Inside Story – What to do about North Korea?


North Korea latest and biggest nuclear bomb test caused an earthquake in China and Russia – and the political shockwave has reached all around the world. Donald Trump described the north as a “rogue nation” which continues to be “very hostile and dangerous to the United States”. South Korea has started live-fire drills to ‘strongly warn’ its northern neighbour. And the UN Security Council held its second emergency meeting in a week. But stiff sanctions have already been imposed – without stopping the missiles being launched or the test bombs being detonated. So, what now? And does a military response risk the beginning of another world war?
