Pres. Trump warns NKorea that United States is 'locked and loaded'”

US President Donald Trump ratcheted up tensions with North Korea Friday, saying "military solutions" are in place to deal with North Korea's provocations.

North Korea has responded by suggesting that it plans to launch four missiles to land in the waters near Guam, an American possession that hosts important military bases.

"Fire and fury" has become "locked and loaded" as President Donald Trump's warnings against North Korea's threats to US military installations and its nuclear ambitions continue.

He called on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to "find another path".

It is not clear what exactly the USA military has done to get its responses "fully in place".

Tensions between the two countries have escalated these weeks after North Korea tested two inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in July. -South Korea military exercises will continue.

"If the USA and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so", it said. Pacific territory of Guam. "Maybe it wasn't tough enough", Trump said Thursday. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Thursday that the U.S.is "gaining diplomatic results" and a conflict in Korea would be "catastrophic".

"Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?"

Trump's latest warning came a day after he cautioned North Korea that "things will happen to them like they never thought possible" should the isolated country attack the United States or its allies. If the missiles are taken down, the United States will have achieved a crushing propaganda victory against North Korea.
