It appears that we are moving full steam ahead towards a future military conflict with North Korea as reports are now indicating that the communist Nation has nothing to fear from any U.S. move to widen sanctions aimed at cutting it off from the global financial system. In fact, sources are indicating that North Korea will pursue “acceleration” of its nuclear and missile programs.

The report indicates that this acceleration process also will include the development of a “pre-emptive first strike capability” and an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM), according to the deputy ambassador at the DPRK (North Korean) mission to the United Nations in Geneva.

According, to Reuters, a senior U.S. official in Washington, reported on Monday that the Trump administration is considering what they are calling “sweeping sanctions” as part of a broad review of measures to counter North Korea’s nuclear and missile threat.
