The isolationists win - Pioneer
During the late 1930’s, in the aftermath of the great depression and World War I, barely a generation old, there was the rise of an isolationist and non-intervention movement in the US.

Can the world live with a nuclear North Korea? - Jonathan Marcus, BBC
Launching a rocket over Japanese territory - with at least the possibility that it could break up and deposit debris on Japanese soil - shows that Pyongyang is intent on maintaining its brinkmanship - this was only the third missile test to over-fly Japan within the past two decades.
