    Default McMaster says US must be prepared for military operations in North Korea

    National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster attempted to make clear Sunday that President Trump is seeking international support in trying to stop North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclearize weapon, reasserting Trump’s vow that the U.S. will no longer be the world’s policeman.

    “It’s an open defiance of the international community,” McMaster, a retired Army general, told “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s important for all of us to confront this regime… . None of us can accept a North Korea with a nuclear weapon.”

    I wonder if it's just grandstanding, or if he is actually serious.
    Interesting times ahead.

    I think the world could use a limited nuclear war right now. Shake things up a bit, you know.

    The issue would be on who's soil?
    In this case, it would be on North Korean soil.

    I think a better solution would be a large air offensive with naval support off shore. They can't really target those since they have no delivery capabilities for a nuclear payload, and their air defense will be taken down in a matter of minutes.
    I don't think their pompous leader would detonate a nuclear payload at ground level anywhere near foreign troops. That would be the end of him and his regime, and he knows it.

    That's a bit rough. We can call him "intellectually challenged".
