The U.S. airstrikes against a Syrian airbase on Friday may mean North Korea could also be at risk of American military action, experts said.

Daily Beast columnist and author Gordon Chang speculates the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un will go into hiding following the attacks as he realizes President Donald Trump is sending a clear warning against nuclear weapons and intercontinental missiles.

In a statement to Fox News, Chang said the strikes ‘tells North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un that he must now heed American military power, something that he probably dismissed before.’

Chang noted that previous leader and Jong-un’s father Kim Jong Il also disappeared from the public for about six weeks around the time of the war in Iraq.

The airstrikes also send a message to Chinese leader Xi Jinping, whom Trump met with at Mar-a-Lago on Friday. Chang said the People’s Liberation Army has also grown dismissive towards the U.S. military and that Jinping may have interpreted the missile launch as a sign of disrespect.

The White House National Security Council has drawn up North Korea options for President Trump that involve killing the country’s erratic dictator Kim Jong-un and reinserting U.S. nuclear weapons into South Korea.
