Whether you agree with President Trump’s cruise missile strike on Syria or not, one thing is clear — he is a man of action. Trump isn’t interested in babysitting the rogue leaders of the world, and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is on the fast-track to finding that out the hard way.
Needless to say, jaws hit the floor when the Trump White House revealed their potential new deterrent to keep Lil Kim in check. There’s a good chance this could actually work.
The Trump administration is reportedly considering positioning nuclear weapons in South Korea in an attempt to fend off rising hostility from the North Korean regime.
According to NBC News, the National Security Council has presented Donald Trump and his advisers with a range of options to counteract the North Korean threat, among them positioning nuclear weapons in South Korea or assassinating the country’s dictator Kim Jong-un.
Another option would be to perform military exercises as a show of force in the region, using strategic bombers and practicing long range strikes, with the potential to take out some of North Korea’s key military infrastructure.
The consideration for military proliferation in South Korea comes amidst rising tensions in the region, as the North launched ballistic missile tests on Wednesday morning in another provocative act.
“We have 20 years of diplomacy and sanctions under our belt that has failed to stop the North Korean program,” a senior intelligence officer told NBC. “I’m not advocating pre-emptive war, nor do I think that the deployment of nuclear weapons buys more for us than it costs.”
This week, Trump warned that, “if China is not going to solve the North Korean threat, [America] will.”
