Trump's threat merely emboldens North Korea

Trump's threat merely emboldens North Korea”

Believe it or not, Kim's statement actually used gentler language than his propaganda specialists have favored in the past.

Experts believe this is the first time a North Korean leader has made a direct address to an worldwide audience. We should accept North Korea has nuclear capabilities and treat North Korea as we do Pakistan.

A US intelligence official and USA -based non-governmental experts said their initial assessment was that the quake was either natural or connected to North Korea's latest and largest nuclear test on Sept.3, and not caused by a new nuclear test.

The tougher stance follows North Korea's latest nuclear test this month.

North Korea has launched dozens of missiles this year, several of them flying over Japan, as it accelerates a weapons program aimed at enabling it to target the United States with a nuclear-tipped missile.

It said that the U.S. pulling out would send a signal that even if Pyongyang was willing to negotiate, "the USA could not be trusted to honour any deal that was reached".

A magnitude 3.5 natural disaster struck at 4:29 a.m. ET Saturday 22 kilometers (more than 13 miles) east-northeast of Sungjibaegam, North Korea, the US Geological Survey said. "You are protected. Nobody's going to mess with our people".

Analysts in Seoul also saw the statement as a warning that more tests, possibly of the country's developmental intercontinental ballistic missiles, should be expected. "It is truly terrifying if something goes wrong".

Iraq's Kurdish leader vows to conduct independence referendum
In recent years, there have been tensions between Baghdad and Kurdistan over power-sharing, oil revenues and territorial disputes. The United States has proposed unspecified "alternatives" to the vote, to which Barzani has pledged to give a rapid response.

In comments to reporters in New York, North Korea's foreign minister said his country's leader is considering whether to demonstrate his ability to detonate a nuclear warhead aboard a missile sent above the Pacific Ocean.

North Korea says it needs to have a nuclear deterrent because the United States intends to invade it. Analysts say the North is likely to soon achieve its objective of possessing nuclear missiles capable of reaching any part of the USA homeland.

The forceful rhetoric from Pyongyang came after Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea in a speech Tuesday to the General Assembly.

'I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire, ' Kim said in the rare direct statement, referring to Trump.

Trump had recently ordered fresh sanctions over Pyongyang's weapons programmes and even praised China for taking an action to limit financial transactions with North Korea.

Anthony Ruggiero with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank said of Trump's order: "This approach worked with Iran as companies, banks, governments and individuals chose the United States, and likely will restrict North Korea's revenue".

Beijing will also ban imports of textiles from North Korea immediately.

A senior US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Washington was taking Kim's threat seriously and added that any atmospheric test would be a "game-changer".
