There has been an increase in the support of taking forceful actions towards North Korea which has seemed to be unpredictable in its steps and decision taken especially in terms of security. It has maintained its stand on the nuclear arsenal and other programs associated to it, creating a threat to the security of the whole region and the whole in general (Kim, 2002 pg.6). It has also refused to involve itself in any form of negotiation making the other nations abandon further negotiations and are determined to take some forceful action against it. I greatly disagree with the stand of forceful cause of action being taken against North Korea and the withdrawal of any further talks. The involvement of the North Korea in the nuclear plan and program will not be a threat to the other international nations. According to my argument I will be based on the support of North Korea’s nuclear proliferation and how it imposes no threat to the other nations by this. These nations that pushed for forceful actions taken against North Korea and abandonment of further negations and talks with it advocated for North Korea’s denuclearization.
It was the October 9 2006 North Korea’s nuclear test, actually the first, that triggered the various reactions and actions from the international nations. USA led these nations in trying to strongly control the North Korea nuclear program. This test has also forced them to scramble to find suitable solutions sanctions that suites them. This action by international nations creates room for discussions and various arguments as to why so many nations are after the denuclearization program and what their intentions might be especially when thought of from an economical point of view. Despite the actions of North...

...From the above arguments I clearly disagree with the situation of North Korea being viewed as a threat to international nations and entire world due to its nuclear weapon proliferation. There should be no forceful force of action taken against it for its in the right track of proliferation and its motives can be clearly seen.

- One of the key concerns in US-North Korea Relations is nuclear weapons and conflict. North Korea has been very open with its plans to produce an intercontinental nuclear missile that could hit the United States, and while they are thought to be years away from having that capability, concerns have been growing as North Korea has performed multiple missile tests in the recent months. Two of the most recent tests took place in the month of October, on the 9th and 19th, thought to be Musudan missiles, which are able to fly as far as 2,400 miles....

- Since their split with the South in 1945 North Korea has become increasingly isolated and has remained the greatest source of instability in the region. Labeled an axis of evil by the US, North Korea continues to alienate themselves from the international community through numerous antics. First, following their withdrawal from the non-proliferation treaty in 2003, North Korea undertook three nuclear tests in 2006, 2009, and 2013, and has now collected a nuclear arsenal despite the world’s clear message forbidding this very thing ....

- North Korea and the Nuclear Crisis Japanese surrendered to the Allies on August 15 1945, and the Cairo Declaration of December 1943 issued by the British and US leaders stated that "in due course Korea shall become free and independent". The USSR accepted the Cairo agreement, but proposals made by the USA in 1945 led to the division of Korea into two military zones: the area south of the 38th parallel line under US occupation and the northern area under the Soviet control. In 1948, after some quarrels over the type of state to be established in the Korean Peninsula, the two regions established two separated autonomous states. The North supported by the USSR established the communist Democ... [tags: South Korea, North Korea, World War II]

- Theory III: Clash of Civilizations Thirdly, the Clash of Civilizations is a theory by Samuel Huntington, which shows that the conflicts that North Korea and South Korea faces in the modern era are caused by differences. On one hand, the war was considered the clash of civilizations at one of two levels: the micro-level. It is when adjacent groups along the fault lines between civilizations struggle violently, over the control of territory and each other. It is clear that North and South Korea fought a gruesome war, and allies of both countries were involved (Huntington).... [tags: North Korea, South Korea, Korean War, Korea]

- For more than a thousand years, in the Korean Peninsula, Koreans were one; Language, civilization, history were identical. Having shared the same culture during the history of the Korean peninsula by more than a thousand years, it is natural that this half-century break ends one day. Still, some South Koreans oppose the reunification of the North and South Koreas because its cost will be immense. Given that the North Korean share in the total Korean population is larger than that of the GDR in Germany, the costs to be borne by South Korea would be relatively higher....

- The existence of two separate state entities on the Korean peninsula has provided the world with a long history of seemingly static tension. The ongoing friction between North and South Korea leaves a lot of apprehension and doubts of if a successful and peaceful unification is even possible. Looking back, it’s clear the severely divergent directions the military regimes in the north and south headed is part of the catalyst to the current state of the Korean peninsula. The division’s presence becoming increasingly obvious as South Korea economic presence strengthened, and their standing in the global sphere rose....

- There is always someone out there who has it worse. In this case, North Koreans live difficult lives. Everyday is a struggle in North Korea because they have scarce resources and live under strict government rules. Food, especially, is hard to obtain in North Korea, and the people are not fed as well as their military. North Korea is an isolated country and not many foreign people understand what goes on inside of the North Korean borders. The problem that North Korea faces is a serious problem because they are starved by the government purposefully.... [tags: North Korea, South Korea, Kim Il-sung]

- The derisive and dismissive attitudes of America and the UN regarding North Korea and Kim Jong Un combined with the imprudent beliefs by North Korea that nuclear weapons are the only way to achieve respect and sovereignty are key elements to the nuclear escalation in the region. The ideology differences between a socialist society and a democratic society taking over the after effects of the imperialism conquest of Korea by Japan are underscored in the polarized perceptions of today. After World War II, the region was stabilized between the two ideologies by allowing the US to control South Korea and instill its version of democratic society while China and Russia ruled the North with their...

- Research Paper 1- North and South Korea When most people think about North and South Korea, they think of two nations that will never be able to reconcile and be able to reunite, two nations that have been at each other’s throats for a long time. I am one of those people. In my opinion there are many reasons why they will not be able to reunite as one nation again. The first reason why I believe that these two very different nations will not be able reunite with each other is that, these nations are just two different to reunite evenly and fairly in the end....

- Since the end of the Korean War, the United States has enacted policies to isolate and undermine the Kim Dynasty in North Korea. A key development took place in the past several decades where North Korea broke away from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to develop their own nuclear weapons and while lacking launch capabilities, they have been successful in their development. During this process, the United States took active policies to deter the North Koreans in pursuit of their goals. It is easy to assume that the United States took this stance in order to maintain a military edge in the region.... [tags: Kim dynasty, North Korea, United States]
