A NORTH Korea specialist claims the Trump administration does not even have to feel “threatened by North Korea” to launch World War 3 against Kim Jong-Un’s regime.
Tensions on the Korean penisula have been growing to unprecedented levels in recent weeks amid hostile rhetoric and North Korean missile tests.
Kim Jong-Un has pledged to blitz the US territory of Guam, while the communist state’s military is quickly developing a nuclear weapon capable of striking the US mainland.
Despite these threats, North Korean specialist and US military expert Bruce Klingner claims Donald Trump could launch an all-out war without even being threatened.
Speaking to Fox News, Mr Klingner said: “US policy states that we would retaliate if we were attacked or pre-eminently if we had knowledge they were going to attack us.
“But, under Trump, there is a new option, a preventive attack.
“Even if we do not believe a strike is imminent or threat is real, we would attack them to prevent them from developing more missiles.”
In an interview broadcast yesterday, President Trump left it up in the air whether war with North Korea was on the cards. read more…
