U.S. Gen. Robert Neller is warning about the realities of a war with North Korea, one of several periodic reminders from military leaders, saying it would be a “violent fight over some really, really tough ground,” CNN reported.

The top Marine general issued the warning on Thursday during an address at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, during which he said the U.S. military was taking measures to ensure it was prepared for potential conflict with Kim Jong Un’s armed forces, Newsweek reported.

Neller highlighted the importance of the Marines being mentally and physically prepared “for serious conflict that’s going to test them beyond anything they have ever done in their life,” but was quick to add that he was not forecasting war.

“I wasn’t predicating,” he said.

“I wasn’t saying it was going to happen. I hope it doesn’t happen. I don’t want it to happen. It would not be good for anybody,” he said, per the Washington Examiner.

However, he said, given Kim’s move to successfully launch intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and declare North Korea a nuclear state, the U.S. military is working to ensure it is prepared should conflict arise.

“It will be a very, very kinetic, physical, violent fight over some really, really tough ground and everybody is going to have to be mentally prepared,” Neller said, per CNN.

North Korea’s ground artillery as well as the country’s terrain could prove to be challenging to U.S. military but Neller assured that they were training for this.

“I think the biggest thing everybody's done is just look at, get familiar with the geography, get familiar with the plans and do some logistical preparation – that's just prudent,” he said, per Miliary.com.
