Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter says U.S. Pre-emptive Strike On North Korea Could Lead to ‘Invasion’ of South Korea

Former Defense Secretary Ash Carter says a U.S. preemptive strike against North Korea’s nuclear-weapons program could prompt the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, to try to invade South Korea.

Carter, who served as defense secretary in the Obama administration, told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on “This Week” Sunday that if the U.S. preemptively strikes North Korea, “It’s quite possible that they would as a consequence of that launch … attempt an invasion of South Korea.”

“I’m confident of the outcome of that war, which would be the defeat of North Korea,” Carter said. “But, Martha, I need to caution you, this is a war [with] … an intensity of violence associated with it that we haven’t seen since the last Korean War.”

“Even though the outcome is certain, it is a very destructive war,” the former defense secretary said, noting that the South Korean capital of Seoul, with about 25 million area residents, is on the border between the two countries. “So one needs to proceed very carefully here.”

Carter’s comments come as President Trump is set to meet this week with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The Trump administration wants China to get North Korea to end its nuclear program.

But Carter said the Chinese have been “unwilling” to take on that role because, in the short term, they are “fearful of a collapse of North Korea or a war” that would result in a “unified Korea allied with the United States on their border.”

Carter also commented on U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s taking a different, tougher tone toward Russia than President Trump himself.

“In strategic affairs, clarity and consistency are very important,” Carter said. “This is our government and our foreign policy, and we all need to wish it success. But there does need to be clarity and consistency.”


So if USA hit's North Korea for it's illegal nuclear program and for threatening us and our allies....then South Korea could be attacked and China may have no choice but to get its military in on the action.

That sounds bad.  But what choice to we have?  Allow the fat-man-in-a-pant-suit to threaten the world with nukes with NO CONSEQUENCES?

As you survey the world and its governments and then try to figure out what USA's government should say or's almost like playing a game of 3-D chess.  Anything you touch is going to have multi-dimensional effects.

Yes, we could whip North Korea in a war, BUT would China then allow a unified Korea which is backed by America to be right on it's border?   Maybe not!  So then what?!

Reading it all and pondering it all makes one eager for the day when Christ himself comes back to earth and smashes all the worldly forms of government and establishes his perfect rule of Benevolent Dictator.

After that day there will be no more Republics, no more Communist Rule, no more Socialism, no more Congress or Parliaments but only Christ sitting on the throne and ruling with an iron rod.  All the man-made forms of government will blow away like "chaff on a threshing floor in the summer."

Daniel 2

34 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

44 “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

Jesus Christ is that rock!  Amen!  Come Lord Jesus!
