Trump & Macron
Earlier this week, Trump said that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if it made further threats against the US, and then on Thursday, he suggested that those words may not have been "tough enough" after the threats from North Korea continued.
"At the end of the day if the North Koreans evolve into a fully replete nuclear weapons state with ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) with miniaturised warheads on top then, well, the Chinese view is, the USA will then just have to accept that reality", Mr Rudd said.
Yun Sun, a senior associate at the Washington, D.C. -based Stimson Center, argued North Korea would not need intercontinental ballistic missiles to strike South Korea, whose capital sits just 35 miles from the border.
The United States must take into account the tragic failure of appeasement and Kim Jong Un's ultimate aim of reunifying the Korean peninsula in its response to the communist regime's threats of nuclear attack, contends talk-radio host and author Michael Savage. But Mattis said Thursday that the American effort was "diplomatically led".
"It's somewhat reminiscent to me of the history of World War I and how the world kind of blundered into that", Clapper said in an interview with CNN. I don't think we are there yet.
"I hope people learn from history and don't repeat that".
After the telephones talks on Saturday, the White House said in a statement that the two leaders discussed the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilizing and escalatory behavior.
I'm hopeful cooler heads in our military and government will prevail.
Trump's call with Macron came hours after he talked with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a separate phone call.
China, because of this view, will only do a few things to try and talk North Korea into coming around to a more reasonable posture.
Despite the bombastic rhetoric exchanged between North Korean and American leaders this week, the Trump administration has been quietly engaged in back-channel diplomacy with North Korea for several months, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
