The Trump administration says it has seized a N. Korean cargo ship that U.S. officials say was used to transport coal in violation of international sanctions.

Justice announced the seizure of the Wise Honest. The ship was detained by Indonesia last month with 24 crew members on board.

It came hours after North Korea fired two suspected short-range missiles in its second weapons launch in five days.

The two projectiles were launched from a base in North Korea's north-west and aimed toward the east, Seoul defense officials said. 

Experts said there was 'no doubt' that the weapons, which are said to have flown around 260 miles and 167 miles respectively, were missiles.  The decades-old Sino-ri operational missile base, 45 miles north-west of Pyongyang, is one of North Korea's longest-running missile facilities

MSM reports always sound fishy to me. Would certainly like to hear the other side of the story, which we mainly know--we were never serious about brokering a peace treaty with North Korea, but have continued to provoke them instead, never once showing an ounce of good faith. At least not that I'm aware of.

None-the-less, it is news. Research it further, of course. Maybe this video qualifies as the other side of the story?


I know the inevitable hollering for war that will no doubt rapidly begin.

Where's all the hysteria when the US tests its weapons? Don't buy into this nonsense war propaganda. The US is the aggressor, the maniac in the room who has already dropped atomic bombs, just across the pond from Korea actually.

I DON'T buy into it; that is why I publish little Quicklinks about this sort of thing, rather than ignore them totally; in any event, the missiles being fired is news and deserves to be aired publicly, not covered up for any number of reasons, none of which cut it with me.


The strangest one of all is that story about Trump asking the Prime Minister of Japan to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize.



Internet skewers Trump's Nobel Peace Prize claim Did the US ask Japan to nominate Trump for Nobel Prize? Jeanne Moos reports Japan's PM doesn't deny nominating Trump. #news #CNN #Trump.
