Mar 09, 2017 North Korea: Getting Beyond Tactical (Weapons) Measures
In this op-ed, featured in The Wall Street Journal, NPEC's Executive Director examines the merits of deploying tactical nuclear weapons.

But South Korean officials this week made it clear that they are anything but eager to see these weapons redeployed. The U.S. would be foolish to ignore their concerns. Redeployment would be a huge mistake.
