Senator Lindsey Graham came out swinging today saying that our military experts are wrong and that North Korea should be destroyed.
“There is a military option to destroy North Korea’s program and North Korea itself,” Graham said on NBC. “If there’s going to be a war to stop him [Kim Jong Un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they’re going to die over there, they’re not going to die here and [President Trump] told me that to my face.”
“That may be provocative, but not really,” Graham said. “When you’re president of the United States, where does your allegiance lie? To the people of the United States. This man, Kim Jong Un, is threatening America with a nuclear tip missile. President Trump doesn’t want a war, the Chinese can stop this, but to China, South Korea, and Japan, Donald Trump is not going to allow this missile.”
“I’m saying it’s inevitable unless North Korea changes, because you’re making our president pick between regional stability and homeland security,” he said. “He’s having to make a choice that no president wants to make. You can stop North Korea militarily or diplomatically, I prefer the diplomatic approach. But they will not be allowed to have a missile to hit America with a nuclear weapon on top and to allow them to do that is really abandoning homeland security.”
