Improved Essays

This creates a problem for all country’s simply because this establishes the question, “Is there a certain point in which the Country should intervene and disrupt sovereignty in another community.” Basically, there are certain points in which some things might happen, resulting in the United States needing to respond. However, we must keep in mind that our actions will affect our power struggle, and the respect that other countries have for the United States of America. In the article that I found (Burrows 2017,1) there is an ongoing problem in international waters, in which a Spanish …show more content…
They have found this hatred mainly from the cold war. This started in the year of 1950 and it ended in 1953 this ended up splitting Korea into North and South Korea. King John Un has a fear that the United States are going to disrupt their sovereignty because they are a community that is run by Communism. However, this is not true the United States does not want to fight because they do not see the reason being fit. However, North Korea has recently been threating us with their nuclear capabilities that can supposedly reach the U.S. mainland’s. This is having an impact on the worlds international relations. International relations are the relationship between states governments and the connection to actors and social and geographical influences. Recently North Korea has released the fact that they have enough power to release a hydrogen bomb in the top of a missile. This is a perfect example because the North Koreans know they should not be able to have nuclear power yet they flaunt their power and threaten the United States. This violent conflict has caused problems amongst various country’s such as South Korea and China has had to reason with the U.S. to talk about how to address the problem with North Korea. This type of Realism shows that King John Un cares about nothing but power and how the rest of the world will view him and his …show more content…

    And even if we never go to war with our weapons, Worldwide transgressions and arguments are solved easier because they know of our power. On the other hand people who believe our nuclear weapons should be dismantled state their view that nuclear weapons only cause problems.

    In turn, “the next American president will have to decide what to do about” the issue with North Korea. Rational appeals allow the audience to understand how it is not logical for North Korea to get nuclear weapons and the dangers a nuclear North Korea presents. Both South Korean and American officials fear that Kim Jong-un is rapidly trying to obtain “nuclear weapons and missile capability to attack his neighbors, and also the United States.” However, with the “installation of the U.S. THAAD missile-defense system” it would be easier to “[deter] the North militarily,” which could also affect North Korea’s ability to obtain nuclear weapons and attack. Emotional appeals, especially with the use of powerful, negative diction, evoke a sense of fear and concern in the audience. Ignatius includes how South Korean officials use phrases such as, “existential threat,” “imminent danger,” and “dagger at the throat” to describe the issues with North Korea.…

    The difference between them; however, is how they present the idea of why we would use the atomic bomb in this circumstance. Document B, leaves the ending more open, letting the reader infer why we would drop the bomb. The author, a commander in the air force, would have known the true reasons, but yet again, like Truman, does not want to scare the public. He ends his argument in saying that “atomic bomb or no atomic bomb, the Japanese were already on the verge of collapse.” He wants the reader to understand what he is saying, which is that the U.S.A. was strictly doing this to scare Soviet Russia. Document F on the other hand, written by a physicist states this fact blatantly, that we need to do this to scare the Soviet Union.…
