What to do about North Korea

This is one of the best foreign policy columns I have seen in a while. Probably because it comes not from a journalist, political pundit, or diplomat, but from a private citizen with intimate knowledge of the nation in question, North Korea.
In this hard-hitting piece, Joshua Stanton assails the failure of the US and the UN to stick with meaningful sanctions against North Korea. He lists 10 non-military actions the US can take to put real pressure on North Korea, and argues convincingly that if they had been followed consistently, Kim Jong-Il’s regime would be far weaker than it is today.
