Trump Warns North Korea on Its Missile Tests; May Use Missile Strikes on Missile Facilities

U.S. President Donald Trump has used tough rhetoric in response to North Korea's missile tests, the Reuters website reports today (July 6, 2017).

U,S, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Pyongyang's test launch of an intercontinental missile on July 4 a global threat, as Alaska may now be within range.

Most options for countering North Korea fall into four categories: economic sanctions, covert action, diplomatic negotiations, and military force.

Trumps military options range from a sea blockade of North Korea to cruise missile strikes on nuclear and missile facilities to a broader campaign to overthrow North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
