North Korea says Trump has 'lit fuse of war': TASS

Trump has been tough on North Korea as the regime has fired a series of ballistic missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in recent months.

Robert Gates warns that the inflammatory statements could lead to military conflictUS President Donald Trump's provocative tweets about North Korea are drawing an outpouring of concern.

After Pyongyang launched a missile test that flew over Japan in late August, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said the test was "a meaningful prelude to containing Guam", which it called the "advanced base of invasion" for US forces. A South Korean lawmaker said Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017, that North Korean hackers may have stolen highly classified military documents that include U.S. -South Korean wartime "decapitation strike" plans against the North, according to South Korean media reports.

Trump made the remark in response to a question about whether he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are on the same page on how to deal with the communist regime.

Officials feared the rogue nation would test another missile or nuclear bomb on Monday or Tuesday as North Korean citizens celebrated the 11th anniversary of the country's first nuclear test and the foundation of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea. Days later, Ri claimed the threats amounted to a "declaration of war" against Kim's regime.

The South Korean companies that operated in Kaesong also benefited by employing low wage North Korean workers to produce labor-intensive goods, such as clothes and utensils.

In a surprising sign of weakness, the commentary also says that if NATO would join the United States in the Korean Peninsula it would "change the balance of forces" against it.

US Air Force Major Patrick Applegate said: 'Flying and training at night with our allies in a safe, effective manner is an important capability shared between the US, Japan and the Republic of Korea and hones the tactical prowess of each nations' aviators'.

"The Korean-American relationship is very important and our visit to Chinhae gives us the opportunity to strengthen the outstanding relationship that exists between the U.S. and [South Korea]", said Cmdr. "They sincerely want to reopen of the complex through immediate normalization of inter-Korean relations", said Kim with the Kaesong Industrial Complex Association.

"I think I have a little bit different attitude on North Korea than other people might have", he told reporters at the start of talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the White House. They believe that the outcome of this is that Mideast politics cannot permit Iran to be the sole regional possessor of nuclear weapons. No action by the North was observed during the 12-hour mission.
