US Vice President: US will work with Japan on DPRK

21 April 2017, 02:12 | Winston Chapman

A ranking US senator said the USA should launch a preemptive strike on North Korea if that's what it takes to stop Pyongyang from building a missile capable of hitting America, even though such military action would mean war. As the brown bomber jacket-clad vice president was briefed near the military demarcation line, two North Korean soldiers watched from a short distance away, one taking multiple photographs of the American visitor.

Pence told reporters Monday that Trump was hopeful China would use its "extraordinary levers" to pressure the North to abandon its weapons program. But the vice president expressed impatience with the unwillingness of North Korea to move toward ridding itself of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

The Trump administration has articulated a tougher approach toward North Korea in recent days, saying it has lost patience with Pyongyang's intransigence in the face of long-standing demands to curb its nuclear ambitions. GEORGIA CONGRESSIONAL RACE Democrat Jon Ossoff leads a field of 18 candidates in Tuesday's election for the Georgia congressional seat vacated by Trump's health secretary, and a win by the political novice in a reliably Republican district could spell trouble for the Republican president.

He ensured military personnel that under Donald Trump "the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready".

North Korea will continue to test missiles regularly and any military action against it by the United States would prompt "all-out war", a senior North Korean official tells the BBC.

The singing was followed by footage of its test-firing of a missile in February which, in the video, was joined by other missiles shooting into sky, passing over the Pacific and exploding in giant balls of flames in the United States.

Pence and Aso said they believed the dialogue could yield opportunities to create new jobs on both sides and to fortify the economic aspects of the alliance.

From the wind-swept deck of a massive aircraft carrier, Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the USA military, promising it would make an "overwhelming and effective" response to any use of conventional or nuclear weapons. United States officials believe that this factor also complicates the shoot-down strategy.

Pence has met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. "But dialogue for the sake of having dialogue is meaningless".

Pressure on North Korea is crucial, the prime minister said.

USS Carl Vinson Wasn't Sailing to Deter N. Korea as Announced
South Korean presidential candidate Hong Joon-pyo told The Wall Street Journal of the carrier mix-up: "What Mr. To counter the potential threat, and position the U.S.to launch a potential retaliatory strike, the U.S.S.

"The USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group, which includes Aegis-equipped destroyers, is headed for the Korean peninsula", the report noted. "We will be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis".

Earlier this month, the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed bipartisan legislation calling for relisting North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Pence on Monday had traveled to the tense zone dividing the two Koreas, where he warned North Korea's leaders that after years of testing the USA and South Korea with its nuclear ambitions, "the era of strategic patience is over".

When BBC's John Sudworth asked Han's message for Trump, he said, "I would tell him that if the United States encroaches on our sovereignty, then it will provoke an immediate counter-reaction". "We have reached the final stage of preparations to test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile", Kim said, adding that, "Research and development of cutting edge arms equipment is actively progressing". The tests have grown in sophistication each time, U.S officials said.

The officials weren't authorized to speak publicly on the results of the policy review and requested anonymity.

There has been some confusion over the whereabouts of a USA aircraft carrier group after Trump said last week that he had sent an "armada" as a warning to North Korea even as the ships were still far from Korean waters.

Another official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an intelligence matter, said the missile was a Scud variant that the US calls a KN-17.

U.S. defence secretary Jim Mattis warned that North Korea's latest failed missile launch was a reckless act of provocation and assured allies in Asia that America was ready to work to achieve a peaceful denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

Beijing is Pyongyang's only major ally and biggest trade partner.

The probability of Aegis interceptors missing a North Korean target would be embarrassing for the U.S. and embolden Pyongyang.

In a VOA interview, he said "our allies want to see us react and want to see us get tougher, and not just let these things roll off our back". Trump tweeted on Sunday.
