Congress Considers US Options When Dealing With North Korea

Stephen Colbert, for instance, opened Late Show remarking, for the record, that he does not want the earth to blow up, and is nervous about the tension between Trump and North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un.

MARTIN: Asked what would be tougher than fire and fury, and the president responded, you'll see.

Yonhap reported that the North's strategic force in charge of the country's ballistic missiles issued a statement that it is seriously reviewing measures to send a strong message that it can neutralize the USA military bases in Guam that house nuclear bombers and other key assets, with its Hwasong-12 missiles. "Behind this air attack will follow sea and land forces in such numbers and power as which they have not yet seen".

If Trump announces the investigation, it would come at a time Trump and members of his administration have called on China to do more to rein in North Korea amid recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson briefly said the USA was not seeking to change the North Korean regime last week, although he was nearly immediately contradicted by Trump.

The speaker of the Guam Legislature says he hopes the island can defend itself in the event of an attack from North Korea.

"I think people react to the news a lot more strongly now because it's hard to escape", he said Thursday from Los Angeles. Perhaps, but senior administration officials recognize that an armed conflict on the peninsula would be, in the words of Secretary of Defense James Mattis, "tragic on an unbelievable scale".

The MQM leaders during the meeting demanded that their workers in custody be released and their sealed offices opened. PM Abbasi assured the federal government will extend all support for development in the province.

And Graham defended the president's strategy in dealing with the North Korea threat.

"That would send a signal to North Korea and China that would probably do more good to avoid war than anything I can think of". We're not going to contain the threat. "I don't think we are there yet".

It also said that China and Russian Federation should enhance coordination to let other parties know they would not stand aside should their security be threatened by the escalating tensions. That came a day after China and Russian Federation joined with the United States in a unanimous U.N. Security Council vote approving the toughest economic sanctions yet against the increasingly isolated regime.

"Today's news makes clear that much more than these sanctions is required to protect US interests", said Jay Lefkowitz, a former USA special envoy on human rights in North Korea. We're sorry we made fun of you. Said Lois Gillajup of Mount Airy, North Carolina, "As long as it's apes evolving from humans and not the other way around, I guess it's okay".

"You can't survive on $7.25", she said. Watch as it goes over. USA intelligence, by the way, assess that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that could potentially reach California, Oregon, and Washington, three states that didn't vote for guess-who, by the way. In truth, the president has already surrendered his most important tool: the ability to be the final rung on the ladder of escalation. Humphrey also said that Trump is "impaired by a seriously sick psyche", and that "his sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions".

Donald Trump is on a golf vacation (or golfcation, if that were a word), but that hasn't stopped him from fucking things up from the gilded throne of his wifi-enabled bathroom. "I'm sure everything will work out fine".
