So, it's happening the U.N. Conference on Disarmament in Geneva. But it seems like they aren't looking for peace.



GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea accused the United States on Tuesday of seeking to aggravate the situation on the divided Korean peninsula by “deploying large nuclear assets” nearby and lay the ground for a possible pre-emptive strike against it.



In view of the nature and scale of U.S. military reinforcements, they are designed to make a pre-emptive strike against the DPRK,” North Korean diplomat Ju Yong Chol told the U.N.-sponsored Conference on Disarmament, referring to his country’s official name the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

U.S. officials including the defense secretary and the CIA director repeatedly talked about DPRK nuclear and missile threat to justify their argument for a military option and a new concept of a so-called ‘bloody nose’, a limited pre-emptive strike on the DPRK is under consideration within the U.S. administration,” Ju said.


Hmmm, I'm having some memories of the U.S. government doing this a few years ago...


Also, from Geneva conference:



U.S. warns on growing nuclear arsenals of China, Russia, North Korea


GENEVA (Reuters) - North Korea may be only months away from being able to strike the United States with a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile and its atomic weapons program must be shut down, a senior U.S. disarmament official said on Tuesday.



U.S. disarmament ambassador Robert Wood, addressing the U.N.-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, also warned that arsenals in China and Russia were expanding.

“Russia, China and North Korea are growing their stockpiles, increasing the prominence of nuclear weapons in their security strategies, and - in some cases - pursuing the development of new nuclear capabilities to threaten other peaceful nations,” he said.

North Korea “may now be only months away from the capability to strike the U.S. with nuclear-armed ballistic missiles”.



I'm not a doom porn fan, having a kid to raise and stuff, but I think we're really getting closer and closer to a global meltdown. Economic or military.

Any thoughts ATS?

Well let me just say, no ****.
From everyone wirh half a brain in the entire world.

Of course a limited first strike is being considered. Even if it isnt used youd have to be derelict of duty not to have one planned just in case.

I think they should take out the NK, strategically targeting the leaders so as to spare the people if at all possible. And I think China should help.

I think this would HELP to stabilize the world and prevent global meltdown.

the US doesn't want anyone else to develop nukes whilst the POTUS just removed a previous EO restricting nukes development. iirc, the us plans to up its arsenal, the only power to recklessly use nukes before exhausting all options, is going to up its nuke armament..

under what pretenses is the US going to preemptively attack another country when they have never ever done anything to the US?
the rules if war must have changed...

Limited strikes on any part of North Korea = Full Scale War. Why? North Korea will assume it was the U.S. that struck first...

War is inevitable just by the design of the geopolitical settings of today. I wish people would realize this truth and stop pretending peace is the only way. War is a part of human nature. Accept it and pull the trigger.

Kim needs to go one way or the other. We know just as much that leaving Kim Jong Fat to his own devices alone would mean war eventually.

They are forbidden a nuclear war. Neither God nor the Devil will permit it.

I have no fear of nuclear war. They are using it to control us all. It suits Lil Kim to control his sheeple and it suits the West to control their sheeple. It suits Putin to control his sheepskies.

Laugh at it for the dabacle it is. It is MAD. It is entirely insane and shows humanity up for the clown it is. It is the red nose on the icing of the cake for me, like a sweet cherry proving my point.

Honk, honk, humanity.

Trumpet the Strumpet can't nuke them or he will be nuked for sure. Nobody can nuke anybody. The moment anyone nukes anybody everybody gets nuked. Everybody must get nuked.

Listen to Bob tell you in this song about atomic energy:

"Have no fear for atomic energy 'cause none of them can stop the time".



Don't let them win and make you scared. Try and have some fun with each other in this life. There is so much nice stuff to do still: Make love, listen to music, smoke some nice Ms.Jane and fight to make the world better any way that is in your power.

If you try it will work. It is just that you have lost confidence and think you are powerless. I fight them every day. Every day here in my mind it is nuclear attack, full on Armageddon time.

Back to you in the studio Nick Redfern...



You too may have seen this growing and disturbing assumption/trend that, somehow, a nuclear war – involving the major powers of this planet – can somehow be won. Let’s be clear on the matter: no-one can win a nuclear war.


Mysterious Universe

I once read a book-The doomsday handbook which pretty much stated if a nuclear tantrum between India and Pakistan were to take place only 100 nukes would be enough to wipe out crops across the globe, and across the globe there are more than twenty thousand nukes.

If push comes to shove, it's goodnight sweetheart.

That's what you do when you feel like you're the police of the world.

The main.problem is somehow the U.S. government has managed to convince itself and a large portion of it's population that they are the good guys.

Everything the us does.no.matter the human cost or destruction it causes is good.

It's mass delusion and I don't think there is any going back from this mindset.

You can't tell someone what they are doing is wrong if you yourself do the very same things.

Pretty sure the United States military is considering any and all strategic options for every potential enemy on the planet. That's what they do.

Yeah, they probably need to do something about it. Just because US officials have lied about WMD's before doesn't mean North Korea can't have them. It can help stabilize but hopefully they'll have a good plan for what to do with the place after the war. That probably means giving China control, if you ask China at least. We aren't getting the full picture anyway, because China and Russia have their stakes in this. I think there are secret talks to find a solution. Everyone is looking to expand their influence, but not at the cost of nuclear war.

I know right what ever happened to super assassins who will risk their lives to save billions!
One group of super assassins , with a super awesome stealth sniper rifle infiltrates the DPRK and waits until

but of course there is always someone who wants to push the big red button
OH wait , would it be immoral to do a crowd fund for a super assassin to take out evil people !

how much would it cost to hire an international assassin to kill various evil people ?

The Japanese weren't Christian though.

Also, the Manhattan project was very secret. People were strictly told not to pray about it.

If it was that easy it would have been done already. If no one here including myself has ever attended war college, it would be best not to play armchair general.

The only general I listen to is Sec Def Mattis.

Why , we arent dropping bombs for real , we can speculate all we like !

war is fought by normal men and women , not scientists , so why wouldnt we have an opinion?
The generals arent out there getting shot at , sure they maybe did once in their life time
but its the normal civilians getting thrown in for patriotism or conscription that are doing the fighting
