Trump threatens to rain 'fire and fury' on North Korea

President Trump on Tuesday used Twitter to amplify a Fox News report, based on anonymous sources, that us spy satellites had detected North Korea loading two cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's coast in recent days.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United states", said Mr. Trump.

The president said Kim Jong-un would be met with "fire and fury" should he continued to threaten America with a missile attack.

North Korea's nuclear program, which reached an ominous milestone last month with the testing of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching Los Angeles, has prompted some of the Trump administration's worst foreign-policy moments. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump told reporters at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Washington Post first reported that the nation had such capability, based on a Defense Intelligence Agency assessment read to the newspaper it verified with two us officials.

North Korea vowed yesterday that tough new UN sanctions would not stop it from developing its nuclear arsenal, rejecting talks and angrily threatening retaliation against the United States.

President Trump had retweeted a Fox & Friends tweet early Tuesday that had promoted the story.

Trump isn't ruling out a "preventive war" to stop North Korea from being able to threaten the U.S., National Security Adviser H.R. He elaborated, stating: "This is not a 'give me 30 days and we are ready to talk.' It's not quite that simple".

A good performance at Quail Hollow for McIlroy may well lead to us seeing a lot more of Mr Harry Diamond in the coming years. Hopefully that continues and I can keep it up, not just through tomorrow but obviously into next week as well.

Concerns were heightened late last month when tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile indicated Pyongyang may be within a year or two of obtaining the technology to reach the usa with nuclear missiles.

United States spy satellites have detected the North Korean military loading two anti-ship cruise missiles onto a boat on the east side of the country, according to a new report.

Japan's Defense Ministry concluded in an annual white paper released Tuesday that "it is possible that North Korea has achieved the miniaturization of nuclear weapons and has developed nuclear warheads".

The DIA completed the latest analysis on the miniature warhead in July, shortly after another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country's atomic arsenal.

Asked about the report Tuesday morning on Fox, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said she couldn't comment.

Americans' support for military action against North Korea grew from 47 percent two years ago to 62 percent in the council's latest poll. "We must be tough & decisive!"
