Haley: 'Plenty' of military options available for dealing with North Korea

Donald and Melania Trump depart the White House

President Donald Trump has said America and its allies will never be intimidated and insisted that the US' options for addressing the threat posed by North Korea are both "effective and overwhelming".

The U.N. Security Council is set to hold an emergency meeting later Friday to discuss their response to the latest launch, which came only three days after the council unanimously approved new sanctions on Pyongyang for its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3. "Now, it's not what we would prefer to do". Some 25 million people live in the metropolitan area of Seoul, U.S. ally South Korea's capital, well within range of the North's extensive artillery.

"Earlier, National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster also told a White House new briefing that there is a military option to deal with the regime but it's not what the USA would prefer to do".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said that combined with previous sanctions the United Nations has now banned 90 percent of North Korea's exports reported in 2016.

What the Technicals Say About Oracle Corporation (ORCL)
Whether that will be enough for investors, who have pushed Oracle's stock to record highs in recent weeks, is the big question. As of the end of the quarter Perigon Wealth Management, LLC had disposed of a total of 675 shares trimming its position 3.2%.

McMaster sent a mixed message on Friday, insisting that the USA retained a "military option" in dealing with North Korea even while calling on "everyone to do everything we can to address the global problem short of war".

The latest missile test raises therefore important questions about the credibility of U.S. extended deterrence and the protective strategic umbrella that America provides to Japan and South Korea. That launch came less than two weeks after Pyongyang staged its most powerful nuclear test yet.

Key US allies, including France, have strongly encouraged Trump to uphold the agreement in order to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear arsenal. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community".

Trump has threatened "fire and fury" in response to North Korea's threats. Both of North Korea's patron nations insist that Pyongyang has legitimate grievances that should be settled through negotiations with the US and South Korea.

The LA Lakers Are Planning To Retired Kobe Bryant's No. 8 & No
Bryant also earned First Team All- NBA honors 11 times and was a member of the All-Defensive First Team nine times. He retired in 2016 with a bravura 60-point performance in his farewell game against Utah.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday local time, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community.

Experts have long questioned if the USA could indeed attack North Korea, given its ability to cause massive casualties south of the border.

The North Korean state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun on Friday said in an editorial, "If the USA continues to walk on the current course, we will take stronger actions for our self-defense".

McMaster says Trump, much like previous presidents, will push a message of reform, calling for more transparency and accountability at the United Nations. She expected a Trump call for maximum pressure on North Korea.
