US President Donald Trump on Friday warned North Korea saying that military solutions against the nuclear-armed regime were “locked and loaded” for use if Pyongyang acted “unwisely”. Issuing an urgent warning to North Korea not to move ahead with its ballistic missile testing, President Trump tweeted, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully, Kim Jong Un will find another path!” He also retweeted a US Pacific Command tweet of pictures showing US Air Force Bomber B-1B Lancers. The tweet by the Pacific Command read, “USAF B-1B Lancer bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfil USFK’s fight tonight mission if called upon to do so.”
The US president’s reactions came shortly after North Korean state news agency, KCNA, put out a statement blaming him for the escalated tensions and accused him of “driving” the Korean peninsula to the “brink of a nuclear war”. The news agency said,”Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war, making such outcries as ‘the US will not rule out a war against the DPRK.”
On Thursday, KCNA news agency said that its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam, to which Trump said Kim was not going to get away with his “horrific” comments and disrespecting America. “Let’s see what he does with Guam. He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody’s seen before, what will happen in North Korea,” Trump told.
Trump, who is currently at his Bedminster home in New Jersey, on a working vacation said, “We are backed 100 percent by our military. We are backed by everybody.. we’re backed by many other leaders. I noticed that many senators and others, today came out very much in favour of what I said. But, if anything, that statement may not be tough enough.”
