North Korea Says Trump Has 'Lit Fuse Of War'


Tensions over North Korea's weapons programme have soared in recent months with Pyongyang launching a flurry of missiles and conducting its sixth and most powerful nuclear test last month.

South Korean and US military officials have been closely monitoring North Korea following a threat by the regime to conduct a new ballistic missile test.

The compromised documents include wartime contingency plans drawn up by the US and South Korea and also include reports to the allies' senior commanders, Rhee Cheol-hee, a South Korean lawmaker was quoted as saying BBC Tuesday.

"I say the military option is not good", said Kinzinger.

"We are maintaining an upgraded monitoring effort to guard against any developments", the source said.

Apple to partner with LG for foldable iPhone
Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require. The LCD-screen iPhone 8 series phones, which have display sizes of 4.7 and 5.5 inches, went on sale September 22.

A U-2S high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft has been deployed by the U.S. Air Force to monitor potential military movements by the North. The warship is equipped with a SPY-1D radar that can detect a missile launch within a range of 200 miles.

North Korea denied the claim. "Policy didn't work!" the USA president said in a Twitter post on Monday.

White House officials are said to be increasingly concerned by the President's behaviour, both publicly and privately, and are said to be anxious he will start World War III.

Those are the findings of a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, as tensions between the adversaries escalate and North Korea comes closer to its goal of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the continental U.S.

Later at night, Trump told Fox News that the world has reached a situation on North Korea where something has to be done. While Australia underscores maximum diplomatic and economic pressure when dealing with North Korea issues, Defense Minister Marise Payne also stressed Canberra will continue to work with Seoul and Washington highlighting the key is supporting regional security. He has also been fiercely critical of talks with the North, pointing to the fact that 25 years of negotiations were unable to stop the North from developing its nuclear weapons.
