Lindsey Graham on NKorea Crisis: 'If We Have To, We'll Go to War'

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said the United States will go to war with North Korea if that becomes necessary.

"I'm convinced that [President] Donald Trump would use military force to protect the homeland from a nuclear missile threat coming from North Korea. That's not an unreasonable thing," Graham said during an interview with South Carolina CBS affiliate WLTX19.

"There are no good options left when it comes to North Korea.

"If we have to, we'll go to war. I don't want to, but if we have to, we'll go to war. And I'll tell you who'll win that war: we will."

Graham said North Korea's continued threats to attack the U.S. with a nuclear weapon are growing more serious and must be taken as such.

"If there is a war with North Korea, it will be because North Korea chose a war," Graham said. "We're not going to invade North Korea to change the regime, we're not trying to unify North Korea and South Korea, we're only trying to protect the homeland from an unacceptable threat."

Graham noted that a crucial piece of the equation is China, which has a diplomatic relationship with North Korea but does not support its nuclear program.

"China is the key. Stop it now, it only gets worse later," he said.

Trump said this week any North Korean attack on the U.S. "will be met with fire and fury." The reclusive nation responded by saying it is drawing up plans to attack Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean.

"It's Guam today and it could be California tomorrow and it could be South Carolina down the road," Graham said. "If you don't stop [North Korean leader Kim Jong Un], he's going to have a hydrogen bomb, not a uranium bomb, he's gonna have a bunch of missiles, not one. If they fire at Guam, all bets are off."
