The Navy of the United States may launch a missile attack on North Korea, from submarines. About this military commentator Dave Majumdar wrote in a blog for the American magazine The National Interest.

The author draws attention to the emergence in the region of the Korean Peninsula by the American submarine USS Tucson (SSN-770). 7 October, she came into a South Korean port Chinchaga and went to sea four days later.

Majumdar writes that the USS Tucson is not the most modern submarine and can not be used effectively against enemy submarines, but with 12 launchers with vertical launch cruise missiles “Tomahawk”.

Thus, the impact from the water will complicate the detection of the enemy launch site of the missiles.

The author believes that the presence of the USS Tucson serves as a warning to Pyongyang from the US and attempt to force the DPRK leadership to “soften” its behavior.

Another reason for the emergence of an American submarine, information about the movements which are usually not disclosed, “to reassure Seoul that the United States will not abandon its allies.”

Since 2006, North Korea has produced six nuclear weapons tests. Last September 3 of this year. Over the past two months she has conducted several ballistic missiles.

The UN Security Council on 11 September adopted a resolution on toughening of sanctions against North Korea by selecting the ban on exports of North Korean textiles as well as hard limits on supply the country of petroleum products, particularly crude oil and condensates.

30 September the US state Department said that officials of North Korea has not shown signs of interest in talks on denuclearization, despite the fact that the United States had direct communication channels with the DPRK.

On 1 October the President of the United States Donald trump advised the Secretary of state Rex Tillerson not to waste time in search of dialogue with the DPRK.

October 7, the us President wrote on Twitter that “the presidents and their administration talked to North Korea 25 years, entered into agreements and paid huge sums of money, but it didn’t work”.

“I’m sorry, but there’s only one thing this could work,” he concluded.

When reporters asked trump to explain his latest tweet, he stated that “there is nothing to explain”. To the question, what “one thing” can work, the President said, “pretty soon You’ll see it.”

On 9 October the Minister of defence James Mattis said that the U.S. army must be ready for “military options” for dealing with North Korea.
