United States Anti-Missile Defense in South Korea:
As more tension develops between America and North Korea, including the current missile test launches, the United States has produced a new anti-missile defense system. This new system is called the “THAAD,” which stands for “Terminal High Altitude Area Defense.” A part of the problem transpired because Donald Trump wanted South Korea to pay for the expenses of the system, which is estimated to cost at least $1 billion dollars. South Korea had already told its citizens that the United States would pay for the systems operation and maintenance, as long as South Korea provided land and support infrastructure.
