Since the beginning of time, war has been vital to a nation’s existence and destruction. Through the years war and tyranny has shaped the countries of the world as you see them today. From the making of swords and shields to the creation of the most destructive warheads, many countries have been in competition of creating the most deadly weaponry in the world’s history. This competition has caused many problems and threats with different countries.
Nuclear warfare is a military conflict and political strategy in which nuclear weaponry is used to inflict damage on an opponent. The U.S has been skating on thin ice with North Korea and their weapons of mass destruction. North Korea was a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty but withdrew in 2003, citing the failure of the United States to fulfill its end of the agreed framework. In 2006 the North Korean government issued an announcement that they had successfully tested a nuclear warhead. The United States Geological Survey confirmed a earthquake near North Korea at a 4.3 magnitude, indicating a nuclear detonation. In 2009 many reports stated North Korea had full nuclear power as another earthquake was confirmed at a 4.7 seismic event. It was said they had close to 6 nuclear warheads in 2009 but could increase to around 50 by 2015.
North Korea and the United States have been enemies since the beginning of the Cold War. Now that North Korea has the ability to launch nuclear war heads they are pointing them right at the U.S. Many people say its just a matter of time before an all out nuclear brawl between the most powerful countries in the world.
