UPDATED 5:04  :18  :26 :38 PM EST (See Bottom) -- Senator Lindsay Graham has now publicly told the Pentagon to begin moving the Dependents of US Troops (Spouses and Children) OUT o South Korea because "War with North Korea is getting close."
The is a developing story, please check back for updates.



Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he will also urge the Pentagon not to send any more dependents to South Korea.
"It's crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea, given the provocation of North Korea. South Korea should be an unaccompanied tour," the South Carolina Republican said on CBS' "Face the Nation." ''So, I want them to stop sending dependents, and I think it's now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea."
About 28,500 U.S. troops are stationed in South Korea to deter potential aggression from the North.
Last week, North Korea shattered 2½ months of relative quiet by firing off an intercontinental ballistic missile that some observers say showed the reclusive country's ability to strike the U.S. East Coast. It was North Korea's most powerful weapons test yet.
The launch was a message of defiance to President Donald Trump's administration, which a week earlier had restored North Korea to a U.S. list of terror sponsors. It also hurt nascent diplomatic efforts and raised fears of a pre-emptive U.S. strike. Threats traded by Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have further stoked fears of war.
Graham expressed confidence in the Trump administration's ability to manage the growing conflict with North Korea.
"He's got the best national security team of anybody I have seen since I have been in Washington," said Graham, who has served in Congress since 1995.
The Trump administration has vowed to deny North Korea the capability of striking the U.S. homeland with a nuclear-tipped missile.
"Denial means pre-emptive war as a last resort. The pre-emption is becoming more likely as their technology matures," Graham told CBS. "I think we're really running out of time. The Chinese are trying, but ineffectively. If there's another underground nuclear test, then you need to get ready for a very serious response by the United States."
Trump has said he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about Pyongyang's "provocative actions," and he vowed that additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea. China is North Korea's only significant ally, but it has grown increasingly frustrated over the North's nuclear and missile tests that have brought a threat of war and chaos to China's northeastern border.



Planned military drills between South Korean and US forces will 'precipitate their self-destruction', North Korea says, the day before the exercises begin.
South Korea is a key US ally in the region and relies on US military assistance for security against the North. Troops from the two countries routinely train together, each time prompting outbursts from Pyongyang.
Monday's Vigilant Ace exercises, due to last five days, will involve more than 230 warplanes and 12,000 soldiers.
A spokesman for North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country said in the statement on Sunday that the goal of the training is to 'totally destroy' North Korea, according to comments carried by North Korean state news agency KCNA.
'The US and south Korean puppet military warmongers should bear in mind that their escalating provocation and adding to crimes will only invite more terrible retaliation and precipitate their self-destruction,' read the statement.
The warning comes a day after North Korea's foreign ministry warned that the US government is 'begging' for a nuclear war.
Last week, North Korea launched a missile it claimed was capable of reaching the entire US mainland, raising new fears about the country's nuclear arsenal and prompting the island US state of Hawaii to sound its nuclear attack sirens for the first time since the Cold War.


U.S. President Donald Trump will "take care of" the growing nuclear threat from North Korea by taking unilateral action if necessary, his national security adviser said Sunday.
H.R. McMaster made the remark on "Fox News Sunday" after North Korea launched what appeared to be its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile last week.
"The president is going to take care of it by, if we have to, doing more ourselves," he said. "But what we want to do is convince others it is in their interest to do more."

   Trump remarked after Tuesday's launch that "it is a situation that we will handle" and that "we will take care of it."


The pentagon is considering deploying THAAD to the west coast amid North Korea ICBM test

The following is a highly provocative article which contends that the US is highly vulnerable to attack.

Never mind that Kim is unlikely to attack unless he feels under attack from an aggressive US – my contenion.

He maintains that Trump needs this war to ease the tax burden. With Trump one would never know!
NOT my view!

Upon ACTUAL North Korea Missile ATTACK, Here's How it Would Play-out, step-by-step . . . and the END GAME. The U.S. Gov't NEEDS a lot of you DEAD

With the latest test by North Korea of a working Intercontinental Ballistic Missile, tensions between the US and North Korea continue to escalate.   
After it launched, U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said the missile demonstrated North Korea had the ability to hit “everywhere in the world.”
It would take only half an hour for a North Korean missile to reach the mainland U.S. During this time, there would be a flurry of activity involving emergency meetings, making sure the president is safe and deciding whether to retaliate.
Here’s what it would look like:
The fiery hot plume of the booster would be detected within one minute by U.S. satellites equipped with heat detectors. This would spark the early stage of the U.S. missile defense and the nuclear retaliation protocols.
Missile defense units at Fort Greeley Alaska and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California would be quickly notified. Allied countries, such as South Korea and Japan would also be briefed.
Once a rocket is launched, it goes straight up for awhile so it’s hard to determine its flight path. In order to detect where the missile is going, two ground radar sites in Alaska would detect and analyze the path. 
Our missile defense units would then prepare to launch their interceptors designed to hit the missile in the middle of its trajectory.  Here is where we have a REAL PROBLEM!
The interceptors have a 25 percent chance of hitting the attacking missile, but most experts believe the true performance to be much lower.
 I know, I know, you've heard, read and seen "successful" missile intercept TESTS, but what you did NOT see was that typically, we launch FOUR Interceptors at each TEST missile. What you see and read about in a successful test is the one and only (of the four) that actually hit the inbound Test missile!  

 Here is a brief, 2 minute video showing how VERY DIFFICULT it is to successfully intercept an ICBM; it is extremely tough and we are NOT as good at it as we need to be:
During the same time, an emergency video conference would be held with the head of strategic command, the president and his top advisers.
If the path of the missile is targeting North America, the president would have a few minutes to decide if retaliation is needed. 
Before this decision is made, the U.S. military’s alert would be raised two notches to a level known as “Defense Condition Two. (DEFCON 2)” The only other time this level has been reached was during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
U.S. forces would then prepare for retaliation and wait for a launch order.


The United States Missile Defense Program has forty (40) Ground-based Interceptors.  Yes, you read that correctly, we have 40.  And since real-life policy is to launch four Interceptors at each inbound attacking missile, if North Korea launched TEN attacking nuclear missiles, all forty of our Interceptors would likely be launched to take them out (hopefully).
What happens when North Korea launches ANOTHER ten attacking nuclear missiles?   We don't have any Ground-based Interceptors left.  ALL TEN GET THROUGH.
Good-bye New York City, Washington, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, and likely Seattle, Groton, CT, Norfolk, VA and Kings Bay, GA 
Seattle (Bremerton) and San Diego are our major naval bases on the west coast.  Groton, CT and Kings Bay, GA are our nuclear submarine bases.  Norfolk is our largest Naval base on the east coast.
So if North Korea merely launches twenty missiles, our Ground-Based Interceptors are totally used-up, and we still lose the top major cities in our country and five of our most important military bases/ports.  

GUAM? HAWAII?   Not a First-Strike!

A lot of "noise" has been made by North Korea about possibly striking the US Territory of GUAM and the US State of Hawaii; but those statements are a diversion.
While GUAM and HAWAII do have significant US military presence and power, they have limited supplies and must be re-supplied by the mainland US. 
So taking out the economy - and the banks - (New York City), and our seat of government (Washington, DC) and our ability to transfer supplies from our west coast bases/ports of Seattle (Bremerton) and San Diego, is absolutely essential for North Korea to do first.  And they will. 
All it takes for them to do so is ten initial missiles to deplete our Ground-Based Interceptors, then ten more missiles to go for  New York City, Washington, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, and likely Seattle, Groton, CT, Norfolk, VA and Kings Bay, GA  and we are CRIPPLED militarily and economically.
