U.S. General Confirms: Special Operations Teams Will Be Sent To Take Out North Korean Nuke Sites

By Mac Slavo

With China issuing a final warning to North Korea earlier today, and U.S. President Donald Trump keeping all options on the table as he prepares a response to continued North Korean military posturing and rhetoric, Army General Raymond A. Thomas confirmed in sworn testimony to a Congressional subcommittee that special operations teams will be utilized as part of any conflict with the rogue state and would likely be sent in to secure and/or destroy North Korean nuclear facilities in the event of war:

Army Gen. Raymond A. Thomas stated in testimony to a House subcommittee that Army, Navy, and Air Force commandos are based both permanently and in rotations on the Korean peninsula in case conflict breaks out.

The special operations training and preparation is a warfighting priority, Thomas said in prepared testimony. There are currently around 8,000 special operations troops deployed in more than 80 countries.

“We are actively pursuing a training path to ensure readiness for the entire range of contingency operations in which [special operations forces], to include our exquisite [countering weapons of mass destruction] capabilities, may play a critical role,” he told the subcommittee on emerging threats.

“We are looking comprehensively at our force structure and capabilities on the peninsula and across the region to maximize our support to U.S. [Pacific Command] and [U.S. Forces Korea]. This is my warfighting priority for planning and support.”

Special forces troops would be responsible for locating and destroying North Korean nuclear weapons and missile delivery systems, such as mobile missiles. They also would seek to prevent the movement of the weapons out of the country during a conflict.



Special operations missions are said by military experts to include intelligence gathering on the location of nuclear and chemical weapons sites for targeting by bombers. They also are likely to include direct action assaults on facilities to sabotage the weapons, or to prevent the weapons from being stolen, or set off at the sites by the North Koreans.

In earlier reports it was noted that SEALs and other commandos could be used in a first strike to decapitate North Korean leadership at the onset of any military engagement.

The President deployed high-altitude surveillance drones over North Korea earlier this week in a bid to gather intelligence about the secretive country’s nuclear and military capabilities ahead of any military action.

The latest moves, coupled with recent mobilizations of Chinese, Russian and U.S. military assets suggests previous policies of patient diplomacy under President Obama and President Bush have been thrown out the window.

The world appears to be moving towards war at a feverish pace.

    Yep, and you always tell them in advance, right?

  2. Research the Korean War and Vietnam War and understand what Korean soldiers do to captured enemy combatants. U.S. military personnel killed themselves rather than be captured during the Korean War.

    • The Korean War (1950-1953)

      The crimes committed by the US against
      the people of Korea in the course of the Korean War but also in its
      aftermath are unprecedented in modern history.

  3. Terrorism only allowed terrorists. USrael!

  4. Of course the world is moving toward war at a feverish pace. The military industrial complex MUST be fed at all times, so they can maintain their 1% life style while all our young people get sent home in body bags. But, first they must use the lying MSM and criminal politicians to convince us of imminent danger if we don’t act NOW and that through war we will achieve peace. And as the sheep stare at their I-phones, the brainwashing continues…..

    • So you don’t believe Kim Jong Un’s threats? Were talking about a crazy man here, almost having the capability to deliver nuclear weapons here in the continental USA. N/K has shown time after time appeasement doesn’t work.

      • Excuse me, how can a little country like North Korea be a threat to the USA; please explain. It’s ridiculous. The US is running out of little countries to overrun and destroy.

        • When they get deliverable nuclear weapons able to reach the USA then they become a big threat. Guess you haven’t been paying attention.

            And why would any leader of a country that just managed to get a couple of nukes commit suicide, national and personal, by nuking the US. That is ridiculous, a fairy tale to justify illegal and aggressive action by the US itself. I don’t get it how people buy into these kind of made up threats, especially after all the previous cases.

    • Smarty et al., just DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN or YOURSELF TO ANY WAR!!!! Dare to REFUSE TO KILL FOR OTHERS, WHO CASH ON THE WEAPONS, Your child might be dying from. Become pacifist, DO NO HARM, have the COURAGE to SAY ‘NO’ TO BECOME A SERIAL KILLER, with no peace for the rest of your live. Make ‘making a war’ the number 1 enemy of your actions, in particular when you look at whom the presidents and their ‘friends’ want to shoot at. There is NO RIGHT TO KILL FOR ANYONE, FOR ANY REASON OR FOR NO REASON. Humans got hearts and brains, which can decide for better good of everyone.
      Btw. there is no ‘destroying nuclear weapons’, without a catastrophe.

  5. And what happens if and when these guys are captured?

    The only rogue nation involved in this problem is the US, which is also the only nation to have ever used nuclear weapons on civilians of another nation. The US has also embraced a policy of nuclear preemptive strikes against other nations, whether or not such nations hold nuclear weapons.

  7. The goat worshipers want their Zentral bank.
