For the past few weeks, tension has been growing between North Korea and the U.S. Most understand why America doesn’t like North Korea because they seem to be threatening us with their new nuclear weapons, but what about North Korea’s view of America. Why don’t they like the U.S, and why does it seem like they want war?
America’s participation in the Korean War might have something to do with it since North Korea disliked the fact that the U.S aided the South in the war. Plus, America dropped many bombs on North Korea killing thousands of solders as well as civilians. They destroyed much of the country, so it is fair to say that North Korea hates the US for helping the south in the war.
After the North and the South split North Korea wanted to gain power of the South even if it meant war. The North wants to reunite for power but America disagrees and wants a peaceful reunion of the two countries. Considering the fact that a peace treaty was never made after the war, people seem to think the war never ended. So now, North Korea is just picking up where it left off.
After North Korea fired a missile over Japan, and started to show their nuclear power, Trump made some comments to the president of North Korea Kim Jong-un that has made tension grow between North Korea and the U.S. more.
Throwing insults at someone is a good way to get them to dislike you even more. Should people be concerned by North Korea’s threat of war? Yes, but that doesn’t mean making it worse by creating more conflict with them, and with each other. North Korea wants power so by over reacting and trying to make it “better” it is making North Korea think it has the upper hand.
