By obsessing over an unrealistic, up-front denuclearization deal with North Korea, the president and his advisers are turning down a dead end road.
If foreign policy is all about optics, resonance to the domestic audience, and regime stability, Kim Jong-Un, Xi Jinping, and Moon Jae-In are toast.
If security is paramount for Kim, nuclear weapons might be his only hope of staving off regime change.
With negotiated denuclearization impossible, we must leverage Pyongyang’s fear of regime collapse by taking a stronger security stance and signaling that we are willing to fight.
Long before Iraq and Iran, the United States was wrestling with the problem of how to strike North Korea, where planning for the use of nuclear weapons ran into various dead-ends.
Iran’s leaders are aware that once Donald Trump is in office, the Iran deal is most likely going to be altered or dismantled. So why not thumb their noses at the United States?
The Obama administration decided early on that the only way to get the United States out of the Middle East was to replace it with Russia and Iran.
