Trump has military options for North Korea

Trump has military options for North Korea

"We can never tolerate that North Korea trampled on the global community's strong, united resolve towards peace that has been shown in UN resolutions and went ahead again with this outrageous act", he said on Friday.

President Donald Trump has responded to North Korea's most recent missile launch with a vow that the United States and its allies will not be intimidated.

Hours earlier, Pyongyang had fired a missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean - its longest missile flight yet - in response to fresh punitive measures imposed by the UN Security Council.

Mattis told reporters on his way to Mexico that as a result of the North Korean missile test, tens of millions of Japanese people were seen going into duck and cover, which was the second time that they've had to do that since World War II.

Tottenham vs. Swansea LIVE: Updates from the Premier League showdown at Wembley
There's probably nothing in it, but people will continue to talk about the Wembley hoodoo until they win a meaningful game there. But that proved wishful thinking and even Harry Kane , who scored twice against Dortmund, couldn't save them.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Twitter, "North Korea's missile launch is another reckless breach of United Nations resolutions - a major threat to worldwide peace and security which demands a global response".

Nebenzia urged North Korea to "stop it" and said the only political proposal to resolve the standoff was the joint Russian-Chinese "freeze for freeze".

"If North Korea continues to walk down this path, it has no bright future".

President Donald Trump has derided the U.N for its "utter weakness and incompetence" and even pledged to cut US taxpayer funding that contributes to its budget. "China and Russian Federation must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own", Tillerson said. And there's little sign that talks involving the U.S., North Korea and other interested countries can be arranged amid the nearly weekly barrage of weapons tests and threats, let alone stop the North's determined nuclear march.

Trump extends sanction waivers for Iran while imposing new ones
Struck by the previous administration under Barack Obama, the landmark deal has consistently come under fire from Trump, who labeled it " the worst deal ever ".

On Friday, the U.N. Security Council condemned North Korea's "highly provocative" test of an intermediate-range missile, which hurtled over USA ally Japan into the northern Pacific Ocean. South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who ran on a platform of improved relations and expanded dialogue with Pyongyang, said after Thursday's missile launch that "dialogue is impossible in a situation like this".

US President Donald Trump will hold a series of meetings with world leaders on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting next week in NY, the White House said on Friday. Equally, as the North moves closer to placing a miniaturised nuclear warhead on a missile capable of hitting a United States city with pinpoint accuracy, how great is the risk that the U.S. might feel compelled to preemptively attack the North to prevent Kim from threatening the USA with a nuclear attack?

While Washington warns of military options, it says it still wants a peaceful solution. She said, however, that options for dealing with the regime of Kim Jong Un are not limited to diplomacy. That launch came less than two weeks after Pyongyang staged its most powerful nuclear test yet.

Ultimately, the USA needs to not only deter North Korea, but also to reassure Japan and South Korea that they will neither be abandoned by their ally nor entrapped in a wider conflict precipitated by America's own independent strategic decisions. North Korea is closer than ever to its goal of building a military arsenal that can viably target both USA troops in Asia and the American homeland.
