If North Korea attacks United States, it 'will regret it fast'

If North Korea attacks United States, it 'will regret it fast'

Tensions have escalated between the USA and North Korea as the communist regime continues testing and expanding its nuclear program, reporting this week that it can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles. Guam's governor, Eddie Calvo, said late Wednesday during an interview on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with fill-in host Brian Kilmeade: "As far as I'm concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury".

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

President Donald Trump is seeking continued help from China's president in addressing the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear developments.

The ongoing talks have included discussions about U.S. "And frankly, you could have said that for the last three presidents".

North Korea said on Saturday that almost 3.5 million workers, party members and soldiers volunteered to join or rejoin its army to resist new U.N. sanctions and to fight against the United States in the current geopolitical tension between Pyongyang and Washington, Reuers reported.

President Donald Trump today reassured Guam it was secure amid mounting regional tensions, vowing that American military forces "stand ready" to safeguard the US Pacific island territory against a belligerent North Korea. Trump's comments, however, did not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remained open.

Saudi King Salman opens doors for Qatari Hajj pilgrims despite ongoing rift
Saudi Arabia will open its land border with Qatar to allow Hajj pilgrims to pass through, its official press agency said. Saudi Arabia, and UAE reportedly tried last month to drag Baghdad into the spat but Abadi pushed off their requests.

Asked Friday if the US was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that". Kim said North Korea would conduct the launches if the "Yankees persist in their extremely unsafe reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity", warning the United States to "think reasonably and judge properly" to avoid shaming itself, KCNA reported. She says Germany would work to find diplomatic solutions with the countries involved, the USA and China in particular, but also South Korea.

Merkel called on the U.N. Security Council to continue to address the issue.

"I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer", Merkel added.

"I wish there would be less partisanship up there, this is a time of threats to the United States", said Calvo.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged Pyongyang and Washington to sign up to a previously unveiled joint Russian-Chinese plan by which North Korea would freeze missile tests and the United States and South Korea would impose a moratorium on large-scale military exercises. Next week's start of U.S. North Korea sees its nuclear arsenal as protection against the United States and its partners in Asia.

He said there had only been a few booking cancellations from South Korea. Washington and Seoul say the exercises are defensive in nature and crucial to deterring North Korean aggression. North Korea claims they're a rehearsal for war. KCNA said on Thursday the North Korean army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land in the sea 18-25 miles (30-40 km) from Guam.
