Amid a productive phone call between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, Chinese state-run media reported that 150,000 Chinese troops went to North Korea's border.

Both China and the US have pushed back on the claims of troops massing, however.

International observers fear that North Korea may conduct another nuclear test this weekend on the anniversary of the founding of Kim Jong Un's regime, but the US has broadcast loud and clear that nuclear posturing in the Korean peninsula will no longer be tolerated.

Stuff's getting real now. If I was N Korea's Kim, I'd be fixin' to get out of dodge real quick.

When you say Dodge you really mean the planet. There is no room for him here on Earth.

Maybe getting out of Dodge via a bullet. Be nice if NK just became a garden variety dictatorship making less noise.

WoW, it's starting to sound as if PLA will be attacking the DRPK, not the USA.

China should just annex North Korea and be done with it. It seems like the best overall solution for everyone involved: China who could finally stop defending its little punk neighbor against everyone else in the neighborhood who'd really love to sock bastard in the face; the North Korean people whose lot in life is so unbearable that being under Chinese authoritarian rule would actually constitute a massive improvement; The US could pack up its troops and bring them home; and South Korea, while they would be very unhappy having China literally on their border, would probably prefer a stable authoritarian regime as a neighbor than an unstable one that constantly threatens to pelt Seoul with artillery rounds.

I'm seeing chatter that people in NK are being told to evacuate. Anyone else hear anything?

UK media sites seem to be indicating that.

Lil Kim apparently told reporters to expect a big and important event tomorrow. Hopefully bluster but he's a lunatic so who knows.
