Military Solutions to Korea Escalation 'Fully in Place, Locked & Loaded'

President Trump took to Twitter early Friday issuing yet another stark warning to North Korea that the United States' military was "locked and loaded", and urged the rogue regime's dictator to "find another path".

North Korea has responded by suggesting that it plans to launch four missiles to land in the waters near Guam, an American possession that hosts important military bases.

US President Donald Trump warned North Korea on Thursday evening that he would be "very, very upset" if he would do anything against the United States, according to BBC News.

The president said that the USA military is ready in a tweet and said he hopes North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, "will find another path". Hours later, state media in North Korea reported that its leaders were seriously considering a plan to fire missiles at Guam.

The Steelers have announced that Ben Roethlisberger will sit out of their first preseason game against the Giants on Friday. Landry Jones has proven to be a capable backup, but he definitely isn't the long-term answer in Pittsburgh.

What happens if North Korea launches against Guam? Beijing has expressed frustration with both Pyongyang's repeated nuclear and missile tests and with behavior from South Korea and the US, such as military drills, that it sees as increasing tensions.

"If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so", it said. Trump then told reporters on Thursday that his previous threats may not have been "tough enough".

Trump's comments followed a North Korean claim over state television that it was preparing to fire four missiles towards the U.S. strategic island Guam.

Trump also tweeted this week that the United States' nuclear arsenal is far stronger and more powerful than ever, but added, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power..."
