America is ready and the time is right to invade North Korea


Brodie Deshaies, Crier Staff

The United States has the world’s most powerful and most well-funded military. We have been the world’s policeman since the establishment of the United Nations in 1945, and we doubled down on our new role with the establishment of the Truman Doctrine in 1947.

The United States has protected free markets, and has freed people all around the world since the end of World War II. We have fought communists, terrorists, and despots everywhere. We have proudly done so spreading democracy and protecting human rights.

However, right now, the United States is not addressing a major global threat. The threat I speak of is a nation run by a deranged potbelly communist who treats his people worse than famed dictator Joseph Stalin treated his Russian comrades. This global threat is Kim’s Korea.

North Korea is an extreme danger to world peace and global stability. North Korea has been working for countless months and years towards obtaining nuclear ballistic missiles.

It seems the United States and the rest of the global community has allowed North Korea to develop nuclear missiles without any hindrance. The United States and the rest of the world have done nothing except add more economic sanctions (which has not stopped North Korea in the past, and will not stop them now).

Currently though, Kim Jong-un claims that his nuclear weapons can now reach America. Whether or not North Korea has the technology to launch miniaturized nuclear warheads on a missile, and how far these missiles can actually reach, is still unclear. Nonetheless, a nuclear North Korea is still dangerous for everyone around the world, and it adds unneeded stress and strain on global politics.

Additionally, Kim Jong-un is insane enough to threaten nations with nuclear missiles, and to even use them if provoked, or possibly even use them unprovoked (he is mentally unstable, I wouldn’t put past him).

To allow such an unpredictable regime to obtain such powerful weapons is irresponsible of the United States and the rest of the world.

Kim Jong-un has also been exposed for his many crimes against humanity. The North Korean regime starves its people, and overworks the malnourished masses. In the regime’s eyes, the North Korean people are nothing but slaves to the state, and only good for one thing: cheap labor.

North Korean people don’t have any protected rights. If anyone speaks against the government they are put into a political prisoner camp, and worked until death.

The poor North Korean people are oppressed and can do nothing about it. They are ignored by the nations of the world, and have been left to fend for themselves against the unstoppable beast that is the North Korean regime.

The saddest part is that the Korean people have been brainwashed into believing their states lies, and they don’t realize how much better their lives truly could be without the Kim regime.

North Korea has been reported for being a massive producer of opium, and distributing deadly drugs around the world. The drugs that kill many of our friends and family members here in America can be linked back to the disgusting Kim regime.

North Korea also illegally distributes weapons throughout the world, selling ballistic missiles and weapons to other despots and tyrants, and quite possibly even to terrorist groups.

Lastly, it is reported that the North Korean regime is a major part of the world’s human trafficking crisis.

North Korea is an evil menace that can be compared to Nazi Germany, or Stalin’s U.S.S.R. The only issue is that life is quite possibly worse in North Korea than in those the previously named places.

It is time for the United States to take a more active role against North Korea. It’s time for us lead the rest of the global community on a crusade against North Korea, in the name of world peace and human rights.

It is time to end the reign of the maniacal, blood lusting tyrant, the wretched Kim Jong-un. It is time to liberate the Korean people, and prevent the horrible atrocities the Kim regime inflicts upon its people, and the world community.

It is time to stop the North Korean development of nuclear armaments, to protect stability throughout the world, and to protect the United States homeland from a possible nuclear strike.

This ultimately means it is time for the United States to lead a global coalition, invade North Korea, and forcibly remove the Kim regime.

There is no way Kim Jong-un’s insane antics, and horrible atrocities end, unless he is indefinitely dead, and his regime is destroyed. We must create a new government for the North Korean people, and introduce them to democracy.

As the world’s policeman, and guardian of human rights and democracy, the United States needs to stop delaying. To quote Niccolo Machiavelli: “war cannot be avoided; it can only be postponed to the other’s advantage.”

The longer we wait, America, the more time we give the Kim regime to prepare and to bolster its firepower. As King Henry exclaimed in Shakespeare’s Henry V, “once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.” The time to act is now, America, while we still can.
