United Nations envoy slams North Korea's 'reckless' behavior

Military options available to Trump range from a sea blockade aimed at enforcing sanctions to cruise missile strikes on nuclear and missile facilities to a broader campaign aimed at overthrowing leader Kim Jong Un. And we all know that. Pyongyang's military has conducted three ballistic missile tests since US President Donald Trump told reporters the country would be met with "fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which the world has never seen before" if it kept up threats to the US and its allies. "None of us want war", she said on CNN.

The South Korean army chief of staff plans to use a series of bilateral and multilateral meetings to brief his counterparts on the seriousness of North Korea's threats and on Seoul's resolve to cope resolutely with them, his office said. "But we also have to look at the fact that you are dealing with someone who is being reckless, irresponsible and is continuing to give threats not only to the United States, but to all their allies, so something is going to have to be done".

The US Ambassador to the United Nations said on Sunday that sanctions were the UN's last option for containing that programme.

Some doubt Kim - Trump referred to him as "Rocket Man" in Sunday's tweet - will ever agree to give up his arsenal. "We know the leader of North Korea is erratic, to put it kindly".

North Korea has launched a trio of missiles in recent weeks and tested a bomb that was its most powerful to date. "Too bad!" wrote Trump on his Twitter account on Sunday.

Mattis said after Kim tested a hydrogen bomb earlier this month that the US would answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming".

That was followed by a home run from third baseman Justin Turner to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead five pitches into the game. Curtis Granderson broke out of a bad slump with a solo home run in the top of the ninth for his 24 home run of the season.

Feinstein said that a freeze of both its nuclear program and missile arsenal, rather than ending them, would be more palatable to North Korea and to China, who fears the United States goal is toppling Kim.

Mattis said earlier this month, after Kim tested the hydrogen bomb, the United States will answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming".

"We have economically strangled North Korea at this point, and they have said as much", she said.

Still, they were less harsh than those initially proposed by the USA - and Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, spoke ominously of the possible failures of diplomacy.
