Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

Trump's warning came after the North threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam.

In the past week Donald Trump has retweeted his threats to rain down fire and fury, boasted about the readiness of his nuclear army and told a nation his "military solutions" were "fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". "This is tragicomedy of its own making".

The paper said, "The powerful revolutionary Paektusan army of the DPRK, capable of fighting any war the USA wants, is now on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack". That's the question actor Kal Penn wants answered.

China Central Television on Saturday cited Xi as saying that Beijing and Washington are both interested in the denuclearization of the peninsula.

Rep. David Cicilline urged Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday to call back the House from its August recess in order to debate legislation that would require congressional approval for a USA pre-emptive strike.

Trump dialed up the rhetoric early Friday, tweeting that the USA military is "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".


Trump has long vowed to pressure China to rein in North Korea, particularly its rapidly advancing nuclear and missile programs. If somebody else uttered the exact same words that I uttered, they'd say what a great statement, what a wonderful statement. "Hopefully, it will all work out", he said Friday.

The ministry did not confirm whether Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has already issued an order to shoot down incoming missiles.

Macron also spoke by phone with US President Donald Trump with the aim of "getting North Korea to conform to its global obligations", his Elysee office said.

Trump has stood by his bellicose rhetoric on North Korea, saying leader Kim Jong Un "will truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he issues an overt threat or attacks Guam or a USA ally.

"It is critical that the Trump administration exhaust all diplomatic options before resorting to military force", Cicilline wrote.

Asked Friday if the US was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".
