Sanctions against North Korea are being ratcheted up in retaliation for that country's nuclear ambitions.
Let's be careful. North Korea's man at the helm is a certified cuckoo who cannot be expected to react in anything approaching reasonably expected conduct.
Hearken back to 1941. Japan's Pearl Harbor attack was blamed, in part, on the economic sanctions promulgated by the U.S. which were deemed to be suffocatingly unreasonable.
Let's make sure to evaluate all potential nutcake moves that N.K. might grasp at.
There are no men of sound mind at play here.
