Tillerson: Americans should 'sleep well at night' amid N. Korea crisis

13 August 2017, 07:04 | Taylor George

But asked whether the United States was ready if North Korea did commit a hostile act, he responded: 'We are ready'.

The prime minister says he discussed the threat with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence overnight.

Q: But are you telling me though, Mr. Gorka, that if there is an action by North Korea that is felt by the United States to be threatening, then that is war?

North Korea "should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people", Mattis said in an August 9 statement.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers, a move that if carried out would be its most provocative missile launch to date.

'Let's see what he does with Guam.

U.S. intelligence reports claiming that North Korea has miniaturized a nuclear bomb to fit on top of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States have prompted Trump to threaten massive retaliation if Pyongyang attacks.

In Asia and beyond, President Donald Trump's comment, along with his promise to unleash power "the likes of which the world has never seen", was seen as dangerously provocative brinksmanship that heightened tensions, increased the potential for miscalculation and made diplomacy with Pyongyang even more hard. "Secretary Tillerson is the chief diplomat of the United States, and it is his portfolio to handle those issues".

Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesman Roh Jae-cheon said Thursday that the US and South Korean militaries are prepared to "immediately and sternly punish" any kind of provocation by North Korea, but didn't elaborate on how the allies are preparing.

President Trump Just Trolled Barack Obama's Birthday Celebration Hard
I mean, he could have said this about Mika Burzynski's face. " North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States ". Trump understands the situation with North Korea and supports his strategy in dealing with the country so far.

But the comments about Tillerson and North Korea are no laughing matter. That's the preferred way to deal with it, ' Turnbull said in a radio interview.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's unofficial job title could be translator-in-chief.

After Trump tweeted that "Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower", Sean Spicer, who was White House press secretary, famously explained that "the president used the word "wiretaps" in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities".

China, despite its anger at Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programs, described the situation as "complex and sensitive", and urged calm and a return to talks.

HORSLEY: Tillerson, who's just back from a series of meetings with allies in Asia, says there's no disconnect between that sentiment and the president's tough talk about possible military action.

The comments put Tillerson once again in the role of translating the president's aggressive rhetoric into more diplomatic terms, and of working to minimize the chances of a public panic. "I am looking at two-state, and one-state", he said.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is expected to deliver a speech next week to mark Liberation Day, when the Korean peninsula secured freedom from the rule of Japan. This makes sense given that avoiding direct confrontation with North Korea is probably the only option for avoiding a body count in the tens of thousands if not more.

Trump's "fire and fury" remarks prompted warnings from US officials and analysts not to engage in rhetorical games with Pyongyang.
