That letter also asked about steps to address humanitarian issues such as the reunification of Korean families separated by the armistice that concluded the Korean War, and the return of remains of USA service members left in North Korea after the war. Indeed, the only viable option to end the current standoff is diplomacy, best exemplified in concrete proposals such as the freeze-for-freeze dictum, which proposes that North Korea freeze its nuclear and missile testing in return for the United States and South Korea halting their annual military exercises. So if anything, maybe that statement wasn't tough enough.

However, when talking about North Korea this week, Trump's statement threatening North Korea "with fire and fury like the world has never seen" is nothing to joke about.

"And I would not fire one missile or drop one bomb against North Korea unless we were ready to finish the job", Graham continued.
