The obvious implication of this first lesson is that at this point, the United States needs to stop trying to roll back North Korea's nuclear program.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (centre) has been accused of killing his half brother.
"If they elevate the threat of their weapons program to a level that we believe requires action, that option is on the table", he said. Trump has been notoriously hard to pin down on nearly everything, especially foreign policy.
But as President Trump put it in a tweet: "North Korea is behaving very badly". The Chinese have also shown some willingness to tighten economic sanctions on North Korea by stopping imports of coal.
American defense officials had said Tuesday that the US military was expecting another North Korean missile launch in the next several days.
Malaysia's prime minister Najib Razak strongly condemned North Korea's ban on Tuesday, saying it is "effectively holding our citizens hostage". Joint military exercises tend to provoke a response from the North Koreans.
Sweet 16 set after two more big upsets
Leading scorer Luke Kennard had his second straight subpar shooting game, finishing 1 of 6 for 11 points before fouling out. Notice has struggled with his shot at times this season, so much that Martin has fielded questions about sitting him down.

The missile system, known as Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), is equipped with a powerful detection system known as an X band radar, which experts say would destabilize regional security and upset the region's current military balance. They have tried providing aid. Another concern is that the vast majority of North Korea's million-man army is just north of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separates it from South Korea. They have tried providing sunshine. More than 20 years later, it is clear that North Korea's nuclear weapons are here to stay.
He claims China may have given North Korea a free pass to kill Kim Jong-nam to strengthen their relationship.
Perhaps the most alarming thing is just how bad the computer graphics are - but that's North Korea for you. For one, China doesn't root for a North Korean collapse because it would send millions of refugees over the border into China. So Chinese credibility on North Korea leaves something to be desired. Given that Seoul and United States troops stationed in South Korea are well within range of thousands of artillery pieces, the toll in lives and physical damage would be enormous.
