Dunford: Peace with NKorea possible, but so is military option

General Joe Dunford, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters in Beijing Thursday that peace with North Korea is a “possibility” but warned that the US has "credible, viable military options" for dealing with Kim Jung-un regime regime. Dunford made the remarks on the last day of a trip to China that included a visit to a northern military zone near China's border with North Korea.

"What's unimaginable to me is not a military option," Dunford said, after  meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. “"What is unimaginable is allowing (North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un) to develop ballistic missiles with a nuclear warhead that can threaten the United States and continue to threaten the region."
