Rep. Duncan Hunter said that the United States needs to launch a preemptive strike against North Korea in order to prevent the rogue nation from harming the U.S. first.
“You could assume, right now, that we have a nuclear missile aimed at the United States, and here in San Diego. Why would they not aim here, at Hawaii, Guam, our major naval bases?” Hunter, an Alpine Republican, said during an appearance on a KUSI television Thursday.
“The question is, do you wait for one of those? Or, two? Do you preemptively strike them? And that’s what the president has to wrestle with. I would preemptively strike them. You could call it declaring war, call it whatever you want,” Hunter continued.
Hunter, a member of a House Armed Services Committee and the subcommittee with jurisdiction over the United States’ nuclear arsenal, did not say if the military should strike North Korea with conventional or nuclear weapons.
Hunter or his spokesman could not be reached for further comment Thursday night.
His comments come after President Donald Trump, in his first address to the United Nations General Assembly, said that the U.S. is prepared to attack North Korea.
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said.
Hunter called the president’s remarks “great” and not “wishy-washy.” He added that North Korea should join the UN in order to bring them into dialogue with stable countries. He also said that would expose North Korea officials to New York City, the home of the UN's headquarters, and show them what the prosperity they could achieve with reforms.
The hundreds of thousands, possibly millions dead from this aren't the issue. The issue is Duncan Hunter has a microscopic penis and a brain to go along with it, and he's going to help get a ridiculously high number of people killed in very short order.
Understand that if the US attacks Pyongyang, Seoul becomes a parking lot in 48 hours, and whether or not that parking lot is created just from the saturation of the air with conventional high-explosive artillery fire or the blackened glass of a nuclear blast or three (or both, yay!) is really the only question.
After that, well, things get kinda bad from there.
Mueller needs to move fast or there may not be much of the place left to defend the Constitution for.
