US Military Ready For North Korea - President Trump

Donald Trump has kept up the war of words again referencing North Korea's leader in his latest

Meanwhile, other Asia-Pacific countries, including Japan and Australia, have come out in support of the United States in the event of a North Korean nuclear attack.

Trump can't be happy that North Korea has accelerated its weapons program despite ever-tightening sanctions, and China's inability or unwillingness to pressure its ally to curb nuclear and missile testing, analysts say. North Korea also dismissed Trump's "fire and fury" comment as "nonsense". "He just doesn't listen to anybody, and Kim Jong-Un is unpredictable, so you're faced with those serious obstacles". China is the North's biggest economic partner and source of aid, but says it alone can't compel Pyongyang to end its nuclear and missile programs.

Kim, the North Korean leader, will "truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he utters an overt threat at Guam or any territory belonging to the U.S. or its allies, he added.

"We are with you a thousand percent", Trump said, according to video of the call posted on Calvo's Facebook page.

This prompted Pyongyang to hit back with detailed plans on a missile strike against the U.S. territory Guam, accusing America of being "the mastermind of nuclear threat, the heinous nuclear war fanatic" in a media report. Neither the United States nor North Korea has embraced the plan.

"We are looking at that very carefully".

President Trump has previously chided China for not reining in North Korea, saying it could do "a lot more".

Quoting defence ministry officials, Kyodo News said that the government hopes to complete deployment of the missile defence system by Saturday morning.

China is North Korea's biggest trading partner and main supplier of energy.

For all the war-like rhetoric between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, neither country is taking action on the ground that matches the scary talk.

"The Korean Peninsula is where the strategic interests of all sides converge, and no side should try to be the absolute dominator of the region", it said in an editorial published in the Communist Party-run Global Times. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump".

"Force has always been an option, but it has always been the last option, not the first", Soderberg said.

"We will see what happens".

Earlier in the day, Trump issued a warning to North Korea.

YUN: Well, to be clear, China does not like the provocative behaviors that North Korea is pushing.

The US is currently rotating six B-1s through Andersen Air Force Base in Guam which would serve as a key aerial assets should Trump order a military strike on North Korea either preemptively or as a quick response to escalation from Pyongyang. "They are the only ones that I believe that are having contacts right now".

"Mr President, as the Governor of Guam, representative of Guam's people, and as an American citizen, I felt never more safe and confident with you at the helm", the Governor said with a smile.

Neighboring powers urged restraint.
