How to Deal With North Korea

The Atlantic

Tuesday, we’re asking what the United States should do about North Korea. The secluded country has South Korea in its military cross hairs, and its goal is to pose a nuclear threat to the U.S. The regime of Kim Jong Un fired a missile last month that went farther than any attempt, and experts say it’s only a matter of time before they can reach American soil. Journalist Mark Bowden has written an article about what the United States can do to confront this threat, and he’ll join us to discuss it.

Mark Bowden is a national correspondent at The Atlantic. His article "The Worst Problem on Earth" is the cover story of the magazine's July/August issue. He also has a new book out. It's called Hué 1968: A Turning Point of the American War in Vietnam [Independent bookstores|Amazon|Audible].
