#WHYS North Korea

Duration:
28 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 04 April 2013

At 1030GMT we are asking for your reaction to the United States sending an advanced missile defence system to the Pacific Island of Guam. The move comes as North Korea issued a statement saying that its military had been given final approva...l to launch a nuclear strike. The US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel has said that N Korea is a "real and clear danger" to the United States and its allies. Analysts say that although the US had already planned to send a Thaad system to Guam, it underlines how seriously Washington is taking Pyongyang's threats.

What do you make of the move by the United States? Is it time to take North Korea seriously?
