Well, now their much vaunted new missile has failed Kim Jong-un will have lost face, not a good thing in that part of the world and especially for one regarded as a near deity.

Will it shut him up? Will the failure be due to the Americans, somehow? Will it make matters better, worse or just postpone things?

We live in interesting times...

Conspiracy theory now has it that the US are hacking NK's missile launch systems to cause the failures . . .
(Commentator on BBC news)

The Daily Express (nearly as reliable as the Daily Mail) says

Though the NYT has this to say.

NK is a problem that will have to be dealt with decisively, and the sooner the better.  The longer we wait the more the more weapons they will have. The trajectory is not in our favor.

The same could be said about Donald Trump's America.

The trajectory of Donald Trump's America is 4 years long.  Then something can be done about it, if not sooner, through legal means.  Not the same in NK.  And if you are comparing America with NK, not much I can do to help.

Something legal will only happen if the Republicans lose the majority of seats.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
