Korea Times(YonHap): Is US preparing preemptive strike on North Korea?
South Korea has had no discussions whatsoever with the United States about a preemptive strike on North Korea, Seoul's ambassador to Washington said.
Amb. Ahn Ho-young made the remark during a parliamentary audit of his embassy on Saturday as talk of removing North Korea's nuclear facilities through a military strike has surfaced in the U.S. in the wake of Pyongyang's fifth nuclear test.
"We've had no such discussions at least here in Washington," Ahn said during the audit held at the embassy. "We've never received a request from the U.S. government for discussions about a preemptive strike."

WNU Editor: That would be a nice gift to the next U.S. President .... President Obama ordering a preemptive strike on North Korea that will result in a war that would make the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq/Syria puny in comparison. But I think the South Korean ambassador is right .... there are no discussions about a preemptive strike because there are really no plans/desire/motivation/or reasons at this moment in time to prepare for such conflict.
