Recently North Korea launched an Intercontinental ballistic missile or ICBM test.  This builds off of North Korea’s previous missile test.  It also represents a new danger to countries around the world.  It will be interesting to see how the United States and others react.  I am wondering if military action will need to be taken instead of more sanctions.
