Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

There's no longer any reason to fear a nuclear attack by North Korea. The city of Chicago has told us how to survive it:


http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/08/...uclear-attack/

City Of Chicago Offers Advice In Event Of Nuclear Attack

August 10, 2017

CHICAGO (CBS) — What should one do in the event of a nuclear attack?

Not long ago, it seemed like an abstract question. That was before President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who have been escalating military threats recently.

Just today, Trump said his earlier warning about bringing “fire and fury” upon the communist nation may not have been tough enough. When asked what could be tougher, he said, “Well you’ll see.”

The threat of nuclear war is much scarier that the reality, as the New York Times notes in this report.

Still …

The City Of Chicago, as it happens, has a whole page dedicated to the topic on its website.

IF YOU ARE NEAR THE BLAST:

Turn away and close and cover your eyes to prevent damage to your sight
Drop to the ground face down and place your hands under your body
Remain flat until the heat and two shock waves have passed

IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE WHEN THE BLAST OCCURS:

Find something to cover your mouth and nose, such as a scarf, handkerchief, or other cloth
Remove any dust from your clothes by brushing, shaking, and wiping in a ventilated area. However, cover your mouth and nose while you do this.
Move to a shelter, basement, or other underground area, preferably located away from the direction that the wind is blowing.
Remove clothing since it may be contaminated. If possible, take a shower, wash your hair, and change clothes before you enter the shelter.

IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN A SHELTER OR BASEMENT:

Cover your mouth and nose with a facemask or other material (such as a scarf or handkerchief) until you know that the fallout cloud has passed.
Shut off ventilation systems and seal doors or windows. After the fallout cloud has passed, unseal the doors and windows to allow some air circulation.
Stay inside until authorities say it is safe to come out
Listen to the local radio or television for information and advice. Authorities may direct you to stay in your shelter or evacuate to a safer place.
If you must go out, cover your mouth and nose with a damp towel
Use stored food and drinking water. Do not eat local fresh food or drink water from open water supplies.
Clean and cover any open wounds on your body

North Korea, according to experts, currently doesn’t have the capability to launch a nuclear missile at Chicago. Although their ambitions to become a nuclear military power are unquestioned.

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

China officially announced their sanctions on North Korea

Here is the announcement on the Chineses Ministry of Commerce official Website

Quote:
Effective immediately, China will stop importing coal, iron, sea food, and other stuff from North Korea. This will be a major blow to NK's already crumbling economy. Not sure if this will push Kim Jong Un over the edge.
Will this make Kim behave, or push him over the edge?

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

I just watched two professors (one located in South Korea) discussing this very thing yesterday (I think) on C-Span.

While agreeing that Tillerson and Trump (along with other administration officials and Joint Chiefs) are sending mixed messages and that Trump's tweets could be very dangerous since the North Koreans parse every word, there was also discussion of the behind-the-scenes diplomatic efforts.

And discussion of how the increased firmness in the statements might be enough to motivate China into using its influence to reign in Kim.

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

That seemed to be John Oliver's take on it. North Koreans are very serious about what Trump says. You have to remember ... they're not part of our laid back snarky satire tweet culture. NK is mostly a joke us the USA. But the USA is not a joke to NK.

It's ridiculous that Trump is willing to taunt them in such a childish manner. But it's Trump being Trump.

At around 14:00, we get two samples of their propaganda. It's crazy.

North Korea Backs Off Guam Missile-Attack Threat
Kim Jong Un says he could change his mind if the U.S. persists in extremely dangerous reckless actions.

SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.”

I think China's sanctions had an effect.

Are you sure it was China and not Trump's tough talk?

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

Trump's tough talk (yankees persisted ) and the sanctions - will likely "make Kim behave"




- and he also could lose his cheese.

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

Reports out that North Korea fired missiles into the Sea of Japan -
North Korea launches 3 short-range ballistic missiles

"The first and third missiles at 11:49 a.m. and 12:19 p.m. failed in flight"
"The second missile launch at 12:07 p.m. appears to have blown up almost immediately".

Any update? Is Trump still taking tough, and is Kim still behaving?

Re: North Korea may have fired missiles

Well, North Korea just fired a missile that passed over Hokkaido in northern Japan. In the past they've just fired missiles that fell into the Sea of Japan, so this is new (and troubling).

Too bad for the Japanese. We are lucky that Kim still respects Trump.

Besides it's Trump here. Alliteration is more important than accuracy.
