Central Intelligence Agency chief: No indication of imminent nuclear war with N. Korea

Trump: Military 'Locked And Loaded' If North Korea Missteps

Trump: Military 'Locked And Loaded' If North Korea Missteps

"I am quite confident that (North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) will continue to try to develop his missile program, so it wouldn't surprise me if there was another missile test", U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo said on "Fox News Sunday".

Pompeo's interview comes after a week of tough rhetoric from President Trump and other Cabinet officials about North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Pompeo said it would not be surprising if North Korea sought to strengthen its nuclear arsenal and even test another missile.

As before, Mr. Trump's statement did not make clear what would constitute an action that would require an American military operation - would the United States take action only in retaliation for an actual attack by North Korea, or would it strike to stop further development of nuclear weapons?

Before that, however, North Korea's military announced it was working on a plan to "contain" the United States air, naval, and missile bases on the Pacific island of Guam by firing four intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBMs) to "envelop" it. "But we're taking all possible actions short of military action to resolve this very grave threat to the United States and the world", the lieutenant general said, citing diplomatic efforts, increased sanctions and increased pressure.

Jose Mourinho hints at central midfield role for Victor Lindelöf
There are not many - there are just a couple - but I thought that", Mourinho told United's official website. They didn't sell, like some were expecting, the top players - (Mesut) Ozil, Alexis (Sanchez).

Friday: The US president warns that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely".

Since July North Korea has been threatening United state mainlands by testing the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM).

The US State Department has announced a ban on all Americans from traveling to North Korea following the death of US college student Otto Warmbier who passed away in June 2017 after 17 months in North Korean captivity.

The United States has estimated that North Korea's total exports stand at about $3 billion annually, but Ri said the figure is likely to be around $2 billion when excluding the clothing processing trade.

"The current situation on the Korean Peninsula is highly complicated and sensitive".

Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (SRC) Stock Rating Upgraded by BidaskClub
Norges Bank purchased a new position in shares of Spirit Realty Capital during the fourth quarter worth approximately $41,964,000. Mizuho cut shares of Spirit Realty Capital from a neutral rating to an underperform rating in a report on Thursday, May 4th.

Mr Trump said the U.S. military was "locked and loaded", while Pyongyang has accused him of "driving" the Korean peninsula to the "brink of a nuclear war".

"China hopes that all related parties... refrain from an old path of flaunting powers and raising tensions", the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson added.

In response, Mr Trump said North Korea should expect "big, big trouble" if anything happened to Guam.

He said the U.S. has a "pretty good idea" of North Korea's intentions, but he declined to provide specifics.

"The United States military is always locked and loaded", he said.

Trump Under Sharp Attack for Failure to Denounce White Supremacists
Virginia's physical violence should not obscure the racially motivated political violence that Trump's presidency feeds on. That's why it is on all of us to stand up to these reprehensible acts and speak out against white supremacy.
