President Donald Trump has vowed that there will never be a repeat of the 1969 incidence ever again. North Korea was accused of shooting down a Navy spy plane but the U.S did not react in a strong way to the matter. The American leader is determined to protect America and its diverse possessions and is willing to do all that it takes.
Four months earlier before the unfortunate incidence, North Korea had proceed to capture the USS Pueblo spy ship which held about 80 crewmen hostage.The Preflight intelligence reports had brought it to the limelight that most of the North Koreans were much agitated by the snooping.
That wasn’t the first time that the plane had flown over the Sea of Japan.On this fateful day, the plane had flown for about five hours when two North Korean MiGs stepped in the scene taking away the lives of about 31 crew members.
Several years later saw President Richard M. Nixon ascend to power. The leader did not indicate any signs of retaliating and the passage of time saw the matter forgotten by almost everyone. Trump on Tuesday brought the matter to life yet again in a major speech in South Korea. He was assertive declaring that a repeat of such an incidence would be met by the American government with force.
The relations between the Superpower and North Korea are even worse at the moment and the constant brawl isn’t about to come to a halt. The American leader said that the passage of time and all that came with it had enlightened them in a great way on the high cost of weakness. He called upon North Korea not to underestimate America and trying it would a terrible mistake on the part of that country.
A top government official opined, “In recent months, with North Korea girding for war – conducting frequent missile tests, threatening to shoot down U.S. planes, trading insults with President Trump – historians and national security analysts have been reexamining the 1969 attack.”
