As a response to Pyongyang’s provocative nuclear bomb test on Sunday, South Korea launched rockets in live-fire drills, the BBC reported. The drills displayed South Korea’s military force that is always ready for any eventuality. Now that the tensions in the Korean Peninsula have escalated, military leaders of the South feared that Pyongyang is now preparing for another launch of ballistic missiles.

The H-bomb test that created ‘man-made quake’

North Korea’s nuclear bomb test on Sunday angered one of its allies, President Xi Jinping. China was hosting the meeting of the BRICS group when news of the H-bomb test in Kilju County overshadowed a very important gathering of the leaders of some of the world’s most dynamic economies.

Apparently, the North’s leader would want to embarrass China and undercut President Xi’s leadership.

The strength of the hydrogen bomb was approximately 50 kilotons. Sunday’s H-bomb test created a ‘man-made quake, shaking the houses in China’s northeast region and reviving the inhabitants’ fear of nuke contamination.

While the rest of the nations fear another launch of an ICBM, the U.S. declared that Kim Jong-un’s regime is obviously asking for war. And it might soon get what it wants if the communist country still continues its missile tests.

On Monday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the Security Council members in a meeting that the American government has had enough of North Korea’s indiscriminate H-bomb test. She stressed out that the U.S. does not resort to war in resolving conflict, but its patience on North Korea is becoming slimmer by the moment.

According to South Korean top military officials, there are already hints that North Korea is already beefing up for another launch. They believed that the communist regime already has a miniaturized nuke weapon that fits into an ICBM.

The US Defense Secretary made an announcement that they will have a “massive military response" if North Korea goes on with its threats to other countries, especially to the United States and its allies. However, Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Secretary thought that a peaceful diplomatic solution needs to be done over a military strike.
