As the United States looks down the barrel of every weapon of war that North Korea can muster, it’s safe to say that we’re interested in any new advancements that they’ve made in that field. The entire world seems to be taking sides, and as you can imagine, most of the world wants to side with us. This hasn’t slowed down the military advancements in North Korea though.
Apparently, there’s nothing that can slow them down, not even the threat of their people dying of starvation because their best and brightest are all working on warheads instead of growing food. The problem that the United States faces today, however, is how soon to act against the tiny dictatorship and all of its talk of war. Unfortunately, the United States strike on North Korea would take out many innocent citizens, but if we wait much longer, it appears that they’ll be taking out many Americans.
News from South Korea informs us that things are progressing at a disturbing pace and that Kim Jong-un might even have a miniaturized nuclear weapon small enough to send it all the way here. If that is the case, we might find ourselves closer to all our war than we previously thought. Even though our military stands at the ready, it might be advantageous to get ahead before they do something unexpected.
Daily Mail Reports on this disturbing new information:
North Korea has announced it has successfully tested a weapon up to ten times more powerful than the Hiroshima bomb that could kill millions of people.
The trial sparked international outrage with the US warning it could launch a ‘massive military response’ to any threats from the rogue state.
But South Korea this morning claimed dictator Kim has successfully miniaturized a nuclear weapon to fit onto a missile and believes Pyongyang plans to carry out a new intercontinental ballistic missile test imminently.
‘We believe it fits in an intercontinental ballistic missile,’ Song Young-Moo told a parliamentary briefing, a day after Pyongyang’s biggest nuclear test to date.
There are fears the tyrant may choose [sic] September 9, North Korea‘s Day of the Foundation of the Republic, to carry out a spectacular new trial. The same date was chosen last year by North Korea to conduct its fifth nuclear test, marking 68 years since Kim Il-sung came to power.
This morning, Russia warned America against starting a fight with Pyongyang, claiming that ‘no country has the right to take unilateral action’ and that a ‘clumsy step can lead to an explosion’.
Seoul and the US said this morning it will deploy more anti-missile defenses to bolster The Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system that is already installed in the South.
There was no let-up in the war of words this morning with Pyongyang describing South Korea’s ‘puppet’ army as ‘scabby sheep’ and warning they face ‘world-level military power’.
Last night, the South’s military conducted a live-fire exercise simulating an attack on the North’s nuclear site, hitting ‘designated targets in the East Sea’, the report added, quoting the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Pictures showed South Korean short-range Hyunmoo ballistic missiles roaring into the sky in the pale light of dawn from a launch site on the country’s east coast. Authorities released video showing South Korean F-15K fighter jets firing air-to-ground missiles.
The weapons accurately hit their targets in the East Sea – the Korean name for the Sea of Japan – the South’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.
The exercise ‘was carried out as a strong warning’ to the North for conducting its sixth nuclear test, it added.
The training involved long-range air-to-surface missiles and ballistic missiles.
The country is also preparing fresh military drills with its ally the United States in response to North Korea’s sixth and most powerful nuclear test a day earlier.
‘The training came in response to the North’s sixth nuclear test… and involved the country’s Hyunmoo ballistic missile and the F-15K fighter jets,’ it said.
The South’s military said the range to the simulated targets were equivalent to the North’s Punggye-ri nuclear test site in its northeastern province.
The South’s environment ministry will also announce on Monday its approval of an environmental assessment report for the deployment of a controversial U.S. anti-missile defense system, a ministry official told Reuters.
Media in Seoul this morning also called for the country to consider building its own nuclear weapons amid a growing threat from its northern neighbor.
North Korea described its testing of the hydrogen bomb as a ‘perfect success’ over the weekend and this morning launched a verbal offensive at its enemies, belittling South Korea as America’s ‘puppet marine corps’.
A state newspaper described the South’s military as ‘scabby sheep’ who were trying to ‘kick off war hysteria, backed by the US’.
‘If we fire, they will die. This is the inescapable fate of the puppet warmongers.
‘The puppet military gangsters should always be mindful that if they pretend to be brave, they would not save their skins as they have neither measure nor capability to cope with the ensuing consequences.
‘It is as foolish an act as exposing the neck under straw cutter to dare counter the world-level military power equipped with powerful nuclear striking means.”
No one wants to go to war on our side, but it’s the responsibility of our government to keep the people of the United States safe. Because of that, we might end up in a conflict that has been a long time in the making.
Liberals said from the beginning that they were scared of putting President Trump in charge of our defense, however, if ever there was a time when we needed someone with backbone and decisiveness on our side, it’s now. Despite what the media tries to say about how the President exacerbated the problem, there’s just as strong an argument to be made that he is the only one who would have stood up to Jong-un enough to bring this problem to an end.
