McMaster: US no closer to war with N. Korea in past week

Trump ramps up threats to N Korea, says 'fire and fury' wasn't tough enough

One veteran said the situation is scary, and it sure brought back a lot of memories from his time in service.

"But the goal of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war".

"I ask them both [Trump and Kim] - calm down".

Guam, a Pacific island that is a USA territory, posted emergency guidelines on Friday to help residents prepare for a potential nuclear attack from North Korea, Reuters news agency reported. "There's a lot going on right now a lot of scary things".

"We've had back-channel communication for decades".

Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem at Raiders' Preseason Game
Marshawn Lynch didn't play Saturday night, but he did make a statement in his return to an National Football League game field. Photos show Lynch, who suited up but did not play, sitting on a cooler while holding a banana during the anthem.

The crisis blew up following the disclosure that United States intelligence analysts had concluded North Korean scientists had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

"These helicopters are never mobilized to distribute the Rodong Sinmum [Workers' Newspaper] unless it carries Kim Jong Un's new year's address", RFA's source said, adding that even then a full day is usually required for distribution.

Fred Bell, the vice chairman of the Palm Springs Air Museum, has been analyzing USA and North Korea relations for decades.

"It would be unlike anything we've ever seen, something we'd see in World War II. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" "I think we're not closer to war than a week ago", McMaster said on ABC's "This Week".

"I think it's good that Donald Trump our president is standing up to him finally and making him accountable for his rhetoric", said Vietnam veteran Richard Odenheimer.

The fallout over that Google diversity memo rages on
Ads criticizing Google over firing James Damore have been plastered on benches and bus stops near the company's office in Venice. The document slammed Google's "politically correct monoculture" and advanced gender stereotypes about women in the workplace.

"Wealthy people and people who live in the cities are more anxious than others about Kim Jong Un's nuclear provocations", the source said.

There had been no back-channel talks during the last seven months of President Obama's term when Pyongyang broke them off over a new round of USA sanctions. We have 160,000 people there that belong to us. "We need to be a little careful with that.because if they drop something, we need to be ready.it's a big problem", Rogers said. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is".

"The Central Committee [of the ruling Workers' Party] constantly says that they will keep to their plan to develop missiles and nuclear weapons, and this is escalating a fear of war", RFA's source in Chagang said.

Officially and publicly, the only real "diplomacy" being countenanced by the Trump Administration on North Korea are the president's daily Tweets vowing "fire and fury" and widespread devastation. "Kim Jong Un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader; well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is".
