Trump rips 'Mr. Tough Guy' John Bolton over North Korea, Iraq

North Korea fires unidentified projectiles toward East Sea

The timing would mean Pyongyang tested the weapon the same day as a testfire of twin short-range projectiles, hours after Pyongyang signalled was open to resuming talks with Washington.

Speaking in Beijing, the Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councilor Wang Yi, said China welcomed North Korea's recent "positive signals" on resuming talks with the US.

The document effectively reprised Bolton's long-held and hard-line "Libya model" of unilateral denuclearization that North Korea has repeatedly rejected and analysts said would have been seen by Kim as insulting and provocative.

Kim, who has suspended testing of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles while engaged in talks with the US, has given Trump until the end of the year to ease up on sanctions choking his state's anemic economy.

The previous seven launches have revealed short-range missile and rocket artillery systems that experts say would potentially expand its capabilities to strike targets throughout South Korea, including U.S. military bases there.

Pompeo continued: "I think President Trump would be very disappointed if Chairman Kim doesn't return to the negotiating table or conducts missile tests that are inconsistent with the agreements that they made when the two of them were together these three times".

Choe said she hopes the United States will bring "a proposal geared to the interests of the DPRK and the USA and based on decision methods acceptable to us". The 70-year-old had been one of Washington's sterner communicators on North Korea having previously called for preemptive strikes and tough measures on the denuclearisation process. DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.

Teenager Steals Her Parents' Credit Cards And Pays To Get Them Killed
Lake County Sheriff's Sergeant Fred Jones told local station WFTV, " The parents are good people, outstanding citizens ". A teenage girl in Florida has been arrested after allegedly attempting to pay two people to kill her parents.

Tuesday's launches were the eighth round of launches since late July and the first since August 24.

North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui said in a statement that the North is willing to sit down with the U.S.

In the past, Bolton has proposed using military force to overthrow the ruling Kim family and USA officials have said Bolton was responsible for the collapse of Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's second summit in Vietnam in February.

"What remains to be done is running fire test which is most vivid character in terms of the power of multiple rocket launcher", KCNA said.

KCNA also released photos of the test that showed a smiling Mr Kim, who has been on hand for nearly all of his state's series of missiles and weapon tests that started in May, standing by a launcher.

Kim and Trump met again at the Korean border in late June and agreed to restart diplomacy, but there have no public meetings between the sides since then.
