Voted positive. NK's nuclear status has been a fait accompli for a while. Best we can do is increase and make the most of the diplomatic and strategic discomfiture it is going to cause a number of players in the region: China, Pakistan, South Korea, Japan, the US and Russia.

What happens if North Korea launches a "nuclear attack" against international waters, not too far from Guam?
