Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, has ordered the evacuation of 25% of residents from Pyongyang and said they are to leave immediately. 600,000 people are to be urgently evacuated and it is thought that the evacuation has been prompted by the strained tensions with the USA. The bomb shelters of Pyongyang are not adequate enough to accommodate all of the population of North Korea, so 600,000 individuals; many with criminal records are going to have to leave the city so that others are able to use the bomb shelters. 
At the same time, it has been said that a modified Ohio type rocket carrier is going to carry 154 Tomahawk type missiles and this is said to be joining the US Navy which has been deployed close to the Korean Peninsula coast. The missile carrier will arrive at its port of registration by 18 April.

The US President Donald Trump’s administration demonstrates its interest to get more involved in the Yemen war, the Nation magazine reported. According to the magazine, the interest of the US President is driven in part by Saudi Arabia’s propaganda, according to which the Houthi militia, fighting against the rump government of Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, is backed up by Iran.

As the Nation reported, last week, Commander of the US Central Command (CENTCOM), General Joseph Votel, said during his speech to the US Congress that Yemen is a key element for US security. According to the General, the country, located astride the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait at the mouth of the Red Sea, could be used by an enemy to interrupt sea traffic in this area, through which about 10 percent of world trade flows.

The magazine noted that the war itself “poses the biggest threat to marit…


The Iraqi Army started a new operation to liberate Al-Tanak neighborhood in Mosul city. Earlier the Army successfully liberated Al-Yrmuk and Al-Mattahen neighborhood during a rapid operation.

1983 CIA Document Reveals Plan To Destroy Syria, Foreshadows Current Crisis

By Tyler Durden

A Prophetically foreshadowing the current crisis (and apparent action plan), leaked CIA documents from the reign of Bashar al-Assad's father in the 1980s show a Washington Deep State plan coalescing to "bring real muscle to bear against Syria," toppling its leader (in favor of one amenable to US demands) , severing ties with Russia (its primary arms dealer), and paving the way for an oil and gas pipeline of Washington's choosing.

As's Brandon Turbeville detailed (just a day before Trump unleashed his Tomahawks), as the Syrian crisis enters its sixth year, the Donald Trump administration is looking more and more like the Obama administration every day. With the Trump regime refusing to open useful dialogue with Russia regarding Syria, its obvious anti-Iran and pro-Israel positioning, and support for a very questionable “safe zone” plan for Syria, the odds of a rational U.S. policy in regards to Syria has lower and lower odds of exis…

Australia Beckons A War With China

By John Pilger

Australia is sleep-walking into a confrontation with China. Wars can happen suddenly in an atmosphere of mistrust and provocation, especially if a minor power, like Australia, abandons its independence for an "alliance" with an unstable superpower.

The United States is at a critical moment. Having exported its all-powerful manufacturing base, run down its industry and reduced millions of its once-hopeful people to poverty, principal American power today is brute force. When Donald Trump launched his missile attack on Syria - following his bombing of a mosque and a school - he was having dinner in Florida with the President of China, Xi Jinping.

Trump's attack on Syria had little to do with chemical weapons. It was, above all, to show his detractors and doubters in Washington's war-making institutions - the Pentagon, the CIA, the Congress - how tough he was and prepared to risk a war with Russia. He had spilled blood in Syria, a Russian protectorate; he wa…
