Excerpt
Excerpt: The United States National Security Strategy has a stated objective to ?? prevent our enemies from threatening us, our allies and our friends with weapons of mass destruction (W.M.D.) (1).? As an adversary for the past 50 years, North Korea has consistently opposed our support of South Korea and Japan, and our presence in Northeast Asia. In the recent past, it has developed, tested and produced ballistic missiles. It has also fielded weapons of mass destruction, specifically chemical and biological weapons (2). As troubling as those weapons are, that threat pales compared to the recent North Korean acknowledgement of a nuclear weapons program (3). Nuclear weapons coupled with ballistic missile delivery systems present a new level of threat to the United States and its allies. This new North Korean potential can best be countered by a three-part strategy of aggressive diplomacy, conditional and unconditional engagement and a strong containment posture, all laced with a heavy dose of skepticism.
