1 big thing: "begging for war"

Ambassador Nikki Haley with a strong response to North Korea's latest nuclear test:

  • "We have taken an incremental approach, and despite the best intentions, it hasn't worked."
  • "War is never something the United States wants, we don't want it now, but our people's patience is not unlimited."
  • "We have kicked the can down the road long enough. There is no road left."
  • "The United States will view every country that does business with North Korea" as aiding their nuclear ambitions.
