Korea dismisses Trump's reported remark that it was part of China

Korea dismisses Trump's reported remark that it was part of China

USA officials say tougher sanctions could include an oil embargo, a global ban on North Korea's airline, intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks doing business with Pyongyang. Combine the above with Pyongyang's other weapons of mass destruction - chemical, biological, and likely radioactive platforms - and North Korea has the means to kill millions of people in Korea, Japan, and across Asia.

Pence also said that North Korea's latest failed missile launch was a reckless act of provocation, and assured Asian allies that the Washington is ready to work to achieve a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson forgot what Aleppo was (a city in Syria) during the election; Sean Spicer said Hitler never used chemical weapons (he did); President Trump told Fox's Maria Bartiromo about how he'd been eating cake with Xi Jinping when missiles were launched at Iraq (actually Syria) and now the Trump seems to have some difficulty remembering the name of the leader of North Korea.

In an editorial Tuesday, it pointed out that China and US cooperation is increasing over the North Korean problem, and that the possibility of dragging out the North Korea issue indefinitely has "decreased drastically". President Trump is now dealing with Kim Jong-un, his son.

The US, Japan, South Korea and China have attempted to reign in the reclusive nation for decades.

Trump signs order to tighten H-1B visa norms
The U.S Department of Labor announced on April 4 plans to protect American workers in the job market due to the H-1B visas. That takes work away from Americans, lowers wages and keeps Americans from being trained in tech-related fields, they say.

Lu Kang, a spokesman of the ministry, said at a briefing, "China objects to any words that could heighten tensions since the current situation on the Korean Peninsula is highly complicated and sensitive".

Mattis did not identify the type of missile but said it was not of intercontinental range, meaning it could not reach USA territory. It has said it has developed a missile that can strike the mainland United States, but officials and experts believe it is some time away from mastering the necessary technology, including miniaturising a nuclear warhead. "Whether that works or not, it's a very different strategy from the last three presidents".

"So, it is most likely that [the US] won't launch a strike against North Korea", the Russian political scientist reiterated, "This adventure would have ended very badly for the United States".

Mike Pence struck a stern tone after arriving at a USA naval base from South Korea. "That's just how the authoritarian Kim government survives".

The Kyunghyang Shinmun newspaper said recently that Trump is playing a "dangerous card" with his verbal threats, risking a miscalculation by Pyongyang and a war on the peninsula. "Trump has much less to lose".

Europa final would be 'perfect' end to season, says Mourinho
After enduring some struggles this season, the 19-year-old is now well and truly generating excitement again. We need everyone we can. "The reality is Sergio is very stable, is very experienced, is playing very well".

Trump is clearly on the mind of the North Korean leadership.

Since entering office, Trump, like former President Barack Obama, has pressed China to use its political and economic leverage over North Korea, its once-close ally.

"It is worthless to respond to this kind of story", he added.

The program has been in development with Japan and is aimed at shooting down intermediate-range North Korean missiles that pose a threat to the USA ally. Pyongyang's regime has called that "a red line", and has since begun its own training for pre-emptive strikes and speeded up its testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles. A number of municipalities are testing community alarm systems and planning evacuation drills as concerns run high around US military bases. "China and the United States and South Korea, Japan, we all share that same interest".

The steady turning up of the heat on all sides has increased the possibility of a miscalculation that could result in an incident that escalates too quickly to be contained, or even outright conflict.
