Assessing the North Korean Hazard
Jan 2, 2017 | 13:34 GMT
This is the first installment of a five-part series that originally ran in May 2016. It examines the measures that could be taken to inhibit North Korea's nuclear weapons program. The purpose of this series is not to consider political rhetoric or noninvasive means of coercion such as sanctions. Rather, we are exploring the military options, however remote, that are open to the United States and its allies, along with the expected retaliatory response from Pyongyang.
