North Korea Tests Five Missiles
This past weekend, North Korea fired five short-range missiles off its coast as a demonstration of its improving missile technology. The development of these missiles would be able to more effectively target miltary bases in South Korea. According to some United States and South Korean sources, North Korea is attempting to construct a nuclear warhead capable of fitting inside an intercontinental balistic missile. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un states that these are simply military exercises, and has tried to bargin with the United States, attempting to trade a temporary pause in nuclear tests for a suspension of the annual military demonstrations conducted by the U.S. and South Korea.

Should the U.S. be worried about these tests?
Should any action be taken by the U.S. or other countries regarding the missile tests?
