Committed to nuke dev in 2018: North Korea

  • North Korean missiles will 'certainly' fly over Canada, a Japanese expert says

However, North Korea's state media denounced the exercise as a "surprise nuclear strike drill" and said "gangster-like US imperialists" were seeking to ignite a nuclear war.

The country's official Korean Central News Agency took the oft-repeated stance on Saturday as it reviewed the country's major nuclear weapons and missile tests this year.

Mullen said that the future rests in large part on the actions of China, which has traditionally been North Korea's closest ally and has been asked by President Donald Trump to increase pressure on the rogue regime.

Matthew Stafford throws 3 TD passes; Lions beat Packers in finale
CB Davon House had a shoulder injury and Williams was evaluated for a concussion late in the game. Stafford finished with 27.12 FanDuel points, ending up as the second-best fantasy QB of the week.

Retired Adm. Mike Mullen on Sunday warned the U.S.is closer to a nuclear war with North Korea than ever before.

The United States faces a greater threat of nuclear conflict on the Korean peninsula than at any previous time, said a former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Islamic State claims responsibility for deadly attacks in Kabul
Taliban forces fighting US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces in Afghanistan have denied any involvement in the attack. Bass said the incident "once again demonstrates the depravity of those who seek to undermine peace and stability in Afghanistan".

But in a typically aggressive tone, KCNA said Trump should "not expect any change in its policy" heading into 2018.

In August, Trump threatened to unleash "fire and fury like the world has never seen", but North Korea has reiterated its commitment to furthering its nuclear and missile development program.

David Wright, a missiles expert at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said: "The question that has always been raised is: Did North Korea get this technology from a [Russian] fire sale?"

Democrat Jones officially declared victor over Roy Moore
Previously, Merrill has said it is "highly unlikely" that Jones would not be certified as the victor of the election. Moore's campaign was deeply wounded by accusations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago.
