Who would have to go to war with Trump — North Korea

Trump: 'Fire and fury' talk on N. Korea 'wasn't tough enough'

China's foreign ministry said in a statement that Xi told Trump a peaceful resolution to the North Korean nuclear issue was essential, and urged calm.

Liberal president Moon Jae-in, elected in May, had vowed to conduct an environmental review of the deployment, which he had questioned while on the campaign trail. "Lock and load", Wayne declared in Sands of Iwo Jima.

Trump, vacationing at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort, earlier took to Twitter to warn North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that US "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

The world is currently holding its breath.

SREENIVASAN: The cover of the paper in Guam, what, Friday was 14 minutes in big block letters. My predecessors let you get away with building up your nuclear arsenal. They also accused Saudi authorities of coercing confessions and reportedly subjecting the protesters to physical force.

Regardless of previous actions, leadership, agreements, and violations, the basic problem that the world faces today is that narcissistic, egomaniacal, short-sighted mad men are in charge of both North Korea and the United States, and both of these men have nuclear weapons at their disposal.

Furthermore, the United States has sufficient military might to respond to any such military strike without the aid of its European allies, Dembinski says.

SREENIVASAN: All right. So, it's got to get through all of those.

Trump and Macron spoke on Saturday.

Speaking with Guam's governor, Eddie Baza Calvo, on Friday, Trump said that the White House was with the territory "1,000 percent" and joked that the crisis was actually good for the island, as it was now making Calvo and Guam famous and would result in a tenfold increase in tourism.

In the near future, it would be highly sensitive if US B-1B fighter jets fly over the Korean Peninsula or North Korea launches missiles in the direction of Guam.

But, you know, I was also at the beach this afternoon, and people were swimming, you know, sitting around with their families, having barbecues. Neither the United States nor North Korea has embraced the plan.

Four out of the six top teams were Chinese, and the other two were Liquid itself and Virtus.Pro, regional rivals. Before this, there has never been a 3-0 grand final.

As the rhetoric has ratchetted up, South Koreans are buying more ready-to-eat meals for emergency use, and the government aims to expand nationwide civil defence drills planned for Aug. 23. "I don't see a military solution to this conflict", she told reporters in Berlin.

"I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer", Merkel added.

"Hopefully it'll all work out", Trump said.

Did China just give Donald Trump a green light to retaliate if North Korea launches missiles at US soil?

So what, ultimately, is Pyongyang trying to accomplish? 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.

For his part, Calvo seemed thrilled by the call and expressed faith in the president.

Lucy, the people that you talk to there, are they concerned? In the candid call, Trump asserted that the U.S. Pacific island territory was safe and called Calvo "a helluva guy".

CRAYMER: Yes, so, they've talked a lot about the fact that it's not just one sort of level of defense. "It would be, in many respects, 9/11 - but times a hundred".

The war of words has continued between the U.S. and the North over the last week.

But pushing the envelope, or just threatening to do so, is what North Korea does best.

The UN Security Council last weekend backed a punishing new round of sanctions against North Korea following the test-firing of two intercontinental ballistic missiles, which experts believe could be capable of hitting the US mainland. "It will require being pragmatic". Early Friday morning, the president said the U.S. military is "locked and loaded" regarding North Korea.

After a week of threats and counterthreats between Washington and Pyongyang, Xi urged both sides not to say or do anything that would aggravate tensions, China's CGTN state television network reported.
