Rex Tillerson Not Ready to Rule Out Military Action Against North Korea

 

North Korea and its despotic dictator Kim Jong Un have been pushing all of the wrong buttons in recent weeks with their illegal ballistic missile tests.

This, of course, is on top of constant threats by the bizarre regime that included the possible detonation of a nuclear weapon on Donald Trump’s inauguration day.  (Spoiler alert:  Didn’t happen).  Now, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has had enough of the tyrannical leader’s nonsense, and is sending an extremely strong message to North Korea and to U.S. allies in the region.

“’Nothing has been taken off the table,’ he said, when asked whether he would rule out nuclearization of the peninsula, during the interview with Fox News.

“Tillerson, who’s called the past 20 years of diplomacy toward North Korea a failure, has said the world needs a new strategy.

“’Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended,’ said Tillerson in a later press availability in Seoul with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se.

“‘If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level we believe requires action that option is on the table,’ Tillerson also said, adding the U.S. wants to avoid military conflict and hopes other measures convince North Korea to suspend its weapons programs.

“President Trump, bolstering his secretary of state’s comments, tweeted Friday morning that North Korea is ‘behaving very badly.’”

While the threat of staring down the most powerful military the world has even known would be plenty of deterrent for most word leaders, Kim Jong Un is not most leaders.  His role as supreme leader, some form of God-Empower, and all-knowing deity is slowing slipping away according to defectors from the isolationist nation.  This, in turn, could lead the entire region into chaos as the young tyrant struggles to maintain control of his oppressed people.
