peninsula on poeth side. battle would be hundreds of thousands and could approach is heavily ause it populated. north korea does respond to economic benefit. the administration had aggressive tact with them that worked. administration took away economic benefit, it fell apart. all north korea wants is to be the rest ade with all of the countries and not be isolated economically. that, you can get a nonaggression fact, that is a ar that can't be fought there is no defense against artillery. 5% of the ornaments on both sides is artillery and bad missile system is worthless against that. brian, on consequences of military action, "u.s.a. today" on this up in the story missile launch noting that

the pressure trump administration has put on china so far? pathetic. pathetic. he said he was going to do, you them as currency soipulators and he backed up fast it wasn't funny. our m not impressed with draft dodger in chief, i'm not.y, i'm i'm service connected disabled navy vet, my son is in, my i can trace my family's military contribution to the civil war. be over there.o north korea has, i believe, the or fifth largest standing army in the world. t would destroy the entire korean peninsula. host: james on the trump the pressure and they are putting on president trump tweeting about the subject morning.nd this 7:21 a.m., trade between china 40% in the rea grew

consequences. hey, you over here in iraq and -- no, we -- le david.ot your paint, earl on the line for those who support military action. ahead. caller: good morning. i was in rs old and the marine corps during the conflict and i don't any of the --a or if theysian people that go with north korea again, like korean during the conflict when i was over there, be real mean, gut they need to get somebody like the oys with the desert storm and
have a three-day war out of it. can't trust them. host: earl, what would that mean allies?south korean are you concerned about what a shooting war would mean for korea? caller: well, i know what it was was over there. korea.th it, emember they were into too. they're over there, they are going to end up into it one way other, if they don't do omething to stop the north koreans, they are going to be into it anyway. would stay out of it. i'm 85 years old japan bombed hen
pearl harbor, i was 10 years old and at that time, there was here on delegation over to bomb pearl harbor. host: as somebody who served over there, has it been worth commitment to the south korea and involvement in peninsula? caller: well, we need to keep commitment commitment, if we can do it hold e we do need a food over there. i don't trust them so well. said, i n't -- like i
don't know what's going to come but it's going to end p in some type of armed conflict anyhow. host: in arkansas. our phone lines, if you believe is the right option, 202-748-8000. military action is the option, 202-748-8001. for the negotiations, 202-748-8002. 202, ther options, 748-8003. "new york oard of times" taking this up this morning. they are pushing for more saying contacts between officials of both countries should continue both seek release of three other americans that are in north korea and build a foundation for future negotiations over the north nuclear and missile rogram for mr. trump and other political leaders negotiating ith north korea is one of the
worst human rights records, threat s have not ended and action against the north would put south americans and risk.can troops at there was a deal in 1994 that froze the north program for decade, no indication that mr. trump has a better editorial what the board writes. oo oory in fort lauderdale, those to support military action. morning, od "washington journal" family, i think we should put the fear of korea and rth strategic bombing. i know for 60 years, have ations and sanctions led up to yesterday's launch of an icbm. now i don't think any country, especially north korea and not russia would do anything about it if we bomb
korea. i think, if you remember back, the gentleman before brought up into storm, when we went jung wenthe father kim into hiding, he was afraid during that period, he is bold boisterous before kuwait, now. what his son is doing jungnt into kuwait and kim receded into the shadows, he action. he would take we should take strategic action, not necessarily on civilian military targets of some kind, i don't think anybody will do anything about it. that is my comment. host: here is the reason for the oncern in the united states on this latest launch. it is the reach of this latest missile, perhaps as much as 4100 iles, putting it within reach
of alaska, parts of canada, as missile was lofted to of about 1700 miles in the air, flew for 37 minutes, traveled 580 miles from its aunch point horizontally, the "washington post" with the graphic showing the potential each of this latest missile being described as intercontinental ballistic missile. st: line for other options, maryland, go ahead. caller: hi there. flabbergasted by the situation in general and i learned a lot from people that called in about facts about north korea, so my opinion is that i don't, so, you now, if we can't come to consensus on how the cold war was won, for instance, it seems difficult to try to offer some
strategy for achieving korea, who is like far less rationale than even the soviet union. so maybe i am on the other line o the option is something like massive cyber campaign with just s subversiveness in mind. it is their plan, they love we ican television, maybe blast their airwaves with raymond" loves episodes for korea. that is really like the craziest of how that should escalate the situation. lauderdale, y, fort florida, line for more negotiations, new negotiations, go ahead. i would -- my suggestion is just if he launches missiles, we have of watching them like a football game, offense, capabilities, ng document every move, negotiating with china so we don't interrupt
with their, about money and petroleum. as somebody rocks somebody's boat, you could have major problem f. we want to maintain economics right now, just said rump everything is good, we will have ther crisis we need to go after. i'm worried about the east coast f florida, disguising garbage barges with weapons launching into the cities, for example. my main concern is putting protection on the east west coast. host: protection from who, anthony? launch those? caller: you would have foreign countries like korea designing that are friendly, getting smart boxes, because every ship comes up the east coast is recognized by a computer, they chip.what is on the they could use that against us and sneak one in and give it.
okay. myrna, riverdale, maryland, on support for those who containment. go ahead, myrna. caller: i'm in laurel, but it's okay. host: sorry about that. go ahead. caller: we have people calling in, talking about bombing here there. why can't we keep the peace? at this situation white house that is a new set of people there. know how to they negotiate anything. we should talk about peace long run, it will affect everyone, not only people n north korea, it will affect us in the u.s., we don't want a war iii, we don't need that, we need peace, we negotiate. this stuff coming up about trump, i don't care what trump me, trump is nothing, he's a fighter, he likes to
fight, i'm talking about fight. e doesn't know anything about doing negotiations with anybody. people need to really wake up. please, this up, man is not about peace in the world, this man just want to do things his way and they are the wrong way. this -- these y, people that came into the white house, they are all -- so now bombing, whyg about would we be talking about bombing north korea? be in peace just and all of you people talking about bombing and the war and be not stuff, you will be happy, you will be running, too. line james in california, for other options, james, go ahead. caller: yeah, basically, the i would say is containment is not an option, that shouldn't the lines one of because we've been containing years.r 63
working, is that what you're say something caller: we've contained them, option. not an the thing is, we didn't finish we war, after world war ii, should have let mcarthur finish it. since that didn't happen, the we're not going to take military action. ur cyber capabilities are limited and it is really not going to hurt them that much, will not be helpful, russia is already involved. i couldn't believe the guy that we shouldn't let russia get involved, they have 1950s.nvolved since the troops, d withdraw retreat to japan or whatever and basically let south korea deal it themselves. they have like the fourth largest economy in the world, one of the largest militarys in the world and we should just let them deal with
it. got to be finished one way or the other. that's the problem. our james in california, last caller on today's program. that will do it for us today, see you back here tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. eastern, 4 meantime, ic, in the have a great wednesday. >> president trump is on his way to poland and g-20 summit in germany, he left with the first lady in response to reporters
