With North Korea continuing to test nuclear missiles, tension seems to be building around the world. The fear of nuclear war has grown, and countries throughout the world are doing their best to prevent it.

For those who don’t already know, North Korea has become increasingly isolationist. They have very little diplomatic involvement with almost every country except for China, and they continue to build their military. This in itself is something that points to war and that’s not including the constant missile testing and recurring threats to America.

On July 4 of this year, North Korea tested its first intercontinental missile, called an IBM.

The missile test made big news as many countries fear North Korea as a loose cannon, and the ability for a missile to reach almost any country has caused a great deal of paranoia to spread throughout the world. This paranoia has even made it all the way to the White House. On September 3, after North Korea conducted a nuclear missile test, President Trump tweeted, “North Korea has conducted a major nuclear test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile to the United States….”

More recently, on August 28, North Korea launched a missile that flew over Japan. South Korea, who has been monitoring them closely said the the missile flew 1,677 miles and reached a maximum height of 341 miles. They have tested 21 missiles in 14 tests since February, advancing their technology with each launch.

Within years, maybe evens months, North Korea could possibly have a missile capable of reaching the west coast of the U.S. As of now, North Korea’s missiles could only reach their neighboring countries, South Korea and Japan. In truth, Americans have more pressing problems than the threat of nuclear war with North Korea.
