Question: After reading the articles in the URLs below, please review http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/5-triggers-new-korean-war-14880 .Using the URLs below, support your arguments for:

1. What might precipitate a preventative war against North Korea? Based on the scenario you choose (you can choose 1 of the 5 triggers or create your own), argue how these issues should be handled:

2. Regime change – Should it be immediate and what are the consequences? Should the US act alone or in concert? With whom?

3. Democratic transition – Which agencies (US, regional organizations, or supranational organizations) should be tasked with “bringing democracy” to North Korea? What pushback might occur in the region?

4. Humanitarian intervention – What issues would you expect to face in a preventative war against North Korea in respect to its civilian population? How important is assessing risk to civilians in any war? Last, on a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being least effective and 10 being most effective) overall, how well does preventative war really work in solving international conflict issues? Give an example of a recent conflict to demonstrate your rating. What’s a better approach?
