The Security Council Passed the Resolution
UN formally condemns Kim Jong-Dan regime, Taiwan, South Korean President Klignher, and A.R.S.E. The UN recommends that the international community secure remaining nuclear war heads. The UN also says it shall investigate secret alliances, impose sanctions on President Bekahlu of Taiwan, and will issue $40 million in aid
The US government would also like to alleviate the burden of our allies and set a world example in the acceptance of 30,000 refugees. The refugees will be admitted into the US after a rigorous process of “extreme vetting.” This will be a function of our Resettlement Support Center. This would entail:
* The RSCs collecting biographic and other information from the applicants to prepare for the adjudication interview and for security screening. Enhanced security screening is a joint responsibility of the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security and includes the participation of multiple U.S. Government security agencies.
* Officers from the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) then review all the information that the RSC has collected and also conduct an in-person interview with each refugee applicant before deciding whether to approve him or her for resettlement in the United States.
* All USCIS-approved refugees would then undergo a health screening to identify medical needs and to ensure that those with a contagious disease, such as tuberculosis, do not enter the United States.
* The RSC requests a “sponsorship assurance” from a U.S.-based resettlement agency that is experienced in providing assistance to newly arrived refugees. Most refugees undergo a brief U.S. cultural orientation course prior to departure for the United States.
* Those refugees who are approved by USCIS receive assistance upon arrival in the United States through the Department of State’s Reception and Placement Program – a cooperative public-private program made up of a number of participants.
The burden of the crisis has weighed heavily on our regional allies, and to aid them in the addressing the immediate needs of the fleeing civilians the US would like to provide $62 million dollars in humanitarian aid to the joint South Korea and Chinese Humanitarian Aid Stations. This funding will go specifically to the humanitarian efforts in the region; it will help cover the costs of
* Food and necessary utensils
* Medical Supplies
* Hygiene Supplies
* New born and Infant supplies
* Clothing needs

“We’ll all be dead before the Korean Peninsula is unified. This is a foolish war. Why did the US get involved, what is their to gain? I urge my fellow senators to start the impeachment.”
“The US did what it had to do… Had we not intervened millions more would have died…We are mourning the loss of life. We ask for help to send humanitarian aid!”
-Madam President Dorian
The Battle of Pyongbyon (not Pyonyang) continues to rage. The three engaged US divisions seem to be surrounded. Casualty levels are shockingly high. Current intelligence updates report up to 25,000 DPRK casualties; 24,000 rebel casualties; and 12,000 US casualties.
Sporadic artillery strikes continue to hit Seoul. At least one million civilians have fled the city to day.
A massive artillery duel continues along the entire DMZ. It is impossible to estimate how many civilians have died in the fighting (particularly North Korean IDPs trapped near Kaesong)
Wonsan is a smoldering ruin. Soldiers and civilians alike are in dire need of food, water, medical aid and decontamination assets.
Kim Jong-Dan is still at large. Aside from the four nuclear weapons found by Chinese units – and the one warhead detonated in Wonsan – all other nuclear weapons remain unaccounted for.
Oh, and at least 350,000 soldiers and civilians have been killed or wounded in the past week.
The Battle for Pyongyang finally ended on Day 20. Initial estimates suggest that the battle resulted in a total of 30-35,000 military casualties (20-23K DPRK; 12K PRC; Civilian unknown). Although Chinese forces technically control the city, there are still numerous pockets of resistance – many being led by DPRK special operations units. Kim Jong-Dan remains at large, although PLA CBRNE units have located at least four nuclear warheads.
The Battle for Pyongyang and Battle of Pyongbyon continued.
But the other action occurred in the West. At approximately 1030 local, as Russian troops neared the center of Wonsan, rebel forces detonated a 10 KT nuclear warhead. It was a surface burst, but the impact was still devastating. Approximately 125,000 civilians; 12,000 Russian soldiers; and 20,000 rebels were killed or wounded in the blast or by the subsequent fallout. The prevailing winds carried fallout to the northwest, where it caused several hundred casualties on Russian and French warships operating in support of ground operations. All 5th Army Group units outside of the immediate blast area have withdrawn a safe distance from the city and are in the process of decontaminating. They await further orders.
