Trump Just Dropped the Hammer on N Korea — This Could Get Ugly

The startling, yet inevitable, announcement on June 5 that the Nork missile launched the day before was in fact an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of carrying a nuclear warhead sent off shock waves through the world yesterday.

For decades, especially the past 8 years, North Korea has been allowed to develop a nuclear weapon program all the while the UN pontificated and the non-proliferation crowd hymned and hawed over what tool of diplomacy to use.

Now the world is faced with what increasingly looks like an unpleasant final option: military force.

The Right Scoop says that U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, called the Kim’s launch “dangerous”, “reckless” and “irresponsible”. While the other members of the Security Council fell back upon the do-nothing habit of calling for more diplomatic pressure, Haley revealed that President Trump was not ruling out the use of force.

“One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction,” Haley stated.

Kim Jong Un is determined to gain notoriety by combating the U.S. and possibly being the first nation to hit us with nuclear weapons. Haley has just made clear that Trump will not let that happen.
