North Korea Says Trump Lit 'Fuse of War', Russian News Agency Reports”

The North Korean authorities were reported to have told one of the delegates that they were preparing the next test launch with a new intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the west coast of the US.

Russian state news agency Tass says North Korea's foreign minister has described his nation's nuclear weapons as a "sword of justice".

He said the amount of computer data taken was not as large as the leak of secret materials by Edward Snowden, a worker for the National Security Agency.

The dangers of an EMP are debatable, with some claiming that there is no risk of a North Korean EMP attack, given that the North could probably cause significantly more damage with a traditional nuclear strike, and others asserting that an EMP attack could devastate the U.S. After the rogue regime tested a hydrogen bomb early last month, the North claimed that it could trigger an EMP with an atmospheric detonation over the continental U.S. It is unclear if North Korea is actually interested in this approach or simply playing off of hypothetical threats in Western media.

On Monday, Trump's Defense Secretary James Mattis said at the annual meeting of the Association of the United States Army that the U.S. Army should "be ready" for a potential war with North Korea.

Lee said that 235 gigabytes of military documents were taken, but the military has yet to identify 80 percent of the documents that were compromised.

A ministry spokesman declined to confirm the report, citing intelligence matters. The operations included simulated bombings on both sides of the peninsula and a nearly three-hour mission. It has been accused of launching high-profile cyber-attacks including the 2014 hacking of Sony Pictures. The attackers reportedly gained control of the documents in September 2016.

The minister also lashed out at a tough new package of UN sanctions brought in last month.

Monroe believes that proliferation will be rapid, and as early as 2030, "we will have spurted from eight to about 20 nuclear weapons states, mostly our allies, which formerly relied on the deteriorating U.S. nuclear umbrella".

He has threatened to "totally destroy" the nation if necessary and called Tillerson's efforts to reach out to the regime a waste of time.

In addition to the missile tests, it has conducted six nuclear tests since 2006, including the most powerful one on Sept. 3.

"This is something they have really perfected as an art against South Korea".

The Air Force said Tuesday's overflight demonstrated how U.S. military forces "are always ready to defend the American homeland and how the U.S. stands resolutely with Japan and [South Korea] to honor their unshakeable alliance commitments to safeguard security and stability".
