I Have Tougher Attitude on N. Korea

I Have Tougher Attitude on N. Korea

North Korea originally threatened to fire Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles into the waters just short of Guam, the U.S. territory with massive air and naval bases, in August.

The submarine MI arrived in Busan, South Korea, on Friday, and warplanes will also join the exercise, The New York Times reported.

Guam is a major military hub and home to US bombers that periodically fly missions over the divided Korean Peninsula. Only 16 percent of Democrats favor the idea of the US making a preemptive strike on North Korea, while a whopping 77 percent of Democrats oppose it.

Of all voters, 65 percent say the USA should negotiate with North Korea diplomatically, while 29 percent say it's a waste of time.

As the USA continued to display its military might on the Korean Peninsula, on Friday, North Korea unleashed another threat against the U.S.

This week, officials in Washington and Seoul have said that the U.S. and South Korean navies will stage a combined Maritime Counter Special Operation Force (MCSOF) exercise, as well as a drill with U.S. Navy carrier strike groups (CSG), in waters off the east and west coast of South Korea.

Although they did not meet with Kim Jong-un, an interview with Ri-the former commanding general of the North Korean military-is considered the next-best opportunity.

It comes after the USA military flew two strategic bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force late on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure".

North Korea has made similar threats against the United States for decades.

Speaking to Russian news agency TEMs, North Korean foreign Minister Ri accused US President Donald Trump, who was in a verbal attack on country leader Kim Jong-UN and threatened military intervention at every turn, "to fire wick of war".

On Tuesday Trump discussed "a range of options" with his national security team to respond to North Korea's recent missile and nuclear tests.

"Right now we think the threat is manageable", Kelly told reporters, via a live feed.
