China running out of time to stop THAAD deployment?
Continued calls for 'calm' reactions to N.Korean tests may no longer find an audience in Seoul

However, their calls for “calm” following North Korea’s defiance of the international community and proliferation of technology that threatens the South appear to be finding less and less of a reception in Seoul.
