North Korea Tests 3rd “Nuke” In today’s society warfare is always a scare. It is especially a scare when you wake up to the news saying one of your enemies is testing a nuclear bomb powerful enough to harm many innocent lives. This act done by North Korea is completely unacceptable and something should be done to prevent them from testing more and more weapons of mass destruction. After each test is performed over in North Korea, the Koreans celebrate the success of the production of these deadly bombs. The United Nations has to stand against these tests and make sure that these things don’t happen in the near future. Our ally, China, was also bothered by the 3rd test in recent time. This warfare is starting to get out of hand and there might be a call of action by one of the allied powers towards North Korea. Many believe that this test was a direct threat to the United States. This has been put into many minds of Americans for the simple fact of the bomb being extremely smaller than the last one, but with great explosive power. This could symbolize the future attack by North Korea towards the United States by way of a missile. The miniature atomic bomb will then be attached to the missile and then who knows where the Northern Koreans would aim it. In many past experiences the United States and North Korea have not necessarily been in agreement with each other. For example, the two countries have been in a quiet war since the Cold War. Since the Cold War, American politics have been viewed badly by the Koreans. North Koreans believed that the U.S has been threatening them with many different things. This is said to be the cause of the third nuclear test set off in North Korea. Although the Koreans say the test was justifiable, it was not. This test was not at all justifiable because of the agreement stated by the United Nations. The United Nations is a group of nations that was created directly after World War II. There are a total of 193 member states in the United Nations. Do not let this fool you; although the United Nations are made up of 193 members, the United States alone makes up about 80 percent of the defenses. The U.N. decided to keep world peace after the Second World War, which is exactly the opposite of what North Korea is doing. This is why I believe North Korea should be fatally punished for threatening as well as illegally testing a nuclear weapon. The United Nations told North Korea that there were to be no more nuclear tests, attempting to calm the weapons of mass destruction around the globe. North Korea seems to be disagreeing with the United Nations because they continue to threaten the United
When one thinks of North Korea, the first thoughts that pop into your head are certainly not “friendly, happy, and free”, but rather a description that proves to be drastically different. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or, more commonly known as North Korea, is considered to have one of the most controlling and repressive governments in the world. Some North Korean refugees have even described their own country as a massive prison. The United States and North Korea could not be more…

Korea: The North
What is the difference between North Korea and South Korea? North Korea is communist country and is run by a dictator. The events happening in North Korea resembles those of World War II. Many say that after the incident of the Holocaust such horrible event wouldn’t happen again, but it has been proven wrong.
Genocide is the killing of a certain race. The Holocaust is a good example because of its genocide against the Jews. The Holocaust happened during the World War II and was…
We do not believe that North Korea is a legitimate threat to our nation’s national security at the present time. While the North Korean government is a threat to its own people as well as our allies in their region, they are neither likely nor capable of attacking the United States. This is because the United States is far stronger with regards to our military, and we have the capability to destroy the whole country of North Korea within days. Furthermore, North Korea would not receive anything if…

of North Korea?
The world should be aware of North Korea because of all the problems within this country. North Korea’s communist regime is insane. Kim Jong IL has completely taken control of North Korea, commanding with a cruel and unjust hand, and although we are cautious of the potential threat he poses to the world, nothing is really being done to stop him.
Not only is his threat to the rest of the world’s peace something to watch for, but we should also look at the lives of the North Koreans…

North Korea’s efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction were supported by the Soviets with technical assistance and supplies. Currently North Korea it’s believed to have developed nuclear weapons;…
