Olympics could open North Korea -- Rex Tilley

North Korea has responded in kind, assuring the United States of "total defeat" in the event of a war and claiming it is preparing for an attack on the American military base in Guam in mid-August. "In Daedong County of South Pyongan Province, more than 20,000 students, party members and laborers filed enlistment or reenlistment requests", the newspaper said.

Speaking with Mr. Rose during his trip to Germany, Mr. Obama also said that USA forces were now reanalyzing the strategic positioning of America's missile defense systems.

It comes as Kim Jong-un said he would fire four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles 30km from the coast of the U.S. territory of Guam.

Mr. Obama's comments followed North Korea's fourth nuclear bomb test on January 6, their launch of a long-range rocket on February 7, and a submarine-launched ballistic missile test on April 23.

The missile threat followed harsh words from Donald Trump, who told Kim Jong-un his nation would face "fire and fury the likes of which the world has never seen" if he did not stop his warmongering declarations.

"There are direct threats of deploying [military] power", he said, adding that "the side that is stronger and smarter" should take the first step to defuse tensions.

It would also extend to installation of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system, now deployed in South Korea, or a US PAC-3 Patriot System, used in Israel. "North Korea can't compete with America on any level".

Speaking to RT, Leonid Ivashov, a political analyst and retired Russian colonel-general, said North Korea wouldn't stand a chance against the USA if the conflict entered a military stage.

U.S. military chiefs have called on the RAF to aid an global espionage operation and send British spy planes to conduct surveillance over the Korean Peninsula.
