Talk Of Nuclear Winter Hits North Korea
August 8, 2017: President Trump's most recent verbal response is clearer than ever.
July 30, 2017: Less than a month ago, the dovish South Korea president did not want US THAAD (anti-missile protection); now that NOKO has launched two ICBM missiles in the past 48 hours, now he wants his own nuclear missiles. What a naive politician. Finally sees the light.
July 28, 2017: NOKO launches an ICBM with a range that can hit the US. Within 24 hours, a political hack is fired as Trump's chief of staff, and replaced by a retired US Marine general.
May 14, 2017: NOKO launches another ballistic missile. Goes 500 miles. For NOKO: war is an existential event. For the US: war is a military exercise.
May 1, 2017: Japan dispatches its largest warship since WWII to protect US supply ship from Kim Jong-un's missiles; supply ship apparently resupplying the USS Carl Vinson off Korean peninsula.
April 4, 2017: NOKO fires missile into sea off east coast of South Korea. Meanwhile, USA has warned that the "clock has run out" on North Korea. Chinese President XI to meet with President Trump this weekend. Can anyone say "Chinese fireworks?"
March 28, 2017: NOKO could be in final stages of nuke test; Japan pre-emptive strike?
March 17, 2017: no links; stories everywhere. Rhetoric rising. SecState Tillerson says diplomacy has failed. Says all options -- including nuclear weapons -- in SOKO, Japan -- are on the table. To the best of my knowledge this is the first the US has confronted NOKO mano a mano, instead of easing sanctions.
March 14, 2017: Trump losing his patience ... after only 54 days. LOL.
"Boost phase interceptor" is the new catchphrase.
