Following North Korea’s missile launch over Japan, tensions are high.

Nobody seems to know what the secluded nation’s next move will be.

But North Korea just dropped some terrifying news about who their next target will be.

North Korea’s missile launch over Japan changed the tone when it comes to dealing with the communist country.

In the past, they have given warnings before missile tests.

But none was given before this test, making it fully clear that North Korea is not interested in any diplomatic relations with non-allies.

And to make that more clear, they put out a terrifying threat.

North Korea’s state media just stated they are looking to attack the U.S. territory of Guam.

As reported by CNN:

“North Korea’s launch of a missile over Japan was a prelude to more military operations directed at the American territory of Guam, North Korean state media warned Wednesday.

The country’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported leader Kim Jong Un presided over the dawn launch Tuesday of the “ultra-modern rocket system,” the first missile ever fired from the capital Pyongyang.

North Korean officials told CNN in Pyongyang that Kim was “very satisfied with the performance of the missile.”

The intermediate-range missile, identified by the North Koreans as the Hwasong-12, flew over Japan, further fueling tensions between North Korea and the United States and its allies, Japan and South Korea.

Early Wednesday, the US conducted a test intercept of a medium range ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii, according to a statement from the US Missile Defense Agency.

A US official told CNN the test was planned for a long time, before North Korea’s launch.”

It is clear the near-attack on Japan wasn’t really about Japan.

It was a way for North Korea to “flex their muscles” and show the world they are a threat.

President Trump appears to be very close to using military action to deal with North Korea.

The United States, along with the Japanese government, is working to implement their last attempt at diplomatic relations.

They are planning on implementing an oil embargo on North Korea.

The embargo would cripple the nation, and while it appears to be the best option on the table, it would likely lead towards a violent response from North Korea.

Just having drastic actions like the embargo on the table will likely also lead Russia and China, who are both allies of North Korea, to finally take some action to reign in the dangerous actions of Kim Jong Un.

If diplomatic attempts to deal with North Korea don’t succeed, World War III could be on the horizon.

A strike or attempted strike on Guam would likely end up being the final straw.

What do you think? Can North Korea be reasoned with?
