Trump has warned North Korea it could be in trouble

US President Donald Trump issued another warning to North Korea on Friday with a reference to American weapons as being "locked and loaded".

That prompted a defiant Pyongyang to threaten a missile attack on Guam, a tiny USA territory in the Pacific that is home to a major United States air and naval facilities.

In a tweet, Trump said, "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" the president tweeted Friday morning, amid escalating tensions this week. "Maybe it wasn't tough enough", Trump said Thursday.

What happens if North Korea launches against Guam?

"It's about time someone stood up for the people of our country", he added.

Just a day earlier, North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency said its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam. He did not comment on whether the considering a pre-emptive strike on North Korea. If the missiles are taken down, the United States will have achieved a crushing propaganda victory against North Korea.

Insider Trading at Cypress Semiconductor Corporation?
A month ago, they told us to expect earnings of US$0.22 per share while three months ago their EPS consensus estimate was US$0.22. Ny State Teachers Retirement System owns 0.01% invested in Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY) for 381,627 shares.

The Korean Central News Agency reported that the proposal would be forwarded to leader Kim once plans had been finalised.

As North Korean ballistic missiles are liquid fueled, they take some time to prepare for launch, unlike solid fueled ICBMs deployed by the United States and Russian Federation that can be launched on command.

But the president's rhetoric appeared to have little effect, with North Korean state media quoting Kim as calling Trump "bereft of reason" and talking a "load of nonsense".
