Trump's war threats against North Korea 'the art of the bluff': Zakaria

Trump's war threats against North Korea 'the art of the bluff': Zakaria”

A number of Trump administration officials, including the president himself, have publicly commented on the recent threats made by North Korea, including a proposed strike on the waters off Guam, a USA territory in the western Pacific.

"The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people", Mattis said in the statement.

Carter said North Korea wants a new peace treaty to replace the ceasefire agreement that's existed since the end of the Korean War in 1953, and to end economic sanctions.

So far, the talks have done little to bring the two countries together, according to AP, and Yun is the only American envoy in contact with a North Korean counterpart.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, en route to Guam Wednesday morning said the president "was sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language".

Even as President Donald Trump says the United States military is "locked and loaded" to potentially unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea, the two feuding countries have been holding secretive, back-channel talks, The Associated Press reported Friday.

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough", Trump said of his previous statement.

"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years, and it's about time that somebody stuck up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries".

Consequently, Britain may be unwilling to permanently damage the so-called "special relationship" with the USA by failing to back up its key ally in the war against North Korea, especially if the latter acts as an aggressor.

US President Donald Trump speaks during a security briefing on August 10, 2017, at his Bedminster National Golf Club in New Jersey.

"The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea", Carter said.

"In all cases, a nuclear exchange must be avoided". The regime's recent military tests reveal that the entire continental USA with the exception of Florida may be in range of North Korean missiles.
