Sometime over the next several years, the next U.S. president could confront a genuinely dangerous threat from a faraway place – a North Korean missile that can hit U.S. territory with a nuclear warhead. Led by an impulsive and brutal young man, North Korea may pose the most direct nuclear risk for the United States. A nuclear North Korea, remote as it may seem, poses what Pentagon planners see as an urgent challenge for the United States. The Obama administration's strategy has been to work with China to contain Kim and seek a denuclearized North Korea. The U.S. lauded China's decision to support a U.N. Security Council resolution in March that condemned North Korea's nuclear and missile tests and imposed limited sanctions. China wants to go slow on North Korea, as with most foreign policy issues. If China won't join in such punishing sanctions, he says, the U.S. may have to impose them unilaterally.
