Another Cold War In The Works? | Cold War

Tensions between the United States and North Korea reach a boiling point.

North Korea launched a missile, which threatens the safety and security of American livelihood. President Donald Trump turned to the news to express his concerns. "He said North Korea was behaving in a 'very, very dangerous manner' and that something would have to be done about it," an Al Jazeera article states. From senator to ambassador, Nikki Haley spoke on the issue, as well. "Haley said the US may use military force to defend the country and its allies against North Korea if necessary," the article continues. The United States is scrambling for the safest answer, yet the country's still in disbelief.

Another war, specifically WWIII, could happen.

However, the United Nation's working tirelessly to prevent such a horrific situation. Even Trump's searching for healthier alternatives. "Haley said the Trump administration prefers 'not to go in that direction' but to use its 'great capabilities in the area of trade' to address 'those who threaten us and ... those who supply the threats,'" she explains. Trump may be carefully reviewing his options, but the man's a loose cannon himself.

Cannons and missiles don't mix well.

"North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, has vowed to never abandon nuclear weapons, saying Tuesday's test was a 'gift' to the US," the article continues. With a cruel and unstable dictator pulling the strings, Trump's dealing with a cancerous tumor. Hopefully, he and world powers find solutions. Right now, Trump's yearning for confrontation. "I have some pretty severe things that we're thinking about. Something will have to be done. I don't draw red lines," he says at the G-20 summit. While leaders debate, North Korea's power keeps growing, growing, and growing. Between the missiles and gleeful threats, everyone should be on pins and needles. Nobody's safe.
