Awakening U.S. moral self-confidence: ‘When did America forget that it is America?’

This article was written by IWP Research Professor Dr. Paul Coyer and published in a special edition of The Washington Times entitled “North Korea’s Nuclear Threat: Assessment, Global Responses, and Solutions.”

Amid the plethora of security threats the world is facing today, North Korea, with its fourth nuclear test on Jan. 6, long-range missile test on Feb. 7 and firing of short range missiles in late March, has been doing all it can in order to ensure that it gets its share of attention. Its ICBM program has made significant strides, and it is also making progress towards a miniaturized nuclear warhead and operationalizing a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capability, which would give Pyongyang a survivable nuclear deterrent. And the regime’s proliferation activities, particularly with Syria and Iran, have posed an even broader threat.
