In recent weeks, North Korea’s ruthlessness has hit very close to home. The death of Otto Warmbier has shocked and saddened our country. Meanwhile, North Korea’s brutal dictator continues to develop its nuclear weapons capability.
All of our instincts may point toward retribution. But war with North Korea would be devastating and could lead to a nuclear catastrophe — while also threatening our own security.Recently, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said to Congress that, “If this goes to a military solution, it’s going to be tragic on an unbelievable scale.”
Don’t let bluster win! Support diplomacy with North Korea.
Years of hawkish approaches to North Korea have failed: without engagement, North Korea continues to grow and improve its nuclear arsenal. Trump’s posturing only encourages more North Korean ballistic missile and nuclear weapons tests. To truly reduce the North Korean nuclear threat, world leaders must open the door to communication. There is no military solution for North Korea. Diplomacy is the only way to roll back North Korea’s nuclear option.
