Trump’s Got a Mega Bomb Designed to Hit North Korea

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un waves to people attending a military parade marking the 105th birth anniversary of country's founding father, Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang. Forget the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier that President Donald Trump claimed, wrongly, was steaming toward North Korea to punish Kim Jong Un’s regime for apparently testing a nuclear-capable ballistic missile last Saturday. Forget the U.S. Marine Corps F-35 stealth fighters that practiced bombing runs on the Korean Peninsula in late March. Forget the contingent of U.S. Army soldiers—part of the 29,000-strong American ground force in South Korea that Vice President Mike Pence visited Sunday, just a day after Pyongyang’s latest missile test failed. No, if the United States seriously intends to punish North Korea ...

Corbyn’s older brother says Labour leader will win general election by bypassing media like Trump

    General election 2017 Jeremy Corbyn will bypass traditional media outlets with the same degree of success that outsider-turned-president Donald Trump did, the Labour leader's older brother has predicted. In an interview with The Telegraph, 70-year-old Piers Corbyn hit out at the media coverage his brother receives, claiming that news organisations like the BBC are treating him unfairly. He added that he believes shy Corbynistas will come out in force to support Corbyn and deliver him the result he wants in the general election on 8 June. The BBC is evil and they will carry on being evil, Piers said. At every opportunity they criticise him [Jeremy]. Why? The BBC have never been so biased against any party leader as now. That is because Jeremy stands for something different....

Russian bombers again fly near Alaska

    For the second consecutive night, Russia flew two long-range bombers off the coast of Alaska on Tuesday, this time coming within 36 miles of the mainland while flying north of the Aleutian Islands, two U.S. officials told Fox News. The two nuclear-capable Tu-95H bombers were spotted by U.S. military radar at 5 p.m. local time. Unlike a similar incident Monday night, this time the U.S. Air Force did not scramble any fighter jets. Instead, it launched a single E-3 Sentry early warning aircraft, known as AWACS, to make sure there were only the two Russian bombers flying near Alaska, and not other aircraft flying underneath the large bombers. U.S. territorial waters extend 12 nautical miles from shore. U.S. Air Force scrambled F-22 stealth fighters; Jennifer Griffin reports fr...
