Source: Los Angeles Times

“The United States flew two supersonic bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday in a show of force against North Korea, South Korean officials said. The U.S. often sends powerful warplanes in times of heightened animosities with North Korea, and flew B-1B bombers several times this year as the North conducted a series of banned ballistic missile tests. Tuesday’s flights by the B-1Bs came shortly after the death of a U.S. college student who was recently released by North Korea in a coma following more than 17 months in captivity.” (06/20/17)

“The University of Virginia student who has been detained in North Korea for more than a year was finally released Tuesday — after mysteriously falling ill and spending most of his imprisonment in a coma, his family said. Otto Warmbier, who was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for alleged theft, left the isolated empire comatose on a Medivac flight, according to a statement from his parents. The family told The Washington Post Warmbier came down with botulism the same month he was sentenced to prison last year. He then fell into a coma after taking a sleeping pill, North Korean officials told them.” (06/13/17)

Source: Time

“The Worm has returned. On Tuesday, former NBA great Dennis Rodman flew back to North Korea during a time of heightened tensions with Washington, after the rogue state’s 16 missile tests so far this year, and its arrest of two more U.S. citizens, bringing the total number of Americans held by the regime to four. It’s the third trip to North Korea for Rodman, who was previously hosted in 2013 and 2014 by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, a known basketball fanatic. … Sources close to Rodman told TIME that the visit would likely last until the weekend. Senior U.S. diplomats in South Korea confessed to having no knowledge of the trip, while the State Department said it was aware but stressed the visit was unofficial.” (06/13/17)

North Korea: Regime says missile meets all specifications, ready for mass-production

Source: Reuters

“North Korea said on Monday it had successfully tested an intermediate-range ballistic missile which met all technical requirements and could now be mass-produced, indicating advances in its ambitions to be able to hit the United States. The North fired the missile into waters off its east coast on Sunday, its second missile test in a week, which South Korea said dashed the hopes of the South’s new liberal government under President Moon Jae-in for peace between the neighbors. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test of the Pukguksong-2, which confirmed reliable late-stage guidance of the warhead and the functioning of a solid-fuel engine, the KCNA state news agency said.” (05/22/17)

The buttinski should butt out of Korea

by Jacob G Hornberger

“Korea is none of the U.S. government’s business. The only proper course of action is for the Pentagon and the CIA to exit the country and bring those 23,000 American soldiers stationed in Korea home. No negotiations. No agreements. No talks. Just butt out of what is none of your business and exit the scene by coming home. Why are there 23,000 U.S. troops in Korea? It’s because the U.S. government, headed by President Harry S. Truman and his newly established national-security establishment, decided to intervene in another country’s civil war more than half-a-century ago.” (05/15/17)
