I'd rather frank warning about this situation from former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Not mincing any words mr.
Cheney reportedly told Republican leaders in congress quote we're in deep you do.
Advising them not to eliminate any possibility when dealing with this regime.
The -- become so -- the US air force has reversed the plan to cut the use of missile warning radar in the Aleutian Islands.
The island chain extends about 12100 miles off the coast of Alaska not far from Russia.
Several missile tracking radars have been in use out there since the 1940s.
And are powerful enough to track objects.
In space where watch it.
What happens next if the north actually does decide to launch a missile.
KT McFarland was the deputy assistant secretary of defense for President Reagan -- she's a Fox News national security analyst first let's just start with do you think they're gonna do it.
I think you're definitely gonna test something you -- and I they got two possibilities and I think they do it within the next several days and -- -- pointed out.
In other Monday is that hundredth anniversary of the birth of the founder and -- Korean state the grandfather of the current guy and a look alike of the current leader.
So I do think -- -- -- questions what do they do and -- ago.
If this is a missile.
As everybody assumes another missile tests they've done this before it's headed to the deep -- as they usually as they usually do we don't do anything but if it looks like it's either a mistake it's going in the wrong place intentionally.
Or by accident looks like it might.
Hit Japan or South Korea or any of US.
You know forces generation or -- we shoot that thing down.
Why would he do that he wasn't that I mean that is just as it -- -- his own self destruction is -- not sure because what do we do we.
He will then be in a position of having to rig -- -- -- escalate and -- organized they shot it down I think -- shoot.
Radio show and out of South Korea -- -- sank -- South Korean ship.
And you can see an escalation if this guy starts a fight him finish this fight and so I don't think he wants to do that is he doesn't want to -- -- about the taunting.
It's the -- about so now that he's getting to the point we've got to make or break on the threats if he launches this missile and sends it off into the water and we don't do it is that the end of it is like out next year -- again.
-- -- -- -- Visiting if they do this every spring it's like each other -- -- -- life savings time to North Korean military crisis they do it because they want stuff from last.
And we always come running.
Now at the end of this crisis of -- assume that -- -- ends up without going to war.
One of the north Koreans got this I Europe -- is how about world hostage.
He has had everybody in the world on the edge of their seats isn't going to fire -- -- going to be a -- is going to be a nuclear war.
He's gotten exactly what he wants he'll get the aid that it wants every year -- this crisis management technique.
But what is the real take away -- -- nuclear weapons.
And nobody Stockton the Clinton administration the Bush Administration the Obama administration -- -- North Korea you're.
Never going to be allowed to get nuclear weapons well guess -- He's got a he's not the only one watching -- exactly and the bigger messages that are Iranians are looking.
They have -- same warnings from -- Bush Administration the Obama administration.
And they're gonna say if they didn't stop that gets weekend North Korea they are never gonna stop the great Persian empire from getting -- You make of it's been interesting to watch some of the push back in particular the European Union today came out told North Korea.
The situation on the ground does not justify a evacuating EU member states diplomats despite what you've said it just doesn't -- because he warned you better get -- diplomats -- you're now the EU is said.
Now and I believe Brian what I mean what do you make of that big -- sort of called his bluff.
That what they're trying to downplay the crisis I think the interesting thing it's not just with the Europeans have said.
Is what the Chinese have said.
Now the Chinese are that.
Mentor nation to the north Koreans and ended up there's a -- cheered today -- -- public that we thought so we think so but the Chinese have come out.
And the last week and said the north Koreans essentially they say they shouldn't be allowed to hold the world hostage or -- world peace in the balance for their own selfish interest.
We have always as -- the Chinese could stop the north Koreans and where Rain Man.
Can make -- I think that this is a real test moment not just for Koreans but for China while.
We'll see I mean if today was supposed to be the day we'll see what Kim -- does.
Kati was -- get your -- thank you ma'am thanks.
