Trump Turns Tables on North Korea

Trump Turns Tables on North Korea

The dangers of an EMP are debatable, with some claiming that there is no risk of a North Korean EMP attack, given that the North could probably cause significantly more damage with a traditional nuclear strike, and others asserting that an EMP attack could devastate the U.S. After the rogue regime tested a hydrogen bomb early last month, the North claimed that it could trigger an EMP with an atmospheric detonation over the continental U.S. It is unclear if North Korea is actually interested in this approach or simply playing off of hypothetical threats in Western media.

South Korean and USA government officials have been raising their guard against more North Korean provocations with the approach of the 72nd anniversary of the founding of North Korea's ruling party, which fell on Tuesday.

The government said that North Korea should not resume the complex without permission as factories and machinery there belong to the South Korean firms.

North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test in recent weeks as it fast advances towards its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the USA mainland.

The bilateral training mission between the U.S. B-1B bombers and South Korean F-15K fighter jets on Tuesday night followed a September 23 mission in which US bombers and fighter escorts used pre-dawn hours to fly to the farthest point of the border between North and South Korea by any USA aircraft this century.

Hi comments came as North Korea's foreign minister said the U.S. president had "lit the wick of war" with North Korea and his country would be made to pay with "a hail of fire". More ominously, Trump tweeted "only one thing will work" over the weekend.

FireEye experts said that they have yet to observe North Korean hackers using any kind of specialised malware to "compromise or manipulate" industrial control systems.

"The briefing and discussion focused on a range of options to respond to any form of North Korean aggression or, if necessary, to prevent North Korea from threatening the United States and its allies with nuclear weapons", the White House said in a statement on the meeting.

Hamas, Fatah sign reconciliation deal in Cairo
Hamas Chief, Ismail Haniyeh, said that "an agreement was reached today between Hamas and Fatah under Egyptian sponsorship". A senior Fatah leader in the Gaza Strip, Zakaria al-Agha, said that Abbas "will be in Gaza within less than a month".

Ri has previously called Trump "President Evil" and his comments are likely to fuel an escalating war of words between the United States president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Visits by US warships and bombers along with regular joint exercises with the South infuriate North Korea, which considers them a sign of aggression and a rehearsal for an invasion. Trump even said that diplomatic efforts have not worked in dealing with North Korea.

"While I would not characterize them as the best in the world, they are among the best in the world and the best organized", Army Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, told the Senate past year.

Some joint military plans have been rewritten recently in response to tensions with North Korea, according to The New York Times.

England in top tier of new UEFA Nations League
Organisers will use the UEFA ranking system to determine the make-up of four leagues (A , B, C and D) from the 55 teams involved. The four group winners will be promoted to League B , with the four bottom sides relegated to League D for the 2020 edition.

Fears the crisis could spiral into open conflict have risen as the communist state demonstrated rapid progress in its efforts to develop a nuclear-tipped missile that could target the US mainland despite several rounds of punishing United Nations and other worldwide sanctions against it. Other stolen data included contingency plans for South Korean special forces and information on military facilities and power plants, he said.
