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 proliferator 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.

Bodansky, Yossef.  North Korea's Strategic Coup.  Defense & Foreign Affairs Strategic Policy 35, no. 2:16-17 2007.
President Roh publicly stated that Seoul did not consider Pyongyang's nuclear weapons as a threat.  "The North is developing nuclear weapons in order to prevent other countries from threatening the North.  It is very hard to think that the North's nuclear weapons are made to attack others first," Roh asserted.  In so doing, Roh formally accepted the DPRK's nuclear strategy as publicly articulated by DPRK leader Kim Jong-Il and other senior DPRK officials.

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 neighbouring states that are close allies of the U.S.

North Korea:  Are the Six-Party Nuclear Talks Dead?  Arms Control Today 36:24-27 September 2006.
Bush administration critics frequently note that comments from U.S. officials such as Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Christopher Hill and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice following the statement suggested that the United States was backing off of its commitments regarding the light-water nuclear reactor.  North Korea's motivation to conduct a nuclear test explosion may be to demonstrate, beyond doubt, that it possesses a nuclear weapons arsenal.  Robert Gallucci, who served as Washington's point man for negotiations with North Korea during a 1993-1994 confrontation over its nuclear program, told Arms Control Today in July that even if Security Council Resolution 1695 helped pressure North Korea to return to the talks, "in the end the United States should find a way to get beyond the six-party modality and begin direct, even informal, negotiations with Pyongyang."
