AMID global concerns about North Korea’s threats of nuclear war, China has unveiled a next-generation nuclear weapon that is said to be able to strike “anywhere in the world”.

The nuclear warhead, called the Dongfeng-41, will be capable of reaching distances of at least 12,000km — putting the US well into the line of target. With a speed of up to Mach 10 (around 12,000kph), it can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads.

The ballistic missile is said to be about 15 metres long, 2 metres in diameter and weighs approximately 30,000 kilograms.

According to the Daily Star, China has tested the weapon eight times in the past five years, with the latest test reportedly taking place earlier this month deep in China’s western desert region.

The weapon, which according to Chinese media will be able to hit targets “anywhere in the world”, is scheduled to enter China’s arsenal in 2018.

“It can carry up to 10 nuclear warheads, each of which can target separately,” Missile expert Xu Guangyu, a senior adviser of the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association told China Central Television, reports

“Once the Dongfeng-41 goes into service, China’s ability to protect its own safety and to prevent wars would greatly increase.”

The missile will also be able to use decoy devices to make its way through other defence systems.

Military analyst Song Zhongping, a former member of the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force, believes it’s possible the Dongfeng-41 is already in service, as tests can be conducted after the weapon has been commissioned.

The Global Times reported that China, which claims to have an arsenal of up to 2500 missiles, “does not have an arms race agenda and will not compete with any country for any such purpose”.

New Jersey #1 Disaster State: The Sixth Seal (Rev 6:12)

Disasters can happen anywhere and at any time. But some places experience more than their fair share of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, winter storms and severe weather — so much so that certain locales earn frightening nicknames, such as Tornado Alley. No matter where you live, make sure you have the right kinds and necessary amounts of insurance coverage to protect your finances.

  • Estimated property damage (2006-2013): $26.4 billion
  • Most frequent disasters: damaging wind, winter storms, floods and flash floods
  • Weather-related fatalities (2006-2013): 87

New Jersey earns the top spot on this list, in large part due to damage wrought by Sandy — which had weakened from a hurricane to a post-tropical cyclone by the time it the Jersey Shore — in October 2012. The state was among the hardest hit by Sandy, which was the second-costliest storm in U.S. history, after Hurricane Katrina. Many homes and businesses were destroyed along the Jersey Shore, and a portion of the Atlantic City Boardwalk washed away. Shortly after Sandy hit, another storm brought wet snow that caused more power outages and damage.

Homeowners who live along the coast or in areas where there are frequent storms should take steps before hurricane season begins to protect their homes and finances from damage.

North Korea Expected to Launch Nuclear Missile

North Korea Expected to Test a Missile Loaded With a Live Nuclear Weapon in 2018

Experts have warned that if North Korea continues to further its weapons program at the rate it achieved this year, 2018 will likely see the test of a missile loaded with a live nuclear weapon.

Shea Cotton, a research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, told The Washington Post that the device, which he called the “Juche bird,” will probably be tested over the Pacific Ocean.

“A lot of folks in the U.S. have said North Korea still lacks the capability to put it all together,” Cotton told the Post. “North Korea has made several statements suggesting they think they might need to show us once and for all that they do have that capability.”

No one is sure whether North Korea can make a thermonuclear device small enough to pack into a missile. “I believe we have to assume it can,” James M. Acton, a physicist and co-director of the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, told The Washington Post shortly after the gigantic nuclear weapons test that took place on September 3.

That test dwarfed all the ones that preceded it. Most experts agreed the bomb’s yield was at least 140 kilotons, and some claimed it neared 250 kilotons. For comparison, the biggest weapon North Korea tested before this year measured between 10 and 20 kilotons, reported The Washington Post.

If the higher estimate is accurate, that means Kim Jong Un has a bomb nearly 17 times more destructive than the one dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, according to the Post.

David Wright, co-director of the global security program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, went a step further and told the Post that the bomb tested on September 3 was a “real H[ydrogen]-bomb” just as Kim Jong Un said, suggesting that the days of underestimating the dictator should be long behind us.

In addition to the nuclear test, North Korea executed more than 20 missile tests in 2017. On November 28, the Hwasong-15 missile test confirmed what experts warned earlier that year: that the missiles would have a range higher than 3,400 miles. The enormous missile likely had a range of around 8,100 miles.

Saudi Arabia Ready to go Nuclear (Daniel 7)

Saudi Arabia Will Go Nuclear to Counter Iran Threat, Wants to Enrich Uranium

By Callum Paton On 12/22/17 at 7:36 AM

As tensions between Saudi Arabia and its regional rival Iran escalated, the Gulf monarchy said it would reserve its right to enrich uranium, which can be used in nuclear weapons.

Prince Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s former intelligence chief, told Reuters the country would not give up its “sovereign” right to a civilian nuclear program. He cited the deal Iran made in 2015 with the U.S. and other world powers, that granted Tehran a civilian program if it gave up its nuclear weapons ambitions, as justification for his stance.


In the coming weeks, Riyadh is due to have talks with the United States on nuclear cooperation, allowing U.S. firms to bid on a multi-billion-dollar contract to build the Gulf kingdom’s first two nuclear reactors.

Saudi Arabia has said it only wants the reactors for peaceful, civilian ends, but has remained elusive on the subject of whether or not it would enrich uranium to create nuclear fuel.

Faisal said that as Iran had specifically been allowed to enrich uranium, Saudi Arabia should be allowed to do the same, within the rules of the global nonproliferation treaty, “so the kingdom, from that point of view, will have the same right as the other members [of the nonproliferation treaty], including Iran.”

Ongoing sectarian conflict through proxies between Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia in the Middle East inflamed the region. In Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, the two rival nations have found themselves on opposing sides of an internal conflict.

The United States said it believed Iran was responsible for a missile attack Tuesday on Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the attack on the Saudi capital bore “all the hallmarks of previous attacks using Iranian-provided weapons.”

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud described Iran’s supply of rockets to Shiite Houthi rebels backed by Iran as “direct military aggression” that could be an act of war.

In October, President Donald Trump refused to certify the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, calling the country a sponsor of international terror. Before he took office and since he arrived in the White House, Trump has been deeply critical of the deal.

Haley said the U.N. must work to counter the perceived threat from Iran, floating the possibility of further sanctions against Tehran.

“We must all act cooperatively to expose the crimes of the Tehran regime and do whatever is needed to make sure they get the message. If we do not, then Iran will bring the world deeper into a broadening regional conflict,” she told the U.N.’s Security Council.
