Michigan attorney Kary Love explores the legal basis for a pre-emptive attack on North Korea by the USA.


John Bolton, President Trump’s new (and improved) National Security Advisor argues a nuclear first strike against N. Korea is "legal."

I am just a country lawyer, but I read the Nuremberg Judgments to condemn aggressive war. Hitler was allegedly guilty of aggressive war when he launched first strikes against other countries. The USA hanged some of his followers for following Hitler's orders to do so. In fact, the USA hanged some of his followers for planning and preparing for those aggressive wars before they started, arguing the law must condemn and punish those who planned for such criminal wars in times of peace, or else the planning and preparation would make the temptation irresistible.
