Pentagon Considers Shooting Down North Korea Missile Tests

Pentagon Considers Shooting Down North Korea Missile Tests

Just when a few hours had passed without any escalation around the Korean Peninsula, The Guardian reports that the US military is considering shooting down North Korean missile tests as a show of strength to Pyongyang according to two sources briefed on the plans.

As the USS Carl Vinson heads towards the peninsula, along with two oither carriers, the Pentagon is looking for ways short of war to pressure North Korea into denuclearization, particularly if Pyongyang goes forward with an anticipated sixth nuclear test.

The option, which defense secretary James Mattis has briefed to Congress, has, as The Guardian reportsyet to mature into a decision by the military to intercept a tested missile. One US official said the prospective shoot-down strategy would be aimed at occurring after a nuclear test, with the objective being to signal Pyongyang that the US can impose military consequences for a transgression Donald Trump has said is unacceptable. But experts and former officials said shooting down a North Korean missile during a test risks an escalation that Washington may not be able to control, one that risks war on the Korean peninsula and potentially devastating consequences to allies South Korea and Japan.

McMaster: "Working With China On Range Of Options" To Respond To North Korea Provocation

McMaster: "Working With China On Range Of Options" To Respond To North Korea Provocation

President Trump's top security advisor, Lt Gen HR McMaster told ABC News that the US and China are "working on a range of options" on North Korea, adding that there is consensus that this was a "situation that just can't continue" as tensions mount over the country's nuclear and missile programs. McMaster also called the regime in North Korea "hostile" and said said that Sunday's failed test fit into a pattern of "provocative and destabilizing and threatening behavior on the part of the North Korean regime." "There is an international consensus now, including the Chinese leadership, that this is a situation that just cannot continue," McMaster said adding that "this latest missile test just fits into a pattern of provocative and destabilizing and threatening behavior on the part of the North Korean regime." McMaster also said that North Korea's Kim is unpredictable and has demonstrated his brutality. The comments followed a statement by a White House advisor who told Reuters that the "U.S. doesn’t need to expend any resources reacting to failed missile launch by North Korea" who added that the U.S. wasn’t surprised by the launch and was “anticipating” it.
