North Korea Problem Essay

677 words - 3 pages

Intro/AC:North Korea has failed to send a long range missile into space 2 weeks ago, but weapon experts say the testing firing succeeded in other important ways, "it made clear that Pyongyang still has a credible, advanced missile program and that it has the ability to seize Washington's attention at will."
