Watch China, they are supposed to be ticked off enough this time to actually support some of the sanctions.  If China still won't put leverage North Korea on then maybe it is time for South Korea and Japan to announce that they are pulling out of the non-proliferation treaty and developing a nuclear retaliation capability.  Then announce they are start programs for both cruise and ballistic missiles in the 2500km range to deliver the nukes with, which will put most of China in range if they back North Korea after an attack.  China will get the message, and it is probably their #1 nightmare.
Don't rush development too much.  You want to give China time to muscle North Korea into an acceptable resolution and a return to the NPT by South Korea and Japan.

Leaving third world dictators standing at the supposed end of a war is not how to end a war.  If you want to end war, ask the germans or the japanese how it is done.  We did it to them and it works, we did not do it to north korea and all the other 2 bit collection of fools out there and we are still saddled with it all.  Our failure leaves us with messes that we continue to have to deal with one way or the other.
