Al Gore: Trump 'can't be blamed' for North Korean crisis

12 Août 2017

The battle of words between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is similar to the run-up to World War I, according to James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence.

Trump's comments came after North Korea conducted more ballistic missile tests and amid reports that the country can now fit a miniaturized nuclear device on a missile.

After threatening North Korea with "fire and fury" earlier this week, the president escalated the tension Friday with a tweet that the American arsenal is "locked and loaded".

Host Don Lemon asked about Trump's attitudes on the intelligence community and Clapper noted that it seems Trump waffles back and forth on it.

"So here's what I would assume, that if I fire one shot at North Korea, they're going to unleash all of their weapons against South Korea and Japan and our forces", he explained.

North Korea's weapons program has developed significantly since then.

Although Murphy comments marked a restatement of longstanding United States demands, Trump's statement earlier on Friday that U.S. forces are "locked and loaded" for a strike on North Korea appear to limit options available to avert a military confrontation. At a minimum, Pyongyang would renew its long-standing demands for an end to joint U.S.

Earlier, media reports suggested that the Pentagon had prepared a contingency plan to launch a preemptive strike against North Korea, which may involve USA fighters on Guam.

" Pyongyang in turn threatened to strike the U.S. territory of Guam in the Western Pacific with ballistic missiles. I mean, my understanding [.] is that's a pretty quick time frame".

"These types of comments are just disgraceful, never should have happened and the person who said that should be ashamed of themselves", said Brennan. The president told reporters at his golf club on Thursday, "We'll always consider negotiations".

Neither the White House nor the State Department commented on Yun's communication channel, and a diplomat at North Korea's United Nations mission confirmed to the AP only that the channel had been used to negotiate Warmbier's release. "The garbage in North Korea has piled up for 30 years".
