North blames USA for its recent nuke test

USA officials declined to discuss operational planning, but acknowledge no existing plan for a pre-emptive strike could promise to prevent a brutal counterattack by North Korea, which has thousands of artillery pieces and rockets trained on Seoul.

"Military action would certainly be an option".

The reporter asked President Trump if war is inevitable and whether he would "tolerate a nuclearized North Korea that is contained and deterred but still nuclear".

The US condemnation of the North Korean nuclear and missile tests, which violate the UNSC resolutions, was actually meant to hide Washington's own warmongering nature, the official stated, adding that his country develops weapons only to protect itself.

It's the unlikely friendship between a former Bulls star and North Korea's leader, that might just save the world from nuclear disaster.

"No matter how the U.S. and its puppets kick up a ruckus, our republic, which has a strong military and the most powerful Juche bombs and weapons, and whose territory has all turned into fortresses, and all its people armed to the teeth, will remain an eternal iron-clad citadel", it said.

South Korea's new President Moon Jae-in, who is in favour of talks, has now accepted the U.S.'s missile defence system, THAAD, which is opposed locally by many South Koreans.

"While I do appreciate and respect the mediation, I would be willing to be the mediator", Mr Trump said alongside Sheikh Sabah. And each day, new equipment is delivered; new and attractive equipment, the best in the world - the best anywhere in the world, by far.

Speakers at the rally said the North's military "will put an end to the destiny of the gangster-like USA imperialists through the most merciless and strongest preemptive strikes if they and the hordes of traitors finally ignite a war", KCNA reported. "But I can tell you that North Korea's behaving badly, and it's got to stop".

He pointed to the Iran nuclear deal, which was negotiated successfully by the Obama administration but has looked fragile under Trump, saying "if the USA had spent even one fifth of the time and effort on the North Korean issue compared with the Iranian case, then the North Korean nuclear issue could have been resolved". Xi then spoke on the phone with Trump on September 6 and with Merkel on September 7.

There has been no sign the White House, which has been cool to the idea of talks and hopes that pressure can change the North's calculus, is ready to settle for a containment strategy. Even unarmed, the missile's reentry vehicle would pose a huge threat to maritime life and traffic as it blazes through the atmosphere at many times the speed of sound. We'll come together very quickly.

"The message changes from day to day and for myself, I'm not quite sure what the policy is", Rep. Jim McGovern of MA said.

The Qatari government has denied it supports terrorist groups, and Saudi Arabia itself has been accused of underwriting extremists.
