Defense Stocks in Focus Post Trump's North Korea Remarks

Friday morning on Twitter, the president wrote: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

And island dwellers say they fear a powerful typhoon more than the wrath of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

In another move that could further fan the flames, satellite photos posted by defence expert Joseph Bermudez suggested that North Korea could be preparing for fresh submarine-based ballistic missile tests.

The tough talk capped a week in which long-standing tensions between the countries risked abruptly boiling over. He added saying China is ready to pay the price, however, the aim of such sanctions should be to bring North Korea to the negotiating table.

"Guam is located in a key position in the Pacific for the US military".

Trump also warned North Korea it should be "very, very nervous" of the consequences if it even thinks of attacking USA soil, after Pyongyang said it was readying plans to launch missiles toward the Pacific territory of Guam.

But restraint was not the word of the day on Friday as Trump sent out a cascade of unscripted statements, including what appeared to be another red line - the mere utterance of threats - that would trigger a US attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for Kim.

Trump also met with his national security team and told reporters he's still hoping for a "peaceful solution".

She said that if North Korea attacks first, they will be "wiped out" by the U.S.

"Guam is the largest island between Hawaii and the Philippines and it has a natural deep seawater port", says Robert Underwood, former Guam delegate to the U.S. Congress and current president at the University of Guam.

Despite tensions and talk of war, life on the streets of the North Korean capital remains calm.

Instead he promised to respond to the next provocation from North Korea with what many assumed to mean nuclear force. According to CNN, South Korea's military has detected no preparations for a missile launch from the north, and experts suspect the real goal of the threat is geopolitical theatre. She declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S.in case of a military conflict with North Korea and called on the U.N. Security Council to continue to address the issue.

"Hopefully it will all work out", he said later in the day. In Pyongyang's opinion, this step will be aimed at deterring the United States forces in the Asia-Pacific region.

Nor is it clear that the North Koreans would actually want to wipe Guam off the map, even if they could. Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo says he coordinates with Homeland Security and the USA military on preparedness procedures.

Trump's latest messages were issued despite a letter signed by more than 60 members of Congress asking Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to do everything in his power to ensure the president and his administration use "caution and restraint" in statements directed at North Korea.

When asked by a reporter Friday about reports of back-channel diplomacy, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Patrick Murphy said he didn't "have anything to comment" but added, "Now is not the opportunity for dialogue because we have not seen North Korea's willingness to address. fundamental problems" that include the development of missile and nuclear programs "in defiance of the worldwide community".
