Trump Will Strike North Korea Before Kim Jong-Un Has Chance
Former military chief says president will act if US at risk
President Donald Trump may launch a strike against North Korea if he perceives Americans are "at risk" from an attack from Kim Jong-un according to a retired military chief.
General Jack Keane, who was selected by Trump as US Defence Secretary, has publically supported Trump for his “strike-first” military strategy against the hermit kingdom.
The retired military chief also added that Trump would not accept a nuclear launch from Kim Jong-un despite the Trump administration seeing war as “undesirable”.

General Keane said: “We’re rapidly and dangerously heading towards the reality that the military option is the only one left when it comes to getting North Korea to denuclearise and not weaponised [intercontinental ballistic missiles].
“But the Trump administration cannot accept a nuclear launch.
“We cannot rely on our missile-defence system to defeat it and expose the American people to a nuclear attack.
“Therefore if an ICBM attack was imminent the President would have to conduct a preemptive strike.”
