Sen. Inhofe Wants Pre-Emptive Strike on North Korea

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said that the United States should be prepared to launch a pre-emptive strike "right now" against North Korea, warning that its "deranged" president Kim Jong Un could attempt a nuclear attack on America. 

“We should be prepared to do it right now,’’ Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show’’ on Wednesday.

“In terms of the capability we have out there with the F-22s and the battleships … a pre-emptive strike from something like that would get their attention.’’

    Can we declare war please? They declared war on us so as least it would be justified. Not that I want it, but at least a strike would be legitimate act of war instead of a world police action.
