North Korea poses one of the greatest nuclear threats on the planet. The US is in the middle of a slow-motion train-wreck with North Korea over its nuclear weapons and missile program -- and President Trump's loose talk about nuclear weapons in the region hasn't helped. Unless we do something about the situation now, a "metal on metal" collision could be in the offing -- a full blown crisis marked by more North Korean tests and calls within Washington for military strikes to stop them.
Philip Yun, our Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, has been at the forefront of the North Korean discussion for decades. Having worked for the United States government in various senior advisory positions pertaining to North Korea policy and diplomatic negotiations, he is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable figures on North Korea today. His recent analysis on national television and radio provides a clear perspective on the situation, and what can be done by the United States and other major world powers to contain North Korea.
