With tensions still on a meteoric rise on the Korean Peninsula, the world at large is being forced to prepare for the worst case scenario.
U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean “supreme” leader Kim Jong Un have been trading barbs for nearly a year now, with both men being refusing to budge an inch on their intentions. For Trump, the only acceptable outcome is a North Korea without nuclear weapons, a goal that runs diametrically opposed to the hopes and dreams of the rogue regime. Kim Jong Un, on the other hand, will stop at nothing to achieve atomic capabilities that he believes will allow him a seat at the head of the international table.
This has led to a blustery stalemate between the two nations, with North Korea pushing the envelope through the continued testing of ICBM’s and possible hydrogen bombs.
With Kim Jong Un moving dangerously close to a confrontation with Donald Trump’s military, and North Korean artillery aimed directly as Seoul, South Korea at all times, America has been forced to send a dire warning to its citizens residing in the southern capital: Get out while you still can.
“FAMILIES of US military should leave South Korea because war between America and Pyongyang is ‘getting close’, according to a senior US Senator and ex-Air Force Colonel.
“Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has warned that the rising tensions between the the US and Kim Jong-un’s corrupt regime means preparations for war need to be taken.
“The member of the Senate Armed Services Committee warned the US was “running out of time” to prepare itself for war when speaking on CBS yesterday.
“He said: ‘I want the Pentagon to stop sending dependents and I think it’s now time to start moving American dependents out of South Korea.’
“’We’re getting close to a military conflict because North Korea is marching toward marrying up the technology of an ICBM with a nuclear weapon on top that can not only get to America, but deliver the weapon.'”
The latest ICBM test by North Korea showcased a missile that sailed high into the the earth’s atmosphere during a lengthy 50-minute flight. U.S. military intelligence confirmed that the device could reach any point on the U.S. mainland, and could be equipped with a nuclear warhead within the year.
This, along with the delivery of a half dozen F-22 Raptor warplanes to the region over the last few days, has made conflict seem inevitable between the two opposing nations. And with North Korea unwilling to flinch in their long-standing stalemate with South Korea, it is almost guaranteed that any American military action will result in danger for our allies in Seoul.
