Japan has detected radio signals suggesting North Korea may be preparing for another ballistic missile launch, although such signals are not unusual and satellite images did not show fresh activity, a Japanese government source said on Tuesday.
After firing missiles at a pace of about two or three month since April, North Korean missile launches paused in September, after Pyongyang fired a rocket that passed over Japan's northern Hokkaido island.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency, citing a South Korean government source, also reported that intelligence officials of the United States, South Korea and Japan had recently detected signs of a possible missile launch and have been on higher alert.
Asked about the media reports, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning told reporters the United States continued to watch North Korea very closely.
"This is a diplomatically led effort at this point, supported by military options," he said." The Republic of Korea and U.S. alliance remains strong and capable of countering any North Korean provocations or attacks."
Now a government source has claimed a missile tracing radar has been switched on at the unspecified base, the South Korean-based Yonhap news agency has reported.
“It’s true that active movements have been detected at a North Korean missile base,” the source is quoted as saying.
“Signs like those spotted Monday have recently been detected frequently.”
“We need to watch a while longer before determining whether the North is preparing a missile launch or gearing up for (its own) winter drill that starts Friday.”
A South Korean defence ministry spokesman declined to comment on the report, but similar reports from Tokyo have negatively affected its stock exchange.
The Japanese government is on high alert after detecting the same radio signals, sources told the Kyodo news agency.
One said: “North Korea might launch a missile within the next few days.”
“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”
The Japanese sources suggested the signals may be related to the North’s winter military training as satellite images have not shown any missile or moveable launch pad.
Satellite images of a North Korean naval shipyard taken earlier this month indicated Pyongyang is pursuing an “aggressive schedule” to build its first ballistic missile submarine.
North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un visited a new catfish farm northeast of Pyongyang this week in the latest outing to coincide with a lull in weapons testing, state news reported.
In September, the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test and staged an intermediate-range missile launch over Japan.
But tensions are expected to spike again as the United States and South Korea kick off a large-scale air force drill on Monday in a new show of force against the North.
The five-day exercise, Vigilant Ace, involves 12,000 US personnel and an unspecified number of South Korean service members flying more than 230 aircraft including F-22 Raptor stealth fighters and other cutting-edge weapons at US and South Korean military bases.
PREPARE NOW – DON'T WAIT
PRECIOUS LITTLE TIME TO PREPARE
I have been warning my fellow for months to prepare themselves. Now, I extend that advice to Canadians.
Given the ongoing shenanigans with North Korea, WAR PREPS are a smart idea because any attack launched from North Korea will be followed by additional attacks inside the US (and perhaps in Canada too), by "Sleeper Cells."
These cells will attack Electrical Grids, public water supplies, key highway bridges to halt the flow of food and commerce, key railroad bridges, to halt the flow of food and war-fighting supplies, Oil and gas pipelines to shut down our ability to keep warm or to travel or deliver supplies.
They will release chemical and biological weapons to take as many of us down with them as they can.
You and your family absolutely MUST prepare. You MUST have:
Filter Masks to protect from inhaling radiation particles or Chemical/Biological Weapons
Swimmer masks or waterproof goggles to protect our eyes from Nuclear/Chemical/Biological Weapons
A source of Emergency Electrical power: A generator, or an INVERTER to convert DC car batteries to AC electric, or Solar panels with batteries and an INVERTER.
Spare Fuel: For your car(s), Trucks, Emergency Generator fuel supply etc.
CASH MONEY ON HAND — Puerto Rico got hit by a hurricane and here we are over a month later, many banks and ATM's are all still closed and offline. Credit cards don't work. Debit Cards don't work. What few stores are open won't accept checks. CASH IS KING. Such will be the case nationwide in the USA if we get hit here by North Korean attacks. No cash? No nothing for you. Have some cash on-hand. Not to pay bills, but to rely upon in an emergency so you can survive.
Emergency HEAT. We are rapidly approaching the onset of Winter. You should have at least ONE source of Emergency heat. Perhaps a Kerosene Heater with spare fuel? SOMETHING is better than nothing. If war hits here . . . and attacks here in the USA are ___ LIKELY ____ you'd better have a way to keep warm if all the electric is out and if gas lines are sabotaged stalling your furnace.
Emergency Communications: Again I refer to Puerto Rico because it is an actual, ONGOING, situation and a prime example of how screwed-up things get when disaster strikes. People on that island can't get cellular or wi-fi, have no phones and no electric; thus cannot communicate with their loved ones. Don't be like them.
- Get yourself a CB radio ($29) and antenna for each car, and a CB radio and antenna for your house. CB does not require a license, is good for several miles and can keep you in touch with your loved ones during a disaster.
- Better yet, get yourself Family-Radio-Service (FRS) walkie talkies. ($15 ea.) They're only two watts, and the range is very limited (1/2 mile at most) but it will keep you in touch with family members nearby.
Make certain you have spare medicine to live on. Some folks take specific medicines without which they cannot live. For instance, one member of my family had a Thyroid removed due to cancer. That person MUST take a Thyroid replacement drug once a day. Without that medicine, my family member will die by day five of no medicine. Have a month or longer supply of such vital medicines on-hand.
Here's the worst part:
YOU MUST KEEP YOUR PREPS SECRET
The worst part of this situation is that you cannot tell ANYONE that you have made preparations. The overwhelming majority of people simply will not take _any_ steps to prepare. And when disaster strikes, they will come knocking on YOUR door, begging for help.
Many of you will find yourselves in a situation where people you've known for years, come begging you for food and you'll face a stark choice: Feed THEM, or feed YOURSELF. They had a chance to prep but didn't. They made that choice, they have to live (or die) from it. Only the strong survive. The weak and weak-minded do not.
If you make the mistake of bragging or telling anyone that you're making preparations, they'll stick that in the back of their minds and do nothing, figuring they can come to YOU when the SHTF. ANd if you make yet another mistake of actually giving any of them food, THEY WILL TELL OTHERS! You'll quickly find yourself totally swamped by desperate, hungry people.
HAVE FIREARMS and AMMUNITION You should have a firearm to protect yourself and your family. When the ignorant masses start getting hungry, first they'll _ask_ for food; then they'll come to TAKE IT. You had better be ready to fend-off these predators.

Time is of the essence. Once hostilities commence, things will get incredibly bad, incredibly fast. There won't be any time to cover your ass once everyone in the country is trying to cover theirs. Store shelves will be emptied in hours. Gas stations will be empty too (just like we all saw last month when Hurricane Irma hit Florida, and "the masses" waited until one day before to even THINK of getting fuel. Thousands of them found empty gas stations. Don't be like them.
If a hostile entity (like North Korea or Terrorists) were to release a Biological Weapon anywhere in the US, certain areas of our country (perhaps entire cities) would IMMEDIATELY be under QUARANTINE. No one in. No one out.
All businesses and transportation would shut down.
In order for _any_ Quarantine to be lifted, authorities must go through at least one 21 day period without any NEW infections. Most times, they actually need TWO 21-day periods. That's 42 days.
Do YOU have enough food at home to last 42 days?
If not, you're screwed. Because there won't be any way to get food delivered (all businesses are closed) and you won't be allowed out to try to BUY anything. So what then?
Anyone who thinks the government will somehow help them is an idiot.
You'd better think long and hard about getting yourself Emergency food, because if North Korea sees it's losing a war with us, they WILL release bio-weapons here in the US, and a lot of us WILL be Quarantined. Will you or your family be among those who starve?

PREPARE NOW OR DIE
No one can survive a direct impact of a nuclear bomb. But those close to an impact zone CAN survive; and so can those farther away . . . . IF you prepare to deal with the issues created by an attack.
In a nuclear attack, the immediate blast zone is totally lost. Vaporized. Nothing survives. Within 3 miles of the blast zone, windows are instantly shattered by the force of the blast – both the wind and the sound wave.
Disaster preparation has received a lot of attention in the recent past. In fact, people who live in every corner of the world prepare for various disasters such as famine and war.
