Justice Minister: Trump's rhetoric around North Korea 'unhelpful and scary'

Trump chose own words for 'fire and fury' remarks

Truman & Stimson

MARTIN: What - are President Trump's words, though, undermining the potential effectiveness of those sanctions if it just keeps escalating the rhetoric and escalating the threats that North Korea throws back?

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", Trump said Tuesday to reporters.

But what - where it wouldn't help is if we were to take in the action of fire and fury in response to a provocative statement being said where North Korea isn't actually going to be engaging in military action against us.

In response, North Korean state media reported the regime was considering a strike on the island of Guam, where the U.S. has a key military base. To allay these concerns, the Trump administration should publicly declare its agreement with the constitutional requirement that any preemptive attack on North Korea must be debated and authorized by Congress.

In an editorial on Saturday, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the US "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK". "We have other means of communication open to them, to certainly hear from them if they have a desire to want to talk", Tillerson said at an Asian security meeting in the Philippines this week, adding that negotiations would be welcomed on the condition that North Korea stops testing missiles that could potentially reach the USA mainland-a major concern, given that North Korea has significantly advanced its weapons program since the last serious negotiations with the U.S. Said Lois Gillajup of Mount Airy, North Carolina, "As long as it's apes evolving from humans and not the other way around, I guess it's okay". In April the White House took the rare step of inviting all 100 senators to the White House for a classified briefing on North Korea. But he said the US should assume the worst.

"The worldwide situation surrounding nuclear weapons is becoming increasingly tense", Taue said today.

Trump planned to launch the trade investigation more than a week ago, but he delayed the move in favor of securing China's support for expanded United Nations sanctions against North Korea, the senior administration official said. "It will involve the massive shelling of an ally's capital, which is one of the most densely packed cities on earth".

"What I would say here ladies and gentleman, my portfolio, my mission, my responsibility is to have military options should they be needed", he said. Listen, they threaten us in a way you never will.

The administration has been eyeing other moves to rebalance the U.S.

The North responded with a warning that it was considering an attack on the US territory of Guam. It wasn't immediately clear how China would react to the move.


"US intelligence now believes that North Korea is now making missile-ready nuclear weapons", Colbert explained. -South Korean military exercises-which are set to resume this month-and an eventual peace treaty with Washington. Concerns were heightened late last month when tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile indicated Pyongyang may be within a year or two of obtaining the technology to reach the US with nuclear missiles. The North Koreans have been doing this and testing this.

The sanctions target about a third of North Korea's estimated $3 billion in annual exports.

Trump, while addressing the American opioid crisis during a N.J. briefing, acknowledged reports, that North Korea has "miniaturized nuclear warheads" capable of striking the United States.

The ongoing talks, which were first reported by The Associated Press, included discussions about U.S.

Limbaugh also expressed concern over the approach by Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, towards the problem of North Korea.

North Korea has repeatedly refused to conduct any negotiations aimed at halting its nuclear progress. Yun and North Korean diplomat Pak Song II negotiated the release of imprisoned American college student Otto Warmbier in June.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a USA attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un. "We need you back, '" Limbaugh added.

Kazianis said China must enforce the sanctions and strip North Korea of vital resources used for its militarization. Three days before that, the USA had dropped a bomb on Hiroshima killing 70,000 people instantly.
