RED ALERT: Top U.S. Official Just Issued GRAVE Warning To Americans After N. Korea’s Latest Move



Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan told reporters on Tuesday that while the State Department remained focused on quelling tensions with North Korea through diplomatic channels, that the nation and world must remain prepared for the possibility that those efforts will fail.

“We must, however, with our allies in Japan and South Korea and elsewhere, be prepared for the worst should diplomacy fail,” Sullivan said, according to the Associated Press.

The comments come fresh off a report claiming a North Korean official said that the country is no longer interested in diplomacy until it develops the capabilities to build a long-range (ICBM) capable of hitting the East coast of the United States.


“Before we can engage in diplomacy with the Trump administration, we want to send a clear message that North Korea has a reliable defensive and offensive capability to counter any aggression from the United States,” the North Korean official reported.

Sullivan’s remarks came after a meeting with his Japanese counterpart, Shinsuke Sugiyama, where they two discussed rising tensions in the region. They are scheduled to travel to South Korea to continue those discussions and the U.S. and South Korea hold joint naval drills this week.

North Korea escalated its rhetoric against the United States and the world on Monday, telling the United Nations member states in a statement to not join any U.S. military efforts against North Korea if they wish to remain safe from violent retaliation.


Over the weekend, Secretary of State John Tillerson said that he intends to continue diplomatic efforts with North Korea until “the first bomb drops.”

North Korea has “successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles”–that will go down in history. We can no longer deny North Korea has become a full-fledged nuclear power.

They say failure has a thousand fathers, so when it comes to North Korea’s nuclear achievements we can only blame administration after administration—Democrats and Republicans alike—who decided the North Korean threat was never big enough, or too far away to demand that much of our attention or worry.

We are paying for that attitude today. And future generations will as well.

“North Korea is a nuclear power,” said Harry Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest. “There is no more time to stick our heads in the sand and think we have months or years to confront this challenge.”

A top North Korean diplomat insisted Friday that Kim Jong Un’s regime viewed its nuclear and defense programs as a “matter of life and death” and that the authoritarian regime had no plans to meet with United States officials for talks.

The director-general of North Korea’s foreign ministry North American department, Choe Son Hui, said the U.S. would “have to put up” with the North being a nuclear power.

“This is a matter of life and death for us,” Choe told a group at a nonproliferation conference in Moscow, according to Reuters. “The current situation deepens our understanding that we need nuclear weapons to repel a potential attack.”

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee on October 3 that the president had told Tillerson and him to pursue diplomatic efforts, and that the combination of Trump’s strong words and diplomacy were part of a “dynamic balance” to find a solution.

Mattis also followed up by stating the U.S. needed to “ensure we have military options.”
