Guardian: Reports " Donald Trump warns North Korea that US is ‘locked and loaded’..US president continues to escalate threats at North Korea over Twitter during ‘working vacation’ but no troops have been put on higher alert or redeployed "
Lets Get Real:
This is not the crunch time, that will come should NK launch missiles at Guam, one can only hope that NK decides that the best path is to delay such an operation and offer talks to the US, of course the NK Regime will spin it as a victory for them, the rest of the World will know that NK blinked first. The problem would also come up should NK place conditions on those talks, that the planned US and South Korean Army training does not take place this year, that the US can not do, it would look like weakness, and a win for NK. The Trump Oval can not afford to look weak when faced by North Korea and China.
