After last week’s latest ICBM test launch from North Korea which boasted a range reportedly long enough to reach DC, a warning is coming from a not-so-subtle voice.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, as a former Air Force Colonel, is considered among the foremost authorities in Congress on military matters, perhaps second only to John McCain.
Graham issued his warning to families of military service personnel currently stationed in South Korea to ‘get the heck out of Dodge’, so to speak.
With diplomatic remedies falling far short of a resolution, Kim Jong Un is increasingly leaving few options on the table for the Pentagon to pursue as an alternative to a preemptive military strike.
Should that come to pass, the proximity of Seoul, South Korea, to the many likely targets in the north could mean lots of collateral damage as Kim’s military would almost certainly respond with attacks on US allies. This may not end well, folks.

Families of US military should leave South Korea because war between America and Pyongyang is “getting close”, according to a senior US Senator and ex-Air Force Colonel.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has warned that the rising tensions between the the US and Kim Jong-un’s corrupt regime means preparations for war need to be taken.
The member of the Senate Armed Services Committee warned the US was “running out of time” to prepare itself for war when speaking on CBS yesterday.
He said: “I want the Pentagon to stop sending dependents and I think it’s now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea.
“We’re getting close to a military conflict because North Korea is marching toward marrying up the technology of an ICBM with a nuclear weapon on top that can not only get to America, but deliver the weapon.
“We’re running out of time.”
Fears of war between the two countries hit a new high last week after the rogue state announced they had successfully tested a missile capable of targeting any part of the US equipped with a nuclear weapon.
The launch ended over 60 days of silence from North Korea’s missile programme after regular missile tests paused in September.
