North Korea just launched its Ballistic Missile. Should the world be alarmed?

This question is even more interesting to ponder now, 10 months after it was initially posted.  As we all know, the recent charm offensive by North Korea's dictator, Kim Jong-Un, is an interesting development to ponder.  Why is it happening now, when just a little more than six months ago, President Trump and Kim were trading very undiplomatic barbs with each other and the relationship seemed to be fast-tracked to a destination that most people would prefer to not contemplate -- war on  the Korean peninsula that could escalate to the nuclear level.  Now, they are in the process of preparing for the first ever summit between a US president and the leader of North Korea.

Why the change?  It's hard to put one's finger on it, but I think there are several possibilities:

1)  Trump's rhetoric actually scared Kim, his senior leadership and, quite possibly, the North's main sponsor, the Chinese, into believing that the world was indeed careening to nuclear or conventional war in the Koreas, with possible spillover into China and that a drastic change of course is necessary;
2)  Kim finally has accepted that the economic mess he presides over is on the verge of collapse, cutting short his rule and his life at the hands of an angry North Korean elite;
3)  Kim believes he is in a strong position to bargain with the USA for an outcome that favors the North, in general, and Kim's objectives, in particular; or
4)  The Chinese have convinced Kim that he has a lot more to gain from instituting a form of crony state capitalism similar to China's and working with South Korea and the USA, rather than against them.

Just some thoughts.  Any other perspectives out there?

The world does not need to be afraid of a fat little man. All that he is capable of is to gain some preferences from the United States. Everything will end with the complete disarmament of this country in exchange for financial injections from the US

The world faces more danger from the other fat guy (Donald Trump). That said, I would never take someone with access to ICBMs and nuclear weapons lightly. And I don't think that a complete disarmament of North Korea is ever going to take place. At the most, Kim Jong Un may give up his nukes.

Currently, Korea has announced the closure of nuclear reactors. That's good news for the whole world. I hope that such statement in the future will come true, people live in peace, prosperity and happiness.

I'm not sure northern korea can threaten the banking world, because what I know north korea is just a communist country led by the regime of dictator kim jong un, which always closes the outside media. There are many Koreans who are poor because the money is used for alutista. They are also depressed so many of them seek political asylum to neighboring countries. if it has recently challenged the United States only because of the good of America so that north korea is not destroyed, maybe the Americans pity the civilians in korut so as not to be attacked

North Korea had offered to give up nukes in 2007, in exchange for economic aid. But George W Bush came to power in 2008 and he sabotaged that deal. Just hope that this time Trump will be a bit more interested in peace.

Guys, North Korea are now offering peace to South Korea and I think everything is going to be normal and no more nuclear launch will happen again. Thank God that Kim-Jung Un has been awakened from his childish ambitions.

I in no way condone the way the NK establishment has apparently treat their citizens but what I would say is that the paranoia is probably justified given the USA carpet bombed their whole country and wiped out 30% of their total population. Only stopping the attack because there was nothing left of substance left to bomb...

North Korea is a threat to the world banking
cabal that is made up of the Bank for
International Settlements, the IMF and the World
Bank.
Any country that has an independent central bank
as all of our enemies do, has the potential of
issuing a value based currency such as a gold
backed currency.
Yes North Korea is very different from south korea.
The newly appointed Governor of South Korea's FSS has said that he saw "some positive aspects" for cryptocurrency in today's press conference, May 6. The governor also said FSS would work on the "problem" of crypto rules in collaboration with other regulators.

Trump stance on North Korea is one of the reason why this happened and he should be lauded for his efforts. He wasn’t as weak as Obama and most world leaders will were willing  to kowtow to the wishes of the Short Man.

Even though North korea is talking of peace and all I would not trust their leader and his actions.

He is going thru the motions since his nuclear testing has stalled and his country is dying of hunger and the economy is in ruins.

If North Korea had the money and the technology they would not be talking of peace but war.

You can take the tiger ou of the jungle but never the jungle out of the tiger. Once a dictator always a dictator.

Now watch them award Kin Jung-Un the noble peace prize!  Roll Eyes

Not only that, but then periodically conducted huge military exercises with the South (bombers included) which are basically a threat to repeat the feat (that on top of the verbal threats of invasion and regime change).

But most Americans don't know, or care, about any of that, and mainstream media isn't going help them there either.

They shouldn’t even give him any financial aid whatsoever because those are the things that the pre ious Presidents did and the North Koreans still continued with their Nuclear ambitions.

So far, the signs are positive. But we will be able to say something concrete only after the meeting between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump. I don't think that Kim will agree to give up his nukes. And Trump may not agree to a deal without it.

of course the world should worry because it's something that danger. If North Korea dared to launch something that danger does not cover the possibility North Korea would endanger the world.
This could be a warning to the world to always be vigilant and on the alert in the form of a surprise attack to come at any time.

Hopefully the nuclear missile is not in the use of crime, because we know the nuclear bomb is very dangerous for survival, so if nuclear missiles are held by irresponsible people then the survival in the world should be worried, and hope the united states to achieve world peace.
May be useful.

I Think North Korea is one of the most powerful country in the world

It's a dangerous country - that's for sure.

But don't forget they have very old equipment! And their men are very likely to desert once they cross the border, because of the bad state of the army.

Still they could do quite a lot of damage to south korea!

Mike Pompeo (United States Secretary of State) had a very successful meeting with Kim Jong Un, the North Korean leader. But there is no guarantee that Trump will be able to reach a deal with the North Koreans. How hard Trump will try to get rid of the nukes from the DPRK?

Well its very alarming mostly to the people that are working abroad and on the other hand , my country which is ph , the government are making an action in regards to the missile launch of north korea. And so far so good though , now north korea is quite often to launch a missile but then again no assurance.

For what i think is we the world will be alarmed and make some action as soon as possible. I hope this will not be the beginning of a war.

What I don‘t get is why the US and south korea dont cancel their millitary maneuvers for this year, or postpone them at least.

I totally understand that north korea is offended by these actions, especially now as they are actually talking peace (or denuking).
