North Korea: Nuclear war to start on the Day of the Sun

North Korea may have the ability to launch missiles with warheads filled with nerve gas, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday, April 13. Abe also said that North Korea may soon conduct a sixth nuclear test or launch ballistic missiles again.

“There is a possibility that North Korea is already capable of delivering missiles with sarin in its  warheads,” the Japanese prime minister said at parliamentary hearings, Reuters reports. Shinzo Abe recalled the infamous sarin attack in the Tokyo subway system from 1995. The attack, conducted by Aum Shinrikyo Japanese sect, killed 12 people.

On April 15, North Korea will celebrate the 105th anniversary since the birth of the founder of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung. This is the largest national holiday in the country, which is called the Day of the Sun. Kim Il Sung is referred to as the “Sun of the Nation” in the DPRK. In the past, North Korean leaders would test weapons on April 15.

Meanwhile, spokespeople for the South Korean Defense Ministry expressed their readiness to show resistance to “provocations of the North,” which may follow in connection with the celebration of the Day of the Sun on April 15. In addition, Seoul does not exclude a possibility of either a nuclear or a missile test on the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army, which the North celebrates on April 25.

Reportedly, the DPRK is prepared for a new nuclear test. According to 38 North U.S.-Korea Institute, commercial satellite images of the North Korean nuclear test site in Phungeri showed activity at the northern terminal, as well as new activity in the main administrative zone and a certain number of personnel around the command center of the test site. The images were taken on April 12.

Against the backdrop of growing tension on the Korean Peninsula, a question arises about further actions of the allies of the two Koreas. According to Japanese media outlets, the USA supposedly considers only two options for the situation to develop: either China increases pressure on the DPRK, or the United States attacks North Korea, should Beijing continue demonstration inaction.

Noteworthy, the US administration welcomed China’s move to abstain fro the voting in favor for the draft resolution of the UN Security Council to investigate the chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib. China made the decision following President Xi Jinping’s official visit to the United States. The White House called the decision a huge diplomatic victory.

In the meantime, Syrian President Bashar Assad expressed his support for the DPRK by sending a telegram to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un congratulating him on the 105th anniversary of his grandfather’s birthday. In the message, Assad calls the DPRK and Syria “friendly countries,” that counteract to “insane ambitions of major powers” whose intent is to subjugate other countries through expansionist and predatory policies.

Russia, for its part, is also monitoring the situation on the Korean Peninsula. On April 11, a group of Russian Navy warships arrived at the South Korean port of Pusan. The official goal of the campaign is the demonstration of the St. Andrew’s flag in the Asia-Pacific region and the further development of naval cooperation with APR countries.

On April 13, commander of the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation, Admiral Sergei Avakyants had a meeting with commander of the South Korean Navy, Vice Admiral Chung Jin Sobu. The meeting took place at the naval base of Pusan. The officials discusses issues of international military cooperation between the fleets of the two countries.

In the meanwhile, US aircraft carrier strike group lead by USS Carl Vinson is heading to the shores of South Korea. The group includes a missile cruiser and two missile destroyers.

DPRK officials, commenting on the dispatch of US ships to the Korean Peninsula, declared their readiness to get involved in a military confrontation with the United States should tensions escalate further. “We will take most severe countermeasures against the provocateurs to defend ourselves with the might of our weapons,” spokespeople for the North Korean Foreign Ministry said.

Pravda.Ru requested an opinion about the current development on the Korean Peninsula from Yevgeny Kim, an expert with the Center for Korean Studies at the Institute of the Far East.

“Do you think that a military conflict between North Korea and the USA is possible indeed?”

“I do not think that the Americans are crazy enough to attack North Korea, given the situation that has developed so far. The Northerners can answer. This is not Syria! They will certainly attack US ships and army bases. They have their own missiles for the purpose.”

“What does the South Korean press say at the moment?”

“The South Korean press considers the dialogue between Trump and Xi Jinping most important now. Xi Jinping has just returned from Washington. Yesterday, the Chinese leader had a telephone conversation with Trump. The fact is that Xi Jinping still believes the crisis should be resolved peacefully.

“The Americans may attack first, and then say that it was Pyongyang that attacked them first. They will use it as a reason to strike North Korea. They can do it easily, they have done that before – they started the war in Vietnam that way. They said that the Vietnamese attacked an American destroyer and a cruiser, but in fact it turned out that nothing like that happened, but the USA had already started military actions against Vietnam.

“Let’s remember the year 2013, when a decision was made to eliminate chemical weapons in Syria. ISIL terrorists staged a provocation back then too. They blew up ammo near Damascus and accused Assad of that. The Americans interfered, but Russia came to regulate the problem peacefully. Russia  said that Damascus was willing to destroy all of its chemical weapons.

“The Americans want China to put more pressure on North Korea – not only politically, but also economically. Strengthening economic sanctions against the DPRK could be an option.

“I would also like to pay attention to the recent statement from a representative of DPRK’s Ministry of Defense, who said that the Americans were trying to intimidate Pyongyang with their aircraft carriers, but North Korea would respond to the Americans accordingly. He then added: “We will not move a muscle to the actions of the Americans.”

“What does it mean?”

“North Korea is not going to take an initiative to strike the US aircraft carrier. Those people in Pyongyang are not crazy at all, they know perfectly well what an aircraft carrier is and what it can do. I’m sure that we will not see provocations on the part of North Korea: they do not want a military conflict to happen.”

“Is there any information about the evacuation of Pyongyang?”

“North Korea has repeatedly said before that the country was prepared for a military attack. They say that they can hide all their people in the mountains. I think that they have announced evacuation to be on the safe side, because the Americans are unpredictable.”

“They ordered the evacuation of 25 percent of Pyongyang residents – this is 600,000 people. Is it real?”

“They have mobilization programs in case of war. It can be real.”

Nuclear war threat comes from North Korea

Een nieuwe manier van IS(IS)- terreur

Aangeleverd door: Arie Goedhart

Unkillable IS fighters dispatched to Europe and Russia

Unkillable IS fighters dispatched to Europe and Russia. Terrorists

The so-called inghimasi fighters have been featured in the latest terror acts along with suicide bombers. Inghimasi can be translated as ‘to dive’. As a rule, they act in small groups – three to seven people. ‘Diving’ into the depth of enemies, they try to damage victims as severely as possible and then try to leave the sight not being noticed.

According to oversea experts, since 2017 they have been carrying out about 50-60 attacks monthly. Majority of them have taken place in Syria, and were aimed at check points of the government army and positions of Shia militia. On 25 February 2017 groups within Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham used inghimasi while attacking facilities of the government army in Homs.

As leaders of the group asserted, 5 fighters were engaged. On 20 March according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, inghimasi fighters attacked government troops in the area of Jobar and managed to get to the Abbasin bus station.

The inghimasi fighters are usually armed with guns, grenades and suicide belts, sometimes they have used grenade launchers.

Unlike suicide bombers, inghimasi take to self-explosion only if there is no way out. The decision is taken by themselves. Thus, under terror act at the Bataclan theatre in Paris in November 2015, they shot hostages first and then exploded themselves. In 2016 terrorists acted the same way at the Istanbul airport named after Ataturk. Thus, experts believe that every inghimasi may become a suicide bomber, but not vice versa.

Last year ISIS and al-Qaeda actively used inghimasi in Syria against Kurds, government army in Aleppo, in the area of Deir ez-Zor. In Iraq in early 2016 a group of inghimasi assaulted an airbase situated to the north of Tikrit.

While government forces move forward in Syria and Iraq, one should expect that terrorists will use inghimasi instead of jihadists more and more actively to carry out guerilla war and escalate situation not only in the Middle East, but beyond its borders.

Some specialists believe that tactic of inghimasi is a new element in the terror system. Special services and law-enforcement bodies will have to change their tactics. And the EU countries as well, which do not response to Russia’s offer to unite forces in combating terrorism, leaving political disputes behind let for some time at least.

The European colleagues have what to think about. According to data of the US Soufan Group analytical centre, by mid of 2016 about 6,000 people from European countries joined ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq. These are citizens of France (1,700), Germany (about 800), Great Britain (around 750), Belgium (450). About 40% of them are women. And only 20-30% have turned back home. Some hundreds of migrants from the Middle Eastern countries, who fought among terrorists and arrived to Europe under the guise of refugees, should be added to those numbers.

Aleksey Filatov, the FSB lieutenant colonel, Vice President of the International Anti-Terror Alfa Association, has told Pravda.Ru that the Russian law-enforcement bodies were aware of these groups.

Our special services have adapted to such situation, serious preventive work is being carried out against such subversive groups, the case is that they not only need to cross the border, but also live somewhere, gather, buy guns, explosive devices, prepare them. Work of our special forces is directed at prevention of these acts.

Unfortunately, our European colleagues do not have such experience.

In late 90s a lot of terror acts were carried out in the territory of Russia. I believe that our law-enforcement bodies and special services should not change their tactic. But, of course, one should try to neutralize these bandits in advance.

So, the main thing is not to get into panic, that is what terrorists hope for.

Human Trafficker Admits On Camera To Have Killed 400-500 Children

A human trafficker has gone on the record and confessed during a filmed interview to selling thousands of children into child sex slavery and admitted to killing hundreds that he was “unable to sell.”

British investigative journalist, Ross Kemp, tracked down and interviewed the child trafficker, who admits that he has lost count of how many young girls he has killed, but it’s “somewhere between 400 and 500.”

Kemp, an award-winning journalist who’s best known for his fearless documentary making, seems to be struggling with his emotions during the interview in which he’s sat face-to-face with the man as he admits to killing hundreds of kids.

Speaking about the encounter afterward, Mr. Kemp said he had to fight back the tears and was “shocked” and “horrified” by what the serial child killer told him, saying:

“Interviewing a guy who admits to killing 400 to 500 kids but doesn’t know exactly how many – that did make me cry.”

During the interview, in which Ross Kemp is sitting just inches away from the trafficker, “Mr. Kahn” reveals that he has “trafficked three or four thousand” young girls, “maybe more’.

Kemp then asks if it’s true that he has sold girls as young as nine for sex, to which the man replies, “I’ve sold girls who are 12.”

He then goes on to ask if he ever returns any of the children for any reason, to which he replies, “no”. When he asks if it’s true that he kills the children that he can’t sell, Kahn replies:

“If they try to run away, or if there’s any trouble selling them, they are killed and buried.”
