2.9 magnitude earth quake detected in North Korea

GETTYNorth Korea say'The sanctions are a brutal criminal act

Congress was warned Thursday that North Korea is capable of attacking the USA today with a nuclear EMP bomb that could indefinitely shut down the electric power grid and kill 90 percent of "all Americans" within a year.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire", the statement added.

North Korea is re-launching threats against Guam. "If it goes ahead with another test in this area, it could risk radioactive pollution", he added.

USA military assets include the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan and two Arleigh Burke class destroyers, while South Korea will provide an Aegis destroyer, naval helicopters and F-15 k, FA-18 and A-10.

"Right now we think the threat is manageable", Kelly told reporters at the White House.

As the United States and South Korea prepared for next week's joint naval exercise, North Korean officials on Friday (Oct 13) renewed their threat to launch ballistic missiles near Guam, a USA territory in the western Pacific.

"Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us", Bannon said in an interview with The American Prospect.

After massive intelligence failures grossly underestimating North Korea's long-range missile capabilities, number of nuclear weapons, warhead miniaturization, and proximity to an H-Bomb, the biggest North Korean threat to the USA remains unacknowledged-nuclear EMP attack.

The magnitude 2.7 quake occurred about 34 miles northwest of Kilju, where the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site is located in northeastern North Korea, according to officials at South Korea's Korea Meteorological Administration. North Korea has claimed the test, its sixth and most powerful yet, was a hydrogen bomb. Several thousand North Korean workers have been working in Middle East construction sites, earning badly needed cash for their government.
