14 Août, 2017, 00:09 | Author: Claudine Rigal

"Mother of dragons, Kim Jong-un, Donald Trump".

A number of Trump administration officials, including the president himself, have publicly commented on the recent threats made by North Korea, including a proposed strike on the waters off Guam, a US territory in the western Pacific.

During an appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta Friday, Ellison addressed the recent exchange of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and North Korea, saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than the US president.

"Because with Trump it's very hard to tell the difference", Reid concluded. The general is also scheduled to visit China and Japan.

Savage pointed to a Business Insider report citing an expert on North Korea and China who says Pyongyang's development of nuclear weapons is "aimed at the eventual reunification of the Korean peninsula".

President Donald Trump has offered fiery warnings for North Korea, saying that the United States military was "locked and loaded".

Panetta: North Korea 'most serious crisis' involving nukes since Cuba
The US is now pursuing talks through diplomatic backchannels, however Panetta said he's is concerned about the possibility of a "miscalculation".


The warm words exchanged between Xi and Trump Friday night in the US masked underlying tensions between Beijing and Washington over how to deal with the errant regime in Pyongyang.

North Korea said on Thursday plans would be completed by mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles to land near the US Pacific island of Guam, 3,500 km (2,175 miles) away. "All the macho war talk between rounds of golf at Bedminster has made it hard to tell Trump's words from those of the brutal 33-year-old dictator of North Korea", Reid explained. I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first. United States officials then told NBC that Washington has a plan for a preemptive strike on North Korean missile sites with bombers stationed in Guam, should Trump order it.

Trump and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have both used strong language pertaining to North Korea's threats. "What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".

Trump's "firm break with 20-plus years of failed American policy on North Korea represents the one chance we might have to forestall a massive conflict on the Korean peninsula", said Jaffer in an email.

"It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse", he added.
