anonymous asked:

You prolly get this a lot but who has the strongest military muscle in the world and why? Can you rank them ?

The US, because just look at them:

As for the ranking, it would be something like this, for me:

  1. United States of America
  2. People’s Republic of China
  3. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
  4. French 5th Republic
  5. Republic of India
  6. State of Japan
  7. Republic of Korea
  8. Federal Republic of Germany
  9. Islamic Republic of Pakistan 
  10. Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Nukes, number of troops and quality of equipment are the main factors in my eyes. 

Secretary Tillerson's Call With Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida


May 16, 2017

The below is attributable to Spokesperson Heather Nauert:

On May 15, Secretary Tillerson spoke with Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida to discuss the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK’s) May 13 ballistic missile test. Secretary Tillerson reaffirmed our ironclad commitment to stand with our allies. Both Secretary Tillerson and Foreign Minister Kishida agreed that the DPRK’s latest provocation served as another call for all nations to impose far stronger sanctions against the DPRK. Secretary Tillerson also stressed the need to deepen U.S.-Japan-Republic of Korea trilateral cooperation in the face of the DPRK’s provocative weapons programs.

Idiots like to call National Socialism Socialist and to that I always say that Nazi Germany is as much of a socialist nation are as much North Korea is a Democratic People's Republic.


The Nazis represented the right wing of German politics of the time, with the SocDems and Communists in the center and left.

Even if you compare it to global and theoretical politics, the Nazi party was, at best, centrist economically, if not slightly right of center.

85 years ago today, on the 25th of April, 1932, Kim Il-Sung and other Korean communist exiles in China founded an army to liberate the Korean nation from the yoke of Japanese colonization.

During the Second World War, this army had fought alongside the Chinese and Soviet red armies against the forces of Japanese imperialist occupation. After the Liberation of Korea in 1945 and the establishment of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in 1948, the this army of liberation was adopted a new name - The Korean People’s Army.

Since 1950, the Korean People’s Army has been fighting against the fascist regime of South Korea and the US imperialist forces. Up to this day, the Korean People’s Army remains the most important defense of the Korean working classes against the counter-revolutionary forces of imperialist aggression.

Happy Military Foundation Day, comrades!

Joint Statement by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats

Media Note

Office of the Spokesperson

Washington, DC

April 26, 2017

Past efforts have failed to halt North Korea’s unlawful weapons programs and nuclear and ballistic missile tests. With each provocation, North Korea jeopardizes stability in Northeast Asia and poses a growing threat to our Allies and the U.S. homeland.

North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons is an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority. Upon assuming office, President Trump ordered a thorough review of U.S. policy pertaining to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (D.P.R.K.).

Today, along with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford, we briefed Members of Congress on the review. The President’s approach aims to pressure North Korea into dismantling its nuclear, ballistic missile, and proliferation programs by tightening economic sanctions and pursuing diplomatic measures with our Allies and regional partners.

We are engaging responsible members of the international community to increase pressure on the D.P.R.K. in order to convince the regime to de-escalate and return to the path of dialogue. We will maintain our close coordination and cooperation with our Allies, especially the Republic of Korea and Japan, as we work together to preserve stability and prosperity in the region.

The United States seeks stability and the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We remain open to negotiations towards that goal. However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our Allies.

Military Parade in Socialist Korea: 105th Anniversary of Kim Il Sung

Pyongyang, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, April 15, 2017

Kim Jong Un.

Kim Jong-un is the Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea. Kim is the second child of Kim Jong-il. Kim Jong-un became the supreme leader of North Korea in 2011, succeeding his father Kim Jong-il. The state of North Korea. North Korea is extremely media-silenced meaning that no-one knows what life is like in its borders. All that is known is that the space between North and South Korea is known as the Demilitarized Zone and is heavily fortified by Korean forces.

Tensions between North Korea and America have always been high. However, these tensions have been heightened after Trump’s bombings of Syria. North Korea has an advantage in that the state is very secretive, meaning that not much is known about the dominance of their military, only that they have nuclear capability, which could potentially decimate America’s West Coast.

North Korea: Trump's 'aggressive' tweets are 'making trouble' and we are prepared for war

North Korea has warned Donald Trump that it is prepared for war and is ready to use its “powerful nuclear deterrent”.

Vice foreign minister Han Song Ryol blamed the US president for building up a “vicious cycle” of tensions on the Korean Peninsula, saying that his “aggressive” tweets were “making trouble”.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press in Pyongyang, Mr Han warned the US against provoking North Korea militarily, saying: “We will go to war if they choose.”

He said: “If the US comes with reckless military manoeuvres then we will confront it with the DPRK’s pre-emptive strike,” referring to North Korea by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“We’ve got a powerful nuclear deterrent already in our hands, and we certainly will not keep our arms crossed in the face of a US pre-emptive strike.”

Speaking through an interpreter provided by the foreign ministry, Mr Han was calm and polite but forceful throughout the 40-minute interview.

Tensions are deepening as the US has sent an aircraft carrier to waters off the peninsula and is conducting its biggest-ever joint military exercises with South Korea.

Pyongyang, meanwhile, recently launched a ballistic missile and some experts say it could conduct another nuclear test at virtually any time.

“That is something that our headquarters decides,” Mr Han said of what would be North Korea’s sixth nuclear test.

“At a time and at a place where the headquarters deems necessary, it will take place.”

Many North Korea watchers believe North Korea could have a viable nuclear warhead and a ballistic missile capable of hitting the US mainland on Mr Trump’s watch as president - within the next few years.

Mr Han, however, said North Korea blames Mr Trump and the US for the rising tensions.

He cited not only the US-South Korean wargames and the deployment of the aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, but also a tweet Mr Trump posted on Tuesday in which he said the North is “looking for trouble”.

The president also tweeted that if China does not do its part to rein in Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions, the US can handle it.

“Trump is always making provocations with his aggressive words,” Mr Han said. “So that’s why. It’s not the DPRK but the US and Trump that makes trouble.”

The annual military exercises have consistently infuriated the North, which views them as rehearsals for an invasion.

Washington and Seoul deny that, but reports that exercises have included “decapitation strikes” aimed at the North’s leadership have fanned Pyongyang’s anger.

“As long as the nuclear threats and blackmail go on with the military exercises, we will carry forward with our national defence build-up, the core of which is the nuclear arms build-up,” Mr Han said.

“Whatever comes from the US, we will cope with it. We are fully prepared to handle it.”

Outwardly, there are few signs of concern in North Korea despite the rising tensions.

Instead, the country is gearing up for its biggest holiday of the year, the 105th anniversary of the birth of the late Kim Il Sung, the country’s founder and leader Kim Jong Un’s grandfather.

The Saturday anniversary may provide the world with a look at some of North Korea’s arsenal.

Expectations are high the North may put its newest missiles on display during a military parade that could be held to mark the event.
