As tensions continue to ratchet up over North Korea's pursuit of a nuclear missile capable of striking the US, CNN has spoken to multiple officials with a detailed knowledge of how the US will determine if any North Korean missile launch poses a threat that requires the US military to shoot it down.
"I don't think there's anything to worry about".
North Korean missiles can reach the continental United States.
The Strategic Command determines if the missile poses a threat to US satellites in space. On Thursday, pictures of a mass rally in Pyongyang the previous were shown on state media. It had been known the two sides had discussions to secure the June release of an American university student. But despite the alleged madness of North Korea's leaders, it's worked.
It periodically blasts pop songs towards the North through gigantic loudspeakers placed along the border, as part of its propaganda efforts. On Friday, Trump tweeted that "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".
"Americans are adding fuel to the fire. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" Japan seized it for about 2½ years during World War II.
Also in 2016, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test, which it claimed was of a "standardized" warhead that could fit on a rocket. The plan would be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for approval just before or as the U.S. -South Korea drills begin.
Trump has threatened to impose punitive trade restrictions on China for its alleged trade abuses, and has delayed actions to impose broad restrictions on steel imports.

Premier pays d'Asie concerné, Hong Kong "a indiqué avoir trouvé des oeufs" néerlandais contaminés, a précisé l'exécutif européen. Le ministre s'est néanmoins voulu rassurant: ces œufs seraient sans impact sur la santé des consommateurs.
The Co Londonderry man (above), who was honoured for his contribution to island life on Guam between 1999 and 2004, said he is hoping that the situation can be resolved peacefully. "It's the weekend. Go out, have a good time".
"Military tension or an armed conflict on the Korean peninsula will not benefit any country", said the South Korean president's office following a meeting of the national security council.
There is absolutely no need to panic whenever North Korea, or the US this time, talks about a war.
Of course, those weapons were still vastly more powerful than any conventional bomb. About 24 percent are Filipino, 18 percent identify as several races, 7 percent are white, and 10 percent are of other Micronesian descent. It also has a spotty record, although its most recent test, in May, was a success.
"I feel for the people of Guam that the island has been dragged into the spotlight for this reason". And it's unclear whether its compact nuclear warheads are able to withstand the forces and vibrations associated with traveling atop a missile. "I'm not trying to overlook it or understate it. We understand the threats, but we also don't want to panic anybody, and we don't want to jump to conclusions based on rhetoric".
South Korea, which fought a war with the North that ended in a stalemate in 1953, is highly technologically advanced and analysts estimate it could develop an atomic device within months of deciding to do so.
The U.S. military began rotating bombers - the B-2 stealth bomber as well as the B-1 and B-52 - to Andersen in 2004.
"My wife and I found it to be an amazing island full of different nationalities and cultures - Koreans, Japanese, Australians, Filipinos and island people".
