North Korea threatens nuclear strike on Australia.

Yes, it is true! The NK government is unequivocal.

Threat timed to coincide with Mike Pence's visit to Australia.

But will the Trump administration act?

This is what the NK foreign Ministry spokesman actually said.

North Korea has bluntly warned Australia of a possible nuclear strike if Canberra persists in “blindly and zealously toeing the US line”.

North Korea’s state new agency (KCNA) quoted a foreign ministry spokesman castigating Australian foreign minister, Julie Bishop, after she said the rogue nation would be subject to further Australian sanctions and for “spouting a string of rubbish against the DPRK over its entirely just steps for self-defence”.

“If Australia persists in following the US moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and remains a shock brigade of the US master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK,” the report said.

“The Australian foreign minister had better think twice about the consequences to be entailed by her reckless tongue-lashing before flattering the US.”

Maybe Fatty KIm knows something about why the Carl Vinson visited Australia that we don't know.

Why did the Carl Vinson head towards Australia before going north to Korea? I suspect that the US kept specialist equipment and munitions there. Perhaps "clean" bombs like the neutron bomb. It is not known if the US possesses the neutron bomb but I imagine that it would be the perfect solution to the artillery that is aimed at Seoul. The radiation will kill the artillery crew and also will clear up within a short period of time. It was designed for use against Soviet armies invading Germany.

By the way, Neverfail. N Korean missiles can reach Australia. I just thought you would like to know. But don't worry. I don't think Fatty Kim's scientists know how to mount a nuclear warhead - yet. Better do something about it now than face his nukes later.

Thanks cassowary! :D :D :D

:idea:

:? Umm,, are you aware that USS Carl Vinson did not put in at any Australian port. It was on the high seas heading our way when ordered to change course towards the Sea of Japan.

I know. But it close enough to Australian shores for it to pick up equipment and munitions by using transport ships. Why else would it be doing so close to Australia?

Doc,

I think deep down inside, Fatty Kim is terrified and insecure that tomorrow is his last day.

US will honor dumb deal oBUMa made with Australia.
Reuters) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday the United States would honor a controversial refugee deal with Australia, under which the United States would resettle up to 1,250 asylum seekers, a deal President Donald Trump had described as “dumb”.
Let's see.

1)Carl Vinson made a detour towards Australia on the way to Korean waters
2)Fatty Kim is made at Australia
3)US will honor refugee deal with Australia that Trump called, "dumb".

What favor did Australia do for Trump that got him to change his mind about the dumb deal and also got Fatty Kim mad at Australia?

Kim's regime may have missiles, and those missiles may have a certain range, but that doesn't mean they have accuracy. Besides, no matter how crazy they are they have to understand that any first strike -- even an ineffective one -- and Pyongyang get glassed.

Joint exercises with our Navy?

Word to head north instead most likely came AFTER the ship/s were en route towards Aus. for the exercises.

I am not aware of any specialist equipment or munitions that the US navy has in storage in Australia. Especially not along that desolate stretch of Indian Ocean coastline which is the closest the US vessels would have approached.
