Trump asked the Government to offer him military alternatives for North Korea and the generals are scared of just what he'll make with them. John Iadarola, Francesca Fiorentini, and also Mark Thompson, the hosts of The Young Turks, talk about. Tell us what you think in the comment area listed below.

" WASHINGTON– The White Home has expanded disappointed in current weeks by exactly what it takes into consideration the Government's reluctance to offer President Trump with options for a military strike against North Korea, inning accordance with officials, the latest indicator of a deepening split in the management over the best ways to challenge the nuclear-armed program of Kim Jong-un.

The nationwide security advisor, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, thinks that for Mr. Trump's warnings to North Korea to be reliable, the USA must have well-developed army strategies, according to those officials.

But the Pentagon, they say, is fretted that the White Residence is relocating as well quickly towards armed forces activity on the Oriental Peninsula that could escalate catastrophically. Offering the head of state too many options, the officials stated, might increase the chances that he will act.

The stress gurgled to the surface today with the disclosure that the White Residence had actually abandoned plans to choose a prominent Korea specialist, Victor D. Cha, as ambassador to South Korea. Mr. Cha recommended that he was sidelined due to the fact that he cautioned management authorities versus a "precautionary" armed forces strike, which, he later on created, might spiral "right into a war that would likely eliminate 10s, otherwise hundreds, of thousands of Americans."

    Trump is an idiot!!!! Why is he fighting North Korea in the first place!!!!!!

    • Posted by Surge Álvez, at Reply

      It all boils down to insatiable greed. They see North Korea as one of the last few places on the planet they are NOT making money from, and it drives them crazy. “They” being whatever wealthy family is controlling Trump.

      By asking that question you demonstrate you have no understanding of geopolitics or history. North Korea is a hideous dynastic dictatorship who enslaves their own people and threatens US and it’s allies with nuclear weapons.

      Airborne Gibbon, or you have no understanding of history. NK is keeping such a tight grip on its people, because the US is known to meddling in sovereign foreign countries, from paying of politicians, to journalists, to criminal gangs, or rebels, all happened. The US is known for its illegal operations in foreign countries. Operation Ajax. Operation Cyclone. Just to name two that are open CIA files. NK is also at WAR with the US, for decades now, so of course they will threaten the US and demonstrate their weapons and test them. Its called being at War. An armistice is not a peace deal. And the US is refusing any peace negotiations unless NK disarms all their nukes in that deal, which they won’t do, and I wouldn’t either in their position. They are a sovereign country, they are allowed to have nukes like everybody else. If they weren’t at constant war, maybe they wouldn’t need to put all their money into the military, and could actually help their own people, but that is hard when you are forced to keep up your military, because the US might invade otherwise.

    Is Trump mad at north, and South Korea for the Olympic games deal. Someone give him a toy button.

    • Posted by eathenbad, at Reply

      Big DWP: you’re just embarrassing yourself with your ignorance. Within South Korea, a growing number of people are voicing concerns, especially when the South Korean president kicked out half the national team who had spent so much time and efforts practicing for 4 years for the olympics. he did that without any warning or announcement and filled that half with North Korean players. when journalists asked about that, he simply said ‘the ice hockey team are not going to win any medals so it shouldn’t matter that much’ and that enraged so many people. there was even a song that came out with lyrics that are criticizing the president and it got 1 million views so fast(and a very high ratio of likes:dislikes) (South Korean population is a lot smaller than America’s, so 1 million views a lot more than you think) and then the South Korean government is suing the song writer right now for criticizing the president. the new president is at least as authoritarian as Trump if not more.

      eathenbad… thanks for the info, so your saying that your new leader is very liberal minded and thinks he knows what’s best for all of you. He’s not interested in your citizens opinion.

    • Posted by eathenbad, at Reply

      Big DWP: well, the word ‘liberal’ is tricky if we’re talking about South Korean politics. Both conservative and liberal party in South Korea are super conservative when it comes to social policies. For example, both parties agree that abortion should be illegal(it was and is illegal in S.K), marijuana should be illegal(was and is illegal in S.K), both filming and watching porn for adults should be illegal(adults watching porn became illegal quite long ago and is still illegal), gay marriage should be illegal(was and is illegal). basically what Ted Cruz could only dream of. what divides the conservatives and liberals in South Korea is the relations with ‘North Korea , US’ and fiscal policies but even regarding the fiscal policy, the liberal party in South Korea is centrist at best while the conservative party is also kind of fiscally centrist.(and there’s a third party that is democratic socialist but they get so little vote). now, back to the main point, I don’t think you can call him ‘very liberal minded’. I think you should describe him as “fiscally slightly left leaning centrist and socially rightwing that push authoritarian policies with very pro North Korean policies.”

      eathenbad, I get that the south Korean athletes are not happy about it, that is quite understandable. But on the other hand, this is about something bigger than individual athletes or winning medals, its about sending a message, trying to bring the two Koreas closer together. So I would agree with that move from the president, personally. But of course its kinda shitty for the athletes that just got kicked out and for the south korean team overall. And suing a guy for criticizing the government is quite disturbing. I didn’t know that SK is that authoritarian and conservative. So, thanks for some insight.

    “kill tens or hundreds of thousands of people in a couple of days”… not quite “couple of days”, more like couple of hours.

    *The Pentagon* is afraid the President might use too much military force. Just think about that.

  7. Posted by Noe's Korea Unedited, at Reply

    I’m a progressive and I live here in South Korea – but the war games are held because the South Korean soldiers need to be ready in case war were to break out. They have to train new soldiers every year. Stopping the war games to appease North Korea is like the democrats caving into the government shutdow to appease republican voters.

    • Posted by vick3d, at Reply

      People repeatedly talk about the artillery threat to Seoul. Is this a valid fear or in the case of war does South Korea have shelters or an evacuation plan in place?

    • Posted by Noe's Korea Unedited, at Reply

      South Koreans are prepared – they always prepare for that. But South Koreans arent afraid because they also know North Korea wouldnt do anything. Only people in the west talk about North Korea like a threat. People here don’t even pay attention to them.

    Considering Donald Trump’s immaturity and emotional instability, the Pentagon has a legitimate concern.

    In the middle of the night, the military needs to send a Special Forces team to “black bag” Donald Trump and secretly deport him to North Korea, where Kim Jong Un can personally torture him to death as part of his public propaganda, in exchange for Kim to stop the saber rattling. I think more than half the world would tune in to North Korean state TV to watch Donnie beg and cry as he is slowly butchered like a piece of rotten meat. Kim and the rest of the world would both get big wins!

      Mhm… would be a great follow-up for Trump, even worse..

    • Posted by ACGreyhound04, at Reply

      Romek Schellekens – There’s a difference between sick and evil. Sickness can be treated. Trump is in that very rare category of pure, irredeemable evil. I don’t even think his own family loves him, or would mourn him. The only reason he hasn’t caused even more harm in his truly despicable life is that he is also breathtakingly, clinically stupid. 65 or 70 IQ at most. I think he just added 100 points when he said 165.

    • Posted by Romek Schellekens, at Reply

      Watching you rant and judge someone you know nothing about like this other than what you see on TV makes you more stupid than him. In case you didn’t know, Trump didn’t WANT to win the presidency, it was a publicity stunt, that he actually did says more about the people who voted him into office than about him.

    The pentagon should send tiny hands donny a copy of John Hersey’s “Hiroshima”, before he starts launching nukes. It should be required reading for all world leaders who control nuclear weapons.

      The problem there is; tiny orange hands can’t read & wouldn’t understand it anyway.

    Well, since Isis and Al-Qaeda no longer scare us, Trump is our new terrorist.. Fear has always been the tool used to control this country and distract us from other issues at hand.

    Plan B when the Nunes memo doesn’t get you off the Russia hook, start a war

  15. Posted by Zach Crawford, at Reply

    A nuclear first strike or even a non conventional first strike would not do much damage to the DPRK’s nuclear capability or conventional capabilities. A lot of the DPRK’s military infrastructure is underground, much of it under hundreds of meters of granite mountainside. All it would do is make the DPRK the victim and would transform much of the Kim family’s propaganda into concrete fact. Even if somehow the U.S. actually disabled the DPRK’s capacity to function (and no one else intervened), they would be left with a lot of dead civilians and living angry/scared civilians who would now have concrete evidence that the U.S. is exactly what they have been told is was for the last 50 years. But they would still need help and aid from someone. There is no way in hell they would accept it from americain or NATO but they would probably accept it from China. China would likely “heroically” send in piles of aid and troops to “rebuild” and while they are at it slip a puppet government in place as well. Because they would be stupid not to.

    Make the peace options simple, and outline the war options as involving a LOT of work, personally, for trump. Make anything other than the peace options look hard.
