Another voice: Drop the bluster on North Korea

China hits back at Trump on North Korea comments, says trade should be separate issue

US pushes China to rein in N. Korea

However it remains unclear whether those updated response options have been laid out for the President in the wake on North Korea's test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday - the second ICBM test conducted by Pyongyang within a month.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke with Trump on Monday and agreed on the need for more action on North Korea just hours after the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said Washington is "done talking about North Korea".

"We think the North Korea nuclear issue and China-US trade are issues that are in two completely different domains". And while experts question how soon a reliable nuclear weapon can be fired on a missile, it is wise to assume that North Korea's program will continue to advance, putting the United States and its allies South Korea and Japan at greater risk, unless a way is found to break the present cycle of threats and testing. China is North Korea's closest ally, but Beijing is angry with its continued nuclear and missile tests.

The official said that while North Korea can now get a missile "off the ground", a lot of undetermined variables remain about guidance, reentry and the ability to hit a specific target.

"However, to realize these goals, Beijing needs a more cooperative partner in the White House, not one who piles blame on China for the United States' failures", it added.

But China can't solve the nuclear crisis on its own.

Though considered by many to be the worst case scenario, the plan described by Graham illustrates a harsh reality surrounding using military force against North Korea.

He and many other lawmakers continue to call on China to help thwart North Korea's nuclear program.

If Trump doesn't act, it will be another sign to the North Koreans that they can do as they please with no consequences. One of the considerations that the President must make in any CFIUS recommendation is whether the acquirer's subject foreign country is adhering to nonproliferation control regimes, including treaties and multilateral supply guidelines, and to global sanctions regimes. "If they want to be a leader, then lead", said Manchin.
