Trump and China could still fall out badly over trade

North Korea's recent missile test poses a grave threat to the world, and a stern test for President Trump. North Korea exploded its first nuclear device in 2006 - since then it has detonated at least six more.

The North's state-run Rodong newspaper accused Washington and Seoul of ratcheting up tensions with the drill, in an editorial titled "Don't play with fire on a powder keg". -South Korea military exercises in the region in exchange for North Korea suspending its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

While most Americans celebrated the 4th of July with fireworks, North Korea had their version of fireworks by testing a new ballistic missile- believed to be an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach targets in the continental United States.

Ko Jae-hong, a South Korean analyst with government-run Institute for National Security Strategy, said Wednesday the possibility North Korea is trying to obstruct improvements in China-South Korea relations can not be ruled out, News 1 reported.

For decades, United States policy has been predicated on the idea that the North Korean regime is about to collapse.

"In Australia, the United States and South Korea, roughly three-quarters or more say they have unfavorable views", the center said.

China is North Korea's only major diplomatic ally and economic partner, and the US and others have called on Beijing to use whatever leverage it has to pressure North Korea into curbing nuclear tests and missile launches that violate United Nations sanctions. The problem, though, is that caution and forbearance have been the basis for policy towards North Korea for several generations, and the North Koreans have gotten the message, loud and clear, that they can do anything, to anyone, and get away with it.

North Korea's ruthless dictator is sending tens of thousands of his own impoverished people to Russian Federation to earn money for his regime, according to Fox News. Since there is little prospect of achieving this goal by continued posturing and issuance of sanctions, there are only two ways that President Trump can make the world safe from North Korea.

"There is no military solution to the threat of a nuclear North Korea", said Markey who is the ranking Democrat on the East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Subcommittee.

The impoverished, isolated country has staged five nuclear tests - including two a year ago - and has made a significant progress in its missile capability under Kim, who took power in 2011.

Sanctions are fine, but what about the Chinese who depend on trade with North Korea?

The Chinese never had the ability to tell North Korea what to do.

The official said that South Korea is taking an approach of "strategic patience" in pursuing the compete dismantlement of the North's nuclear program and establishment of a peace regime.
