Trump Team Evaluating a Response to North Korean Aggression

Share

Trump has been tough on North Korea as the regime has fired a series of ballistic missiles and conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test in recent months. "And ultimately, I will do what's right for the United States and, really, what's right for the world".

Earlier this week news came out that the United Kingdom, a key US ally and NATO member, has been drawing up military plans for a potential armed conflict with North Korea.

Trump slammed more than two decades of US policy toward North Korea on Twitter on Monday, saying past action to quell the crisis "didn't work".

"I think I might have a somewhat different attitude and a different way than other people. Because that is really a world problem; that is beyond just the United States", he said.

"What I suggest is that the USA consistently sends out a message to North Korea that 'what we want is not a regime change or a preventive war, but a policy change toward your denuclearization, '" Yoon said.

"This should have been handled 25 years ago, it should have been handled 20 years ago, and 10 years ago, and five years ago", he said.

On Tuesday, President Trump met with his national security team and top military leaders to discuss military options against North Korea. "It should have been handled by numerous - not just (former USA president Barack) Obama, but certainly president Obama should have taken care of it". Trump's Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, later said that the president was telegraphing with the statement that "military options are on the table". She described herself as a moderate Republican but voiced anxiety about how North Korea might respond to Trump's tough talk and tweets. "In return, North Korea may be able to demand the termination of joint South Korea-U.S. military exercises and sanctions as well as a signing of a peace regime", according to Yoon. They embraced market economies.

Even though tensions remain high over Pyongyang's development of nuclear weapons, Seoul remains committed to dialogue with the North. "Economic trade and let's work on those things that we can agree on and then put the nuclear weapons away", he added.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un again defended Sunday's development of his "valuable" nuclear program, and keeps insisting that it is needed in order to address any USA threats, coinciding with Saturday's Trump statements that "only one thing will work" with Pyongyang.
