Victor Cha quotes

Apr 19 2017 - North Korea

Normally, we condemn it, we say it's a violation of existing resolutions, we call on them to stop, and then we call on the allies to coordinate policy. It's very typical. I could write those talking points for any president. That is not a normal United States reaction. Part of that is to put a lot of pressure on China, for China to cut off assistance to North Korea. That is why we've seen the escalation–because North Korea is continuing on its path and the U.S. is trying to do something that shows muscularity, unpredictability, and decisiveness. Whether that works? We don't know yet.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Japan

For them, the fact that it's a nuclear threat probably hits home more than literally every other country in the world. And Japan is unusual in the sense that it's a legitimate world power that has chosen–precisely because of its history–never to pursue nuclear weapons.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - South Korea

The message, I think, is going to be about vigilance and deterrence. The United States wants to project a more muscular image when it comes to the policy so some unpredictability serves that cause.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - North Korea

I think that is what President Trump is getting trying to get the Chinese to do. [It] would impose real pain and force real choices on North Korea – whether the costs are worth it for them to continue to pursue this program if they no longer have any sustenance.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - North Korea

It's very hard to strike [these components] because you don't know where they are. It's certainly true that dictatorships like North Korea–their primary goal is to survive. So could you carry out a strike against their nuclear facilities with a threat that if they retaliate we will wipe out the regime? Will a rational dictator then sort of sit still? Possibly. But that's a big risk to take.feedback

Apr 07 2017

It gets pretty ugly.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - North Korea

The undiplomatic answer is that it puts enough pressure on the regime that there will be some sort of internal problems, and that Kim Jong Un might be challenged by others who see a better path for North Korea. I prefer to not think of [a nuclear-armed North Korea] as a geopolitical reality. The geopolitical reality is that this regime can't last forever.feedback

Apr 07 2017

People start paying attention because it's not the typical U.S. response.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Japan

Kim Jong-un has shown no interest in dialogue with any partners, including China, South Korea, Japan, Russia and the United States – in the US case, despite numerous attempts by the previous administration to establish contact.feedback

Mar 18 2017

It seemed to me at the time that the DPRK finally received the security guarantee and the end to 'hostile' U.S. policy that they had long sought. Yet, after holding this out as a precondition for progress, in subsequent rounds of negotiations they proceeded to brush this off as a meaningless commitment, a piece of paper that guaranteed nothing for North Korean security.feedback

Mar 11 2017

This is no longer about a lonely dictator crying for attention or demanding negotiations. That's why they want to be able to reach the continental United States, so they can effectively hold us hostage. Do we really want to trade Los Angeles for whatever city in North Korea? The growing danger now, is miscalculation.feedback

Mar 08 2017

In the end the North Korean actions are going to predetermine the outcome of the [U.S.] policy review . . . The North Koreans are really not giving Trump any room on this.feedback

Jan 04 2017 - Sanctions

How to stop this is of course difficult. It's a combination of diplomacy (to get a freeze), sanctions (Chinese ones and Treasury), moving more military assets to the region for extended deterrence, strike options, and integrated missile defence. That's what would be on my menu.feedback
