Jan Ting on War & Peace
CARPER: Now that North Korea is where it is, we ought to talk with them and engage them directly.
TING: The reality is that we're talking to the North Koreas all the time, formally and informally. So that channel of communication is open. The key to any of our plans succeeding in North Korea is the cooperation of China and Russia. We ought to remember how Communism dissolved in Eastern Europe. In our contingency planning, we ought to think about how people can get out of North Korea. We need to reassure China that they won't be stuck with a million refugees. We ought to have alternatives in North Korea instead of only military solutions.
CARPER: We had a West Germany and an East Germany, and we were able to keep the lid on there long enough until they could become one country again. Our challenge with North Korea is to keep the lid on until those natural family attractions can go together and create one country.
