Trump mocks North Korea's 'Rocket Man'

Last Monday, the U.N. Security Council adopted a new round of sanctions on North Korea after the nation's sixth and largest nuclear weapons test.

North Korea fired an intermediate-range missile over Japan, a U.S. ally, early Thursday morning, which the UN Security Council said was "highly provocative" and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemned as threatening to world peace.

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point", Haley told CNN on Sunday morning.

US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in "gravely condemned" North Korea's latest missile test on Thursday and promised "stronger" sanctions on Pyongyang during a phone conversation on Sunday, a South Korean government spokesman said after the call.

McMaster said Trump's scheduled speech Tuesday at the U.S. General Assembly in NY will "communicate his vision for America's role in the world" in three areas: protecting American people, promoting American prosperity and promoting accountability and sovereignty.

Kim has threatened Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, and has fired two missiles over Japan, a USA ally in Asia, including one missile launched on Friday.

"We are prepared, we're prepared militarily, we're prepared with our allies to respond militarily", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters, speaking at the close of US-Japan security meetings with Mattis.

While there has been a great deal of media attention surrounding the Lancer's technical ability to carry nuclear weapons, the USA military's fastest bombers are inspected annually by Russian experts to ensure all B-1Bs are compliant with the Cold-War era Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, which bars them from carry nukes.

"If we do use it on North Korea, it will be a very sad day for North Korea". Though they aren't their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they are available to the President.

Haley's warning comes in stark contrast made by former U.S. state department officials who say there's still room to engage North Korea diplomatically. "All they need to do to let us know they're ready to talk is to just stop these tests, stop these provocative actions, and let's lower the threat level and the rhetoric".

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behaviour, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed".

What to do about the North Korean crisis?

China has urged the United States to refrain from making threats to North Korea.

Today, the chemical is made primarily by China, a few European nations and Russian Federation, which calls it the devil's venom.
