IMMEDIATE RELEASE Statement by Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis Press Operations Release No: NR-286-17 Aug. 9, 2017

The United States and our allies have the demonstrated capabilities and unquestionable commitment to defend ourselves from an attack. Kim Jong Un should take heed of the United Nations Security Council’s unified voice, and statements from governments the world over, who agree the DPRK poses a threat to global security and stability.  The DPRK must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons.  The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.

 
President Trump was informed of the growing threat last December and on taking office his first orders to me emphasized the readiness of our ballistic missile defense and nuclear deterrent forces. While our State Department is making every effort to resolve this global threat through diplomatic means, it must be noted that the combined allied militaries now possess the most precise, rehearsed and robust defensive and offensive capabilities on Earth.  The DPRK regime’s actions will continue to be grossly overmatched by ours and would lose any arms race or conflict it initiates.

War.

The Democratic People's Republic will not back down because it cannot back down. The sanctions have secured the posture the DPRK must assume.

Now Kim is forced into a corner. If he takes no action, the sanctions will destroy him. If he comes out swinging, it will be WWIII. 

China will covertly back North Korea. When the DPRK strikes, they will strike with everything they have. Everything. And China will be right behind them.

Kim Jung-un is not bluffing. He will strike with nuclear warheads.

He will strike with nuclear warheads.

If you know anything about the psychology of the east you will know that losing face is worse than death. 

That is why I know that the DPRK is not bluffing in its threats. It is making an open, analog declaration of intent and warfare.

The DPRK means to blow the United States off the map and nothing less.

The only logical option would be to fly B1-Bs over Pyongyang and obliterate it in 1 hour. However, that action would spark WWIII itself.

I'm suggesting that WWIII is unavoidable. There is only a WWIII where America might survive, and one where it surely does not.

You have two options. Avoiding WWIII is not one of them.

Guam will be a target, but there will be no "warning shot". This isn't a game of chicken anymore. This is do or die.

Guam will be but one of numerous simultaneous targets. 

Kim will not just hit Guam, he will launch every warhead he has.

It is laughable to think that the DPRK will fire warning shots around Guam. 

Washington, DC is #1 strike point.

Furthermore,  there is no proven defense capability for an ICBM, the slowest of which travel at around mach 10.

THAAD travels at around mach 8.

You do the numbers.

It's lose lose for north Korea, if they defend themselves they loose, if they give up their arms they loose, remember what happened to Qaddafi, he tried to play nice, that didn't work out so well, for him and the Libyan people........

The united states created this problem by constantly bullying and threatening North Korea.

If you had a bully on your street that kept threatening and intimidating you and your family, what would you do.

All wars are bankers wars...........
