North Korea is still making nukes, and
the Trump admin is taking a harder line

NBC News, by Courtney Kube, Carol E. Lee

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/11/2018 12:23:55 AM

Washington - As President Donald Trump issues a steady stream of praise for Kim Jong Un in interviews and on Twitter, a steady stream of evidence that North Korea is still making nuclear weapons has pushed his administration to take a much more aggressive stance toward Pyongyang. (Snip) During the three months since the historic Singapore summit and Trump´s proclamation that North Korea intends to denuclearize, North Korea has built structures to obscure the entrance to at least one warhead storage facility, according to the officials. The U.S. has also observed North Korean workers moving warheads out of the facility,

Comments:
Inspite of the "good will" shown before the world between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, it would be ludicrous to believe that North Korea isn´t trying to complete some part of their nuclear and missile program before going to meetings with US. As other recent articles have shown, the Norks and Iran have visited each other.

Paris - French Polynesian President Edouard Fritch has said the leaders of the French collectivity of islands in the South Pacific lied to the population for three decades over the dangers of nuclear testing. From 1960 to 1996, France carried out 193 nuclear tests in French Polynesia. The images, such as a mushroom cloud over the Mururoa atoll, provoked international protests. "I´m not surprised that I´ve been called a liar for 30 years. We lied to this population that the tests were clean. We lied," Fritch told officials in the local assembly Thursday in footage broadcast by Tahiti Nui Television. France´s overseas ministry declined

Port Moresby, The United States will not back down from its trade dispute with China, and might even double its tariffs, unless Beijing bows to U.S. demands, Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday. In a bluntly worded speech at an Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in Papua New Guinea, Pence threw down the gauntlet to China on trade and security in the region. "We have taken decisive action to address our imbalance with China," Pence declared. "We put tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, and we could more than double that number." "The United States, though, will not change course until

Washington - Mira Ricardel Fired: An hour after Melania Trump called for the sacking of deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel, the White House aide has been fired. The Wall Street Journal reports she was escorted out of the White House minutes ago. Only two hours before her dismissal, she attended a White House Diwali ceremony with Trump. (Tweet) (Snip) The reason that Melania Trump wants top national security aide Mira Ricardel fired apparently doesn’t have anything to do with policy. Instead, it is about a dispute over plane seating when the first lady visited Africa last month. Reuters has fleshed out some of

Gaza/Jerusalem - Palestinian militant groups in Gaza agreed on Tuesday to halt cross-border attacks immediately if Israel did the same, Palestinian officials said, after the most serious exchanges of aerial fire since a 2014 war. Since Monday, Israeli air strikes have killed seven Palestinians, at least five of them militants. Rocket attacks from Gaza killed a Palestinian man in Israel. "(Palestinian) factions have agreed to hold fire on condition Israel abides by this," said a Palestinian official familiar with Egyptian truce efforts. Another Palestinian official, asked when a ceasefire might start, said: "Immediately, should Israel reciprocate."

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has threatened to “squeeze” Iran’s economy “until the pips squeak,” just one week after Washington imposed a new round of crippling sanctions billed as the “toughest ever.” Speaking ahead of the ASEAN-US summit in Singapore, Bolton said that the Iranian government is already under “real pressure” and that the US would “significantly increase” the enforcement of sanctions. Bolton said there was “no doubt” that Iran has already begun looking for ways to evade sanctions, which hit the country’s oil, financial, shipping, nuclear and aviation industries. He added that Tehran

The Political-Security Cabinet concluded a seven-hour-long meeting on the security situation and the ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip Tuesday. The ministers discussed the various options for responding to the massive rocket fire carried out by the terrorist organizations from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory over the past 24 hours. Over 400 rockets have been fired at Israel since Monday afternoon. However, a decision to embark on a large-scale military operation in the Gaza Strip is unlikely.
