Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea

Trump's toothless threats endanger us all

National security adviser H.R. McMaster said Sunday he doesn't think the U.S.is closer to war now with North Korea than it was a week ago.

"And what none of us know is whether President Trump will ultimately accept a position in history which says, "I'm the guy and it was on my watch that this state finally crossed the threshold of constituting a threat to the USA mainland".

They agreed that North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

"These statements are irresponsible and unsafe, and also senselessly provide a boon to domestic North Korean propaganda which has long sought to portray the United States as a threat to their people", read the letter which was spearheaded by Rep. John Conyers of Missouri.

"And this is what you've seen the president do is bring together all nations".

The Labour leader's warning comes after he called on Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to hold direct talks "in the interest of sanity".

Trump on North Korea - Military solutions are locked in place.

And just days before that, the president promised to unleash "fire and fury" on the tin-pot country, should dictator Kim Jong Un continue to make unwelcome advances against the United States.

McMaster was further asked during the interview on Sunday whether the USA was "locked and loaded". "President Trump stated that the United States is ready, along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic, and military measures to achieve that goal", said a readout of the phone call.

"But the goal of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war".
