Pentagon Should Move US Military Families From S. Korea Ahead Of Possible War – Sen. Graham
The following is an excerpt from rt.com | December 3, 2017 |
The Pentagon should begin moving spouses and children of active US military service members out of South Korea, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said, because the US is "getting close to military conflict" with Pyongyang.
“It’s crazy to send spouses and children to South Korea, given the provocation of North Korea,” Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on the CBS program “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “So, I want them [the Pentagon] to stop sending dependents and I think it’s now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea."
"We're getting close to a military conflict because North Korea is marching toward marrying up the technology of an ICBM with a nuclear weapon on top that can not only get to America, but deliver the weapon. We’re running out of time,” Graham said, referencing North Korea's test of a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Wednesday. Pyongyang says the test was of a Hwasong-15 ICBM, which is capable of hitting the US mainland.
