Dealing with a nuclear North Korea
 

With North Korea’s nuclear path down the road, one has to be realistic that Pyongyang will not accept any vision and plan of its unilateral nuclear disarmament, given whatever international sanctions imposed.  While talking about “fire and fury” by the White House or “enveloping strike” by the North, both parties have so far refrained from initiating preemption, which could yield unacceptable amount of damage for either side.  This presentation will address a mid-ground approach to addressing the nuclear issue of the North Korea – capping and freezing its nuclear wherewithal by engaging the regime, at least at this stage.
