Watch Out Kimberly: US Forces Now Positioned to Counter North Korean Nuclear Sites

Kimberly Jong-un better watch out with his pouting, because Trump is no longer playing around.

The commander of Special Operations Command told Congress Tuesday that U.S. special operations forces are set to conduct operations against North Korean.

They’re prepared to combat nuclear, missile, and other weapons of mass destruction sites in any future conflict.

During a testimony given to a House subcommittee Army Gen. Raymond A. Thomas stated that Army, Navy, and Air Force commandos are based on the Korean peninsula; both permanently and in rotations.

According to Free Beacon: The special operations training and preparation is a warfighting priority, Thomas said in prepared testimony. 

“We are actively pursuing a training path to ensure readiness for the entire range of contingency operations in which [special operations forces], to include our exquisite [countering weapons of mass destruction] capabilities, may play a critical role,” he told the subcommittee on emerging threats.

“We are looking comprehensively at our force structure and capabilities on the peninsula and across the region to maximize our support to U.S. [Pacific Command] and [U.S. Forces Korea]. This is my warfighting priority for planning and support.”

Disclosure of the commander’s comments comes as tensions remain high on the peninsula. President Trump has vowed to deal harshly with North Korea should another underground nuclear test be carried out. Test preparations have been identified in recent weeks, U.S. officials have said.

Trump stated on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation’ that, “If he does a nuclear test, I will not be happy.” When asked if his unhappiness would mean US military response, the president said: “I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see.”

President Donald Trump is pleased to see China pressuring North Korea, however if Kim Jong-un does not cooperate and fires another ‘test launch’ it could mean war.

Special forces troops would be responsible for locating and destroying North Korean nuclear weapons and missile delivery systems, such as mobile missiles. They also would seek to prevent the movement of the weapons out of the country during a conflict.

Special operations missions are said by military experts to include intelligence gathering on the location of nuclear and chemical weapons sites for targeting by bombers. They also are likely to include direct action assaults on facilities to sabotage the weapons, or to prevent the weapons from being stolen, or set off at the sites by the North Koreans.

A defense official said U.S. commandos in the past have trained for covert operations against several types of nuclear facilities, including reactors and research centers. Scale models of some North Korean weapons facilities have been built in the United States for practice operations by commandos.

If tensions are this high to where we have special forces training to take out North Korea’s nuclear facilities, things are not looking good.

It will take one of these world leaders to simmer down to stop this conflict.

However, do we really want Kim Jong-un to remain in power?

The North Korean dictatorship is an absolute monster.
