"Locked and Loaded", War with North Korea Cannot be Contained but Must Be Prevented

Rehearsing Armageddon Ann Garrison: North Korea is standing up to the US’s 4800 “locked and loaded” nuclear weapons with an estimated 30 to 60 of its own. Do you think it would still be standing without them? K.J.Noh: It’s hard to imagine so. North Korea has been in a defensive crouch since the inception of its state.

Major Geopolitical Shift: Turkey Ends Its Support of Syria Opposition Rebels as ‘Goodwill Towards Damascus’
