The author argues that an enhanced package of sanctions, UN resolutions, diplomatic pressures and miltary threats against North Korea is futile; indeed Washington has been doing this for years and it hasn't worked yet, and a more robust version directed at North Korea won't work now.
Excerpt: Needless to say, Kim Jong Un is delusional if he thinks a couple of nukes and fleet of wannabe ICBMs will protect him from Gaddafi's pitiless demise. If Washington concludes that Regime Change is the only solution to the North Korean nuclear threat, it will happen sooner or later.
Then again, there is no reason to believe the Fat Boy is suicidal and that rather than nuclear deterrence, his purpose is to rain nuclear war on America or its allies.
Indeed, the idea that North Korea is an expansionist threat to anybody, but most especially its kinsmen in South Korea, is a ridiculous joke.
