  • North Korea leader Kim Jong Un supervises a test-fire of a ground-to-ground ballistic missile

President Trump on Tuesday used Twitter to amplify a Fox News report, based on anonymous sources, that us spy satellites had detected North Korea loading two cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's coast in recent days. At a briefing on August 8, Trump said that any further threats from the North Koreans would be met with "fire and fury".

During an hour-long phone call, Moon and Trump said they would continue cooperating to rein in North Korea, particularly ahead of a regular joint military drill set for late August, South Korean presidential office spokesman Park Su-hyun told a media briefing. "They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before".

The Defense Intelligence Agency and Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment on the report, but the analysis matches a Japanese defense assessment this week that said it is possible North Korea has achieved the hard task of miniaturization.

Tension over North Korea's nuclear capability rose to new heights after the United Nations Security Council unanimously passed a resolution over the weekend to expand sanctions aimed at cutting North Korea's ability to fund its nuclear weapons programme.

"The best signal that North Korea could give us that they're prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in the Philippines Monday. The Post also reported that another intelligence assessment estimated that North Korea now has up to 60 nuclear weapons, more than previously thought.

England vs South Africa, fourth Test
The review came instantly, but could not save the Yorkshire batsman, whose brilliance did not result in a fourth Test century. On Bairstow's watch, England had added 102 runs to their overnight 260 for 4 to turn a dicey position into a dominant one.

The move came in response to North Korea's latest missile launches in July, which it, as well as South Korea and the USA, claimed were intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests.

Officials at the agency would not comment Tuesday on the report. If he strikes the United States, is that something he can win?'

North Korea recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that is believed to be capable of hitting the USA mainland. It's frighteningly relevant now, as Trump levels threats against North Korea.

"We strongly urge the United States to immediately correct its relevant wrong moves to avoid affecting bilateral cooperation on the relevant issue", he said in June.

This combination of prudence and pressure is less emotionally satisfying than the simplicities and saber-rattling of the first few months of the Trump administration.
