This paper provides a brief history of Korea and attempts to explain why the United States should take a hard-line approach to North Korea in its diplomatic actions. It looks at how North Korea has recently developed and launched long-range tactical missiles able to carry a nuclear payload. Additionally, North Korean has pursued research and development into nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and developed a massive conventional military force that is of major concern to the stability of the South Asian community and the international community at large. It examines how history has shown that North Koreans can't be trusted to adhere to a treaty honestly and how, if the United States does not try to contain this threat, the situation will be a time bomb waiting to go off, possible a nuclear time bomb.

From the Paper:

"On September 2, 1945, the Japanese representatives signed the official Instrument of Surrender, bringing an official end to what became one of the deadliest, and most brutal wars in man's history. After World War II, the Korean peninsula was split in two and in 1947, the U.N. to back the creation of a democratic state in Korea. However, the Soviet Union rejected the U.S. initiative and refused to allow U.S. and U.N. officials into northern Korea to conduct elections with the northern half coming under Communist rule of dictator KIM Il-song, who died in 1994. However in late May of 1948, South Korea with the help of the U.S. and the U.N. conduct free elections, and Syngman Rhee, a devout anticommunist, was elected its first president. The 38th parallel became the boundary between the two countries."
