Aren't you glad Donald Trump and his tough talk bought Kim Jong-un to heel ?

South Korean intelligence sources had reported movement of North Korean launch vehicles early last week, while there had been speculation a test would be timed to coincide with a national holiday on 9 September.

Had that happened, it would have been interpreted as a show of strength by Kim Jong Un - a signal, on the anniversary of the country's founding, of where it is heading under his leadership - towards the nuclear deterrent his citizens are told is the only means to secure their survival.

Instead, coming as it does now four days after the UN Security Council passed its strongest sanctions resolution yet, this will now be seen as a statement of North Korea's defiance - a furious rejection of the measures being imposed upon it by the international community.
