Playing a Game of Chicken with North Korea
While Washington and Beijing anticipated rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula until the end of April, North Korea was not as aggressive. The authors argue that North Korea’s actions during the April Crisis suggest that Kim Jong-un’s US policy is that of ‘real coercive military capability.’ Emphasizing that the assertive stance by the US in responding to North Korea also contributed to the increased tensions, the authors predict that the cycle of provocations from North Korea will likely continue. With this prediction, the paper poses an important question of how long the cooperation between the US and China will last.
