"North Korea announced on Sunday its 'successful' test of a new type of
high-thrust rocket engine, which was widely interpreted as 'meaningful
progress' in its missile capabilities. In response, US President Donald Trump said that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was 'acting very, very badly.'
It's an indisputable fact that North Korea is making continuous progress in rocket research and development. Theoretically speaking, Pyongyang sooner or later will acquire an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the US.
Neither the allies of the US and South Korea nor North Korea want war. The situation hasn't come to a complete impasse. But if the North continues its aggressive moves, it's only a matter of time before a military clash breaks out. The trigger may be a well-planned surprise attack, a fatal misjudgment or an accident."
