Options were presented today by the National Security Council showing directions the US may be forced to take in order to deal with the constant threats by North Korea. The US must respond to the threats (that are getting out of control) from North Korea, and the options include some very real–and very serious–choices. The council has apparently concluded that the best options range from killing North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un to sending nukes to South Korea.

Although the possible choices may seem extreme, they are unfortunately scenarios that may have to happen to protect the US–and the world–from a possible nuclear war started by North Korea.

The secluded nation has a history of human rights violations. The government stays in power by keeping their citizens “in line” through extreme propaganda. With North Korea willing to do such horrible things to their own population–like sit by as millions starve to death–it’s hard to think of what they wouldn’t be willing to do to the outside world.

Recently, there were military drills which saw US Navy Seal Team 6 joining South Korea in the region. In response to the joint drills, North Korea claimed that they would nuke the US if a single shot was fired. A powerful response is needed to the dramatic threats.

As recently reported, “The first and most controversial course of action under consideration is placing U.S. nuclear weapons in South Korea. The U.S. withdrew all nuclear weapons from South Korea 25 years ago. Bringing back bombs — likely to Osan Air Base, less than 50 miles south of the capital of Seoul — would mark the first overseas nuclear deployment since the end of the Cold War, an unquestionably provocative move.

“We have 20 years of diplomacy and sanctions under our belt that has failed to stop the North Korean program,” one senior intelligence official involved in the review told NBC News. “I’m not advocating pre-emptive war, nor do I think that the deployment of nuclear weapons buys more for us than it costs,” but he stressed that the U.S. was dealing with a “war today” situation. He doubted that Chinese and American interests coincided closely enough to find a diplomatic solution.”

President Trump is currently in Florida meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. It has been reported that he hopes to have China put pressure on North Korea–to stop the US from being forced to take actions that could lead to nuclear war in the region.
