Washington, DC. The head National Security adviser to US President Donald Trump has now said Americans should prepare for a nuclear war with North Korea, in open remarks Sunday on US television.

American Lieutenant General HR McMaster called on other world powers to prevent the rebellious regime from developing a nuclear arsenal, saying the state was acting in “open defiance of the international community.” America’s National Security Adviser has said America should be “prepared” to take military action against North Korea.

McMasters added the Trump administration would prefer to “work with others” to resolve the issue “short of military action”, he said the US must be prepared for its armed forces to intervene, but did not expand on why the US should provoke a nuclear war in the Korean penininsular area.

Continuing the American logic he explained who the stakeholders were in the conflict,“North Korea poses a grave threat to the United States, our great allies in the region, South Korea and Japan but also to China and others. And so it’s important, I think, for all of us to confront this regime,” he said.

“This regime that is pursuing the weaponization of a missile with a nuclear weapon. And so this is something that we know we cannot tolerate … The President has made clear that he is going to resolve this issue one way or another, it may mean ratcheting up those sanctions even further and it also means being prepared for military operations if necessary.”

For his part, US President Donald Trump refused to say whether this meant military action, saying: “I don’t know, I mean, we’ll see. We shouldn’t be announcing all our moves. It is a chess game. I just don’t want people to know what my thinking is.” leaving many to wonder if keeping a person with nuclear weapons off balance and guessing is a valid “strategy.”
