North Korea tested a new nuclear weapon last Friday and is daring the west to add sanctions.
The rogue nation of North Korea conducted a nuclear weapon’s test on Friday of it’s most powerful weapon.
Nations around the world, including the United States, condemned North Korea for taking such actions, but clearly they are not worried about any retaliation.
The test took place on Friday and North Korea says that they have figured out how to mount a nuke to a ballistic missile and can now potentially hit the west coast of the United States.
After the test, Obama and other world leaders started talking about sanctions. Obama said that he may be willing to even add new unilateral sanctions.
How did North Korea respond? A state run news channel in North Korea quoted a high-ranking official.
“The group of Obama’s running around and talking about meaningless sanctions until today is highly laughable, when their ‘strategic patience’ policy is completely worn out and they are close to packing up to move out.”
“As we’ve made clear, measures to strengthen the national nuclear power in quality and quantity will continue to protect our dignity and right to live from augmented threats of nuclear war from the United States,”
North Korea is doing their best to arm themselves and seem paranoid that America is going to attack. They also continue to threaten South Korea, while China works to take over the South China Sea.
Japan Joined in condemning the nuke test and have indicated they support stronger sanctions.
What is next for the isolated country?
North Korea says they are going to continue their efforts in building up their nuclear arsenal, but is Obama going to add new sanctions or it all talk?
