James Mattis orders military to prepare for nuclear war with North Korea

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has ordered the U.S. military to prepare for a full-blown nuclear war with North Korea in the coming months. 

Speaking at the Association of the U.S. Army’s annual meeting, Mattis urged soldiers to “be ready” in the event that President Trump declares war.

“What can the U.S. military do to lessen the likelihood of conflict on the Korean peninsula?” a questioner asked him at the meeting. reports: Mattis said the government is currently using a “diplomatically led, economic sanction-buttressed effort” to try to deter North Korea from its nuclear ambitions but said the future is unpredictable.

“Now what does the future hold? Neither you nor I can say, so there’s one thing the U.S. Army can do, and that is you have got to be ready to ensure that we have military options that our president can employ if needed,” Mattis said.

Mattis again said the effort to stop North Korea is diplomatically led, touting the United Nations Security Council’s recent unanimous votes to impose further sanctions against the rogue country for its belligerent behavior.

“The international community has spoken, but that means the U.S. Army must stand ready,” Mattis said. “So if you’re ready, that’s your duty at this point in time.”

Trump tweeted again about ongoing tensions between the U.S. and North Korea on Monday, saying that giving the country billions of dollars over the past 25 years did not work. Trump has warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that his country will face destruction if it ever acts on any of its nuclear threats against the U.S. or its allies.

  1. “diplomatically led, economic sanction-buttressed effort” to try to deter North Korea from its nuclear ambitions” What a crock of s… The most obvious painless way to avoid the Korean Peninsula escalation reaching critical mass is for the American gangsters to sign a peace agreement with DPRK, long overdue for 63 years. But this would mean the rogue nation US would then have to dismantle its bases in South Korea and leave. And this is something the American racketeers are willing to do because basically all the hoopla about Korea is actually about China and Russia. No one buys that their military presense in South Korea Guam and Okinawa Japan is
    for DPRK. China with its increasing economic and military power, threatens the US’s global hegemony in the Pacific, and the Neocons and the deep state try to rally public support for Military buildup by exaggerating the threat from DPRK.At the same time and through their wooden dummy Trump, try to quash efforts by Rex Tillerson to open channels of communication with DPRK, with the dummy tweeting in his totally unprofessional manner to Tillerson that his efforts are waste of time. The fact that a confrontation with DPRK even with conventional weapons will cost the lives of millions of South Koreans means nothing to the war criminal USA nation, as long their a*s is thousands of miles away. And a nuclear confrontation will definitely mean the beginning of WWIII.
