Tillerson delivers stark warning to North Korea of possible military response | Reuters

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday issued the Trump administration's starkest warning yet to North Korea, saying that a military response would be "on the table" if Pyongyang took action to threaten South Korean and U.S. forces.

Speaking in Seoul after visiting the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean peninsula and some of the 28,500 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, Tillerson said former President Barack Obama's policy of "strategic patience" towards Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs was over.

"We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table," Tillerson told a news conference.

And this wouldn't be a problem except for that egregious nutcase who is using his country as his personal freaky man cave. I hope we have some plan for removing him like he did his brother so thousands and thousands of Koreans don't have to die.
