    Rex Tillerson: Military Action Against North Korea Is ‘On the Table’

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned Friday that military action against North Korea was “on the table” if the country continued to develop its weapons program.

    “If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action then that option is on the table,” he told a press conference in South Korea.

    “Certainly we do not want for things to get to a military conflict,” he added. “But obviously if North Korea takes actions that threaten the South Korean forces or our own forces then that would be met with an appropriate response.”

    North Korea carried out two nuclear tests last year, and in January a senior North Korean official told NBC News that the country was ready to test-fire an intercontinental ballistic missile “at any time, at any place.”

    2. On the table would be OK.

    They could line up those little plastic soldiers on the table and attack each other with marbles and Bic lighters.  They could even make “Ptchew!” noises and argue about who killed whom. All on the table.

    4. This is nothing new,

    It always has been and the plans are constantly reviewed and updated.  However, to do something without China’s understanding and approval (either announced or implied) would be a serious problem.
