Kim Jong-un briefed on missile strike plan for Guam — N.Korea

Mattis, Tillerson Urge Diplomatic Solution to N. Korea

Guam, a US territory in the Pacific, has emerged as a major security issue following North Korea's threats to fire missiles near Guam, home to US air and naval base.

He also said the "North Korean nuclear program should absolutely be solved peacefully, and the (South Korean) government and the US government don't have a different position on this".

Kim's latest announcement follows a week of heated exchanges between Pyongyang and Washington and a threat from North Korea to fire missiles into the ocean near the US territory. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", he said.

Gossack went on to paint a picture of the South Korean tourism market, which is undergoing radical changes. He said no U.S. military action on the Korean Peninsula could be taken without Seoul's consent. The Phase III contingency assumed Chinese capability to attack the United States. "An estimated 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners, some imprisoned for religious reasons, were believed to be held in the political prison camp system in remote areas under horrific conditions".

"China has long supplied more than 90% of the North's energy needs, and vast quantities of food and other assistance to sustain Pyongyang's gulag", wrote former Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton in The Hill.

In 1994, President Bill Clinton's administration negotiated what was dubbed the "Agreed Framework".

China has indicated that it would stay neutral in the event of a North Korean attack on the U.S. or its allies.

But North Korea doesn't see it that way.

Speaking to Talk Radio, Calvo said North Korea was "a bully" that could only be stopped by "a punch to the nose".

"It may be just a ruse". Instead, the entire deal collapsed in 2002.

The clear message: If you support North Korea's regime economically, we'll hurt you economically in return.

He said even a test would cause concern and the US would see that as a step over the line in terms of a provocation. "On the part of the US, we have a president who is unschooled and unskilled in diplomacy". It's not a coincidence. That is why I believe a hardline approach would likely end in failure.

However, if America persists in its "extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared", Kim Jong-un warned.

Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month. "That's a war-time situation". The Navy ruled the island until Japan took control in 1941. The launch was condemned by the United Nations, which subsequently promised sanctions as punishment - prompting North Korea to leave the talks for good. He has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement. They are also well fed. The need for a more robust U.S. missile defense becomes more pressing all the time.

Stoll doubts that Kim's pullback can be directly credited to President Donald Trump's own aggressive rhetoric. One analogy is especially salient: China in the 1960s. Take a new path toward peace, prosperity and international acceptance, or continue further down the dead alley of belligerence, poverty and isolation.

As a result, restaurants, bars, pre-packaged food producers, and online companies that cater to individuals are booming, he said.

The past indicates that negotiating with North Korea is not an impossible or fruitless endeavor.

The United States will go to war with North Korea if it fires missiles at Guam, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday, issuing another strong warning to Pyongyang.
