North Korea

“In the Asia Pacific in the 21st century, the United States of America is all in.”

That was President Obama, speaking to the Australian Parliament this past November. As the United States refocuses its foreign policy and sets its sights on Asia, a drama is unfolding in North Korea.

Since the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world has held its breath. For more than six decades, diplomacy, fear and luck have helped humanity avoid another atomic attack. But with North Korea's recent nuclear test and Iran's atomic ambitions, the next members of the 'nuclear club' may also be the world's most dangerous states.

Guests on this program include:

America Abroad analyzes the history of America's relationship with Korea before and after the Korean war; the nuclear crisis with North Korea in 1993-1994 that brought the United States to the brink of war; and current expert opinions and citizen attitudes in the United States and South Korea on the future of Korean security and the role of the United States on the peninsula.
