The growing tension between north and South Korea has increased once more. The alert level of US and South Korean troops has risen in response to threats from Pyongyang. North Korea will attack any US or South Korean ship that will try to intercept with their vessels. The North Korean leader’s anger was sparked by the decision of South Korea to join a US led initiative to stop, check and inspect any vessels that is suspicious of carrying weapons of mass destruction. Nevertheless, they also claim no longer be bound by the armistice record. In spite of all the efforts that have been taken to increase stability in the region North Korea keeps on threatening. All threats have to be taken seriously because the country has got Nuclear power which makes the situation much scarier than ever before. If a war breaks out, the consequences will be devastating. I hope that the international community is strong enough to form a stable alliance in order to dismantle North Korea by building up the pressure as a team. Economic sanctions might help to steer into the right direction.
Why can’t they all just get along?
