North Korean Weapon Test Demonstrates Pyongyang’s Resolve

The North Koreans said its new addition can protect the state like a steel wall, and that its development had been a special interest of Kim Jong Un's father.

The man was reportedly detained on October 16 for allegedly entering into North Korea illegally through China.

It did not specify when the USA citizen will be deported.

Chong Song denied reports that he was wanted for murder in North Korea.

If the North verifiably destroys all its nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, Washington should place on the table a massive scale-back of US forces on the Korean Peninsula as a sweetener - and perhaps even offer to withdraw all USA forces from South Korea - to show how serious our intent is.

Warmbier, a University of Virginia undergrad student, was medically evacuated from North Korea through the efforts of then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Trump Administration. After arriving here late Wednesday, they visited the Second Techno Valley in the Pangyo district of the city of Seongnam, just south of Seoul, the following day, and held a meeting with South Korean officials, including Gyeonggi governor Lee Jae-myung, to discuss various issues, such as pushing for joint business projects. Ongoing conversations continue to take place.

It is rare for North Korea to release an American detainee so swiftly.

Diablo Immortal Announced by Blizzard - The Action-RPG Goes Mobile
Blizzard's classic games division today announced Warcraft III: Reforged , a remastered and updated flavor of the old-school RTS. Blizzard also says the game has an active place in Diablo lore, taking place in the lull of time between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3 .

The KCNA report said, "After seeing the power of the tactical weapon, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un was so excited to say that another great work was done by the defense scientists and munitions industrial workers to increase the defense capability of the country".

Speaking on a condition of anonymity, a U.S. official confirmed to The Associated Press that Bruce Byron Lowrance was deported and on a flight back to the U.S. Friday.

The two Koreas agreed during their September summit in Pyongyang to significantly reduce military tensions along the border, and the North has begun deactivating artillery deployed along the skirmish-prone western shore, Seoul's defense ministry said.

Pyongyang's suspension of testing for nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles has been key to this year's rapid diplomatic developments and North Korean-US negotiations, and has been repeatedly praised by President Donald Trump.

Mattis was particularly criticized comments made at a joint news conference last month, when he said the US military's goal was to ensure the country's diplomats speak to the North from a "position of strength".

He was shot multiple times by his fellow North Korean soldiers, leaving him fighting for life with serious injuries before he was airlifted to a South Korean hospital, where he received emergency surgery. That mysterious formulation seems to imply---absurdly-that North Korea had somehow welshed on an obligation to fully inform the United States of its missile assets in advance of a negotiated agreement on the sequence and timing of the steps both sides would need to take to conclude an denuclearization agreement. Further, the IAEA says nuclear weapons are still being developed and recent satellite imagery shows at least one nuclear test site has been upgraded.

North Korea could use the charm offensive to pressure the U.S.to agree to remove sanctions without denuclearization.
