North Korea has been rattling their sabers for quite some time now. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un may be crazy but he’s not stupid. He knows what these little acts of aggression mean and there is a purpose behind it.
North Korea has faced sanctions due to nuclear tests and Kim Jong-un has responded over the last month by firing short range missiles all in an effort to show the world it can be done.
North Korea is believed to have between 10 and 20 nuclear warheads, but its long-range missile capabilities remain uncertain.
The latest was a missile that was launched and flew about 124 miles before it came down. This kind of move can easily be construed as a warning to South Korea and neighboring Japan.
How should the US respond to these threats by North Korea?
