The Chinese Government says it is going to implement the United Nations's resolution no. 2375 directed against North Korea. North Korean entities of enterprise established in China as well as individually founded businesses must be closed down within 120 days starting from September 11, the day when the resolution passed.

An assessment of North Korea's military power (published on July 19, 2017).


The ratio between North Korean troops and civilians
has risen to 1:3. - Nerves react unusually sensitive
when it comes to ask for a way out for the peninsula.


Message compiled from the web on September 28: North Korea declared, about 4.700.000 students and workers are already willing to apply for entering or are summoned again to enter the North Korean People's Army. But if interrelated reports are true and North Korea already levied new troops near to 20% of the population to enter into service, this will add to the existing military force and which is exceeding one million (1.000.000). The number of North Korea's military units will then reach out for 25% of the overall population.

[Editor: The overall population of North Korea is considered to be about 25.000.000 朝鲜总人口约2500万]


Moreover, the South Korean [news agency] quoted North Korea's mouthpiece, the "Workers Party News", in a report that said: Among those willing to enter the North Korean army as new soldiers are about 1.200.000 women.

What Chinese think of North Korea (published on May 14, 2017).


A letter from the DPRK: As to the nuclear testing, that's the life we lead.


This year in September, the Wall Street Journal reporter to Pyongyang carried out a series of visits and interviews under tight control.

From the perspective of an English diplomat and from children tinkering with toy guns up to the atomic [war] pattern everywhere to be seen, Pyongyang repeatedly stresses this kind of message: The DPRK will never give up its nuclear weapons.

Donald Trump - Still Calling Names

Today the Voice of America, Chinese edition, is referring to Donald Trump's bad habit of publicly calling names on people he doesn't like. Here are some examples:

Chuck Todd - "Sleepy Eyes"
Mr. Todd is an American television journalist, moderator and the political director for NBC News. His new nickname might be related to Trump's hate of free media journalists who produce what Trump calls "the fake news".

Elizabeth Warren - "Pocahontas"
A member of the Democratic Party, she is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts. Warren was formerly a professor of law, and taught at the University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and most recently at Harvard Law School. A prominent scholar specializing in bankruptcy law, Warren was among the most cited law professors in the field of commercial law before starting her political career.

By the way, Donald Trump must have some experience with bankruptcy law himself as is being indicated by his own proceedings as a business man.

Hillary Clinton - "Crooked Hillary" - "Nasty Woman" is sufficiently known as Trump's competitor for U.S. presidency and as a former Secretary of State and chief of the State Department.

Not to forget two prominent leaders of the opposing Democratic Party, Chuck Schumer - "Clown" and Nancy Pelosi - "Loser".

And now it's Kim Jong-un - "Rocket Man on a suicide mission for himself".

Even though tough words might be suitable for the North Korean leader who seemingly doesn't understand another language, Trump's inaugural speech before the United Nations General Assembly should have been of another quality. Especially when it comes to the verbal attack on Iran putting the Islamic Republic near to North Korea while serious western sources are pointing out that Iran is still keeping to the conditions of an earlier reached nuclear deal. Maybe a recent meeting between North Korea's envoy and Iran's president Rouhani has triggered off Trump's latest outbreak of adversion against Iran.

N Korea - Electromagnetic Mass Destruction

North Korea threat: EMP attack can destroy
a nation’s entire infrastructure in a flash.

KIM Jong-un needs only one hydrogen bomb to
bring America to its knees. And he knows it.

This is the nation-wide effect
it can have in nanoseconds.

These are today's headlines of, an Australian online news service. You should read the complete article on the consequences of an Electromagnetic Pulse EMP that is created by a powerfull nuclear explosion at high altitude and that can knock out, both, electric and electronic infrastructure of a targeted country without the need to precisely hit and destroy a specific target. It only needs what Kim Jong-un still has in his hands.

The Australian article comes at a time when North Korean media praise the EMP as a weapon to bring down the U.S. after Kim Jong-un obviously succeeded in creating enough nuclear fire power to get in reach of such possibility. However, things are not so easy for the North Koreans:

" The nuclear arsenals of the United States are hardened against any EMP pulse. It’s also one of the reasons so much effort and money is invested on near-invisible and widely dispersed ballistic missile submarines.

The instant a North Korean ICBM was detected to be on a trajectory capable of delivering such a high-altitude blow, a retaliatory firestorm of nuclear warheads would almost certainly be unleashed on North Korea itself.

Such is the grim nature of Mutually Assured Destruction — the Cold War philosophy that compelled cool minds to avert the catastrophe which could have resulted from the likes of the 1960s Cuban missile crisis. "

The Apprentice Wizard

Let's now sum up the facts to get a realistic view on the matter:

The U.S. and North Korea could easily annihilate
each other in a showdown of nuclear power that
is lasting no longer than one single hour.

Thereby not to mention the huge "collateral damage"
left to neighbouring countries and the major global
consequences in the fields of economy and finance.

Russia's Putin on Korea Conflict


Putin is convinced that any solution for the ‬problem of
the Korean peninsula could only be found by dialogue.

据塔斯社1日援引普京的话报道,事实证明,靠向朝鲜政府施压以使其暂停核导活动是错误的, 只有通过有关各方开展直接对话才能解决朝鲜半岛问题,而且这一对话应建立在不设前提条件、 不相互挑衅、不相互施压、不相互用武力威胁、不相互打“口水仗”的基础上。

Based on a TASS [Russia's news agency] report from 1st September Putin should have said that reality proves it would be a mistake to rely on putting pressure on North Korea to make it stop its nuclear missile activity for the short term.

Only by proceeding through a direct dialogue, both sides are interested to develop, a solution for the problem of the Korean peninsula could be reached.

Furthermore, that dialogue should be established on the basis of no preconditions, no mutual provocation, no mutual application of pressure, no mutual military threats and, as well, no mutual "spitting battles".

"Spitting Battle":

North Korean fisherboat chased away from Japanese fishing grounds near Yamato Bank by Japanese Coastguard with the help of their water cannon. Since July 2017, North Korean boats had already ignored more than 820 coastguard warnings.
