In 1947, George F. Kennan published his famous “X” article in the journal Foreign Affairs, outlining his containment doctrine and his long-term prognosis for the Soviet Union. Dr. Bruce Cumings will do the same for North Korea, arguing that containing that leadership will be even easier than it was with the USSR, since the North has no expansionist goals beyond the Korean peninsula. Such a strategy requires patience, and the conviction that over the long run, North Korea will evolve internally and cease to be a problem. Dr. Bruce Cumings is a professor of Korean history at the University of Chicago.
