Target North Korea, Pushing North Korea to the Brink of Nuclear Catastrophe by Gaven McCormack published in 2004. North Korea has stated repeatedly that it will give up nuclear weapons if the US stops threatening its existence. The more we bully North Korea, the less likely it is to stop its weapons programs.
“Any freedom delivered by cruise missile would be ephemeral at best, while normalization of relations in the region will open the way to the liberation of the North Korean people. In close collaboration with their compatriots to the south, they will choose, when windows are opened around them, what government and what ideology they believe will best serve them. War could not solve anything fifty years ago, and all that has changed since then is that its destructive force has been immeasurably increased.”
