North Korea: A Hinge Moment?

Is the North Korea situation about to be a positive turning point in the U.S. relationship with China or is a "catastrophic military conflict" in our future? David Ignatius, the Washington Post foreign affairs columnist (and the Council's speaker on November 29), examines the possibilities after the "amping up" of rhetoric in the fact of missile threats and vows of violence.  Tickets to the Ignatius program featuring a discussion of foreign affairs and his latest novel, The Quantum Spy, are available here.
