Sanctions don't work immediately. Most really take effect several months after they're put in place.


I heard that Iran and a couple other nations are going to provide whatever it is that the sanctions take away from North Korea.

They have billions from the black market. In an out. Don't underestimate what they all do. And who controls the flow? Countries sign the trues at the United Nations and deliver via backdoors. Making extra money.

NK seems prepared for another ICBM test

Referring to photographs posted on Aug. 11 on 38 North, a U.S. website specializing in North Korea analysis, Joseph Bermudez, a North Korea specialist, claimed that they could indicate preparations for a new test of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).


Well they sure as sugar aren't curbed by the extra sanctions are they?


The sanctions never have and never will work on Kim. They simply give him more time to develop his wmd's. On the other hand, they hurt the people of NK big time. Perhaps tptb are hoping the people of NK will hurt so much they will take out Kim themselves.

If so, I wouldn't hold my breath. Kim's got such a stranglehold on his people they can't even think of such a thing w/o risking arrest....if not worse.

Edit: Here's a video by Pastor JD Farag of Cavalry Chapel Kaneohe in Hawaii. He went into the North Korea threats, etc:

Yep just reading now!

NK recalls ambassadors



"North Korea seems to be hosting what appears to be a meeting of foreign diplomatic missions' chiefs after calling its ambassadors to major countries back to Pyongyang," a government official told Yonhap News Agency. The ongoing meeting reportedly includes Amb. Ji Jae-ryong, Amb. Ja Song-nam and Amb. Kim Hyong-jun, North Korea's top envoys to China, the United Nations and Russia, respectively.

For money.

The diplomats smuggle large amounts of gold into North Korea using their diplomatic status to avoid bag searches.

The sanctions have them short for something they need the money for, probably annual gift buying for his loyalists.

This is a prime move to send the impression that they're militarily serious while collecting money.

I don't see this as a big development.

Things keep getting worse. KCNA, which is NK's news agency, claimed that any war on the Korean Peninsula would go nuclear:


TextAny war that would break out on the Korean peninsula would become a nuclear conflict, a commentary in North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Monday.

In an article condemning the upcoming joint U.S.-ROK Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) military drill, which will begin on August 21, the KCNA report said the exercise would worsen already growing tensions on the Korean peninsula. “Even though no one wants it, the war can’t be stopped with any kind of force if flame sparks due to a minor incident,” the article said.

“The problem is that if the Second Korean War occurs, it will only be turned into a nuclear war.” Describing UFG as a “massive nuclear war practice” that was taking place “under the extremely deteriorating situation” on the peninsula, the editorial said the exercise risked provoking a war.

Yes obvious that North Korea has enough friends in the world to offset the effects of many sanctions.

It's being reported today that Kim Jong has not been seen in public in two weeks. I wonder what that could mean. Very unusual for him. See foxnews.com.

NK leader briefed on plans for missile firings near Guam

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been briefed on the military's plan to fire ballistic missiles near the U.S. territory of Guam, home to key American air and naval bases, Pyongyang's state media said Tuesday.
The North's leader "examined the plan for a long time" on Monday during his inspection of Strategic Force command, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
North Korea said last week that it will finalize by mid-August its detailed plan to fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles around Guam and report it to its leader for approval.


He appears deadly serious to go ahead with this soon - with eyes and ears on Washington's actions and words after.

The US are downplaying everything at the minute - I suppose it's a lot like the boy who cried wolf, but it's important for people to not underestimate the current world climate.

Their latest, that they're gonna "monitor the US a little more" is code for "fold."

That's good news regarding Kimmy backing down.
RE: www.reuters.com...

But our forces can't stay on high-alert in that area indefinitely. We need to also stand down a few notches, or kill the SOB, lest he keeps "toying" with us.

Just to clarify, they'll be back, I just don't see them launching any missiles toward Guam like they were threatening. Next week they'll probably be back to making vague threats about turning the US into a smoking cinder, which is beyond their capabilities.

Kim has dropped out of sight a few other times right before missile launches. Apologies as I can't find the link at the moment.

Good that he's taking a step back now though. I'd like to think Kim has realized launching over Japan and landing near Guam is a step too far. I imagine it will be something else here in a week or so though.

funny,I just read that he is moving missiles
news.au

yongyang’s state media has this morning reported President Kim Jong-un as “praising” his Strategic Force for drawing up a “careful” plan for a “power demonstration” to “envelope” Guam in fire.

Kim Jong's dad taunted the USA for decades. He's just picking up where papa left off. It will be interesting to see how close the USA will let him get to becoming fully capable of hitting the U.S. with an ICBM.
