Watch the video clip from Democracy Now!

On Democracy Now, Ploughshares Fund president Joe Cirincione suggests a question for thinking about US policy towards North Korea as it relates to their 4th nuclear weapons test: which is a better model -- the Iraq War or the Iran deal?

"Nine months ago, the United States and other world powers reached a landmark nuclear deal with Iran. Could a similar deal be reached with North Korea? We speak with Joe Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund and author of Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It is Too Late, and Christine Ahn, founder and executive director of Women Cross DMZ, a global movement of women mobilizing to end the Korean War."
