Last quote by Vipin Narang

If our opening bid is denuclearization, that just seems like a Western fantasy at this point. What incentive does Kim have to give them up at this point? If that's our only acceptable end point, I don't see any way that he willingly gives up his nuclear weapons.feedback

Sep 08 2017

The nuclear strategy of weaker powers.feedback

Sep 06 2017

But to deter the United States or really induce risk, what percentage is necessary before you cause Washington to have some pause: Is 5 percent acceptable? Are you willing to lose 5,000 to 50,000 Americans, on average? Probably not, right? And if you're truly talking about a thermonuclear warhead, you could be talking about … millions of casualties. We need to get beyond this notion that it has to be perfect, and it has to be accurate. The larger the warhead, the less accurate it needs to be.feedback

Sep 06 2017

It's pretty impressive. And it suggests they've figured out how to do a lot of things, and they are willing to have higher tolerances for failure and for less reliability.feedback

Sep 06 2017 - Sanctions

That's where I think it's really impressive–the innovation by necessity that they've had. It's a country under sanctions. It's a country under threat.feedback

Sep 06 2017

The fact that they are willing to test missiles so frequently suggests they are not really worried about supply. And if you didn't have the ability to produce so many missiles, then you might be a little more reluctant to test.feedback

Aug 31 2017

Incoherence is not a strategy, and this is really starting to look incoherent.feedback

Aug 31 2017

This was an operational test. They're getting units ready to fire a missile without being destroyed.feedback

Aug 15 2017

They always refer to the B1s as the 'pirates of Guam'. [Kim Jong-un] has a real problem with B1 flights and there may be an equivalence of if you are going to harass us by coming to within tens of kilometres of our territory, then we are going to park Hwasong-12's [intermediate range missiles] 30 or 40 km off of Guam.feedback

Aug 15 2017

I think people are not reading the statement. This is literally restating the threat and leaving space for some quid pro quo and space for negotiation. But the threat remains. It's not like he took the threat off the table. If the US does anything that he sees as provocative, he has reviewed the plan and now stands poised to execute it.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - North Korea

The Chinese have an incentive to let this fester because it's a big distraction for Washington. North Korea is a huge thorn in our side.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Japan

The only reason we have shows of strength is to remind South Korea and Japan that the alliance is strong.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - China

The North Korean program is a real program now.feedback

May 18 2017 - Nuclear weapons

This notion that the program is unsophisticated is no longer true, and I don't think the strategy is unsophisticated, either. The objective is to preserve the regime, right? You really have to stop the invasion. And if you think you need nuclear weapons to do that . . . how do you deal with the fact that the U.S. is going to make you a smoldering, radioactive hole at the end of that? Well, if you can hold American homeland targets at risk, that might induce caution.feedback
