North Korea to Bomb Maine Blogger?

Some wouldn't mind. 

from the Telegraph:

North Korea plan to attack US mainland revealed in photographs

North Korea has revealed its plans to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States in photos taken in Kim Jong-un's military command centre.

North Korea has revealed its plans to strike targets in Hawaii and the continental United States in photos taken in Kim Jong-un's military command centre.

The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an "emergency meeting" early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea's strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.

The images show a chart marked "US mainland strike plan" and missile trajectories that the NK News web site estimates terminate in Hawaii, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
The text on the map, which shows the west coast of North America, says “Plan to hit the U.S. mainland”
The meeting of the Pyongyang's senior military leaders was called after two US B2 bombers, flying out of bases in Missouri, carried out simulated bombing raids on North Korean targets on an island off the coast of South Korea.
"He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets, ordering them to be on standby to fire so that they may strike any time the US mainland, its military bases in the operational theatres in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea," the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

It added that the B2 test flights demonstrated Washington's "hostile intent" and said the "reckless" act had gone "beyond the phase of threat and blackmail."
The North's military was placed on its highest alert level earlier this week and a hotline link with the South Korean military was severed.
North Korea has also cut the mobile Internet link for foreign visitors, only weeks after the 3G service was introduced.

Despite the increasingly belligerent rhetoric and new images emerging from the North Korean regime, analysts believe its missiles are not capable of striking targets as far away as the US mainland and are not, as yet, capable of delivering a nuclear payload.
The images of Kim surrounded by his officers and diagrams of targets in the US are designed for a domestic consumption and to demonstrate the young leader's mastery of military affairs, experts believe

OT –

On the DD site I saw this little gem about the woman who was convicted of reckless aggravated assault for burning her husband with oatmeal:

She said:
“He gets on top of me, and he’s got my head in a lock,” she said. “He’s slamming me on this side and jugging my jaw here. And I know I’m not going to make it, and he’s on top of me, and at that point in time, that’s about 230 pounds right about here…I heard my ribs crack, and they were breaking.”

He said:
“At the same moment she went at me, I went at her,” Douglas Jeffries said. “I was on the ground. I got on top of her to control her because she was going crazy. I’m freaking out because I’m burning up. Stuff was on me. … we are tussling. I grabbed her head and hit it on the floor a couple times to calm her down.”

Statement analysis observation: she is talking present tense and he is talking past tense. (He is speaking from experiential memory, she is making up a story in the here and now.)

Thank you for the update, Nanna.

There is so many people involved with this (case), my question is when did they become involved.

Was this a hired hit? conspired with the egg donor? she to be the one with the most to gain, out of all, until proven otherwise.

The daughter quoting her mother, of her wanting to know how soon the LIP on her year old son (murdered) would pay out... if this is true, if she indeed said it. I have not read the transcript of the mother, nor watched the Morgan show (CNN). The flag for me was her to mail a letter, of why she was out with the baby, in the stroller, just doesn't set right.

Did she actually mail something, and if she did " Mail" something was it retracted by LE?

Read more:

“He asked me for money and I said I didn’t have it,” she said. “When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They’re expensive. And he kept asking and I just said 'I don’t have it.’ And he said, 'Do you want me to kill your baby?’ And I said, 'No, don’t kill my baby!”’ West said the gunman fired four shots, the first into the ground. West didn’t see a shell casing ejected and she assumed the gun wasn’t real.

Her statements are whack. To add, who asks someone, as they are held at gun point "do you want me to kill your baby?"

Expecting what as a response? yeah go ahead I can make another one.

It doesn't add, her story, her statements. These boys being said to be the perps. The (3) 911 calls, the callers to not see the shooting, only to hear the gun shots. All the adults coming out of the woodwork, arrests. This isn't over yet, obviously.

Poor little baby didn't have a chance.

Sus said...

Would you please address whether the SA can be applied to the statements of a schizophrenic. I don't see how it could when the mental illness involves delusions and disorganized thought patterns.

Personality disorders would be different as they are pervasive patterns of coping and form your personality. They are not considered a mental illness. SA could be used.

This has been bugging me since Sherry West's daughter spoke out about her mother's mental illness.

It is scary that North Korea can rattle their sabres. At what point do they go to the other side of being able to do something other than that? What about South Korea and all of the US military stationed there?

NK is an awful little country. And after all this time, I don't see it changing.

Trishapatk said...

Could there be a more confusing report than this one??? I often go to the comment section to find more reports on what is going one ... but the comments didn't hel me since they are about other things.
I don't get it, I don't know what to make of this.
Does anyone have any news reports that are more clear than this one? Or can someone fill me in and tell me where to go to find out the facts?

Those pics of 'lil' Kim standing in front of a map with all of the 'targets' marked on it made me think of those old Bugs Bunny/ Marvin the Martian!

Drone the North Korean govournment off the map already and reunify Korea.....

Anonymous said...

I like the pic of Kim pointing in the distance --- as if to say "point the rocket over there." Because we all know eyeing it is the best way to hit a target half way around the world.

The US has antimissile systems in South Korea, there are antiballistic missile systems in Japan and China and US mainland (Hawaii), anything North Korea launches will be immediately destroyed in the air over North Korea, thus destroying North Korea's infrastructure and people

The answer to your first question is, I think, when we send them enough money to do so.

I remember not to long ago we sent/gave them 100 million dollars in humanitarian aid for a promise from them to stop or curtail their nuclear ambitions.

Original Chipmunk and Sus,
Good question about schitzophrenia, Sus.
Chipmunk, I wonder about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. If the victim has been traumatised to an extent that causes PTSD, and they are experiencing a flashback, they may well talk about what happened in pesent tense. They feel as if it's happening again. In the example, the man talks in present tense (I’m freaking out because I’m ...). I don't think he had PTSD, but what happened to him could have been so traumatic that he felt as if he was re-living it.

I think I saw a pin on 'Maine' on that map. Take cover!

Anonymous said...

Look closer he changes tense mid-story. Then he changes back to past tense. I doubt she burned him with the oatmeal.

Anonymous said...

Also, if you take out the part about the oatmeal. The stories match just not in the right order. I think he attacked her and burned himself while she was unconscious. People are known to forget a few minutes of time if they sustain s concussion.

Personally, Lemon, we prefer colanders around these parts. Whoever in NC owns one..most pour the s'ketti through hog wire.

Regards the oatmeal couple:

Good point on changing tense - they both change tense, for that matter.

I need a decoder ring for this post... @ME who is Christopher gaylord besides the guy who said he was in the media?

I hope this little prick uses an anvil instead of a rocket. What an ass. I'm a little man with short man syndrome and want to intimidate and terrorize a massive and powerful government because of my phallic insufficiencies and delusions of 'gland-eur.' So I' going to hit them with this awesome rocket I made out of sheeps wool and chicken eggs on Minecraft!

Jen said...

Peter-lol...I love foghorn-leghorn, and my 3yo prefers the old Tom &Jerry cartoons w/o dialogue to any of the new nickelodeon set. He squeals and giggles at the mouse getting the best of the cat, and never fails to point out how naughty they are for fighting and hitting.

It's just too bad that now when I think of Foghorn, I also think of Cheney Mason :-(
