Alaska, Hawaii, California, Oregon and Washington are quietly being told to make emergency preparations in case of attack by North Korea as the situation between the North And South Korea took a decidedly dangerous turn this morning when the South Korean Chiefs of Staff issued a terse warning.
“If the North continues to make provocations despite the stern warnings made by our military, it is inevitable for us to roll out a strict response that may lead to the destruction of the Pyongyang regime,” – South Korean Chiefs Of Staff statement this morning.
Observers were quick to notice the tone of this statement and found it to be very unusual. A spokesman from the Korean Reunification Project told SuperStation95 “its unusual for them as they normally are very guarded in their words.”
Afterwards, the United States issued a statement saying “North Korea will face a “stronger and more grave” response if it makes yet additional provocations in defiance of the international community.”
One of the largest Amphibious Assault Drills ever staged on the Korean Peninsula in modern times is now in progress, with troops simulating a beach invasion of North Korea.
The troops involved in the “twin dragon” drill are detailed below. Please note, that these are purely the forces involved in the landings at Pohang. This number does not include the many thousands involved in other simultaneous exercises right now in South Korea, with Operations “Resolve” and “Foal Eagle.”
55 U.S. marine aircraft
30 U.S. and South Korean ships, including the USS Bonhomme Richard and USS Boxer, which carry AV-8B Harrier attack jets and V-22 Osprey aircraft.
9,200 US Marines,
3,100 U.S. Navy sailors,
4,500 Republic of Korea Marine Corps,
3,000 Republic of Korea Navy members,
100 Australian Army soldiers
60 Royal New Zealand Army
In fact, the Pentagon confirmed this morning that 320,000 South Korean and US troops are now involved in the overall exercises taking place!
North Korea Will Either Collapse or Go to War
North Korea has been under various sets of economic sanctions for decades over its nuclear weapons development and missile programs.
Despite the sanctions, North Korea’s ally, China, allowed certain things to get through, and certain financial transactions to take place nonetheless. It was done with a wink and a nod.
After North Korea made a surprise detonation of another nuclear device in January (without warning China) and then launched another missile to put some type of “satellite” into space in February, China joined the rest of the world in honoring prior UN Sanctions. They even went so far as to vote in favor of very harsh NEW sanctions imposed by the UN earlier this month.
Those new sanctions are having a severe effect upon North Korea, which has found itself unable to engage in most foreign trade and, worse, unable to engage in financial transactions! Cutting-off access to finances wipes out North Korea’s access to hard cash, so they are now going broke.
Among the most serious of the new sanctions is the ban on importation of aviation fuel. Without aviation fuel coming into the country,North Korea grows weaker as each day passes. In order to have a civilian air transport system, the government must fly aircraft. Each time they do, it draws down on the supply of aviation fuel they have, leaving less for military use.
Unable to engage in foreign trade, unable to get hard cash from foreign transactions, and unable to fuel its aircraft, the North Korean regime of Kim Jung Un absolutely, positively, without any doubt whatsoever, will collapse. There is no way to avoid it.
It is now believed North Korea will choose to go to war rather than be humiliated into compliance with UN demands it cease its nuclear and missile programs. With the new sanctions slowly draining the country’s ability to exist, war will likely come soon.
North Korea has made repeated threats within the past month to “turn the United States into a sea of fire” and ordered its nuclear weapons to be “made ready for use at a moments notice.”
North Korea also successfully launched a satellite into space in February and that launch proves the North Koreans can make nuclear strikes anywhere in in red-highlighted areas of the map below:
The US states of Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon and California on the west coast are at risk if the North decides to attack. Their missiles can reach those states, but the accuracy of the missiles is believed to be almost zero.
So if the North launches against the US, and if US missile interceptors based in Fort Greeley Alaska fail to intercept it, then a nuclear warhead atop one of those missiles could pretty much end up anywhere in the read area shown above! To a lesser extent, that area also includes the states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota, part of Nevada, North and South Dakota.
FEMA Deploys Supplies
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has begun quietly pre-positioning vast supplies in their Regions 8, 9 and 10 as shown in blue, below:
Whether an attack is launched or not, one thing is clear: developments on the Korean Peninsula are taking place very fast and if war comes, it will break-out with blazing speed, catching many in the public, completely off-guard.
