Abstract

This paper argues that a peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear disputes greatly depends on the U.S. strategy, since that country has enough capabilities to control the negotiation process, whereas the Norths resources are quite limited. Therefore, it suggests that accurate identification and analysis of the evolving positions of the United States and their underlying causes at various levels are essential. The paper has found that the key explanatory variables include the Bush security teams ability to understand the international constraints that limit the practicability of the Bush doctrine and domestic politics that could tie the Bush administrations hands while, at the same time, prompting it to readjust the course of its foreign policy.
