North Korea’s Kim Jong Un has been trying to intimidate the U.S. and its allies with multiple missile launches in recent months. The latest incident involved an intercontinental ballistic missile launch that was launched last week into Japan’s Exclusive Economic Zone. The U.S. and South Korea responded by conducting a missile test of their own.
In a statement issued on July 4, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called North Korea’s ICBM "a new escalation of the threat to the United States, our allies and partners, the region, and the world."
Can we really intimidate Kim Jong Un with our own missile launches? Jeffy Fisher asked a tough question on this week’s episode of “The Jeff Fisher Show.”
While America’s military and U.S. allies are prepared to retaliate quickly, a lot of lives will inevitably be lost if North Korea actually attacks. People who value human rights will try to avoid that scenario, but the North Korean regime doesn’t fit that category.
“While we care about that, I don’t think [Kim Jong Un] does,” Jeffy said.
