Pentagon Ready to 'Fight Tonight' as Tensions Between US, North Korea Escalate

President Donald J. Trump

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.

The remarks drew outrage, and in an interview after the panel with the Washington Post, Ellison went into damage control.

"I learned one thing about bullies: Unless you stand up to them, even if they're bigger than you, they're going to crush you", Savage told his listeners.

"You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison said.

Paul Merson berates Antonio Conte for shocking Alvaro Morata/Michy Batshuayi substitution
Antonio Conte gave Alvaro Morata 31 minutes from the substitutes' bench on his Premier League debut and he scored with a header. In-form Vokes now has seven goals in his last six Premier League appearances after netting only five in the previous 58.

The United States must take into account the tragic failure of appeasement and Kim Jong Un's ultimate aim of reunifying the Korean peninsula in its response to the communist regime's threats of nuclear attack, contends talk-radio host and author Michael Savage. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy". "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

Ellison warned Trump's rhetoric could spur Kim to take action first and called for someone to bring "calm to the situation, not spiking it".

Johnson's intervention came as Chinese President Xi Jinping appealed to both sides for calm amid fears the worsening war of words between North Korea and the U.S. could lead to a military conflict with catastrophic consequences for the region, the Press Association reported.

The missiles are created to carry nuclear weapons but it is not clear if the North has warheads small enough to fit on them, or the technology to bring them back to earth in one piece.
