For those who are aware, N Korea shot a long range missile before the expected date, and worse off, the missile went over Japan. It was said to be shooting a satellite though, though some reports mention otherwise.
This is a direct violation of the UN Security Counsel.
Neither the US nor any other country took any action against the missile while it was over Japan.
Currently Obama doesn't want any conflict, and believes a scolding from the UN is in order.
