Pentagon Ready to 'Fight Tonight' as Tensions Between US, North Korea Escalate

Trump's mix of threats and secret talks with North Korea are 'coercive diplomacy 101'

"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison told the Post.

"Now, North Korea is smaller than [we are]. Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy".

During an appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta Friday, Ellison addressed the recent exchange of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and North Korea, saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than the US president.

"Now, what do you want to do, wait for Hawaii to go up in ruins?" he asked. Can you guess who said it?

Thousands of youths, workers and trade union members gathered in the capital Pyongyang and around the country for rallies, saluting pictures of the country's former dictators, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.

"They're saying, 'All he really wants in the reunification of Korea.' Is that something you think would be good ... to let him reunify Korea into a hellhole?"

The order was issued by registrar of UP Madrasa Shiksha Parishad, Rahul Gupta, who said there was nothing wrong with the order. The programme should be concluded by candies distribution among the students.

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The crisis blew up following the disclosure that USA intelligence analysts had concluded North Korean scientists had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

Kim Jong Un thinks "the nuclear weapons will prevent USA from getting involved", Sun said.

The United Nations Security Council, with encouragement from the US, voted unanimously at the beginning of August to impose new sanctions against North Korea in retaliation for the regime's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

"That's why we see more and more people making the argument that the North Korea's nuclear development is not aimed at the USA, not aimed at South Korea, but aimed at reunification".
