    They've also been firing (short-range) missiles towards Japan.

    It might be worth pointing out to them that they are a nuclear power who is technically still at war with an ally of the United States. There is a non-trivial chance that their attempted nuclear extortion will instead result in Pyongyang becoming a sea of molten glass and steel.
