     As 2,000 troops from U.S. and South Korea engage in a live-fire drill close to the demilitarized zone, the tensions between the communist and the capitalist countries continue to rise which could possibly lead to World War III.

    The background of the tensions between the countries started on the evening of April 7, 2017. The U.S. military attacked a Syrian-government airfield with 59 Tomahawk missiles on the Shayrat Air Base, which the U.S. said was the source of the chemical attack.

     President Trump justified launching the missiles because ” …Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.”

Tensions between America and Russia are beginning to boil. While the Trump administration threatens more pressure and possibly more missile strikes, Syria’s ally, Russia, is calling the assault an “act of aggression” that didn’t just damage an airfield, but U.S.-Russia relations as well.

     South Korea announced  on April 26 that it had installed key parts of a contentious U.S. missile defense system.  The South’s unveiling of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system(THAAD) came as U.S. warships converged on the Korean Peninsula.

     What caused this stur of firepower events was on April 25, when live-fire drills took place in Wonsan, North Korea.

     North Korea shot off their missiles to mark the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army founding, according to North Korean State Media.
