On Friday, a researcher at the Institute for American Studies at the North Korean Foreign Ministry warned that the joint exercise, as well as a flight by two US B-1B bombers over South Korea on Tuesday, compelled the North to "take military counteraction".

North Korea is once again threatening to launch missiles toward Guam, the New York Times reports.

North Korean state media on Friday renewed a threat to launch missiles towards the USA territory of Guam, warning that "reckless moves" by the U.S. would compel Pyongyang to take action.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure".

"We can't let this to go on".

Out of the survey recipients, 65 percent of people think that the way Trump has handled the situation has made things worse while only eight percent of people say his comments have made things better. The president banged out a tweet Friday wishing the US Navy "happy birthday", while adding he has "no greater privilege than to serve" as commander-in-chief of the US military.

However, since the only possible way to resolve an impasse like the one we currently find ourselves in, is through long, patient diplomacy, I am more than a little concerned that diplomatic success may not be within the reach of an administration that now refers to the leader of North Korea as "Little Rocket Man".

Equally, if Kim Jung-un were to attack South Korea or another American ally, the U.S. would destroy North Korea - and he knows it.

Experts speculate that Pyongyang could launch in the next few days a new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) coinciding with the Chinese Communist Party Congress, which starts on October 18th, or in the face of Trump's visit to the region. It said the copy shop did this on September 26 "ahead of the 72nd founding anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea" that was celebrated on Tuesday, Oct. 10.

By all indications, another North Korean provocation is inevitable - perhaps imminent.
