Despite Trump and Pence's warnings, it seems North Korea will not back down...
"North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region."
Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-Ryol told the BBC's John Sudworth in Pyongyang...
"We'll be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis,"
He added that:
an "all out war" would result if the US was "reckless enough to use military means".
Certainly seems like rhetoric is worsening, not improving, and if Trump is to be held to his pre-emptive word then this threat of guaranteed provocation, guarantees a pre-emptive strike.
