N Korea may have sealed their fate with the Tuesday ballistic missile test. They’ve proven themselves able to strike the United States, Trump will not allow that threat to continue to
America’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley made the statement that is the opening for comments by Senator Lindsey Graham. Haley addressed the UN earlier in the day on Wednesday, following the latest ballistic missile test by North Korea on Tuesday.
Haley said that “If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday. And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.”
Martha McCallum notes how the entire United States is within striking range of a North Korean nuclear missile, including the east coast, New York City and Washington, DC, in 39 minutes or less. McCallum asks Sen Graham what President Trump meant when he said, “We’ll take care of it” following the missile launch.
Graham says, “He’s telling China and the world at large, ‘If you don’t stop North Korea, I will.’ And what would trigger a war? The day the President believes that the North Koreans have the capability to launch an ICBM with a nuclear weapon on top that can actually hit America, he’s never going to let that day happen.”
“So his policy,” says Graham, “is to deny the North Korean regime the ability to hit America with a nuclear weapon and we’ll go to war to stop that.” Graham says Trump is sending China an unmistakable message that if they don’t change North Korea’s behavior we will preemptively attack North Korea and destroy their regime.
Graham says that China needs to be given a graph about what happens in their backyard if we are forced to attack North Korea. Graham says he doesn’t think that China or the North Koreans believe the reality or doubt our resolve and sincerity.
He says either North Korea is not listening to what China is saying or China is not saying what they need to be saying. He points out that just utilizing their oil exports to North Korea China could put a stop to this nonsense in a day.
He says President Trump must convince the Chinese that he is deadly serious about a preemptive attack against North Korea, “That we’re not going to live our lives as Americans under a nuclear threat from a crazy man in North Korea. And if there’s going to be a war to stop this threat it’s going to be in China’s backyard not in America’s backyard.”
He believes that President Trump has delivered that message unequivocally to the Chinese. Obviously nobody is doing what they need to do. They are forcing us to the brink of war in the process. President Trump is not going to back down. The stakes are too high.
