The White House has issued the obligatory strongly-worded statement:

North Korea appears to have been unimpressed with previous strongly worded statements, but we’ll see what happens.
@AP We will never accept you as a nuclear state. Even though you are obviously a nuclear state.

@AP Never accept them as nuclear state? They already are. You have to accept reality.

The resolutions and sanctions have been so effective that we're going to continue to rely on them. https://t.co/dyg6pZg3Cb

@AP Yeah he needs to draw a red line. They will respect that.

If Kim Jong-un doesn’t knock it off, the White House might have to unleash its secret weapon:
