“N. Korea Evacuates Residents near Punggye-ri” … Attention to Possible Nuclear Test on 25th

N. Korea recently evacuated residents near Punggye-ri nuclear test site in North Hamkyung Province, and S. Korea/U.S. intelligence authorities are reportedly paying close attention to any related developments.

Intelligence sources said on Apr. 21th (today,) “Residents living near the nuclear test site have been evacuated to shelters by N. Korean authorities. It is quite likely that it is related to a nuclear test, based on their past behaviors.”

Additionally, they said, “More frequent flights to an airfield near the test site have been observed. Planes are suspected to be carrying scientists.”

Punggye-ri test site is where five nuclear tests have been conducted since 2006, and S. Korea/U.S. intelligence authorities are warning that N. Korea can conduct another nuclear test at any time.

Were citizens evacuated before the other tests?

If not, then possibly the Norks actually expect the next one to produce significant explosive yield — or to vent.

Keeping an eye on area seismic data…

Let’s just hope th test yields about 50 times on what they planned on. Hope the scientists were so scared of a fizzle and death they added some extra Red Bull.

Kim Jong-un may be quite capable of doing a James Cagney in “White Heat”.

“Made it, Ma! Top of the world!”

He could be THAT nuts.

I’m mulling over the possible scenario of someone dropping a “rod of God” on the site just before detonation.

Pros: intense damage to site disrupting nuke test activity, total destruction of evidence (deniability).

Cons: delivery may be detected & traceable, possible subsequent detonation of nuke to undesirable consequences.

Just a thought.

The North Korean problem will not be resolved by the United States negotiating with the Norks. The Norks get their news on the United States from CNN. They probably think that Senator Schuemer and his ilk will carry the water for
them, that they would be more aligned with the Norks than President Trump.

The only non-military option is for China to strong arm the little egomaniac and replace him.
