Trump Warns North Korea: US Military 'Locked and Loaded'

U.S. President Donald Trump issued a new threat against North Korea Friday morning saying the country's military is 'locked and loaded'.

Mr Trump tweeted that "military solutions are now fully in place", adding: "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

The conflict escalated after a subsequent warning from Trump, using language similar to the North's own frequent saber rattling: If it were to make any more threats against the US, the president said, Pyongyang "will be met with fire, fury, and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before".

But the president did not seem intimidated by a North Korean warning that it was willing to fire missiles at Guam - a strategic US Pacific island - stating that any US response to hostilities should leave the one-party state "very, very nervous". The annual actions, set for August 21-31, typically rile up North Korea.

Tensions between the two countries have escalated these weeks after North Korea tested two inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) in July. If North Korea is seen to be preparing for a launch against Guam, the United States has the option of launching a strike to take them out on the ground.

In the same speech, Trump said he'd favor talks with the hostile nation and more action on the diplomatic front than his White House predecessors.

Trump's comments followed a North Korean claim over state television that it was preparing to fire four missiles towards the U.S. strategic island Guam.

"He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody has seen before -what will happen in North Korea", Trump said Thursday, at his property in Bedminster, N.J., in response to Kim Jong Un's threats to attack the US territory.
