Aaron SteinDouble Dragon: Open Source and North Korean Missile Launches

Why did North Korea just test two Scud missiles? Was North Korea responding to the US-South Korean military exercise? Does the pairing of conventional and unconventional missiles pose a unique challenge for military planners in the future?

Today, Jeffrey and Aaron talk North Korea’s missile tests, the Dear Leader’s burlesque style approach to propaganda pictures, and the stability/instability paradox.

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

Jeffrey Lewis, “Smerch or Toksa,” Arms Control Wonk, June 29, 2014.

Scott LaFoy, “June 29th Hwasong-6 Imagery,” Rice & Iron, July 4, 2014.

As always, you can subscribe to the (now better sounding) Arms Control Wonk Podcast on iTunes.
