Grim cost predicted in effort to destroy North Korea's nukes

Responding to a formal request by two US House members for projections relating to "expected casualty assessments in a conflict with North Korea", the Pentagon stated in a letter that the only method to accomplish disarmament "with complete certainty" would be through a ground invasion, confirming fears that casualties - both military and civilian - would be very high, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Potential casualties from a conflict depended heavily on the intensity of any attack on South Korea's capital, Seoul, which lies just 35 miles (56 km) from the border, as well as how much advance warning the United States and its allies had, he said.

The U.S. military says when it comes to North Korea, it "fully supports" diplomacy.

"The President needs to stop making provocative statements that hinder diplomatic options and put American troops further at risk", Mr Lieu's joint statement said.

North Korea has called Thae "human scum" and accused him of embezzling government money and committing other crimes. The situation worsened when Trump, during his first address to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), vowed to annihilate North Korea if it posed any threat to the U.S. and its allies, and called the Pyongyang leader "rocket man" on a suicide mission.

Goff threw three touchdowns in the first half, finishing with 311 yards passing in arguably his best game as a pro. Higbee, not normally used as a receiver, opened the scoring with an 8-yard touchdown grab 4:05 into the contest.

'No dictator, no regime, no nation should ever underestimate American resolve, ' Trump told hundreds of cheering USA and Japanese troops in camouflage uniforms gathered at Yokota Air Base, just west of Tokyo, soon after he arrived. "We will never yield, never waver and never falter in defense of our people, our freedom, and our great American flag".

The claim was made in September by a retired Air Force general who said the figure was estimated based on a conventional war scenario and did not include potential use of nuclear weapons. "They are not only threatening in words, but they are switching over into action to ignite another Korean War", they said, referring to US rhetoric.

Lieu told President Donald Trump's news with a tweet: "Dear Trump", he wrote.

In an unusually frank assessment of risk, the Pentagon has noted that the forcible removal of nuclear weapons from North Korea would require a bloody and protracted ground war, a move lawmakers acknowledge would result in a death toll in the hundreds of thousands, possibly millions, on the Korean Peninsula and surrounding regions.

Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth of IL wrote to Trump Wednesday calling for him to provide the American public with declassified estimates of potential casualties, costs and outcomes from a limited or full-scale war with North Korea.
