North Korea conducted its 5th test of a nuclear weapon on Thursday. The blast had the explosive power of 10 kilotons, the largest yet.
Fox News reported that,
“North Korea confirmed that it had conducted a ‘nuclear warhead explosion’ test Friday, defying international sanctions and increasing diplomatic pressure to curb its nuclear ambitions.”
Obama’s weak attempts at stopping the rogue nation from conducting the tests has accomplished absolutely nothing, further endangering Americans to an attack.
Since Obama came to power, and during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, North Korea’s nuclear tests have only gotten more frequent, and more powerful.
According to Fox, North Korea stated that it will continue to increase the number of nuclear weapons it has, and the level of their power.
In a stroke of irony, President Obama left Vietnam just the day before. He was in Asia for the G20 meeting.
During his visit Obama said that he would work to reduce North Korea’s nuclear threat. Apparently Kim Jong has so much respect for Obama, he decided to slap him in the face with a nuke test.
The test caused an earthquake in the area that registered 5.3 on the Richter scale.
North Korean state television announced the successful nuclear detonation.
North Korea conducted another nuclear test in January. Prior to Thursday’s test, it was the nation’s most powerful yet.
In June, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said that he would meet with Kim Jong-Un, and that there is a 10-20% chance that he could talk him out of continuing development of nuclear weapons.
The candidate said, “It’s something I’ve been talking about for a long time. You have this madman over there who probably would use [nuclear weapons] and nobody talks to him, other than, of course, Dennis Rodman. That’s about it.”
Trump also supports China pressuring North Korea to abandon its nuclear plans.
Seeing that Obama and Hillary have failed so spectacularly at stopping the rogue nation’s nuclear ambitions, Trump is the obvious choice to at least begin a dialogue and let him work his deal making magic.
