Washington State senator, Mark Miloscia, says the State must prepare for imminent attack as the threats from N. Korea stiffen.
Senator Mark Miloscia has warned that Washington must prepare for imminent attack by North Korea
“In the Cuban Missile Crisis we had the institution of the red phone, and various ways of contacting each other militarily to make sure we don’t escalate.
“None of that exists with North Korea. With the current regime, we don’t even have anything close to the controls over the relationships we had with the Soviet Politburo and its leaders.
“And I don’t think they have any sort of rational contact with any of their neighbours that we can deal with… Given that, we hope for the best but we have to plan for the worst.”
“We should have some sort of pre-planned response ready,” he said. “Because the threat is growing and the threat is starting to become imminent. And not to do so would be a dereliction of duty.”
Could he be overreaching comparing these times with the Cold War?
The U.N have imposed fresh sanctions on North Korea.

These sanctions follow N. Korea’s recent nuclear missile test (the most successful of them all) and its ballistic missile test over Japan.
The U.N banned the sale of natural gas to N. Korea and also banned the sale of N. Korean textiles (the country’s second biggest export).
The U.N refused to place the extreme sanction suggested by Trump’s administration which involved cutting crude oil to the country totally.
Before these fresh sanctions, North Korea vowed to make the United States pay a heavy price if the U.N approves Washington’s brutal sanctions.
Though these fresh sanctions don’t totally cut N. Korea off, it remains to be seen how N. Korea will react.
It appears though that the sanctions on N. Korea are becoming more grievous, but whether it will stop its nuclear missile tests remains unknown.
It’s rare, but yes, the North Korean dictator does have a friend in the person of retired basketballer, Dennis Rodman.
Kim Jong Un happens to have fallen in love with Chicago Bulls during the time Rodman was there. In fact, Rodman has visited N. Korea a couple of times. Such love.
“Every time I see him, he’s always calm, he’s always smiling, especially when he’s with family,” Rodman told Good Morning Britain
Note that this is the same Kim Jong Un that executed his uncle by firing squad and most probably had his stepbrother poisoned and killed.
“To me, in person, without all the things that have gone on on TV and potentially a war or something like that, if you see him just sit at a table, he’s just like everybody else. He’s always laughing, smiling, talking to his people, that’s it.”
Is he talking about Kim Jong Un’s twin?
North Korea is ever so itchy to light another monster rocket into the skies. And moreso this time as they celebrate their founding day on Saturday.
But what if one of these incessant tests go wrong?
Recently, North Korea’s missile flew over Japan, a move that drew international attention once again over N. Korea’s motives. Japan most definitely didn’t find it funny.
Well, happy birthday, N. Korea, and congrats, Kim Jong-un.
Who fires these things anymore?

Short-range, long-range, medium-range… what is North Korea’s obsession with ballistic missiles?
These guys keep testing these things. They most recently fired 3 short-range ballistic missiles, 2 failed, and 1 eventually landed in the East Sea.
But really, what’s N Korea’s obsession with projectiles? Or are they just seeking attention from the U.S and the rest of the world? Or could they be preparing for war? Or could it all be political, power tug-of-war?
Now N Korea’s reputed is built on these warheads (crazy countries with their crazy profiles). Makes me wonder what Nigeria’s profile is.
Well, Nigeria is a beautiful country, still struggling economically even though we have oil. Our bane is corruption and political melodrama, there’s just too much drama in the political sphere. But there’s hope for Nigeria because Nigerians are relentless and hungry for progress.
Is there as much hope for North Korea? Are they relentlessly seeking war? Would they be another wasteland devoured by the big dogs?
