Abstract:

The international community has exhausted all normal options for curbing North Koreas nuclear ambitions. All efforts, including Trumps threat of fire and fury, and his presidential flattering diplomacy, have failed. Realistically, total denuclearization in the Korea Peninsula will not be possible. Instead, the US should acknowledge North Koreas ability to maintain a carefully limited nuclear program while drawing the DPRK into the international community. Over the long term, the transformation of the Hermit Kingdom may very well present the best opportunity to stabilize the Norths nuclear endeavor, and most possibly, DPRKs nuclear capability might serve US strategic interests in engaging, if not containing Russia and China.
