There is no magic solution to the North Korea Problem. But military action should be a last resort, reserved for preempting a direct and imminent threat that doesn’t presently exist. Washington must avoid triggering the Second Korean War.

Today Washington policymakers are fixated on negotiations with Iran. While the ultimate success of negotiations remain in doubt, a more stable peace at least appears possible. Not so on the Korean peninsula.
