HOT HOT NBC NEWS: U.S. May Launch Preemptive Strike Against North Korea

The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.

North Korea has warned that a "big event" is near, and U.S. officials say signs point to a nuclear test that could come as early as this weekend.

The intelligence officials told NBC News that the U.S. has positioned two destroyers capable of shooting Tomahawk cruise missiles in the region, one just 300 miles from the North Korean nuclear test site.

American heavy bombers are also positioned in Guam to attack North Korea should it be necessary, and earlier this week, the Pentagon announced that the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group was being diverted to the area.

The U.S. strike could include missiles and bombs, cyber and special operations on the ground.



  1. I really dislike all this talk of "may launch" or "very likely strike". You cannot predict the future and all this talk smacks of 1-800 psychic predictions. How about we stick with the was and the is. What may be in the future will happen in due time. If I want to read or watch folks with prediction fever I would watch lamestream news people.

  2. This is completely nuts. I wonder how the Trump fanboys are spinning this.

    Besides, doesn't North Korea do this sort of thing every so often to extract some relaxation of sanctions or receive more aid for their starving nation. The difference this time is to Trump's military hammers (advisers) everything looks like a nail. Skip diplomacy and move right to dropping bombs.

    If the US military strikes North Korea, then North Korea will strike either Japan or South Korea or both. On top of that, will China just sit idly by and do nothing?

    I don't know if the country can take 4 more years of this. And God helps us if Trump gets re-elected.
