North Korea’s recent actions have ignited a crisis in northeast Asia. Unfortunately, the options under discussion for dealing with this crisis all have major drawbacks. Meanwhile, 37,000 U.S. troops are potentially in harm’s way in South Korea, and relations between Washington and Seoul are tense. Please join Cato scholars for a discussion of the interests and responsibilities of the United States regarding the Korean peninsula and recommendations on how to proceed in this ever‐more‐dangerous region of the world.
