AEI scholars react to North Korea's nuclear test


American Enterprise Institute scholars Nicholas (Nick) Eberstadt, Michael Auslin and Dan Blumenthal react to North Korea’s third nuclear test which brings the country closer to its goal of pairing an intercontinental missile with a nuclear payload:

“The existing North Korean government will not stop testing nukes and missiles until it can be sure to successfully target downtown Los Angeles. Our guys don't seem to get it: the North Koreans are methodically preparing to fight and win a limited nuclear war against the United States.” Nicholas Eberstadt, AEI scholar, senior adviser to the National Bureau of Asian Research, and author of numerous books on Korea

“This is the first test that Kerry and Hagel will face. The nuclear explosion proves that American policy has been a failure and that a new path is needed” -- Michael Auslin, AEI scholar in Asian Security Studies

"There may be little to nothing the world can do now about the fact that is has allowed the North to become a nuclear weapons state. But it can and should treat North Korea like one big criminal/slave state . . . "
-- Dan Blumenthal, AEI resident fellow Asian Studies
