South Koreas President Moon Jae-in says North Korean nuclear-tipped ICBM is a red line
White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said he was pushing the U.S. administration to take a harder line on China trade and not put complaints against its trade practices in the backseat in hope that Beijing would help restrain leader Kim Jong Un.
North Korea would be crossing a red line if it put a nuclear warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile, South Koreas president said on Thursday, but the United States had promised to seek Seouls approval before taking any military action. North Koreas rapid progress in developing nuclear weapons and missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland has fuelled a surge in tensions in recent days. Pyongyang has threatened to fire missiles towards the Pacific island of Guam and U.S. President Donald Trump has warned it would face fire and fury if it threatened the United States.
I would consider that North Korea is crossing a red line if it launches an intercontinental ballistic missile again and weaponises it by putting a nuclear warhead on top of the missile, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said at a news conference marking his first 100 days in office. Moon has repeatedly urged North Korea not to cross the red line but had not previously elaborated what that would constitute. Trump had promised to seek negotiations and approval from South Korea before taking any options regarding North Korea, Moon also said. The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

How does one know what payload if any is on a launched missile?
I swear to God, if they drop ONE MORE nukular tipped ICBM on ONE MORE American City, we are going to be UBER PO’d!
I think we can do all the defending we need to do for SK from Guam.
Didn’t Moon Jae-in surrender last week ?
No, but it’s always an option.
Bannon sort of did last night.
