Lets Get Real:
The left wing Guardian more afraid of Trump than of North Korea, that is typical of the left, when things get hard they place their heads in the sand. The new Trump Administration has to be tough with North Korea, or get China to be tough on North Korea, otherwise they will have an ICBM in the near future. The Trump policy should be two fold, the defence of South Korea with a missile shield, also Japan, place even more pressure on China to control its neighbour. The worry for the left should be if North Korea gets ahead of itself, and starts a small scale war with South Korea or for that matter Japan, the US would need to come to the support of an ally, from Small Wars lead to Big Wars, thus China needs to control North Korea.
