There is an air of trepidation wafting between the United States and North Korea over the latter’s continued work toward becoming a nuclear superpower.
Over the course of Donald Trump’s fledgling presidency, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has consistently ramped up his vile rhetoric and military might in an attempt to persuade the international community to give him a wide berth. Unfortunately for the dainty dictator of the DPRK, his ridiculous rants have only heightened the attention that the no-nonsense Trump is willing to give him.
Now that Kim has launched two successful ICBM’s that could reach the United States, as well as detonating a possible hydrogen bomb in his underground nuclear facility, the U.S. has been compelled to respond in full.
The latest plan to squash the Kim regime’s hopes of bullying the entire world now lies with the United Nation’s recent sanctions against the hermit kingdom – a disciplinary action that was championed by U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.
Of course, North Korea immediately erupted in outrage, hurling vulgar insults at both the UN and Haley, prompting today’s tough talk from President Trump.
“President Trump warned North Korea on Tuesday that the sanctions imposed a day earlier on the regime by the U.N. Security Council are ‘nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen.’
“The president’s comments are the latest tough talk against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has dramatically escalated his country’s nuclear and missile tests in recent weeks.
“The Security Council on Monday voted unanimously to impose tougher economic sanctions, about a week after North Korea claimed to have conducted an underground hydrogen bomb test.
“’We think it’s just another very small step — not a big deal,’ Trump said Tuesday, referring to his and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s view of the sanctions.
“‘I don’t know if it has any impact, but certainly it was nice to get a 15-to-nothing vote. But those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen, he said.”
North Korea’s nuclear ambitions aside, the nation has been on the UN radar for quite a while due to their horrendous human rights violations.
The reclusive nation’s continued use of concentration camps has been the subject a humanitarian campaign for decades, as harrowing tales from within these horrific hostels would make even Heinrich Himmler’s stomach turn in disgust.
Furthermore, as explained in the video above, the nation has resorted to severe isolationism and censorship in order to maintain control of its population.
