Mattis: Military solution to NKorea would be 'tragic'

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Friday that President Donald Trump has accelerated the global campaign against the Islamic State by directing USA -led coalition forces to surround enemy fighters in their strongholds before advancing to attack them.

Experts said the missile could have flown about 4,500 km if it had been fired at a normal angle.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis issued a reminder of the costs of a military solution to the growing threat on the Korean Peninsula in a press briefing Friday. But he stressed the need for a peaceful resolution by working through the United Nations and with countries including China.

Mattis appeared to defend China's most recent efforts, even as he acknowledged Pyongyang's march forward.

Mattis told reporters Friday that North Korea "probably learned a lot" from last weekend's launch. "They clearly aren't listening", he said, referring to Sunday's successful testing of a new intermediate-range ballistic missile.

Though Mattis said Pyongyang isn't listening to cautions from the global community, he credited China's efforts to apply pressure as having some limited influence.

The North said that it fired the missile at the highest angle in consideration of security of neighboring countries, and the missile reached the maximum altitude of more than 2,111.5 kilometers before landing in the East Sea 787 km away. "But I'm not willing to characterize it beyond that right now", Mattis said.

Also speaking at the Pentagon on Friday, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford, said strikes against Syrian government-backed fighters this week were a "force protection measure", and would not happen again if USA forces are not threatened.

Mattis also discussed the fight against ISIS saying the US -led coalition was now encircling Islamic State fighters in their strongholds in a tactical shift before starting a military campaign to destroy them.
