Japan to beef up missile defence system against N. Korea

Japan’s government on Tuesday approved the introduction of the US military’s land-based Aegis missile interceptor system, beefing up its defence against “serious” and “imminent” North Korea threats.

The regime in Pyongyang has fired two missiles over Japan this year and has threatened to “sink” the country into the sea.

Last month, North Korea test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that plunged into the waters of Japan’s exclusive economic zone.

“North Korea’s nuclear and missile development has entered a new stage of threat that is more serious and imminent to our country’s security,” the government said as it endorsed the introduction of Aegis Ashore at a cabinet meeting.

Japan needs to drastically improve its missile defence, Tokyo added.

Speaking later Tuesday at a lecture hosted by Jiji Press, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed to take a hard look at whether Japan’s defence capability is sufficient to protect its people.

“While keeping our defence-only policy as the basic premise, I will examine what our defence capability should truly be like while facing up to the severe reality for our country,” he said.

Abe argued that the UN sanctions on Pyongyang must be taking effect now and dismissed the view that too much pressure could trigger an “explosion” of violence.

“Thinking that way gives North Korea the maximum bargaining power… What is important is not to give in to North Korea’s bluff,” he said, vowing to keep imposing pressure until Pyongyang begs for dialogue.

Abe also sought cooperation from China to solve the problem.

“As the North Korean issue faces an important phase, the role of China is extremely important,” he said, adding he wanted to elevate relations with China to “a new level” by reciprocal visits and other exchanges.

– ‘Permanent vigilance’ –

Japan plans to introduce the Aegis Ashore system at two locations, covering the entire nation with powerful radars.

The deployment will hand the US ally another layer of defence in addition to SM-3 guided missiles launched by Aegis destroyer vessels and Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) missiles.

However, it will take years before the Aegis Ashore system is operational, according to Japanese officials.

The contract is yet to be signed with the United States and deployment at two locations could cost a total of 200 billion yen ($1.8 billion), including the cost of building new facilities.

However, officials insisted the new system would boost Japan’s missile defence.

“Naval vessels need to return to their ports regularly for rest and refuelling, but if it’s ground deployment, we will be able to operate almost 24-7,” an official said.

“We can be on permanent vigilance even when signs (of missile firing) are hard to detect,” he said.

Japan is reportedly planning a record $46 billion defence budget for the next fiscal year in the face of the North Korean threat.

Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said this month the country also plans to purchase long-range cruise missiles from US firms with a range of some 900 kilometres (560 miles).

The move would be controversial as Japan’s pacifist constitution bans the use of force as a means of settling international disputes.

Pastor Whose Pregnant Wife Was Murdered in Their Home Remarries

An Indiana pastor whose pregnant wife was murdered during a home invasion robbery in 2015 has remarried.

Pastor Davey Blackburn, of Indianapolis, posted to Facebook Monday to announce his new union with a simple bible verse and a picture from his wedding day.

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah‬ ‭43:19‬,” the post read.

Posted by Davey Blackburn on Monday, December 18, 2017

Blackburn’s late wife, Amanda, was shot in the head during an attempted burglary when three men entered the family’s home through an unlocked door after Blackburn had gone to work.

Amanda, who was 12 weeks pregnant, was home alone with the couple’s then 15-month-old son, Weston at the time. He was not harmed.

Jalen Watson, 21, Larry Taylor, 18 and Diano Gordon, 24, were later charged with Amanda Blackburn’s murder.

In November, on the two-year anniversary of Amanda’s death, Blackburn announced his engagement to Kristi Monroy on his blog. He first spotted Monroy at this church.

In the blog post entitled, “I just popped the question… & she said yes!” Blackburn documents his story of grief after Amanda’s death, to meeting his now-wife.

“I realize for many people this may seem a bit soon and trust me, it did to me as well,” Blackburn wrote.

In August, Blackburn and Monroy spent a week with his family and a week with Amanda’s family. Blackburn popped the question to Monroy on Nov. 8.

Blackburn said Amanda’s dad had given him advice about his relationship.

“Davey, take it slow until you know she’s the right one. Once you know, go fast, and we’ll be right there with you.”

Rosselló, in his statement, admitted that the number “may be higher than the official count certified to death.”

“We always expected that the number of hurricane-related deaths would increase as we received more factual information — not hearsay — and this review will ensure we are correctly counting everybody,” he added.

That widespread lack of power hindered critical medical treatment, likely contributing to the spread of disease and the high number of deaths.

A review by the Times found that 1,052 more people than usual died across the island in the 42 days after the storm. The leading causes of death in September were diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. There were also 50 percent more deaths from sepsis, a life-threatening illness that originates from infection.

There’s the possibility that many deaths indirectly caused by the storm might not get counted because of the way the bodies were handled.

Stephens’ body was then taken to a medical examiner’s office, where the gruesome details of the attack came to light.

“The first traumatic injury to her was to her throat and face,” Sheriff Agnew said after reviewing the medical examiner’s initial report. “It appears she was taken to the ground, lost consciousness, and the dogs then mauled her to death.”

“The victim had defensive wounds on her hands and arms trying to keep the dogs away from her, which would be consistent with being attacked while she was still alive.”

Trump Supporters Are Stepping Up Their Attacks On Bob Mueller And The FBI

The extraordinary attacks on the FBI and of Mueller ― a well-respected former law enforcement leader who is also a registered Republican ― appear intended to set the stage for Trump to fire the special counsel, whose team has already secured charges or guilty pleas from four Trump associates.

“Not looking good. It’s not looking good,” Trump said. “My people are very upset about it. I can’t imagine there’s anything on ’em, frankly, because as we said, there’s no collusion. There’s no collusion whatsoever. A lot of lawyers thought that was pretty sad.”

Trump’s transition team had claimed in a letter to members of Congress that the General Services Administration, which hosted email services for the transition team, had “unlawfully produced… private materials, including privileged communications” to the Mueller team.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, said in a statement to HuffPost and other outlets that the special counsel team had “secured either the account owner’s consent or appropriate criminal process” when they obtained emails in the course of a criminal investigation.

Suicide bombers attack church in Pakistan, killing 9

QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — Two suicide bombers struck a church in Pakistan on Sunday, killing nine people and wounding more than 50 others, authorities said, in the first attack on a church claimed by the country’s Islamic State group affiliate.

Hundreds of worshippers were attending services ahead of Christmas when the bombers appeared in the city of Quetta and clashed with security forces. One assailant was killed at the church entrance. The other made it inside, said Sarfaraz Bugti, home minister for the southwestern Baluchistan province.

Baluchistan Police Chief Moazzam Ansari praised the response of security forces guarding the church, saying the attacker who made it inside was wounded and unable to reach the main building.

“Otherwise the loss of lives could have been much higher,” he told reporters.

Quetta Police Chief Abdur Razzaq Cheema said a search was underway for two suspected accomplices who escaped.

Local television showed ambulances and security patrols racing to the scene as women and children were being led out of the church’s main gate.

The Islamic State group later claimed responsibility for the attack on their Aamaq news agency, saying two “plungers” from their group had stormed the church, without providing further details.

It was the first time the Islamic State group has claimed an attack on a church in Pakistan, though Muslim extremists have claimed church attacks in the past. The deadliest example was in September 2013, when twin suicide bomb blasts killed 85 people in a Peshawar church. In March 2015, two suicide bombers attacked two churches in the eastern city of Lahore, killing 15 people.

Fifty-seven people were wounded in the latest attack, including seven who were listed in critical condition, according to Wasim Baig, a spokesman for Quetta’s main hospital.

A young girl in a white dress sobbed as she recounted the attack to Geo television, saying many people around her were wounded.

Aqil Anjum, who was shot in his right arm, told The Associated Press he heard a blast in the middle of the service, followed by heavy gunfire.

“It was chaos. Bullets were hitting people inside the closed hall,” he said.

Dozens of Christians gathered outside a nearby hospital to protest the lack of security. Pakistan’s president and other senior officials condemned the attack.
