The US has warned that the policy of "strategic patience" with North Korea is over.

    The North has conducted several missile and nuclear tests in defiance of UN and unilateral sanctions.

    Video:Trump on huge bomb and how N Korea 'will be taken care of'
    Vice President Mike Pence travels to South Korea on Sunday for a long-planned 10-day tour of Asia.

    In the past two weeks, Donald Trump has shown his willingness to resort to military methods.

    He ordered a missile attack on Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack.

    And earlier this week he dropped the 'mother of all bombs' on caves used by the so-called Islamic State in Afghanistan.

    Several UK newspapers reported that the US and North Korea were on the 'brink of war'.

    "Nuclear attacks of our own style"?:alcoholic:

    On topic, seems China is 'upgrading' the North Korean capabilities.

    Seems that they nicely "improvised" an A-100 :biggthumpup:
