Sada El Balad: US will win war against North Korea: Senator Graham

Fresh off of last night's suggestion that his previous threats of "fire and fury unlike any the world has ever seen" didn't go far enough, President Trump unsurprisingly took to Twitter today to issue more threats to North Korea, giving the impression that a war is imminent.

The US is against North Korea's nuclear weapons but Pyongyang says it will not give up on its nuclear deterrence unless Washington ends its hostile policy toward the country and dissolves the US-led United Nations command in South Korea.

"The president alone has the authority to launch nuclear weapons, the only restraint being the advice of senior advisors who might be present at the time of crisis, and Donald Trump has shown repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel".

A former Republican senator from New Hampshire called on Democrats to support a bill that would evaluate President Trump's psychological ability to hold office.

"I think that's the right call because we can't live as a nation under the threat of nuclear attack from a insane man in North Korea،" Graham added.

In response of Trump's dire warning، North Korea said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike the American Pacific territory of Guam with missiles.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S.in case of a military conflict with North Korea. He said he would convey his concern about Trump's comments to the president should they continue.

"President Trump's threat to rain down "fire and fury" on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire", Humphrey wrote.

Meanwhile, American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war.

Russia's foreign minister says the risk of a military conflict between the USA and North Korea is "very high".

Cicilline said Trump "has made a unsafe situation even worse by recklessly asserting that the United States is "locked and loaded" to bring "fire and fury" to North Korea". She says Germany would work to find diplomatic solutions with the countries involved, the US and China in particular, but also South Korea. They urged him to "minimize preconditions in order to bring the North Koreans to the table and commence dialogue at the earliest possible date".

Trump tweeted: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

"I am anxious those comments are not helpful when the situation is so tense, and I think you are seeing reaction from North Korea that indicates that kind of comment is more likely to escalate than to settle things", English said.

On Tuesday، Trump said the U.S. would rain "fire and fury" on North Korea، which some said could "only be interpreted" as a nuclear threat.
