A national defense analyst predicts the United States is drawing closer to a bloody war with North Korea and its fanatical leader.
Kim Jong-un is a “psychopath” with the power of his country behind him, warns Bob Maginnis of the Family Research Council.
“And therefore we must be prepared to act accordingly,” he tells OneNewsNow.
A war on the Korean peninsula, Defense Secretary James Mattis told CBS show “Meet the Press,” would be “catastrophic” if diplomatic efforts fail and combat ensues.
Another war between North and South “would be probably the worst kind of fighting in most people’s lifetimes,” he told the news show.
Days later, Mattis told a security conference in Singapore that North Korea is an “urgent military threat” and at another point called its nuclear weapons program a”clear and present danger” to its neighbors and the U.S.
The United States has approximately 28,000 troops permanently based in South Korea, which remains technically at war with North Korea after an armistice was signed in 1953 to end the conflict.
North Korea, meanwhile, reportedly has hundreds of artillery pieces, hidden and fortified and trained on South Korea’s capital city, Seoul, which is located approximately 35 miles from North Korea.
Maginnis says pre-emptive action against North Korea must take out that artillery using precision-guided munitions.
“And it would not be a first strike or a second strike,” Maginnis predicts. “It would have to be an ongoing effort.”
