US, Allies 'Will Not Be Intimidated' by North Korea

Multiple top Trump advisers said Friday there are military options available for dealing with the North Korea crisis, despite some experts and former Trump allies saying that there are no good options for the region.

Adding it is not the preferred option, he urged all nations to do more to rein in the North, which he called "one of the world's most urgent and risky security problems". "And at that point, there's not a whole lot the Security Council is going to be able to do", Haley said.

President Donald Trump has derided the U.N for its "utter weakness and incompetence" and even pledged to cut USA taxpayer funding that contributes to its budget. After the new sanctions were imposed Monday, North Korea called for the Security Council to be broken up, accusing it of being a "tool of evil" working for the United States.

"President Moon ordered [the military] to closely analyze and increase the readiness posture against new types of threats from North Korea, such as EMP [electromagnetic pulse] and biochemical threats", presidential spokesman Park Su-hyun said.

North Korea fired the intermediate-range ballistic missile over Japan that landed in the Pacific, responding to new United Nations sanctions with its furthest-ever missile flight. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbours and for the entire world community", he said.
