Voice of America reports that “a former senior diplomat under President George W. Bush says President-elect U.S. Donald Trump would quickly and unilaterally approve a preemptive military strike against North Korea to take out a standing inter-continental ballistic missile armed with a nuclear warhead.”

“Ambassador Christopher Hill, who led the U.S. delegation to the Six Party Talks on the North Korean nuclear issues a decade ago, said, ‘North Korea needs to understand that there will be a new sheriff in town in Washington.’”

“Hill, who currently is the Dean of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, was in Seoul on Monday to address a South Korean government conference on the prospects for peace and unification on the Korean Peninsula.”
