US weighing military response to North Korea

Gary Willig – JUNE 29, 2017

The US is preparing a possible military option against the threat of North Korea, among other options, US President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said Wednesday.

“The threat is much more immediate now and so it’s clear that we can’t repeat the same approach – the failed approach of the past,” McMaster said during a security conference with Homeland Security Chief John Kelly, Fox News reported.

McMaster added that it would be “insanity” for the US to continue to pursue the same policy on North Korea as it has in the past and expect a better result, alluding to Albert Einstein’s famous similar remark on the definition of insanity.

President Trump is scheduled to meet tomorrow with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who has vowed to stand with Trump against North Korea.

“Together we will achieve the dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear program, peace on the Korean Peninsula and eventually peace in Northeast Asia,” Moon said.
