(TheConservativeNews.org) – It looked as though we had turned a corner with the volatile communist nation when then-President Donald Trump made his historic visit to North Korea in 2019. The traditionally rocky relations the US had shared with North Korea were at their warmest in decades. Unfortunately, we’ve seen significant regression here since President Joe Biden took office. North Korea is very much a threat to us once again.
On Thursday, May 27, 1945 revealed that North Korea could have as many as eight intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting American targets, based on The Military Balance 2021 report. These missiles can travel thousands of kilometers and are typically used to carry nuclear weapons.
North Korea is also in the process of developing its arsenal of short-range ballistic missiles and its missile defense evasion systems. With 1.3 million personnel, its military is a similar size to ours, though American forces are far better-equipped.
Because of its volatility, North Korea poses a unique foreign policy challenge. However, Donald Trump managed to figure it out, and it’s about time Joe Biden started trying to do the same.
