North Korea is a country that has nuclear weapons, is actively testing them, and is continuously threatening the United States and South Korea with attack. Iran does not have nuclear weapons, does not have a sufficient quantity of enriched uranium to even plan a test, is a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and its supreme religious leader issued a religious order (Fatwa) banning nuclear weapons.
While the world is worked up into a frenzy against Iran (largely by the influence of Israel), North Korea has upped the ante, threatening to pull out of the truce that ended hostilities of the Korean Conflict, pull their representative from the Peace Village at Panmunjom, and cut the military hot-line that exists between North Korea and the U.S.
North Korea is taking this step, apparently, because its main ally China has reportedly reached an agreement with the U.S. to vote for increased UN sanctions. China has now come to realize the threat North Korea represents following their third nuclear weapons test.
It’s time for the world to open their eyes, stop focusing on a perceived threat, and start paying attention to a situation that has the potential to literally explode. If North Korea is not taken seriously, Seoul could become the next Hiroshima.
