Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

At a sensitive moment that both US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are traveling in Asia where they are discussing both China and North Korea policies with allied leaders in Tokyo and Seoul on Tuesday and Wednesday, CNN has cited US intelligence officials who say Pyongyang is likely preparing to conduct its first weapons test since Biden entered the White House.

CNN’s Barabara Starr reports that American intelligence agencies “are on alert as the US and South Korea conduct scaled-down, simulated military exercises” and further that “North Korea might decide whether to go through with a test after seeing what comes out of Blinken and Austin’s meetings in Asia.”

US Intelligence "On Alert" As North Korea Poised For First Weapons Test Of Biden Era

The White House is reported to be mulling a response should North Korea actually go through with a test.

Also on Tuesday, as CNN details, a top US general who heads up US Northern Command (which overseas defense of the continental United States), Gen. Glen Van Herck, issued the following warning:

“The Kim Jong Un regime has achieved alarming success in its quest to demonstrate the capability to threaten the U.S. homeland with nuclear-armed ICBMs, believing such weapons are necessary to deter US military action and ensure his regime’s survival.”

Meanwhile, on the same day the powerful sister of Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong, warned the United States it must “refrain from causing a stink” if it desires to “sleep in peace” over the next four years.

“We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off gun powder smell in our land,” she said. “If it wants to sleep in peace for coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” she added. It marked the first time the ‘rogue regime’ directly addressed the new Biden administration.

However, one prominent regional affairs expert, Tom Fowdy, called attention to the timing of all this sudden bluster out of Pyongyang, noting that “North Korea are masters at getting America’s attention and forcing themselves on the agenda. By making a series of threats now, Pyongyang are unintendedly distracting the US from the anti-China dynamic of Blinken’s visits too.”

“North Korea plays what is essentially a small hand, to the absolute best of their ability every time. The two countries’ situations are very different, but it has to be said they are far more tactful, strategic, prudent and outright Machiavellian negotiators than China,” he added.

Never really understood why Kim Jong Un sat down with the Trumpet, a puppet representative of the terrorist Ziocorporate globalist regime that used even the UN “peacekeepers” to kill millions of Koreans in the 1950s to be able to steal the southern part of the peninsula.

Then again, those things become far easier to understand when one’s reminded that China owes 100% of its economic “miracle” to tech transfers and trade prerogatives from the US and other Western terrorist Zioglobalists they were supposedly “against” in that same 1950s Korea war.

If the US had any intelligence they would withdraw all the troops and bases from Korea and allow them to reunite.


of course but the yankee-twats lack the necessary thinking capabilities

I bet that test is funded by the IRGC and its surplus oil that Kim Young-un needs.


NK is an oil producing country. Not many people know about it.

Chloe Salpa

Ja,jaj,ja. Singapore has more oil than NK could ever hope to have


NK doesn’t want to reveal it and has kept it secret. here are some pictures. first picture shows areas nk is exploring and second picture shows nk extracting oil.

I cheer each time Kim Jong-un tries out the latest of North Korea’s missiles and assume a) that the reach is improved to include los angeles and hopefully washington dc and b) that nukes can be fitted on the missiles with no problem and c) that he has a few to spare to sell to Iran (which is in need of some good fresh megaton ones to take out and disappear the jews from the illegally occupied palestine).


NK has enormous natural resources such as rare earth minerals, uranium, oil, etc. NK has two thirds of world’s rare earth minerals:

NK started to research and develop nukes right after the Korean war and it has been almost 70 years since then. With enormous uranium reserves NK has, NK can produce an unlimited number of nukes. NK has ICBMs, SLBMs, emps, nuke subs, etc. and NK subs are already patrolling US coasts. NK probably has 1000-2000 nukes currently. NK has the ability to annihilate and erase US off the map.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
