United States President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that military options are "fully in place" against North Korea in case the nation acts "unwisely."
"Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" Trump tweeted.
On Tuesday, Trump threatened to rein "fire" and "fury" on North Korea should they continue provocations against the US.
"He has been very threatening beyond a normal state," Trump said of Kim on Tuesday. "As I said, they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before."
However, experts opine that North Korean statement announcing intentions to fire missiles at Guam was full of conditional statements and possibly a bluff.
North Korea has launched more than a dozen test missiles this year. Concerns were heightened late last month when tests of an intercontinental ballistic missile indicated Pyongyang may be within a year or two of obtaining the technology to reach the U.S. with nuclear missiles.
