North Korea's Kim has recently threatened to "settle accounts" with the U.S. and posed near a chart that appeared to detail bombings of American cities w/Washington DC one of four targets.
North Korea Eclipses Iran as Nuclear-Arms Threat Pyongyang, as a result of decades of covert atomic work, has already or is close to mastering the technology to mount one of its estimated dozen nuclear warheads atop medium & long range missiles that are capable of striking U.S. allies South Korea and Japan as well as the USA! By many estimates, North Korea will have the ability to deliver nuclear weapons using long-range ballistic missiles to distant targets within four to five years. Estimates range from 40 to over 100 long range nuclear missiles.
North Korea may furnish terrorist w/nuclear weapons as well. And let's not forget Iran, may have a nuclear bomb sometime this summer.
IMHO, If you live in Washington DC you may want to move while you still can.
According to internal documents obtained by Air Force Times, beginning on Apr. 9, 2013, the U.S. Air Force will begin grounding front line combat units.
Whilst some squadron will be immediately grounded, others will be forced down as soon as they come back from their overseas deployment.
Seventeen squadrons belonging to the various U.S. Air Force commands are going to be affected
Among them, the 94th Fighter Squadron from Langley, whose F-22 Raptor stealth fighters currently deployed to Kadena, Okinawa and Osan airbase amid Korean Peninsula crisis, or 354th Fighter Squadron, 12 A-10C of which are currently returning to Davis Monthan after being deployed to Afghanistan, etc. etc. etc.
U.S. officials tell NBC News they believe North Korea does have the capability to put a nuclear weapon on a missile and that they have missile deliverable nukes. Those missiles, however, cannot go more than 1000 miles. Also, Pay no attention to the Russian bombers making practice runs on US ships etc, off the coast of Korea. As for the Chinese military buildup along the North Korean border? Chinese are there to support our troops, lol.
Hopefuly, Obama Diplomacy will quite things down and North Korea can re- focus on Building Nuclear Missiles. As long as they are "quiet" everything will be okay, lol.
IMO, South Korea, Japan & Taiwan should announce plans to build Nuclear Missiles. Then watch as the Chinese make the North Korean Nukes Vanish?
Meanwhile, Feb 14, 2012
AP: Pentagon drafts plans for cuts in U.S. nuclear arsenal
Obama Administration would like to cut US Nuclear Force - 80%
Again, move out of Washington DC while you still can.
