North Korea has claimed its main nuclear complex is fully operational as the country remains prepared to launch a nuclear attack on the US “at any time”.
The country’s state-run news agency carried a statement claiming to be from the director of its Atomic Energy Institute saying the Yongbyon facility, which contains a uranium enrichment plant and nuclear reactor, had been upgraded.

Ironically, the previous post, originally derived from state-owned propaganda outlet Sputnik News, mentions that the submarine was Arctic-bound for anti-submarine drills. We’ll likely find out within the next few days where it actually winds up — likely in Syrian waters.
The world’s largest submarine, the Dmitri Donskoy (TK-208), Nato-coded Typhoon, has set sail for the Mediterranean and is destined for the Syrian coast, debkafile reports exclusively from its military and intelligence sources. Aboard the sub are 20 Bulava (NATO-code SS-N-30) intercontinental ballistic missiles with an estimated up to 200 nuclear warheads. Each missile, with a reported range of 10,000km, carries 6-10 MIRV nuclear warheads. Continue reading
If Russia invaded Lithuania, Latvia or Estonia — or all three — then that would effectively be the end of NATO.
Russia is prepared for nuclear war while the United States is not. NATO’s very own leadership has stated that it’s not ready to repel any sort of Russian aggression. Russia has nuclear bunkers all over the place and the United States has no new ones or accessible ones that anyone knows of. American nuclear missiles are in suicidal reduction while the remaining few still run on floppy disc technology, whereas Russia is modernizing its nuclear forces on a daily basis and has even committed to over 4,000 military drills in 2015 alone. You cannot keep a military jacked up on adrenaline this long without letting the pressure loose.
Because of this and with a leadership like Obama’s, it’s easy to see him caving in to a Russian invasion of the Baltic states by sitting idly.
If you’ve been paying attention in the least bit, and at least to this site, you will have seen these article references in past posts.
America is going into war unprepared and without God on its side as it has morally thrown God out the door in the homeland.
Russia has threatened to use “nuclear force” to defend its annexation of Crimea and warned that the “same conditions” that prompted it to take military action in Ukraine exist in the three Baltic states, all members of Nato.
According to notes made by an American at a meeting between Russian generals and US officials – and seen by The Times newspaper – Moscow threatened a “spectrum of responses from nuclear to non-military” if Nato moved more forces into Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Continue reading
The Obama administration is weighing options for sharp new cuts to the U.S. nuclear force, including a reduction of up to 80 percent in the number of deployed weapons, The Associated Press has learned.
Even the most modest option now under consideration would be an historic and politically bold disarmament step in a presidential election year, although the plan is in line with President Barack Obama’s 2009 pledge to pursue the elimination of nuclear weapons.
No final decision has been made, but the administration is considering at least three options for lower total numbers of deployed strategic nuclear weapons cutting to: 1,000 to 1,100; 700 to 800, and 300 to 400, according to a former government official and a congressional staffer. Both spoke on condition of anonymity in order to reveal internal administration deliberations.
The potential cuts would be from a current treaty limit of 1,550 deployed strategic warheads.
A level of 300 deployed strategic nuclear weapons would take the U.S. back to levels not seen since 1950 when the nation was ramping up production in an arms race with the Soviet Union. The U.S. numbers peaked at above 12,000 in the late 1980s and first dropped below 5,000 in 2003.
