Ground Invasion Only Way to Secure N.Korean Nukes, Says Pentagon

Trump extending Asia trip to include key summit

The amount of casualties would differ depending on the advance warning and the ability of US and South Korea forces to counter these attacks, he said. The president joined Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Japan on Sunday and Monday, enjoying a casual burger lunch and golf - and discussing the nuclear crisis.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attends a meeting with a committee of the Workers' Party of Korea about the test of a hydrogen bomb, at an unknown location, September 4, 2017.

"You'll hear more about that soon, I think", the adviser, H.R. McMaster, said at a briefing on the eve of Trump's five-nation tour of Asia, which starts Friday.

'No dictator, no regime, no nation should ever underestimate American resolve, ' Trump told hundreds of cheering U.S. and Japanese troops in camouflage uniforms gathered at Yokota Air Base, just west of Tokyo, soon after he arrived.

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities... every once in a while, in the past, they underestimated us". It was not pleasant for them, was it?' said Trump, who wore a leather bomber jacket as he addressed the troops.

Recent drills over South Korea by two USA strategic bombers have further raised tensions.

Trump was due to arrive early Tuesday in Seoul - where the subject of how to tackle North Korea's totalitarian dictator is expected to be at the top of the agenda.


A USA ground invasion of North Korea could cost "millions" of lives, a new military report has predicted amid growing tensions between the USA and the hermit nation. It's a big problem for our country and the world, and we want to get it solved, ' he said.

"There's a danger if there is a lot of muscle-flexing", said Mike Chinoy, senior fellow at the University of Southern California's U.S.

President Trump says he expects to meet face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week on the sidelines of an economic summit in Vietnam.

North and South Korea are technically still in a state of conflict since the Korean War ended in an armistice, rather than a peace treaty, in 1953.

'There is only one way that this war ends.

And a high-profile defector last week said that North Korean military officers have been trained to trigger a devastating counterstrike if their country were attacked by the United States. Trump has criticized the deal as a source of the US trade deficit with South Korea, an argument officials there dismiss.
