Ron Paul asks: Is North Korea an ‘Imminent Threat’?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said recently that “everything is on the table” to confront North Korea unless the country gives up its nuclear weapons program, meaning presumably a US pre-emptive attack. But surely Kim Jong-Un is aware of what happened to Libya’s Gaddafi when he listened to US demands and abandoned his nuclear weapons program — he was invaded and murdered! So the US suffers from its own aggressive foreign policy, and its words are meaningless next to its actions. Is North Korea really an imminent threat to the United States? No, but if we continue to provoke rather than pull back and allow the two Koreas to solve their own problems what threat there is will increase:

  1. It’s just really asking the same question that Thomas Knapp asks in his piece. And again, asking the question that Thomas knows the answer to but Ron Paul doesn’t show an indication of knowing likewise.

    The question for those who can’t figure it out: Why is the US bothering with N.Korea? So why the inquisitive inflections in Ron’s voice and the puzzled look on his face?

    One thing to take notice to though. All this excitement on N.Korea is warranted because nobody should be missing the fact that Trump is threatening and he doesn’t have the sense to pull in his horns when he’s dicking around with China’s interests.
