Trump: Military solutions 'locked & loaded' against North Korea

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA-Chinese President Xi Jinping made a plea for cool-headedness over escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea in a phone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump on Saturday, urging both sides to avoid words or actions that could worsen the situation.

However, this is limited by Article Six, which says that this mutual assistance obligation applies only to attacks "on the territory of any of the Parties in Europe or North America" or "on the territory of or on the Islands under the jurisdiction of any of the Parties in the North Atlantic area north of the Tropic of Cancer". Then, North Korea's state-run news agency said the regime was considering a plan for an enveloping fire around Guam to signal a crucial warning to the U.S. It would spell the end of the Kim dynasty (Kim Il-sung 1912-94; Kim Jong-il 1941-2011; Kim Jong-un 1984- ), and could cause a tremendous disaster in South Korea, maybe also in Japan - if North Korea were able and willing to launch a nuclear attack on its former colonial master.

Told how beautiful Guam looked in all the news coverage by Trump, Governor Calvo responded that, "It's a paradise - we got 95 percent occupancy and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110 percent occupancy". Trump said he condemned "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". Calvo, in response, said he has "never felt more safe or more confident" than with Mr. Trump at the helm.

"You should listen to the President; the idea that Secretary Tillerson is going to discuss military matters is simply nonsensical", Gorka said.

But pushing the envelope, or just threatening to do so, is what North Korea does best.

Others facing execution include Ali al Nimr, charged with setting up a Blackberry page named "The Liberals" and posting photos of the demonstrations and inviting people to participate; Munir Adam, a partially deaf and blind 20-year-old; and two others who were juveniles, the laureates said.

Trump began his Friday barrage with an especially fiery tweet: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

There are also reports that the White House will announce on Monday that it's opening an investigation into China's treatment of intellectual property, though it's not clear what effect pursuing a trade conflict would have on the cooperation between China and the U.S. regarding the North Korea crisis. Those talks would involve North and South Korea, the United States, China, Russia and Japan. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!".

"The Chinese leader expressed Beijing's willingness to maintain communication with the US to appropriately resolve the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, " the network reported. He said in a statement, "Men and women from state and local agencies will be in Charlottesville [on Saturday] to keep the public safe, and their job will be made easier if Virginians, no matter how well-meaning, elect to stay away from the areas where this rally will take place".

This is also the case with South Korea, which sent the highest number of troops to Vietnam after the United States.

CRAYMER: Yes, it's sort of something that you really have to think about.

The governor of Guam, Eddie Baza Calvo, posted a video on Facebook of himself speaking with Trump.

Who are the real losers in all of this?

China has been serving as an economic lifeline for the North through decades.

Despite the tough rhetoric, Trump insisted that "nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump". I think it's at the back of most people's minds.

He later retweeted a posting from U.S. Pacific Command that showed B-1B Lancer bomber planes on Guam that "stand ready to fulfil USFK's #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so". "Imagine countless skyscrapers and tall buildings collapsing to the earth, millions of people fleeing to mass transit and clogging all exits out of one of the world's largest cities".
