Trump says fire and fury threat 'maybe not tough enough'

On Aug. 8, it was revealed that members of the U.S. intelligence community believe North Korea's nuclear capabilities are more advanced and the country may have developed the technology to place a miniaturized nuclear warhead inside a missile, a U.S. official confirmed to ABC News.

North Korea's threat against Guam spotlights a western Pacific U.S. territory that looms large as a military asset, despite being smaller than Singapore. He said if McConnell is unable to get a host of GOP priorities done, like healthcare and tax reform, "Then you can ask me that question". But Donald Trump's limited understanding of modern warfare and international politics might convince him that he can pick a few cheap and easy fights to boost his popularity and secure a few quick wins. That means ratcheting up the pressure, rhetorically, militarily, and economically. Its meaning seems pretty obvious: Paul is talking about obeying the civil authority under which you live. Disappointing company earnings also helped pull the market lower, with consumer-focused companies and technology stocks among the biggest decliners. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in Asia pressing other North Korean neighbors to be strict, too.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States", he said.

Pyongyang earlier dismissed the US president's dire warnings as "nonsense". "Their satellite had seen a reflection off of the clouds". Read the story: North Korea 'examining' missile launch toward Guam.

Clarissa Baumgartner, a 25-year old Guam resident, said Pyongyang's second threat in as many days to train its ballistic missiles on Guam wasn't something she was taking too seriously.

This leaves aside the rather obvious fact that the American troops carrying out a war with North Korea would be risking death.

Asked Thursday whether the secretary-general could be a mediator, Dujarric says, "He is always willing to do so". Experts say the country likely has eight to 10 nuclear weapons.

But the statement raised worries amid a barrage of threats from both sides.

If recent reports are accurate, that may have already occurred.

On July 28. It was the country's 11th missile test so far this year.

Following the meeting also attended by 26 other Asia-Pacific countries and major powers, it issued the chairman's statement in which they expressed "grave concern" over North Korea's escalation of tensions and urged it to fully comply with U.N. Security Council resolutions.

The Hweasong-12, which was revealed for the first time at a military parade in April, is an intermediate-range ballistic missile that is believed to have a range of more than 3,700 kilometers (2,300 miles). As seldom as it is for a president to speak of using nuclear missiles, the reference to the "destruction" of a foreign people is equally rare.

Today's force is largely the same as the one Trump inherited on Jan. 20. A huge red, white and blue ribbon is outside the airport terminal. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. They maintain contacts through their United Nations missions, their embassies in Beijing and meetings between military officers at Panmunjom, the location on the militarized frontier dividing the Korean Peninsula where the truce that stilled the 1950-53 Korean War was signed.

He added that "Guam is American soil" and that "an attack or threat on Guam is an attack or threat on the United States".

One factor that could push up yields back up again is any tightening in monetary conditions in the U.S., the world's largest economy.
