The Director of the CIA ruled out the imminent beginning of a nuclear war
MOSCOW, 13 Aug — RIA Novosti. The Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo on the background of aggravation of the situation around the DPRK said that the available intelligence data exclude the probability of nuclear war.
“I have not seen any intelligence that would indicate that we are on the brink of nuclear war,” he said in an interview with Fox News channel.
Pompeo stressed that the Bush administration still sees the DPRK as a threat and noted that “the United States will no longer suffer as before.”
This week, Pyongyang and Washington have exchanged loud statements. First, trump has threatened North Korea with “fire and fury”, if it will pose a real danger to the United States. Pyongyang responded by saying that studying the possibility of a missile strike on the island of GUAM where the us has bases — aviation Andersen and naval APRA Harbor.
Trump, in turn, threatened that if Kim Jong-UN “do something with GUAM, North Korea will happen such an event, which no one has ever seen”. Then the American leader added that the US is fully ready military solution in case the DPRK would be unwise to behave.
