North Korea has been increasingly belligerent with its missile tests in the last few years, and especially the last few months. The typical US/world response is to slap some sanctions down, move a fleet, fly some planes over the peninsula, and say some flowery politician stuff.
The Obama administration did not do enough to curtail this rogue regime. You can gain a better understanding, and possibly admiration, of his decisions by reading a detailed interview about The Obama Doctrine.
President Obama fundamentally believed that, “real power means you can get what you want without having to exert violence.”
This pursuit is noble; however, it may be time to use a different approach to address the increasing threat posed by North Korea. Kim Jong Un has not responded to our diplomacy (rightfully so, as the US has a history of overthrowing world leader).
The US can exert its power in two ways – through its overwhelming military force or by a new more aggressive diplomacy with China. President Trump may be uniquely positioned to solve this problem as a new president who has not been afraid to challenge existing protocols and traditions.
