You're on your own, pal — China to Kim

Allies safe from North Korea, Trump vows

North Korean President Kim Jung Un specifically cited targeting the Pacific island of Guam with "enveloping fire".

Over the last week, Trump has issued stern warnings about the U.S. response to North Korea, saying the United States will respond with "fire, fury and frankly power" to such threats.

In case you thought that the president might have regretted threatening "fire and fury" upon North Korea, you needn't worry.

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo (R) posted a video of the call on YouTube, in which Trump can be heard telling Calvo that the "with you 1,000 percent". If Kim Jong-un could make his first travel outside North Korea to Seoul in return for presidents Kim Dae-jung and Roh Moo-yun's visits to Pyongyang in 2000 and 2007, then it would be an important step on the road to peace in Korea.

He'd need to undertake extensive war and postwar planning, mustering all relevant agencies of the U.S. government - when it's still in doubt whether his new chief of staff can even succeed in keeping order within the Oval Office. His remarks received criticism from both sides of the aisle, with fellow Republicans slamming Trump's lack of directness and attempt to inject moral equivalence into the situation of chaos and terror. Russia, however, has said that the missiles were intermediate range. Neither the United States nor North Korea has embraced the plan. And we'll see how it all works out, but you're not going to have a problem.

President Donald Trump called the governor of Guam on Friday to reassure him of the island's safety as nuclear tensions grow between the United States and North Korea. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

The Labour leader, a long time anti-war campaigner, said the result of a nuclear strike would go on for decades, adding: "I ask them both, calm down". He said in a statement, "Men and women from state and local agencies will be in Charlottesville [on Saturday] to keep the public safe, and their job will be made easier if Virginians, no matter how well-meaning, elect to stay away from the areas where this rally will take place". It could also have a chilling psychological impact on allies like Japan and South Korea, which might seek to build up their own nuclear forces independently of Washington.

Elsewhere in the region, Japan is also on the side of the USA.

The laureates said the 14 were convicted and sentenced in a mass trial "based on the actions of the worst defendant", arguing that several would never warrant the death penalty. Immediate risks include the danger of massive refugee flows from a decapitated North Korea and the possibility of a reunified Korea shaped by the capitalist South. Many commentators are calling these risks "intolerable", but what they're missing is the greater risk to China's long-term ambitions posed by a failure to pacify its rogue neighbor.

"Those words are very, very easy to understand". In that sense, China's message today is aimed more at Kim Jong-un than Donald Trump - or perhaps more aimed at the North Korean military, who will bear the brunt of US retaliation.

Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price speaks to the media Tuesday about the administration's response to the opioid crisis.

For years, we have pursued desultory sanctions against Pyongyang with intermittent negotiations conducted through a prism of self-delusion. "History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea - the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War".

There are also reports that the White House will announce on Monday that it's opening an investigation into China's treatment of intellectual property, though it's not clear what effect pursuing a trade conflict would have on the cooperation between China and the U.S. regarding the North Korea crisis.
