On September 23rd, Donald Trump sent a tweet mocking and insulting North Korea and Kim Jong Un. The Foreign Minister of North Korea mistook this insult as a declaration of war. They have now been preparing their defense. The Foreign Minister, Ri Yong Ho, also said that they have the right to shoot down any U.S. strategic bombers flying in or around their air space.

On Saturday September 23rd, a U.N. Meeting took place, and leaders from countries around the world met to discuss problems the world is facing. Later that night, Donald Trump shared his thoughts on the North Korean Foreign Minister’s speech.

At approximately 9:00 p.m. that night Trump tweeted, “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!”

After seeing this tweet, Ri then accused Donald Trump of declaring war on North Korea. According to CNN, Ri also said, “Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make self-defensive counter measures, including the right to shoot down the United States strategic bombers at any time even when they are not yet inside the aerospace border of our country.”

As tensions grow stronger between the U.S. and North Korea, a nuclear war becomes more of a possibility. When asked about a possible nuclear war, Ms. Angela Fisher shared her opinion, “I definitely do not think we should wage a nuclear war with North Korea.” Fisher also stated, “I really wish that they were open to peaceful negotiations and communications.”

Similar to Ms. Fisher, Mrs. Kim Phipps, a teacher at Summit High School said, “If we can at all, diplomatically, come to an agreement that that would be mutually advantageous.” Both Ms. Fisher and Mrs. Phipps feel that coming to an agreement without violence would be best in the eyes of our country.

Also, recently North Korea has been launching Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles in order to test their distance. Since February 12th, 2017, Kim Jong Un of North Korea has been consistently testing the strength of their warheads. Countries such as Japan and South Korea face serious risks from missiles from North Korea.

 

Another teacher at Summit High School, Mr. Jotwan Daniels, when asked how he felt about North Korean missile testing, shared, “It worries me, as that as a nation, I think could have nefarious reasons for these tests.”

It is clear that North Korea is becoming a great threat to the United States. If nothing is done to solve this conflict then catastrophic events may take place.
