How Do You Solve A Problem Like North Korea?

Friday, May 29, 2009

South Korea's Yonhap news agency reports that North Korea test fired yet another short range missile today. This would be the sixth missile launch since the North's nuclear test on Monday. Our partner, The New York Times, is reporting this morning that the U.S. may push China to ban North Korean flights through its air space to prevent the transfer and proliferation of nuclear materials. New York Times correspondent David Sanger joins us with a look at the U.S. response to North Korea's rogue behavior. He's also the author of The Inheritance: The World Obama Confronts and the Challenges to American Power.
