North Korea and the United States have never existed peacefully, maintaining a rocky relationship since the start. Overlooking North Korea as a legitimate threat could eventually lead to serious repercussions.

Kim Jong-un’s rein has recently begun to make threats to neighboring nations, launching powerful and dangerous nuclear missiles, and threatening the safety of South Korea. These are serious concerns, and North Korea’s primary target? The United States.

Kim Jong-un has launched two successful nuclear missiles this year, and is working towards his end goal of firing a missile capable of reaching the United States. This month, Jong-un ordered the shooting of four ballistic missiles, landing near waters by Japan, generating strong protests in Tokyo and other nearby Japanese cities. Since then, China has allegedly given up financially assisting the country. North Korea may be losing its established ties to neighboring communist countries, but the nation is not deterred from it’s end goal.

In response to these attacks, the US military reported that Kim Jong-un ordered a testing of a nuclear missile- ending in complete failure. The U.S. Pacific Command revealed in a statement that the missile “appears to have exploded within seconds of launch.” The reason for this mishap is not fully known, but it is believed that the Obama administration ordered cyber warfare, which may have sabotaged this launch as well as others.

Although their launch failures may seem reassuring, the nation has promised to continue the advancement of their nuclear program. Kim Jong-un believes the United States has shown ongoing hostility, even though the U.S. has only taken cautionary measures to prevent North Korea from further attacks. North Korea is a menacing country, but the United States government and military officials are working hard to protect the general population.
