North Korea is becoming more and more dangerous every day.
Just this week North Korea launched a missile that passed over the island of Japan.
But one thing President Trump is planning to do will cripple North Korea.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has proven himself to be a danger to the world.
His arrogant disregard for diplomatic relations nationwide could end up leading to World War 3.
That is if President Trump doesn’t have something to say about it first.
The United States and Japan are planning on calling for an international embargo on oil exports to North Korea.
As reported by Nikkei Asian Review:
“TOKYO — The U.S. and Japan will call for an international embargo on oil exports to North Korea in response to Tuesday’s launch of a ballistic missile over Japan, as the allies seek to strike at the lifeblood of Pyongyang’s weapons programs.
The ban will be proposed at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council to be held in New York on Tuesday at the request of Japan, the U.S. and South Korea.
All three countries are on the same page regarding tighter sanctions. In a phone call Tuesday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed that now is the time for further pressure on North Korea, rather than dialogue.
Pyongyang “signaled its contempt for its neighbors” with the launch, Trump said in a statement. “Threatening and destabilizing actions only increase the North Korean regime’s isolation,” he warned, adding that “all options are on the table.”
Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono and South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung-wha, speaking by phone, affirmed the need for a new Security Council resolution calling for tougher economic sanctions. Abe is expected to arrive at his office about an hour early Wednesday morning for a phone call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.”
Cutting off North Korea’s oil supply would be a huge blow to the isolated nation.
Their missile launch over Japan is clearly an act of aggression.
But the most troubling thing about this launch is that they are using it to send an ominous message to the United States.
This missile launch was different than the other tests they have completed.
It was meant to prove that they have the capability to strike Guam, which is home to a large contingency of active duty U.S. troops.
And prove they did.
They also showcased their arrogance by giving no warning for this strike, which they have always given before with past tests.
North Korea’s nuclear technology has advanced by leaps and bounds in the last few months.
This was only possible due to leniency when it relates to North Korea, especially during the Obama years, but it is clear that Trump is now going to end that.
This move for an oil embargo is a good sign that the United States will no longer mess around when dealing with North Korea.
Do you agree with the proposed oil embargo on North Korea?
