Guam Catholics pray for peace amid North Korean missile threats

14 August 2017, 12:22 | Terri Saunders

Mr Rudd said Mr Trump was unique to past United States presidents dating back to 1993 who have dealt with the North Korean regime because he sees a virtue in his own strategic unpredictability.

Still, the mere threat of striking Guam with missiles perhaps loaded with a miniature nuclear warhead goes beyond all reason and must be abandoned immediately by the leadership of North Korea.

The Trump administration has been quietly engaging in the back-channel communication for several months, discussing Americans imprisoned in North Korea - including University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier - as well as the battered current state of relations, the Associated Press reported yesterday.

Perry said that arrangement could ease tensions that have only heightened this week after both President Trump and dictator Kim Jong Un touted their military strength.

"The congressmen said such statements had dramatically increased tensions with North Korea and raised the specter of nuclear war".

Meanwhile, James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, said he feared the president's rhetoric could "spiral" out of control into a global conflict.

I suppose dying is something we all have to do eventually, but I'm talking about a kind of dying that comes on more quickly and unnaturally than we generally expect.

"I hope people learn from history and don't repeat that". -North Korean relations and Americans imprisoned in North Korea, the source said.

The escalation in rhetoric between the two countries has led President Trump to warn Pyongyang that he now has in place operational plans to attack North Korea should it dare attack Guam.

On Tuesday, Trump responded to news of North Korea's expanded nuclear capability in the measured and reasoned voice we have come to expect from our leader - just kidding.

China, because of this view, will only do a few things to try and talk North Korea into coming around to a more reasonable posture.

Xi for his part urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and seek a political settlement to the standoff, according to the Chinese foreign ministry. But China says it alone can not compel Pyongyang to change course.
