White House DOJ Should

At a White House press briefing on Friday, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said that, while it would not be the administration's preferred choice, there is a military option to deal with Pyongyang. North Korea has launched dozens of missiles under Kim Jong Un's leadership to accelerate a weapons programme created to give it the ability to target the United States with a powerful, nuclear-tipped missile.

North Korea kicked off September with a test of a suspected staged thermonuclear bomb, specifically a hydrogen bomb, and early Friday, the regime launched a Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile for the second time in a month. "And so for those who have said and have been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option", he said, "[but] it is not what we prefer to do".

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters on Friday that North Korea has been "strangled" by sanctions and that, while it is important to pursue diplomatic options, military options remain squarely on the table if sanctions are not effective.

President Donald Trump will take his "America First" message to the United Nations next week and seek support for tough measures against North Korea despite his skepticism about the value of global groups like the 193-member body.

McMaster said new sanctions on North Korea are just going into effect and need to be given a chance to work.

Having said that, I have no problem kicking it to Gen. Mattis because I think he has plenty of options.
