I doubt the story is true.
North Korea has a handful of nukes with no delivery system.
I doubt war is about to start.
Classic North Korea rhetoric.
North Korea might even nuke its own and say we did it. Their missiles are dysfunctional.
Indeed, if history is any guide, there’s one time of the year America needs to be worried about North Korea turning its anger into action — and it’s right now [i.e., April].
April 15 is the anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-sung, the dictator who founded the nation [DPRK] and is the late grandfather of current leader Kim Jong-un.
on a Tuesday morning in April , a US Lockheed EC-121 propeller driven spy plane, known by its radio call of Deep Sea 129, took off from a base in eastern Japan.

That's the real bitch of it. No matter who says who did what, we can't trust anyone.

Someone asked the page before
"how did we allow NK to get nukes".. and i'd like to highlight a problem.
No one believed they'd have the ability to develop/aquire a nuke, and they did
then no one believed they could make it work.. and they did
and now no one believes they can target those nukes..... or use them for war
See the problem ?
Never say never.

if we keep provoking NK, then they retaliate. not hard to figure out. why should they let another country tell them what to do or face military actions?

The story is in the Korean news too mengnews.joins.com...
Kim Jong-un orders 600,000 out of Pyongyang Apr 12,2017 North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently ordered the deportation of nearly 600,000 Pyongyang residents to the suburbs, a local source told the JoongAng Ilbo Monday. The deportation represents one-fourth of Pyongyang’s current population of 2.6 million. It is not known when they will be forced to move or to where.

Pretty sure we're still technically at war with NK (Since 1953).
An armistice was signed, but no declaration of Peace.
Actually, the US went to war under a UN Security Council resolution...

# is about to get scary.. satelite images show massive movements on the nuclear test site.. I have no clue how to link to articles but this is copied from the page I was just reading;
"According to South Korean media, residents in the kingdom have said goodbye to each other, sparking concerns the tyrannical leader could be about to act after months of nuclear weapon testing.
Foreign reporters have been told to prepare for a “big and important event" on North Korea's biggest national celebration, called ‘Day of the Sun’."
So this is more or less the Korean version of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
