Might is right: There is no one superpower in the world anymore

North Korea Military

North Korea is working to enhance its military capabilities.

Might is right, it is today’s world. It seems that there is no one superpower in the world anymore to make major decisions (“N.Korea’s Kim orders stronger strike power; US seizes cargo ship,” May 9, Gulf Today).

It is really dangerous and shocking news that the leader of North Korea ordered its military to boost its strike capability as he directed another missile firing. This while tensions grew over tests that appeared to show preparations for a new advanced missile system.

The call for “full combat posture” by Kim Jong Un came while the United States announced it had seized a large cargo ship for carrying an illegal shipment of coal. The increased tensions come amid a gridlock in dialogue after the second summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump collapsed over US demands for Pyongyang’s nuclear disarmament and Kim’s demands for relief from punishing sanctions. “(Kim) stressed the need to further increase the capability of the defence units in the forefront area and on the western front to carry out combat tasks and keep full combat posture to cope with any emergency,” KCNA news agency reported.

Today in the world the situation is so bad and tense, every country wants to show its strength, but does not think of the humanitarian crisis that could happen if there is war between two countries.

The world has suffered a lot of terrorism. I would like to appeal to the leaders of powerful countries to work together for the peace and prosperity of the world.
