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.

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
