Chris “Badger” Thomas RIGHT WING TRIBUNE

North Korea remains a “significant” threat more than three months after the Singapore summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, Trump’s nominee to be the next American commander for U.S. and allied forces in South Korea told lawmakers Tuesday, FOX NEWS reports.

“There still remains a significant conventional and strategic (nuclear) capability on behalf of [North Korea],” Army. Gen. Robert B. Abrams told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“The North Koreans view their capability as leverage, and I don’t think that they want to give it up easily,We’re certainly in a better place than we were in 2017 because of the dialogue we’ve established between our two leaders.” ~ CIA Director Gina Haspel

“I think the temporary suspension of exercises that were previously scheduled for August and September were a prudent risk based on the opportunity to open up additional diplomatic efforts and negotiation between the United States and the DPRK. Going forward we know inherently by not conducting training and exercises that there will be a degradation of readiness and capability and interoperability of the combined forces.

Pyongyang continues to pose a significant military threat — with both nuclear and conventional capabilities — and “America must remain clear-eyed about the situation on the ground.”Army. Gen. Robert B. Abrams

Senators on Tuesday were getting debriefed from Abrams about North Korea as well as asking questions, including how difficult it would be to evacuate civilians from the peninsula in the event of an attack. Abrams agreed it would be a “wicked problem,” but said there are plans in place and they are rehearsed twice a year.

The Senate spent some significant time discussing with General Abrams on U.S. troops stationed in South Korea.  They discussed whether or not soldiers should have their families on base with them or not during the current tensions with North Korea.

Abrams said all options should be considered, but he would want to make his own risk assessment.
