An American citizen has been taken into custody on suspicion of “hostile acts” against the North Korean government, officials said Sunday.
“A relevant institution of the DPRK detained American citizen Kim Hak
Song on May 6 under a law of the DPRK on suspension of his hostile acts
against it,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. DPRK
is an acronym for North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s
Republic of Korea.
“A relevant institution is now conducting a detailed investigation into his crimes,” the Agency added.
An employee of the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology,
Kim is the fourth American citizen to be held by the North Korean
regime, and the second to be detained in just two weeks.
Another U.S. citizen, Kim Sang Duk, also known as “Tony Kim,” was
arrested on Apr. 22 at Pyongyang Airport under suspicion of similar
charges, “committing criminal acts of hostility” against the regime.

Two days after the latest provocative missile test by North Korea, in which it launched a “new type” of ballistic missile, one which experts warned had a
substantially longer range than any existing rocket North Korea had
fired, on Monday morning North Korea announced that it had successfully
conducted a mid-to-long range missile test on Sunday supervised by
leader Kim Jong Un which was aimed at verifying the capability to carry a “large scale heavy nuclear warhead.”
The country’s KCNA news agency further said that the Hwasong-12
missile was launched at the highest angle so as not to affect the
security of neighboring countries and flew 787 kilometers reaching an
altitude of 2,111.5 kilometers.
In an earlier article, we explained how and why the ballistic missile
used may have been the most advanced one tested by North Korea yet.

North Korea successfully tested a newly-developed ballistic missile,
seeking to verify the new missile’s capability to carry a nuclear
warhead, the North Korean government said Monday.
“The test-fire aimed at verifying the tactical and technological
specifications of the newly developed ballistic rocket capable of
carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead,” said the Korean Central
News Agency (KCNA), North Korea’s state-run media service.
The test, the country’s seventh this year, was conducted on Sunday
and drew significant ire from White House officials, who called the
North Korean regime a “flagrant menace” in a statement.
“The United States maintains our ironclad commitment to stand with
our allies in the face of the serious threat posed by North Korea,” the
statement went on to say.
More hostile rhetoric flew from the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un
after the test, accusing the United States of “browbeating” non-nuclear

One month ago, when we first discussed that in addition to the CVN-70 Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group,
the US was deploying two more carriers toward the Korean peninsula,
some took the Yonhap-sourced report skeptically: after all, what’s the
incremental symbolic impact of having two aircraft carriers next to
North Korea when just one would more than suffice. One month later, and
the report has been proven half right: according to CNN,
in addition to the first US carrier already on location, the US Navy is
moving the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier to the Korean Peninsula
where it will conduct dual-carrier training exercises with the USS Carl
After completing its maintenance period in Yokosuka, Japan, the USS Ronald Reagan, just as we first reported a month ago, departed for the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday, according to the Navy.
“Coming out of a long in-port maintenance period we have to ensure
that Ronald Reagan and the remainder of the strike group are integrated
properly as we move forward,” Rear Adm. Charles Williams said in a press
release. Once it arrives in the region, the carrier will conduct a
variety of training exercises but primarily focus on certifying its
ability to safely launch and recover aircraft, the service said. In
other words, traing for combat missions involved the North Korean
The formal deployment comes several days after North Korea
demonstrated a surprising leap forward in its missile program after
launching a projectile that achieved “successful” controlled reentry
into the earth’s lower atmosphere rather than falling back to the
surface, according to a preliminary US intelligence analysis.

I recently received an email from someone who expressed the following conern:
“I’m getting a bit antsy about a potential triggering event in
North Korea that might lead to a wider situation, for which we as a
nation are not yet ready.”
And here’s the topic launch, a hypothetical:
“What if you came upon evidence that convinced you of a high
likelihood that war would break out with North Korea, say, on July 4th,
2017. What would you do NOW that’s any different from what you have been

reported to be eventually making its way toward Korea.”

Japanese are no longer taking any chances against the rogue North
Korean regime and Kim Jong-Un’s insistence on the continued testing of
ballistic missiles. Japan is now participating in more frequent
evacuation drills in the event that they are attacked by North Korea.
Although drills of this type aren’t the first in Japan this year, they are increasing in frequency. Sunday’s evacuation drill
in the town of Abu, Yamaguchi prefecture, is showing how concerned the
Japanese are about a potential North Korean attack. The town of about
3,500 people some 760 km (475 miles) west of Tokyo involved a simulated
North Korean missile attack. And more Japanese towns and cities are taking steps to brace for what they hope will never happen.
North Korea has been increasing the number of its missile test launches
in recent months. Launching 12 so far this year and three last month,
with many splashing into the Sea of Japan, the Japanese are rightly
concerned. Some of North Korea’s missiles have even landed inside Japan’s exclusive economic zone, which extends up to 200 miles from its shores.

As of this writing, a final carrier group is heading toward North Korea and the immediate vicinity. When
you have three carrier groups sitting off the shores of a nation
decidedly hostile to your nation? The chances are highly probable that a
war is about to begin. The U.S. has tried everything from
sanctions to shows of force. The latter may have been, up until this
point, smaller in scale; however, they were serious nonetheless.
Flyovers of B-1 bombers close to the North Korean border, the deployment
of Aegis and THAAD missile systems, and the influx of nuclear-capable
cruise missiles via submarine are some examples.
Take the time to refer to an excellent article by Stefan Stanford of All News Pipeline
that features a video with Dr. Peter V. Pry, the U.S.’s foremost expert
on EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) attack against America. As outlined in
previous articles, Dr. Pry is convinced that North Korea has already
succeeded in miniaturizing a warhead capable of a large-scale delivery of an EMP
weapon sans a high megaton nuclear explosion. Dr. Pry has explained
over the course of more than a decade how the miniaturization is not
difficult, and an EMP can be delivered upon a weapon in the low-kilotons range of delivery.
The article, titled This ‘Mad Max’ Scenario Could Lead To Planes Falling Out Of The Skies,
includes an interview with current Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog”
Mattis stating plainly that North Korea is a threat to the United
States right now. With the carriers USS Nimitz, the USS Carl Vinson, and
the USS Ronald Reagan and their groups in the area, this is plainly a
serious matter. It cannot be discounted or relegated to the “fear porn”
category that naysayers are constantly expressing on this venue.

As tensions continue to rise between the United States and the rogue nation of North Korea, the missile tests conducted also continue. This is now Kim Jong-Un’s fourth missile test in one month, as the volatile North Korean dictator continues to balk at the United Nations sanctions against his country. In fact, this is the nation’s first missile test since the UN implemented more, harsher, sanctions on the fascist nation.
South Korea’s joint chiefs said the projectiles, launched near the
eastern port city of Wonsan, were believed to be surface-to-ship cruise

The Trump administration has asked Beijing to impose what would be
the first round of sanctions against nearly 10 Chinese companies and
individuals that trade with North Korea, part of a strategy to starve,
and ultimately shut down, Kim’s nuclear program, the WSJ reports.
Recall that while U.S. sanctions on North Korea target virtually the
nation’s entire economy; U.N. sanctions are less stringent and still
allow for significant nonmilitary trade, especially between the isolated
nation and its biggest trading partner, China. While there is no firm
deadline, senior US officials cited as sources by WSJ indicated that
the Treasury Department could impose unilateral sanctions on some of
these entities before the end of the summer if Beijing doesn’t act.
did not name the entities being targeted, however clues to their
identities can be found in a report released Monday by a
Washington-based nonpartisan research group, C4ADS, that identifies
several Chinese entities of concern in the hopes of exposing illicit
trading networks. Those include a Chinese businessman and his sister
said to be connected to a ship intercepted by Egypt last year while smuggling 30,000 North Korean rocket-propelled grenades. US officials told WSJ that the report reflects part of its strategy towards North Korea.

North Korean tyrant, Kim Jong-Un has been preparing for this for a
long time. The dictator is now alleging to be only one step away from
obtaining a nuclear weapon with the ability to strike the United States,
and a foreign policy expert is backing up that claim.
Kim Jong-un has been steadily building towards an ICBM (intercontinental nuclear ballistic missile) and has conducted several missile tests in the past months in his race towards obtaining one. His most recent one landed in the sea of Japan just a few miles away from the mainland itself.
Jeffrey Lewis, a top expert on North Korean missiles, said Kim Jong-un is one key component away from having a fully-functioning nuclear weapons arsenal.
