Here is the National Review’s

Here is the National Review’s take on North Korea. The NR editors make the obvious, but somehow frequently overlooked point that developments in North Korea underscore the need to deal with Saddam Hussein before he becomes a nuclear power, and hence a serious threat to our security, as North Korea is now. As to actually dealing with the North Korean threat, the editors find our options quite limited. They see China as the key, and hope that China’s fear of nuclear profileration in Asia will provide the incentive for China to curtail the North Korean threat. To that end, they suggest that we begin pulling troops out of South Korea, thereby (the editors hope) increasing the likelihood that South Korea and Japan will look to obtain nuclear weapons in the absence of North Korean disarmament.
