U.S. Pacific Command Tweets Out Military Readiness
President Donald Trump said on Friday the U.S. military is “locked and loaded” in case North Korea decides to act “unwisely” on their threats.
“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely,” President Trump tweeted. “Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!”

His remarks come after Pyongyang accused him of driving the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.
“Trump is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war, making such outcries as ‘the U.S. will not rule out a war against the DPRK,'” KCNA said.
The state-run news agency for the leftwing regime said earlier in the week that Kim Jong Un was “carefully examining” a plan to launch an attack against Guam, the furthest U.S. territory in the Pacific.
U.S. Pacific Command responded on Twitter saying they are fully prepared in the event President Trump gives an order.

on August 7, two U.S. Air Force B-1B bombers, under the command of U.S. Pacific Air Forces, conducted bilateral missions with their counterparts from the Republic of Korea and Japanese air forces.
“How we train is how we fight and the more we interface with our allies, the better prepared we are to fight tonight,” said a 37th EBS B-1 pilot. “The B-1 is a long-range bomber that is well-suited for the maritime domain and can meet the unique challenges of the Pacific.”
