All North Korea wants to do, in my opinion, is to just seem like a threat to us, the United States of America. They just want to be some enormous, terrifying country that everyone fears. However, we, like other countries, have missile defense systems that could stop a potential attack like this.

For this reason, my friends and I believe that we should not be terribly worried about this. We should still watch the news and be aware of what is going on, but no one should be afraid of a missile attack.
