Trump threatens North Korea with "big trouble" over Guam

North Korea confirmed the

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", President Trump said on Friday, in his latest salvo in the exchange of rhetoric with the isolated regime.

While tensions typically spike around the dates of the exercises - North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test just days after last year's manoeuvres - the situation generally calms afterward as the North needs to focus on its farms and the approach of the fall harvest.

Trump tweeted Friday morning.

Ba Dianjun, director of the Center for Northeast Asia at Jilin University, underscored that despite the mutual aid and cooperation friendship treaty between China and North Korea, Beijing will not come to help if Pyongyang attacks first.

"Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war, making such outcries as 'the United States will not rule out a war against the DPRK, '" KCNA said.

At the launch, Musk, however, warned that Tesla would face months of "manufacturing hell" as it increases production of the sedan. In addition, two pro-union employees recently spoke out about the potential dangers of the Model 3 production ramp.

"I think you'll see the next thing that we do is to try to shoot one of them out of the air to show them (North Korea) that we're ready for them", says Luetkemeyer.

He then challenged dictator Kim Jong Un directly.

Trump's Defense Secretary James Mattis, tried to be more careful saying that the Pentagon did have military options at hand, but finding a diplomatic solution was still its top priority warning of the consequences of war on the Korean Peninsula.

Now, the president says America is prepared for the war.

Japan and South Korea have also vowed a strong reaction if the North were to go through with the plan to attack Guam. The missile defense program is meant to shoot down shorter range missiles. Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

Jose Mourinho hints at central midfield role for Victor Lindelöf
He said: "We were favourites last season and missed out by 15 points, so being favourites this season means nothing". Mourinho signed the Brazilian for Chelsea back in the summer of 2013, but Willian insists he is happy at Chelsea.

After Mr. Trump was criticized for his saying North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" unlike the world had ever seen, he later doubled down on his remarks a day later, saying perhaps they weren't tough enough.

As North Korea's only real ally, China has more influence than any other nation over the hermit nation.

North Korea has threatened to attack the USA territory of Guam and announced on Saturday that 3.5m people had signed up to join the army over the past week.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Friday that "the risks are very high" that the U.S. and North Korea could go to war, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel said an escalation in language was "the wrong response".

North Korea said it was finalising a plan to fire medium-to-long-range rockets towards Guam, where USA strategic bombers are based, along with more than 160,000 U.S. citizens.
