NORTH KOREA PREPARES FOR WAR AS SIRENS GO OFF IN CAPITAL CITY OF PYONGYANG, CITIZENS EVACUATE

Alarm sirens have been sounding out in Pyongyang as tensions mount between North Korea and the US, which may lead to World War Three. A Russian newspaper has said that North Korean ordered an evacuation of more than 600,000 residents, which was a quarter of the city, as fears are growing over a nuclear strike. The media said that families had been torn apart thanks to the evacuation while leader Kim Jong-Un is set to set off a war with US President Donald Trump, following many months of the build-up of troops along with testing of nuclear weapons.

US AIR FORCE SUCCESSFULLY TESTS NEW B61-12 NUCLEAR GRAVITY BOMB IN NEVADA

America begins test launches of modernised nuclear weapons. Onlookers have become increasingly concerned about the bellicose nature of the Trump administration following an increase in American military tension in both Syria and North Korea. 
This week, anxieties were raised further after the American military dropped ‘the mother of all bombs’ on a target in Afghanistan which is believed to have been an ISIS pathway. Now it appears as though there may be further caused for alarm as the US National Nuclear Security Administration has announced the successful field test of the upgraded gravity nuclear bomb in a test site in Nevada. President Trump has given the green light to the US military to go ahead with an ambitious and incredibly expensive modernisation program related to the nuclear triad. According to Brian Becker, the director of the anti-war ANSWER coalition, President Trump has given a ‘black check’ to his generals, and they are currently in the midst of planning to test all…

BUNKER BUSTER: Bomb deadlier than MOAB could be used on North Korea, says weapons expert

AMERICA is “moving down the track” to using an even more powerful bomb in North Korea than the one it dropped in Afghanistan, according to one weapons expert.


Dr Martin Navias, of King’s College London’s Centre for Defence Studies, said the MOAB (Massive Ordnance Air Blast) bomb, which was used on an ISIS tunnel in Nangahar, was not the most powerful weapon in Donald Trump’s arsenal.

Aside from the MOAB bomb – the GBU-43 – nicknamed the “Mother of All Bombs”, he said another bomb, the GBU-57 – the Massive Ordnance Penetrator – was capable of even more destruction.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s World at One, he said: “There are numerous weapons in the Americans’ arsenal that have not been used.

“There’s another weapon that’s even more interesting. We’re talking today about the GBU-43, there’s another one, the GBU-57, that’s the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, and that will be very interesting to use practically because that one goes against deepened, protected targets – that’s a bunker buste…

North Korea surprises with display of new missiles

(CNN)North Korea put its adversaries on notice Saturday, when it showed off a bevy of new missiles and launchers at its annual military parade.
Pyongyang showed off two new intercontinental ballistic missile-sized canisters as well as displaying its submarine-launched ballistic missile and a land-based version of the same for the first time, according to analysts.
If North Korea has ICBMs, it could give it the ability to strike targets in the mainland US and Europe. The shorter range ballistic missiles displayed Saturday, meanwhile, are a threat to countries in the Asian region.
North Korea's display comes as tensions on the Korean Peninsula have spiked to alarming levels.


A missile believed to be the Pukguksong-1, a submarine-launched ballistic missile.
The US Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson strike group to the region last weekend, and US President Donald Trump has been tweeting this week that if China can't rein in North Korea's nuclear program the US wil…

SPOTTED: Putin 'moves military forces' to North Korean border as world prepares for WAR

VIDEO has been released allegedly showing a mass military mobilisation in Vladivostok, Russia, just eight miles from the border with North Korea, as the world edges towards war.


Russia has reportedly moved military vehicles towards the city, which is within striking distance of North Korea.

The dramatic move, unconfirmed by the Russian government, was spotted by residents in the border city and posted on social media.

This comes as North Korea warned that they are prepared for all-out war with the US, while China pleads for the two powers to back down from escalation.

Kim Jong-Un aide warns 'reckless' Donald Trump North Korea will 'annihilate U.S with our style of nuclear strike warfare'

A close aide of Kim Jong-Un has warned 'reckless' Donald Trump that North Korea will 'annihilate the U.S with our style of nuclear strike warfare'.

The threat came as the country's leader watched on as the country's military put on a huge display of strength in Pyongyang.

The despot leader, 33, applauded alongside military leaders as thousands of troops and tanks filled the streets of the capital on Saturday morning.

At the ceremony, Choe Ryong Hae, addressed the packed square with a characteristically bellicose warning to the United States.

"If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with annihilating strike, and we will respond to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike warfare," he said.

North Korea has vowed to retaliate in a "merciless manner as not to allow the aggressors to survive" against the US and its allies if Washington chose to…

HONG KONG — China warned on Friday that tensions on the Korean Peninsula could spin out of control, as North Korea said it could test a nuclear weapon at any time and a United States naval group neared the peninsula — an American effort to sow doubt in Pyongyang over how President Trump might respond.

“The United States and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent, and there have been storm clouds gathering,” China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, said in Beijing, according to Xinhua, the state news agency.

“If they let war break out on the peninsula, they must shoulder that historical culpability and pay the corresponding price for this,” Mr. Wang said.

The comments were unusually blunt from China, which has been trying to steer between the Trump administration’s demands for it to do more to stop North Ko…

The Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has denied the information that it suffered losses during a US strike, carried out with the largest non-nuclear bomb known as the “mother of all bombs,” the SITE organization, which monitors information activity of terrorists, reported.


“The Islamic State’s (IS) Amaq News Agency denied reports of the group incurring casualties in America dropping a ‘Massive Ordnance Air Blast’ (MOAB),” the SITE report reads.

The White House explained that the strike’s target was a system of tunnels, which was used by militants. This was the first combat use of a bomb of this typ…

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he has no plans for a federal system in Turkey, the Anadolu news agency reported. The statement was made on Friday, ahead of Sunday’s historic referendum.


A federal system “is not on our agenda, it will not be,” Erdogan said during a rally in the central Turkish province of Konya. “We are the greatest advocate of the unitary structure of Turkey,” he added.

As the news agency noted, Turkey is a unitary country, which has not had regional administration with executive powers since the moment of the republic’s establishment in 1923.

The Erdogan’s statements were made just after leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Devlet Bahceli, had expressed his concern over allegations that the Turkish government has plans to move the country towards a federal system after the constitu…
