Reunification = Denuclearization: Our RAND Corporation Says We Should Just Buy Our Way Out of Trouble in the Koreas

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the RAND Corporation, has something to say today about denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.

Check it:

“Alternative to Futile Negotiations with N.K.”

It’s pithy so it won’t take to long to see his point.

China’s little buddy certainly is upset about something or other these days, it would seem.

The gist:

“So a reunification strategy would need two main thrusts. First, South Korea and the United States would need to prepare for a potentially massive, possibly violent stabilization effort, as well as a humanitarian relief operation. China would react to any instability in North Korea, especially if South Korean and U.S. forces move into North Korea’s territory. There must be an effort to coordinate South Korean and U.S. plans with the Chinese.”

Sounds good to me.
