Career diplomat Christopher Hill ’74 ponders North Korea’s launch of its Unha-3 rocket, stating the question has never been whether the country was going to abandon its efforts to combine a nuclear warhead with an intercontinental missile – but what the rest of the world plans to do about it.

“In fact, the challenge posed by a country that behaves with such impunity, that so recklessly jeopardizes its neighbors’ security, needs to be decisively confronted. But the question remains how,” writes Hill, formerly the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq and Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia, and currently dean of the Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, in his latest opinion piece for Project Syndicate.
