Tillerson says diplomacy with North Korea has ‘failed’; Pyongyang warns of war

The Trump administration made a clear break Thursday with diplomatic efforts to talk North Korea out of a nuclear confrontation, bringing the United States and its Asian allies closer to a military response than at any point in more than a decade.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that 20 years of trying to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear program had failed and that he was visiting Asia “to exchange views on a new approach.”

Soon after Tillerson’s remarks, in a sign of mounting tensions, the North Korean Embassy held an extraordinary news conference in Beijing to blame the potential for nuclear war on the United States while vowing that its homegrown nuclear testing program will continue in self-defense.

North Korea has amassed a sizable nuclear stockpile and appears at the brink of being able to strike the U.S. mainland and American allies in Asia. The rising threat from the isolated military dictatorship has prompted the Trump administration to begin assessing its options for how to respond and serves as an early test for how the president will confront an increasingly volatile international situation.

One potential immediate response would be to strengthen existing South Korean missile capabilities or to provide Japan with new offensive missile ability. Japan’s defense chief told parliament this month that he would not rule out “first strike” capability, which would be a major departure from Japan’s postwar pacifist traditions.  (continued)

One has to wonder if the only way to get it through NK head is for Japan to go ahead with a first strike option. I wish there was a way to do that without killing innocent people. They say they are training Delta and Special ops to go in and take out Kim Jong panties in a wad or whatever his name is but I always think to myself why the news would be touting something like that as news.

yep!  Like Reagan said our enemies need to fear us and our allies respect us.  We lost that during Obama's reign.

I think we have a president who will do a lot more than play golf every chance he gets.
