North Korea's Kim to Trump It's your move

Calling it "the responsibility of all", Macron called on the worldwide community to "act in a concerted, firm and effective manner, as it has just done in the (U.N.) Security Council, to bring North Korea back to the path of dialogue". It quoted Kim as saying he would watch what he called the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" a little more before deciding whether to order a test. "North Korea raising tension (on the Peninsula) is a serious challenge against the South Korean-US alliance and the worldwide community".

Discussing the escalating war of words between the USA and North Korea over the latter's rogue nuclear program, Ellison raised eyebrows by saying the North Korea's despotic leader was acting better than the US president.

Guam was claimed by Spain in 1565 and became a USA territory in 1898 during the Spanish-American War.

SPY satellites have observed North Korea moving a missile into position for a possible launch, with the United States saying its forces are on high alert.

"I've seen no intelligence that would indicate that we're in that place today", Pompeo told "Fox News Sunday".

They said this about George W. Bush, and they say this now about Donald Trump. A THAAD battery includes a truck-mounted launcher, tracking radar, interceptor missiles and an integrated fire-control system. This is backed up by a long-range radar, hailed as the world's most advanced mobile radar.

In an editorial, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the US "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK".

Aegis is able to track 100 missiles simultaneously and fire interceptors to take out an enemy's ballistic projectiles. The air base was built in 1944, when the US was preparing to send bombers to Japan during World War II.


He said there was also the risk THAAD would fail to destroy the missile, which would call into question the reliability of missile defence during a conflict situation. -North Korean relations and Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the source said.

Abe says: "I will do everything, to the best of my ability, to protect the safety and property of the Japanese people".

Dr Graham also pointed out Kim said he will respond only if the U.S. does not de-escalate the situation.

These actions included a total ban on the shipping of North Korean goods, the suspension of North Korean commercial licenses, discontinuing North Korean work visas, ending remittances from North Korean workers, blocking North Korean loans from Kuwait's state bank, and a total ban on direct flights to and from North Korea, a restriction that was first issued previous year.

Japanese shares rebounded on Tuesday morning, as fears of military conflict between the U.S. and North Korea appeared to recede.

The North followed the May launch with two flight tests of its Hwasong-14 ICBM last month.

North Korea's military said last week that it would finalise by mid-August its detailed plan to test-fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles in an "enveloping fire" around Guam and report it to its leader for approval.

He said North Korea had threatened Guam - a USA territory that hosts two large military bases and is home to more than 6,000 military personnel - at least three times since 2013.


President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un may be dominating the news right now with a looming threat of all-out war, but it certainly isn't keeping the internet from poking a bit of fun at the two superpowerful men. Secretary of Defense James Mattis, meanwhile, issued his own, much tougher statement.

"This is a pretty accurate statement from the Secretary of Defence, it's 101 self defence", he said.

Guam resident Susan Olivares Uncangco said she saw it and then "freaked out". Much like Trump's threats, this policy is meant to deter North Korea, but it is more likely to fuel a rapid escalation of conflict.

"But the thing to remember is this will ultimately lead to its destruction".

According to Mattis, the Pentagon would know "within moments" if a missile launched by the DPRK was headed for US territory, including Guam.

Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim had examined plans to fire missiles near Guam, but made no move towards an immediate strike. The response, reported in North Korean state-run media, was a pledge that "strategic steps accompanied by physical action will be taken mercilessly with the mobilization of all [North Korea's] national strength".

If the United States and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.

Moon Jae-in, a liberal who favors engagement with the North, delivered a nationally televised speech Tuesday on the anniversary of the end of World War II and the Korean Peninsula's liberation from Japanese colonial rule.


Moon said the North could create conditions for talks by stopping nuclear and missile tests.
