Trump on his threat to North Korea: 'Maybe it wasn't tough enough'

Trump has alternately praised and chided China for the efforts to contain its rogue neighbor. Beijing, which is concerned about the implications for its own security that a nuclear North Korea poses, is nearly certainly letting Pyongyang know of its concerns.

It added that China maintains an anti-nuclear, anti-war and anti-chaos policy on the Korean Peninsula and it will resist any attempt to change the status quo.

According to Chinese state media, Mr Xi told Mr Trump in a phone call that "all relevant parties" should stop "words and deeds" that would exacerbate the situation.

With its latest threat, North Korea is suggesting it could launch four missiles which could potentially overwhelm the THAAD missile defense system and strike near Guam.

U.S. Intelligence reports paint a nightmare scenario.

The Guam Daily Post, in an editorial, said the spotlight on the territory offered an opportunity to show the world why an island of 162,000 people draws more than 1.5 million tourists a year.

The tough talk capped a week in which long-standing tensions between the countries risked abruptly boiling over.

"The U.S. imperialists ... had better not provoke the DPRK any more, mindful of its deplorable fate on the verge of ruin", North Korea warned in a series of statements, each more intense than the last.

North Korea said it would fire ballistic missiles towards Guam, home to some 7,000 American military personnel. "We know that any moment, they could send those (weapons). but I think a lot of us in the end are not too anxious". While there has been some resistance and displeasure from the people of Guam over the USA military's presence, it is also essential to the island's economy, second only to tourism in importance. As a precaution, Japan deployed missile defense batteries under the path a North Korean missile might take.

But the American and North Korean diplomats also have discussed the overall U.S.

There have been no air raid drills or cars in camouflage netting as has been the case during previous crises. "They may expect a rain of ruin from the air", President Harry S. Truman said of the Japanese after Hiroshima, "the like of which has never been seen on this Earth".


So it's not surprising that Guam's strong military presence has gotten Kim Jong-un's attention.

The B-1B, manufactured by Boeing, has served in the USA military since 1985, according to data from the company.

Trump also brushed away calls for caution from other world leaders, including Germany's Angela Merkel. "I feel it would be a pretty stupid idea to do that", she said.

China is the North's key trading partner and, although neither trusts the other very much, its biggest political buffer against pressure from Washington and its allies.

"It's worth noting", Bennett said, "Trump made this remark on Nagasaki Day, the 70th anniversary of when a U.S. atomic weapon slaughtered around 100,000 civilians in that Japanese city". "Perhaps she is referring to Germany".

Mothers told him they were "really apprehensive" because "you just don't know what's really going to happen".

By evening, he seemed to have mellowed a bit. Trump has said he will not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

It was inevitable. Eventually, President Donald Trump would treat a foreign adversary as harshly as Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

Today, as Pyongyang once again calls Guam out by name, the island's governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, says there is "no threat" to the island. "We are with you a thousand percent".

And a day later, he told reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, that his administration is looking at military options "very carefully".
