“I think it’s important to recognize that the political and diplomatic efforts of the past 20 years to bring North Korea to the point of denuclearization have failed,” said Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, during a news conference in Seoul.

WASHINGTON, DC | March 17, 2017

“Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of security and diplomatic measures. All options are on the table,” he added.

If you are unaware of what is happening with North Korea, here’s a brief update.

North Korea began testing missiles that could potentially reach Europe with nuclear payloads.


In response, the United States deployed a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea, which can use radar to detect and help neutralize any launches from North Korea.

The communist Chinese government then became involved. It perceives the THAAD as a threat to its interests, and retaliated by punishing South Korean businesses with restrictions.

“We believe these actions are unnecessary and troubling,” Tillerson said, referring to the restrictions.

Via Daily Mail The U.S. appears to be losing patience. On Tuesday, it ratchetted-up the pressure further with the deployment to Korean waters of the super-carrier USS Carl Vinson

“We also believe it is not the way for a regional power to help resolve what is a serious threat for everyone. So we hope China will alter its position on punishing South Korea.”

“We hope they will work with us to eliminate the reason THAAD is required.”


And that brings us to today. With Rex Tillerson putting all options on the table, the probability of a military conflict with China has gone from low to, at least, 50/50, possibly greater.

Some believe that North Korea is being used as a proxy regime by China to advance its interests in the region. Thus if the US strikes North Korea, the situation may well escalate to a larger war, and it could be global in scope if China and Japan get involved.
