Bannon is right about North Korea

Senior Counselor to the President Steve Bannon

These also will be the first major exercises since North Korea test-fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles last month, a major advance in its march toward developing a nuclear-tipped missile that could reach the US mainland.

"We can't afford to lose all that we've built from the ashes of the Korean War".

"I can confidently say there will not be war again on the Korean Peninsula".

This prompted Kim to announce a plan to test fire four intermediate-range missiles into waters near Guam - a USA territory in the Pacific that is home to American military bases.

"The most important task at hand is for the USA and North Korea to "hit the brakes" on their mutual needling of each other with words and actions, to lower the temperature of the tense situation and prevent the emergence of an 'August crisis, '" Wang was quoted as saying in the Tuesday conversation.

Provocative language has been in the air between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the US, with US President Donald Trump trading threats with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!"

"Cancelling it would cede into the huge North Korean aim to decouple the allies and drive a wedge between South Korea and the United States", Narang told AFP.

This could make attempts at diplomacy between the two nations even more hard.

Annual military drills involving tens of thousands of US and South Korean troops are due to begin on Monday.

"If North Korea launches another provocation, it will face even stronger sanctions and it will not be able to survive them".

Notably, the statement included an affirmation that Article V of the U.S. -Japan mutual defense treaty would apply to the Senkaku Islands, which Japan administers, but China claims.

"Knowing that North Korea sits with a significant capability already within their grasp, I think it is only prudent that they fully understand the consequences, should they make a bad choice for themselves", Tillerson said.

But stresses conditions "must be appropriate" before the possibility can be seriously consideredPresident Moon announced on August 17 that he would consider sending a special envoy to North Korea if the conditions were right for dialogue.

But South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported the allies were mulling scrapping an initial plan to bring in two aircraft carriers to the peninsula to take part in the drill.

Elected in May, Moon broke with nearly 10 years of conservative rule in South Korea that saw governments deepen the animosity toward the North.

"Against North Korea, even with extreme pressure, it has to be solved peacefully and our opinion and USA opinion about this matter is not different", Moon said.

"At the same time, it is seeking unilateral measures, and I believe President Trump sought to pressure North Korea by showing a firm determination".

"But rather, a recognition that we need to work together and we need to be talking about security issues". We will continue communication with our federal and military partners.

General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held talks with his Japanese counterpart at the defence ministry in Tokyo, wrapping up a regional tour during heightened tensions with North Korea.
