Kissinger: ‘Temptation to Deal’ with North Korea ‘with a Pre-emptive Attack is Strong’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 2, 2018

As Henry should know, any US military intervention is likely to turn out badly for everyone. We study history then ignore what it tells us.

The current North Korean trajectory, Kissinger continued, could lead to nuclear proliferation throughout Asia, as he believes South Korea will not accept being the only Korea without nuclear capability. Japan will follow suit, he said.

The trajectory is due to fear of being attacked. These guys aren’t stupid. They know if they go nuclear we are more likely leave them alone.

They also know US promises not to attack if nuke programs are stopped are lies. They remember Iraq, Libya. That history thing again.

“We will hit that fork in the road, and the temptation to deal with it with a pre-emptive attack is strong, and the argument is rational, but I have seen no public statement by any leading official,” Nixon’s secretary of State told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “But in any event, my own thinking, I would be very concerned by any unilateral American war at the borders of China and Russia, in which we are not supported by a significant part of the world, or at least of the Asian world.”
