Top US general: No sign North Korea mobilizing to attack US

Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. assured Congress Tuesday that diplomacy continues to lead all efforts to compel Kim Jong Un to abandon his nuclear ambitions, and that despite the North Korean leader’s escalating threat to attack the United States, there is no indication Pyongyang has mobilized the forces to do so. Gen. Dunford said:  “The military dimension today is in full support of the economic and diplomatic pressure campaign the secretary of state is leading in North Korea.” Dunford spoke during a hearing to reconfirm his appointment for another two years.

    All was peacefull, the cool breeze coming in off the ocean, as the waves of Japanese warplanes washed over the resting American Warships, most still asleep, unaware of the impending danger….. history repeating? Where we are most exposed, there they will come.

      Not likely… Almost 80years after Pearl Harbor, US forces are fully comitted to defend mainland and allies. History might be repeating because no one has learnt for the devasting powers in Nukes but certainly not with the kind of “surprise” that happened in in Hawaii in WW2.

    North Korea’s leader has been promising to attack the USA with nuclear weapons.
    North Korea has been testing nuclear weapons, and missiles to carry them.
    But, there’s no evidence that North Korea plans on attacking the USA?
    What do you need for evidence? Mushroom clouds?
