Ayson, Robert.  Selective Non-Proliferation or Universal Regimes?  Australian Journal of International Affairs 59:431-437 December 2005.
Discusses the NPT and the key trend 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.

Reacting to North Korea's first nuclear test, the UN Security Council Oct. 14 insisted that all countries prevent Pyongyang from trafficking in unconventional arms, major conventional weapons, and luxury goods.  Approved unanimously, Security Council Resolution 1718 establishes a sanctions regime calling for "inspection of cargo to and from" North Korea, but it leaves it up to governments to determine how to exploit their existing authorities and capabilities under current international law.

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.

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."

Onozuka, Takayuki.  Security of Japan and Korean Unification.  Carlisle Barracks, PA, U.S. Army War College, 2006.  20 p.
A Korean unification has implications for Japan’s security as follows.  First, a U.S.-leaning Korea is favorable for Japan.  Second, a neutral Korea is unfavorable for Japan, but not critical to Japan as long as ties between Japan and the U.S. are firm.  Third, a China-leaning Korea is unfavorable.  If China becomes aggressive with Korea, it may be critical to Japan’s security.  The character of a unified Korea will be a complex functional equation.  Japan hopes a new Korea is friendly if making efforts to support the project to unify the two Koreas is successful.  Japan should also strengthen ties with the U.S. and build mutual understanding and trust with China.

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.

Civil-military relations is one of the most challenging dimensions to deal with regarding North Korea.  Since 1998, Pyongyang's foremost policy has been declared as "military-first."  While experts debate the precise meaning and significance of this policy, considerable consensus exists that it gives the leading role to the Korean People's Army (KPA. Hence, military leaders in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea are very powerful and influential figures.  Who are they?  What kind of power and influence do these leaders wield, and how do they exert it?  How do KPA leaders interact with dictator Kim Jong Il and their civilian counterparts?

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.

The most important changes that relate to North Korea in 2005 were the great strides in the inter-Korean relationship and the economic "reform" since 2002, which grafts "profit maximization" to the heart of what is arguably the most rigid planned economy the world has ever known.

Reunification -- Document

Onozuka, Takayuki.  Security of Japan and Korean Unification.  Carlisle Barracks, PA, U.S. Army War College, 2006.  20 p.
A Korean unification has implications for Japan’s security as follows.  First, a U.S.-leaning Korea is favorable for Japan.  Second, a neutral Korea is unfavorable for Japan, but not critical to Japan as long as ties between Japan and the U.S. are firm.  Third, a China-leaning Korea is unfavorable.  If China becomes aggressive with Korea, it may be critical to Japan’s security.  The character of a unified Korea will be a complex functional equation.  Japan hopes a new Korea is friendly if making efforts to support the project to unify the two Koreas is successful.  Japan should also strengthen ties with the U.S. and build mutual understanding and trust with China.
