The escalation of intimidation between the United States and North Korea has reached a new level on Tuesday. After revelations about Pyongyang’s potential to fire missiles equipped with nuclear bombs, US President Donald Trump responded tacitly, and with uncommon virulence, warning his opponent that he was facing a military replica of a power historical. While experts have so far estimated that North Korean armaments are still far from being a direct threat to the United States, the situation would change considerably if the 30 to 60 nuclear warheads available to North Korea could be Sent over a long distance.
It was known that North Korea had already tested several atomic devices, and had successfully launched two launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. But what emerges from a secret report of US intelligence experts is that Pyongyang has now managed to miniaturize its bombs in order to be able to dump them over a long distance.
While Donald Trump has already engaged in a disorderly confrontation, the balance of power would no longer be the same if North Korea actually became a full-fledged nuclear power.
The President of the United States has decided to reply immediately with words that do not suggest a calming of the situation with his counterpart Kim Jong-un.
“He has uttered far too serious threats. They will be answered by fire, anger, and frankly, with such power that the world has never seen.”
While the UN Security Council had further strengthened its sanctions a few days ago, it is indeed a one-on-one meeting between the United States and North Korea.
But if it is still unclear whether the West-American coasts could soon be really threatened, Trump seems to ignore the fragile balance of this part of Asia, where Japan and especially South Korea would be even more at risk, And where China continues to play its own score.
North Korea says to consider hitting the island of Guam
North Korea said on Wednesday ” carefully consider ” a striking project on the US territory of Guam Island in the Pacific a few hours after the statements of Donald Trump.
The strike project could be ” put into practice ” as soon as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made a decision, a spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, quoted by the official KCNA news agency, said.
North Korea could also carry out a preventive operation if the United States shows signs of provocation, said another speech in a second statement.
