In the wake of recent nuclear missile tests conducted by North Korea, retired four-star US General Jack Keane says that bombing the country’s nuclear facilities “may be the only option left.” Keane told Fox News that, if the US was facing an imminent attack from a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), President Donald Trump would have to act preemptively.

“We’re rapidly and dangerously heading towards the reality that the military option is the only one left when it comes to getting North Korea to denuclearize and not weaponized [intercontinental ballistic missiles],” Keane told Fox News. “The Trump administration cannot accept a nuclear launch,” he said. “We cannot rely on our missile-defense system to defeat it and expose the American people to a nuclear attack.” MORE
