A Marine Corps commandant on Thursday warned U.S. troops stationed in Norway to be prepared for a coming war.
“I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming,” Gen. Robert Neller told them. “You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”
"Just remember why you're here," Green said. "They're watching. Just like you watch them, they watch you. We've got 300 Marines up here; we could go from 300 to 3,000 overnight. We could raise the bar."
US defence secretary Jim Mattis has given a stark warning about the threat of confrontation with North Korea.
"Storm clouds are gathering" over the Korean Peninsula, he said as diplomats try to resolve the nuclear standoff.
Mr Mattis told soldiers that the US military must do its part by being ready for war.
According to military sources who spoke to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, hundreds of U.S. and South Korean soldiers conducted an exercise dubbed “Warrior Strike,” preparing them to “infiltrate North Korea and remove weapons of mass destruction in case of conflict.”
“On December 15, 2017, Bravo Company, 1-5 CAV converged on a subterranean tunnel for training,” a description of the post reads. “Check out these photos and stay tuned for more coverage of BlackJack soldiers in action.”
The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington DC have warned a test is likely to take place soon.
The group said since 2012 North Korea has carried out “high missile test activity” in December, increasing fears of another missile strike this year.
Ahead of North Korea’s founding anniversary, Harry Kazianis of the Centre for the National Interest think tank: “I think another ICBM test to be honest with you could come on September 9. The North Koreans love to put on a big show for their big national holiday.”
He said North Korea was attracted by the attention an attack on such a symbolic occasion would gain - and a Christmas strike would get the biggest reaction of all.

War is the only answer. Who would have predicted that would be the generals solution.
Everyone loves war. The profit margins are much bigger than selling bubble gum to workers making poverty wages!

There's big money in war, which is why I believe the militay industrial complex is prepared for war...NOT peaceful, diplomatic solutions.

I hope not for our troops sake.
Once the air strikes stop and the ground invasion starts we wi lose10s of thousands of troops.
Do these idiots not learn from their mistakes. You will never beat an enemy at home. They know all the nooks and crannies.
I imagine every American would fight of the U.S. was invaded. North Koreans are not that different to us.

I don't really see the need to directly attack the food with weapons. I cannot advocate that upon any society, no matter how #ty their leaders.
They just lost most of their oil, it won't be long now. Just be patient, 2018 is the year.
