Tougher sanc­tions would stop Korea

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

THE world awaits the re­sponse from Amer­ica, af­ter they have been re­peat­edly threat­ened by the fla­grant abuse of power from the dic­ta­tor in North Korea.

Weak US Pres­i­dents Clin­ton and Obama had al­lowed the sit­u­a­tion in Korea to de­te­ri­o­rate this far with­out im­pos­ing mean­ing­ful sanc­tions which might have cur­tailed Kim Jong- il and Kim Jong- un and Korea’s nu­clear am­bi­tions.

In­stead, the world is in a far more dan­ger­ous po­si­tion. Af­ter only six months in of­fice, and be­cause of his pre­de­ces­sors’ in­ac­tion, Pres­i­dent Trump has been left in a sit­u­a­tion that now re­quires ur­gent ac­tion.

What­ever is de­cided, may I be the first in your pages to say that the sit­u­a­tion in North Korea and Iran is all their fault, and will be recorded as their legacy. Phil Rigby, Yard­ley Wood
