US Military for Restrain

As Trump and North Korea trade threats, the Pentagon’s top general calls for restraint

The U.S. military’s top general told lawmakers Tuesday that diplomacy continues to lead all efforts to compel Kim Jong Un to abandon his nuclear ambitions, and that despite the North Korean leader’s escalating threat to attack the United States, there is no indication Pyongyang has mobilized the forces to do so.

Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. assured Congress that his work on North Korea, including expanded communication with his Chinese counterparts, aligns first with that of the State Department and United Nations.
