Trump on North Korea: US military is locked and loaded

In a Friday morning tweet, Trump said "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

The US president fired off his latest threat to leader Kim Jong-un as the impasse over Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions continued to widen.

Trump said this week the USA would unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S.

On Thursday, Trump told reporters that perhaps that warning "wasn't tough enough".

"The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons", Mattis said, referring to North Korea. And while the US has the military resources in the region to strike North Korea at short notice, it does not appear to be sending in more military hardware as might be expected if it were preparing for a conflict.

"It's about time someone stood up for the people of our country", he added.

North Korea responded hours later by accusing the USA of "war hysteria" and threatening to strike Guam.

As North Korean ballistic missiles are liquid fueled, they take some time to prepare for launch, unlike solid fueled ICBMs deployed by the United States and Russian Federation that can be launched on command.

"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.

Meanwhile, China urged Washington and Pyongyang to calm but warned through Global Times that Beijing will remain neutral if the U.S. is attacked and decides to launch a counterattack.

Asked if the United States was ready if North Korea made a hostile act, he said: "We are ready". China, North Korea's only major ally, called on both countries to avoid the "old road" of escalating hostilities.
