North Korea funding nuclear arsenal through arms firm

"Despite attempts by some US officials to calm sentiment, fears of escalating military tension between North Korea and the USA are dominating market attention", Dirk Willer, the head of emerging markets strategy at Citigroup, said in a research note on Friday, reports The New York Times.

The programme also examines the family feud that led leader Kim Jong Un to order the audacious assassination of his elder half-brother Kim Jong Nam at Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur airport six months ago.

While on vacation at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump on Friday tweeted further heated warnings to North Korea.

The missiles are created to carry nuclear weapons but it is not clear if the North has warheads small enough to fit on them, or the technology to bring them back to earth in one piece. The world's first atomic bomb, used on 6 August 1945, killed 140,000 people in Hiroshima, with the bombing of Nagasaki killing 70,000 more just three days later.

"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely". "The risks of an unintended escalation into full-blown conflict are too great for the whole world".

"Our government must not drag our country into any military action over the Korea crisis, including joint exercises", he wrote in the Sunday Mirror. A panel co-hosted by the American Civil Liberties Union brainstormed ways to respond if a military crisis broke out and the Trump administration were to respond by curtailing civil liberties.

He added: "We can not play fast and loose with nuclear weapons and nuclear threats".

Earlier this week Donald Trump vowed that Washington would respond to further threats with "fire and fury", while Pyongyang has accused the U.S. president of "driving" the Korean peninsula to the "brink of a nuclear war".

Though Ellison tried to walk back initially comparing the President of the United States to the unhinged dictator of North Korea, his underlying thoughts seem alarming. "Hopefully, Kim Jong-un will find another path!" "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.

Should it? Guam is American soil.
