North Korea: President Trump's statements are a 'declaration of war'

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations General Assembly yesterday that targeting the USA mainland with its rockets was inevitable after "Mr Evil President" Trump called Pyongyang's leader "rocket man".

In light of this, Ri said North Korea would take counter measures, including the right to shoot down U.S. bombers flying over the Korean Peninsula, even if they did not enter North Korean airspace.

Last week the American president threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea if it attacked the U.S. or its allies, saying "Rocket Man" Kim is on a "suicide mission" for himself and his regime.

Using the world's largest forum - the United Nations General Assembly - Trump publicly lambasted the young Asian despot last Tuesday, referring to him as "Little Rocket Man" whose nation would soon face "utter destruction".

"We are prepared to use the full range of military capabilities to defend the USA homeland and our allies".

He said: "For much too long North Korea has been allowed to abuse the global financial system to facilitate funding for its nuclear weapons and missile programs". Trump tweeted in response to Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho's comments.

James said that people who voted for Trump made a mistake and suggested it was related to a lack of education about the issues. "It is now hitting home even more for me because he is now using sports as the platform to try to divide us", James said .

The 90-second video released on the DPRK Today news site one day after US jets flew over waters east of North Korea, began with images mocking Trump before flashing to a submarine-launched missile striking the USS Carl Vinson, Yonhap News Agency reported.

"We have not declared war on North Korea", said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In July 2016, Pyongyang said US sanctions imposed on Kim were "a declaration of war".

In an unprecedented direct statement on Friday, Kim described Trump as a "mentally deranged USA dotard" whom he would tame with fire.

The back-and-forth messages between North Korea and the United States intensified this weekend as the US military sent bombers and fighter escorts to the farthest point north of the border between North and South Korea. "Evil President" Donald Trump called Pyongyang's leader "rocket man", further escalating rhetoric over the North's nuclear weapons and missile programs.

But Japan's Kyodo News earlier reported that a 3.4 magnitude natural disaster was detected at a depth of zero kilometres near the North's nuke test site, citing China's quake agency.

In another incident in October 2015, an 11-year-old boy died while pushing his sister away from the path of a speedy vehicle. Salone and Danae survived, but they have been badly hurt. "She will probably never see out of her left eye", Brown said.

"This is the farthest north of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) any USA fighter or bomber aircraft have flown off North Korea's coast in the 21st century", White said.

Certainly the petty exchanges between President Trump and Kim have reduced the tensions between the Trump administration and North Korea to nearly childish dimensions, with Kim calling Trump a "dotard", an obscure term implying someone is senile.

That is about 20km (12m) south-east of where the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3, an official from the Korea Meteorological Administration in Seoul said.

US analysts now estimate that North Korea may have as many as 60 nuclear weapons, according to a Washington Post report.

But within days Kim personally responded with his own words of warning in a rare speech quoted by North Korean state media.

The North also threatened to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific.
