There's an easy answer to the North Korea problem. Unilateral free trade with them. South Korea should do free trade with them, too. We shouldn't make them, but it would be in their best interest. Koreans, like PSY are misguided. They specifically blame us for keeping the two countries from reuniting. The only way this can happen is through free trade and peace. I'm sure China would be happy to pressure them to liberalize a bit if it meant they had to give their ally less free shit. They fight against sanctions, but they'd be be crazy to fight against peaceful commerce. Maybe North Korea would refuse, but no one's tried it yet. I think it's time we try.
