Diplomacy is always the first choice when it comes to defusing any situation thought to be headed to military conflict. As any preschooler could tell you, it’s always best to use your words and not violence. However, while that’s the policy of most of the western world, and any country that is lead by democracy, it’s not the policy of the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un who only seem to be worried about his own glory.
The toddler-like leader has proven he’s only interested in spending his time finding new ways to memorialize himself in the minds of the world. While it’s unclear what he hopes to achieve by threatening to attack the United States, which he’s done on countless occasions, the general idea seems to be what it has been for many narcissistic leaders before him; the desire to rule the world. The idea that a tiny dictatorship like North Korea has any chance of winning a world war on it’s won speaks to just how few people are willing to speak the truth to Jong-un.
However after months of President Trump and other world leaders attempting to encourage Jong-un to give up his nuclear tests, he continues his threats, and the United States has had enough. The New York Post reports that the President has given the orders, and the United States is preparing to take back American by force. While it’s obviously that if it came to all out war, America would win, hands down, the concern that North Korea might do damage to innocent Americans has prompted our military to nutralize the threat before that happens:
“The US is preparing plans to deliver a ‘bloody nose’ attack against North Korea to knock out its nuclear weapons program.
The White House has ‘dramatically’ ramped up its military plans amid fears that diplomacy won’t thwart North Korean despot Kim Jong Un from making good on his threats, sources told the UK’s Telegraph.”
