Korea, US Promise Collaboration against N. Korea

Korea, US Promise Collaboration against N. Korea

The statement from Trump came after Pyongyang ridiculed his "fire and fury" remark by calling it a "load of nonsense". The Moon administration "needs to keep telling the USA that it will not accept military action leading to a second war on the Korean Peninsula", said former Unification Minister Jeong Se-hyun during a lecture at the National Assembly on the morning of August 10 that was organized by the Minjoo Party of Korea.

With the intensifying war of words between North Korea and the United States, concerns are growing in Seoul and Washington over a possible U.S. pre-emptive strike. "But if North Korea carries out a sixth nuclear test or launches an ICBM this time, it could really blow up" and lead to a clash, warned Gu Gap-u, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies.

A New York Times article on Friday noted that Trump's supporters claim that a declaration of war against North Korea would be "legally justified as an act of self-defense". There are 11 million people on the Korean peninsula who will immediately suffer death and injury if our leaders do not allow for dialogue and compromise.

The two leaders also talked about countermeasures against North Korea's provocation escalating tensions, he said. Just as Pope Francis said in his World Day of Peace message this past January, we know that "violence is not the cure for our broken world". Amid these developments, NBC quoted multiple current and former American officials in a report stating that a detailed operational plan had been prepared to have B-1B long-range bombers based in Guam launch a preemptive strike on North Korean missile bases, if Trump gives the order.

The Global Times said the exchange of words is such a "reckless game" that may result in dire consequences. China will only remain neutral if Kim Jong-un attacks the US first. That doesn't seem to be the case.

Zolotarev said Pyongyang's threat to target Guam should not be taken lightly. "So, if the North Korean military talks of such plans, it means it actually has them".

On Friday morning, Trump informed the public through his Twitter feed that military solutions are fully in place should North Korea engage in additional provocative actions.

For analysts at SP Angel, Pyongyang's threat to fire missiles near the US Pacific territory of Guam - which might provoke a US reaction - dovetailed nicely with China's plans in the South China Seas and North Pacific.

The relationship between China and North Korea has become strained in the last several years.

North Korea has responded with more chilling threats. However, China has a strong interest in preventing Kim Jong Un's regime being overthrown and losing a key buffer state. Trump's predecessors have declared military attacks on other nations without congressional permission.
