The Kim train has left the station. Glad to see that both leaders are in full agreement about the domestic US situation. Can't wait to see which provocative measures Trump will terminate this time. :D

'Chilling the atmosphere': North Korea media condemns U.S. Democrats ahead of summit
 
 
HANOI (Reuters) - North Korea’s state media criticized U.S. Democrats and American intelligence officials on Sunday for “chilling the atmosphere” ahead of leader Kim Jong Un’s second summit with President Donald Trump this week.
 

After weeks of silence about the summit in Vietnam, North Korea’s state news agency KCNA on Sunday announced Kim’s departure by train, en route to talks in which the two leaders aim to build on a commitment to rid the Korean peninsula of nuclear weapons, reached at their first meeting in Singapore in June.

 

KCNA later issued a commentary arguing that if Trump listened to skeptics at home, he could face a “shattered dream” and “miss the rare historic opportunity” to improve relations with North Korea.

 

“The Democratic Party of the U.S. and other opponents to the negotiations move overtly and covertly to disrupt them as supported by scepticism backed by all sorts of groundless stories and misinformation even at such a crucial moment as now,” said the commentary, which was released under the name Jong Hyon.

 

Trump’s opponents would bear the responsibility if the summit failed to achieve results, which would leave the U.S. people exposed to “security threats”, it said.

 

In some parts, the article appeared to echo Trump’s own recent talking points, which have blamed former President Barack Obama for taking the two countries to the brink of war.

 

Obama’s “strategic patience” policy was “the worst blunder”, KCNA said, arguing that Democrats’ scepticism of Trump was driven by a desire to cover up their failures.

 

“The Democratic Party seems not realizing itself lurching toward conservative, being lost to its own ‘authenticity’ at the end of getting indulged in opposition just for the sake of opposition,” the article said.

 

One U.S. government Korea analyst, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak publicly, said the commentary appeared aimed at softening Trump up ahead of the summit.

 

“If Kim facilitates Trump using the talk for domestic political gain, he probably thinks Trump will offer him more favorable terms,” the analyst said.

 

“If not offer more favorable terms, (Trump will) at least be less willing to walk away from the table. That would look like an admission that his critics were right all along.”

 

‘REASONS TO BE SKEPTICAL’
 

KCNA also singled out U.S. intelligence officials who recently testified to Congress that North Korea was unlikely to ever give up its entire nuclear arsenal.

 

“It is absolutely as foolhardy as expecting to see a chicken turning into a phoenix to expect proper comment from the U.S. intelligence agencies as they have it as their basic mission to claim white to be black and lie to be truth,” the article said.

 

The article also criticized an unidentified university and media for reporting on the North’s nuclear program and expressing scepticism ahead of the summit.

Probably to go here, as it is Japan Sea incident: Russian merchant ship "Partisan" owned by company previously accused by US to be breaching US sanctions on NK,  in south of Sea of Japan was hit by "mysterious explosion", resulting with two holes 6 meters above water level, in nose part of rthe ship, 40x15 and 30x45 cm in sise, looking like going inwards, not effecting ship mobility.

Looking like somebody fired warning shots by missiles, right in time of Trump-Kim meeting.

I think that very unlikely.

 

This is what a missile attack looks like.

It depends on what type of missile used and what ship is hit (there is next to nothing to burn on merchain ship cargo part, if not loaded)

The warhead on the exocet missile didnt explode, but the fuel on board was still enough to burn the ship out. The same thing happened on the USS Stark, the only difference was saved, probably due to better sea conditions. Nothing really exploded on either ship either. They just burned up from all the fuel igniting the internal fittings.

 

 

 

Its also difficult to understand why an antiship missile would hit that far above the waterline. Without seeing the internal damage, at this point it looks far more as if someone cut a hole in the side with a gas torch.

Both were military ships full of highly flammable material and very densely packed with all kinds of systems in (often) alloy shell. Mercian ship is next to empty steel box compared to that, nothing to burn.

Above is results of Russian P-35 missile (with inert warhead) hit into ship that strayed into firing range in April 2000.  It is normal altitude for missile

Second Trump-Kim summit coming up.

HANOI, Vietnam -- US and North Korean sides gathered in Hanoi on Tuesday, ahead of official events of the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un set to kick off the following day.

Kim arrived at the Melia Hanoi Hotel at about 11 a.m. (Vietnam time), having traveled from North Korea to Vietnam by train. The trip took about 66 hours from Pyongyang to Vietnam’s Dong Dang Railway Station.

Upon arrival, Kim was greeted by Vietnamese government representatives, and reportedly said that he was “happy and thankful” to Vietnam.

From Dong Dang Railway Station, Kim rode to Hanoi on his bulletproof vehicle transported from North Korea.

Despite media speculations, Kim did not make any stops en route to the hotel. South Korean media had speculated that Kim might visit a Samsung Electronics facility in Vietnam, or other industrial sites located between Hanoi and Dong Dang.

Kim is accompanied by his top aides including his sister Kim Yo-jong, vice chairmen of the Workers’ Party of Korea Kim Yong-chol, O Su-yong, and the North’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho. Kim Chang-son, a high-level party official known as the butler to the North‘s ruling Kim family.

The inclusion of O Su-yong, who doubles as the director of the North Korean ruling party’s economic affairs department, has been interpreted as an indication of the emphasis Pyongyang is placing on the economic outcome of the summit.

Kim remained at the hotel until he left for the North Korean Embassy in the late afternoon. Escorted by Vietnamese police, Kim arrived at the embassy at about 5 p.m. and remained there until 7:58 p.m. The North Korean leader was accompanied by his sister and Kim Chang-son. Kim did not immediately go to another schedule, returning to his hotel.

The two leaders are set to begin their two-day summit with a private meeting and dinner Wednesday. According to the White House, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and an interpreter will attend the dinner. Kim is expected to be accompanied by aides matching the US officials.

In all, Kim and Trump are expected to meet for five or more occasions, including summit meetings on Thursday morning and afternoon.

Heading to Hanoi, Trump again took to Twitter to express high hopes for the meeting, saying that North Korea has the potential to “rapidly become an Economic Powerhouse,” on the condition of complete denuclearization.

Trump added, “Chairman Kim will make a wise decision!” He later tweeted that he was looking forward to a “very productive summit” and told US governors that he expected a “very tremendous” meeting.

While Trump remains characteristically dramatic, working-level officials on the ground continued laying the foundations for the summit.

Pompeo, who arrived in Hanoi ahead of Trump, was expected to meet with Stephen Biegun, US special representative for North Korea. There were also speculations that the top US diplomat and Kim Yong-chol may fine tune the summit agenda.

Reports are now indicating that the damage caused to the Russian vessel was caused by meteorite hits.

 

Gunnery still has value at sea, as warning shots by missile can become costly in various ways.

A meteor hit would have to be on a sharp downward angle.

My guess would be that a non-Russian submarine or aircraft was practicing an engagement on the Russian ship and accidentally pulled a TWA800.  Warhead did not go off.

 

Has a ship ever been hit by a meteor?

Something happened to Russian ship! Clearly someone shot at it and it definitely wasn't caused by some kind of internal explosion or bad maintenance. Let's see what the damage looks like before blaming anything but incompetence.

Well, if ship didn't have GPS hacked to crack into some other shit, it definitely must have been a meteor.

See above, "Let's wait for photos of damage to show up."

But let me note that unfortunatelly this reasonable point of view not  exactly worked for USS Maine, USS Maddox and USS Vincennes.
