After six tests, the mountain hosting North
Korea’s nuclear blasts may be exhausted

Washington Post [US], by Anna Fifield

TOKYO — Have North Korea’s nuclear tests become so big that they’ve altered the geological structure of the land? Some analysts now see signs that Mount Mantap, the 7,200-foot-high peak under which North Korea detonates its nuclear bombs, is suffering from “tired mountain syndrome.” The mountain visibly shifted during the last nuclear test, an enormous detonation that was recorded as a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in North Korea’s northeast. Since then, the area, which is not known for natural seismic activity, has had three more quakes. “What we are seeing from North Korea looks like some kind of stress in the ground,” said

It´s now possible that one severe earthquake could take care of Kim´s nuclear problem for us without a shot being fired.

Former president Barack Obama answered a jury summons Wednesday, arriving at a Chicago courthouse to perform the civic duty asked of all Americans. The former leader of the free world was the only juror to arrive by motorcade, however, accompanied by tight security and met by a throng of news media. As a prospective juror, Obama -- a former law professor -- will join fellow citizens at the courthouse, waiting to see if he is chosen to serve on a trial. He will earn the standard compensation of $17.20 per day. Former president Barack Obama answered a jury summons Wednesday, arriving at

DONALD Trump has scrapped a surprise visit to the demilitarised zone (DMZ) near the North Korea border, it has been revealed. The US President was minutes from landing in a helicopter near the heavily fortified area but the plan had to be scrapped due to “poor weather”, according to the White House. The visit would have marked a historic step closer by Trump to Kim Jong-un with whom the Republican has been engaged in an escalating war of words since he took office earlier this year. The move comes amid fears North Korea could launch a deadly nuclear weapon during Trump’s South

A female journalist on Tuesday accused the Rev Jesse Jackson of groping her thighs during a picture-taking session three years ago. Danielle Young, a writer for the online site The Root, penned an article in which she alleges that Jackson touched her inappropriately while also making a crude sexual remark during an encounter in Chicago. ‘I walked toward Jackson, smiling, and he smiled back at me,’ Young wrote. ‘His eyes scanned my entire body. All of a sudden, I felt naked in my sweater and jeans. ‘As I walked within arm’s reach of him, Jackson reached out a hand and grabbed my thigh, saying,

Saudi mass arrests jolt markets but

RIYADH - All major Gulf stock markets slid on Tuesday on jitters about Saudi Arabia’s sweeping anti-graft purge, a campaign seen by critics as a populist power grab but by ordinary Saudis as an overdue attack on the sleaze of a moneyed ultra-elite. U.S. President Donald Trump endorsed the crackdown, saying some of those arrested have been “milking” Saudi Arabia for years, but some Western officials expressed unease about the possible reaction in Riyadh’s opaque tribal and royal politics. Authorities detained dozens of top Saudis including billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in a move widely seen as an attempt

Jarrett will turn 61 next Wednesday, and to celebrate she enjoyed a jam-packed weekend surrounded by friends and family that kicked off on Friday with dinner in a private room at TAO Asian Bistro in The Venetian.

A Saudi prince is thought to have been killed in a firefight while resisting arrest as part of the kingdom´s anti-corruption purge. It comes just 24 hours after another of Riyadh´s royals died in a helicopter crash along with government ministers. Local media in the Gulf are reporting Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd, 44, was shot dead by authorities trying to arrest him as part of the anti-corruption sweep. Former FBI special agent Ali H Soufan announced on Twitter the son of the late King Fahd had died on Sunday. It was also reported in The Duran, who said Prince Abdul Aziz was ´deeply

DONALD Trump’s Air Force One has arrived in Seoul as tensions remain high with North Korea. It comes as North Korea threatened “merciless retaliation” over Trump’s “foolish remarks” which the US President made earlier while in Japan. Speaking in Tokyo the US President had said: "We are working to counter the dangerous aggressions of the regime in North Korea. "The regime continues development of its unlawful weapons programs, including its illegal nuclear tests and outrageous launches of ballistic missiles directly over Japanese territory, are a threat to the civilised world and international peace and stability. "We will not stand for that: the era

Kerry warns Congress against

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday warned Congress that it would be "extraordinarily dangerous" for it to reject the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The comments by Kerry, who helped broker the Iran deal while serving under former President Barack Obama, follow President Donald Trump´s decision last month to decertify Iran´s compliance with the 2015 agreement. Kerry told the Chatham House international affairs think tank in London, according to the AFP news agency, that Trump´s decision "was clearly made without relevance to any fact whatsoever" and criticized the involvement of Congress. "It´s been flipped over to the Congress with instructions, you

Donald Trump will head to South Korea on Tuesday waving a red, white and blue cape in the direction of a North Korean bull who has a nuclear goring on his mind. And some in Seoul can´t wait for it to be over. Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in could hardly be more like a chili-oil-and-water mix, especially when it comes to dealing with the belligerent communist state that invaded southward in 1950 and has never stopped threatening its neighbor despite a tense armistice. The U.S. president has called dictator Kim Jong-un ´Little Rocket Man´ and threatened publicly to ´totally destroy´

Saudi Arabia has declared a missile attack on Riyadh by Iran-backed rebels an ´act of war´ and has accused Tehran of a ´blatant act of military aggression´. Tensions have been rising between Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia and predominantly Shiite Iran, which are locked in conflicts across the Middle East, from Yemen and Syria to Qatar and Lebanon. The crisis escalated on Saturday when the kingdom intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile near Riyadh´s international airport. The rocket had been launched from conflict-torn Yemen, in an escalation of the Saudi´s war against Huthi rebels, backed by Iran. The missile attack was the first aimed by

Orlando, Dallas, Las Vegas, and now Sutherland Springs. Each location has only recently experienced an unthinkable tragedy at the hands of a mass murderer and his guns. The latest, in the small Texas town, involved a man reportedly using a rifle to kill at least 26 people while they worshipped. Beyond these tragedies, which understandably seize the public’s attention, are dozens more in cities around America – nearly one per day. Still, Republicans leaders in Congress do nothing. Or, really, so far they’ve done the same thing they have always done: offered thoughts and prayers. Tomorrow, then, will surely bring

NY Post’s Goodwin sparks

It’s no secret that my favorite American columnist is the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin. So when he goes after The New York Times it’s obvious who I’ll be cheering, although it’s true enough that I’d cheer anybody who socks it to the Times. But Goodwin is special. He writes wonderfully. That’s number one. He’s an American patriot. That is also number one, and so is his advocacy for a strong Israel. He likes Trump… can’t stand Hillary…dismisses de Blasio as a total fraud. So the two papers see eye-to-eye on practically nothing. On Sunday there was no choice but for both papers
