    Because diplomatic complications.

  • Because China and Russia are testing their missiles on North Korean soil and allowing Kim to take "credit" for it, to make him out to be a more serious menace than he is. In the meantime, it puts pressure on the US to respond and distracts from China's South Sea island creation project. Don't worry about it so much. (That said, though, Kim does deserve some serious payback after what he did to Otto Warmbier.)
