The Only Way to Disarm North Korea's Nuclear Program

The Trump Administration is considering using military force to disarm the country's nuclear weapons. Sanctions and diplomatic talks have already failed, leaving only the military option untried. The Pentagon should study the possibility of a mixed operation: A conventional attack across the border and the airdrop of special forces near North Korean nuclear sites simultaneously. The special forces should try to sabotage such sites and then retreat to areas where they can either quickly link up with advancing US forces or retreat to the nearest beaches and be evacuated using submarines. Such a strategy is obviously highly risky and will entail enormous sacrifices. At the same time, it may also disarm the country before they launch their nuclear weapons.
