Trump chose his own words for 'fire and fury' remarks

But the United States and North Korea have weapons far more unsafe than sabers.

Though Trump repeated his refrain that if North Korea made good on its plans to fire missiles near Guam, "there's gonna be big, big trouble in North Korea", he ultimately struck a more positive note.

"China should make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten US territories and triggers USA retaliations, China will stay neutral".

"This is a decision that we are going to take very soon", he said from his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he is on vacation. Using the initials for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, he added: "The DPRK regime's actions will continue to be grossly overmatched by ours and would lose any arms race or conflict it initiates".

"Nothing has changed with our nuclear warheads or bombs in any significant way that makes them more powerful", said Todd Harrison, a defense budget analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "We're getting very close". I think I've had great support, or I've had great support from that community.

"It's too much grandeur, bluster", said Richard Ridenhour, an Army veteran who served three tours in Iraq.

The decision will not only take action against alleged Chinese violations of United States companies' intellectual property rights, but also could be perceived as an attempt by the United States government to crank up the pressure on China to leverage its influence in tempering North Korea's increasingly aggressive posture.

Trump responded. "Nobody loves a peaceful solution better than President Trump, that I can tell you".

President Donald Trump was speaking in his own words when he vowed to retaliate against North Korean aggression with "fire and fury", a blunt warning that aides said was largely spontaneous but reflected his growing anger with Pyongyang's rising nuclear capabilities.

As The Toronto Star noted, Trump's rhetoric during his North Korea remarks Tuesday ― specifically that the US would issue a response "like the world has never seen" ― closely mirror statements he's made before on food prices, the Chinese military and his grassroots campaign, among other things. The Trump administration has definitely not exhausted the option of diplomacy. "The whole of the Security Council has come together behind that, and I think that we should see the President's public comments as one of the strands, one of the many strands of USA activity". "He has genuine concern about the direction of events in North Korea".

The report quotes Xi as saying: "At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula". So it's a very bad place for America to be in when our executive branch doesn't seem to know what it's doing.

TL: If they're not executed, yes. "That's my responsibility", Mattis told reporters as he flew to Seattle for meetings with tech industry officials. At some point either Trump is going to have to reverse himself and damage credibility, or he's going to feel compelled to execute on those threats, which could cost the lives of a lot of people.
