North Korea poses a serious threat to our safety
October 19, 2017
If someone threatened your life, would you just ignore it? The definition of a threat is a statement of an intention to inflict pain, damage, or other malicious action on someone. A threat is real, it is imminent, and it should be taken in a serious manner. Conflicts have recently increased between North Korea and the United States. More specifically the rivalry has escalated since Kim Jong-Un accelerated his country’s nuclear weapon program.
On multiple occasions, Kim Jong-un has threatened to initiate a nuclear war against the United States. We must take a strong stance against this enemy. Nuclear weapons are present, they are fatal and they will be used. In order to succeed, the United States and our allies should do everything in their power to strike the enemies first. Waiting around for North Korea to invade us will end in catastrophic results, and that is not an option.
These are not just ordinary threats. North Korea has constantly threatened to launch nuclear bombs not only on the United States, but also on our allies. President Donald Trump responded by stating that he would “totally destroy North Korea” if his country is forced to defend itself or its allies. Regardless of how people perceive these threats, they are real.
The US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, shared with the United States that we have access to channels that allow direct communication to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. Donald Trump released a tweet stating, “Save your energy, Rex! We will do what needs to be done.” Some people may see this tweet as a bit harsh, but this tweet reassures American citizens that our president will do anything in his power to protect his country and its allies.
The United States should respond to North Korea’s threats with a strategic plan in mind. The most intelligent mission is to keep North Korea in the dark. We need to show Kim Jong-Un that the United States is a much more powerful country. However, we must review all the possibilities that could occur as a result of this action. For example, North Korea could potentially fire back at the United States. In contrast, they could be under severe conditions and be unable to counterattack.Korea thr
Psychology says, always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that will help you grow. Donald Trump lives by his quote, “I like thinking big, if you’re going to be thinking anything you might as well think big.” Taking out the North Korean government is a perfect example of thinking big. The risks of an extreme execution plan is endless, but the success is much greater than the loss. The biggest risk one can take is to do nothing in a situation that deserves our everything.
