What often comes to mind when I think about North Korea is nuclear weapons, dictatorship and poverty. This may not be far from the truth, but I have no evidence to confirm that these are the most redeeming traits of this country. North Korea has made it clear they are a threat to the United State with nuclear capacities. Unfortunately I believe because of their isolation and threats against the US there is a lot of statements made about the country that may be over exaggerated. Considering North Korea does not allow many outsiders into the country, it would be right to assume we may not know everything about them. Therefore U. S. citizens have developed the idea that North Korea is

A decade ago, North Korea was known the last country that still choose to close from communicating with other countries. The country itself is poor, and the citizen of the country lives in a very bad condition. Even though the citizen is suffered, the country chose not to open to the world until recently year. IN 2018, North Korea starts to talk to other country about opening up to world, starting with South Korea, and then the U.S. The thing that makes a lot of country afraid to talk about North Korea is the capability of nuclear weapon of the country. The country created and tested many type of

A New Method of Nuclear Deterrence in North Korea
Independent Research GT
With the recent proliferation of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, the United States needs to develop new methods of nuclear deterrence to ensure the continued safety and diplomacy of both themselves, and other nations by eliminating any new nuclear threats. Previous tactics, strategies, behavior and sanctionings will be looked at to determine what may or may not work against North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. This starts with understanding what strategies the United States has taken towards ridding the nuclear threat in North Korea, as well as other nations in similar scenarios to determine what

Reason why the United State get involved in Korea and Vietnam War
The Vietnam and Korean was a longest war fought in America history lasting from
1950 to 1975. The war are very similar that both conflict involved a Communist and Capitalist
participant. The U.S got involved in both war in an attempt to fight Communism, the idea that if
one country fell into Communism the entire asia pacific would fall and it will affect U.S relation
with the region, and their provision of economic and military aid to South Korea and Vietnam.
There were however, other reason for the U.S involvement such as their military confidence.

North Korea is a secretive country, one of these incidents happened in 1970s and the early 1980s of various nationality. From Lebanese to Japanese the North Korean government either abducted or tricked into joining their ridiculous beliefs and traditions to worship the their ‘unbeatable’ leaders. Why would they give up their time, effort and money into these foreigners? No one has a exact answer but it could be to try the ridiculous objective of turning into one Korea once again.

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). The frequency of these threats while at first very alarming, made the American public dismissive of the threat. After listening to many one sided reports on the issue, I decided to look for what the world thought of North Korea's war threats and the North Korean and American

Korea and the president, Donald Trump, have repeatedly threatened “a sea of fire” and “power the likes of which this world has never been seen before.” Not only has North Korea placed a threat on the U.S., but one on Japan as well. The ICAN, International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, group is working hard to keep the world at peace by ensuring that Trump’s ability to launch a nuclear first strike without congressional authorization is eliminated, while also making efforts to reinforce the restriction of the use of nuclear weapons by any country. Although many countries, including the U.S., support the efforts of ICAN, the question still remains: Will this completely get rid of the

In 1960, South Korea was considered as one of the poorest countries within the world. In 1960s South Korean government started to promote the import of raw materials and technology, concentrate their resources on export-oriented industries that still crucial for the South Korean economy till today. Under these policies, the South Korean economy has been growing at a good pace since 1961.

‘The main reason why the United States entered the Korean War was in order to defend the South Korea.’ Explain why you agree or disagree with this view.
Whilst, the impression that the US gave in attempting to defend South Korea seems plausible, however that is not the only main reasons. Ever since, the loss of China to communism, this heavily effected the US to be involved in the Korea war. The mindset of Truman and Eisenhower was truly to contain communism, the pressure of McCarthyism in the US, then the detonation of Atomic Bomb by the USSR and the Sino-Soviet treaty that prompted the US to enter the Korean War, which is why I disagree with the view.

In this article, the author explains how President Trump is slowly losing international credibility due to his "constant bluffing". This varies from the wall at the Mexican border to stop all trade with North Korea.
When I first saw this article, the bias towards President Trump was pronounced.
The title of this article is "For everyone's sake, Trump needs to stop bluffing so badly."
Even this shows bias against Trump, saying he must stop lying. The article starts with the author explaining how Donald Trump spoke to an audience in Arizona about his fight

Korean peninsula and the USSR similarly did not want the U.S to occupy more. Both of the super powers saw this as a temporary boarder. Two separate governments started forming in the north and Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the south Republic of Korea(ROK). These two governments claimed to be the legitimate government, This hostility reached its peak when North Korean forces invaded the ROK. North Korea was supported by the USSR and the PRC. The USSR supported the north as it was a state within the communist world, to spread the communist ideology and to dominate the U.S.’s influence in Southeast Asia. China also supported the DPRK this was to support the communist ideology but

Analysis Target: Authors Purpose/ Message
A significant moment in Ayn Rand's "Anthem" is when Equality presents his glowing glass box to the world council of Scholars and is ridiculed for what he has done in secrecy. "We give you the power of the sky!" and "Let us flood our cities with light. Let us bring a new light to men!" I believe they are truly doing the right thing, when others feel the complete opposite, the setting in Anthem isn't the only place where people are criticized for being different and aberrant.

When we first heard the news we were relieved. North Korea had announced
that if the military of any country was to fire a single bullet or munition they would
respond with nuclear war. We thought there was no chance of us going to war because
president Bernie Sanders wouldn’t risk the lives of millions of Americans, but the
Republican controlled congress had other ideas. It was the shock of a lifetime when we
received draft notices. It wasn’t clear what was going to happen. There was no way we
could invade North Korea with the threat of a nuclear war hanging over our heads, and
there was not much threat of them attacking us at home, so why were we being

The ministry of truth is responsible for "correcting" history. By doing so, the citizens of
Oceania believe that their country is mistake-free and has always been. Similarly, in North
Korea, the internet is fully blocked in addition to many methods of obtaining information

Some other examples are the Cuban missile crises, where the Russian funded Cuban military had secretly made or smuggled nuclear missiles onto the island and pointed them at the USA.

To make this bleak situation even worse is that in that same study by CPJ, “Five journalists arrested in 2001 may have died in prison according to recent exiles”, but because of limited access to information, none of the deaths can be confirmed.
North Korea also has limited access to information. Article fifty-three of their constitution calls for freedom of the press, but almost all of the content from their newspapers comes from the Korean Central News Agency, which focuses on the political leadership statements and activities.

intuition tells me, however, that the emotional pulse of the U.S. remains similar to that of September 10.When considering long-term changes in the United States, one might hypothesize that American politics and foreign policy will soon take a new turn. Evidence of governmental evolution is found in interventionist policies in Afghanistan, Iraq, and possibly North Korea. Perhaps the US will move into a more multi-lateralist position (though that doesn't now seem to be the case). Whatever the direct outcomes of 9/11, one can easily anticipate significant changes in the nature of American foreign policy.Will America recover? Yes. Will America ever be the same? In my opinion, the question is more affirmative than negative. The United States have always maintained an culture open and inviting to change and evolution, whether it be social, political, or economic. 9/11 has initiated further change, and America will respond accordingly.
