On the 70-year anniversary of the Korean War, neither the United States nor South Korea has identified a viable solution for the constant threat North Korea poses to the rest of the world.

Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi interview national security expert Fred Fleitz on the Federalist Radio Hour.
By obsessing over an unrealistic, up-front denuclearization deal with North Korea, the president and his advisers are turning down a dead end road.
Trump should realize there’s a limit to personal diplomacy, and that timing between summits is important. Still, walking away from a subpar deal was smart.
Sen. Rand Paul has the right idea about entertaining diplomatic talks with Russian officials. His colleagues should take note.
President Trump wants a ‘historic’ deal to make him look like a great leader—exactly the mistake previous presidents made in negotiating with North Korea.
President Trump’s cancellation of the Iran deal gets America back in to fight our side of it.

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.
