US military behavior suggests they believe North Korean war will probably happen

Senator Tammy Duckworth said Americans simply are not in touch with just how close we are to war on the Korean peninsula.

Duckworth said Kim Jong-un poses a serious and deadly threat to millions of people on the Korean peninsula, the Pacific theater and in the United States, and the prospect of war is far more dangerous—and far more likely—than many Americans realize.

The Senator said U.S. military seems to be operating with the attitude that a conflict “‘will probably happen, and we better be ready to go.

U.S. military maneuvers over the past several months—including a nuclear-powered submarine heading to South Korea, the movement of three aircraft carriers to the Western Pacific, and the Army testing out “mobilization centers” for deploying troops and training soldiers to fight in tunnels like those beneath North Korea—that inform this worry.
