Trump returns to the attack on North Korea with fresh threats

North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, US analysts say

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough".

"We're really more concerned about the almost irresponsible and provocative statements coming from both people who purport to be the leaders of two nations that are really disconcerting", Cruz told DW.

Some experts argue the current strategy for shooting down ICBM-range missiles, like those North Korea is trying to perfect, is overly expensive and inadequate. I'll tell you what.

Shares of Macy's (M.N) tumbled 9.5 percent and Kohl's (KSS.N) 6.7 percent after the department store operators reported a drop in quarterly same-store sales that stoked concerns that their turnaround may still be a long way off.

"They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said.

China, North Korea's most important ally and trading partner, has reiterated calls for calm during the current crisis.

"The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA will cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan", the report said.

"I think China can do a lot more, yes".

"Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him", the military said in comments carried by state-run news agency KCNA. Should we trust the intelligence now on North Korea?

North Korea has made no attempt to tone down its language since Moscow and Beijing put aside their differences with Washington and voted to back the sanctions. "He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before - what will happen in North Korea".

"This resolution was adopted on 5 August 2017 in response to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s ongoing nuclear-weapon and ballistic missile-development activities, in violation and flagrant disregard of previous UN Security Council resolutions", the statement noted.

Tensions between the US and North Korea increased this week after President Trump warned "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States". The funding would be used to sustain and improve the force and for developing a new generation of weapons. The plan would be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for approval just before or as the US-South Korea drills begin.

The report did not mention any threat of the use of nuclear missiles near Guam.

That is why they abandoned missile defense in Europe, allowed Russia to invade Ukraine, dismantled international sanctions against Iran, and let the Chinese build fake islands in the South China Sea.

What do US officials think?

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

The place is bristling with heavy-duty US military equipment. "He has told me this".

In Benghazi, the Obama administration failed to make any effort to save U.S. diplomats and security personnel - and then Rice lied shamelessly to the American people, blaming a YouTube video for the attack.
