North Korea warns Trump against escalating tensions

North Korea warns Trump against escalating tensions”

"The only way to "locate and destroy - with complete certainty - all components of North Korea's nuclear weapons programs" is through a ground invasion", the assessment said.

Rear Adm. Michael J. Dumont, the vice director of the Pentagon's Joint Staff, explained in a letter to Congress that ground invasion is the only way to grab every North Korean nuclear weapon "with complete certainty".

The Joint Chiefs also fear that Pyongyang would use biological weapons in a conflict, despite worldwide conventions banning their use, as well as chemical weapons - which it has never agreed to abandon.

In a candid assessment of the North Korea situation, the Pentagon responded to a letter from Reps.

Lieu and Gallego asked Defense Secretary James Mattis for the assessment in September, as past congressional briefings on North Korea have not included analysis on expected casualties in the event of war.

The amount of casualties would differ depending on the advance warning and the ability of US and South Korea forces to counter these attacks, he said.

A statement by 16 lawmakers, released simultaneously with the Pentagon letter, urged President Donald Trump to stop making "provocative statements" that impede diplomatic efforts and risk the lives of United States troops, the paper said.

The U.S. Navy, Republic of Korea Navy and the Royal Australia Navy regularly participate in maritime training exercises throughout the 7th Fleet area of operations in an effort to maintain security and stability throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific.

They also noted that the Trump administration "has failed to articulate any plans to prevent the military conflict from expanding beyond the Korean Peninsula and to manage what happens after the conflict is over".

"With that in mind, the thought of sending troops into harm's way and expending resources on another potentially unwinnable war is chilling". In response, Trump has engaged in a bitter war of words with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and has repeatedly threatened military action against the country.

A t a speech Sunday at Yokota Air Base in Fussa, Japan, Trump rallied the American service members and assured U.S. allies in the region that he had their backs in the face of the rogue regime's threats.

However, North Korea's nuclear and missile locations are scattered and hidden all over the largely mountainous country.

Despite North Korea's claims, the United States eliminated the nuclear mission for the B-1 in 1994, the Air Force said.

Trump called North Korea a worldwide threat that requires worldwide action and said that it made sense for North Korea to "come to the table", and "do the right thing". One report by the Congressional Research Service published in October estimates at least 25 million casualties, including 100,000 US citizens, military personnel and civilians across both sides of the border.

"We will never yield, never waver and never falter in defence of our freedom", he said.
