    Tillerson Delivers Stark Warning To North Korea Of Possible Military Response

    Fri Mar 17, 2017 | 1:21pm EDT

    By Ju-min Park and James Pearson | SEOUL
    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday issued the Trump administration’s starkest warning yet to North Korea, saying that a military response would be “on the table” if Pyongyang took action to threaten South Korean and U.S. forces.

    Speaking in Seoul after visiting the Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean peninsula and some of the 28,500 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, Tillerson said former President Barack Obama’s policy of “strategic patience” towards Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs was over.

    “We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table,” Tillerson told a news conference.

    He said any North Korean actions that threatened U.S. or South Korean forces would be met with “an appropriate response,” turning up the volume of the tough language that has marked President Donald Trump’s approach to North Korea.

    3. Diplomacy. The art of saying nice doggy while reaching for a rock

    It’s the only way to get Nork attention.

      4. That's duplicity, not diplomacy.

      It’s one of the reasons the US is considered the biggest threat to peace and security, by most of the world.

    5. Americans tend to give little consideration

    to how our policies affect people in that region. There are Koreans still alive, who remember the US government committing against their country, some of the worst crimes in human history.
