United Nations chief warns against military action on North Korea, calls for diplomacy

To refresh your memory, that rhetoric includes North Korea claiming it is devising a plan to strike near the USA territory of Guam with four of its missiles, . and Trump in return saying North Korea will experience quote "fire and fury" if it attacks, and that the U.S.is quote "locked and loaded" in case North Korea acts unwisely. "We are closely monitoring every move by the United States". Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), and the deputy chair of the DNC, said that the unhinged North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is more responsible than President Trump.

"The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!" Moreover, there's no real way to be confident a USA -led military strike could destroy all of the dispersed and hidden components of North Korea's illicit programs.

They agreed that the North's missile launches, including the ICBM tests in July, are "unacceptable provocations" that "must stop immediately".

The United States will also protect South Korea from any North Korean attacks by utilizing all of its capabilities, Mattis added. "The solution to this crisis must be political".

The United States has been hoping China can press the North to rein in its weapons programs, something the top USA general reiterated in talks in Beijing this week. And then there's Maxine Waters who said, "We should just give the North Koreans what they are demanding".

"Over the past decades, there were a myriad of anti-Workers' Party, anti-revolutionary events in North Korea that the South could call something close to a pro-democracy movement", Thae said. It's likely a coincidence, but South Korean President Moon Jae-in also publicly declared that the military option is not on the table this week. He called on Latin American nations to break ties with Pyongyang. He said he would watch the "foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees".

"These training flights with Japan demonstrate the solidarity and resolve we share with our allies to preserve peace and security in the Indo-Asia-Pacific", the U.S. Air Force said.
