“Massive military response” if N. Korea threatens U.S.: Mattis

Secretary of Defense says Washington has numerous options to "annihilate" DPRK

U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis on Sunday said Washington's military response would be "massive" if North Korea threatened the United States, Guam or its allies.

The comments follow a successful North Korean nuclear test which took place in the early hours of Sunday morning (EST). The DPRK claimed it detonated a hydrogen bomb small enough to be mounted on a missile.
