North Korea Threatens Nuclear Warfare

On Thursday, 7 March, North Korean leaders threatened the United States with a preemptive nuclear strike. This raised alarms throughout the nation and caused many to wonder if these threats wer serious.

The threats came during a time when the U.N. Security Council was approving new sanctions against North Korea. Many believe these sanctions, including a demand to end the country’s nuclear weapons development programs, have caused North Korea to issue these threats.

An unidentified spokesman for North Korea stated that the country will issue “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors.” He later went on to say this happened because Washington is trying to start a nuclear war with North Korea.

The United States is not the only country who is feeling threatened by North Korea’s instigations of nuclear warfare.

One year ago, North Korea threatened it could turn its neighbor to the south, South Korea, “to ashes” in less than four minutes. More recently, North Korea also threatened to cancel the 1953 cease-fire that ended the Korean War.

Despite all of the threatening words, North Korea’s threats have always been empty ones.  Sources claim the country lacks any nuclear warheads capable of even reaching the United States, despite having the necessary fuel to do so. However, it would only work for crude, less powerful nuclear devices.

In North Korea there is no shortage of anti-American propaganda. Posters of drawings portraying American soldiers killing and torturing Korean citizens are found everywhere in the city.

A video was recently released as well, filled with images of Americans sleeping on benches while having to eat birds and snow to survive.

Conditions in North Korea are not any better than the images that are shown in anti-American propaganda released by them.

Residents in the country are plagued by poverty and famine, with the average life expectancy only at 65-years.

Whether Kim Jong Un is serious or not, one cannot deny that the threats made by North Korea are alarming. Americans can only wait and see whether or not the foreign power is willing to follow through with them.
