    I doubt if any one truly realizes how much smart bombs have changed warfare. Those 15000 pieces of artillery would only last a very short amount of time, expect are already targeted..

    Don't know why people fear north Korea.
    1. Their missiles fall into the sea or explode upon launch
    2. They don't have any form of terrorism
    3. They enslave and kill their own people.

    Any kind of trade sanction from Russia or China is enough to choke north Korea.

    Mystic who foretold Donald Trump presidency predicts EXACT date World War 3 will start
    Self-proclaimed 'messenger of God' Horacio Villegas claims to have correctly predicted Trump would attack Syria and says global nuclear war is just WEEKS away

    A mystic who claims to have accurately foretold Donald Trump's presidency has predicted the exact date World War 3 will start.

    Self-proclaimed 'messenger of God' Horacio Villegas believes nuclear war will break out on the 100th anniversary of the visitation of Our Lady of Fatima.

    The clairvoyant claims to have envisioned Trump would win the US election as far back as 2015, according to the Daily Star .

    He reportedly predicted the billionaire businessman would become the “illuminati king” who will “ bring the world into WW3 ”.

    Chillingly, one of his prophecies appears to have already come true.

    Villegas warned the US leader would attack Syria , which took place earlier this month when Trump launched a huge air strike on an airbase in Homs.

    He also predicted that it would bring Russia, North Korea and China into the deadly global conflict - something which, if the prophecy is to be believed, may be just WEEKS away.

    It is claimed that Our Lady – another name for the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus – visited Fatima in Portugal on six different occasions.

    The first visitation was said to have taken place on May 13, 1917.

    This was the day, according to the Catholic faith, that Our Lady warned people that if her requests to convert Russia to the faith were not followed, God would use the country to wreak havoc on the world.

    Villegas is convinced war will break out on the 100th anniversary of the visitation - in less than four weeks' time.

    The last visitation is said to have occurred later that year, on October 13, 1917, where sje s believed to have announced: "The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes."

    The mystic believes World War 3 will end on the 100th anniversary of that date.

    Villegas told the Daily Star : “The main message that people need to know in order be prepared is that between May 13th and October 13 2017, this war will occur and be over with much devastation, shock and death.”

    However, he warned that so-called false flag events will take place between April 13 and May 13 where attacks are carried out under incorrect information, including in Syria and North Korea.

    According to the US Navy, a F/A-18E jet based on the US Carl Vinson aircraft carrier crashed near the Philippines.
    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A pilot flying an F/A-18E combat aircraft ejected safely from his cockpit on landing approach to the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson and was recovered unharmed by a helicopter rescue crew, the US Navy said in a press release on Friday.

    "A pilot safely ejected and was quickly recovered by a helicopter assigned to [helicopter squadron] HSC-4 aboard USS Carl Vinson while conducting routine flight operations during a transit in the Celebes Sea," the release explained.

    Heading Where? USS Carl Vinson Spotted Near Indonesia, Not Korean Peninsula
    The incident took place in the Celebes Sea in the western Pacific. The Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia border the body of water. The distance from the Celebes Sea to the South Korean port of Busan is about 2300 miles.


    The incident occurred as the F/A-18E assigned to Carrier Air Wing 2 was on final approach to the Carl Vinson, the release explained.

    The incident is under investigation and the pilot under review by the Carl Vinson's medical team.

    After it turned out that the Carl Vinson deployed to deter North Korea did not reach the Sea of Japan reportedly because White House and Pentagon failed to communicate effectively and was spotted near Indonesia, it was reported that it will finally reach the Korean Peninsula later this month.

    Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that an "armada" is heading to the Korean Peninsula's shores amid a tensions with North Korea had escalated.

    Letting Pakistan get nukes is what is most telling of Chinese leadership.
    NK is a much saner nation, atleast they care for their own survival.

    North Korea Threatens Australia With Nuclear Strike Over ‘Toeing The Line’ With U.S.
    by CHLOE HUBBARD

    NEWS APR 23 2017, 5:59 AM ET


    North Korea has launched into a war of words against Australia over the country's alliance with the U.S., warning the country is within striking range of a nuclear weapon.

    A spokesman for the North Korean foreign ministry accused Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop of spouting "a string of rubbish against the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea)" over the country's missile testing, adding "Australia is blindly and zealously toeing the U.S. line."

    In Japan last week, Bishop said Australia supported the "United States' approach that all options be on the table with regard to curbing North Korea's illegal and belligerent behavior" and mooted the idea of further sanctions.

    Bishop's comments prompted the North Korean foreign ministry to launch a direct attack, which was broadcast on the Korean Central News Agency on Friday: "What she uttered can never be pardoned as it is an act against peace that patronizes and shields the U.S. extreme hostile policy toward the DPRK."

    "If Australia persists in following the U.S. moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the U.S. master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK. The Australian foreign minister had better think twice about the consequences to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering the U.S."

    Unfettered Bishop issued a statement Sunday saying North Korea should concentrate on its "long-suffering citizens, rather than building catastrophic weapons: "North Korea's threats of nuclear strikes against other nations further underlines the need for the regime to abandon its illegal nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs," she said.

    "These present a grave threat to its neighbors and if left unchecked, to the broader region including Australia. The North Korean government should invest in the welfare of its long-suffering citizens, rather than weapons of mass destruction."

    The posturing comes as Vice President Mike Pence spends his final day of a visit to Australia on Sunday taking part in tourist activities in Sydney.

    North Korea threatens to strike US aircraft carrier to show 'military's force'
    Published April 23, 2017

    North Korea threatened Sunday to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military prowess as two Japanese Navy ships joined a U.S. strike group for exercises in the Philippine Sea.

    “Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," according to North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party’s newspaper, the Rodong Sinmum.

    The paper also likened the USS Carl Vinson to a “gross animal” and said a strike on the carrier would be “an actual example to show our military’s force.”

    President Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson to sail to waters off the Korean Peninsula in response to the rising tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests and threats to attack the U.S. and its allies. Vice President Pence said Saturday that group would arrive “within days.”

    The Vinson and two other U.S. warships were joined by two Japanese destroyers as they continued their journey north in the western Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Navy said in a statement. The U.S. group also includes a guided-missile cruiser and a guided-missile destroyer.

    The aircraft carrier had canceled a scheduled visit to Australia to divert toward North Korea in a show of force, though it still conducted a curtailed training exercise with Australia before doing so.

    The Navy called the exercise "routine" and said it is designed to improve combined maritime response and defense capabilities, as well as joint maneuvering proficiency.

    The Vinson group has conducted three previous bilateral exercises with the Japanese Navy since leaving San Diego on Jan. 5 for a western Pacific deployment. The most recent one was in March.

    Analysts believe that North Korea could be gearing up for its sixth nuclear test in wake of a failed missile launch and ahead of the 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, which takes place Tuesday.

    North Korea conducted two of its five nuclear tests last year and is believed to be working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles that could reach the mainland U.S.
