The U.S. would "utterly destroy" the North Korean military in a war,
the U.S.
army's top uniformed official said on Thursday.

Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley warned, however, that war in
 the Korean
peninsula would be "highly deadly," bearing a high cost in terms of
 human life,
infrastructure and economic fallout.

"War in the Korean peninsula would be terrible, however a nuclear
 weapon
detonating in Los Angeles would be [even more] terrible," Milley said
 in a
speech to the National Press Club in Washington, about America's
 security
threats.  "North Korea is the single, most-dangerous threat facing the
international community and the U.S. today"

In the past year, North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un has test-fired 28
 ballistic
missiles, which is more than his father and grandfather during their
 entire
reigns combined.

Since the test launch of what U.S. experts believe to be an
 intercontinental
ballistic missile (ICBM) with the potential of reaching Alaska on July
 4, North
Korean state media have talked up the country's nuclear strength,
 repeatedly
threatening a "pre-emptive nuclear strike" to the "heart" of the U.S.

Milley warned that, given Pyongyang's progress with it's ICBM testing,
 the time
to stop North Korea from obtaining nuclear weapons, a key point in the
 U.S.'s
security strategy, had shortened significantly.

"Time is running out, North Korea is extremely dangerous and it gets
 more
dangerous as time goes by," he said.

Milley said he did not think there were any good options when
 considering
measures to contain the threat from North Korea.

"Choices will have to be made, one way or the other. None of these
 choices are
particularly palatable, none of them are good. The consequences of
 doing
nothing is not good, the consequences of accepting them with a nuclear
 weapon
that can strike at the United States is not good, the consequences of
 armed
conflict is not good, the consequences of a collapsed North Korea is
 not good,"
he said.

"But it does not relieve us of the responsibility of choice. We are
 going to
have to make conscious decisions that are going to have significant
consequences," he added.

"... A liberal is a man who leaves the room when a fight begins."
