CBN News announced yesterday that Sen. Graham believes the U.S. is "running out of time" to stop North Korea's nuclear program as exercises of military strength provoke tension between us.
As over 200 U.S. fighter planes are putting on a demonstration of military strength over South Korea, the largest in recent history, in a military exercise know as the "Vigilant Act", North Korea responds, calling the drills a "grave provocation" that according to CBN News "could escalate tensions in the region 'to the brink of nuclear war.'"
"The maneuvers come less than a week after Pyongyang carried out a successful test of its newest Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). The weapon traveled farther than any North Korean missile to date with a potential range that could put the U.S. East Coast in danger."
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who expressed deep concern about the time between now and the seemingly imminent war explained, "The policy of the Trump administration is to deny North Korea the capability to hit America with a nuclear-tipped missile. Not to contain it. Denial means preemptive war as a last resort. That preemption is becoming more likely as their technology matures." The Senator urges the Pentagon to move U.S. dependents and other U.S. citizens out of the South, commenting, "It's crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea given the provocation of North Korea."
CBN News reports: "National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster warned that Pyongyang's continued aggression was inching the Korean Peninsula closer to war."
