U.S. Military Moved Ships in Position in ref. N.Korea

We have reason to be concerned if N.Korea decides to "press the button" and test their missile.

The U.S. military yesterday moved ships into position off the coast of North Korea to detect the launch of any long-range ballistic missiles and prepared its new, unproven missile-interception system to attempt a response if necessary.

U.S. Ambassador John Bolton rejected an offer from N.Korea
Via AOL News:
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - U.S. Ambassador John Bolton on Wednesday rejected an offer from a North Korean diplomat for direct talks with Pyongyang on a potential missile test, saying the threat of a launch wasn't the way to seek dialogue.

"You don't normally engage in conversations by threatening to launch intercontinental ballistic missiles," Bolton said, "and it's not a way to produce a conversation because if you acquiesce in aberrant behavior you simply encourage the repetition of it, which we're obviously not going to do."

"Obviously the priority remains trying to persuade North Korea not to conduct the launch," Bolton told reporters at U.N. headquarters in New York.
