    Top nuclear general says he would REFUSE Trump's order to drop a bomb on North Korea if he disagreed with the move and insists 'we're not stupid people'
    • Air Force General John Hyten said he wouldn't drop a nuclear bomb if he thought Trump's order was illegal
    • He said he's studied international war law, and that if it was an illegal order he wouldn't drop the bomb
    • Hyten said instead he'd work with Trump to come up with another solution
    • This comes amid mounting tensions with North Korea and Kim Jong Un

    WHY THE DEFECTING SOLDIER INDICATES THAT NORTH KOREA IS NOT READY FOR WAR WITH U.S?
    Defense Updates



    Published on Nov 21, 2017
    INTRODUCTION

    A North Korean soldier’s bold attempt to defect by crossing the heavily guarded border with South Korea galvanized attention this week.
    But perhaps more surprising was the disclosure by surgeons struggling to save his life of what they found while repairing his intestinal wounds: dozens of parasitic worms, some as long as 11 inches.

    In this video, Defense Updates analyzes why the defecting soldier indicates that North Korea is not ready for war with U.S?

    DEFECTION
    The North Korean soldier drove a jeep into the Joint Security Area, one of the most heavily guarded portions of the Demilitarized Zone, on Monday. He then ran across the border to defect to the South while fellow North Korean troops unleashed a hail of rifle and pistol shots trying to stop him.
    He collapsed about 55 yards south of the border, bleeding profusely. South Korean officers pulled him to safety, and a United States Black Hawk military helicopter rushed him to a hospital near Seoul, where he underwent a series of surgeries.

    WORMS

    This defection was the most dramatic defection from the North in years, making headlines in South Korea.
    But more startling news came from the doctors who were working to clean and patch up his dietary tract, which was torn by bullets
    “In my 20 years as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a medical textbook,” said Dr. Lee Cook-jong, a lead surgeon about the worms in the soldier.

    The discovery opened a window on the dire conditions in North Korea, including poor hygiene and nutrition. The news shocked many people in prosperous South Korea.
    Surgeons raced to save the North Korean soldier, whose name and rank have not been released, who sustained serious bullet wounds racing across the border while his own troops fired on him.
    “We have found dozens of fully grown parasitic worms in his damaged intestines,’’ said Dr. Lee Cook-jong, a lead surgeon. “It was a serious parasitic infection.”
    During a news briefing this week, Dr. Lee showed photographs of worms as long as 10 or 11 inches.

    Experts in parasitic worms were not surprised, however. They said that the finding was consistent with the broad sense of conditions in the isolated, impoverished North.
    Defectors to the South have cited the existence of parasites and abysmal nutrition. Because it lacks chemical fertilizers, North Korea still relies on human excrement to fertilize its fields, helping parasites to spread, the experts said.
    In a 2014 study, South Korean doctors checked a sample of 17 female defectors from North Korea and found 7 of them infected with parasitic worms.

    POOR CONDITION
    The soldier’s condition was particularly noteworthy because North Korean soldiers, especially those deployed near the border with South Korea, receive priority in food rationing. Yet, in addition to the parasitic worms, doctors found kernels of corn in his stomach.
    Its easy to understand that civilians will be in far worse condition.
    More than 30,000 North Koreans have fled to South Korea since a famine killed more than a million people in the North in the 1990s. Since then, international relief agencies have reported widespread malnutrition and stunted growth among many children in the North.
    The wounded soldier, who is believed to be in his late 20s, is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 132 pounds. In contrast, an average high school male senior in South Korea is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 154 pounds.

    CONCLUSION:

    Napoleon had said: “An army marches on its stomach”.
    This is true even today and with this state of affair North Korea will find it very hard to sustain a war effort against a well organized and well equipped rival.

    SOUTH KOREA HAS A SECRET WEAPON IF NORTH KOREA STARTS A WAR || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Nov 27, 2017
    Korea’s peninsular nature means that the ocean is never far away from residents of both countries. It also means that armies fighting on the peninsula, friendly or not, run lines of communication and supply that are constantly in danger of being severed from the sea. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, well aware that the invading Korean People’s Army was reliant on increasingly tenuous supply lines as it inched south, planned and oversaw a successful amphibious assault at the port of Inchon. The result was an abrupt reversal of fortune for a KPA on the brink of victory, with the shattered remnants of Kim Il-sung’s army racing north to avoid entrapment and annihilation.

    DEFECTING SOLDIER & N.KOREA'S HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES 귀순 병사를 통해 본 북한 인권

    On November 13, a North Korean soldier defected to South Korea across the Joint Security Area (JSA) at the risk of his own life. The solder suffered critical gunshot wounds, but his poor health was more shocking, providing another glimpse at life inside Kim Jong-un's despotic regime.

    This week on Peninsula24, we delve deeper into the reality of North Korea's human rights abuses and some possible solutions with Dr. Kim Chul-woo, a research fellow at the Korea Institute for Defence Analyses and Joanna Hosaniak, a human rights activist from Poland and Deputy Director of the Citizens' Alliance for North Korean Human Rights.

    North Korea tests LONGEST RANGE MISSILE that can reach most of USA
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Dec 1, 2017
    North Korea has fired a ballistic missile, which reportedly passed through Japan’s airspace near Hokkaido, triggering a public alert. It's believed to have fallen in the Pacific Ocean some 2,000 km east of the island.

    “North Korea fired an unidentified missile eastward from the vicinity of Pyongyang this morning,” the JCS said. The missile reached an altitude of 770 km and covered a distance of 3,700 km before falling into the ocean, according to South Korea's military.

    The South Korean and US militaries are analyzing details of the launch, Reuters reports.

    NHK Television urged residents in Hokkaido and Tohoku regions to take shelter as the projectile passed over Japanese airspace near Hokkaido at around 7.06am local time.

    The Japanese government will hold an emergency national security council session in response to Pyongyang's latest launch.

    Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary told reporters the missile was likely “the same as before,” referring to the August 29 launch over Japan. Yoshihide Suga condemned Pyongyang’s missile test “in the strongest words,” saying the missile passed over Hokkaido and fell into the Pacific Ocean, roughly 2,000 kilometers east of Arimori Cape.

    The Japanese government did not try to destroy the missile, according to reports. There's been no news of damage to aircraft and sailing vessels, or falling objects onto Japanese territory.

    Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, however, issued instructions to prepare for unforeseen circumstances by communicating prompt and accurate information to citizens.

    The North Korean launch comes shortly after South Korea staged a ballistic missile training drill in the Sea of Japan. The South Korean president has been notified and has immediately convened a National Security Council meeting.

    Just prior to the launch, Pyongyang warned that it was time to “annihilate” the US, to “sink” Japan and to “wipe out” South Korea following the adoption of a new UN Security Council sanctions resolution this week, in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test.

    The 15-member United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously approved a new round of sanctions Monday, targeting North Korea’s textile exports and its oil imports.

    On August 29, North Korea launched a ballistic missile over Northern Japan. The Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile is believed to have flown about 1,700 miles (2,735km) and reached a height of 341 miles (548km) before falling into the Pacific Ocean.

    After a number of last minute compromises, China and Russia supported the latest round of sanctions against Pyongyang Monday. While strongly condemning North Korea's actions, Moscow and Beijing continue to insist on the implementation of the so-called “double-freeze” proposal, which calls for Pyongyang to suspend its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in exchange for a halt to joint US-South Korea military drills.

    Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are rapidly mounting with North Korea defiantly continuing its missile and nuclear tests and the US, South Korean and Japanese militaries regularly holding drills in the region, accompanied by strong rhetoric by Washington. Pyongyang says the boosting of its missile and nuclear program is justified as its only means of defense should these military maneuvers escalate into a direct confrontation.
