As tense as the standoff with North Korea has already become, it could get worse. South Korea believes the regime of Kim Jong-un is planning another missile launch within a few days. The test launch of what some suspect will be an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the United States could come this Saturday. That’s the anniversary of North Korea’ s founding, and Kim Jong-un may want to show off

his ability to target the United States with nuclear weapons. United States UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told a special meeting of the Security Council Monday, “The stakes could not be higher. The urgency is now.” “Nuclear powers understand the responsibilities, Kim Jong-un shows no such understanding. His abusive use of missiles and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war,” Haley said. MORE
