North Korea’s days are numbered. President Trump invited the entire U.S. Senate — all 100 senators — to the White House today for a briefing on North Korea.
In an unprecedented move, the president ordered all 100 senators to board buses headed to the White House today to discuss military action against North Korea.
The meeting comes a few days after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un threatened to destroy aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson last week.
According to the US News & World Report, it is highly unusual for the White House to summon all 100 members of the Senate at the same time.
So what does it all mean? It probably means war with North Korea is imminent.
Kim is not going to stop threatening the U.S. with nuclear war, and the United States can not continue to allow a tiny country to push us around.
It’s better that every senator hear what Trump has to say so they can’t complain later that they weren’t in on the decision to go to war.
But it isn’t World War 3, according to retired General Jack Keane.
“The reality is Kim Jong Un is not going to attack our ships. If he does that, his regime gets destroyed,” said Gen. Keane in an appearance on Fox News on Monday.
“The United States is not going to attack North Korea,” he insisted, “unless… they have absolutely nuclearized ballistics missiles and are prepared to launch them. But that would mean war on the peninsula of Korea.”
The briefing will take place at 3 p.m. East Coast time and 12 noon West Coast time.
