There is little doubt North Korea would come off very badly if the tensions between them and the US burst into military action.
But they are not likely to be the only ones severely impacted.
China, South Korea and Japan in particular will be very uneasy about the escalating confrontation.
Trump and the US are a lot safer lobbing bombs from afar, but at risk to them is their standing in the world.
While New Zealand is a long way from any potential nuclear fallout the trade repercussions could impact us.
And I’d be very wary of travelling in that region at the moment.
