In the news: North Korea

Throughout history, the United States is the only country that has used the atomic bomb. The intensity of the damage was something that the world had never seen before. Luckily, the rest of the world had never learned from the United State's mistake, and no other nuclear weapons have never been used. However, North Korea is now threatening us with with their nuclear arsenal. I believe that this should be a more important issue than what the United States is making of it. In the past, North Korea has shown itself to be a tough, ruthless country that is mainly focused on maintaining its reputation. Therefore, I believe that there is a somewhat significant possibility that North Korea will at least attempt to follow through with its threats.
I have seen pictures making a parody of North Korea and it's leader, Kim Jong Il. Nobody else seems to have realized the possibility of danger that we are facing, and the government's apparent lack of caring. Even with as much news coverage of the threats, I have not heard anything about the governmental response. The government seems to believe it is a joke, just like the general American. I believe others should care more about this, because the future of
the United States could be changed dramatically, based on our response to the threats. Even though there is not very much the average American can do to help with this, I feel that the government can help resolve this issue by responding more actively, instead of what they are currently doing.
