N orth Korea has tested 11 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) this year but its latest test is the most worrisome. The ICBM launched at the end of July flew a distance of 621 miles. Experts fear that if North Korea can change the angle of the trajectory it could potentially travel as far as the East Coast of the United States. Professor Shaul Horev a lecturer in political science at the University of Haifa and the former head of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission says it is difficult to forecast the outcome of this latest development but emphasizes there are many political tools that can be employed against North Korea short of war.
