North Points /

PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST CONTINUE REMINDING OUR CITIZENS, ALLIES & ADVERSARIES THAT NORTH KOREA NUKE WEAPONS & ICBMS ARE AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT - CLEAR & PRESENT DANGER - TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THE U.N. RESOLUTION PASSED ON 16TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9-11-01 IS PROBABLY BEST WE CD HOPE FOR GIVEN VETO THREATS FM MOSCOW & BEIJING.

BUT: THE "ASSET FREEZES" ARE WHOLLY INADEQUATE. NONE OF THE DPRK CLOWNS NAMED HAS A CHECKING ACCOUNT @ WELLS FARGO OR BOA.

BANNING $725M IN NO-KO TEXTILE SALES IS A DROP IN THE BUCKET. NUKE/ICBM R&D & DEPLOYMENT COSTS BILLIONS. IF THE U.N. WANTS TO SHUT OFF FUNDING FOR NO-KO NUKES & ICBMs - CALL THE SUPREME LEADER AYATOLLAH KHAMEINI IN TEHRAN. THE IRANIANS ARE JOINED AT THE HIP W/ THE DPRK IN NUKE-ICBM ACQUISITION.

THE ONLY REAL WAY TO PRESSURE THE CHUBBY DWARF IN PYONGYANG IS TO CONVINCE PRES XI & HIS POLITBURO IN BEIJING THAT THE U.S. IS DEADLY SERIOUS ABT OUR LAST OPTION - MILITARY ACTION.

THAT'S GOING TO TAKE MORE THAN WORDS - IT'S GOING TO TAKE ACTION.

WHAT POTUS CAN ORDER RIGHT NOW TO SEND A CLEAR SIGNALTO BEIJING WE'RE DEADLY SERIOUS:
1. DELIVER BIO & CHEM PROTECTION EQUIPMENT TO SOUTH KOREA (ROK)
2. ASK ISRAEL TO PROVIDE IRON DOME, ARROW, IRON BEAM & DAVID'S SLING SYSTEMS TO ROK TO DEAL W/ NO-KO ARTY ON DMZ & PROTECT SEOUL.

3. RETURN THE TAC NUKES TO ROK WE WITHDREW IN THE 1990s.

4. DEPLOY ANOTHER CARRIER STRIKE GROUP TO REGION & MORE LONG-RANGE STRIKE A/C & AIR-TO-AIR TANKERS TO GUAM & OKINAWA.

5. DEPLOY SAR ASSETS TO ROK [ASK XI IF WE CAN BASE SOME SAR ASSETS IN SOUTH CHINA TO RECOVER DOWNED U.S. AIR CREWS. UNLKELY HE WILL AGREE BUT IT MAY WAKE UP POLITBURO IN BEIJING].

6. DEPLOY USNS MERCY HOSPITAL SHIP FM SAN DIEGO TO PUSAN & USNS COMFORT FM NORFOLK TO JAPAN

7. DEPLOY U.S. NAVY/MARINE MARINE EXPEDITIONARY BRIGADE TO REGION.

8. DEPLOY MORE ISR [SATELLITES/UAVs ] TO UPDATE TGT LISTS.

ALL THESE ARE NECESSARY B4 MILITARY ACTION. TAKING THESE STEPS NOW MAY HELP CONVINCE PRES. XI & PRC POLITBURO THAT THE U.S. IS DEADLY SERIOUS - AND MAY PRECLUDE THE NECESSITY OF USING THE ASSETS.

IF THESE MEASURES DO NOT RESULT IN CHINA STOPPING THE FAT DWARF IN PYONGYANG FROM ACQUIRING MORE NUKES & ICBMs OUR LAST RESORT IS A U.S. MILITARY OPERATION.
 THAT REQUIRES SURFACE & UNDERSEA & AIR LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILES & USAF & USN STRIKE A/C TO:

1. DECAPITATE DPRK LEADERSHIP & TAKE DOWN NO-KO AIR DEFENSES & C3 COMMS W/ CYBER ATKS & "SPECIAL WEAPS" STRIKES. IF KIM SURVIVES HE WILL HAVE TO ISSUE ORDERS W/ CARRIER PIGEONS.

2. TAKE OUT NUKE & ICBM SITES W/ "CONVENTIONAL" WEAPS.

3. TAKE OUT NO-KO ARTILLERY & ROCKETS ON DMZ .

4. ELIMINATE NO-KO NAVAL & CRUISE MISSILE THREAT TO U.S. NAVY & FORCES AT SEA.
IN AN IDEAL WORLD [IT NEVER IS]: DO IT ALL FOUR STEPS AS NEAR AS POSSIBLE SIMULTANEOUSLY TO PRE-EMPT ICBM LAUNCH OR DEVASTATION OF SEOUL.
