Top US General Jets Into Asia as North Korea Tensions Run High

14 August 2017, 12:10 | Darnell Patrick

But Pompeo says on "Fox News Sunday" that North Korea's push to develop a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capable of hitting the United States "is a very serious threat and the administration is going to treat it as such". "That's why we see more and more people making the argument that the North Korea's nuclear development is not aimed at the USA, not aimed at South Korea, but aimed at reunification". Beijing is reluctant to put so much pressure on the regime that it risks collapse.

Dunford said last month that it was "unimaginable" to allow North Korea to develop the capability to strike a USA city with a nuclear weapon.

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.

White House officials have insisted the investigation is not created to apply additional pressure on China as it relates to North Korea despite the president's previous remarks that he would be more amenable on trade if China stopped Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The war of words between Pyongyang and Washington has escalated since US President Donald Trump took office.

Trump is expected on Monday to launch a trade investigation into China. "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.

Kim Jong Un thinks "the nuclear weapons will prevent USA from getting involved", Sun said.

"Hopefully it will all work out", he told reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey.

McMaster also said while poised militarily, the U.S. is exploring other avenues to confront the threat from Kim's weapons program. U.S. 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.

"The president's rhetoric could be aimed at China, but largely it is aimed at North Korea, trying to deter", Roehrig said.

Aggression in diplomacy - telling the Koreans that the U.S. is "locked and loaded", and will bring "fire and fury" - are counterproductive and senseless.

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