A new Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Independent Task Force report, A Sharper Choice on North Korea: Engaging China for a Stable Northeast Asia, finds that the United States' policy of "strategic patience" with North Korea will neither halt that country's recurring and dangerous cycle of provocation nor ensure the stability of Northeast Asia in the future. To the contrary, the Task Force warns, "If allowed to continue, current trends will predictably, progressively, and gravely threaten U.S. national security interests and those of its allies."
