Defense Secretary, James Mattis, announced earlier today that if North Korea ends up acting out their threats of sending missiles to the U.S., “it’s game on.”
While speaking to reporters, Mattis said that any missile sent to the United States or even Guam, it will be intercepted and the U.S. military would “take it out”
North Koreans have just recently said that they will launch a total of four ballistic missiles into the sea just right outside of Guam.
Reporters asked Mattis how the U.S. would respond in an event of North Korea sending missiles over to Guam or the United States. In which he refused to answer, but he did tell us that if radar detected any missile heading towards Guam or the U.S., it would be up to President Trump to decide further action.
Here’s what Mattis said:
“If they shoot at the United States, I’m assuming they’ve hit the United States. … If they do that, then it’s game on.”
“You don’t shoot at people in this world unless you want to bear the consequences,” Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon.
