Aspects of Israeli Deterrence With a View to South Korean Applicability

Global Politics Review, 2015, vol. 1, issue 1, 95-107

Abstract: The situation on the Korean peninsula has shown to be in a stalemate, despite new levels of hostility and threats between both nations. It would seem that the North Korean regime has successfully gone through another power transition with Kim Jong Un. The issue of nuclear proliferation in the Korean Peninsula remains unresolved and tensions rise as the North Korean rhetoric increases, along with their efforts to develop new nuclear capabilities. South Korea has to consider alternative methods of nuclear deterrence, as the assurance of the nuclear umbrella from the United States has not stopped the North Korean intentions to become a nuclear country. This essay considers South Korea’s applicability of Israeli deterrence measures, their contexts are very different from one another but they also can provide insight as to how nuclear countries assert their power and substantiate their threats.
