Amid North Korean Thaw, Talk of War
The game’s afoot. This week North Korea raised hopes of cooling nuclear-armed tensions by agreeing to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics next month in South Korea. But President Donald Trump said there might be a “bloody nose” military strike to keep Pyongyang contained, which experts predict would end with mass casualties on both sides. At the same time, Trump boasted in an interview of a “very good relationship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, suggesting, though not confirming, that he may already have spoken to him.
