POLL: North Korea v USA…who represents the biggest threat to world peace?

Donald Trump is not happy.
Donald Trump is not happy.

Donald Trump has threatened North Korea with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” after suggestions the reclusive communist state has cleared a final hurdle to being able to strike the United States with a nuclear missile.

And Pyongyang fanned the flames further by saying said it was examining its operational plans for attacking Guam, a US territory about 2,100 miles away and home to Andersen Air Force Base , in order to contain American military activity there.

In a statement distributed by the state-run news agency on Wednesday, t he North Korean army said it was studying a plan to create an “enveloping fire” in areas around Guam with medium to long-range ballistic missiles.

Malcontent: Kim Jong-un.

Although it was not clear if US president Mr Trump and the Koreans were responding directly to each other, the heightened rhetoric added to the potential for a miscalculation that might bring the nuclear-armed nations into conflict.

Against the backdrop of the rising tensions, we are today asking who represents the larger threat to world peace?
