What Is the Difference Between a Hydrogen Bomb and an Atomic Bomb?
North Korea warned this week that it might test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean, after saying the country had already successfully detonated one. A hydrogen bomb has never been used in battle by any country, but experts say it has the power to wipe out entire cities and kill significantly more people than the already powerful atomic bomb, which the U.S. dropped in Japan during World War II, killing tens of thousands of people. As global tensions continue to rise over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, here’s what to know about atomic and hydrogen bombs: Why is a hydrogen bomb stronger than an atomic b...

Sec. Albright, Sen. Coons: Donald Trump Must Realize Diplomacy Protects America
Now that Congress has reconvened to continue work on urgent foreign policy challenges — from the North Korean nuclear threat to our continued role in Afghanistan to the challenge of a rising China — we hope Republicans and Democrats will support funding for diplomacy and development as vital tools of national security. More than 70 years ago, in the wake of the horrors of World War II, President Harry Truman addressed a United Nations Conference in San Francisco. He challenged Americans and our international partners “to rise above personal interests, and adhere to those lofty principles, which benefit al...

‘Mentally Deranged.’ Read Kim Jong Un’s Entire Response to Donald Trump
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has responded to President Donald Trump’s speech on Tuesday at the United Nations General Assembly. During his speech, the U.S. President described Kim as a “Rocket Man” on a “suicide mission,” and said that if “forced to defend itself or its allies, [the U.S.] will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” Two days later, Trump issued an executive order expanding the Treasury Department’s ability to target anyone conducting significant trade in goods, services or technology with North Korea and to ban them from the U.S. financial sys...

President Trump Says Kim Jong Un ‘Is Obviously a Madman’
The war of words between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continues. On Friday morning, less than a day after Kim called Trump “deranged” and a “dotard,” Trump took to Twitter to declare that the North Korean strongman is “obviously a madman.” “Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” Trump said.

Trump Said China Told Banks to Stop Dealing With North Korea. China Says That ’s Not True
(BEIJING) — President Donald Trump’s announcement that Beijing told its banks to stop dealing with North Korea is “not consistent with the facts,” a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said Friday, but he gave no indication what steps China might be taking. The spokesman, Lu Kang, said Beijing complies with U.N. Security Council resolutions. The council has told member countries to ban most activity abroad by North Korea’s banks in response to its nuclear and missile tests. Asked at a regular briefing about Trump’s comment, Lu said, “As far as I know, what you have mentioned just n...

A Brief History of North Korea ’s Insults Toward World Leaders
The war of words continues to escalate between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who on Thursday referred to the head of state as a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” This most recent barb followed Trump’s remarks at his debut address to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, where he warned that the U.S. would “totally destroy North Korea” if forced to defend itself or its allies. It is rare to hear such language from an American leader, but not so from Pyongyang. State-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) has been the vessel for many an insult over the years, directe...

3 Ways the United Nations Is Helping the World (and 2 Ways It Can ’t)
Former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold once remarked that the UN “was created not to lead mankind to heaven but to save humanity from hell.” Put another (less poetic) way, the UN is better at helping the world cope with crises than at preventing or ending them. This week’s UN General Assembly has confirmed as much; here, five global challenges the UN can, and can’t solve: 1. North Korea Let’s begin with something the UN can do very little to resolve: the North Korea standoff. There are three reasons for that. First, the “carrot” the UN wields—the lifting of economic sa...

(NEW YORK) — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday the United States will add more sanctions against North Korea, while U.S. allies have called for enforcing existing international sanctions as the best way to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program. The sanctions are not expected to further target oil, a senior Trump administration official told Reuters. Tensions have risen over North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests, despite intense pressure from world powers. The U.N.

I get deeply insulted when people say, “lead, follow or get out of the way.” My entire career has consisted of getting in the way.

A Way Forward in the North Korea Crisis
There is nothing the US can do to North Korea that will lead to its renunciation of its nuclear weapons program. That is because North Korea already holds US allies hostage to violence we cannot control—and may already or will soon pose a similar threat to the US homeland—and thus presents an unacceptable risk of retaliation for any American offensive military action. There is nothing the US can do for North Korea that might induce it to denuclearize, because keeping North Korea on a war footing vis-à-vis the US keeps the regime of Kim Jong Un in power. There is nothing the international community, inclu...

President Trump teased Wednesday that he has reached a conclusion on whether to re-certify the Iran nuclear accord, which he has been blasting since his time as a candidate. Trump faces an October deadline to affirm Iran’s compliance with the letter of the agreement, and he told reporters that he has made a decision about what to do. The stakes are high not just for the immediate region, but for the world. The nuclear agreement, which Trump and GOP critics have called a bad deal, allowed Iran to continue its destabilizing activities in the region, but the Obama-reached accord is also viewed as a model for a potential...

During his first presidential speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, President Trump cited the “strength and patience” of his nation before telling the audience that “if [the U.S.] is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” This is not, as it happens, the first time a nuclear power has openly threatened another state with destruction — but the previous episode does not bode well for President Trump, or for the world.

U.S. Flies Powerful Warplanes Over Korea in Show of Force
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The U.S. military flew advanced bombers and stealth jets over the Korean Peninsula and near Japan in drills with South Korean and Japanese warplanes on Monday, three days after North Korea fired a missile over Japan. The United States often sends powerful military aircraft in a show of force in times of heightened animosities with North Korea. The North launched its latest missile as it protested against tough new U.N. sanctions over its sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3. Monday’s flyovers over the Korean Peninsula involved two B-1Bs and four F-35Bs from the U.S. military and four F-15K fi...

President Trump Arrives for His U.N. Debut, With Baggage
(NEW YORK) — President Donald Trump is making his debut at the United Nations and taking his complaints about the world body straight to the source. In his first appearance as president, Trump on Monday was addressing a U.S.-sponsored event on reforming the 193-member organization he has sharply criticized. As a candidate for president, Trump labeled the U.N. as weak and incompetent, and not a friend of either the United States or Israel. But he has softened his tone since taking office, telling ambassadors from U.N. Security Council member countries at a White House meeting this year that the U.N. has “tremend...

Here's what war with North Korea would actually look like: 20,000 dead in the first 24 hours
(Natural News) To borrow a phrase that was used hundreds – if not thousands – of times by leftists in the months following the election of Barack Obama, President Trump was “dealt a bad hand.” This is not an excuse for inaction or strategic mistakes, however, sort of like how the liberals used it to...

The launch is seen as direct retaliation for new U.N. sanctions spearheaded by Tokyo and Washington following Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3.
