Tensions on Korean Peninsula

North Korea has fired an intercontinental ballistic missile, a launch which comes after a series of missile launches lately. In response, two American B-1B bombers were redeployed to the Korean peninsula to conduct joint drills with South Korea. 

Both North Korea and the US with its allies are not backing down from their stances—the North firing missiles, and the US and its allies conducting military drills, which North Korea sees as a rehearsal for invasion.

In this edition of the Spotlight, we will look at why the US, which has strangled North Korea with sanctions, has chosen a military approach towards nuclear armed Pyongyang instead of diplomacy.
