The U.N. Security Council is holding an emergency session on Wednesday afternoon in response to North Korea’s latest missile launch. While analysis of North Korea’s latest innovations for nuclear warheads and delivery systems is underway, many questions remain unanswered. Why is China being backed into a corner by the North Korean regime, and how can Russia and China expect the United States to cease military exercises with its Allies in the region while North Korea continues to “flaunt” its missile program as a prelude to war? North Korea cannot even feed its people, but rather than seek economic aid, it shakes its fist at the west.
