The Threat of Nuclear Destruction

The Obama Administration have their hands full. North Korea is a potential nuclear threat due to their recent skirmish with launching test missiles. They disobeyed warning signs from the United States and the United Nations.

The State Department needs to diffuse the threat before further conflict starts another war. The use of coercion is imminent to treat the problem. Though President Obama wanted to adopt diplomacy, the North Korean issue is becoming worse. America has to be more serious about handling the nuclear threat.

Prevent a nation from launching missiles - ones that pose a nuclear threat - could be done using a trade embargo, the type that would cripple their economy.

We cannot afford to take any risks. The American government must find a way to neutralize the threat to prevent further conflict. The U.S. military is already dealing with two wars due to terrorism. Another war versus a nuclear power increases the risk of a World War.

The threat is always there. Confronting the problem now to preserve the future is better than waiting for the threat to materialize into a catastrophic war. We have no choice but to worry.

Hopefully the threat of nuclear destruction stays inside films and away from reality.

Since January 20, 2009, the Obama Administration has taken on many challenges. While the economy has rattled American businesses, the federal government must be more alert about North Korea's nuclear tests . If nuclear weapons are used, the future as we know it will cease to exist.

Nuclear weapons can never be used anywhere on Earth. The media continues to report on North Korea as a nuclear threat. Recently, President Obama and South Korea communicated their nuclear concerns, which North Korea took as a potential threat.

Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM's) are able to travel for thousands of miles. Originally, the Soviet Union developed the missiles to keep pace in the Cold War. ICBM's could reach as far as 3500 miles away, which puts Hawaii at risk.

North Korea has stated that their launch was to set a satellite into orbit. Launching nuclear missiles violate the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963.

Atomic and hydrogen bombs were the worst inventions of the 20th Century. What we need to do is to keep nuclear weapons away from irresponsible nations. Though, it seems as if the United States is unable to prevent some nations from deploying nuclear weapons.

Pakistan and India both have nuclear weapons as a determent from one another, which neutralizes any outside threats.

Having access to nuclear weapons is also known as international prestige. Nations that have nuclear weapons are taken more seriously than others.

The United Nations monitors countries to keep nuclear information and weapons away from extremists and other nations that want to abuse their power.

People need to work together to confront climate control. We have to preserve our future. Preventing nuclear destruction is a priority. Ignoring the threat is not an option.

President Obama has responded to the North Korean threat and mentioned that its something that is not taken lightly. Thermonuclear destruction has been on the minds of people since the creation of the hydrogen bomb.

In the 1950', comic books and magazines used to feature many covers and stories focusing on atomic bombs. The atomic bombs that were dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima were measured in 16 and 21 kilotons.

When hydrogen bombs were created, the most powerful one produced an explosion measuring 150 megatons. The power of the strongest bomb is unimaginable.

The world needs to focus on preserving the planet instead of killing it off. The threat of nuclear destruction is realistic.

While the American infrastructure is struggling to recover from a near economic collapse, the two wars still continue to linger on. America can't handle another outside threat, especially ones that involve nuclear weapons.

If we fail to realize the threat of nuclear destruction, all of mankind will be lost.
