Richardson: NKorea Attack Would Be 'Suicidal'

By Matthew Auerbach

Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said Thursday that if North Korea goes ahead with their threat to attack America, the move would prove “suicidal” for their country, reports Politico.

Richardson also believes the Obama administration needs to have an “endgame” in case the situation escalates.

“There’s been a lot of rhetoric [from North Korea] and not a lot of action, . . . but I think our response has been appropriate: cool, calm and at the same time, putting our military resources ready in case there’s an emergency,” Richardson said on CNN.

Was Harry Reid right to Reject It?

“But if they try anything with the United States, it’s suicidal. That’s not going to happen.”

Richardson said leaders must act to “cool down” the situation, and he recommended diplomacy.

“Something is needed to cool things down,” said Richardson.

“I think there has to be an endgame to the administration’s policy, and the endgame in my view is diplomacy — some kind of special envoy, some kind of South Korean diplomat.”

Richardson has visited North Korea many times in the past and had dealings with its rulers.
