Tensions are swiftly rising between the United States and North Korea; and unlike the previous administration, Trump isn’t willing to put up with the rogue state’s antics.
This week, senators gathered at the White House to discuss North Korea and how the U.S. plans to handle this “urgent national security threat.” The rogue regime may soon join the ranks of Iran, Syria and Sudan on the state sponsors of terrorism list.
While the United States has issued several warnings to Pyongyang, it seems Kim Jung-Un is intent on testing the new administration’s limits.
Earlier this month, North Korea announced it will begin conducting missile tests on a weekly basis, threatened to sink the USS Carl Vinson, and detained another U.S. citizen. The country also attempted yet another display of military strength and conducted its “largest ever” live-fire exercise this week, launching rockets and torpedoes at mock enemy warships. On Thursday, a North Korean website also released a propaganda video of a massive simulated attack on the U.S.
Various members of the Trump administration have said they would like to solve things diplomatically. However, Trump acknowledged that there is still a strong chance that the U.S. will end up in a “major, major conflict” with the regime.
While we wait to see what the White House’s next move will be, here are seven cartoons that expertly capture our current rift with North Korea.
