Trump gives one last warning to North Korea
President Trump has recently pointed out that North Korea is an issue that will be dealt with, not long after the U.S army dropped the biggest non-nuclear bomb on ISIS in Afghanistan.
“I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not,” the President noted. “North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of.”
The bomb dropped on Thursday, called the “mother of all bombs,” was manufactured to destroy an ISIS tunnel camp underground. The attack on the Islamic State is the second major attack in a week. President Trump launched missile strikes on a Syrian airbase past Thursday as a reaction to the use of chemical weapon by the Assad regime.
Following the Syria attack, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the attacks indicated that President Trump is “willing to act when governments and actors cross the line,” sayng, “It is clear that President Trump made that statement to the world tonight.”
North Korea seems to be preparing a sixth nuclear test, with experts saying that the Punggye-ri nuclear test site is “primed and ready” for a nuclear nuclear threat. According to evidence, a nuclear device may already be in the tunnels in preparation for another test.
President Trump’s strikes on Syria and the Islamic State in Afghanistan may restore America’s deterrence potential after years of being passive.
In North Korea, former administration’s stance was known as “strategic patience,” even though during former President Obama’s tenure, Pyongyang tested four nuclear devices. However, it still remains to be seen whether North Korea will be heed these warnings.
