Missile Tests in North Korea

Hosted by
In the past day, North Korea has fired seven missiles, triggering concern and condemnation around the world. The rockets all fell harmlessly into the Sea of Japan, but there are concerns that the defiant Pyongyang regime could launch more missiles. One of the missiles fired had the capacity to reach the western United States, but failed. How should the United Nations Security Council respond? What will China, North Korea's close ally, do to calm the situation? What kind of threat does the nation named by President Bush as one-third of the Axis of Evil actually pose to its neighbors and to the United States? Guest host Sara Terry explores the missile shots heard 'round the world, what North Korea's up to and why. (An extended version of this discussion originally aired earlier today on To the Point.)
