Report: Military 'Preparations Underway' Against NKorea

Image: Report: Military 'Preparations Underway' Against NKorea

Trump administration officials are considering military action as part of various options in response to North Korea's increased nuclear efforts and missile programs, a top U.S. official said Wednesday.

"What you've seen is a really integrated effort to prioritize diplomatic and informational aspects of national power," the official told Roll Call."But also what you will see soon is using the economic dimension of national power, as well as the military preparations that are underway."

But when pressed on the feasibility of President Donald Trump electing to use military force against dictator Kim Jong Un, the official said: "I don't think we're going to describe those in any detail."

The president is considering a "broad range of options," the individual told Roll Call. Trump's choices, however, will depend on "how the situation develops in the future."

The report comes after Trump national security officials briefed senators on Pyongyangat a rare session at the White House.

Trump's options also include getting China and other allies to increase pressure on Kim and pushing the United Nations to toughen economic sanctions, the official said.

North Korea test-fires a ballistic missile that breaks up in flight, US officials say

North Korea launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan on Friday, but the missile "broke up in flight" and has been deemed a failure, two U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News. 

The missile has been assessed to be a KN-17, a former Scud missile that officials believe is being tested to one day target ships. It flew roughly 25 miles and was in the air for about 15 minutes, officials tell Fox News. The KN-17 was launched from Pukchang. 

A White House official told Fox News that the U.S. is not suprised by this latest test, nor the fact that it failed. 

The White House is watching the situation closely and consulting with China about Kim's behavior. The U.S. is moving toward pushing for another round of sanctions next week.

The KN-17 is a single-stage, liquid-fueled missile -- not the three-stage, solid-fuel missile that North Korea successfully tested back in February, which caused more concern among Pentagon officials.

North Korea routinely test-fires a variety of ballistic missiles, despite United Nations prohibitions, as part of its push to develop a long-range ballistic missile capable of hitting U.S. shores.

Monday, the Pentagon announced it was conducting a new nuclear posture review, two days after North Korea failed to launch a new type of ballistic missile, which exploded four seconds after launch.
