North Korea Update

As you may know relations between the US and North Korea have not been positive and as tensions heighten, the fear of a nuclear war grows stronger and more probable. Both North Korea and the US are in a war of words as Kim Jong-un is determined to set off their sixth nuclear bomb testing.

Donald Trump has warned that military action may be possible as he moves anti-missile systems, submarines, and aircraft carriers into the North Korean region. North Korea said on May 15th that they had successfully tested a missile that would put US bases in the Pacific within reach of its destruction. Even countries such as China and Russia have both said that they’re fearful about the possible outcome of these heated arguments between the US and North Korea. Recently, however, Russia has declared that Donald Trump is “more dangerous” than Kim Jong-un. Russian reporter Dmitry Kiselyov said: “The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war. War can break out as a result of confrontation between two personalities: Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. Both are dangerous, but who is more dangerous? Trump is.”

In response to these heightened fears of a nuclear war, China has started to test a range of new missiles and weapons to “enhance” their “combat skills”. The military testing was held in the north-eastern Bahai Sea and were said to be “successful” by Chinese officials. According to reports, Chinese President Xi Jinping is overseeing a large sweep of modernizing the Chinese military.

All in all we’re on the brink of another large war. Tensions are growing between nations and the thirst to be better than all is starting to become more apparent of a desire by these large military powers. As the US and U.N. try to prevent any kind of war and nuclear testing, the only thing us citizens can do is wait and see how all of this is going to turn out.
