Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, told reporters that nuclear war is not imminent at this time. Nevertheless, tensions have been rising, and Kim Jung-Un is much closer to having his nuclear war program ready to “fire” at Guam, a U.S. territory only 2,100 miles from North Korea.
Trump threatened that North Korea would be in “big, big trouble” if they were to attack Guam. Seeing as President Trump has attempted to keep his promises so far while in office, there seems to be little doubt that he would go through with attacking North Korea if they were to hurt Guam.
While Mr. Pompeo said there is no immediate threat of nuclear war, he did admit that North Korea’s nuclear program has advanced quite a bit in the past month or so. He says they are closer than before, but not quite there yet.
The people of Guam are not alarmed, and they are “used to being threatened,” as though it were a regular thing. Tourists in the Guam area from China and South Korea laughed in an interview, saying that “North Korea always does this.”
As tensions continue to rise, many countries around North Korea have been urging Trump to stop the threatening talk. Chinese and South Korean officials have been particularly strong about the stance to maintain peace, to protect their citizens who are easily in firing range of Kim Jung-Un. However, even with Trump’s comments, the real issue for North Korea is the United Nation’s economic sanctions that have been placed on their country; causing the real tensions to mount earlier in July.
It has been a wild couple of months with threats of war, and the possibility of North Korea hitting the United States’ mainland with nuclear bombs. The North Koreans continue to seek control of the entire Korean peninsula with the North Korean regime in power. The United States continues to seek ways to give South Korea the key to the Korean peninsula and end the reign of Kim Jung-Un.
