US to Strike North Korea????
I wasn’t planning to post today, but then I saw the following:
If this doesn’t kick-start a correction, nothing will.
US STRIKE ON NORTH KOREA IF THEY DO A NUCLEAR TEST (CNBC)
“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.” Story at…
My cmt: Insanity! What would N. Korea do afterward? They would attack South Korea in a “surprise” ground assault similar to the one that started the Korean War in 1950. The US would have to augment ground forces - Deja-vu, all over again. We were at war 3-years in the 50’s and settled for a stalemate. Conventional warfare is expensive – in logistics, equipment and, most importantly, lives. Looks like Trump is planning for regime change and nation-building in North Korea. It’s worked so well in Iraq and Syria, why not?
