Did North Korea's Latest Nuclear Test Just Change The Game?

Did North Korea's Latest Nuclear Test Just Change The Game?by

In the war of words and nuclear testing that appears to have been facilitated by North Korea in recent months, it seems that Kim Jong Un and his reclusive state are starting to mean business when it comes to their warnings for the world at large. Recent testing has set certain parts of Asia aquake – and with the US remaining coldly available on the potential of warfare against Pyongyang, the chance of a conflict between a number of nations seems to be creeping ever closer – unless, of course, a ceasefire or discussion can be made in the meantime. In recent days, however, North Korea appears to have made a further nuclear test that could well change the game.

It’s been reported that Pyongyang has allegedly tested a hydrogen bomb – a weapon which has of course devastated society in the past – and shockwaves from the recent test blast were felt all the way over in China and in neighboring South Korea and Japan, who are of course in front row seats for the testing and rhetoric that has only escalated in the past twelve months. Tremors caused by recent tests – those allegedly belonging to an H-bomb – are thought to be up to 10 times more powerful than those ever carried out by the country in the past, with 6.3 registered on the Richter scale as a result of the blast. Observatories as far flung as Scotland and Canada took note – with pressure increasing all the time on nations such as the US and China on how to react moving forward.

US President Donald Trump has cautiously advised that action would be taken if North Korean missiles stood a chance of affecting US soil – and he is thought to be meeting with military strategists to look for a potential solution to the rising threat in the East. With the magnitude of the latest nuclear test felt with perhaps more ferocity than ever before, could this mean that North Korea has an arsenal that the world needs to be worried about? For Donald Trump, at least, it is another colossal test for his role as supposed leader of the free world – as he continues to balance the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and his own political woes in what is becoming the most dramatic first year in US Presidential history. Will this mean the end of the world – or the end of Trump?
