Lindsey Graham: Preemptive Strike On N. Korea

Lindsey Graham: Preemptive Strike On N. Korea: 'Terrible' But Would 'Not Hit America'

Lindsey Graham did an interview with Savannah Guthrie this morning, where he stretched his war muscles with a theory on North Korea.

Guthrie pointed out that a preemptive strike would be automatic war on the Korean peninsula.

"Yes, it would be terrible, but the war would be over there, it wouldn't be here," Graham replied.

"It would be bad for the Korean peninsula, it would be bad for China, it would be bad for Japan, it would be bad for South Korea, it would be the end of North Korea but what it would not do is hit America," he concluded.

2. Are they (gop) really so short-sighted? We (USA) advocated for and helped create a global community

anyone believing something over there will not affect us here is in denial, IMHO.

3. You should change the headline of your OP to the real headline in the article

Unless your intention is to give people heart attacks.

Also, Lindsey Graham is a selfish despicable monster for saying that.

4. Graham is one sick individual

China world's largest economy

Japan 3rd largest economy

S. Korea 11th largest economy

We throw these 3 into chaos and it won't hit the US?

To say that a conflict where millions possibly die is OK... pretty sick.

5. Do these fools ever read history?

Let's see hmmmm

Gen Robt E Lee thought a battle in Gettysburg PA would save the South and end the civil war.
Hitler thought that invading Russia would destroy communism and keep the Russians from invading Germany.
Napolean thought invading Russia would complete the unification of his European empire.
Imperial Japan thought that attacking Pearl Harbor would keep the US from invading Japan.
Tsar Nicholas of Russia thought that invading Austria would be a war that would last about 1 month.

Elizabeth I of England, to her credit, did her best to keep England out of wars, because she thought the outcomes were uncertain.

6. The most depressing thing is how little press

this comment has gotten. A highly placed U.S. Senator of the controlling party has devalued the lives of millions to being "them".

It should be the lead of every news broadcast.

10. The 30,000 US troops in S. Korea, 40,000 in Japan

would be the first hit. Just cannon fodder to Graham. I guess they don't count.

11. It may not "hit America", but how many Americans would die?

Or how many of our allies in South Korea would die? There are a lot of people who live in Seoul, including a lot of Americans, and Seoul is very close to North Korea. And how many Americans would die in the war that would follow?

Lindsey, you are an a$$
