About "Good News from North Korea"
This week, North Korea announced that it would no longer test nuclear missiles, saying that it had no need to. This may seem like a win for diplomacy, since the most visible part of the North Korean nuclear program is the test rockets. But, on inspection, this new policy could be quite dangerous. In the past, rocket launches have given us clues about how advanced North Korea weapons are. Without launches, it’s harder to track nuclear progress. In addition, North Korea hasn’t entered an “stop testing” agreement with other countries, meaning that North Korea can resume regular activities without having to worry about an auditor.
In this week’s release, you get to dive into the murky but hopefully quickly clearing waters of North Korean geostrategy. Other topics include a bevy of investigations, a discussion of the rights of people to speak and states to legislate, Mexico’s response to migrants, Spain’s response to ETA, food safety, the International Monetary Fund, Nicaragua’s efforts to fix social security, and whether or not a new Cuba will be prosperous under its new leader.
