US Vice-President Mike Pence has said his country's "era of strategic patience" with North Korea is over.
Mr Pence first made the remarks at the demilitarised zone (DMZ), the area dividing the two Koreas, during a visit to South Korea to reaffirm ties.
His visit comes amid escalated tensions on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US.
So far, the usual tactic of the North Koreans has been to ramp up the rhetoric every year then, once they'd got some sort of concessions, to ease the tensions. Pence says ' No more.' We've all been here before with the USSR and the Cold War for years but Kim Jong Ún is a lunatic with possibly WMDs at his disposal. China will have to be the main player in cooling things down this time.
I'm not getting the Vera Lynn records out of the loft just yet but I know where they are, just in case.
