North Korea begins events to sing praises of ruling Kim family

17 Août 2017

Trump, vacationing at his New Jersey golf resort earlier took to Twitter to warn North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that USA "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

News agencies quoted him as saying he would observe the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees" a little more before deciding whether to order a test launch.

Tenorio said "we're happy that he has taken a look at their plans" and appears to be holding off on a launch.

Homeland Security in Guam said on Friday that a public warning system in place that would alert residents of the island of 160,000 people that a missile is incoming.

Japan's government chose to deploy its Patriot missile defence system to four locations in the west of the country, media reported.

On Tuesday, China, North Korea's closest diplomatic ally, urged Washington and Pyongyang to "put the brakes" on all provocative actions and statements.

Not surprisingly, analysts have compared the standoff between the two nuclear powers (the North is a recent, if untested, member of this club) to a modern day Cuban Missile crisis.

"Any attack will be defeated, and any use of nuclear weapons will be met with an effective and overwhelming response", they wrote.

North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile last month for the first time, and USA intelligence agencies assess that Pyongyang can build a nuclear warhead small enough to fit atop a long-range missile, although it's not clear if it can target US cities.

"Kim Jong-un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader", said Ellison.

Like-for-like sales dropped 1.9 per cent to £3.1bn, which it blamed on seasonal performance at B&Q down 11 per cent. It said the poor performance would continue in the short term as Bunnings restructured the business.

Moon said North Korea must stop issuing menacing statements and provocations.

Most of the experts we've heard from agree there is no good outcome for the USA if war should ever break out with North Korea.

South Korean leader President Moon Jae-in said the nuclear crisis must "absolutely be solved peacefully" and warned that United States military action requires Seoul's consent. "The (South Korean) government and the US government don't have a different position on this".

The office of South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said military options would be used if diplomatic and economic sanctions fail.

In August 2015, 1 million North Koreans offered to enlist or re-enlist in the army when a mine exploded in the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas, raising additional tensions.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reviewed his military's plans to rain "an enveloping fire" around the USA territory of Guam - but opted not to fire missiles at this time, according to state media.

North Korea reiterated its threats on Monday, with its official KCNA news agency saying "war can not be blocked by any power if sparks fly due to a small, random incident that was unintentional".

He said he would order the launches to go ahead if the "Yankees persist in their extremely unsafe, reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity", and that the United States should "think reasonably and judge properly" to avoid shaming itself, the news agency said.

If necessary, "we'll take it out", Mattis said, suggesting the USA military would attempt to shoot it down with anti-missile interceptors on land and ships. The Northern Viper drills are one of the scheduled exercises that Japan's Self Defense Forces conducts regularly with their US counterparts and are not a response to the latest tensions.
