China’s Position on North Korea

By William Tucker

Washington has decided to postpone an intercontinental ballistic missile test at Vandenberg Air Force Base this week due to tensions with North Korea. It may seem a strange move considering the assets the U.S. had made available for the recent war games with South Korea, but it is logical. Any deployment of military hardware to South Korea that seemed out of the norm could easily be sent under the guise of the war games, but a ballistic missile test could easily be mistaken as an overt provocative measure.
