This is precisely what I said yesterday, and these men are right to announce this. There is ALWAYS a military solution to any global threat when you are the most powerful military on the planet and can recruit other nations like no other.

If North Korea is an existential threat to America and can nuke America you can be damned sure Mattis will not hesitate. I am sure South Korea knows what is at stake and they must be prepared to confront this threat because a conventional attack on Seoul won't be nearly as damaging as a nuclear attack

Tillerson, Mattis rebuff Bannon claim of no 'military solution' for North Korea

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Thursday rebuffed White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s claim to a liberal magazine that “there’s no military solution” for North Korea’s nuclear threats.

Bannon unloaded in an interview published late Wednesday by The American Prospect. He hammered the importance of what he called the “economic war with China,” dubbing the tensions with Pyongyang a “sideshow” and rejecting the notion there’s a military solution.

Asked Thursday about those comments, Tillerson and Mattis pushed back.
