Obama's Defense Secretary Nominee Wanted to Bomb North Korea

President Obama's new nominee for Secretary of Defense should pass the neocon warmonger test with flying colors.

Noted TIME last year:

Ashton Carter...advocated bombing North Korea seven years ago when he was safely in his bunker at Harvard University.

Along with Clinton-era defense secretary William Perry, Carter urged in Time in 2006 that the Republican George W. Bush Administration conduct a “surgical strike” on a North Korean missile as it was readied for launch.

Carter wrote:
Such a strike could be seen by the North Korean leadership for what it is: a limited act of defense of the U.S. homeland against a gathering threat, and not an overall attack on North Korea…
For the U.S., the risk of inaction will prove far greater.
