McMaster Stresses North Korea Threat

President Donald Trump's national security adviser H.R. McMaster is stressing that it is "impossible to overstate the danger" posed by North Korea.
In an interview with MSNBC's Hugh Hewitt that aired Saturday, McMaster said Trump has been "deeply briefed" on the strategy on North Korea. Tensions have mounted with Pyongyang's two recent successful tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
McMaster reiterated the administration's position that all options, including a targeted military strike, are on the table. Still, he acknowledged this "would be a very costly war, in terms of —in terms of the suffering of mainly the South Korean people."
McMaster continued: "So what we have to do is — is everything we can to — to pressure this regime, to pressure Kim Jong Un and those around him such that they conclude it is in their interest to denuclearize."

The first thing to do is to make Trump shut the hell up.

Goading a crazy man is not a good idea.

(He ought to know that, har har, but of course, he doesn't.)

Especially when South Korean are sitting ducks.

Not to mention me sitting here on the west coast.

This is what you get people. I hope you're happy.
