of "the five."rs set your dvrs. "hannity" is up next. ♪ >> sean: many thanks to our friends on "the five."any a fox news alert. welcome to "hannity." the world faces an extremelyews solution. -- no good solutions. the threat fromç north korea reaches a whole new level. reuters reporting thatir north korea and their state media is now saying that pyongyang, north korea is considering a strike on guam. north korea now has developed a nuclear weapon that could be placed on one of its long-range missiles. president trump is responding ti this threat by issuing a very stern warning to this increasingly belligerent and rogue regime in pyongyang. our opening monologue in just a minute but first, joining us from washington with the very latest is ed henry.
>> sean, good to see you. the stakes could not be any higher. they believe north korea has been able to miniaturize nuclear warheads that can fit inside missiles. this follows last month's test of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile that could reach the u.s. mainland. when you put these two major developments together, it means north korean dictator kim jong un is on the verge of having nuclear warheads that can reach major american cities from los angeles to new york. and everywhere in between. the national security adviser saying that it would be intolerable for north korea to possess nuclear weapons they could reach our shores, which is why the commander-in-chief seems to be making it clear today that all options including more are on the table. >> north korea best not make any more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire andç fury. like the world has never seen.
she has been very threatening. beyond normal statement. they will be met with fire, fury, and frankly, power. the likes of which this world has never seen before. >> dianne feinstein quickly reacted. she believes they were bombastic comments. she said that this would just further isolate north korea and instead, what needs to happen is diplomacy. she's calling for direct talks between the u.s. and north korea. what is not being mentioned by the president's critics tonight. is that the president and nikki haley succeeded on saturday in bringing together a coalition to unanimously slap a new on north korea. the administration is still working diplomatic channels but it had not yet come close to stopping the threat on north korea. sean. >> sean: ed henry.>> s joining us now from theng pentagon, lucas tomlinson.
lucas, was the latest there? >> sean, the explosive report largely echoes what a top u.s. air force officer said said back in 2015, it's never shown that they could take a warhead and have it successfully reenter earth.ç ea the last month, north korea has demonstrated tort bal two intercontinental ballistic missile test.ile ea each one now putting the united states in range. the first, it went 1700 miles into space and flew for 39 minutes. the second on july 28th, 2300 miles into space and was in the air for 45 minutes. the longest and farthest missile test.est seven times higher into space and the orbit of nasa's international space station. the u.s. military has options to deal with this, of course. a missile defense program and
will have 44 interceptors in the ground, alaska and california before the year is done and in late may, they successfully yea tested this missile defense system, knocking an icbm out of outer space.s m they also have a chance to knoci down ballistic missiles in the initial phase but after the successful missile test, the u.s. navy failed. when it missed the target. it does have fire and fury andin that is to launch 400 long-range intercontinental ballistices f missiles from bases in montana, wyoming, and north dakota. and back to you, sean. >> sean: thanks, lucas. fire and fury. a very difficult shduation with north korea and the reason why?i it goes back decades to thekore clinton administration. this is something the district -- destroy trump media will never tell you.s
unfortunately, tonight i can say with full confidence -- sadly, there's no good option. that is tonight's chilling opening monologue. tonight, one of them my biggest fears has now come true.to north korea has reportedly developed a nuclear warhead that is capable of reaching the continental united states.he this threat will now become a n defining issue for the trumprump administration. it's so very important. we've got to learn and understand how we got here. if we don't learn from the lessons of history, we are lea doomed to repeat them. it was go back to 1994, the clinton administration struck a deal with kim jong un's father, kim jong il.into according to "the new york times," the u.s. agreed to give north korea over $4 billion in energy aid over" t the course of the decade inve n exchange for north korea e freezing and eventually ending their nuclear weapons program. as part of the agreement,uall north korea would allow inspectors into its nuclear sitp but this is very important -- would also be allowed to keep their nuclear fuel rods, which
could be used to make weapons for an unspecified number of years. of course, bill clinton put allu those fears aside and praised this agreement and you might bç remember when he went out thered and said this is good for the american people. wen watch this. >> i would like to say a word about the framework with north korea, that we signed this morning.rth this is a good deal for the united states. north korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear programs.t south korea and our other allies will be better protected. the entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nucleai weapons. south korea with support from japan and other nations will bear most of the cost of providing north korea with fuel to make up for the nucleart o energy it is losing.uc they will pay for an alternative power system for north korea that will allow them to tove produce electricity will makingt it much harder for them tooduc produce nuclear weapons. the united states and international inspectors will carefully monitor north korea tl
make sure it keeps its commitment. only as it does so will north korea fully joined the community of nations. >> sean: good deal. freeze, dismantle. of course bill clinton was naive and it turned out to be completely wrong. why? in 1998, north korea testfired a long-range missile and by 2006, north korea conducted their first nuclear test and under the obama administration, the north korean threat increased rapidly and literally have turned this into a crisis point at the presiden( trump now has to deal with. in the case of the obama administration, remember they drastically cut our strategic defense capabilities. not a smart thing.ns basically, the clintone administration and obama administration ignored the problem. they kicked the can down the road.icke if all of that sounds familiar, it is. it's so similar to the deal that president obama struck with the radical mullahs in iran.
president obama gave that rogue regime in tehran $150 billion in loads of cash. remember the plane loads of cash? and other currencies? the mullahs in iran said in the exchange for that money, they promised not to build nuclear weapons. tehran agreed to let inspectors into the nuclear facilities. after 25 days, iran was still allowed to have their centrifuges and conduct missile test. what we are seeing a north korea is so simple and easy to see where this iranian deal is headed. what you have to understand tonight is this. evil in our time must be recognized for what it is. you cannot appease and capitulate to evil radicals and rogue dictatorships. they don't care about honoring agreements because breaking promises, taking money, is part of the course when dealing with these kind of regimes. m5jm chamberlains hitler.
that set the stage for world war ii that led to the death of millions and millions of people. so much for peace in our time. years ago i wrote a book. called "deliver us from evil." in this book after a lot of research, i talked about how stalinism, the former soviet union, fascism, nazism, imperial japan, the killing fields of cambodia, even 9/11 resulted in the deaths between that period of over 100 million human souls. in spite of all of that, there is mindset today, evil can -- can't happen in our time. i hate to be the bearer of bad news, yes, it can and it might very soon. thanks to the naivete of bill clinton and barack obama were following in the footsteps of chamberlain, president trump today has to confront a threat and there are likely no good solutions, no good outcomes here. the united states security council on saturday did vote
unanimously to sanction north korea. china, russia jumped on board. a good step. we are dealing with an unpredictable madman. his name is kim jong un. and he wants and has nuclear weapons. he doesn't even care about the mutually assured destruction like the former soviet union did. here's what we know, north koreç reportedly -- they are now working to get the ability to put a nuclear warhead on missiles capable of hitting the united states. that means cities like boston, massachusetts. new york city, millions of people could die. and kim jong-un is reportedly testing out to launching missiles from submarines. so here's what this means. to the president tonight and now faces a clear and present danger. not only for the united states, but now the entire world. best-case scenario, okay, we form a coalition.
massive military operation, take out the nuclear sites. here's the problem with that, that would likely obliterate north korea and lead to fallout like we have never seen before. and let's say we are not successful or not as fast as we want to act, let's say kim jong-un is able to retaliate. south korea, japan, maybe even china could see human tragedy at a level that no one could ever have imagined. let me be clear. literally stupid decisions of the past were made when it comes to trusting dictators the wrong -- the world needs to take a stand tonight. author of "the new york times" bestseller understanding trump. former speaker of the house fox news contributor we've been friends for many, many years you are the great historian.ç i know your father served in war. my father served in world war ii. is there anything i'm saying here that's wrong?
is there evil and a chance that all these people can die? do we have any good options? i don't see them. >> i think the lessons of history would suggest that everything you have said so far is frighteningly right. my dad served in korea during the korean war, went back and serve later when we were defending south korea. i first got involved in looking at nuclear warfare with a book called "tomorrow." a frightening account of a nuclear weapon going off over a city like kansas city and to literally what would happen in the first 30 or 45 minutes i read when my dad was stationed at kansas, and as a teenager i was just shocked at how terrible these weapons could become. so we are talking about a
genuine threat to the north korean people, to south korea, to japan, to the united states. it would be in the millions. remember how we reacted inç 9/, and then add at least 100 times as many people per city, and then you realize how horrifying this would be. i think the time has come to recognize that all these diplomatic maneuvers, all of these u.n. resolutions you are up against a very willful dictatorship that can withstand an enormous level of sanctions. that is one of the lessons of the last 50 years. a look at how long we had sanctions on saddam hussein. they learn how to adjust and take care of the police and military, and everybody else can starve if that's what it takes. we have to do three or four things that are very big breaks
first we have to develop two more types of ballistic missile systems. we have to work on airborne lasers, radically invest in them, and get to a point so that we have them on launch so when we are worried about a north korean launch, we can kill it on its way up when it is most targetable and most stable. we should reach back to the reagan years and take the space concept.ç an ability not have one shot. they fare one or two, that does not give you the redundancy you need. you need some kind of space based system where you are going to get 20, 30, 40 shots and a missile like this, as it goes through -- very important. we need to recognize both in south korea, japan and the
united states a need for real civil defense. we should be capable of withstanding three nuclear events in three different cities the same day. and having the hospitals, the engineering, the military police that would enable us to minimize the loss of human life. this is serious, serious stuff. finally, i think we have to have a very rapid preemptive strike capability. we will take them out before they have a chance to attack. sorry for the long answer. >> sean: no, it's an important answer. when we get back, i want to talk about the presidents comments. fire, fury, power. diane feinstein going back to appeasement. more with newt gingrich and john bolton here with reaction on its busy, scary breaking news night. straight ahead. ♪ when a fire is going on,

he's going to feel it and all that money he's been using for his ballistic missile program, and he's not feeding his people, it just got reduced in a big way. what we are saying is now the ball is in your court. kim now has to decide if he's going to turn around and say the international community is telling me to stop or is he going to have a temper tantrum?ç >> sean: that was nikki haley earlier today on "fox & friends" talking about the new north korea sanctions. china and russia joined in with the united states. newt gingrich, mr. speaker, i just tried to lay out a history, all the ways this naive belief, neville chamberlain is the classic example that everybody uses. and then we look at what bill clinton did with the north koreans that allow them to get to where we are today. we saw barack obama naively handing over billions and billions of dollars. and i think he naively believes they will abide by the agreement. when the president sets fire,
fury, and power, and sets further isolate north korea and then she suggests bilateral talks with kim jong un, i'm just thinking of just don't get it. you can't negotiate with crazy people like this. >> as ambassador nikki haley said, it's been a pretty powerful signal to the u.n. unanimous votes for stronger sanctions paired will it have any effect? start with the assumption that none of this works.ç then, what you need to do? what i tried in the last segment is there are a number of very bold, very powerful steps we could take if we acted on a wartime basis. if we said this is an existential threat. millions of american lives are
at stake. millions of japanese lives are at stake. millions of north korean lives are at stake, to be fair. we should be moving with an intensity, developing a series of steps. that enables us to say to north korea we don't need to continue diplomatically. if you decide to behave in a stupid way, we are surrounding you with mechanisms which will coarse you and make you harmless and ultimately crush you. the ball is in your court. you want to be eliminated? we will have the assets to do it. in fact, we would like to negotiate but it's your call, not our call. we cannot do is have another decade of piously helping that sanctions and diplomacy and talk are going to be a substitute for very profound change in north korea. there is zero evidence we are going to see profound change.
>> sean: i love what you are saying, especially about the missile technology to take out -- we do have some gvpá antiballistic missile technology available to us but when you talk about -- i've always said that i think president reagan's greatest legacy was -- the vision about strategic defense, he was mocked greatly for it. let's say like in world war ii, we have a coalition. former soviet union was our enemy. against nazi germany. even if we have a world alliance that included china, israel, russia, western europe, the united states and we combined military forces to take other sites, the obliteration of north korea and the risk that he launches weapons before his obliterated? >> that's why you have to invest
very dramatically now in much more redundant systems of killing missiles. you cannot afford to rely on very sophisticated, very limited number of missiles, who do not have a track record of being able to cope with any significant launch. i doubt very much if we would get one or two of them right now. we want to build a system that the layered defense. we know how to do this. we studied how to do it againstç the soviets and remember, they had thousands of missiles. president reagan was suggesting a defense system on a much bigger scale than you would need against north korea. we also want to have very targeted weapons. we don't want to kill lots and lots of north koreans. we may need very hypersonic missiles. delivering to very specific sites.

months at best. this capability if it's accurate, north korea can miniaturize this. we are at risk very soon. we know our intelligence as far. from perfect. i don't know when thatence capability will be in the north koreans hands.bili we have very limited optionsds. here and the military option -- it's gotta be at the center of it. the american people have to ask themselves this question. are you willing to live with a regime like north korea holding american civilians at risk of a nuclear attack? by the way, the same questionhe applies to tehran. the capability is that north korea has today, iran can have tomorrow by sending a wire transfer. >> sean: do you agree with former speaker of the house newt gingrich? i agree with him.agr we need to look at this as a clear and present danger to the country and expedite the th technology and placement of the weaponry that could take thisnoo
out with redundancy.weap that gives us 40 or more chances to take something out, ifed god forbid it's ever launched.un >> in terms of ballistic missile defense as a whole, we can blame barack obama. he gutted the bushç administration's plan for missile defense and we are very much at risk because of obama'se policies. in terms of the offense of sideh sean, i don't think they have theet time. as i say, i think we have months to decide whether we will allow north korea to have that capability to have nuclear warheads essentially anywhere they want inside thee nu united states. they are not going to be as sophisticated as ours. their guidance system may not be as good. soso what?ly d they aim for los angeles and hit san francisco. that doesn't make us feel anynd better. once they really do get that capability, it's much harder and the risk for one of those missiles actually being fired at

together, i wish i could say to everybody that i was so wrong. i this was a good deal like president clinton said. but we can't say that, can we?h, >> no. in fact, the president's message based on the intelligence that the democratic people's republic of korea already has a nuclear weapon and the means of delivering it on our homeland is an existential threat and his remarks were spot on. here's why, the threats posed by pyongyang are far more seriousus than what kennedy faced in theak cuban missile crisis. the soviets wanted to survivecua the experience.surv that's why mutually assured destruction work. i listened very carefully to ambassador bolton and newt gingrich. i don't want to read the jeremiad because i've always said that military force ought to be the last option. but the soviets were all alone in their threats. cuba was ussr's only ally and castro was useless.
the obama administration's malign neglect of thenucl north korean iranianç connectin in building nuclear weapons and the means of delivery has allowed kim jong-un, ruler of one of theac poorestqu nations n earth to rapidly acquire the means of striking the u.s. that's why he's talking the way he is. he has doubt as to whether we will do it. i have considerable doubt as to whether the leaders in north korea or tehran have the same survival instinct as the russians. as newt gingrich and speaker --g ambassador bolton pointed out,in the programs approved by reagan were never fully implemented. we are virtually naked againstap this attack.pr moscow voted for new sanctions is a very clear signal -- theyso too are concerned. take reasonable steps to convince the chinese, president xi, he's running out of time to take care of the situation in pyongyang.g ou

a preemptive strike.de, that might be all that is left.k he's not going to sit back and g blame the other administrations and people before him that could have done something about it.isr he made it clear during the campaign he was going to do with the situation. we can't appease north korea. there nuclear capability has to be dismantled and i don't think that's going to come frome negotiations.nuto c >> sean: there is a great risk there, lieutenant colonel. he could launch.e cr before missiles get there. even if we create a great coalition -- to me, you are talking about a need to almost incinerate north korea to get the job done. >> yes, sean. i want to be very clear here in the military options, how badthy they are and how difficult. this is not just some fighters going in and taking him out or
his program out. he and his father andçen p grandfather have been preparing for this for 50 years. they have these things dug intov the sides of mountains, down ind bunkers. a fairly sophisticated defense system. and to the trump card is the artillery, the thousands of artillery pieces they have ready to rain down on seoul. it's like artillery coming down on manhattan. we would not be able to take al that out before he would be able to unleash it. we need to be sure that every option has been exhausted. we need to put a lot of pressure on the chinese to strangle them financially.gle yes, our ambassador nikki haley had a great success this week and a new sanctions but the chinese have to enforce it and they have to change. they are more afraid of the an unified korea and a fallen. regime then a war. we need to make it clear that we are serious. >> sean: it's a bigger geopolitical threat to them, sheriff.
>> all these options have to be played out until the end. as indicated by several people, time is running out.ple, we look at this and we know how dire it is. we can't punt, we know that.ng something's got to be done and's it's not going to be clean oro e easy.an o there may be massive loss of life over in that region and nobody wants to see that but at the same time, if you try to bue this guy off, we will be dealing with this again at some point in time. but that's what we selected theç president to do. to be a commander in chief. >> sean: thank you very much. a lot of good options.comm we will close out "hannity" when we come back. a very important question of the day. ♪
