Krauthammer: If We’re Not Prepared to Arm S. Korea and Japan with Nukes, N. Korea will Be Nuclear

‘If we are not prepared to take the steps, nothing will happen and North Korea will become a nuclear state’

RUSH EXCERPT: 
KRAUTHAMMER: "All of this stuff is smoke and mirrors, great speech by Nikki Haley. It will have zero effect. We have two choices. We either have to go to war or acquiesced. There are two things we can do in the interim that would be strategically risky but would have an effect. One would be to get the south Koreans to invite us to return the tactical nuclear weapons that we stationed there until 1991. That would get the attention of Pyongyang and beijing. Lastly, this is a last resort. You get the Japanese to announce they are going to go nuclear. That will get the immediate attention of the Chinese who will have to decide which do they prefer? A divided Korean peninsula with a client state in the north or a nuclear Japan. If we are not prepared to take the steps, nothing will happen and North Korea will become a nuclear state."
