How impressive, all those shiny new self-propelled artillery pieces lined up on beach. Yes sir. Just lined right up out there in nice straight lines. On the beach.
Out in the open.


Ok, somebody might have gone just a tad overboard with the photoshop bomb, just a little....


Worst than the Iranians?

Every year the US and ROK conducts these war games, and every year the DPRK threatens some variation of "merciless strikes."

Ho, hum.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-2 ... ames-begin

Residents of Japanese coastal towns are holding evacuation drills as North Korea warned Sunday that the upcoming US-South Korea military exercises are "reckless behavior driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war."

Nearly 130 people took part in the drill in Kotoura, which has a population of 18,000, a town official said. Reuters reports that for 10 minutes, people ducked down covering their heads with their arms. Many of those taking part said they were worried. North Korea has in the past threatened to attack Japan, a staunch U.S. ally and host to U.S. military bases.

As sirens blared from speakers in the town of Kotoura, children playing soccer outside ran to take shelter in a school, along with their parents and their team coach.

"I've been concerned every day that something might fall or a missile could fall in an unexpected place due to North Korea's missile capabilities," said the coach, Akira Hamakawa, 38.

"...Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, the commander of American troops in South Korea, gave a blunt assessment of the tense situation.

“Self-restraint, which is a choice, is all that separates armistice and war,” Brooks told the New York Times in reference to the Korean War, which ended in a ceasefire rather than a peace treaty in 1953.

“As this alliance missile live-fire shows, we are able to change our choice when so ordered by our alliance national leaders," said Brooks, adding that it "would be a grave mistake for anyone to believe anything to the contrary.”

From the other side, a guy named Noh had this to say (https://mronline.org/2017/08/16/war-wit ... prevented/)

The current threats by the current president, although a little more off-the-cuff and colorful than usual, are nothing new for the North Koreans. For example, on two occasions, Colin Powell blithely threatened to turn North Korea into a charcoal briquette—a chilling statement to a country that for three years had 50,000 gallons of Napalm dropped on it daily. (claims are not fact)

The North Koreans, having lived through, not merely the threat of Armageddon, but the experience of it, are highly unlikely to let go of nuclear weapons as a deterrent."

And so, the standoff continues.

Interesting article. Thanks TacAir!

NK popped a nuke last night. Most powerful to date.
USGS recording of it. https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us2000aert#executive

NKs ability to advance technologically in this field is strangely rapid.

Update: ROK says the earthquake was natural, not caused by nuclear test.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09 ... lear-test/

Another DPRK nuclear test? 3.4 earthquake caused by "suspected explosion" detected near North Korea nuclear testing area.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/09/e ... 18971.html

China's earthquake administration said on Saturday it had detected a magnitude 3.4 earthquake in North Korea that was a "suspected explosion".

The administration said in a statement on its website that the earthquake, which occurred around 08:30 GMT, was recorded a depth of zero kilometres.

Previous quakes from North Korea have indicated nuclear tests by the state, the most recent earlier this month. The tremor was centred near North Korea's nuclear test site.

Nuclear proliferation watchdog CTBTO said it was examining what it called "unusual seismic activity" in North Korea.

It said that the activity took place around 50km from prior tests by Pyongyang.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-41371867

A magnitude 3.4 earthquake has been detected in North Korea.

The earthquake occurred about 50km (31 miles) from a nuclear test site, monitors say. Previous quakes were caused by weapon tests.

Chinese seismologists said it was a "suspected explosion" but South Korea says that it could be a natural quake not caused by a nuclear test.

The US Geological Survey (USGS), meanwhile, said it could not yet make a judgment as to the cause.

North Korea carried out a massive nuclear test on 3 September which was widely condemned at the UN.
