Missiles Threaten Peace of Mind in U.S.

Posted on January 24, 2023 by


North Korea and the United States have had a rocky relationship over the past few decades. With new research and information circulating about a North Korean missile that can reach the United States, some are scared. 

The Japan Times reported, “Across the Atlantic, U.S. President Joe Biden warned in October of a potential ‘Armageddon’ hanging over the world.” 

The word “Armageddon” that The President used confused people. Information coming out about a North Korean missile has really put people on edge.

“We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban missile crisis,” President Joe Biden said. 

Armageddon is a biblical term used in the New Testament of the Bible; Armageddon is the last battle fought between the good forces and the opposing forces right before the day of judgment.

Zawya.com reported, “the threat of nuclear weapons use was the greatest since 1945 when the United States destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in history’s only atomic attacks.”

If North Korea decided they wanted to use this missile, whether it be in the U.S. or somewhere else, it would inevitably cause conflict between the U.S. and North Korea. When nuclear weapons are used, it creates catastrophic events. U.S. citizens are aware of this and fear what could potentially be in their future.

A Swedish group of analysts that assess catastrophic risks did a report on Nuclear missile crises. Their report, “warned that an all-out exchange of nuclear weapons, besides causing an enormous loss of life, would trigger clouds of dust that would obscure the sun, reducing the capacity to grow food and ushering in ‘a period of chaos and violence, during which most of the surviving world population would die from hunger.'”

The aftermath of a nuclear weapon is very brutal and would cause a lifetime of damage physically and mentally.

“I think there’s been a kind of steady erosion of the ability to manage nuclear weapons,” Benedict said, a senior advisor to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists said.

Benedict faulted the Biden administration’s nuclear weapon review procedure, which reserved the right for the United States to use nuclear weapons in “extreme circumstances.”
