A top White House adviser says he wouldn't be surprised If North Korea carried out another missile test, following weeks of belligerent rhetoric and actions.

Dan Pfeiffer tells "Fox News Sunday" that the communist regime needs to "take a step back," otherwise they will "further isolate themselves" and the North Korean people will continue to starve.

Sen. John McCain says China holds the key to curbing North Korea's belligerence. Appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation," the Arizona Republican says the North's young leader Kim Jong Un is playing a game of brinksmanship that's been repeated for decades.

McCain says he doubts North Korea will ever agree to abandon its nuclear quest, because that would make the communist regime "irrelevant." He says China could bring pressure on the North by cutting it off economically.
