North Korea reaches new crisis level

North Korea reaches new crisis level

For wars to start you need ingredients.

Troops and equipment deployed, trained, with missions. CHECK
Foreign/Leaders who have desperate economic situations. CHECK
FLeaders who are killers by nature or unstable. CHECK
A lack of legal barriers to war or aggression. CHECK
Allies with which you have exhausted diplomacy. CHECK
The complete failure of direct diplomacy. CHECK
A strong rationale for war. CHECK
Pentagon agreement. MAYBE
A workable plan the Generals like. DOUBTFUL
A president willing to put the risks of war above non-war. MAYBE

I say maybe because the president tweeted his displeasure with China over their increase in trade volume with NK today — and while I agree that is appalling — I also read the Chinese have turned off the gasoline sales pipeline to NK, their only. If true, that is a significant step and should be given a month to work.

We only need a few of these bottom points to tip over and we’re in a mess in North Korea, we should try all other options. I don’t doubt their missiles are a threat, but I consider it a cardinal rule to never fight a two-front war and we are at war with ISIS. The president needs to find a way to stop this NK ICBM program without starting another war.
