Airstrikes on Syria might also send message to North Korea

Donald Trump Kim Jong-un strike first

"The U.S. missile attack against Syria is a clear and unforgivable act of aggression against a sovereign state, and we strongly condemn this", an unnamed spokesman was quoted by the agency.

Gordon Chang, author of Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On The World, said the airstrike told insane Kim he "must now heed American military power".

Trump ordered the strike in Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack on Syrians.

An expert who has authored a book on North Korea said Saturday not to be surprised if North Korean leader Kim John Un went into hiding following the USA missile strike against Syria, stating in an email to Fox News that American military power was more than likely something he had "dismissed before".

"We will bolster up in every way our capability for self-defense to cope with the USA evermore reckless moves for a war and defend ourselves with our own force", KCNA added.

"If they infringe on the DPRK's sovereignty and dignity even a bit, its army will launch merciless ultra-precision strikes from ground, air, sea and underwater", North Korea said through its state-run news source.

"We assess that they were relatively successful talks that laid the groundwork for cooperation between the two leaders and the development of the U.S".

Louis CK says he regrets comparing Trump to Hitler
According to Louis C.K., he does regret sending out that letter past year , but he has no plans of taking his statements back. He also said he doubted whether the president's name was even actually "Donald Trump". "I regret saying it".

However, China has for a long time insisted that the crux of the North Korean nuclear issue is a problem between Washington and Pyongyang.

Sunday's Abe-Trump conversation also comes as a U.S. Navy carrier group headed to the Korean Peninsula amid signs that Pyongyang is preparing for a sixth nuclear test. The exercises this year are the biggest ever and have included stealth fighter training and other maneuvers that are particularly sensitive to North Korea.

North Korea last week conducted a ballistic missile test in spite of U.N. Security Council resolutions banning such launches.

The missile, believed to be a type known as Pukguksong-2 or a modified version of it, was sacked nearly vertically and reached an altitude of 189 km, a South Korean military official said, adding that it has yet to be analyzed whether the launch was a success or not.

Trump Administration officials have repeatedly insisted they believe China could quickly and unilaterally solve North Korea with little effort, though the USA has also ruled out any Chinese solution that involves any sort of diplomacy. The president is adamant about a military option to get North Korea to denuclearize and not weaponize intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Along with its rapidly advancing nuclear and long-range missile capabilities, the North has its artillery and short-range missiles trained on Seoul, the capital of USA ally South Korea and a city of more than 10 million people.
