Striking North Korea Could Harm Key U.S. Ally, Analysts Warn

International security analysts have cast doubt on reports that the United States may be considering a preemptive military strike against North Korea, warning such action could have huge consequences on a key U.S. ally and upset a carefully managed balance of power between Kim Jong Un and the West.

NBC News, citing multiple senior intelligence officials, reported Thursday evening that the U.S. may launch military action against North Korea if it carried out suspected plans to conduct its sixth nuclear test in the coming days.

Several reports have speculated the North could do so after satellite imagery showed an unusual level of activity at the country’s Punggye-ri nuclear testing facility. And North Korea’s vice foreign minister told the Associated Press Friday that Pyongyang has no qualms about launching a preemptive strike if the U.S. displayed any “reckless” military aggression.
