What Trump’s Admiration for General Douglas MacArthur Says about His North Korea Doctrine

President Trump has long been an admirer of General Douglas MacArthur. From the campaign trail to the Presidency, Trump voiced his admiration for MacArthur many times.

General MacArthur, like Trump, believed that a strong military was critical to the survival of the United States military. MacArthur was an American warrior, and he believed in winning at any cost.

Among many other accomplishments, General MacArthur was a Five-Star General, Field Marshal of the Philippine Army and Chief of Staff of the US Army during the 1930’s. Like President Trump, General MacArthur was not afraid to stand up to conventional wisdom.

The latter end of General MacArthur’s career is perhaps best defined by his two requests to use nuclear bombs to score decisive strategic victories.

After a long stent of lobbying by General MacArthur In 1951, during the height of the stalemate in the Korean Conflict, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drafted orders authorizing nuclear attacks on Chinese forces. One day after these orders were drafted, in April 1951, President Truman authorized the transfer of nine Mark 4 Nuclear Bombs to military control.

This laid the way for the use of nuclear weapons against communist forces in the Korean Conflict. After a series of deliberations, the use of nuclear weapons was decided against.

This willingness of General MacArthur to do whatever it takes to win, whether in be in the Pacific Command, during WW2 or at the helm of armed forces strategy during the Korean war, is exactly what leads President Trump to admire the him.

Experts are beginning to come to an agreement about what North Korea’s capabilities are. John Bolton said this weekend: “Pyongyang is perilously close to being able to hit targets across the continental United States with nuclear warheads, perhaps thermonuclear ones.”

When trying to predict, “What will President Trump do?”, ask yourself, “What would General MacArthur do?”

By examining the extensive, detailed historical record of General MacArthur’s strategy and action, which were overwhelmingly successful, we can see exactly what will likely take place with North Korea.
