Some Korean-Americans Not Too Worried About Rhetoric Between Trump, North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has delayed a decision on firing missiles toward Guam while he waits to see what the United States does, the North's state media reported on Tuesday as the United States said any dialogue was up to Kim.
The strong US military presence on Guam, located 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) southeast of Seoul, South Korea's capital, has left it the target of North Korea's threats for years. Back in 2003, the year North Korea pulled out of the nuclear nonproliferation treaty, a Gallup poll found that 60 percent of people in the US thought the Kim regime's weapons capabilities were a "major problem". Pence specifically encouraged Chile to reclassify its wine exports as luxury goods, which would prevent North Korea from obtaining them under current US sanctions.
The number of South Korean travelers in particular has been growing lately because five low-priced airlines started flying to Guam from South Korea, said Antonio Muna, the vice president of Guam Visitors Bureau.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says tensions on the Korean peninsula are at their highest level in decades and it's important "to dial down the rhetoric and to dial up diplomacy".
Kelsey Davenport, director of non-proliferation for the Arms Control Association told the McClatchy Washington Bureau North Korea "could respond to a U.S. attack using chemical weapons".
He said: "We hope for a peaceful resolution but we needed to seriously have a conversation about what might happen if there was military action". Pyongyang released images of this, showcasing a map outlining a flight path for the missiles from the coastal city of Sinpo in North Korea to Guam. His visit to Asia, which also will include a stop in Japan, comes after Trump last week declared the US military "locked and loaded" and said he was ready to unleash "fire and fury" if North Korea continued to threaten the United States.
He said a growing number of North Koreans have stopped seeing their supreme leader as "a great person born of heaven"-the propaganda term that has been used to describe Kim, his father, and his grandfather".
A North Korean statement said Kim Jong Un would observe what it called "foolish and stupid conduct" of the U.S. before deciding whether to order the missiles fired.
But North Korean media reported on Tuesday that Kim had delayed the decision while he waited to see what the United States did next.
The Liberation Day holiday, celebrated by both North and South, will be followed next week by joint US-South Korean military drills. "History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea", Susan Rice, the former Obama national security advisor, wrote last week.
He also declared, amid fears in South Korea that threats from President Donald Trump to unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang could lead to real fighting, that there would be no second war on the Korean Peninsula. The goal is obviously a worthy one, but a raid against North Korea, even one conceived as limited, would have the potential to spin into something much broader. The problem of North Korea is one that has troubled governments around the world for the best part of half a century. "In particular, the USA will continue to request Chinese and Russian commitments not to provide the regime with economic lifelines and to persuade it to abandon its unsafe path".
Red Sox want Yawkey Way renamed - perhaps for David Ortiz
The Red Sox were the last team to integrate under his ownership, not signing an African-American player until Pumpsie Green 1959. That incredible first pitch, and the photographs it generated, aren't the only reason this was a remarkable game though.
