How the US can make North Korea back down

North Korean senior military official chosen to head key bureau to tighten control over military

While most experts have dismissed the Trump administration's reported notion of a "bloody nose" attack on North Korea in response to some provocation as madness that will lead to nuclear war, Blair, who at one point commanded the USA military's Pacific area of operation, disagrees. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claims North Korea, "doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language".

The British government fired back at the USA leader's comments, with a spokesperson for May stating: "The prime minister is proud of having an NHS that is free at the point of delivery", according to Sky News.

In the past week, the director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo also issued a similar warning the Kim Jong Un would in the coming months have the capability of delivering a nuclear missile to any of the major cities in the continental United States. This isn't the first time a USA official has warned of North Korea's nuclear capabilities, but the North responded this time by blaming Washington for escalating tensions, adding the U.S.is considering a pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang.

Since coming to power, the Trump administration has been deliberating over whether to carry out preventive strikes to degrade Pyongyang's ability to sprint to the finish line of acquiring a deployable ICBM that can hit the continental USA with a nuclear payload.

Lavrov said that Moscow has worked to have this conference represent more Syrians, adding that "only the Syrian people have the right to determine their future".

Meanwhile, citing "insulting" behaviour on the part of South Korean media, the North Koreans have cancelled a joint cultural performance with South Korea, scheduled for next week. China is now showing the world it is preparing for an inevitable nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.

The increasing pressure on North Korea also comes amid speculations that the Trump administration is seriously considering a limited military strike on North Korea.

North Korea is highly sensitive to the global community addressing its human rights situation because the communist state sees it as a threat to its regime's survival, he added. It has toned down its threats lately, with its preparations for its participation in the Winter Olympics this month in South Korea. Why would the leadership in Pyongyang assess that this time around would be any different?

A 2.6-magnitude quake struck an area of North Korea where Pyongyang has been conducting its underground nuclear tests. "We need only look at the depraved character of the North Korean regime to understand the nature of the nuclear threat it could pose to America and our allies". North Korean officials blamed Washington for the deployment of nuclear assets in proximity to the Korean Peninsula including nuclear-powered Aircraft carriers and that the Trump administration was planning to carry out pre-emptive strikes against Pyongyang.
