BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – According to North Korean state media, the Korean People’s Army (KPA) are making preparations for the launch of four ballistic missile towards US territory.

North Korean state media said that, with the permission of supreme leader Kim Jong-un, the KPA would live-fire four Hwasong-12 intermediate range ballistic missiles (IRBM) towards Guam island (a US territory in the Pacific) and that these missiles would land within about 30 to 40 kilometers of its coast. Furthermore, it was clarified that the plans to conduct such an operation could be concluded by around “mid-August”.

In the event that such action is carried out, the missiles are expected to fly over Japan to a total distance of almost 3,400 kilometers. Flight time is estimated at just short of eighteen minutes.

The island of Guam has major US military infrastructures present on it including airbases which house US Air Force strategic bombers.

Most US politicians, military figures and geopolitical analysts have concluded that North Korea would probably be wiped off the map and its current government destroyed in the event actual hostilities are triggered between Pyongyang and Washington.

USA has already 800 foreign bases…
A few less won’t be a bad thing…

This is “BRINKMANSHIP”, Trump plays the “madman’s strategy”, exactly like Nixon or Reagan did. Visibly, there are no excitation in US bases or US-Navy movements… Let’s hope it’ll still so… The ‘brinkmanship’ was already near to make cold war to become hot but with the Soviets, there was less risk as they were peers. Here we have an asymmetric thing and moreover, Trump just managed to get Xiping and Putin aggravate UN sanctions on conditions he now violates… This is becoming very dangerous as s.o. with nothing to lose vs s.o. with a lot to lose will ALWAYS be more… Read more »
