North Korea has insisted it will defend itself following the deployment of US warships in Korean Waters.
not only by the US but also by South Korea and its closest ally, China with regards to his insistence of testing ballistic missiles.
However the despot leader has little regard for others, which was evident when a recent missile test was conducted, where the target was the Sea of Japan.
China has already imposed economic sanctions against their neighbours, which include a ban on all imports.
North Korea are desperate to develop a nuclear capability and further test missiles are expected, which could bring the scenario to a head.
There have been indications that they may be about to test an intercontinental missile, which could reach the Americas.
