Military action against North Korea an 'option': Tillerson

Military action against North Korea an 'option': TillersonMilitary action by the United States against nuclear-armed North Korea is an “option on the table” if the threat from the rogue regime escalates, Washington’s top diplomat Rex Tillerson said Friday. Tillerson’s tour comes after a missile launch last week that Pyongyang described as a drill for an attack on US bases in Japan. The US has 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea to defend it from the North, but the capital Seoul is within range of Pyongyang’s artillery and analysts believe any conflict could risk rapid escalation and heavy casualties.
