Former ambassador to NATO Nicholas Burns said he doesn’t see North Korea backing down –but believes going to war with the rogue nation would be a mistake– on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday.

“I just don’t see the North Koreans backing down,” Burns said. “There is no reason for us to be threatening a war with North Korea right now. It really is time for diplomacy.”

Burns praised the 15-0 vote for sanctions against North Korea, calling it a “big step forward,” but expressed concern over China’s involvement in the escalation. “Diplomacy between Beijing and Washington is as critical now as any other part of this crisis,” he said.

Burns suggested empowering Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to threaten secondary sanctions on “Chinese and other companies that do business with North Korea” to force a response.

“I think we have to put together a bigger coalition in Asia to try isolate the North Koreans … but I don’t think that war is imminent,” Burns said.

    If we back down, it’s all over for the USA as a global power. None of our enemies will fear us any longer.

    It is a little more complicated than that. We can easily overwhelm North Korea militarily, but North Korea will be able to launch a massive artillery barrage on South Korea’s capital before we can knock out their forces, also Kim can likely deploy nukes against Japan and South Korea. So while he can’t stop us he can inflict very serious damage on our friends and allies.

    That has always been the conventional argument as to why we have never taken military action against NOKO. Well doesn’t it make sense that collectively our allies , Japan and S. Korea’s weaponry has dramatically improved over the years. If not, what the heck have we been doing for 60 years ?
