Missiles/Missile Defense

The ‘Missilization’ of Conflict in Northeast Asia

2016.4.12号(4/ 5発売)

Earlier in the month, I wrote a short op-ed for Newsweek Japan on missiles and conflict Northeast Asia. Originally, they wanted me to write something on North Korea’s latest tests. But everyone writes about that, and all the talk of missiles and missile defense up here got me thinking about the larger issue that drones, missiles, and other cheap air platforms increasingly look to me like the wave of the future.


Enough Dithering, South Korea. It’s Time to Deploy THAAD Missile Defense


Will South Korea Eventually Feel Compelled to Bomb NK Missile Sites?




The picture to the left is the poster from a South Korean film in which a North Korean coup forces South Korea to launch on air-strike on Nork missile sites. It’s not very good (it’s the Top Gun of Korea), but it’s the closet pop-culture reference I could think of to the argument I make below.
