War & Rumors of War

Mike Pence: U.S. would defeat North Korea attacks against Japan -
UPI reports: "U.S. Vice President Mike Pence vowed to strike back in the event of a North Korea attack against Japan. Speaking on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan at the naval base in Yokosuka, Pence said Wednesday any military provocation would be met with an 'effective American response,' The Japan Times reported. 'We will defeat any attack, and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response,' Pence said. The vice president also said North Korea is the most dangerous threat in the Asia-Pacific region and that the era of strategic patience was over, Kyodo news agency reported."

Comment: I hope the bluster works, the alternative is a truly terrible conflict.
