US: China mobilizing troops, jets near North Korean border ~ link ~ Not a good sign.  I am of 'two minds' on this Korean thing: (Firstly) The nuts in North Korea are always threatening war/etc.  They have a new kid as leader that is following a script to make himself look tough and scary to his people.  They are not really going to do anything to get in a war they can't win; (Secondly) Am I just thinking like "I'm suppose to"?  Is this area, for whatever real reason, going to explode soon?  I do believe that it will form a 'war theater' to WWIII soon, but could it happen before the Middle East causes WWIII???  I was born during the Korean War ... will I die, or live through, the Second Korean War?   War...war...and more war...this is the time period that we are in, it would seem.   Stirling     

According to the officials, the PLA has stepped up military mobilization in the border region with North Korea since mid-March, including troop movements and warplane activity. 
China's navy also conducted live-firing naval drills by warships in the Yellow Sea that were set to end Monday near the Korean peninsula, in apparent support of North Korea, which was angered by ongoing U.S.-South Korean military drills that are set to continue throughout April. 
  USS Fitzgerald guided-missile destroyer moved to Korean waters ~ link ~ What if...North Korea actually has several nuclear weapons and has moved them into position near Hawaii and other key sites, even including mainland America???  Could they have really developed sufficient enriched weapons grade nuclear material???  Too many people think only in terms of traditional military delivery of nuclear weapons.  I remember having a discussion on this topic in a freshman-level political science class many years ago.  I made the statement that a Chevy pickup truck make a good delivery system in the right circumstances for a nuclear weapong...that you did not have to have a bomber or ICBM.  When many in the class laughed I said to the instructor, a retired full colonel in the US Army, "Colonel tell them".  And he agreed with me and explained that we had made very small nuclear devices including some for artillery shells.  That what mattered was not the delivery system but the warhead package.  A civilian ship, or airplane, or some other means could be used by the North Koreans to get a "nuclear warhead package" to just offshore America or even within America.  Once there, even a "small" nuclear blast could be horrific!   Stirling        

The shifting of the USS Fitzgerald was “a prudent move” meant to offer “greater missile defense options should that become necessary,” the unnamed official added.

On Sunday, the United States sent F-22 stealth fighter jets to South Korea as part of military exercises with the South Asian country.

On Saturday, Pyongyang announced that it is in a “state of war” with South Korea, warning that any provocation by Seoul and Washington will trigger an all-out nuclear war.

Pyongyang said henceforth “the North-South relations will be entering a state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly."

"The long-standing situation of the Korean Peninsula being neither at peace nor at war is finally over," said a statement issued jointly by the government, political parties and other organizations.

Pyongyang also warned that if Washington and Seoul launched a preemptive attack, the conflict "will not be limited to a local war, but develop into an all-out war, a nuclear war."

Last week, North Korea said that its military should be prepared to attack "all US military bases in the Asia-Pacific region, including the US mainland, Hawaii, and Guam" and South Korea. 

British tour operator in North Korea warned to stay away, 'outbreak of war hours away' ~ link ~ If war does break out on the Korean Peninsula it is apt to take millions of lives in the first day or two!!!   Stirling     

South Korea vows 'strong response' to attack from North Korea, as US boosts military presence off peninsula ~ link ~ South Korea has changed its rules of engagement ordering its troops to immediately respond to provocations from the North. Following the deployment of F-22 stealth fighters, the US has now sent a destroyer into Korean coastal waters.
On Monday, the South Korean president warned that the country’s military has been ordered to strike back without waiting for permission from Seoul in the event of any attack from the North.

"If there is any provocation against South Korea and its people, there should be a strong response in initial combat without any political considerations," Park Geun-hye, South Korean President, is cited as saying by Reuters. 

North Korea expands nuclear weapons program ~ link ~ On Sunday the Workers' Party Central Committee held a rare high-level meeting in which it described nuclear weapons as "the nation's life".
"The DPRK [North Korea]'s possession of nuclear weapons should be fixed by law and the nuclear armed forces should be expanded and beefed up qualitatively and quantitatively," a KCNA report on the meeting said.
South Korean threats heighten danger of military conflict ~ link ~ While Washington and Seoul portray their stance as purely defensive, the Yonhap News Agency reported that the South Korean military had unveiled a new contingency plan of “active deterrence” at yesterday’s briefing. The plan would allow the military “to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea if the North shows signs of an imminent nuclear or missile attack on the South,” Yonhap explained.
A presidential spokesman told Yonhap that Park had emphasised the need for “strong preparedness” in a special video call to the commander of the South Korean navy’s second fleet, which is based in the Yellow Sea, where disputed maritime boundaries have led to clashes in the past.

BP's Extinction Level Event ~ linkDespite the fact that dead dolphins and manatees are STILL showing up in droves along BOTH coasts of Florida, experts have been advised that they are NOT ALLOWED to discuss their findings due to the ongoing court cases involving BP. Since I am not beholden to BP nor to corrupt politicians nor to whomever may seek to silence the truth, I'll come right out and say it: BP, you're pure EVIL and you MUST and WILL be held accountable for your crimes in the Gulf of Mexico and the mass death that you are spreading around the world via corexit poisoning and the disastrous oil spill.

US citizens increasingly facing austerity dictatorship ~ link ~ Von Papen’s Prussian coup gets us uncomfortably close to what has just happened this past week in the great American city of Detroit, Michigan, well-known as the capital of the automobile industry but now especially hard hit by the world economic depression. The Republican governor, Rick Snyder, has just ousted the Mayor and City Council of Detroit, replacing them with a single outside overseer who will combine both executive and legislative functions to enforce austerity.

The lawyer Kevyn Orr took power as dictator of Detroit on Monday, March 25, 2013. He is expected to begin voiding labor contracts, imposing unilateral sacrifices on city workers, autocratically cutting the Detroit city budget, selling off city assets to Governor Snyder’s cronies and backers at bargain basement prices, and privatizing or simply terminating city services. Orr has signaled that one of his priorities will be to renege on Detroit’s pension and healthcare commitments to retired policemen, firemen, teachers, and other municipal workers. He does not rule out a haircut for the bondholders, but this must be considered window dressing unless and until it occurs.

Italy: Caretaker PM also sworn in as intern Foreign Minister ~ link ~ Italian caretaker premier Mario Monti was sworn in as temporary Foreign minister, after ex-minister Giulio Terzi stepped down over a furore due to the handling of two Italian marines charged with killing two fishermen on an anti-piracy mission off the coast of India last year. Terzi stunned parliament Tuesday by saying he was quitting because Monti sent the marines back to trial in India against his wishes.

Private Prisons and the Enslavement Society ~ link ~
“There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.”

Just imagine the hidden solution to the high unemployment economy is staring in our faces without even a hint of public reaction. The ultimate entrepreneurial partnership allows for corporate security firms to house government dissenters or rebellious non-conformers.
