via US closer than ever to ‘nuclear war with North Korea,’ Mullen says | Fox News

Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen on Sunday gave a dire predication about U.S.-North Korea relations, suggesting the countries are closer than ever to a nuclear war with no diplomatic solution.

“We’re actually closer, in my view, to a nuclear war with North Korea and in that region than we’ve ever been,” Mullen, a retired Navy admiral, told ABC News’ “This Week.” “I don’t see the opportunities to solve this diplomatically at this particular point.”

Relations between the countries certainly have gotten worse — even threatening — in recent months, analysts have pointed out, as President Trump and world leaders call for North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un to end his pursuit and testing of a nuclear warhead and inter-continental missiles on which to launch the weapon.
