It is a scary morning when you wake up to news that two of the most erratic world leadersare suddenly speaking a nuclear language.
North Korea has fired 22 missiles, including two across Japan, during 15 tests since February this year. Trump has said that he has a different approach on North Korea’s recent missile and nuclear tests, asserting that the problem has reached a point where “something has to be done”.
“I think I might have a somewhat different attitude and a different way than other people. I think perhaps I feel stronger and tougher on that subject than other people, but I listen to everybody,” Trump asserted. North Korea foreign minister has accused Trump of lighting the wick of war.
Experts have called for North Korea’ satellites to be inspected before take-off as fears grow Kim Jong-un could be ready to use one to drop a hydrogen bomb on mainland America. Kim Jong-un was spotted in a H-bomb factory with his generals last week following North Korea’s sixth nuclear test.
North Korea has remained the only country to develop nuclear power without vigilance. It is a closed state with no surveillance. There have been messages from its people that they live in fear, but the authoritarian state has a strict reign over its people and resources.
But speaking a nuclear language is suicidal in this day. We all remember with remorse and sadness the images from Hiroshima and Nagasaki when US bombed it to conclude the Second World War. A repeat of the threat could wipe out countries and hamper generations to come as the nuclear potential has grown exponentially.
