Have its recent advances been so dramatic and significant to force the United States to wage a preventive war? No. The crisis we now find ourselves in has been exaggerated and mishandled by the Trump administration to a degree that is deeply worrying and dangerous.

No. La crisis en las cual nos encontramos ha sido exagerada y mal manejada por la administración Trump a un nivel que es profundamente preocupante y peligroso.

In Washington, there is a conventional wisdom on North Korea that spans both parties and much of elite opinion. It goes roughly like this: North Korea is the world’s most bizarre country, run by a crackpot dictator with a strange haircut. He is unpredictable and irrational and cannot be negotiated with. Eventually this weird and cruel regime will collapse. Meanwhile, the only solution is more and more pressure. But what if the conventional wisdom is wrong?
En Washington hay una sabiduría convencional sobre Corea del Norte que alcanza a ambos partidos y a la mayoría de la opinión de las élites.

Él es impredecible e irracional y no se puede negociar con esta persona. A la larga, este régimen extraño y cruel colapsará. Mientras tanto, la única solución es más y más presión. Pero ¿Qué sucede si la sabiduría convencional se equivoca?
