Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis urged the Army Monday to be prepared in case diplomatic relations with North Korea break down.
“It is right now a diplomatically, economic-sanctions-buttressed effort to try and turn North Korea off of this path,” Mattis saidduring his keynote speech at the annual AUSA conference in Washington, D.C. “What does the future hold? Neither you nor I can say.”
President Trump seemed to signal in recent weeks that he’s grown tired of diplomatic efforts to rein in the rogue regime.
“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!” he tweeted earlier this month.
