North Korea’s greatest liability is something that it currently views as an asset: its radical isolation.
It’s not too late for diplomacy with North Korea’s leader.
In films like American Sniper and The Interview, Americans are the heroes and “furriners” are the targets: an undifferentiated group of people so alien that they’re practically subhuman.
North Korea can’t help but think: “Look what happened to Libya when it gave up its nuclear weapons.”
It’s almost as if Pyongyang has ties to the Heritage Foundation.
Pyongyang is on the verge of conducting another nuclear test. Washington should consider a bigger stick and a bigger carrot.
