Central Intelligence Agency chief: Not surprising if North Korea tests missile again

But of course the North Korean people have seen their share of fire and fury at the hands of the U.S military. Pyongyang claimed that its latest missile, test-fired on July 4, can deliver a "large, heavy nuclear warhead" to the U.S. continent.

North Korea carried out two tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles last month.

Pyongyang recently said it was working on a plan to launch a medium-range ballistic missile near the U.S. territory of Guam, some 3,200 km from North Korea. Trump has repeatedly stated that the White House has run out of patience with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. But Mattis said Thursday that the American effort was "diplomatically led". North Korea has previously mobilised large crowds to show its resolve when tensions escalate.

They further warned that Trump would be held responsible by Congress and the American people if a "careless and ill-advised miscalculation results in conflict that endangers our service members and regional allies".

I suppose dying is something we all have to do eventually, but I'm talking about a kind of dying that comes on more quickly and unnaturally than we generally expect.

I'm hopeful cooler heads in our military and government will prevail.

"I hope people learn from history and don't repeat that".

The so-called "New York channel" is being used regularly by Joseph Yun, the USA envoy for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission, according to AP.

The White House said in statement early on Saturday that USA military forces "stand ready" to safeguard Guam following North Korea's threat.

China, because of this view, will only do a few things to try and talk North Korea into coming around to a more reasonable posture.

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and to exercise restraint and seek a political settlement.

In recent days، Trump and the North Korean regime have engaged in heated rhetoric about the Asian nation's nuclear weapons program. But China says it alone can not compel Pyongyang to change course.
