Iran government officials have come out boasting that it can now produce a nuclear bomb that can threaten the United States. So what have we learned over all the years with these with embargos and massive money drops on airstrips in foreign countries? We saw what happened to North Korea when we blocked it’s harbors and stopped almost all products from entering North Korea. But when we found out that North Korea went to a few countries like Iran and passed on the knowledge of how to make the nuclear bombs. That allowed North Korea to play wargame with their missiles, shooting them over Japan into the ocean, threatening to attack the United States.
It took then-President Trump to commit to peace on the Korean peninsula, offering to actually make friends with Kim Jong-Un their leader of North Korea, and even becoming the first president in history to step onto North Korea territory when he met with Kim at the former Friendship Square dividing the two Koreas. But since President Biden has come into office, the relationship has undergone a complete 180, and now we are not only at the brink of war with China (over Taiwan), Russia (over Ukraine), and Iran, but North Korea (who may be subtly working in conjunction with Chinese pressure) is now increasing their belligerence, particularly with Japan so nearby. Very troubling.
