Could North Korea be next after US airstrikes on Syria?

The US strike in Syria could have repercussions far beyond the Middle East.

By authorising military action, Donald Trump is differentiating himself from his predecessor - showing that he is prepared to act, that crossing a red line will have consequences - and that is a message designed to be heard by the leaders of China and North Korea as well.

The timing could not underline the President's point more powerfully - hosting Xi Jinping for dinner at the time as he was, ahead of their first serious meeting on Friday, at which Kim Jong-Un's nuclear programme is expected to top the agenda.

Now Mr Trump doesn't need to just tell the Chinese president he is serious - he can point to the satellite imagery.

But Syria is not North Korea.
