Japan installs missile interceptors as N Korea's Guam threat looms



Trump, vacationing at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort, earlier took to Twitter to warn North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that US "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

Support in the sense of the NATO treaty does not inevitably mean that all the allies would send battleships to the South Pacific if Guam were attacked.

In case you thought that the president might have regretted threatening "fire and fury" upon North Korea, you needn't worry.

In an editorial on Friday, China's state owned Global Times newspaper warned that China won't come to North Korea's aid if it launches missiles threatening US soil and there is retaliation - but that China would intervene if Washington strikes first.

"By forcing us, or the police department, to choose between the values of the city and the philosophy of the police department, in community policing, I think it's a false choice and it undermines our actual safety agenda", Emanuel told CNN.

Since becoming president, Donald Trump has relished any opportunity to take credit for improving economic numbers, even as experts say he is just reaping the rewards from the policies put in place by his predecessor Barack Obama. Could North Korea deploy nuclear weapons successfully time after time and hit their intended targets?

The Pentagon said the United States and South Korea would proceed as planned with a joint military exercise in 10 days, an action sure to further antagonise North Korea. It says, if caught outside, do not look at the flask or the fireball. He went on, apparently gleeful about the crisis at hand: "Woe betide anyone who militarily challenges the United States".

Koji Tsuruoka, the Japanese ambassador to the UK, told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "If there is any provocation, it all comes from North Korea". "We hope the phone conversation between the leaders will help resolve the heightened tension and lead to a breakthrough in solution of the problem".

Despite the tough rhetoric, Trump insisted that "nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump". Yet, this is the sort of attention it has craved since the end of the Korean War. For many decades, China has tolerated this humiliating failure as a way of tweaking the United States at low cost. The letter also said that during the appeals process, the allegations of physical coercion were reportedly not investigated, which it said would violate both international law and Muslim Sharia law if true.

Two events could provide triggers for another missile launch.

And finally, North Korea is a measure of China's readiness to lead.

He'd need to get regional allies on board for a war that could bring untold destruction to their countries - when South Korea just elected a dovish president and we don't even have an ambassador in Seoul.

Just forcing the US to talk would in itself be a success for North Korea.

Liberal president Moon Jae-in, elected in May, had vowed to conduct an environmental review of the deployment, which he had questioned while on the campaign trail.

There are also reports that the White House will announce on Monday that it's opening an investigation into China's treatment of intellectual property, though it's not clear what effect pursuing a trade conflict would have on the cooperation between China and the U.S. regarding the North Korea crisis. Our foreign policy has often been a bitter business of choosing among unpromising alternatives and taking one step back for every two steps forward. "Imagine countless skyscrapers and tall buildings collapsing to the earth, millions of people fleeing to mass transit and clogging all exits out of one of the world's largest cities".

Speaking to the Press Association in Bristol, Mr Corbyn said: "We cannot play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats because do you know what - a nuclear explosion doesn't stop at national borders, it doesn't stop at the vicinity where the bomb drops".
