The latest missile launch by North Korea is causing more alarm bells to ring - especially in the United States. The north says the missile was bigger and more powerful than previous launches this year - and is capable of striking anywhere in the U.S. Even more worrying for America and its allies, the North Korean leadership declared dreams of becoming a nuclear state have finally been realised. The White House is demanding China do more to contain the North Korean regime. And Donald Trump describing Kim Jong Un as "little rocket man" is doing little to ease fears of a nuclear showdown.
