There has been much talk surrounding North Korea after they recently launched four missiles near Japan—they claimed they were “practicing” to hit US bases. The secluded nation, known for its human-rights violations, is a nuclear power—this fact has the entire world worried.
It was only a six years ago when Japan suffered a nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. It has even been recorded that radiation from the disaster has it right off the coast of California. If a nuclear weapon hit a power plant, there would be devastating and unbelievable harm across the globe. There are multiple, nuclear-power plants on the island nation—are they a target as well?
Just days ago, Navy SEAL Team 6 joined South Korea in military drills for the first time. The world cannot wait for North Korea to follow through on their promise of nuking US targets. It only makes sense that South Korea and the US would work together to stop the threat.
Now, in reaction to South Korea and the US joining forces, North Korea has released a threat that is making waves across the globe.
“In a statement, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said: ‘The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK.’”
