The Top U.S. Naval officer in charge of military operations in the Pacific region told lawmakers Thursday that the threat from North Korea is the worst he’s seen.

Commander of U.S. Pacific Command Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr. says that it’s only a matter of time before Kim Jong Un has the capability of launching a nuclear warhead toward the United States.

“The crisis on the Korean peninsula is real—the worst I’ve seen,” he said.

His brutal assessment came in response to a question from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) who compared the tensions with North Korea to the Cuban Missile Crisis when he spoke to the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Harris declined to compare the current situation to that of the Cuban Missile Crisis decades ago, but said he has “no doubt” the country intends to develop nuclear missiles that could be aimed toward South Korea and the U.S., Fox News reports.

“There is some doubt within the intelligence community whether Kim Jong Un has that capability today or whether he will soon, but I have to assume he has it, the capability is real, and that he’s moving towards it,” he said.

“We are faced with a threat and a leader who is intent on a achieving his goal of a nuclear capability against the United States,” Harris said.

Harris said that North Korea remains “the most immediate threat” to U.S. security, as they “vigorously” pursue strikes and launches intended to target Australia, South Korea, and the U.S.

“Kim Jong Un is making progress and all nations need to take this seriously because their missiles point in all directions,” Harris said. “If left unchecked, they will match the capability of his hostile rhetoric.”

Harris stressed the importance of what he called a ‘”shift” in Kim Jong Un’s rhetoric, after threatening nations like Australia and the U.S. by name this week.

“His rhetoric is going in one direction and his capabilities are approaching the lines of his rhetoric,” Harris said. “Where those lines cross, I believe we are at an inflection point and we wake up to a new world.”

Harris also voiced confidence in President Trump and Defense Secretary Mattis noting that they have made it quite clear that “all options are on the table.”

“We want to bring Kim Jong Un to his senses, not to his knees,” Harris said, adding, “I have the forces in place to fight tonight if necessary.”

Harris also called for Congress to pass a budget that would provide the DoD (Department of Defense) with more resources, saying that additional materials are needed “in the long-run.”

The U.S. is installing the THAAD anti-ballistic missile system in South Korea and told the committee that it would be operational in “a couple of days.”

“THAAD allows us intercept capability to shoot down, at the high altitude level, ballistic missiles that go from North Korea to South Korea,” Harris said. “THAAD is a system that would give an umbrella to protect South Korea.”

Harris also touched on China’s role in the North Korean crisis and said that he remains “cautiously optimistic, but hopeful.”

“We’re seeing more activity—positive activity—from China in this case than we’ve seen in a long time,” Harris said.

Crazy times folks.
