Trump highlights US nuclear strength as Tillerson urges calm over North Korea

10 Agosto 2017, 07:08 | Bibiana Flor

But BBC reported on Tuesday that North Korea is considering an attack on the U.S. military base in Guam.

"My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal", the president tweeted.

Facing the most perilous moment of his time in office, President Trump is gambling on his own instincts in a showdown with a rogue nuclear power.

In spite of the threat, there is no sign that an attack on Guam is imminent.


"They will fly 3,356.7 km (2,085.8 miles) for 1,065 seconds and hit the waters 30 to 40 km away from Guam".

Onodera declined to comment, other than saying that North Korea may have responded to the deterrent role played by a U.S. air base on Guam where strategic bombers are deployed. I'm heartened to see that our president - contrary to what we've seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors - will not tolerate any threat against the American people.

"They have every reason to believe the president is serious, and if they believe the president is serious how will they react?" he said, adding that the world's safety is at risk.

China, which is North Korea's closest ally despite its anger at Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programs, described the situation as "complex and sensitive", and urged calm and a return to talks.


"The (intelligence community) assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles", an excerpt of an unrelated analysis from the Defense Intelligence Agency said, according to the Post. A modernization effort started by former President Barack Obama is in the early stages, but the force is essentially unchanged from the way Trump inherited it on Jan. 20.

U.S. nuclear expert Siegfried Hecker, who has visited North Korea's nuclear facilities several times, told The Associated Press that he doesn't think North Korea currently has the weapons needed for "enveloping fire" around Guam, as it threatened.

Missile testing became a more frequent occurrence after Kim Jong-Un took power, with 2016 seeing the country undertake 23 missile tests.

US stock index futures are down, with the S&P 500 predicted to open 0.4 percent lower on Wednesday.


Ms Bishop says Australia has been in "constant discussion" with the US over the issue, but it wouldn't necessarily be drawn into conflict should matters escalate that far.
