So, at the same time as the Space Shuttle launches, North Korea fires off not one, but three or possibly four missles in an apparant test of their nuclear capabilities.
There had been some serious diplomatic rhetoric from the U.S., Japan, China and South Korea. What will be the immediate fallout from this? What does the U.S. do, if anything? Do we work through our allies in the area? What do they do?
It seems to me that we are as close to a nuclear conflict right now as we have been since India-Pakistan, if not the Cuban Missle Crisis.
