    You can thank/blame Trump for that.

    Government officials said preparing for possible missile launches has become necessary as the US administration of President Donald Trump is stepping up pressure on the North.

    They said people who are outdoors should enter buildings or underground shopping arcades, and those who are indoors should sit down, away from windows.
    And those in Kim Jong Un's bunker should put their heads between their legs and kiss their ass goodbye!

    The average South Korean isn't worried; the average Japanese isn't worried, why should the US government station troops in those countries? Gangman Style boi was singing "Kill a fucking American" after a US military vehicle traffic accident killed a SK pedestrian; Okinawa is always complaining about US military bases. Some Japanese nigh clubs deny entry to Americans (I could personally care less, but still)

    Sure their governments want us there to fight their battles but its time for the US to wise up and admit the simple truth that most of our "Allies" don't really like us that much.

    Departing Japan and SK would take some wind out of Fat Boys sails

    Unfortunately some truth in that. As my grandma would say. They want the sweets but not the sours. There is always a quid pro quo but some are not willing to pay the bill for the service.
    The septics should just build a big base in Northern Australia. We've got plenty of unused land and it would help develop an otherwise undeveloped area. Shit, we could give em 10,000 square miles and not notice it. On top of that we reckon Sepos are alright.
    They spend a shitload of cash developing a base and infrastructure and we get the Northern development free of charge. Sounds like win win. We could also import some Thai sheilas and make an Oz Pattaya near Darwin somewhere. The whores would feel right at home. Chuck in a couple of Casinos and bingo, shitloads of our sepo mates spending shitloads of cash on leave in Oz.
    Government deficit fixed. Jeezus I should be the bloody treasurer. I think I might tweet the Big Don on this one.

    I am sure you could do a better job than the current treasurer. Don't see why your idea couldn't work. You need to run it by Trump, but soften it a bit first.

    Opps, hold on, that was Thailand in 1976

    Ok. We'll import a few "Miss Universe contestants" from Thailand. Will that be soft enough Rick?

    North Korea 'ready to sink' US aircraft carrier Vinson




    North Korea is "ready to sink" a US aircraft carrier heading for the peninsula, state media have said.

    A commentary in the Rodong Sinmun newspaper warned that the USS Carl Vinson could be sunk "with a single strike".

    A battle group headed by the Vinson is expected off the peninsula this week.
    It was despatched by President Donald Trump amid a warning that US "strategic patience" over the North's nuclear ambitions had come to an end.

    Tension also rose after a recent failed missile test by the North and a massive military parade showing off its latest hardware.

    Sunday's commentary in Rodong Sinmun, the mouthpiece of the ruling Workers' Party, followed a feature on leader Kim Jong-un's inspection of a pig farm.

    "Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a US nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike," the commentary read, saying that the attack on what it called a "gross animal" would be "an actual example to show our military's force".

    State newspaper Minju Joson echoed this, warning the army would "deal merciless destructive blows at the enemies so that they would not come back to life again".

    Rodong Sinmun was equally outspoken last week after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, on a tour of Asian nations, said the US was "reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang".

    Rodong Sinmun replied: "In the case of our super-mighty pre-emptive strike being launched, it will completely and immediately wipe out not only the US imperialists' invasion forces in South Korea and its surrounding areas but the US mainland and reduce them to ashes."

    The North also threatened to strike Australia with nuclear weapons if it remained an ally of the US.

    North Korea says its nuclear programme is defensive but it is trying to develop weapons small enough to put on ballistic missiles. There is no evidence yet it has done so or that it has missiles with the range to reach long-distance targets.

    The Vinson battle group was conducting joint exercises with the Japanese navy in the Philippine Sea on Sunday.

    The Yanks should fuck off back to their own back yard instead of causing trouble around the world. Let the Asians deal with their own issues.

    The F/A-18s on deck could be made into shooter bars with swivel stools outside the cockpit serving area...

    How about this for a ring-tone on your mobile.
    Morning in Pyongyang - song "Where Are You, Dear General" being played


    JUST when you thought North Korea couldn’t get any weirder, you learn this.

    The North Korean government wakes up the citizens of its capital, Pyongyang, every morning by playing a song throughout the city over loudspeakers. And the song is quite possibly the creepiest thing you’ll ever hear.
    Austrian tourist Helmut Uttenthaler has captured the eerie early morning wake up call, a song titled “Where Are You, Dear General”, and shared it online so we can all be frightened together.

    U.S. Air Force F-16 fighters at Max Thunder drill in South Korea - NBC News

    The North Koreans provoke the world ...

    or was it a provocation by the South Korean?
    Who should not get confused...
    Or somebody else making the provocation?
