It's basically a hawkish approach he recommends, but not a preemptive strike.
Another piece says that McMaster is the one pushing for a preemptive strike
People really aren't seeing the big picture. Whether its the military parade (which is really about reminding the world ::cough:: kim jong) about how powerful the US is without launching a war.
Or Pence/etc at the Olympics.

Rambling thoughts as I've watched the media react like stupid hicks to Pence and NK at the olympics as if every move isn't carefully choreographed on both sides.
We also have to have "leaks" that state we aren't opposed to a first strike in order to establish that strong position.
