Korean War picDiplomacy is not the answer to North Korea and action by China is the next step, says a retired U.S. Army general.

"If the Chinese won't step up and go ahead, and take Kim out, then I think America is going to have to," warns Jerry Boykin, a retired lieutenant general best known for his role in Delta Force, the secretive special operations unit.

Now a vice president with the Family Research Council, Boykin is the latest person to tell OneNewsNow that China is the key to North Korea's maniacal dictator – and to warn that war on the Korean peninsula will be costly.

With the recent launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile known as the Hwasong-15, it has become apparent to many observers that Pyongyang is not being dissuaded from abandoning its nuclear weapons program.

Military analysts say the missile, an improved version that flew for 50-plus minutes, is capable of reaching virtually any target within the continental United States. It's not clear how a nuclear payload would affect flight time but North Korea is said to be close to readying a warhead, at least a small one, for an ICBM, North Korea watchdog 38 North has reported

B-1 Bomber and fighters over SKSouth Korea and the U.S., meanwhile, have launched a massive military exercise involving some 12,000 military personnel and approximately 250 aircraft, including bombers and stealth fighters.

"I hope we can avoid war," says Boykin, "but diplomacy is not the answer. We have spent way too much time talking and letting them use that time to build their capabilities."

If war comes, he predicts, Kim Jong-un is a "dead man" and North Korea will be occupied by U.S., South Korean, and Japanese troops.

Military observers, in fact, took notice recently when parasites were discovered in the stomach of a North Korean soldier who defected to South Korea, suggesting even front-line troops are enduring terrible conditions as they operate near the DMZ.

While Boykin predicts a war would end fairly quickly, a lot of people will be killed, he says.
