Brandon Lai Writing 4 2013/04/23 North Korea Threats to World Peace North Korea is one of the country in nowadays world that still have a system of totalitarianism and a communist state country, also a “military first” based country. In 2006, the first time mentioned that North Korea has a nuclear weapon test, it gives the whole world a nuclear strike threat. Since, Kim Jung-un became the supreme leader of North Korea, the military of North Korea has become stronger daily, and in recent months North Korea gave the whole world a massage that there will be a war happen with nuclear threat.
There are few effects with the threatening to the whole world. “In the past, North Korea-related events had little impact or the markets recovered quickly,” the South’s vice finance minister, Choo Kyung-ho, told a meeting of top finance officials Friday. “But recent threats from North Korea are stronger and the impact may therefore not disappear quickly. ” , New York Times. In the recent threats from North Korea, South Korea tells that it’s getting more danger than the past.
Each threat from North Korea will carry on some fear from South Korea, always will carry some mention that if North Korea attacks the impact to the country will be uncountable. In fact, South Korea has witnessed the consequences for the financial market. Indeed, the North Korea has already successfully attack the South Korea’s economy. In the other hand, North Korea threat has also nervous the Japan in a fear of nuclear war. “Given North Korea’s past adventurism, this scenario is within the range of its rational choices,” ,Michishita wrote. , ERIC TALMADGE. In Focus: North Korea’s Nuclear Threats In Focus: North Korea’s Nuclear Threats In Focus: North Korea’s Nuclear Threats Indeed, Japan really a perfect place for North Korea to launch a missile test. Japan perhaps will be the best place to launch a missile because it is close enough for North Korea to feasibly reach a nuclear missile to the main cities. Also, it is also a better place to launch a missile than South Korea. Striking a nuclear missile too close to their home land may cause a effect of nuclear fallout.
All these considers makes Japan taking the threat of North Korea more serious and increase the nervous on their home land. As for why North Korea even threatening the United State, the biggest reason is that they believe the recent joint United State-South Korea military exercise has bring them suspicion on the threat of this two country, also, the United State has repeatedly to the United Nations sanctions against North Korea in the nuclear bomb testing. In the past, the United States used to tamp down tensions of the North Korea nuclear bomb development and test by offering concessions and talks.
However, now the United States is tired of the provocative action from The North and has enough preparation of military to deal with North Korea’s nuclear actions. “Obama, speaking to reporters after he met UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon at the White House, said: “We both agreed that now’s the time for North Korea to end the kind of belligerent approach that they’ve been taking and to try to lower temperatures. ”, the guardian. The effect of nuclear weapon is good for no one.
Once a nuclear bomb dropped, within 1 second a bomb with yield of 1 megaton would destroy 80 square miles. The shock wave that the explosion come with is even more far than the explosion does, the blast effect will come with a powerful wind which can immediately destroy well-built buildings. There are also long-term effects for it includes the radiation that’s come along with the explosion, there is more than 300 different products can cause by the radiation which is all harmful to human bodies that can cause disease and affect the next generation.
Also, the fallout of the nuclear explosion can last as long as 50 to 100 years , a large number of smoke and ashes will be produced and blocks the sunlight which cause a cold weather in the explosion area can this effect called as “ nuclear winter”. All in all, there is still a controversy on North Korea threat to the world peace, also a controversy on the development on nuclear weapon. Although North Korea intimidate the whole world that the war is going to broke out soon, there is no action seen so far from the country, perhaps it will become a long term threat to the world peace.
