Last week’s KQED Do Now investigated North Korea’s threat to attack their neighbors and even the United States. In recent years, North Korea has made several threats to develop and deploy nuclear weapons on countries like South Korea, Japan, and even the United States. These type of threats were never met with major concern as it seemed clear that North Korea was not close to building weapons grade nuclear materials nor had the capability to fire long range missiles outside its border. Well, things have changed.

Students’ responses to North Korea’s warning varied greatly in terms of how the US should respond and whether the threat is crebible. Below are some of their ideas.
