It was recently rumored that the United States were readying possibly military action against North Korea following missile tests off the Japanese coast and the assassination of the controversial leader Kim Jong Un’s half brother in Taiwan.
United States and North Korea move closer to Nuclear conflict
While there has been tension between the two sides for decades, newly elected president Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have both recently been edging closer to an all-out conflict as saber rattling has turned to a genuine threat from both sides. The recent missiles launched by North Korea landed in Japanese waters and were seen as a direct provocation by the Trump administration who have stated that they will not hesitate to act if they feel that they or their allies are threatened.
U.S President Donald Trump had previously mentioned taking preventative measures against North Korea as one of his priorities in ensuring the safety of American citizens and allies. To that end, missile defense systems were publicly moved into strategic positions in both South Korea and Japan recently as part of an already sophisticated anti-missile system tasked with preventing North Korean missiles striking civilian or military targets.
Now in a further development, Trump has ordered B-1 and B-52 bombers to be sent to South Korea, as well as F-35B stealth fighters. There is also numerous other U.S military units and hardware moving into strategic positions from around the Pacific. B-52 bombers, of course, are one of the most iconic aircraft in the U.S military arsenal and are capable of carrying nuclear payloads.
An actual conflict would not likely be in the best interests of either side, with North Korea’s massive standing army capable of launching an all out inland invasion of South Korea. The United States, Japan, and South Korea meanwhile have comparatively limitless resources to bombard North Korea by land sea and air, and such a conflict would likely prove costly for both sides and almost would almost certainly prove to b the end of Kim Jong Un’s reign as leader.
Further exacerbating the situation the United States and South Korea are about to begin their annual Foal Eagle military exercise, a show of strength involving some 300,000 South Korean troops and 15,000 American troops. North Korea spokesmen have repeatedly called the war games a practice for upcoming attacks against them.
