Missile Defense 101: N. Korea could hit with little warning

Harris, head of the United States Pacific Command, based in Hawaii, said North Korea is "closer to being able to deliver a nuclear-equipped missile anywhere in the world" and called for further coordination between the U.S., Japan and South Korea to deal with the threat.
South Korea has "been informed only of the fact that the North Korean missile was detected over the phone and through word of mouth".
Washington and Beijing - the North's sole diplomatic and military ally - are working on a new Council resolution targeting Pyongyang, she added.
"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it".
Traditionally, the United States and China have negotiated new sanctions before involving remaining council members.
"Combining nuclear warheads with ballistic technology in the hands of a volatile leader like Kim Jong Un is a recipe for a disaster", Harris said.
There is ample possibility for the council to use sanctions to respond to the current situation without closing other options "through creative, subtle and peaceful diplomacy", Rosselli said.
North Korea was also under scrutiny by investigators looking for the source of a major cyberattack affecting more than 150 countries, but the European police agency said it was still too early to determine who caused the chaos.
The U.N. Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea in 2006 and has strengthened the measures in response to its five nuclear tests and two long-range rocket launches.
North Korea fired a ballistic missile on Sunday that landed in the sea near Russian Federation, which experts said signaled major advances in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could target the United States. The Indian-American said any country that doesn't implement United Nations sanctions is supporting Pyongyang's actions.
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley accused North Korea on Tuesday of intimidating the entire global community with its nuclear program, military ability and cyberattacks, and said any country that doesn't implement United Nations sanctions is supporting Pyongyang's actions. China is North Korea's main ally at the United Nations and has in the past advocated for direct negotiations rather than economic and military punishment.
The missile travelled some 700km (435 miles), reaching an altitude of 2,000km and landing in the sea west of Japan.
Despite the push for a tougher stance, Haley held out the prospect of direct talks with North Korea, saying "we are willing to talk but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any test there".
He noted that although the court declined to hear the case, the refusal expresses no opinion about the merits of the issue. Pat McCrory sought Supreme Court review of the 4th Circuit's decision, but in February newly installed Democratic Gov.
