North Korea's grave threat demands concerted effort: McMaster

North Korea Nuclear

North Korea Nuclear

North Korea's leader has delayed a decision on firing missiles towards Guam while he waits to see what the USA does next, the North's state media said on Tuesday, as South Korea's President said Seoul would seek to prevent war by all means.

Trump's latest warning came amid a flurry of global calls - from China, the North's key ally, as well as Russia, Germany, Britain and the United Nations - for the president to show greater rhetorical restraint.

The official, who spoke to Newsweek on the condition of anonymity, said war game scenarios conducted by the USA and South Korea indicated that substantial time would be required to move military assets for an attack on the state.

"It added that the United States and allies were ready "to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any threat". Pompeo touted a unanimous United Nations Security Council vote earlier this month to increase sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear program and said the U.S. had seen China join the USA in demanding that Pyongyang denuclearize. "I have President Trump's back on this".

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already tense situation and to seek a political settlement.

ESPN apologizes for fantasy football auction segment
Obviously, this was a mock fantasy football draft, which is a fun game that millions upon millions of Americans play every year. Shaun King, who is a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, sent this tweet that included a video clip from the auction.

Thursday: He says that his "fire and fury" warning maybe "wasn't tough enough".

The tweet came amid a sharp escalation in tensions between the US and the rogue state, with Pyongyang having earlier threatened to launch missiles at the Pacific island of Guam, where there is a USA military base.

Regional tensions have been soaring after US President Donald Trump warned that North Korea would "truly regret" any hostile action against America. Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" in return.

Officials in Guam have said they are "ecstatic" after Pyongyang appeared to back away from its threat to target the United States territory, which is home to 163,000 people as well as a U.S. military base.

A commentary in the North Korean state-run newspaper Minju Joson called the warnings from Trump and "other riffraff of the USA. the last-ditch efforts and hysteric fit of those who are in the grip of despair" over the "tragic doom" of the "American empire".

Cole Mosier's Kentucky football career over after torn ACL on Saturday
The thing that Cole brought to the table for us was consistency ... not real flashy, but he always seemed to do his job. Losing Mosier will hurt the offensive line, but Young will be a good replacement in Mosier's spot.

Pompeo said the rhetoric from Trump was geared at sending a message to North Korea and letting the isolated nation know that the USA policy of "strategic patience" had come to an end.

But he stressed that the U.S. is pursuing "a very determined diplomatic effort" led by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that's coupled with new financial sanctions to dissuade North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from further provocations. That prompted a new round of United Nations economic sanctions, which angered Mr Kim's regime.

He is expected on Monday to launch a trade investigation into China.

Seoul expressed appreciation for Xi and Trump's phone call Saturday.

"I'd love to see it, but I don't think that's in the cards", Clapper said on CNN's "State of the Union".
