Some thoughts about where he said that nobody wants a war. That no side, not the US, North Korea, China, Russia, etc., want a war. I think he's not recognizing the conflict of interest between North Korea and the US. North Korea wants nuclear tipped BMs. The US does not want them to have nuclear tipped BMs. In the past 2 or 3 decades, North Korea's goal has been going piece by piece, step by step, and by now, all those pieces and steps have reached a point of getting close to achieving that goal. The US wants to stop it before reaching that goal. So even though nobody wants a war, when it comes to the final critical time where North Korea is just shy of accomplishing the goal, the desire to want to go to war can suddenly switch in place of the desire to avoid war.
