“There’s a 70 percent chance the Trump administration will use the military option against North Korea if Pyongyang conducts another nuclear test, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
“I don’t know how to say it any more direct: If nothing changes, Trump’s gonna have to use the military option, because time is running out,” Graham told the Atlantic in an interview published Thursday.”
I think his odds for war are a bit high and we’ve still not ruled out China stepping up. China could declare a trade embargo, but the question is what will it cost us? I’m not sure, but I’ll guess a lot less than war with Korea. Right now nobody should be anxious to use the military option, because South Korea would bare the brunt of whatever NK could throw at us.
What are the odds that China will join the blockade if they test another missile? Better than our next option, that’s for sure.
