Cyber Warfare: Did Trump Admin Sabotage N. Korea Missile Test ?

  Please, the North Korean Government, if you wish to see it as that, does not have a clue to how many Anonymous Activist, that support Trump, and this includes our team members, of which they are elite. The important thing to remember is Japan, if North Korea, feels as if there is no other choice, just like Japan did, they will start a war.

 The former UK foreign secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind claims that US cyber warfare may possibly be behind North Korea’s failed attempt to launch a missile over the weekend.

The Trump administration remains silent on the matter.

Russia has moved missiles and troops close to the border with North Korea.

North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile on Sunday morning, but the missile “blew up almost immediately,” according to U.S. Pacific Command.

On Saturday North Korea held a massive military parade marking the 105th birth anniversary of its founder Kim Il-sung, grandfather of current leader Kin Jong-un.

North Korea’s second in command after Kim Jong-un warns about the possible cyber attack: “If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with [an] annihilating strike… with our style of nuclear strike warfare.cyber warfare

The National Scot reports:

Kim Jong-Un’s missile test in defiance of United Nations sanctions went spectacularly wrong when the rocket exploded five seconds after launch. Rifkind claimed yesterday that a cyber-attack affecting the electronics of the missile may well have caused the failure.

Deputy national security adviser KT McFarland declined to comment on whether US sabotaged the Korean missile launch with cyber warfare – the American intelligence agencies have reportedly had such a programme for years after former President Barack Obama ordered its creation.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis would only say later: “The President and his military team are aware of North Korea’s most recent unsuccessful missile launch. The President has no further comment.”

Other senior US sources were not denying the claims which, if true, could well be seen as an act of war by the dictator, which adds weight to the threats issued by North Korea over the weekend.

Senior North Korean military commander Choe Ryong-Hae, reckoned by many experts to be second in command of the regime, told the state news agency: “If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with [an] annihilating strike… with our style of nuclear strike warfare.”

Speaking to the BBC yesterday morning, Rifkind said American intelligence has used cyber warfare to successfully foil missile tests before and that there is a “strong belief” that President Trump’s administration was behind Saturday’s failure.

He said: “It could have failed because the system is not competent enough to make it work, but there is a very strong belief that the US through cyber methods has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts of tests and making them fail.”

Rifkind warned that despite the missile exploding, North Korea remains a serious nuclear threat saying “don’t get too excited by that, they’ve also had quite a lot of successful tests.”

He added: “They are an advanced country when it comes to their nuclear weapons programme. That still remains a fact – a hard fact.”

A US foreign policy adviser travelling with Vice-President Mike Pence on Air Force Two to South Korea said that Saturday’s test had come as no surprise to the US administration.

Speaking anonymously, the adviser said: “We had good intelligence before the launch and good intelligence after the launch.

“It’s a failed test. It follows another failed test.

The adviser continued: “So really no need to reinforce their failure. We don’t need to expend any resources against that.”

Meanwhile former CIA officer Dennis Wilder told ABC news in the USA that North Korea would be able to strike at both the American west coast and Australia very soon if the country was able to keep developing its missiles.

He said: “Such a move would be disastrous – after all a 10-kiloton weapon could kill 100,000 people.

“We believe, and American intelligence estimates say this, that the North Koreans could have such a weapon within the next four years.”

Yet again President Trump took to Twitter to give his reactions: “Our military is building and is rapidly becoming stronger than ever before. Frankly, we have no choice!”

He also suggested that China is helping with the “North Korea problem” as part of a deal with the USA involving trade policy.

Trump tweeted: “Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem? We will see what happens!”

Lt Gen HR McMaster, Trump’s national security advisor, went on television to give the administration’s view of the weekend’s events which included Kim Jong-Un reviewing a spectacular parade of military might.

McMaster told ABC News This Week: “The test fits into a pattern of provocative and destabilising and threatening behaviour on the part of the North Korean regime.

“There’s an international consensus now — including the Chinese and the Chinese leadership — that this is a situation that just can’t continue.

“While it’s unclear and we do not want to telegraph in any way how we’ll respond to certain incidents, it’s clear that the President is determined not to allow this kind of capability to threaten the United States.

“Our President will take action that is in the best interest of the American people. And the President has made clear that he will not accept the United States and its allies and partners in the region being under threat from this hostile regime with nuclear weapons.”

It was also reported yesterday that the man in charge of the world’s second biggest nuclear arsenal, Vladimir Putin, had moved missiles and troops close to the North Korea border.

Russia only has 11 miles of a border with North Korea, but the major city of Vladivostok is just eight miles from that border, and residents yesterday posted footage on the internet allegedly showing trucks carrying missiles trundling through their city.

The Russian Government has not confirmed the purpose of the military movements.

If we didn't interfere, we should have!  The Madman is handling very serious stuff.  Looks like Mike Pence, made it more than clear ,as to the future toleration of this crazy Loon's actions.  Those "Goose-Steppers" remind many of News Reels of the 40's, where another Madman had the same thing.

Hi Jo,

 You know this is becoming scary stuff, and fact is, if they are pressured, and no talks attempted again, we will be at war.

Kind of like being between a rock & a hard place.  Sit by, as three Administrations have, while this Regime plans our demise, the pace accelerating, and again being reactive, or for the first time in about 30 years actually addressing the problem.  Being out front, instead of waiting until he has completed his lunacy, might save millions of Lives, to say nothing of the Western sections of the U.S.   I see it as an immediate threat, and  with no room for quibbling in regards to our any longer being indecisive.  He is crazy, a killer, and as such values Human Life very little.  I think if anyone can handle it, it will be through negotiations that Trump can arrange.  Hoping pressure & cooperation with China can persuade a lessening of tensions, or possibly a Regime change.  A Crazy man with a Bomb cannot be ignored when he tells you he is coming after you.


 ''  Kin Jong-un ''  .... reminds me of the  '' penguin ''  from  '' BATMAN '' ....

AND ..... he has NO FEAR of President Trump or America either.

IF ... he were attacked he would go ' underground ' ... ( into the sewers like the penguin ).

AND .... he would live there in the lap of luxury for years ....

WHEN …. We finally flush him out he will either commit suicide or live pretty damn good in prison at TAXPAYERS EXPENSE …..

In his warped mind …. HE HAS NOT THAT MUCH TO LOSE ……. ! ! !

 The North Korean Government has developed ICBM's with Mini warheads, these war heads have the ability to duck counter measures. it was noted these ICBMs can carry up to 12 or so Mini Warheads.

 Plus there was a development in Warheads that can be fired like a torpedo. The Mini torpedo is or are so small that it could not be seen by our Navy Counter Measures,   so, lets hope all of this Media crap is just BS,.

I kind of agree with Tif's opening statement, it is on record, that if you box in a country, and they feel threaten with slavery through economics, they will strike and Pearl Harbor does come to mind.




 Lowest Female Unemployment
In 18 years!”

President Donald Trump needled the mostly anti-Trump Women’s March on Saturday, reminding them of the positive economic gains for women under his administration.

“Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March,” he wrote on Twitter. “Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!”

Temperatures in the Washington, DC area rose to 59 degrees on Saturday afternoon after several days of cold weather. The Washington, DC march was smaller this year than the previous one in 2017, but organizers focused their efforts on attending a march in Las Vegas.

Thousands of women across the country rallied in major cities to oppose Trump and his policies, vowing to step up activism in the 2018 congressional midterms.
