Running head: POLITICAL SCIENCE 1 Political Science Name Institutional Affiliation Abstract Nuclear weapons have the ability to turn cities into useless ashes within no minute. In a global community, it’s of value that these harmful devices are kept out of reach of irrational and unstable leaders. The increasing growth of North Koreas nuclear program indicates a complete disregard for UN resolutions.

When the United States got this information, it was like a shock to them because they had always attempted to halt highly enriched uranium program in North Korea since 2002 when they realized that North Korea had that program ( Bradford et al., 2015). Despite the self-admission by North Korea that they had nuclear weapons in 2005, there have been lots of information with the South Korean unification minister, Chung declaring that "it could not be independently verified". In 2009, North Korea did their first test of nuclear bomb that was accompanied by a long-range ballistic missile. This has led to several tensions, later giving a statement in 2008 saying that they should be handled and treated by the united states "as (they) would India" is a nuclear power which is legitimate not to be discounted or trifled with.
