Coffins were moved to Panmunjaum in case the North makes the return happen.

"Identifying remains of U.S. war dead returned by North Korea will be tricky: experts"

“With no exception, every North Korean claim associated with human remains has shown to be false. For example, these 46 sets are actually fragments of more than 70 individuals,” the report said. Forensic analyses suggested none were American, the report said."

Sounds like its time to reschedule the war games and ramp up sanctions.

No, it sounds like growing understanding that maybe.... just maybe.... 'the great negotiator'... isn't.

North Korea as preamble?
Despite reasonable analysts scratching their heads, Trump got praise from Fox and his circle of synchophants for giving North Korea stuff they weren't even asking for in exchange for nothing.  I can't wait to see what he gives Putin.

A USAF C17 picked up 55 remains of soldiers who were killed during the Korean War and they have landed at Osan AFB and eventually they will de flown to Hawaii for forensic evaluation and Hopefully they can be identified.

A symbolic gesture that I hope leads to more tangible results.

Mostly though, I hope it brings some closure to at least some surviving families.

IF the remains are legit then the next step is to identify them,with 7700 soldiers MIA I hope there can be some closure.

New Zealand, Australia sending aircraft to help implement UN North Korea sanctions

September 7th, 2018

New Zealand joined Australia on Friday in announcing the deployment of maritime patrol aircraft to help implement United Nations sanctions against North Korea.

Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters and Minister of Defence Ron Mark put out a statement saying New Zealand was sending a P-3K2 Orion to patrol international waters in North Asia.

"New Zealand is firmly committed to an enduring peace on the Korean Peninsula.  We welcome the recent dialogue North Korea has had with the United States and South Korea.  However, until such time as North Korea abides by its international obligations, full implementation of the United Nations Security Council Sanctions resolutions will be essential," Peters said in his statement.

"New Zealand will coordinate efforts with partners to counter North Korea's maritime activities that contravene UNSC resolutions, in particular its use of ship-to-ship transfers," said Mark.

Australia's Defence Minister Christopher Pyne also put out a statement. His said Australia was sending two AP-3C Orions. Earlier this year the Australians sent a P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft to the area on sanctions duty.

The aircraft will be based out of Kadena Air Base, on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa.

Pyne said in his statement that Australia's deployment supported Australia's ongoing economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea. "Australia continues to work with partners to enforce sanctions to pressure North Korea to take concrete and verifiable steps to denuclearise."

Sanctions resolutions against North Korea were unanimously adopted and supported by permanent United Nations Security Council members.

Australia adds two AP-3C Orion patrol planes while New Zealand deploys P-3K2 aircraft to carry out patrols of international waters in North Asia
Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

North Korea fired two short-range missiles off its east coast early Thursday, South Korea’s military said, a move apparently aimed at increasing Pyongyang’s leverage in nuclear talks with the United States.

The missiles were launched from around North Korea’s eastern city of Wonsan and headed eastward before splashing into the sea, according to South Korea’s joint chiefs of staff. The first missile traveled an estimated 430 kilometers and the second traveled 690 kilometers, it said.

South Korea’s military says the second missile may be a new design, but that further analysis was needed. If the distances are confirmed, the second missile flew further than a May North Korean missile launch, which had an estimated range of 450 kilometers.

North Korea in May launched what appeared to be its version of the Russian-made ISKANDER quasi-ballistic missile, which, though short-range, is able to be maneuvered in-flight and is apparently designed to evade South Korean and U.S. missile defenses ...
... and a "new"(?) sub:

A new North Korean ballistic-missile submarine unveiled Tuesday looks like a remodeled old Soviet Golf-class sub.

Judging from photos and video clips released by state media, they have similar bridges and bows.

The Soviet Union deployed the Golf from the late 1950s until the early 90s. It was 98.9 m long with a submerged displacement of 3,500 tons and was capable of carrying three ballistic missiles.

In the mid-1990s the North imported one Golf from Russia that hardly more than scrap but did not dismantle it. At the time, the fire control system was missing but the missile launch tube was intact.

The Golf had a range of 17,600 km, long enough for the new North Korean sub to sail out and launch Pukguksong-1 missiles with a range of 1,500 to 2,000 km close enough to the U.S. mainland.

State media showed blurred or pixelated images of the back of the bridge where the ballistic missiles could be loaded ...
