North Korea showing 'unprecedented levels' of submarine activity

A Republican senator said US President Donald Trump has told him he would go to war to destroy North Korea rather than allow it to develop a long-range nuclear-armed missile

South Korea and the USA on Monday started negotiating a full deployment of the controversial anti-missile system THAAD, in response to the recent intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch by North Korea.

The US military has detected "highly unusual and unprecedented levels" of North Korean submarine activity and evidence of an "ejection test", a defence official told CNN.

"The time for talk is over", U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Sunday in dismissing a question about whether America should go back to the United Nations and ramp up sanctions on the North Korean government after they tested a long-range missile last week that could potentially hit American cities beyond the West Coast.

These types of submarine tests are usually done to examine a missile's ability to "cold launch" out of an ejection shoot by high-pressured steam.

"We will handle North Korea".

The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) was able to intercept a ballistic missile launched over the Pacific Ocean by a U.S. Air Force C-17 plane in the "successful" test - meant to simulate a real missile fired by Pyongyang.

"But the North Koreans are being far better spokespeople on that than we're capable of. We handle everything", Trump said after a reporter asked him about his strategy.

Vettel holds on in Ferrari 1-2 in Hungary
The Dutchman's bad luck finally turned at Silverstone, where he finished in fourth position - one place ahead of Ricciardo. In the beginning of the race, Bottas has created the space to allow Hamilton to attack the cars Ferrari .

CNN said that land-based and submarine-based missiles are considered two-thirds of what is known as the "Strategic Triad", a theory that a state must have land, air and sea-based nuclear attack capabilities to successfully deter an enemy from trying to attack it.

That activity caused US and South Korean forces to slightly raise their alert level, according to one official.

The North's SLBM capability, if fully developed, would pose a serious threat because of its mobile nature, along with the country's rapidly progressing development of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the USA with nuclear weapons.

The US military pays close attention to North Korean submarine activity following the 2010 Cheonan incident where a North Korean sub torpedoed a South Korean Naval vessel.

Citing Korean Central News Agency, the Associated Press reported North Korea leader Kim Jong Un supervised the latest test and expressed "great satisfaction" as a result of the successful launch.

Though such exercises are planned months in advance, this one comes after North Korea test-fired the intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday.
