Things between North Korea and the USA have been sensitive, to say the least, but thanks to the provocations of Donald Trump the current President of the USA and the short temper of the North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un. Things are heating up even more between the two nations. With each passing day, the likelihood of War is definitely getting very high which could have negative consequences for everyone around the globe. But why is there so much friction between the two nations and why can the outcome be catastrophic for everyone?

Besides the humanitarian crisis in North Korea, the main cause of both nations tension and being constantly at each other’s neck is North Koreas nuclear Program which would enable North Korea is succeeded to be capable of mounting a nuclear attack at the US and anyone else they wish. Naturally, the US would be hesitant to giving someone that has shown to be prone to use force to get his point across be in control of Nuclear Warheads that could level cities. North Korea is seemingly closer than ever to fully develop their Nuclear Arsenal and has even gone as far as to make open threats to Nuke the USA which has resulted in equally unbelievable remarks from President Trump through tweets.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!

It’s not only the US that’s against the idea of North Korea having nuclear warheads. North Korea has been under constant scrutiny because of repeated threats of World War 3 towards the international community which is definitely not helping find a peaceful resolution. As a sign of force, Donald Trump has deployed nuclear bombers to the Andersen Air Force Base on Guam which was threatened to be bombed by North Korea many times. Former army intelligence officer Michael Pregent said: “It’s good to see the show of force in Guam.”
North Korea has been fanning World War 3 fears and has ramped up their nuclear and ballistic missile programs considerably which has why the US President Donald Trump has gone on record to say that any threat by North Korea will be responded with Fire and Fury.

Speaking on BBC News, Herbert Raymond McMaster, a United States National Security Advisor said the US is ready to “compel the denuclearisation of North Korea”. Donald Trump has made his and the United States stance on how they intend to deal with North Korea clear. The US is considering a full-blown war against North Korea and has made it clear that until North Korea doesn’t stop their Nuclear program they aren’t willing to come to a peaceful resolution to this very real and dangerous crisis.
Herbert Raymond McMaster, a United States National Security Advisor said “We are committed to a resolution. We want the resolution to be peaceful but as the President said all options are on the table.
“We have to be prepared if necessary to compel the denuclearisation of North Korea without the cooperation of that regime.
“The chances of war, who know what they are. They could go up or down based on what we decide to do.
“North Korea is a grave threat to all civilized people across the globe.”
This is extremely alarming: GOP Sen. Jim Risch says Trump is willing to start a "very, very brief" war with North Korea that will lead to "mass casualties the likes of which the planet has never seen. It will be of biblical proportions." https://t.co/zUYz1OLrFf pic.twitter.com/Y8i6G72yg1

The only silver lining of the current relationships between the US and North Korea is that thanks to the constant attacks from Donald Trump along with his aggressive take on the situation, North Korea has to be more precise Leader Kim Jong-un has finally reopened communication channels with Seoul after two years of radio silence which comes as a surprise to many since during that time periods North Korea did continue to test long and mid-range missiles, threatening his neighbors along with overseas Nations.
With all of the failed “experts” weighing in, does anybody really believe that talks and dialogue would be going on between North and South Korea right now if I wasn’t firm, strong and willing to commit our total “might” against the North. Fools, but talks are a good thing!

Michael Pregent has also gone on record to praise Donald Trump for his leadership and aggressive take on the situation that forced North Korea to open communications with the South. He told Fox News: “Part of all this is North Korea has been able to sell this message to the rest of the world that this is between North Korea and the United States. ‘Our missiles are aimed at the United States.’ “What’s good to hear is that the South Korean President has actually given President Trump credit for the talks between the two countries.”

Even with all the heat, it still looks like that the US is willing to sit down and have a sensible conversation given the other side is willing to do the same. Considering that no one wants to deal with a nuclear war that does seem like the best option.
‘We certainly have problems with North Korea,’ President Trump said in a recent interview. ‘A lot of good talks are going on right now. A lot of good energy. I see a lot of good energy. I like it very much what I’m seeing… hopefully, a lot of good things are going to work out.’
