  • Trump has warned North Korea it could be in trouble

US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump has said that military plans to deal with North Korea are "locked and loaded".

"Fire and fury" has become "locked and loaded" as President Donald Trump's warnings against North Korea's threats to USA military installations and its nuclear ambitions continue. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" the president tweeted.

"China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US soil first and the USA retaliates, China will stay neutral", the Global Times, which is widely read but does not represent government policy, said in an editorial.

The tensions around North Korea have been high over the recent months and they have escalated further after the tightening of the economic sanctions against North Korea by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Saturday in response to July's launches of ballistic missiles by Pyongyang.

Should North Korea attack the US or one of its allies, Trump said that "things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?" Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said today his government would back the US if North Korea attacked. -South Korea military exercises will continue. North Korea added that Trump's statement was "nonsense" and called him "bereft of reason".

Just a day earlier, North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam.

"He has disrespected our country greatly", Trump said of Kim Thursday. "If anything, maybe that statement [about "fire and fury"] wasn't tough enough", Trump said Thursday. If the missiles are taken down, the United States will have achieved a crushing propaganda victory against North Korea.
