Is war with North Korea coming?

"U.S. May Launch Strike if North Korea Reaches for Nuclear Trigger"
The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

North Korea has warned that a "big event" is near, and U.S. officials say signs point to a nuclear test that could come as early as this weekend.

We don't need to go to war with NK - we need to surgically remove L'l Kim.

No such thing as surgically.

Items cited from MSLSD and The Hill. If it isn't on StrategyPage, don't put much stock in it.

BTW Who do you think that MOAB was intended to impress?

So much for America First. The generals are in charge.

leadership in Iran.

And now Trump finds that like Reagan due to his position and due to actions he can no longer joke about sending over a MOAB to shut you the f up. Because it's not funny.

I was there the first time.

It was funny as Hell. Only the Communists were offended.

This is what happens when you live in Baaston. Your brain freezes facing Left.

Hey lets threaten the Russians over the Ukraine too.

Maybe we can intervene in Venezuela. I just so a video about a bunch of starving children.

There must be for or five other places that we can bomb or invade or threaten or something.

What are we waiting for?

Trooper York said...

It is not just the generals Titus. It is the Deep State. It is the foreign policy establishment who only get their rice bowl filled if their is international conflicts and wars. Not if we stay at home and mind our own business.

It is a lot sexier and you get a lot of accolades if you worry about Syria and North Korea than if you went back to Arizona to the border to stop the invasion of destitute peons who are coming to rape, rob and sell drugs. People who worry about that are whackos doncha know?

It's looking like the Red Chinese are going to settle the Norks, largely because The Donald got them to do it.

A little push never hurts.

PS I seem to recall Sessions made a big speech on the border. I also seem to recall the flow of illegals has been cut by 2/3 in the last quarter.

Things seem to be bouncing along quite nicely.

You do realize that there is a treaty in place that puts the US and the UK at an obligation to help defend the Ukraine and when Urkle wouldn't even send weapons to them, what did that say about the treaty and us?
