Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

Even though North Korea has conducted 80 missile tests under Kim Jong-un it has never before launched a missile toward a target as far as Guam the U.S. island territory. On Thursday the North declared its intent to do exactly that

Ellison, the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, initially made the comment at a panel during the left-wing activist gathering Netroots Nation in Atlanta, Georgia.

During an appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta Friday, Ellison addressed the recent exchange of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and North Korea, saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than the US president.

We should challenge Kim to present a new face to the world and offer to come in and provide whatever assistance they need to make the whole thing a success.

"You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison said.

North Korea in its current form traces its roots back to the end of World War II when the Korean Peninsula was split in two: The Soviet Union controlled the north, and the US controlled the south.

It also follows a report from The Washington Post that said North Korea had developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead small enough to mount on an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The KPA spokesman went on to say the plan could be put into practice "any moment" once Kim Jong-un decides to move forward with it.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stressed diplomacy and said there was no immediate threat of danger، while Defense Secretary James Mattis، a former military general، said North Korea risked "the end of its regime and the destruction of its people" if it did not "stand down".
