The officials say Trump is "frustrated" that his repeated demands for China to unilaterally solve North Korea, and that moving against Chinese businesses will be an expression of his frustration, expecting that it might convince China to do more. The sanctions are meant to apply meaningful pressure on a government which is all but single-handedly propping up a regime that threatens South Korea, Japan, and the United States with nuclear destruction.

Yesterday's drill, created to "sternly respond" to potential missile launches by the North, saw two U.S. bombers destroy "enemy" missile batteries and South Korean jets mount precision strikes against underground command posts.

This outcome echoes analyses suggesting President Moon would be much more of a pragmatist than idealist in his approach toward Pyongyang.
In his latest piece, Crispin describes potential consequences of two fundamentally different futures: one where the Trump administration tolerates Pyongyang's crossing of the ICBM threshold, bringing it a step closer to possessing a capability to launch nuclear strikes on the us homeland, and one where Washington acts militarily to destroy the North Korean nuclear arsenal.
