Much of the media is focused on domestic problems and finding new ways to bash President Donald Trump. But, the fact remains that we have a fairly big problem brewing across the Pacific. That problem is called North Korea, and James “Mad Dog” Mattis has a big surprise that isn’t going to make Kim Jong-un very happy at all.
This week, President Donald Trump called out the rogue nation in his speech to the United Nations. Using the strongest terms imaginable, our POTUS promised to totally destroy the nation, should the need arise. But, why such language? It’s because this little Communist nation is getting more and more aggressive.
Past administrations ignored North Korea and its maniacal dictator Kim Jong-un. Over the years, Kim has ignored sanctions and pleas from the international community. It’s clear that his military has been working overtime to arm themselves with weapons of mass destruction. Recent months have seen the nation testing missile after missile, aimed at Japan and other countries.
It’s time we stopped ignoring the little tyrant. The United States needs to take strong measures to make sure North Korea doesn’t drop a nuke or worse on one of our allies in the Pacific. Or, even get a bomb close enough to the West Coast of America to do some damage.
The good news is Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis has not been sleeping. This uncompromising leader and former Marine is ready to bring the pain to North Korea.
The United States may be preparing alternative military options for dealing with North Korea.

According to an article by Business Insider, Mattis made it clear, in no uncertain terms, that the United States had numerous military options available. Those options extended beyond the usual strikes, involving artillery or even troops.
Attacking North Korea directly may not be the best option. For decades, the country has been preparing for an invasion. Rumors abound of secret, underground tunnels and bunkers. Should the U.S. or anyone invade North Korea, its leaders and military can survive for untold lengths of time in these mazes.
Add to that the fact that North Korea is ready to retaliate with terrible force against South Korea, our democratic ally.
Most experts think a military strike on North Korea would invite a devastating response from Pyongyang. The city of Seoul, South Korea, home to 25 million, is well within artillery range of the North, which would most likely use conventional artillery munitions and chemical weapons.

So, what is an intrepid warrior like Mattis to do? Simply use unconventional weapons to rain fiery judgment onto this corrupt country. For years, military contractor Boeing has been developing new forms of weaponry. In 2015, they announced they perfected an electromagnetic pulse weapon that can target and destroy electrical systems. That, without the collateral damage brought on by traditional artillery and bombs. That means we can cripple North Korea’s weapon systems with kinetic options that reduce the loss of life.
“Just to clarify, you said that there were possible military options that would not create a grave risk to Seoul,” a reporter said later. “Are we talking kinetic options as well?”
“Yes, I don’t want to go into that,” Mattis said, agreeing that his closely held military option involved kinetic action, a euphemism to describe lethal military force. [Source: Business Insider]
This news comes after North Korea themselves threatened to attack the United States in a similar way.

North Korea’s plan, which they boasted about on their national news, involves flying a plane over the continental United States and detonating a nuke. The EMP would be generated by the nuke, causing our electrical systems to be destroyed — a terrible situation to be sure. But, I’m betting North Korea has more than a few problems in figuring out how to get a plane over our country.
The Pentagon’s plan is much more sophisticated than that and involves pinpoint accuracy using missiles and drones. North Korea wouldn’t be able to stop an incoming EMP blast from the United States. They’d only notice it when it was too late.
Mattis has made it clear that we have the tools to render North Korea completely helpless. We can defeat them before they even launch a missile. That’s something Kim Jong-un should be taking very seriously.
