The 37,000 U.S. troops in Korea increasingly generate animosity, particularly among younger South Koreans. Meanwhile, North Korea has brazenly engaged in nuclear brinkmanship, practically daring the United States to attack, and demanding bilateral negotiations. The U.S. troops—a mere tripwire force with little military value—are caught in the middle. Should policymakers alter the American security guarantee for South Korea? How might relations between the United States and both North and South Korea be improved? How should the United States respond to the North’s threat to build nuclear weapons? What role should other regional powers—China, Japan, and Russia—play? Please join four experts for a timely discussion of these issues.
