Retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor Ralph Peters said the truth about what needs to be done to North Korea before it’s too late.
“Better a million dead North Koreans than a thousand dead Americans. The fundamental reason our government exists is to protect our people and our territory. Everything else is a grace note. And the words we never should hear in regard to North Korea’s nuclear threats are ‘We should’ve done something.’” wrote Ralph Peters in an op-ed for the New York Post.
“Instead, we should do something. Pyongyang’s Sunday test of a hydrogen bomb of devastating power begs for decisive action. Must we wait until Americans die?” he wrote.
“We do not want war. That much could not be more obvious. But we cannot sacrifice American lives to shield the consciences of intellectual elites who, from protected positions of immense privilege, insist that all human life is precious, not just our “deplorable” American lives,” he wrote. Do you think he is right? Or is he going too far? Check out the full post here.
