Let the Games Begin…With Fire and Fury?

As arguments arise among the U.S. and North Korea and new missiles are being tested, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is watching from afar, for now. The 2018 Winter Olympics are planning to be held 50 miles across the border of North Korea, but with the missile testing the IOC is having to monitor the situation. Trump has threatened North Korea by saying they “will be met with fire and fury” if any word of harming is brought upon the U.S. The leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, has made threats to fire missiles at Guam, which happens to be home to 163,000 citizens. These heated situations all may have an impact on the upcoming Olympics.

“There is no reason to be too worried at the moment. We are five or six months away from the Olympics. We are monitoring the situation carefully. Of course if the tensions escalate, we’ll need to adapt. But Pyeongchang is ready to host the games,” says the France Olympic Committee president, Denis Masselgia. The county of Pyeongchang is located somewhere in the Taebaek Mountains region. As of now, it is safe to travel to South Korea and there are no warnings against it.

Trump and Kim recently butted heads and Trump fired a threatening response back at him about the missile firings. Trump sent a powerful message to defend America saying North Korea will experience fire, fury and power “like the world has never seen.” He repeats himself to clearly get his word and idea out there. Some members of Congress are now questioning the authority of the president when it comes to his ability to strike first.

Between President Trump’s fiery words and the flaming missiles being tested by North Korea, things are pretty heated in the U.S. and Korea. The IOC is keeping a close eye on the situation just in case it gets too out of hand and the Olympics may take place somewhere else. Also with a target on our back, the U.S. has to be ready for anything. Things are still going according to plan with the Olympics, but there is so much that can change from now until then.
