McMaster: Potential for war with North Korea 'increasing every day

White House national security adviser HR McMaster said Saturday that North Korea represents "the greatest immediate threat to the United States" and that the potential for war with the communist nation is growing each day.

"I think it's increasing every day, which means that we are in a race, really, we are in a race to be able to solve this problem," McMaster told an audience at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California when asked if North Korea's launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile Tuesday had increased the chance of war.

President Donald Trump remains committed to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, McMaster said, adding that there are nonmilitary ways to deal with the issue, such as calling on China to impose greater economic sanctions against Pyongyang. McMaster noted that Beijing's "tremendous coercive economic power" over North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

HR, a word, please; what, precisely, please, does China get from the US for exerting its "tremendous coercive economic power" over North Korea to get it to denuclearize?!?

And just in case, sir, you are dealing with a really stubborn case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), are you having difficulty remembering that a couple of weeks ago, when China sent one of its top level diplomats/Negotiators to North Korea, Kim Jong Un refused to see him?!?

Kim Jong Un Refuses to see top Chinese Amgassador

I would also like to politely remind you that the US has, historically, begrudgingly acknowledged, and lived with, nuclear nations for whose leadership our leadership didn't hold much of a positive thought; Pakistan comes to mind here. The bottom line here, is we have learned to live with nuclear armed countries we don't like, and whose leadership doesn't particularly like that of the US.

That the potential for war war between the US and North Korea getting uglier, and from your perspective, more close, on a daily basis, is not solely the fault of North Korea, but also the faults of the choices the US government has made, over the last 60- plus years of the Armistice, to not negotiate a true peace treaty with North Korea, unlimiting and unsanctioning trade, and working with North Korea to enter into dialogue about their weapons program.

It originally worked with Iran, although Israel's Netanyahu is cheerleading for a US-led war against it; there is no logical reason that it cannot work with North Korea, except that the US government is hell-bent against really giving it a logical try.

This week, as you well know, there is a huge war game, with South Korean and US troops doing what can only be interpreted as a "dry run" for a bombing campaign against North Korea. This campaign ends this Friday.

During this time-frame, I would not bet against some kind of a "false flag" happpening, to be engineered to appear that North Korea did it, as the "justification" for mounting a full-scale military campaign against it.

But you are going to have to ask yourself, Mr. McMaster, in the most bluntly honest way you can conjur, if this false flag can be done in such a way that it appears credible to the Chinese government; because if it does not, this most probably means war with China over North Korea.

Just a few thoughts, sir.
