I Have Tougher Attitude on N. Korea

North Korea is once again threatening to launch missiles toward Guam, the New York Times reports.

The drills came after US President Donald Trump suggested that military action is the only way forward to dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons.

As the United States and South Korea prepared for a joint naval exercise next week, North Korean officials on Friday renewed their threat to launch ballistic missiles near Guam, a us territory in the western Pacific.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure".

CCN reports that the latest warnings from Pyongyang follow weeks of rising tensions, which promise to escalate further when US and South Korea joint naval exercises begin Monday.

The U.S. military said in a separate statement it conducted drills with Japanese fighters after the exercise with South Korea, making it the first time U.S. bombers have conducted training with fighters from both Japan and South Korea at night.

Darjeeling: Several policemen injured in fresh clashes with GJM supporters
State tourism minister Gautam Deb said the state government was determined to establish peace in the Darjeeling hills. There should be a proper inquiry into the violence and the culprits should be booked.

A report in the North Korean official Central Committee newspaper Rodong Sinmun said, "The U.S. and its vassal forces make desperate efforts to block the advance of the DPRK as they are frightened by the high spirit and rapid advance of (Pyonyang) dashing ahead toward the final goal of rounding off the state nuclear force".

Speaking at a White House news conference he said: 'right now we think the threat is manageable, ' but added the situation would become more problematic over time if North Korea's capability 'grows beyond where it is today'.

The article ended with a familiar warning: that the USA would be exclusively responsible for "pushing the situation on the peninsula to the point of explosion". US and South Korean warplanes also will join the exercise.

Thousands of US military personnel remain stationed on the island.

The researcher, Kim Kwang Hak, did not elaborate but recalled North Korea's August warning that it could launch missiles near Guam, home to the USA air base from which the B-1B long-range bombers took off on Tuesday.

On Tuesday Trump discussed "a range of options" with his national security team to respond to North Korea's recent missile and nuclear tests. He said there was already "great concern" about Americans living in Guam.
