Sebastian Gorka Just Increased The Chances of Nuclear War

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives at a military base in Subang Malaysia Tuesday Aug. 8 2017

Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio was in Jacksonville on Wednesday and strongly defended President Donald Trump's handling of the North Korean crisis.

When asked about the threats, the president, who is spending much of the month at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., cautioned Pyongyang about attacking the United States and its allies.

CLAMAN: It's now big enough that Heather Nauert, the spokesperson for Rex Tillerson was asked about it, she even said as she was walking to the press event there that she was told about it.

Gorka characterized Tillerson's input on military matters as "nonsensical".

Rex Tillerson has had to make several tricky diplomatic tours since becoming USA secretary of state.

"North Korea has said they wish to annihilate the United States and use nuclear weapons". Ben Cardin, the Foreign affairs committee's top Democrat, compared Trump's comments to those issued by North Korea itself.

USA stocks extend fall on North Korea tensions, S&P down 1pct
Snapchat parent Snap Inc.(SNAP), Nordstrom Inc.(JWN), News Corp.(NWS.AU) and Nvidia Corp.(NVDA) will report after the close. Gold futures surged Wednesday, logging their best one-day gain since May, as the US and North Korea exchanged threats.

If the missiles were actually launched at Guam - North Korean officials hope to drop them about 40 kilometers offshore - it would be the first time North Korean missiles landed so close to an American territory, and it would force the USA military to decide if it would attempt to shoot them down. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

Recent US rhetoric has heightened global concerns that Trump might now be thinking more seriously about a pre-emptive strike on Pyongyang's nuclear facilities. Following off-the-cuff remarks made by President Trump, threatening "fire and fury, the likes of which the world has never seen before", if North Korea continues to threaten the United States, North Korea retaliated in the war of words. It also said that the two "reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Washington knows it would be wise to try to bring other key parties, especially Beijing, on board for any intensified measures. In addition, Beijing fears that the collapse of order in North Korea could lead to instability on the North Korea-China border, a potentially large influx of refugees that it would need to manage, and ultimately the potential emergence of a new pro-US successor to Kim.

Nancy Soderberg, a UNF faculty administrator and a candidate running for Congress, has recently responded to Trump's reaction on her campaign website.

The tough talk capped a week in which long-standing tensions between the countries risked abruptly boiling over. This could shift USA attention further from the wider regional agenda, including South China Sea tensions, which remains crucial to Washington's Southeast Asia friends.
