Why North Korea Is Testing Missiles

Why North Korea Is Testing Missiles(Source thetrumpet.com) It is no secret that China and Russia support the North Korean regime: They routinely use their UN veto power to protect it, and even when sanctions are passed against it, they violate them to help the North. This gives China and Russia heavy influence over North Korea’s foreign policy. It is also no secret that China and Russia share the goal of ousting U.S. power from East Asia, including the presence of some 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea and some 54,000 in Japan. North Korea’s short-range missile tests could easily be a calculated effort by China and Russia to weaken America’s alliances with Japan and South Korea. They know President Trump has strong motivation to downplay them, and they know how badly this will worry Japan and South Korea. South Korea and Japan have been seriously considering expelling U.S. troops. Both have boosted their own military power, partly to make them less reliant on outside help. President Trump has also voiced his displeasure with how much America pays to safeguard Japan and South Korea. Strains were already present in these U.S.-Asian alliances, and each North Korean short-range missile test strikes not only its target, but those strained relationships. The North Korea crisis is a massive distraction from the real threat posed by China and Russia. In his booklet The Prophesied ‘Prince of Russia,’ Mr. Flurry shows that this Asian confederacy will play a key role in the most violent conflict in mankind’s history. But he also shows that these developments are tied to unprecedentedly good news. At the end of this conflict, he writes, Christ will usher in “a peaceful and prosperous new age for the entire Earth!”
