What Is The New Kid Thinking!

Butcher PAGE 2Butcher PAGE 1Chloe ButcherProfessor K. KoenigEnglish 1C12 September 2013What is the New Kid Thinking! If the world was a playground, Kim Jong Un is the new kid on the block; and his confusing actions-threats of nuclear war-seem to be his way proving himself to the other countries. A few months ago North Korea (almost daily) declared nuclear war on the United States and South Korea (New York Times.com).

Therefore, North Korea's wariness of the alliance has to do both with a fear of South Korea following in their footsteps and their strong want to be nuclear ready. The two reasons work hand in hand to work as North Korea's rationalization of why it is okay to declare nuclear war on a country.Alternatively, The Middle East perhaps paints the best picture of the situation with their emphasis on the Partisan Mindset. Partisan Mindset is best described as viewing everything as us against them. So it is not very confusing that Al Jazeera emphasized this...
