Something is going down as we speak in North Korea. Journalists are tweeting from the North Korean capitol in Prongyang, alerting the world that they have been given an order to evacuate the capitol to “prepare for a big important event.” Many in the area are being told that the circumstances are urgent, but are not given any idea of what to expect. All cell phones and form of communications are being confiscated. But what’s more concerning is that the Chinese army has been deployed to the North Korean border for reasons now that remain a mystery.
SEOUL (Reuters) – Foreign journalists visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on Thursday, although there were no indications it was directly linked to tensions in the region over the isolated state’s nuclear weapons program.
As journalists are freaking out and tweeting about unusual warnings at the capitol, China is also moving troops towards the North Korean border, although no one has a clue what the hell is going on. Other sources say DPRK has apparently placed a nuclear device in a tunnel and it could be detonated Saturday AM Korean time. The UPI reported:
China has ordered its military to be on nationwide alert, in addition to areas near the North Korea border, as tensions escalate on the peninsula.
The Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, a nongovernmental organization in Hong Kong, said Beijing has ordered troops at all five military “regions” to maintain preparedness because of the situation in North Korea, according to Oriental Daily News in Hong Kong.
According to the NGO, China’s armored and mechanized infantry brigades in the provinces of Shandong, Zhejiang and Yunnan received the state mandate.
So just what the hell is going on? Over the past several days, Kim Jong un has been throwing a massive fit after President Trump did airstrikes on Syria, where he came out drawing red lines in the sand and threatening to launch nuclear missiles if the United States does further airstrikes.
Could this simply be a show of force on the part of North Korea? Yesterday as we reported, President Trump sent 17,000 troops to South Korea, where Seal Team 6, Army Rangers, Green Berets, are participating in a training exercise that is completely shrouded in secret. As we reported yesterday:
The training began the day after the US deployed their mobile THAAD (The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile defense system to South Korea, a badass “hit to kill” system that provides the capability to intercept and defend population centers around the world in the event that nuclear weapons are launched. It is sending a huge message to our enemies, as it has a 100 percent success rate, and is described by its makers, Lockheed Martin, as “one of the most advanced missile defense systems in the world.” The News.au has more:
It works by using radar to detect incoming threats and firing interceptors from truck-mounted launchers which destroy missiles using kinetic energy.
The US claims it’s a “strictly defensive” system but moving it to the region has angered China and Russia, and inspired protests in South Korea by those who say it contributes to escalating militarisation on the Korean peninsula.
China claim the radar reaches too far into their land and could be used aggressively. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has previously said it could threaten “China’s legitimate national security interests.”
Whatever is going on, things are extremely tense all around the world as world leaders vie for power. We will keep you updated here on Freedom Daily with any new developments.
