Senior Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said Sunday that it is time to move the families of US military personnel out of South Korea.
"With the provocation of North Korea, it seems unreasonable to sending spouses and children to South Korea, "Graham told CBS TV. "And I think it's time to start moving American family members out of South Korea."
Last week, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that some observers say shows the country's ability to attack the United States. It was the strongest North Korean weapons test so far.
Graham's comments came following the comments of national security adviser H.R. McMaster said Saturday that the possibility of a US war with North Korea "grows every day." [vm]
