Should the U.S. take a hard line with North Korea?

In an unprecedented move, all 100 senators were invited to the White House to discuss the volatile and escalating situation with North Korea's military regime. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said diplomacy has "failed" in the region and all options are "on the table," which some worry could lead to a nuclear confrontation. Others say containment has not worked, and North Korea must be dealt with before it constructs even more weapons of mass instruction. What do you think?🇺🇸 ⚠️ 🇰🇵

While senior defense analyst Bruce Bennett told CNN this "is a dangerous situation that could get out of hand," he acknowledged that "even if a strategic miscalculation happened tomorrow, many experts believe war isn't imminent."

And many simply don't trust President Trump or Secretary Tillerson on their claim that negotiation is over. They say now is the time for diplomacy, not Twitter threats.
