UN Amb. Haley says ‘no problem’ allowing SECDEF Mattis to ‘handle North Korea’

Haley is just the latest ranking Trump administration official to refute naysayers regarding military options for North Korea

(National SentinelNational Security: The nation’s top UN diplomat said Friday she has “no problem” with Secretary of Defense James Mattis dealing with North Korea, should all other options fail to convince Pyongyang to end its nuclear and ICBM development programs.

As reported by Fox News, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said recent sanctions have “strangled” North Korea’s “economic situation,” calling the impact “dramatic.”

However, she noted further that there’s only so much the U.N. Security Council can do “when you cut 90 percent of the trade and 30 percent of the oil.”

“So having said that, I have no problem kicking it to General Mattis because I think he has plenty of options,” Haley said at the White House briefing, where she and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster previewed U.S. efforts at the U.N. General Assembly next week.

Haley is just the latest ranking Trump administration official to refute naysayers in academia and the liberal diplomatic corps who have continually insisted the U.S. has ‘no military option’ for North Korea that is viable.

McMaster, during his portion of the back-and-forth with the White House Press Corps, said the same thing.

“We’ve been kicking the can down the road” with North Korea, “and now we’re out of road. So for those who have been commenting about a lack of military options, there is a military option,” he said, adding, “That’s not what we prefer to do. So what we have to do is call on all nations, call on everyone to do everything we can to address this global problem short of war.”

He also went on to note that “denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula is the only acceptable outcome.

North Korea’s latest nuclear test was its most powerful yet. As reported by Forward Observer, analysts believe its yield was about 250 kilotons, when initially it was estimated to have been 100 kilotons.

  1. In the Bible its stated very clearly and unambiguously that the one thing God hates above all abominations and sins is the hypocrites, and so one needs to think carefully about ones own ownership of weapons of Mass Destruction and ones own belief in infallibility of ideology before one starts telling the rest of the , obviously non free world what they can and cant posses in their peacekeeping efforts to maintain their own ideologies. Can one?And lets be realistic, its perfectly clear that North Korea ha ABSOLUTELY nil intentions of invading or conquering anyone OR INDEED ANY ECONOMIC IMPERIALISTIC motivations, and is purely acting out of fear and reasons of demonstrating capacity to retaliate against violent outsiders with naval operations and military bases all targeting little isolated nation and totally engaging in economic trade warfare’s openly as well ..
