More on North Korea H-bomb test (in the Pacific) threat

24 September 2017

Kim Jong Un has now fired back, referring to President Trump as a "dotard".

He also called Trump "deranged" and "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire".

But Chung Sung-Yoon, analyst at the Korea Institute for National Unification, told AFP that the North itself may have shelved the idea of negotiations until it reaches its nuclear goal.

North Korea's leader Kim Jung-un makes a statement regarding US President Donald Trump's speech at the United Nations general assembly in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency in Pyongyang September 22, 2017.

Hawaii became the first USA state to begin preparations for nuclear war, after North Korea threatened to launch four missiles near Guam last month.

In a rare personal attack published hours after Washington announced the tougher sanctions, Kim said Trump was "mentally deranged" and will "pay dearly" for his threat to destroy his country.

DPRK is the abbreviation of the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Kim's foreign minister told reporters this past week that the North's response to Trump "could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific".

The insult was a riposte from Kim Jong Un after US President Donald Trump nicknamed the North Korean leader "Rocket Man" at the UN General Assembly.

Such a test would be considered a major provocation by the U.S., South Korea and Japan.

"#DotardTrump Now the lefty liberals are siding with a N Korean Dictator who is launching missiles weekly at his neighbors?"

"We can not deny the possibility it may fly over our country", he said.

And if something goes wrong the consequences would be "truly terrifying" said Vipin Narang, a nuclear strategy expert at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He didn't elaborate any further on what this could be, but the next step from the nuclear arms and missiles he's been testing thus far is a #Hydrogen Bomb.

She went on: "A gun was sacked, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying and the guns were fired one after the other".

Kim said Trump's remarks had only convinced him - rather than frightening or making him stop - that "the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last".

Hee claimed Kim forces those in the walled-off country's "upper-class elite" to watch executions, and said she was witness to a mass execution of 11 musicians who were put to death by an anti-aircraft gun shortly after Kim took over for his late father Kim Jong Il in 2011. "S. dotard with fire".

Trump sent another message on Friday on Twitter.

Earlier this month, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned China, North Korea's main ally and trading partner, that if it did not follow through on new United Nations sanctions on Pyongyang, Washington would "put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the US and worldwide dollar system".
