North Korea has said it will defend itself "by powerful force of arms" in response to the US deployment of a Navy strike group to the Korean peninsula.
The foreign ministry, quoted by state news agency KCNA, said the deployment showed "reckless moves for invading" had "reached a serious phase".
The US Pacific Command says it is aimed at maintaining readiness in the region.
President Trump has said the US is prepared to act alone to deal with the nuclear threat from North Korea.

Will North Korea back down or will it trigger a war?

North Korea is vowing tough counteraction to any military moves that might follow the U.S. move to send the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and its battle group to waters off the Korean Peninsula.


The statement from Pyongyang comes as tensions on the divided peninsula are high because of U.S.-South Korea wargames now underway and recent ballistic missile launches by the North. Pyongyang sees the annual maneuvers as a dress rehearsal for invasion, while the North’s missile launches violate UN resolutions.

“We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions,” a spokesman for its Foreign Ministry was quoted as saying by the state-run Korean Central News Agency late Monday.

Kim Jong Um is crazy enough to take on the US Naval Task force, then what?

Kim is unpredictable. Can't afford to play games with North Korea. Better let China handle them. Even their supporter's words could be ignored at times but at least it is a safer bet.

What can China do when the man is unreasonable?
