All the Fuss about North Korea?
1: The Short Answer
news these days is full of talk about North Korea. Why is
that question has a short answer and a long answer.
the short answer:
- North Korea is
controlled by Kim Jong Il, a dictator who has almost
total control of his country.
- North Korea has
recently announced that it did not stop its nuclear
weapons program as promised in 1994. Back then, North
Korea agreed to stop nuclear testing in exchange for U.S.
assistance in building two nuclear power plants, which
the North Koreans to use only for peaceful
Korea has very recently said that it will resume working
on nuclear bombs and, further, said it would no longer
abide by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, an
agreement signed by all the world's major nations that
prohibits the building of nuclear weapons.
- Many people also think
that North Korea already has at least one
bomb, which is
the most powerful weapon ever invented. For all these
reasons, not too many people like North Korea right
has happened before with North Korea, although not to this
extent. In 1999, famine was killing thousands of people in
North Korea. In exchange for allowing inspections of its
nuclear plants, North Korea got billions of dollars in
right now, with the attentions of the Western World
apparently focused on Iraq, the situation in North Korea has
a chance of getting worse very quickly.
North Korea have a nuclear bomb? Will the North invade South
Korea? These are questions that will be answered in time.
That's what all the fuss is about.
