US deploys drones, B-1s and "doomsday planes" near North Korea

North Korea: US Deploys Spy Plane To Japan
The US brings forwards its drone deployment to Japan after North Korea moves two missiles on mobile launchers to its east coast.

Tensions remain high on the Korean Peninsula amid reports the US has deployed an unmanned spy plane to Japan to boost its surveillance after North Korea readied missile launchers on its east coast.

The Global Hawk will be stationed at the US airbase in Misawa, northern Japan, in the first ever deployment of the aircraft in the country, the Sankei Shimbun reported, quoting government sources.

The US military informed Japan last month about plans to deploy the plane between June and September but has brought the date forward.

It comes after North Korea warned foreign diplomats they may not be safe in the country if war breaks out.

U.S. secretly deploys B-1 strategic bombers, E-6 "doomsday" planes near North Korea

First the US fanfared the placement of two F-22 Raptors in the Osan airbase of South Korea. Then it demonstratively launched a B-2 stealth bomber on a training mission over a South Korean gunnery range. Then it deployed an anti-ballistic missile defense system to Guam and positioned two guided-missile destroyers in the waters near Korea. And now, courtesy of the Aviationist, we learn that the Pentagon has escalated once more in an ongoing cat and mouse game with North Korea, of who blinks first, and dispatched several B-1 ("Bone") Lancer strategic long-range bombers to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.

What is different this time, however, is that unlike the previous very public and widely trumpeted reciprocal escalation steps, this particular deployment has been kept secret from the public (at least the broader public), "a fact that could be the sign that the U.S. is not only making symbolic moves (as the above mentioned ones), but it is preparing for the worst scenario: an attack on North Korea."

How has the Aviationist learned this?

downvote me pacifist

forget iran, they don't worry me. they may be dangerous but at least they are not crazy.
we should issue letters of marque and reprisal against kim jong un and his aunty and the top generals and get it over with. i'm tired of this little punk threatening to nuke us and setting off missiles on the 4th of july to intimidate us. just send in a seal team and/or a small sniper squad, drones, whatever, enough is enough. i think if we take out the leadership things will change there without a long drawn out war. the nk people will rise up and finish the job.

when someone continually threatens to nuke us we have to do something.
i'm not willing to wait till they actually carryout their threats.

I'm no fan of N. Korea but..

They are subject to all kinds of sanctions and have nuclear armed
overwhelming military force on their doorstep. Everyone else in
the neighborhood has nukes or is backed by someone that does,
but the US is saying they can't.

Japan has an unstated agenda of not wanting peace with N. Korea
because it gives them a convenient enemy but also because if N. Korea
*doesn't* collapse they would have to conclude a separate peace treaty
with them taking into account Japan's conduct when it occupied the
country for forty years to ever have normal relations.

Thanks to the US covering for major war criminals, lying to their allies
and threatening former Japanese-held POW's, Japan got off incredibly
lightly compared to Germany in postwar peace treaties. (After
the war, ordinary Japanese people were broke - but the elite
had systematically looted the countries they occupied and had
accumulated vast amounts of gold and other loot)

But no treaty has been negotiated with N. Korea - if they did then
all of the BS about Japan being broke and all of the US' lies and
duplicity might be exposed - whereas if North Korea were just to
collapse and be absorbed into South Korea nothing would be said
and Japan would probably get out of paying anything.

So, US and Japanese policy has for years been basically to try and force
the collapse of North Korea - not exactly a formula for making them
feel all warm and fuzzy about our intentions.

Japanese war loot:


Maybe You Should Watch This

before beating war drums



interesting history lesson but

i've never been a big fan of Steve Pieczenik or steve quayle or half of what webster tarpley says. from time to time alex has on some real crackpots that spew misinformation mixed with facts.

the fact is that nk wants to nuke us and/or set off a miniaturized emp weapon which would cause civil unrest and collapse the world economy. pieczenik need to lay off the aspartame imo.

nk: we are going to nuke you
us: that's not a good idea and would end badly for your people
nk: so what, we are going to nuke you
us: come on man be reasonable let's talk
nk: no, we are going to nuke you
us: look, we don't want any trouble
nk: we are going to nuke you, prepare

Send in assassins, and we might lose everything anyway.

Also, it kinda shows that you have not been paying any attention to what Ron Paul's said at all. You haven't learned a thing, have you?

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

i'm not a pacifist

how long do you wait? if someone threatens to kill you over and over and over again at some point you're gonna have to do something. especially if you think the person really is crazy and will try to kill you and destroy the whole world if he could.
maybe if you lived in the place he has repeatedly threatened to nuke you might feel a bit differently, just saying.
north Korea is bad news man. i don't like brutal bully dictators that threaten my life, sorry.

There is significant evidence to suggest

When North Korea talks about launching a pre-emptive attack on the United States, they may be talking about the base in Okinawa?

Notice, the US and Japan, in the midst of the flare up in N. Korea, announced they are developing plans to give the base back to Japan.

Japan pledged to shoot down any missile entering its airspace.

N. Korea has possibly started to believe its own crazy propaganda, much like in the Nazi Party... they may believe the U.S. would not respond to an attack because of retaliation from China/Russia. However, we all know the US would obliterate North Korea no matter who was president.


Obliterating N. Korea

doesn't mean the US "wins".

Since they could decimate Seoul with conventional weapons,
if N. Korea also got Okinawa and Tokyo the economy would
tank and the US credibility about protecting anyone would
drop to somewhere near zero.

Sound like a victory to you?

The N. Koreans aren't the only ones we have to worry about
believing their own propaganda...

Kim believes own "crazy propaganda"?

For several years now, joint US and South Korea military exercises have used "regime change" scenarios. Given our own treacherous history, from 1953 Iran to Iraq and Libya, Kim would be a fool if he were NOT planning to do as much damage to us forces in a "first strike," which could come as early as late afternoon today. Kim will very possibly use one of those "missing" nuclear-capable missiles against Guam and the other against Okinawa, taking out a huge amount of our war-making capability in that theater, as I believe the US deployment of drones, B-1s and "doomsday planes" to the area indicates that we planning just such an operation and are prepared for thermonuclear war to "end the threat from North Korea". WHO is crazier?

I am well fed

And am not forced to cry when the great orator speaks. Thus, North Korea is crazier. Plus, North Korea is the first nation to test detonate a nuclear weapon since Pakistan in 1998. The US ended all nuclear testing Under George Bush I.

So... North Korea is playing mind tricks with the South and the US like the whole "pre-emptive nuclear attack" is exactly the same as the Bush Doctrine outlined. Remember, "nothing is off the table" is the part of the Bush doctrine that has stayed. But, fortunately, Obama has swayed away from preventative war. This makes him look weak, compared to North Korea, as opposed to his predecessor.

The reality is, North Korea is an attention whore. If North Korea dared to strike any US military installation, Pyongyang would be a sheet of glass within minutes. While they are dealing with a 5-10 kiloton yield, we still have 50-150 megaton bombs in the arsenal. We could vaporize the entire northern peninsula with one bomb, or surgically destroy North Korea C&C with several strategic low yield weapons.

Since North Korea declared the armistice was "over", etc, if their propaganda is so correct, why haven't our troops just jumped right over the DMZ into North Korea? The reaity is the United States is China's best customer and North Korea is what we call an attention whore. They want the sanctions lifted. It would be like if Mexico was doing this and the US did nothing - what an outrage their would be. Let's face it all their equipment is coming from China to project a sphere of influence. Too bad it will come back to bite China in the ass when these people revolt due to their leader being a 20-something nutcase who likes Michael Jordan and Dennis Rodman. What the hell is going on in that country?

You should really watch more Chinese historical movies.

They are entertaining and beat the hell out of reading "The Art of War". Do you REALLY believe the propaganda coming out of our media that China and, perhaps, Russia are behind all this? We three duked it out during the Cold War using surrogates. I believe that is EXACTLY what is happening right now. Watch the videos I have linked and compare statements made in the videos to the actual quotes.

Alex Jones, notwithstanding, the US media is actually DOWNPLAYING the danger here. Russia is watching as its last two allies in the Mideast, Syria and Iran, are either being destroyed are about to be by Pro-Zionist forces. They see the US and South Korea playing "regime change war games" and ratcheting the economic screws on North Korea and Iran. The last things Russia and China want are a US-occupied North Korea or an Israeli-occupied Iran. Also, follow the money. BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) plan to take down the IMF, the banksters and the U.S. dollar. Just last week, China made a HUGE inroad with its agreement with Australia to trade with Aussie dollars. Remember, too, that Max Keiser and Gerald Celente are regular contributors to RUSSIA TODAY. While this is not proof, it is highly indicative that Russia believes the banksters plan to start World War III to consolidate their thievery and police state control over the West. India should clearly believe that the US controls Pakistan's nukes; after all, what nuclear country would let the US kill her citizens with drones? Thus, India also has a stake in bringing down the West, particularly the US. I am certain Brazil is very unhappy with the US, given the CIA control of drugs in Columbia and other Latin American countries; not to mention, our probably involvement in the death of Hugo Chavez. South Africa is probably very alarmed at the "interest" being shown by the US in Africa. In other words, all of these countries have more to gain by the end of the US as a superpower than they figure they might lose in what is already becoming the inevitable use of nuclear weapons by the US in some regional conflict. Meanwhile the West, particularly the US has not appeared weaker than before World War II and our heavy industry is GONE. If we turn North Korea to glass, I can assure you, most US cities possessing large military targets would be gone immediately after. I believe, this is why the US has sent "Doomsday Aircraft" to the Korean theater.
