Is this why Kim is so ´unafraid´? North
Korea boasts the world´s deepest underground
metro system, meaning Pyongyang residents can
hide 360ft underground if nuclear war breaks out

Daily Mail (UK), by Julian Robinson

These pictures show the inside of Pyongyang´s 360ft deep metro system - that will double up as a nuclear bunker if war breaks out between North Korea and the US. Images show commuters using the world´s deepest underground train system which includes two lines with a combined length of 18 miles beneath North Korea´s capital. Construction work on the Pyongyang Metro started in 1968 and was inaugurated in 1973 by Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of current dictator Kim Jong-un. And while it is usually busy with commuters, the depth of the subway system means citizens could also use it as

Another thought - Unless the electric grid is underground, a few strategic hits to the electric grid, and they´ll be sitting in the dark freezing to death.

I seriously doubt that the US would use nukes to take out the Norks. Carpet bombing the gun emplacements and many well placed cruise missiles would leave the Norks defenseless.

This assumes that we can intercept any ICBM aimed our way.

Remember how quickly Iraq was shoved out of Kuwait.

Yes and we have deep penetrating bunker busters that can go deeper than 360 feet. Go ahead Lil Kim. Climb in and enter your permanent burial site. You might see a quick flash of light and a loud noise for an instant, then you will be encased in tons of pulverized concrete and steel and by then you won´t feel a thing.

Good comments above. Also, even if they survive the initial attack(s), what will they return to when they leave this imperfect bunker? What will logistics like food, water, and sanitation be like? This is the same dilemma that preppers and survivalists face worldwide. Will those living (or dying slowly) in this underground tomb ultimately envy those who died quickly above? Scripture warns of such.

The fact is that North Korea cannot feed it´s people above ground in normal conditions, they surely will not be able to do so underground.

Also, the North Korean economy is in tatters as it is. There is no way it could cope with a conventional weapon attack, never mind a nuclear one.

I visited the Cheyenne facility back in the 90s and was told that Russian ICBM payload reentry speeds combined with relatively simply hardened nosecones made its protection under the mountain basically null and void.

I guess if the North Koreans call saving everyone time and effort from having to dig a mass grave for their corpses a win I will concede that point.

When I was a little boy, I hunted woodchucks on our family farm with my 22 rifle - but my father would give me just one bullet.
I would plunk down near a woodchuck hole, and remain still and silent until the woodchuck came up out of his hole. Then I would shoot him. (I was the opposite of ADHD, I guess.)
I never missed.

Not a problem...if people can get down there so can massive amounts of water.

People are really stupid to think that being underground is safer...it´s a death trap.

AND if we want to make it more cozy we can add a high amount of anything that kills...radiation, poison, whatever.

Sounds great. In a war, all the party leaders and soldiers will go into hiding in the tunnels. The average person will be left outside because they don´t rate such protection.

All the rats will be in one trap.

If their grid is damaged, how long will the air supply last underground? Sanitation accounted for? If not, dysentery killed more people in WWII death camps than gas or bullets. Food supplies? Other than the military, the NK people have been starving for decades. They´ll be completely isolated underground because their means of communication will be one of the first things targeted. I believe Little Kim hasn´t thought this through.

Faith, Astrology, and the
Total Solar Eclipse
Breitbart California, by Joel B. Pollak    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 8/21/2017 12:13:22     Post Reply
The ancient pagan astrologers regarded solar eclipses as bad omens. So, too, did the rabbis of the Talmud, who warned in Tractate Sukkah, page 29a, that solar eclipses forecast ill fortune. But by that time, eclipses could be predicted. That raised a fundamental question about free will: how can eclipses be bad signs if we can predict them? The question the rabbis wrestled with was also familiar to St. Augustine, as well as other Christian philosophers. The rabbis’ answer was that Jews who kept God’s commandments did not have to worry about celestial omens. But many rabbis, especially the Kabbalists,

Sen. Susan Collins said Monday that it´s not clear to her if Trump will win the Republican nomination in 2020. "It´s far too early to tell now," Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said on MSNBC. "There is a long ways between now and that point." It´s almost unthinkable in modern American politics for an incumbent president to fail to secure his party´s nomination; there hasn´t been a serious primary challenge against a sitting president since 1976, when Ronald Reagan ran against Gerald Ford. But Trump is also unpopular nationwide, and has frustrated congressional Republicans with his political leadership. Collins faulted him,

The National Science Foundation is spending nearly $200,000 on an "implicit bias" conference. The conference will gather "leading experts on racism and prejudice" to write a report on how to make unconscious bias training, which assumes that "everyone is a little bit racist or sexist," more effective. "This project brings together experts on prejudice and discrimination to have a deep discussion and write up a report to understand what various measures of bias represent and best ways to measure implicit bias," according to the grant for the project.

President Trump will address the nation tonight from the Oval Office to announce his strategy for Afghanistan. Details are being withheld, but it is expected the president will announce an increase in American troops to counter recent gains by the Taliban and the growing strength of ISIS. Politico: The move comes after the dismissal Friday of chief strategist Steve Bannon, who voiced skepticism about an increased military footprint in the region and preferred outsourcing some of the duties to private contractors. Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser H.R. McMaster were said to have encouraged Trump to accept his

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.
