North Korea knows it can't afford to go to war

Guam releases fact sheet for imminent missile threat: 'Do not look at the flash or fireball'

It was a response to U.S. President Donald Trump's unusually stern warning to the DPRK on Tuesday, when he said "North Korea (DPRK) best not make any more threats to the United States".

"Trump is driving the situation on the Korean Peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war, making such outcries as 'the USA will not rule out a war against the DPRK, '" KCNA said.

"So if anything, maybe that statement wasn't tough enough". "They have reached these very technical milestones, so it's not like we can stop them from reaching those milestones now", Dill said.

In comments made via state media, Mr Kim said Mr Trump was "extremely getting on the nerves" of his soldiers by making comments showing his "senility" again. "She's certainly not referring to the United States". -South Korea drills begin.

China is the DPRK's most important ally and trading partner.

President Donald Trump says the USA military is "locked and loaded" to deal with North Korea, ramping up the rhetorical brinkmanship.

As North Korea ramps up threats to unleash missile strikes, the United States has called on the UK to help them prevent nuclear apocalypse. "We have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what I'm saying because they're saying finally we have a president that's sticking up for our nation and frankly sticking up for our friends and our allies".

The exercises are an annual event, but come as Pyongyang says it is readying a plan to fire off four Hwasong-12 missiles toward Guam, a tiny island which is USA territory and major military hub.

"His view and the view of the administration is that the way to resolve the situation with North Korea.is through these economic sanctions".

The Global Times said China will "firmly resist any side which wants to change the status quo of the areas where China's interests are concerned".

Ahead of the trip to South London, boss David Wagner has spoken about how despite facing tougher opposite than in previous seasons, the mood at the club will not change.

Tension in the region has risen since the North staged two nuclear bomb tests previous year and launched two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July in defiance of world powers.

Terence Roehrig, a national security affairs professor at the US Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, said Trump's posture suggested he was trying to dissuade Kim from further provocations rather than setting the stage for a US military strike.

The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

Trump capped a week of escalating rhetoric with yet another warning on Friday that if Kim makes any "overt threat" or strike at a USA territory or ally "he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast".

North Korea has said it will within days finalise a plan to fire medium-to-long-range rockets towards Guam, where U.S. strategic bombers are based, along with more than 160,000 USA citizens.

Mr Trump agrees, saying "They should have had me in years ago. frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents". "I just wanted to call and say hello".

I'm going to choose to believe Mr. Trump is playing a game of chicken here, that he is trying to turn up the heat to a degree that even Kim Jong Un can't stand, and that Washington is trying to force some sort of negotiated outcome.

North Korea regularly promises to reduce Japan to "debris" in state-sponsored news broadcasts but these sabre-rattling claims have escalated wildly in recent days.

If I'm wrong, and this isn't just a bluff, then amid the devastation we will be left to contemplate how we went from leak to tweet to war. "Please say hello to the people of Guam".

TRUMP: You'll see. You'll see. It has a strategically located US air base, a Navy installation that includes a submarine squadron, a Coast Guard group and roughly 6,000 USA military service members.
