Last week, North Korea tested a ballistic missile by launching it over Japan. The last few weeks have seen a stepped-up testing rate from the North. Ostensibly these tests are to protest US-South Korea military exercises, including the visit of a US aircraft carrier to South Korea. Pyongyang has a history of testing to make a point or express displeasure. But this is almost certainly a veneer.
The deeper reason is that North Korea is leaning ever further into its nuclear and missile capabilities, and it needs to test them. Testing would almost certainly occur regardless of whether a U.S. official came through the region for a few days, Japan changed its prime minister, and so on.
