Casus Beli: "We Believe North Korea WILL Try to Attack the U.S. as soon as he is able . . ." 

Post by Newsroom - Apr 27, 2017

Harry Binkley Harris, Jr. is an Admiral in the United States Navy who currently serves as the 24th Commander, United States Pacific Command.  At a news briefing yesterday, Admirial Harris stated:
 
Quote :
We believe North Korea will attempt to attack the United States as soon as it has the military capabilities.  
With every test, Kim grows closer to his goal which is using nuclear weapons on U.S. Cities.
 
In the language of Diplomacy, these words are a "Casus Beli"  which is the Latin phrase for "Cause for War."   These types of words are _never_ used lightly by any nation-state.  As such, the media inquired of Admiral Harris if a pre-emptive strike would be too dangerous considering South Korean casualties, Harris replied:
Quote :
“I would say what we’re faced with is a lot more Koreans and Japanese and Americans dying if North Korea achieves its nuclear aims and does what [Kim Jong-un] has said it’s going to do,” Harris said.  (end of briefing)

To anyone who has been following events on the Korean Peninsula, these are ominous developments.  Unless North Korea ceases its rhetoric about attacking the US, and returns to the negotiating table to denuclearize, war is now EXTREMELY LIKELY, perhaps beginning as early as June.
THe world already knows that the USS Carl Vinson and its strike group of Destroyers, Guided Missile Cruisers and at least one nuclear-powered missile submarine are in the region.  What few know is that the USS Nimitz and its strike group, have cleared their most-recent "Blue Water test" and are now officially deployable from southern California.  A trip to the Korean area would take 7 days for the Nimitz and her strike group.
What even fewer know is the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier and her strike group are currently in port in Yokosuka, Japan undergoing maintenance, scheduled to be finished in early June.
And what no one knew until this moment is the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier and her strike group are not far away from the Korean region!
Of course, the public already knows the US sent its latest F-35 to the US Marine Corps base in Japan.  But few know the US sent three B-2 Stealth Bombers from Whiteman Air Force Base on Monday to a "classified destination."
There is a very substantial military build-up by the U.S. taking place in relation to North Korea.  VERY Substantial!  The kind of build-up one might expect to see if the US is going to war.  
In this context, it should also be noted the US has called-for and conducted meetings with the UN Security Council over the "North Korean Issue", with members of the Security Council having also been invited to the White House for private talks.  The entire 100 member US Senate was briefed in the White House yesterday, and later yesterday the entire US House of Representatives was briefed in secret at the US Capital.
Last week, China deployed 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea and has also stepped-up its military aircraft maintenance to make-ready a very large number of military aircraft.  
Russia has deployed troops and tanks to its 11 mile border with North Korea, and yesterday, satellites picked-up the digging of trenches by the Russians along the border.  
Nations do not engage in these types of activities for nothing.   
There is a very strong probability that a hot war is coming . . . . perhaps this June.
Stay tuned.

8th Army Moves HQ Out of Seoul 

Post by Newsroom - Apr 27, 2017

 
The Eighth U.S. Army on Tuesday started moving its headquarters out of the old garrison in Seoul to Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, further away from the tense inter-Korean border.
The Eighth Army, which forms the core of the U.S. Forces Korea, held a symbolic ceremony at the Yongsan Garrison on Tuesday morning to take down a statue of Gen. Walton Walker (1899-1950) and ship it to Camp Humphreys in Pyeongtaek, the new USFK headquarters.
Lt. Gen. Thomas Vandal, the commanding general of the Eighth Army, hosted the ceremony with Korean and U.S. military leaders attending.
The relocation mainly aims to consolidate USFK bases scattered across Korea. It was agreed by the presidents of the two countries in 2003 but held up by endless delays, spiraling costs and other problems.
A 300-strong force started relocating in May last year and completed the process this March. Other key units hope to complete their relocation by late June, and the entire process is going to be complete in November.

 
Only Combined Forces Command headquarters, some support units and the Dragon Hill Lodge will remain at Yongsan until the end of this year.
The 2nd U.S. Infantry Division scattered in Uijeongbu and Dongducheon, Gyeonggi Province will relocate to Pyeongtaek late next year.
Once the relocation is complete, USFK troops, who have used outdated facilities in 91 locations nationwide, will be concentrated in Pyeongtaek and Osan in the central region and Daegu, Waegwan, and Gimcheon in the south.
The Pyeongtaek base and the relocation cost a total of about W16 trillion, of which W9 trillion is shouldered by Korea (US$1=W1,127). The Pyeongtaek base is the largest single overseas base operated by the U.S. military.
Seoul wants to turn the Yongsan Garrison into a park and other public facilities, but the base is heavily contaminated.

It is Decided: Military Confrontation with North Korea 

Post by Newsroom - Apr 27, 2017

 
President Trump has determined a course of action for responding to North Korea's continued nuclear missile development program, a senior administration official told reporters Wednesday, with U.S. military preparations "underway" for potential action.
"What the president has done is he's made a decision for us to pursue a certain course," the official told reporters in the White House briefing room, "and that course obviously has a number of options associated with it depending on how the situation develops in the future.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said Trump plans include "a broad range of options, obviously, across all elements of national power and multinational power in connection with North Korea."
"What you’ve seen is really an integrated effort to prioritize diplomatic and informational aspects of national power, but also what you’ll see soon is using the economic dimension of national power as well as the military preparations that are underway," the official said, barely 100 yards from where the entire U.S. Senate was receiving a briefing on the administration's strategy for North Korea.
Earlier this month the Pentagon ordered the USS Carl Vinson and its escort ships to the waters off the Korean Peninsula, and this week the U.S. military deployed the THAAD anti-ballistic missile system in South Korea to respond to North Korea's continued missile tests and nuclear development. But the comments from the official indicated that more dramatic action is being contemplated. Trump Administration officials have escalated their rhetoric against North Korea in recent weeks, emphatically maintaining the right to launch a unilateral strike against that country's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
Asked by a reporter to clarify what preparations are underway, the official declined to provide more information, saying, "I don't think we're going to describe those in any detail."
Among the options, the official said, the administration is considering placing North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism. The official said the economic component of the strategy involves further working to deprive North Korea of access goods needed to develop the programs in violation of UN sanctions.

Hawaii threatened by North Korea now, U.S. commander tells Congress

WASHINGTON
The Pentagon needs to consider deploying new anti-ballistic missile systems and a defensive radar to Hawaii to protect against a growing threat from North Korea, the top U.S. military officer in the Pacific told Congress on Wednesday.
“Kim Jong-Un is clearly in a position to threaten Hawaii today, in my opinion,” Adm. Harry Harris, the chief of U.S. Pacific Command, told the House Armed Services Committee. “I have suggested that we consider putting interceptors in Hawaii that . . . defend (it) directly, and that we look at a defensive Hawaii radar.”
The U.S. currently has anti-missile interceptors at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and in Fort Greely, Alaska.
Harris was repeatedly questioned by lawmakers from Hawaii on the threat posed to their state.

The current defense architecture “is sufficient to protect Hawaii today, but it can be overwhelmed,” he cautioned. “Somewhere, we would have to make a decision about which missiles to take out, and that’s a hard decision.”
