North Korea And U.S. Sling Nuclear Threats At Each Other

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea (DPRK) continue to escalate. 

North Korea said Tuesday it would consider launching ballistic missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory. South Korean media also reported a separate statement from the DPRK that it would respond with an all-out war should the U.S. take “preventative” measures to halt its nuclear weapons program. The threats came after President Donald Trump said the U.S. would respond “with fire and fury like the world has never seen” if North Korea continued to issue similar threats.
