What Happens If the UK Gets Caught in the Nuclear Crossfire?

North Korea


Tensions on the Korean peninsula are already incredibly tense, and Trump's statement that the US can bring "fire and fury" against North Korea only adds to this fragility. Trump has two options: he either follows through and escalates when North Korea next provokes, or he steps back and risks looking weak both in the eyes of North Korea and to his allies. That is not to say that nuclear war is necessarily imminent, but the fragility of the situation should not be underestimated, and stepping back from such open threats is the best way to diffuse tensions.
