“The Korean crisis has now become a strategic threat to America’s core national interests.”

“North Korea is an international problem, but it’s not a problem that threatens our security” 

Professor Jeremi Suri, Austin Examiner. April 3, 2013.

One gets the idea Professor Suri is willing to be flexible in the op-ed you wish him to write.
