United States calls Britain into World War 3 showdown with North Korea

United States calls Britain into World War 3 showdown with North Korea”

"And with me, he's not getting away with it", Trump told reporters in New Jersey.

"It's not a dare".

"They do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk", he wrote on Twitter. The Hwasong-12 it has threatened to lob toward Guam has failed three out of four tests.

China has long anxious that any conflict on the Korean peninsula, or a repeat of the 1950-53 Korean war, could unleash a wave of destabilizing refugees into its northeast, and could end up with a reunified county allied with the United States. And he's not going to threaten South Korea.

Pyongyang's latest statement, read on state-run television Thursday, said North Korea is "seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four ... ballistic rockets" in the water about 18 to 24 miles off the coast of the USA territory.

The plan calls for missiles to be fired into the sea about 40 kilometres from the coast of Guam.

TRUMP: Let's see what he does with Guam.

The governor, Eddie Calvo, spoke on the phone with Mr Trump and Chief of Staff John Kelly on Saturday morning, during which Mr Trump assured Mr Calvo that the island's people were safe.

"My portfolio, my mission, my responsibility, is to have military options should they be needed", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters Thursday night.

The publication came after US President Donald Trump stepped up his rhetoric against North Korea, threatening Pyongyang with a military solution.

However, continued missile tests from North Korea including two Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles angered the west and Trump's initially warm embrace of China turned cold.

"They should be very nervous", Trump said of North Korea.

I'm going to choose to believe Mr. Trump is playing a game of chicken here, that he is trying to turn up the heat to a degree that even Kim Jong Un can't stand, and that Washington is trying to force some sort of negotiated outcome. They haven't quelled tensions, but could be a foundation for a more diplomacy, according to USA officials and others briefed on the process.

China should remain neutral if North Korea launches an attack that threatens the United States, but should act if the U.S. or its allies strike first, a prominent Chinese state-run newspaper said on Friday.

Australia, a long-time United States ally, has stated that it will invoke a mutual defense if the USA is attacked by North Korea. "I think it will take more missile tests and more nuclear tests to have any confidence in such a design".

Iran, China, and Russian Federation will probably think so.

For instance, during an April concert celebrating North Korea's founding father and Kim's grandfather, Kim Il Sung, the country unveiled a video that showed its missiles blowing up San Francisco. We lose hundreds of billions of dollars a year on trade with China. "It's not going to continue like that". She noted the Obama administration and its immediate predecessors had tried a mixture of diplomacy, sanctions, cooperation with China and "various other methods we shouldn't speak about on television".

Trump has made a vocal and purposeful shift in posture from his predecessors, blasting their inability to prevent North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and missiles capable of reaching the United States. The benchmark S&P 500 stock index closed with a 1.4 percent loss, marking the biggest one-day drop since May and registering just the third day all year that it closed with a loss of more than 1 percent. As North Korea promised to engulf the USA territory of Guam in "enveloping fire", President Trump tweeted that the US military is "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely". "While the USA president insists on ramping up the war of words, there is a decreasing chance of any diplomatic solution".

Defence minister Itsunori Onodera said earlier this week: "We are always prepared to deal with emergencies".
