Default U.S. warns that time is running out for peaceful solution with North Korea

One day we want to talk the next we warn and Kim just goes on.. So we talk till he decides to what ever?

On the one hand if we don't at some point act on our warnings we be sheep And with the North "nuked up" plus the two giants of socialism, well that makes for trouble sooner or later.

On the other hand we might find a new planet for western nations.

Administration officials said the risk from North Korea’s nuclear weapons program is rising, and underscored that President Trump will confront the looming crisis at the U.N. General Assembly this week. Trump, who spoke by phone with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Saturday, referred to Kim on Twitter as “Rocket Man” and asserted that “long gas lines” are forming in the North because of recent U.N. sanctions on oil imports.

“If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,” U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “None of us want that. None of us want war. But we also have to look at the fact that you are dealing with someone [in Kim] who is being reckless, irresponsible and is continuing to give threats not only to the United States, but to all of its allies. So something is going to have to be done.”

US Hopes New, Tougher Sanctions Will Stop N. Korea Weapons Development
September 21, 2017 — The United States on Thursday further clamped down on North Korea's ties to the outside world, moving to sever any links between Pyongyang and banks outside the reclusive state.
"Foreign financial institutions are now on notice that going forward they can choose to do business with the United States or with North Korea, but not both," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told reporters in New York. "This new executive order enables Treasury to freeze assets of anyone conducting significant trade in goods, services or technology with North Korea. It also allows us to freeze assets of actors supporting North Korea's textiles, fishing, IT and manufacturing industries," Mnuchin said. Echoing the words of President Donald Trump earlier in the day, Mnuchin said Pyongyang has for too long "evaded sanctions and used the international financial system to facilitate funding for its weapons and mass destruction and ballistic missile programs."

Shipping, trade networks

The Trump administration is also specifically targeting North Korea's shipping and trade networks. Any plane or ship that has visited North Korea is prohibited from arriving in the United States for 180 days, according to a text of a notification letter Trump sent to the speaker of the House of Representatives. "This is the right decision by the Trump administration," former U.S. Undersecretary of State R. Nicholas Burns told VOA. "The U.S. and others need to increase the economic costs to Pyongyang for its illegal and destabilizing nuclear program," added Burns, a Harvard University professor and director of the Kennedy School's Future of Diplomacy Project.

"Today's action follows the approach used against Iran where countries, banks and individuals had to choose between Iran and the United States," said Anthony Ruggerio, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. "North Korea relies on its international commercial and financial networks to procure items for its weapons programs, luxury goods for the elites and other items, and sanctions can restrict North Korea's revenue available for those purposes," Ruggiero, a former U.S. government specialist on targeted financial measures, told VOA.

In an exchange with reporters, Mnuchin said: "I'm not going to comment on what I expect North Korea to do. Obviously ... the objective is for them to stop their missile tests and give up their nuclear weapons." China's central bank has also reportedly ordered the country's financial institutions to stop doing business with North Korea, action Trump called "a tremendous move" that was "somewhat unexpected." Trump expressed thanks to Chinese President Xi Jinping for the move, saying "that was a great thing he did today."

North Korea Threatens Nuclear Test in Pacific
September 22, 2017 — North Korea indicated it may soon test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean after the country’s leader Kim Jong Un warned he would match U.S. President Donald Trump’s threatening words and new sanctions with equally provocative action.
The North Korean leader responded Friday to Trump’s United Nations address this week, when the U.S. leader referred to Kim as a “Rocket Man” on a suicide mission, called the government in Pyongyang a “depraved regime,” and said if forced to defend itself or its allies, the Untied States will “totally destroy North Korea.” In a statement directly attributed to the North Korean leader, Kim on Friday said Trump displayed “mentally deranged behavior” with his threat to destroy a sovereign nation. He called the U.S. president a “rogue and a gangster,” and promised to answer Trump’s insults with the “highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history.” “Action is the best option in treating the dotard who, hard of hearing, is uttering only what he wants to say,” said Kim in statement that was released by the North Korean state news agency KCNA. The agency released a photo of the North Korean leader reading the statement.

Pacific test

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, who will address the United Nations Friday, told reporters in New York that Kim likely intends to carry out a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean. Attempting to conduct an open air nuclear test in international waters would be a highly risky and aggressive act that could, at the very least, expose islands in the Pacific to dangerous levels of radiation, as well damage electrical systems in the region from the strong electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by the blast. It could also draw the U.S. into taking preventive military action. “That could trigger probably the strongest response, other than an actual military attack I think, that is probably about the limit where North Korea could go,” said Daniel Pinkston, a regional security analyst with Troy University in Seoul.

Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test earlier this month, but all its atomic bombs have been detonated in an underground facility. The last reported open-atmosphere nuclear test was conducted by China before 1980, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA.) The U.S. and the Soviet Union detonated numerous atomic bombs in the ocean and upper atmosphere before signing the 1963 nuclear test ban treaty that prohibits atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons. North Korea has also conducted numerous ballistic missile tests with the goal of developing a nuclear tipped intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of targeting the U.S. mainland.

However, both President Trump’s harsh rhetoric and Kim Jong Un’s provocative response may also be diplomatic ploys to gain a future negotiating advantage. “The exchange of blusters may indicate that both sides want to compel the other side to back down with the assumption that the other side prefers a diplomatic solution to the current situation,” said Bong Young-shik, with the Yonsei University Institute for North Korean Studies in Seoul.

North Korea on verge of 'catastrophe' at nuclear site - China warns Kim to STOP tests
Mon, Oct 30, 2017 | NORTH Korea has been warned not to detonate another hydrogen bomb at its nuclear test site or risk a huge catastrophe for both Kim's hermit state and China.
Scientists from Beijing believe the Punggye-ri nuclear facility is unstable and that just one more explosion could blow the top off of Mount Mantap, beneath which all six of North Korea's nuclear tests thave been conducted. That could lead to the mountain collapsing, causing radioactive waste to escape and blow aross the border into China just 50 miles away. Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Geology and Geophysics warned Pyongyang delegates of the risk during a briefing in Beijing soon after North Korea's last nuclear test on September 3, according ot the South China Morning Post.

China has urged Kim Jong Un not to test anymore nuclear weapons at Punggye-ri

Tellingly, the meeting occured two days before North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told reporters at the United Nations Assembly in New York Pyongyang was considering conducting a hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean. Zhai Mingguo, a senior Chinese geologist who organised the September 20 briefing, told the newspaper: “This is a big, sophisticated problem requiring multiple, systematic approaches. "Our meeting is only a part of the efforts.” The North Korea delegation was reportedly led by Lee Doh-sik, director of the Geological Research Institute at the State Academy of Sciences. Another Chinese professor said the scientist was "a top geologist" but was not involved in the country's nuclear development programme.

North Korea conducted its sixth nuclear weapons test in September

Kim Han-kwon, a professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy in Seoul said: “North Korea has been walking a diplomatic tightrope by taking advantage of strategic mistrust between China and Russia, but it has not been easy as Beijing has sternly responded to its nuclear and missile provocations. North Korea has not engaged in any missile or nuclear provocations since mid-September. Last week it was revealed Pyongyang had written an open letter to Australian MPs asking them not to support US President Donald Trump, a move Canberra politcians showed the tough economic sanctions were working.
