Everyone was caught off guard and this is the only article I could find right after the President's address and is very incomplete.

Mind blowing, I lived through the Missile crisis and the erroneous sounding of an air raid siren on that event nail bitting weekend.

“We will end an outdated approach that for decades has failed and begin to normalize relations between our two countries,” he said. More »

Yes, I would have liked to see more quotes and considering the many faces of this action there was a lot of data missing. This is a bombshell no one saw this coming.

As a news, five bell, bulletin the largest news headline on the world stage since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1961. The amount of information ahead of the formal Presidential Address must have been cleared through The Press Office's.

Biggest story of the Obama White House.

Wednesday’s announcements follow more than a year of secret talks between U.S. and Cuban officials in Canada and the Vatican. U.S. officials said Pope Francis was ... More »

Yes as this topic has been out of sight, out of mind for way to long a period of time. It's a shame the news media didn't cover this sooner.

Ask yourself when you last read an article on our top-line nuclear weapons systems. I couldn't even recall when I did, and this is a bad thing.

To illustrate the degree of decay in the intercontinental ballistic missile force, the reviews found that maintenance crews had access to only one tool set required to ... More »

A bare knuckled opinion that is grimmer then I'd though - till now.

How does this end? Right now we are somewhere between the first two scenarios — and could remain ambiguously so for some time. The third scenario remains ... More »

My main comments are attached to the "Quote" but once again we find our selves in a mess mainly due to our intelligence agencies not talking to each others and we have widely stated facts as to North Korea's missile status. Shame on the government - Congressional and Executive branches.

Republicans in Congress have led efforts to increase money for missile defense, and Mr. Lamborn said that he raised the issue largely because the Obama administration ... More »

When it is state run and just another arm of those in power; thus the words "Good journalism" can't even apply, in any way! Is it even "Journalism"?

The U.S. and south Korean war maniacs are gravely mistaken and misjudged if they think they can have lucky chance. War can break out any moment and what remains to ... More »

This new admission of North Korea's nuclear delivery potential moves the whole crisis from shade of gray into a full rainbow. Further if the allegation that the President has been reluctant to spend funds on missile defenses are true he will have to and must no spend those funds; in fact now considerably more as this must be deployed at a much expatiated schedule.

Nonetheless, outside experts said that the report’s conclusions could explain why Mr. Hagel has announced in recent weeks that the Pentagon was bolstering long-range ... More »

Almost 2 days of quite and now they again raise tensions, this will be a very stressful period till Monday - which is the expected launch day, if there is one; IMO they sadly will.

Appears that due to pressure North Korea is cooling it, but if there is a missile firing (on Monday) all bets are off.

According to the DailyNK, a website that has reliable North Korean contacts, the authorities have ended the mobilisation of the North’s reserve soldiers and are now ... More »

Vital Threat or Level 2, with the next level "Used during war" This is so close as to be out of control that I'm starting to fear there will at least be some event with a military response..

Just found this link going directly to a North Korean news agency/source. Among many of interest was this of course bias completely plus not to be trusted; but with the word "Biochemical" alone it is an interesting read.

In case a nuclear war breaks out on the Korean Peninsula, the U.S. is going to use bio-chemical weapons as the ultimate measure. The south Korean puppets are in ... More »

2:44 PM 3/1/2012 ------------------------------- Holy mother of god; please impeach this moronic ass using his office of Sheriff (Maricopa County, Arizona) to make such slanderous statement. I hope the Secret Service and every law enforcement organization down the line investigate him and the County Board of Supervisors immediately put him on suspension while this act of liable and slander is handled. I would further hope that the White House Counsel's office look into legal action.
