"Today, the overwhelming focus of the United States and its allies is aimed at stopping Iran from securing a nuclear weapon. The ongoing nuclear weapons program of North Korea appears to be, at best, a serious but somewhat secondary consideration. Yet the two programs are inexorably intertwined, and are part of an identical strategy adopted by these two rogue states and their allies to harm U.S. security interests."
This is just the mere introduction to an 8-page article entitled "Our Pyongyang Problem," recently published in the Journal of International Security Affairs written by AFA's President and CEO, Mike Dunn, along with Peter Huessy, President of GeoStrategic Analysis and a senior defense consultant to AFA.
The piece contextualizes the global threats faced by North Korea, mentions the the failed diplomatic attempts from the international community to suspend NK's covert nuclear weapons program, and identifies North Korea's ultimate goals. Check it out in the Spring/Summer 2012 edition!
