Jack Keane on North Korea: ‘If You Want to Prevent War, then Make Sure You’re Fully Prepared for It’

We have the number 1 cyber offensive capability in the world...we should be attacking North Korea’s information systems, command and control, their finance systems and energy infrastructure

RUSH EXCERPT:

KEANE: "Well, I think I know what he means. He’s saying we’re trying to get ready. But I wish we were doing some more things than what we are doing to be frank. I firmly believe that if you want to prevent war, then make sure you are fully prepared for it. What am I talking about? We have the number 1 cyber offensive capability in the world. Nobody is close to us. We should be attacking north Korea’s information systems, command and control, their finance systems and energy infrastructure. We should be taking that country down electronically. Second, we should put in place a naval blockade of North Korea to cut off the back door that we know exists where he’s getting fuel and other supplies. The third thing is, we should start to bring our forces in to the theater. If we’re saying we’re going to go to war to prevent him from having a nuclearized icbm, we have to show him some of the capability. We should not just be talking about it. Flying in a bomber for two or three days is not impressing anybody. Let’s put in place the resources that we need to thicken the defense in South Korea and load up the bases with the capabilities that we need. Stop sending military families to South Korea. That doesn’t make any sense to me whatsoever. It should be what we call an unaccompanied tour. Troops only."
