Mr Kim said the US had falsely styled itself as the "only superpower in the world" and suggested that efforts to pressure it not to develop weapons would only encourage it further.
Analysts said such a launch would put the US in a dilemma: if it did not try to intercept the missiles, its credibility would be damaged and the North would feel emboldened to carry out a full-range ICBM test.
He also said the U.S. military backed his comments 100 per cent.
At a Lower House Security Committee meeting on Aug. 10, Onodera said an attack against Guam, a U.S. military hub, would weaken the power of the United States, thereby putting Japan's existence in danger. "We'll see what happens". They call it their "snake problem" because the island is known for hosting and invasion of venomous brown snakes that have wreaked havoc on its native animal population; there are now an estimated 2 million snakes on the island.
"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, many years", Trump said.
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".
"My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal".
But bellicose outbursts from the president and some of his senior aides may have made that path even more challenging.
This kind of blurring of the American message has harmful effects on the North Korean crisis besides clearly undercutting Tillerson's credibility.
The spokesman said the strike would aim to "contain the U.S. major military bases on Guam".
The place is bristling with heavy-duty US military equipment.
While North Korea regularly threatens to destroy the United States and its allies, the report was unusual in its detail.
Trump used an appearance before reporters at his Bedminster golf club to ratchet up his rhetoric against the communist nation, which has developed a nuclear weapon small enough to put on a missile and has launched a steady stream of threats against the U.S.
Even a conventional clash could cause catastrophic casualties, given the thousands of North Korean artillery pieces ranged along the border.
Listen to the full segment near the top of this web post. China has described the situation as "highly complicated and sensitive".
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was "troubled by the increase in confrontational rhetoric " on North Korea, a spokesman said. "The Japanese government supports this attitude".
But a sources spoken to by The Sun said the UK will steer clear of getting involved militarily. When North Korea doesn't know where the line is, they're more likely to inadvertently cross it. So, look, I have, nobody has greater respect for intelligence than Donald Trump, but you have to have the right leaders.
