Aaron SteinThe Cruise Missile Conundrum

Are cruise missiles proliferating? Are the North Koreans in the cruise missile business? How has open source helped analysts track cruise missile proliferation?

Today, Jeffrey and Aaron discuss North Korea’s latest youtube sensation, Dennis Gormley’s Missile Contagion, and the likelihood of cruise missile proliferation.

Jeffrey and Aaron discussed a number of articles during the podcast:

Jeffrey Lewis, “Translating a Noun into a Verb Pyongyang Style: The Case of North Korea’s New Cruise Missile,” 38North, June 16, 2014.

Jeffrey Lewis, “When A Cruise Missile Is Just A Cruise Missile,” 38North, June 19, 2014.

Dennis Gormley, Missile Contagion: Cruise Missile Proliferation and the Threat to International Security.

Jeffrey Lewis, “Cruise Missile Proliferation,” Arms Control Wonk, August 27, 2014.

    Perhaps we need a Cruise Missile Defense Initiative. Oh, wait, http://tinyurl.com/nd4ywkl . Problem solved.

    “Jeffrey Lewis, “Cruise Missile Proliferation,” Arms Control Wonk, August 27, 2014.”

    I am guessing the date was supposed to be August 27, 2013 and not year 2014.

    Sorry for the nitpick
