First, in Lester Holts opening statements tonight, he was SWIFT to blame the rise in tensions on Mr Trump, NOT on the insane dictator in North Korea. Mr. Trump, through his tream, is handling the viable threat diplomatically and with precision.
If China doesn’t do something about North Korea, the US will? We need to be paying attention to the escalations. NKorea actually is a threat these days. He’s getting help ….
Lester then throughout his broadcast from an underground USAF base, suggested that war could begin as early as tonight! WHAT!

North Korean Defector Tells Lester Holt ‘World Should Be Ready’
SEOUL, South Korea — A senior North Korean defector has told NBC News that the country’s “desperate” dictator is prepared to use nuclear weapons to strike the United States and its allies.
Thae Yong Ho is the most high profile North Korean defector in two decades, meaning he is able to give a rare insight into the secretive, authoritarian regime.
According to Thae, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is “desperate in maintaining his rule by relying on his [development of] nuclear weapons and ICBM.” He was using an acronym for intercontinental ballistic missiles — a long range rocket that in theory would be capable of hitting the U.S.
“Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM,” he added in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
Thae was living in London and serving as North Korea’s deputy ambassador to the United Kingdom when he and his family defected to South Korea and were announced to the world in August.
He was not directly involved in North Korea’s weapons program but believes his country “has reached a very significant level of nuclear development.”
North Korea is estimated to have upward of eight nuclear weapons but has not demonstrated the ability to attach them to a long-range rocket, an ICBM, capable of hitting the U.S.
“Kim Jong Un is a man who can do anything beyond the normal imagination”
Analysts are unsure exactly how close the regime is to achieving this aim, but a senior official told NBC News in January that his government was ready to test-fire an ICMB “at any time, at any place.”
Adm. Scott Swift, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, told NBC News that American officials were particularly troubled by this latest threat.
“They have the nuclear capability — they’ve demonstrated that,” he said. “And then, where they’re going with the miniaturization of that, whether they can actually weaponize a missile, that’s what’s driving the current concern.” READ MORE
North Korea: War with US would come with ‘intensity of violence’ we haven’t seen in decades
BARACK Obama’s former defence secretary has warned war with North Korea is possible, but it would come with “an intensity of violence” we haven’t seen in decades.
Speaking to ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on This Week, Ash Carter said he believed a pre-emptive strike on Pyongyang could see Kim Jong-un attempt to invade South Korea.
While Mr Carter said he was confident the US would emerge victorious, the resulting war would be violent and intense.
“It’s quite possible that they would as a consequence of that launch … attempt an invasion of South Korea,” he told Raddatz.
“As I said I’m confident of the outcome of that war, which would be the defeat of North Korea.
“But, Martha, I need to caution you, this is a war that would have … an intensity of violence associated with it that we haven’t seen since the last Korean War.”
Mr Carter, a physicist and former Harvard University professor of Science and International Affairs, also called for caution in any approach taken with North Korea.
“Seoul is right there on the borders of the DMZ, so even though the outcome is certain, it is a very destructive war,” he said. “And so one needs to proceed very carefully here.” SOURCE

Trump: U.S. will resolve North Korea conflict, with or without China
WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — As he prepares to discuss North Korea’s nuclear program with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week, President Donald Trump is floating a possible change in the U.S. posture toward the conflict and China’s role in resolving it.
“Well, if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” he said. “That is all I am telling you.”
Xi is traveling to Florida to meet with Trump at Mar-a-Lago Thursday. A statement issued by the Chinese ministry of foreign affairs said the summit will focus on matters of “great significance” and will be “extremely important” to the future of U.S.-China relations.
Trump has been very critical of China’s trade policies, but the increasingly aggressive behavior of North Korea has likely placed it near the top of the agenda for Trump and Xi’s meetings.
Trump’s comments to the Financial Times came about two weeks after North Korea conducted tests on what is believed to be an engine that could be used in intercontinental ballistic missiles. Once perfected, that technology may enable Pyongyang to threaten the western United States.
North Korea claimed to have tested a nuclear warhead last year. It has not yet demonstrated a capacity to miniaturize a warhead to be carried by an ICBM.
The U.S. and South Korea are currently conducting their annual Foal Eagle joint military drills, which Chinese officials have complained increase tensions in the region.
Whether the U.S. can resolve this crisis unilaterally depends very much on what Trump’s goals are.
“I’ve seen a lot of discussion in the media over the means that will be applied to the problem but not the ends,” said Joshua Pollack, a senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey and editor of The Nonproliferation Review. READ MORE
