Admiral Harry Harris, the head of the US Pacific Command, reportedly told a US Senate hearing on Thursday that the US doesn’t have a “bloody nose” strategy for a possible preventive strike against North Korea, insisting that such a move “is not contemplated.”
Harris noted, at the same time, that the US is preparing to wage a full-scale war on the Korean peninsula if a conflict breaks out.
“We have no bloody nose strategy,” Reuters quoted Harris as saying when asked by a member of the US Senate Armed Services Committee if such a strike option was being considered. “I believe that if we do anything along the kinetic region of the spectrum of conflict, that we have to be ready to do the whole thing.”
Harris was addressing earlier speculation that the US was weighing whether to carry out a limited strike against North Korean missile or other military facilities to convince Pyongyang to halt its nuclear weapons program.
You break it you own it. This fellow forgot the Iraq lesson.
DPRK is not Iraq. Different terrain different everything. But you may try anyway..
You want to start a war, get permission from China and Russia. Have you forgotten how China gave you a bloody nose during the Korean War? You lost the Vietnam war. All your recent military rhetorics with South Korea were after all fireworks only.
Before the Trump administration takes the suicidal plunge,let the belicose administration recogn with the inevitability and possibility of drawing,Russia,China and indeed the whole world into the resultant catastrophic"explosion".
its because they only apply limited war..not the whole thing..because if they do the war ended shortly but more bloody..
Exactly.Need to rethink !
China and Russia aren’t exactly stupid to allow the collapse of N Korea and let the US enter their soft underbelly
The US is the most powerful Country in the world . Who ended the second world war. Where was Russia and China then? The USA single-handed changed the new world order which China and Russia are enjoying today. .God is working with and is for America. America will win any day any country at will. As world leader they always flag the olive branch first.
NK knew very well that a nuke attack on US or any their friendly countries will be a catastrophe to the entire NK as US counter attack will be massive. If Russia and China engage, it will be the end of the world as US Allies will also be involved.
North Korea don’t have gut to counter attack if US goes for limited target…… The Chinese wouldn’t be bothered at all…Xi Jiaping as usual would only be banging table in the UN….as usual
No winners in war except the defense contractors, no matter who is the US president…American taxpayers are gonna get suckered once again..and another nation is goin to be sacrificed once again..and again..and again..Who are these people? .. i really dont understand why powerful nations just cant keep them hands to themselves..except business as usual..for what it’s worth..
likewise .. an obvious mistake by north korea will give valid reason for the US to attack the north.. and russia and China wil not gamb;e the welfare of their countries total distruction too..
