Russia and China blast U.S. missile test
August 22, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “Russia and China warned Tuesday that a new US missile test had heightened military tensions and risked sparking an arms race, weeks after Washington ripped up a Cold War-era weapons pact with Moscow.
The US and Russia ditched the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty this month after accusing each other of violating the accord.
Washington said the agreement also tied its hands in dealing with other powers such as China.
The US Department of Defense announced on Monday it had tested a type of ground-launched missile that was banned under the 1987 INF agreement, which limited the use of nuclear and conventional medium-range weapons.
‘The US has obviously taken a course towards escalation of military tensions. We won’t react to provocations,’ Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov told state news agency TASS.
‘We will not allow ourselves to get drawn into a costly arms race.’…” (Russia in Bible prophecy is the main instigator of death and suffering during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Ezekiel chapters 38 & 39, which I have proclaimed for sixty years, aided by Oriental and Islamic nations, bring total chaos and atomic devastation upon the world. Worse yes, it’s just ahead of us. Every nation I included in World War III is forming exactly as taught this global blood bath six decades ago. The only good news is that the Rapture precedes Armageddon – “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” – Revelation 3:10. Then our deliverance as believers – Revelation 4:1 and our joy because of missing Armageddon. See the next two reports.)
Putin vows ‘symmetric response’ to U.S. missile test
August 26, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday he has ordered the military to prepare a ‘symmetric response’ after Washington tested a formerly banned missile.
Putin said he had ordered an analysis of ‘the level of threat for our country created by the actions of the US and to take comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetric response’.
The US Department of Defense said Monday it had tested a type of ground-launched missile that was banned under the 1987 INF agreement, which limited the use of nuclear and conventional medium-range weapons.
Moscow and Washington ripped up the pact early this month after several months of accusing one another of breaching its conditions.
Russia and China have both warned that Sunday’s launch of the nuclear-capable Tomahawk cruise missile with a MK-41 launcher had heightened military tensions and risked sparking a new arms race…”
Pentagon working on 9 separate hypersonic missile projects to take on Russia, China
August 1, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “Earlier this year, the US Air Force announced that it was in a ‘race’ with Russia and China to develop new hypersonic missile systems, with the Pentagon saying it would use President Trump’s new ‘Space Force’ to try to counter Russian and Chinese advances in this area. The US expects to test at least two hypersonic missiles by the end of 2019.
In addition to the seven Pentagon hypersonic missile-related projects which have already been publically acknowledged, the US is also working on ‘at least two more’ similar programmes, and they are shrouded in mystery, anonymous officials have told Aviation Week magazine.
The precise nature of the new weapons is unknown, although the outlet discovered that they are represented by the acronyms ‘HACM’ and ‘HCCW.’ These clues were found on the LinkedIn profile of one Mr. Greg Sullivan, an engineer with knowledge of every one of the Defence Department’s other publically revealed hypersonic programmes…”
North Korea’s Kim oversaw test of ‘multiple rocket launcher’
August 26, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “North Korean leader Kim Jong Un supervised the test-firing of a ‘super-large multiple rocket launcher’, state media reported Sunday — further muddying the waters for any resumption of denuclearisation talks.
Pyongyang fired what appeared to be two short-range ballistic missiles on Saturday, Seoul’s military said, the latest in a series of launches in recent weeks in protest at US-South Korean joint military exercises, which wrapped up nearly a week ago.
Kim said the ‘newly developed’ system was a ‘great weapon,’ and expressed ‘high appreciation’ for the scientists who had designed and built it, the country’s official Korean Central News Agency said.
Kim added the country needed to keep stepping up weapons development ‘for resolutely frustrating the ever-mounting military threats and pressure offensive of the hostile forces,’ KCNA noted…” (A huge nuclear war is prophesied multiplied times in God’s Word. Revelation 9:14 – 18 depicts Armageddon: “Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” And Revelation 16:16 tells of the longest and final battle of the ages.

North Korea dismisses nuclear talks if U.S. ‘hostile military moves’ continue
August 23, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “North Korea said Thursday it has ‘no interest’ in dialogue unless Washington stops ‘escalating hostile military moves’, as a senior US envoy visited Seoul with an eye on reviving nuclear talks with Pyongyang.
Talks between Pyongyang and Washington have stalled since a second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi in February collapsed without an agreement.
The pair met again in June in the Demilitarised Zone and agreed to restart working-level dialogue, but those talks have yet to begin.
Meanwhile, North Korea has carried out several short-range missile tests in recent weeks in protest against annual US-South Korea joint military drills that it sees as a rehearsal for invasion.
Stephen Biegun, the US special envoy for North Korea who leads the working-level talks, arrived in Seoul late Tuesday for a three-day trip, and said Washington was ‘prepared to engage’ as soon as it hears from Pyongyang.
But a spokesman for the North’s foreign ministry dashed hopes for renewed dialogue on Thursday, attacking a recent mid-range cruise missile test by the US and plans to deploy F-35 fighter jets in the region as ‘dangerous’ moves that can ‘trigger a new cold war’…”
North Korea fires missiles, rejects further talks with South
August 16, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “North Korea fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles into the sea on Friday and launched a scathing attack on ‘foolish’ calls for dialogue from South Korean President Moon Jae-in, rejecting further peace talks with Seoul.
It was the sixth round of launches in recent weeks in protest at ongoing joint military drills between Seoul and the US. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has described the tests as a ‘solemn warning’ to the South.
Pyongyang has routinely expressed anger at the war games, which it considers rehearsals for invasion, but in the past has avoided carrying out tests while the manoeuvres are taking place.
The South Korean military said the projectiles were fired from near the city of Tongchon, and flew some 230 kilometres (140 miles) before falling into the Sea of Japan, which is also known as the East Sea.
They were ‘presumed to be short-range ballistic missiles’, an official of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told AFP, while further analysis was required to confirm that…”
Tokyo: North Korea aims to ‘break through’ Japan’s missile defense zone
August 28, 2019 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “Japan released more information on the North Korean missile that was launched on Saturday, when Pyongyang tested what it has described as a ‘super large multiple rocket launcher.’
Japanese Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said Tuesday the missile that flew in an easterly direction from North Korea’s coast, facing Japan, was a ‘new model,’ Yomiuri Shimbun reported.
‘There is a possibility [North Korea] is trying to improve the accuracy of missile attacks,’ Iwaya said, adding the North Koreans could be aiming to ‘break through’ Japan’s missile defense zone.
North Korea launched two missiles on Saturday. One projectile flew a distance of about 220 miles, the second launch reached 250 miles. Each missile flew at a ‘lower than normal’ altitude of 62 miles, according to the Yomiuri.
On Tuesday, Iwaya said there is increasing risk North Korea could be improving upon long-range missile technology, applying what the regime has learned from past launches, Kyodo News reported…” (China and North Korea are prophesied to be top contenders and bloody warriors during the battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Revelation 16:12 pictures Kings coming to the Middle East, primarily China and North Korea to slay a third-part of mankind in atomic warfare. Revelation 9:14 – 18 the Oriental nations from the East join with Russia – the leader from the North – Daniel 11:44 – for the most horrendous war in history. See the next report.)
Report: North Korea preparing ballistic missile submarine
August 28, 2019 — Israel National News reports: “North Korea appears to be preparing to test a new ballistic missile submarine capable of launching nuclear missiles, significantly bolstering the regime’s ability to conduct long-distance attacks.
Satellite photographs taken Monday of the Sinpo South Shipyard in North Korea show the new submarine with nearby cranes and support craft, suggesting the submarine may be in preparation for a launch test.
Last month, North Korea claimed that Kim Jong Un had inspected a ‘newly built submarine’ at the shipyard.
The new photographs appear to confirm the claim, say Joseph Bermudez and Victor Cha of Beyond Parallel, a research project backed by the Center for Strategic and International Studies…”
