Top Democratic Senator Issues A Warning About War With N. Korea That Every America Should Read. [View all]

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD), the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, explained to the American people that contrary to Trump's bluster, war with North Korea would not be quick or glorious.

*Unlike Trump, Sen. Cardin knows what he is talking about. A war with North Korea would be a slog that could go on for months at a minimum and drain US military resources around the world. The US military, South Korean military, and civilian casualties would be massive. It is estimated by military experts that an invasion of North Korea would require a huge ground force commitment. War with North Korea would make Iraq and Afghanistan look like childís play.

The problem with trying to use surgical strikes is that the US doesnít know where all of North Koreaís nuclear facilities are. There is no easy out once America decides to engage militarily on the Korean Peninsula.

Trump may have been talking tough to make himself feel like a big man, but this isnít The Apprentice. The stakes are nothing less than a total war the likes of which the United States hasnít seen since Vietnam.'
