Kingsmeadow Reacts To… USA – North Korea Tensions
We all know about North Korea’s recent actions with their military launching several nuclear missile tests as of late. We also know that North Korea is a corrupt nation under the leadership of dictator Kim Jong-Un. Tensions are only rising as United States President Donald Trump has continued the verbal war with the so-called ‘Hermit Kingdom’.
Year 7 student Evan, had this to say about the possible war: “I think it is quite silly as there is no need for rising tensions!
“I do not believe that they can’t just make up and agree on a deal that works for both of them. If he (Kim Jong-Un) attacks the US, tensions will become even higher and a war will almost definitely start.”
Recently, North Korea have conducted a missile test near Japan and that has understandably risen tensions. As well as this there has been a nuclear scare in Hawaii, although this was in fact simply human error.
Many commentators on this issue consider Donald Trump’s actions to be no less that inflammatory. Here’s what Year 7 student Christopher had to say on Trump’s involvement: “His recent actions are out of order and he needs to stop thinking of himself and think what is best for America. From what I have heard I think Oprah Winfrey should take office.”
Nuclear strikes are still a threat to almost all of the world, and both North Korea and USA are at the forefront of this looming threat.
The threat affects the UK too, as we are close allies with the US. This is Year 7 student Bradley’s opinion of the situation: “I think they shouldn’t be doing it, this will almost definitely lead to something bigger.”
We can now only hope that Kim Jong-Un changes his ways or Trump gets impeached or voted out of office. We encourage readers to pay attention to this tension and remain vigilant.
