Kim Jong Un is forcing the US to consider more aggressive responses to North Korea, retired Gen. Wesley Clark says

The latest actions by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are forcing the U.S. and its allies to consider a more combative strategy, retired Gen. Wesley Clark said Wednesday on CNBC, including going after test-launch pads and naval assets.

“We’re walking up to that and actually Kim is forcing us to walk up to considerations of these options,” said Clark, former NATO supreme allied commander.

“We have to consider what we can do in the non-lethal category as well,” he said in an interview on “Squawk Box.”

“There’s been a lot of talk about cyber. … We know we can shut down a lot of the North Korea communications. We can shut down electric power. We can shut down their early warning defense networks.”
