North Korea tests us again

Daily Express - - NEWS -

AN­OTHER mis­sile test by North Korea just days af­ter the UN im­posed sanc­tions on the rogue state has cre­ated fresh alarm world­wide. It was fired over Ja­pan and led to air-raid sirens sound­ing which sent fright­ened civil­ians head­ing for bomb shel­ters.

The dan­gers of this sit­u­a­tion es­ca­lat­ing are ob­vi­ous and fright­en­ing. It doesn’t help mat­ters that the US is de­mand­ing that China does some­thing while China says that the US is shirk­ing its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Mean­while Rus­sia con­demns “ag­gres­sive” US rhetoric.

There has to be a united front if the mad­man in Py­ongyang is go­ing to pay any at­ten­tion. As it is he must be re­joic­ing in the chaos and con­fu­sion that he has cre­ated.

It is vi­tal that no coun­try takes uni­lat­eral ac­tion against North Korea. That would be far too dan­ger­ous. The world’s most pow­er­ful na­tions must watch and wait and act with ex­treme cau­tion.
