Dear North Korea, Let's Settle This Like Men refers to a series of image macros that humorously assert that the tensions between the United States and North Korea regarding the latter's controversial nuclear weapons program could be resolved by playing a video game.
In August 2017, tensions between the United States and North Korea rose due to reports that the North Korean government led by Kim Jong Un had developed a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the U.S. mainland. Following a response from U.S. President Donald Trump, North Korea then threatened to strike the U.S. territory of Guam.
On August 8th, 2017, Twitter  user @Shelg0n posted a picture of the GameCube video game Super Smash Bros. Melee. They captioned the tweet "Dear North Korea, Enough is enough, send your best player and we'll settle this like men." The post (shown below) received more than 35,000 retweets and 72,000 likes in less than a week.
The initial tweet has been shared numerous times by various meme accounts on Twitter. However, the first variation of the meme occurred the following day. Twitter user @BiggerShaun321 posted an image of the Rust map from the video game Call of Duty with the caption "Dear North Korea, We dont need war, just send your best players and we can settle it here." The post (shown below) received more than 10 retweets and 20 likes. However, when shared by the account @LucidRoxsur, the tweet received more than 270 retweets and 500 likes. The tweet was a variation of a popular meme regarding rappers Meek Mill and Drake.
Over the next few days, other people on Twitter posted the image of a different video game or other activity, with the caption being some variation on "Dear North Korea…Let's settle this like men." The joke of these tweets played on the idea that a video game would be the most civilized way to solve nuclear proliferation.
