The United States should increase its military presence in the Pacific. With the threats posed by North Korea and China, we need to increase our show of force in the Pacific.

I would first like to talk about North Korea. North Korea, a nuclear armed country that is known for its Anti-American outlook. Over the past years, many confrontations have led North Korea to make many threats to launch missile attacks on the United States and North Korea's neighbor, South Korea who is supported by the United States. On March 26, 2010 a North Korean submarine sunk the South Korean ship, Cheonan killing 46 crew and injuring 56The United States should increase its military presence in the Pacific. With the threats posed by North Korea and China, we need to increase our show of force in the Pacific. This is considered an act of war. We should enforce pressure on North Korea while protect South Korea.
