North Korea and Iran: Part One

In this multi-part series, I am going to be exploring the many facets of the problems posed towards America by North Korea and Iran. You may ask, why am I doing this? And I would tell you, because I can!

From my standpoint, the way things are looking right now, an alliance between a nuclear North Korea, and a wanna-be nuclear Iran is potentially hazardous to our country. This is for a few reasons.

  • Both dictators have no regard for their people's well being, and run a state of ultra-security, meaning no information about the state goes in or out unless it is smuggled.
  • Their propaganda machine can pin all of their problems on the U.S and its allies, meaning that it could stir its people into a war frenzy against the "rorld", or the "infidels."
  • North Korea is nuclear, and Iran is a nuclear wanna-be.
  • North Korea has ties to Russia and China, both of whom have uneasy relations with the U.S.
  • Iran has ties to a Muslim world that openly does not like the U.S (for the most part).
  • These leaders do not really have a sense for the impact that some of their actions may have on their county and the rest of the world, i.e they are somewhat irresponsible towards their peoples needs.
So how do we deal with these problems?
