Saber-Rattling - North Korea Bluffs on the Brink of Possible War

Showcasing its military hardware to celebrate the 105 anniversary of the birth of its founding president, Kim II-sung, North Korea continues to promise more nuclear testing of weaponry despite a firm show of might from United States(US) President Donald Trump, who once vowed to tackle North Korea, alone. 

The Trump administration has positioned an aircraft carrier and addition naval systems closer to the Korean peninsula in light of on-going weaponry testing by North Korea's portly leader, Kim Jong-un. He has vowed to continue testing of a delivery system for far-reaching nuclear weapons. The tense war-atmosphere over Korea comes from Jong-un's perceived craziness matched by Trump's desire to appear strong.

Today's military show case by Pyongyang took place amid speculation that Jong-un could order a new nuclear test, the BBC-News reported. But in spite of saber-rattling on the peninsula, it is doubtful that the North Korean would attempt any new nuclear testing while a trigger-happy Trump seeks a scenario to affirm his resolve to respond to any threats to US national security interests. 

Although Trump appears to have softened his earlier tone of dealing with North Korea alone since hinting at getting Chinese help and consultation with the international community, before any action, Pyongyang did not seize its patriotic moment to test any new weaponry at today's military parade. Thus Jong-un is bluffing about any new nuclear test in spite of rhetoric from his second-in-command, Choe Ryong-hae, who has declared: "We're prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war;" the BBC-News reported. He added: "We are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks."

However, barring any stupid action from North Korea, the present saber-rattling on the Korean peninsula  has reached a peak from which a calming effect should now ensue, for peace-sake.
