My opinion on North Korea’s power…

North Korea is around 46,540 square miles, and has a population of around 24 million(2008 Census)…

Before I begin this post, let me just mention that this post is primarily based on my own intelligence and experience. Anyhow, ever since North Korea has been in the news from Nuclear Weapons testings and from North Korean soldiers hopping the DMZ, they have been a non-stop trending topic on multiple platforms. But the real issue is, how big of a threat is North Korea? Well based on my opinion, North Korea is a serious threat to its surroundings and ultimately the world.

Why is NK a threat?

North Korea is an undeniable threat to the world for a few primary factors… These factors primarily deal with the fact of North Korea’s location, and its military capabilities…

North Korea’s Location

North Korea is currently located north of South Korea, but who knows in a Nuclear war, right? Anyways, North Korea is around 46,540 square miles, and although it has 1.21 million troops on active duty, I believe its location plays a larger role in its world power. North Korea is conveniently located close to Japan and more importantly South Korea, both of which are U.S. allies. With little to no notice, I believe North Korea currently has the abilities to launch a weapon of mass destruction to one of its close neighboring countries capable of doing .

This poses as a threat to the entire world because attacking [lets say] South Korea would effect not only itself, it would affect all of it’s allies which include the U.S., thus effecting all of the U.S.’s allies and causing a massive chain reaction…

NorthΒ  Korea’s Military Power

Although North Korea is closed off from the rest of the world, it still has an army no one would dear play with… With this being said, North Korea currently has 1.21 million troops on active duty and has about 600,000 troops on reserve. This army may seem relatively small to some, but the 1.21 million troops on active duty is the fourth largest in the world.

But, the primary scare factor here is nuclear weapons. Yes, that’s right… North Korea has been testing and developing its nuclear for a good while now, and they may have finally reached the abilities to launch missiles carrying nuclear warheads… Even though if North Korea were to launch a weapon of such sort, the U.S. is most likely capable of instantly reacting with a counter-attack wiping North Korea off the map…

Nevertheless, North Korea is still capable of seriously injuring/killing a lot of people, which is the real problem here…

TL;DR

Basically, North Korea has the capabilities to cause a lot of harm thanks to its unique location and its military power…
