Our readers have told us that national security remains one of their top concerns and areas of interest. So we’re anxious to find out what you think about the developing situation with North Korea.
As you probably already know, tensions between North Korea and South Korea have been escalating since North Korea’s nuclear test on Feb. 12. The United Nations has tried to discourage North Korea’s nuclear ambitions with sanctions, and the United States and South Korea have been conducting military drills to let Pyongyang know that any aggression won’t be tolerated.
North Korean leaders have even threatened to use nuclear weapons against the U.S. and its military bases — even though experts don’t think they can back up the threat … yet. One of the more frightening scenarios? North Korea providing a nuclear weapon to a terrorist group.
So what do you think the U.S. should be doing about North Korea? We’ve announced plans for more missile interceptors in Alaska by 2017, but is that enough? Are their threats to be taken seriously? You can send email to email@example.com.
