North Korea cannot — and should not — be trusted. Despite multiple warnings from the international community, the country claims several ballistic missiles launches and nuclear bomb tests in the past few months. To make matters worse, both appear to be far from over.
President Obama admits that North Korea is “erratic” with an “irresponsible” leader, so why is it that we are not imposing new sanctions on this country?
We cannot afford to wait and see what possible destruction this country is capable of. North Korea may have failed in their past attempts, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t learn and improve their abilities. At a minimum, they will keep trying.
We must be proactive in our dealings with North Korea, and we must act NOW. If precautions are not taken, our ally — South Korea — and our own territories stand to suffer.
