The US Secretary of State has just reportedly drawn some red lines regarding the current tensions that have risen with North Korea. According to sources, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently visited Seoul and made the following statement: “Twenty years of talking has brought us to the point we are today,” Tillerson said at a news conference. “Talk is not going to change the situation.” If North Korea threatens South Korean or American forces or elevates the level of its weapons program, Tillerson warned, a preemptive military action is “on the table.”
Excerpt From The Los Angeles Times:
Tillerson’s comments did not come entirely out of left field. For months, Washington has been abuzz over the possibility that North Korea may successfully test an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to an American city. In a New Year’s address, North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un indicated such a test could come sooner than we think.
