News of North Korea's recent nuclear tests have drawn attention to the hermit kingdom as of late. President Obama claimed in a response that the United States will never accept North Korea as a nuclear state. Libertarians have long held heated foreign policy debates centering around this individual threat, with Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson claiming it's America's #1 threat to national security. But will cooler, more non-interventionist heads prevail?
Austin Petersen, host of the Freedom Report podcast on The Libertarian Republic news sites discusses the past and present histories in the nearly century-long conflict that pits ideals against realities.

Will the Un dynasty end in war, or dissolve into a humanitarian crisis that will stretch the limits of international aid and outreach. All this and more on the Freedom Report podcast.
