The latest round of United Nations sanctions against North Korea explained

Amb. Nikki Haley appearing on Fox and Friends slammed a Fox News report based on anonymous sources

Now they see the global community standing with one voice. To the monomaniacal Associated Press, Trump's tweet is the story: "Trump retweets Fox report based on anonymous sources".

North Korea has since promised to make the U.S.

Despite the United States' insistence that North Korea halt its missile tests, USA spy agencies detected the rogue communist regime loading two anti-ship cruise missiles on a patrol boat on the country's east coast just days ago.

The last thing China wants is US supersonic bombers roaring close to its borders. The big question: Can North Korea be deterred, just as the Soviet Union and China were? "He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with the fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which the world has never seen before". The sanctions followed groundbreaking long-range missile tests last month that showed the North could potentially reach the continental United States with its missiles. At the moment, however, both countries rely on US nuclear deterrence for their security.

This time could be worse: Tuesday afternoon, the Washington Post reported that North Korea has "successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles" - a crucial step in turning the country into a "full-fledged nuclear power". Japan, a key US ally, is a potential, front-line target of North Korean aggression.

Officials at the agency wouldn't comment Tuesday.

Tomlinson's story credits the information about North Korean missiles to "U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest intelligence in the region".

Recent sanctions have all but eliminated the prospect of any diplomacy between North Korea and the United States.

The calculation of North Korea's nuclear arsenal at 60 bombs exceeds other assessments, which range from around one dozen to about 30 weapons. Trump and his administration have denounced leaks of America's secrets, not North Korea's. They also take aim at North Korea's banks and "joint ventures with foreign companies", according to CNN.

The threat from North Korea is real, and is growing more imminent. Another work-in-progress: the ability to strike targets with accuracy.
