'Fire and fury' not 'tough enough': Trump

GETTY SHOCK Donald Trump said earlier today any threat to the US would be met with'fire and fury

North Korea Kim Jong un nuclear missile strike US territory Guam

While Obama pledged billions of dollars to modernizing the arsenal, the program is in its early stages. Such a launch would almost compel the United States to attempt an intercept and possibly generate further escalation. It's a statement. It has nothing to do with dare.

With North Korea, the situation could be even worse.

Still, Trump said that "the people of this country should be very comfortable".

With all the sabre-rattling of North Korea and the prospect of the waters off Guam becoming a new testing ground for its intermediate-range missiles, the people of this tiny U.S. Pacific territory seem to be taking things in their stride.

Guamanians have served in all major U.S. wars since World War II and see military service as a source of pride.

The military would complete the Guam plan by mid-August and submit it to Kim Jong-Un for consideration, he said.

"We are watching them sort of take potshots at each other here", Van Hollen told MSNBC. Beijing and Washington have mostly been aligned, as in this past weekend's unanimous UN Security Council vote in favour of additional sanctions against Pyongyang to punish its continued missile tests.

Members of the small Korean community in Massachusetts are dismayed and worried as they watch the escalating rhetoric between the United States and North Korea, including President Trump's recent threat to bring down unprecedented "fire and fury" on the East Asian dictatorship. That factor should also weigh heavily on the president's mind.

Answer: No. It is "good cop, bad cop". Experts say the country likely has eight to 10 nuclear weapons. So far, we haven't read that.

For the truly nervous or those who can't afford short-term losses, one answer is to get out of the market altogether and forget it. Tokyo is 2,400 kilometers to the north, and Taipei is 2,700 kilometers to the west.

Trump's threat blindsided Tillerson while he was in Asia, according to officials familiar with the timeline. Since then, he counts "three or four" times when attacking Guam was mentioned as a means to target the west.

"We therefore expect this outperformance from the Bund to be susceptible to underperformance in the coming sessions, even if other 'risk off' measures stay unchanged", Mizuho's head of euro rates strategy Peter Chatwell said. Investor sentiment and positioning has reached extremes since then.

Answer: No one knows. That's a terrifying reality for South Korea, which lies just across the Korean Peninsula, but is less pressing for many U.S. residents.

"The way our infrastructure is built - an 8.3 earthquake a decade ago, powerful typhoons - they are well-equipped to coordinate both pre-event and also post-event", he said. "That is not helpful to our interests".

No American president before Trump did anything serious, much less effective, to deter Pyongyang.

The ARF, held in the Philippine capital of Manila on Monday, is a rare regional security gathering to which North Korea sends its foreign minister annually.

Making the threat of war on the peninsula credible.

Gold prices - which were given a boost by safe haven demand - trended lower, after the yellow metal traded around two-month highs overnight.

It's been an action-packed 24 hours in U.S. -Korea relations.

He says an announcement is planned soon. If carried out, it would be the North's most provocative missile launch to date.

It's not the first time North Korea has threatened Guam, which is a crucial, strategic hub for U.S. forces in the Pacific. The euro slid to $1.1732 from $1.1752. We shop and eat and drink together.
