Zemitis, Darrell Hugh.  The Future of North Korea:  Scenarios and Implications for the United States Army.  Berkeley, CA, University of California, 2000.  70 p.
In recent years, North Korea has been plagued by economic decline, famine, and international isolation.  Due to the current situation in North Korea, there has been recent speculation about the future of North Korea.  Some feel that it will collapse, others hypothesize that North Korea will gradually reform and open itself to the outside world.  The 'hard landing' and 'soft landing' scenarios for North Korea future are discussed, and the argument for a North Korean 'soft landing' is made in this thesis, based on recent diplomatic events, and internal changes in North Korea.  Regardless of the future of North Korea, each scenario carries with it certain implications and essential tasks for the United States Army in Korea.  These implications and tasks are explored, and recommendations for detailing with the future of North Korea are put forward.

The new round of North Korean brinkmanship has immediate global strategic ramifications.  East Asia began in September 2004 undergoing a profound earthquake regarding the essence of the region's grand strategic posture.  By Winter 2004-2005, both Tokyo and Beijing had already articulated novel approaches to their respective strategic postures and military build-ups, stressing the need for assertive policies and region-wide presence.  These new defense polities set the stage for a regional arms-race which will have a significant impact on the vital inter ests of the United States, Australia, and their key allies.

Newly-acquired, sensitive internal documents of the Korean People's Army covering the period between Summer 2000 and Fall 2002, obtained through Japanese sources, reflect that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il has personally orchestrated a highly-professional strategic deception operation against the US.  The campaign specifically rejects the notion that the reunification of the Korean Peninsula could be achieved peacefully and specifically prepares for war with the US and the Republic of Korea.

Han, Sung-Joo.  The Koreas' New Century.  Survival 42:85-95 Winter 2000-2001.
The June 2000 summit between North Korea and South Korea has engendered exaggerated hopes and unreasonable fears.  At one extreme is the optimism of those who see the summit as an irrefutable sign of North Korea's intention to join the rest of the world as a constructive player.  At the other extreme, it is seen as a masterstroke of deception by Pyongyang to reap economic gains and lower the guard of Seoul and its allies, principally the US.

Bechtol, Bruce E.  Future of US Airpower on the Korean Peninsula.  Air & Space Power Journal 19:75-84 Fall 2005.
The article reports on the future of U.S. airpower on the Korean Peninsula.  Many issues relating to the disposition of US forces in Asia--Korea in particular--are relevant to any discussion regarding the future of air forces on the peninsula and surrounding areas that would find themselves involved in a conflict or major military operation during a crisis.   In order to address why U.S. airpower has become such an important deterrent to the North Korean military threat, one must first note how that threat has changed.

Discussion of North Korea's nuclear programme and what to do about it has become ideological and emotionally charged.  Convinced that good policy serving American and allied interests is unlikely to emerge from such a debate, Korea experts Victor Cha and David Kang decided to step back from the histrionics and engage in a reasoned, rational and logical exchange on the nature of the North Korean regime and the policy that should be followed by the United States, Japan, and South Korea.  Their debate was published in book form as Nuclear North Korea:  A Debate on Engagement Strategies (New York:  Columbia University Press, 2003). Survival invited Cha and Kang to continue their debate in these pages.

In response, the U.S. raised the defense readiness condition, reinforced the peninsula, and chopped down the tree.  Simply chopping down the tree was the mildest action considered by the National Security Council.

Ayson, Robert.  Selective Non-Proliferation or Universal Regimes?  Australian Journal of International Affairs 59:431-437 December 2005.
The article comments on the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).  The key trend is towards a selective, case-by-case approach to proliferation which uses a different mix of instruments depending on the proliferators involved.  North Korea is being pressured to abandon its nuclear weapons program. However, Iran remains a party to the NPT.  The response of the United States to India's nuclear proliferation demonstrates the selectivity in approach.  The NPT itself was something of a sign of a cooperation among the five nuclear weapon states to retain the monopoly for themselves.

Bonsignore, Ezio.  Of Bombs and Treaties.  Military Technology 29:4 June 2005.
The article focuses on the ongoing international confrontations about the alleged nuclear weapons programmes in North Korea and Iran.  According to the author, the North Korean and the Iranian nuclear weapons programmes are essentially a form of limited deterrent against the U.S. In both cases, the deterrent is workable, despite its very primitive technological nature and despite the fact that the U.S. territory is totally out of reach, because the threat can conveniently be directed towards neighboring states that are close allies of the U.S.

Discussion of North Korea's nuclear programme and what to do about it has become ideological and emotionally charged.  Convinced that good policy serving American and allied interests is unlikely to emerge from such a debate, Korea experts Victor Cha and David Kang decided to step back from the histrionics and engage in a reasoned, rational and logical exchange on the nature of the North Korean regime and the policy that should be followed by the United States, Japan, and South Korea.  Their debate was published in book form as Nuclear North Korea:  A Debate on Engagement Strategies (New York:  Columbia University Press, 2003). Survival invited Cha and Kang to continue their debate in these pages.

Friedman, Norman.  Threat Smolders in North Korea.  U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings 129:4+ September 2003.
While much attention is being paid to events in Iraq, North Korea continues to smolder.  In July 2003, for example, the North Koreans claimed they had enough plutonium for several bombs; it was not clear whether they were merely blustering.  There also were more cries that the United States was far too extended, with so much of the deployable army tied down in Iraq that it could not be used in Korea. Critics of the war in Iraq asked why the United States had concentrated on that country, whose threat of weapons of mass destruction seemed more remote, when North Korea had publicly announced that it was building its own nuclear weapons.

Bush administration decided to take a second, bold, but low-cost step: it temporarily suspended the annual "Team Spirit" military exercises with South Korea, prompting North Korea finally to announce it would allow international inspections of its nuclear facilities.  The task is to ensure that North Korea has frozen its nuclear material production activities, accounted for all of its plutonium, and dismantled any nuclear weapons it may have.

Dr. Andrew Scobell examines the topic of Pyongyang's strategic intentions.  He first identifies a broad spectrum of expert views and distills this wisdom into three "packages" of possible strategic intentions.  He then sets out to test which package appears to reflect actual North Korean policy.  While he opines that one is more likely than the others, he concludes that it is impossible to say with certainty which package most closely resembles reality.  As a result, he suggests that further probing of Pyongyang's intentions is advisable.--SSI web site.
