North Korea media grade South's Moon a 'fail'

Moon said, "The United States and President Trump have declared and promised that whatever military action they would like to take, they will fully discuss it with us and get our consent".

Few Republicans take issue with the President's comments on North Korea, but 62% of Republicans believe the President does not think before commenting.

In March, the USA and South Korea conducted another annual joint military exercise called Foal Eagle, which included air, naval, and special operations field exercises.

In the week following the conclusion of Ulchi Freedom Guardian in 2016, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test.

However, Moon said North Korea should stop the development of a fully operational Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). China's Global Times newspaper, a state-run tabloid, was scathing of South Korea's decision to proceed with the drills.

In another statement released by KCNA, the Kim Jong-un regime criticised South Korean President Moon Jae-in, saying that the speech he made on Tuesday, in which he stressed the commitment of the South Korean government to avoid war "at all costs", is pure "sophistry". Moon then said the crisis must "absolutely be solved peacefully".

According to Dr Graham, there has not been a single flight of a B-1B bomber out of Guam to South Korea since August 7, and if the USA is willing to pause those flights, that may be one of the things that brings down tensions. In early August, Pyongyang said it was considering using the weapon to strike Guam after U.S. president Donald Trump stepped up his rhetoric against the regime. Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", later adding that the threat wasn't tough enough.

It did not provide any details on what it meant by "preventive war". "The DPRK must make a choice in favor of to stop self-isolation and to abandon the pursuit of nuclear weapons".

The Japanese Defence Ministry wants to introduce a land-based Aegis missile defence system to address North Korea's missile threats and has chose to seek funding in the next fiscal year to cover the system design costs, a Japanese defence official told Reuters. North Korea's threat to fire into the sea near Guam had prompted Trump to say earlier that the US military was "locked and loaded" if North Korea acted unwisely.

Frazier, who is African-American, said he was acting as both the CEO of Merck and "as a matter of personal conscience". Within hours of his decision to ditch Trump's council, the President lashed out at the executive in a Twitter tirade.

The South Korean leader has warned that Pyongyang completing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and weaponizing it with miniaturized nuclear weapon is "nearing" a red line.

Guam Education Superintendent Jon Fernandez said the main concern at the island's 41 public schools has been to assist parents and teachers in helping students cope with any anxiety related to recent news about threats from North Korea.

Moon's comments follow a spike in animosity generated by North Korea's warning that it might send missiles into waters near the USA territory of Guam, and Trump's warlike language. The two sides have been enemies ever since the 1950-3 Korean War ended with an armistice - no peace treaty was ever signed.
